A brief burst of citrus notes leading to a very nice smoky, resinous frankincense, with hints of orange blossom blossom. The dry down is what makes it special - a smouldering incense and woods affair played out at perfect volume: long-lasting, noticeable but never too loud.
An excellent scent - one of the best from this brand. Sadly discontinued.
Very middle eastern. Very holy. Very ancient. Very nice!!
Sahara Noir is a fragrance that was probably doomed to fail. Should have been marketed unisex. Maybe even as a mens fragrance. I think a lot of Women would have a hard time wearing this. There are some similarities to LADDM but with an added shit load of incense. Don't get me wrong, there's lots of other stuff in the mix but this is predominately an incense fragrance. On the whole I'm not a massive fan of incense heavy perfumes but this might just be the exception.
This smells exactly like one of the Montale and Loewe incense based fragrances. Nothing original or special here and easy to see why it was discontinued. It also lasts for hours and kept annoying me throughout the day. Nothing Sahara or Noir about it.
