The name seems well-chosen for this fragrance.

The smell of the sample tissue resembled vanilla tobacco with the combination of heady smoke and concentrated sweetness of vanilla essence.

The Eau de Parfum developed a very distinctive and persistent musty note verging on sweat on my skin. There indeed is a similar perfume which also has this buttery, strangely …

Not a Noire, but rather a pleasant soft vanilla. Rating is based on my second experience sampling from the same bottle two days apart and the very pleasant dry down. I am including both because there are other reviews that seem to go both ways.

The first time I tested VN on my forearm, I got a sweet citrus floral vanilla with a distinctly problematic floral middle stage and a very …

Vanille Noire, as the name suggests a clear note of vanilla, but not vanilla as in pastries or sweetness, but as a spicy, smoky and woody vanilla in the same style as Guerlain Shalimar, hence the "Noire" in the name - noir means black/dark and is usually used for to name perfumes that are more woody and spicy and is more reminiscent of evenings and autumn.

The notes Vanille …

i love this scent, it's perfect for winter, a warm cedar-y vanilla. i've seen it compared to hypnotic poison but it's more woody, deep and serious, though i also love hypnotic poison, vanille noire seems a bit more...mature than HP maybe? the shower gel is lovely too.

I've had this perfume for awhile now, and it's a staple amongst my rotation of perfumes. It's a basic, middle of the road vanilla that dries down with an inoffensive, sandalwood and vanilla scent. Very pleasant to my senses, but if you're looking for something earthy and complex, skip this one. This is the perfect scent when you want to smell average and would prefer to go …Read more

Very similar to the cheaper Bath and Body Works Vanilla Noir on my skin: A clean, perfume-y vanilla. A touch soapy, and very faint, so I had to apply heavily, which I never do as a rule. Still, very nice, but I have a tanker of BBW Vanilla Noir, so I'm handing on this one. Not a creamy, warm or gourmand vanilla.

A deep, sultry vanilla -- baking vanilla, but richer and more exquisite, like the kind you'd use for a dense gateau. It reminds me of Thierry Mugler's Alien, but with less spice. Definitely a cold-weather scent, for use around Christmastime. It smells warm on the wrist and good enough to eat! A cheaper alternative for those who love Alien :)

No matter what I do, regardless my mood and how big or small my budget is at the moment, I always fall for vanilla when I am trying on something new. This fragrance is a GEM! Without going through all the notes and heavy vocabulary, this fragrance will make you feel like you are standing in a 5* French restaurant's kitchen, with a celebrity chef cooking a yummy desert.
The vanilla is …

It smell really nice on me, warm, alittle spice and classic. I have tried so many perfumes, mostly high end and it didn't go good with my body chemistry. I so want to love any high end perfume but I can't stand it I end up stop using them or give it away. But surprisingly I love this bottle and I smell like warm vanilla at the base note, it's even more lovely when I spray on my …Read more
