“One evening, I was crossing the Pont-Neuf; as I was listening to “Rhapsody in Blue”, I paused to look around me: even more so at night, Paris seems to have kept its fabled charm unaltered by time. My imagination was fueled by images and sensations of the City of Light in the 1920s, a time of extraordinary energy and creativity. I decided to create a nocturnal, vibrant fragrance dedicated to Paris of Annees Folles – La Rhapsodie Noire.” – perfumer Pissara Umavijani.
Fragrantica - "This is very hard to dislike. Great gourmand with a forward coffee note and a background of the Issara-style tobacco note."
Fragrantica - "When I put on this perfume, the first thing I smell on my skin is toffee, it's caramel. A camel that has fougere, aromatic sensations, which evolves into a woody toffee, sensual creamy, elegant woody. With a slight alcoholic point. It is a beautiful, elegant perfume, with a fascinating aroma that I enjoy from start to finish."
Fragrantica - "It’s absolutely exceptional and unique! Doesn’t smell like anything Pissara made before. I love the cozy home-like fragrance of coffee and burned sugar with caramel tonka beans. And at the same time it’s fresh, woody and balanced. Quite original gourmand fougère. I think it’s my favorite from Dusita."
Fragrantica - "a lutens-like burnt caramel. quite nice. lots going on, a bit formal or night out on the town. not necessarily a rhapsodie but definitely a nocturne with oomph. the notes blend to create a solid mood, intense, smoky, and bitter sweet. overblooming and a touch of decay. deep goth."
