2nosedtwin's Review of Encre Noire by Lalique

Encre Noir - Lalique
Beautiful and very competent perfume that paints an 'ultraclean vetiver with ragged edges still-life' with little but efficient brush-strokes. The opening is green and cool with a 'fresh' paint and small inky note that reminds me of a mix of basil and styrax but probably is just due to a high-quality cypress-wood oil. It is a steady factor with waxy-herbal and resionous nuances that fits the vetiver perfectly. It creates a tight and steady theme of dark ink that alltogether meets the earthy nuances of the vetiver with a clean, light-smoky and soapy-soft woody-amber base. The dryout is warm and cool at the same time which gives it a nice tension and a sort of 'calm' energetic sparkle. Very nice work.
