Blue Noir can be considered a palimpsest, a blend that refers to others - mostly, Cartier's Declaration or S.T. Dupont and Terre d'Hermes, plus citric top notes on the blotter, not on the skin, and lactonic musks in the basenotes. Or, else, a blend of its own since these references are set along notes that do not feel too honest to the ones in the pyramid - take cardamom, smell it; next smell BN's top notes. In me, of course, this does not mean BN smells bad, discordant, utterly synthetic or whatever might be the reason behind you not liking something, all the contrary.

Something else that caught my attention were the different experiences when trying BN on a blotter and on the skin - when on a blotter, complexity, sillage and longevity were outstanding. On the skin it proved different, these attributes were not to this extent.

I considered it bottle worthy; it is now in my wardrobe waiting to be included in daily rotations.

Narciso Rodriguez for Him Bleu Noir EdT (pretty long name!) is basically a play on Declaration and Declaration Essence. The cumin is dialed down, and there's a musk note to align it with the aesthetics of the others in the line. It is a bit more polished, refined and modern relative to something like Declaration Essence, but also much less distinctive as it loses what made those Cartier perfumes interesting. Additionally it just wears too close to skin without much development.

It's Cartier Declaration Essence, folks, not Terre d'Hermes. Actually, it's Declaration Essence without the prickly spices, smoky birch wood, or dry lime - ie., far less interesting. Narciso Bleu Noir doesn't smell bad, just pointless. Why does this thing exist?

I get TDH in the opening , but darker and deeper...spiciness creeps in...doesn't really strike me as being sweet...the TDH effect dissipates and allows this fragrance to stand on its own...a multitasking scent...i see this wearable from casual to dressed up...Lives most of the rest of its life as a spicy/musky cedarwood with a slight resiny touch...very wearable and enjoyable...

Just about a thumbs up.

Not a bad effort at all. I get a strong TDH vibe. TDH with extra musk and an underlying spice/mint note. Nothing to blow your socks off but decent for a cheapie.
