Bvlgari Au The Noir was introduced in Europe in late 2015 and is now available in the United States market. Au the Noir joins the other tea scents in the Eau Parfumee collection - Au The Vert (1992), Au The Blanc (2003), Au The Rouge (2006) and Au The Bleu (2015).
Bvlgari Au The Noir was created by perfumer Jacques Cavallier. It has notes of black tea, Damascus rose, tobacco, leather, oud, wood bark and patchouli. The darkest of this tea collection, this is smoky tea laced with leather, tobacco and oud. If you like your tea dark and smoking, this is one you want.
Fragrantica: "It has a slight edge to it, enough to make it unique from the others in the line which are lighter in comparison. This isn't a heavy fragrance though, it is smoky and deep with tobacco, patchouli, oud, black tea, leather. Those are the notes I pick up most. Definitely worth checking out for something that is different and not in your face."
Fragrantica: "On first sniff, it smells heavily of wood and chypre, but it really develops and evolves over a few hours on the skin. The dry down is hard to pin down: it continually shifts from black tea, to oud, to rose, back to tea again...it's sexy and warm, like being wrapped up in a cashmere throw sitting on a leather couch in front of a fire."
