Brand Christian Dior
Eau Noire is one of the three perfumes from unisex collection, introduced in 2004. All three bottles (Bois D`argent, Eau Noire and Cologne Blanche), were designed by Hedi Slimane, who was in charged for Dior’s prestige Pour Homme pret-a-porter collection. Francis Kurkdjian is the creator of this fragrance.
Grassy – spiced sage note and pleasant and fresh anis open the composition. The heart follows with lavender, Virginian cedar and coffee, and the base is warm and powdery soft with leather, vanilla and violet.
Just before moving back to the U.S. I was in the lovely Bon Marché in Paris trying to sniff one last time some original scents. At first sight I fell in love with the tall, cylindrical bottles of perfume by Christian Dior. One after another, I read the labels of each and picked four of the scents whose names intrigued me. The last one I smelled was Eau Noire. It was powerful and rich. I couldn’t get it off my mind as I left the store to contemplate buying it. Three years later, I order it and I don’t like it. What’s changed It doesn’t lift the senses as it once did. Did they change the formula Have I changed I think it’s both. Tant pis.
