Top: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Cardamom
Middle: Lavender, Honey, Orange Blossom Musk
Base: Sweet Tobacco, Tonka Bean, Moss
My first reaction to spaying Homme Noir was that it was sweet, maybe a bit too sweet for my taste. The opening of the top notes was refreshing but that quickly rolled into the sweet middle notes. The sweetness of the honey and orange blossom musk made me question if this was the right one for me as it came off a bit too feminine (my opinion) at first. After sometime my concerns were quickly put aside as it dried into its base notes where the sweet tobacco and vanilla like tonka bean combined really well with the moss to create a nice masculine and sensual scent. Even at dry down, the middle notes still remain in the background thus adding to the longevity of this scent. I have found this to be an excellent cold weather fragrance that may just work all year round.
