L'Artisan Parfumeur have introduced a new unisex fragrance called Noir Exquis (Exquisite Black Coffee), which is an olfactory interpretation of a first date in a pastry shop over the dark brew and sweet edibles...
The composition is signed by perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour. Most of the notes in it are actually flavors, in the real world.
The eau de parfum features notes of glazed chestnut, candied orange and walnut leading to a heart of orange blossom, Brazilian coffee and maple syrup. The base rests on Macassar wood, heliotrope, vanilla, tonka bean and white sandalwood.
The coffee note is based on a coffee absolute so as to create intensity, depth and character. Aura is said to be ambery, warm and "charismatic."
Prices: 112€ and 88€ for 100ml and 50 ml respectively.
