This is one of my most expensive purchases per ml in a substantial sized decant from a decant seller organization widely known to be reputable. I have stored it responsibly.

I am sad that somehow I cannot smell or perhaps understand what is so incredible. Maybe I cannot appreciate the fragile subtle quality of rose damascones.

If only I got some of the notes listed in …

Dense, rich, heady 80s floral. Nombre Noir is to rose what Samsara is to jasmine. The "Wall of Sound" production style applied to perfume (Wall of Scent?). Not the kind of thing I wear often--or outside the house. Something I wear for myself, now and then.

It evokes deep, wine-colored velvet with a peach lace overlay. I can see what Luca Turin meant about it being …

I would give this a 3.5 if I could. This parfum, to me, smells dated. Dated in a sense like been there, done that. The sample I got was not bad, but it has that overpowering quality like the Opium parfum. The wafts I got of this continuously all day, while at first were nice, grew to be uncomfortable, like sitting too close to some perfumey women at an opera.

I get the prominent …

I recently acquired a small 4 mL mini of this legendary scent.

Straight out of the bottle, it has a dark, rosey, plummy, chypre quality, reminiscent of SL Rose de Nuit (which of course came after it). The rosiness is intense, like a rose so deeply red that it is black. At one end, it quickly evolves a deep smokiness that brings to mind gentlemen in velvet smoking jackets, smoking fine …

I get the prune and woodsy smell. And I've been lucky to get several of the REAL samples.The osmanthus is strange,intriguing and addicting.This is a wonderful scent. It does not make me swoon, but I would (and have) keep buying it again. Too bad the big bottles are not available.

All my instincts are saying that I should be writing a *rave* review of NN...that I should be getting bleary eyed searching for NN on the net. I'm a huge SL fan. I love virtually all of his scents and Luca Turin declared this to be one of the five best scents of all time. I think I'm just going to have to go out and find a tatoo artist who can print "philistine" across my …Read more
