I don't get much from Black Cashmere, just thin incense on a cold woody base. Interesting in theory but it didn't "speak" to me.

So I love this. Its 85 degrees out and I am wearing it. It is light and dark at the same time so I find that I can wear it in the heat. I have the new round black bottle and I do miss the organic stone shaped bottle but other than that, this is totally unique and uplifting for me. There really is nothing like it.
The only fly in the ointment for me is that this is fleeting on me. By …

This was a gift from a friend. The most striking thing about the packaging is how (dare I say) sexy it is! Lol! The bottle is an organic shape and has no product info on it. It does not have a flat surface for it to stand upright. Nope. It just lays, lol. It looks really cool in a modern environment (imho) because it looks as if it could be a small sculpture.

Now to the fragrance …

To keep this simple, I'm a "leather/wood/amber/musk" addict with a bright, happy floral side. After sampling hundreds of fragrances at this point and owning over a 100, with Boudior and most of the Chanels as HG's, it was love at first and 50th sniff of Black Cashmere. It has all the sexy comfort of Boudior but less in your face brashness. It truly "feels" like a …Read more

this fragrance is nothing like that fabulous description below with ferrets and seals and Zsa Zsa Gabor mentioned. but I can't say i'm disappointed. it's a wonderful campfire in late fall, with sandalwood incense burning right up front and a warm cup of chai in front of your nose. there are no animals here, just trees and earth. no aging celebrities or aftershave. nothing retro …Read more

Well, I never tried this, but I'm sure it must be wonderful. It's got all the attributes of all the great scent: discontinued, almost impossible to find (even online), and if you find it, it costs the earth. Shoot.

I do really like this fragrance, however have a real problem with its staying power. I literally spray it and 2 minutes later it is gone, even on my clothes! Really upsetting, won't be repurchasing. But I gave it a four because it doesn't seem like many others are having this problem, so it must just be me!

Holy labdanum, batman... This is a glorious spicy amber-oriental, perfect for winter; if you have had the pleasure of being in a home heated with real logs in a wood-burning stove, you may recognize the characteristic scent that fills the house in this fragrance. When I first sniffed it I immediately went back to that distinctive childhood smell. Getting more specific and more technical …Read more

Snowflakes are billowing around in a furious cloud, the sky is gray, and the air is frigid and bitter, it's the perfect time of year to pull out Donna Karan's Black Cashmere.
Black Cashmere is not what I would think of as cuddly or soothing, but it fits my mood when the temperature drops. This is a dark smell that brings to mind incense and burning wood. I don't think …

I have both the old formulation/bottle, and a sample of the newest (released around 2008). LOVE them both. This is dark, sexy, spicy, and has the staying power of an annoying relative's visit during the holidays. It took several tries before I could truly appreciate it's beauty, but now I'm hooked on this fall/winter fragrance staple. I do believe it is too much for warmer …Read more
