Description

Perfume Name Caron Narcisse Noir
Year Introduced 1911
Perfumer  Ernest Daltroff
Gender  Unisex
Notes Orange blossom, lemon, bergamot, and petit grain; rose, jasmine, and jonquil; Persian black narcissus, musk, civet and sandalwood

 

Caron Narcisse Noir was created by Ernest Daltroff in 1911 for the House of Caron, and the movie Sunset Boulevard and Gloria Swanson shrouded it in dark crazy, conjuring up what the perfume smelled like - dark, sensuous, a little dangerous and not exactly all there - in a good way!!

Centered around sunny orange blossom, Narcisse Noir covered this flower with the Dark Side of the Moon, amped it up with civet to make it roar with a little sex.  This scent smolders in a dark, edgy craziness that isn't for everyone, but it is a perfume of its period.

This is the EDT, eau de toilette version of this scent, and it is not as dark and feral as the vintage parfum, but still a great, interesting orange blossom scent.

    Beautiful! In the manner of vintage Bal a Versailles.

    Finally! Something that can compete with my vintage Bal a Versailles parfum. A great civet-y orange blossom. Nothing cloying here. If this is the sex kitten version Narcisse Noir, *what* is the vintage parfum like?! *Must. Try.* But even this edt is incredible.

    I got my wish!!!

    When I started to purchase samples very recently it was with one idea in mind. I needed to find a replacement signature scent. After years wearing Borsari's Violetta Di Parma, I had to face up to the fact my skin just eats it up without trace after five minutes....


    A few Violet based samples later, I was becoming desolate. So to relieve the boredom, read some reviews on Basenotes, and ordered a few random samples, simply because the reviews were interesting.

    I opened Narcisse Noir, sniffed it in the bottle and thought, oh noooooooo, it bore a striking resemblance to a cheap cologne my aunties buy in Cairo, a lemon scented industrial strength purpose built cologne produced to splash all over to cool you off and refresh until you can get home and take a shower, you buy it in litre bottles....

    Anyhow, nothing gained nothing lost, I dabbed it on my wrists and a dab on my neck, it was 40C that day anyhow, lemon doesn't hurt!!!

    Something miraculous happened, a warm orange blossom scent was all around me, I have orange trees, and each spring I always wish someone could bottle that scent so it actually does smell of orange blossom.... and here I was, transported to a mystical orange grove.

    I'm new to understanding and naming the notes in perfume, but as the minutes and hours passed, my innocent orange blossom became warm, sexy and very grown up, and oh joy, I could still smell it after 8 hours. I ordered a full bottle the same day, Im addicted to Narcisse Noir.
