I get good longevity, 8 hours and sillage is good as well, 4 sprays max.As for presentation, the box is very nice, the bottle is quite heavy and is ink black which is fitting, a simple but powerful design, and the cap clicks in which is always a plus. My only qualm with this fragrance is versatility, to me this is more of a special fragrance and I don't wear it often.Sillage much more discreet than I was expecting (which is a good thing) and longevity respectable. it is still vetiver dominant, and I'm still getting that effect where the odd waft, maybe 1 waft of every 4, makes me feel borderline-nauseous. So this one is the original mixed blessing, or curate's egg. I live in Poland, where the weather can be a b*tch. I will buy one from Lalique official shops for 94 euros to see the difference. I have not worn it outside yet but that will happen in time. It starts off a little overpowering, but not for long. Certainly, the moody, isolated, brooding forest vibe is the entire point of this fragrance. The only negative I have is it has lots of the ISO super molecule which causes some people, including myself to quickly get olfactory fatigue -- like within the hour after application! However, despite the olfactory fatigue issues for some of us, I can almost guarantee even if you as the wearer become anosmic to this scent, you'll still be projecting, and probably more than you realize, depending on how much you applied.I don't want to have to make this much effort to like something and won't be buying ... When it's raining and everything is in a grayscale, EN is a perfect filler. This is a gem, well balanced, long lasting, and the price is great too. What you're left with is a mature, manly fragrance that has people coming sniffing you. I bought Lalique because I read about its darkness and woodiness. I super like the smell, a mysterious and dark, absolutely for more sad cold days (not sunny). Silage is starting quite strong but turns to mild fast, which is ok, as you don't smell the whole room with it, but strong enough to be noticed. I am 27 and like it and I will wear it often, but I would not wear it just a few years ago when I was in college. I think I know why I love it so much - it reminds me of Comme des Garcons fragrances, which are some of my favorites. I had to pretty much take a bath in it to get decent projection and some longevity, but at bucks online that isn’t the end of the world. And while I sometimes wish it were more approachable, I still respect it as a genuinely beautiful and authentic fragrance that stands alone amidst a sea of followers. Therefore, I suggest do not over apply this fragrance because it becomes extremely synthetic if you over-spray. With many fragrances I often get better longevity spraying my shirt.Now I know why I always smell a lemon note when using this! For that go with something more "common smelling" as The One, YSL Nuit, Boss bottled, Terre, Dior Homme or even Sauvage or Fahrenheit. Very poor longevity but smells like something that is literally 5x the price. If you become anosmic to this scent quickly, I suggest next time do a single spray behind your neck and let it be. The single spray behind the neck is the only way I learned to get the most enjoyment out of this fragrance.after little research i found that there is a genus of cupressus (cypress) known as Cupressus macrocarpa, and when its foliage is crushed or rubbed by hand, one can smell a lovely lemon aroma out of it, this type of cypress must've been used here. Every time I get greedy and add more sprays so I can get better and longer sillage, it only ends up making me more anosmic.
This might be the one scent which could win me over to vetiver as a primary ingredient; yet on the other hand I'm still deeply ill at ease with it.This has absolutely no bitterness or armpit-BO or the really pungent reek which makes some masculine vetivers unbearable to me.Instead it's amazingly citrussy, seems almost transparently airy, and is refreshing rather than crushing. There's never a time or place where this would be the go-to scent. The ink, while slightly synthetic, balances out the profile.It's almost gentle, and the way it shades into a real inky smell at the end is really admirable. I don't want to diminish the quality by saying this is only for goths, vampires, or mascara aficionados. The overall effect is atmospheric like nothing else I know.I had expected this to be almost acrid, butchy, moody, darkly spicy thing, but no - instead it's oddly reminiscent to me of Byredo Bal d'Afrique, all outdoorsiness and wide open spaces. Encre Noire is very weird perfume, smells nice on other people. it's extremely similar "95%" to Woody by Rasasi in smell and performance, and very close to Desquared he wood 2 which i own both of them. Average sillage for me, i dont know if my bottle was well stored. A previous review said this isn't a fragrance, but rather a mood. Sadly, I just can't find a time or place to wear it.
It's fall time and I wore this on a gloomy day and something must have clicked because I could not stop smelling my hand, the smell was so hard to put a finger on yet so simple, it kept drawing me in and making me smile each time I smelled it. It smells really natural to me and is perfectly suited if you are outdoors on a colder day especially if it rains or is gray out.
