Amazingly human
This Narciso is not one of the undercooled and distant Narciso fragrances.
No, he ranks rather with Ambrée and Poudrée - both of which come along from my point of view rather sweet and (by Narciso standards) relatively warm.

The plum in the opening is already sweet, but we are not dealing here with the typical autumnal plum, but rather with a just so ripe fruit.
This sweetness gets support from Heliotriop - I find the fragrance but overall not too sweet.

After a certain wearing time (about 1 hour) something comes to light, which makes this Narciso amazingly approachable: he humanizes! And not in the animalistic, but much more in a pleasant-innigen sense. You could almost say intimate.

Quite remotely, this -very sexy- humanizing reminds me of Musc Invisible
However, Musc Noir is sweeter and fruitier than Musc Invisible, which the latter lacks entirely.

Musc Noir is certainly not a loud fragrance, but I can imagine that it could be just right for pleasant interpersonal moments. It will be hard to get too much from my point of view and smells sexy without knocking anyone out first. ?

The durability is rather mediocre on the road, but I think it will come into its own better in increasingly warmer temperatures. I will of course still try out.

And who may now still look at my video about it - please very much ?

Young Maroussia
An older colleague who always wore great perfume recently retired. Unfortunately, I didn't ask her what fragrance she was using. And over and over again, I was annoyed by it. Unhappy, sad, and also eager to buy, I headed to a city perfumery I'd never been to.

"Can I help you?"
To which I replied, "I'm looking for a new perfume."
After 12 perfumes, which I had declined with thanks, the saleswoman stopped in front of a large Narciso display, "Musc Noir, we have it brand new!"
Zack, sprayed on once.
Immediately struck me an attractive wind full of musk.

Then, my realization: this one looks familiar! I take. IMMEDIATELY!

I bathed myself in Musc Noir. And still want to do it (I do!)
This combination of plum, musk and leather (I'm sorry?) is just absolutely feminine. I have to admit, leather, of any variety, does not sit well with me. But Musc Noir implements the suede in the base perfectly, the fragrance becomes thereby not a piece masculine, as I had previously assumed.

As I learned later, my former colleague always wore Maroussia

At some point I bought the fragrance as well and although I learned to love it on my colleague, I am too young for the Russian Tsarina. I can't wear Maroussia.

But if you compare the fragrance pyramids of Maroussia and Musc Noir, you will recognize some similarities (heliotrope, cedar, rose, especially musk)
I remembered thinking in the perfumery, "This one looks familiar!"
And I was right with my guess.

Musc Noir is the younger Maroussia base for me. The enveloping musk, soft cedar with heliotrope and rose, expressive plum and buttery suede.
However, the "noir" in the name puzzles me, though by now I think I smell something like incense in the first few seconds.

PS: This perfumery has become my top destination when I'm in the area. Whether I'm looking for a new perfume or not.

Masterpiece
I don't know how they do it but Narciso Rodriguez fragrances always have that certain something, that DNA, that extraordinary yet pleasant touch. Maybe it's the musk, or a special kind of musk paired with white flowers. It is clear that the manufacturers indicate other fragrance notes than they are actually present in the perfume, that usually remains a secret. But here is still something mysterious in it.... Somehow I detect a woodruff note and the plum also makes an appearance. But it's not a sour plum. More like an overripe plum, but one that prefers to linger in the background. The scent is soft, sweet, powdery yet light. The longevity could be better and when you spray the scent on it's not a boom in your face scent but more of a light, silky veil that lays gently over your skin.... a bit like being nestled in a soft cloud. Totally interesting, not ordinary, super nice wearable, sexy, classy, elegant but not too extremely elegant. Simply a masterpiece! And it is a perfume without a lot of frills so actually under the motto "less is more" but please do not misunderstand, he is anything but inconspicuous. It is rather the aura that surrounds you when you wear Narciso Rodriguez Musc Noir

Sheer intimacy
Creamy fragrances are exactly mine and unfortunately rare.
All the more I'm happy about this accidental discovery.
Close to the skin, warm and soft - very attractive and intimate. Especially now in autumn, it has something comforting. Residual summer warmth!
A fragrance like a super soft cashmere sweater. He virtually melts into my skin.
With the I feel at home - more is not really possible.

The feminine autumn in a noble flacon
My first review... Yippiiehh... and also only because the fragrance not only convinces me, but also because it is simply more than a fragrance that deserves to be brought to people. He forces me downright to be reviewed by me.

My Backround: Own meanwhile as a perfume nerd several fragrances of various directions.

Musc noire is but by far the most interesting fragrance I have ever smelled.
You can describe the vibe of this fragrance in just one sentence:
He humanizes!
He spreads a warm smell similar to the human skin scent. This is perhaps the reason why so many find him pleasantly cuddly but also sexy at the same time. Mostly the one excludes yes the other. But here is just so! Our skin scent is also known to stimulate exactly these things (in the best case and of course only with the right hygiene mind you).

Fragrance:
The burgundy soft plum you truly take in the opening, it is opulent, but not unpleasant for my nose.
If you are not a fan of this type of plum, the fragrance opening can probably quickly deter.
You don't have to be patient to learn that plum quickly settles into a person's freshly washed hand and melts into the warmth of their skin. This resulting new fragrance begins to come alive and take on a human form from then on. The rose is present. It nevertheless remains modestly in the background, telling the story of the fragrance and thus giving it a dark red passion. She says goodbye after about 30 minutes. She leaves the stage to the main actor, the human being.

In person, this fragrance would be a healthy, well-groomed, casual-elegantly dressed woman with few frills. She doesn't wear garish or pastel colors and knows how to behave. She is smart, witty and sociable, stands out with her pleasant and slightly mystical nature. She is not visually perfect, but has that certain something. A woman with whom the man wants to cuddle or even go on, simply because she seems attractive and familiar.
Funnily enough, I can not imagine the fragrance on women with blond hair and light eyes. Maybe because for me it suggests brown and black tones through the dark-smelling fragrance notes and evokes darkly elegant autumn colors.
But is also just my personal perception.

In general, the fragrance is warm, with an autumnal dense sweetness, a soft freshness created by dark soapy notes ( probably it is the musk in combination with the suede).

Conclusion: a truly unique fragrance with high recognition value. For me, the feminine autumn in a bottle.

The only drawback: the sillage is not exactly remarkable ... Maybe it should be but also so ... Our skin fragrance gets to smell yes only the one to whom we allow it?

It could be objectively good but not my cup of tea as I dislike most powdery and rosy scents. I lack some freshness or sharpness here.

Musky-powdery with a little bit of plummy rose. Very subtle+smooth suede note. Easy to wear - an inoffensive everyday clean scent.

The opening of this perfume feels so vintage, but not necessarily in a good way. I can't get past that to enjoy the drydown.
