Frederic Malle Noir Epices is a warm and exotic scent that evokes a spice market. Created by Michel Roudnitska, it was born out of a fragrance originally created for his olfactive ballet, Quintessence, which combined dance performance and scent. The scent was based on the theme of the five elements and the element of fire was illustrated with a fragrance inspired by the Spice Route. Notes of orange, rose, geranium, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, pepper, patchouli, cedar and sandalwood make up this edp, eau de parfum.
Reviews of Frederic Malle Noir Epices
From This Side of Perfume - "As I wear this, the rose dies down and gives me the impression of dried crushed rose petals, rather than a living blooming flower. This is where the spice really starts to come into play. I detect clove and some light playful pepper, but I don’t get a sense of the cinnamon or nutmeg. There’s nothing to tip Noir Epices into gourmand territory, and no base of vanilla. In fact, there’s nothing remotely sweet about this fragrance, which is fairly atypical for spicy scents."
From Perfume Nerd - "With easy use, Noir Epices is one of the most stunning perfumes with orange/citrus notes that I´ve encountered. If you spray three sprays around your neck with Noir Epices you are the one to blame."
