The Scent Of A Man Discovery BoxAt first sniff, I was weirded out, wondering why anyone would want to smell like wood pencils all day. I gave it a chance and wore through my 2ml sample. My flatmate wasn't into fragrance but now he wears it and loves it too. I don't get why people say it's a cold weather fragrance - I loved it through the hot and humid summer. I didn't see a recent post about this, but what is everyone's opinion on Lalique Encre Noire?
Cognoscenti claim it returned to form in 2019. I won't say scent wearers find this aroma very pleasing, however, your entourage will respect anyone who wears it unconditionally. The forest fire raged and ravaged the lush green forest here, stealing all life and leaving nothing but scorched soil and dust. Cypress tree corpses systemically dismembered, and dismantled in the rampage where only roots are left behind, smoking embers as far as the eye can see. There’s just bare earth, a slow decay of vegetation and dirty vetiver roots now holding integrity of this desolation together. And from this darkness will be a bold new future, a reset, a rebirth. A man emerges from the embers, bold and unafraid to stand up in amidst the darkness.
I've also tried the A L'Extreme version which to me, is a more woody and warm experience. Both are arguably more wearable than the original but I feel I can wear all 3 as I love Vetiver in it's raw form. Encre Noire is a suspicious, mystifying, and magical perfume to seek sensual pleasures.
I especially like it on cold, rainy days here in Oregon. It reminds me of how my aunt that smoked a lot of cigarettes smelled when I was a child.

Encre Noire is an odd fragrance that I like. My nose picks up primarily the vetiver and the cashmere wood.
Somehow it manages to be quite clingy and nauseating for me. Not a scent for long indoor-stays and also not realy suitable for the warmer days. There are however times I realy enjoyed and liked Encre Noir espacially on the very cold and harsh days it's unique charme is pleasing. best blind buy i've made yet (and at $30 for 100ml, incredibly worth it!) this smells IDENTICAL to an autumn forest after rain on the opening.
Encre Noire , if I could, I would write with it. Encre Noire by Lalique is an enigmatic fragrance, a tale told to a tenebrous, elegant man. It's a woody adventure with vetiver for a hero.
People always love the waft when it passed them. Well I smelled this on a man and I think this is one of the sexiest male perfumes ever. I imagine you'd have to absolutely douse yourself in the fragrance to appreciate wearing it for yourself. Encre Noire is a perfume you'd wear for yourself, and perhaps not everyday. This is not mass appealing, and factoring in the soft projection, Noire is unlikely to yield any complements. Sillage and projection are moderate for the first hour or two, becoming a skin scent after.
I gave it only a very quick smell, but thought it was pretty. I'm fairly sure it is actually a 2003 limited edition that they've brought back visit here for Neiman Marcus. I have a long line of friends and relatives who love my rejects. I love Hiris because it's sharp, metallic and bitter.
Its fresh and woody top notes come from the naturally aromatic cypress. Its stimulating core combines mysterious notes of vetiver, Bourbon and Haitian vetiver with the warm and enveloping notes of cashmere wood and musk. My all-time favorite vetiver fragrance is Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire.
i got a few compliments, but all of them is already 45+ age. but we should atleast acknowledge the craftsmanship in this one. its so unique, the bottle is great, the performance is average still.
I think it is a must for collectors who need to operate within a strict budget. Surprising good and affordable like so many Lalique fragrances from the discounters. For me this smells like herbal grass and liquorice. I really like vetiver when it´s smooth like in Terre d'Hermes Hermès. Encre Noire still manages to be the best one out of the trio as it is overall better executed and stunningly composed. The overall scent can come off as damp, wet, gloomy, some may even find it bleak but it is a fragrance that conveys itself as understated elegance.
Only issue is sillage and longevity are not great. At this price point, and it being a EDT, I won't complain too much.
