Lalique has launched Encre Noire for men, a fragrance developed by perfumer Nathalie Lorson.
Notes include two kinds of vetiver (Bourbon and Haitian), cypress, cashmere woods and musk.
Two concentrations will be sold, an Eau de Toilette and an Eau de Parfum; both bottles are in black glass with stoppers made from wengé wood. The bottle for the Eau de Parfum (shown) was inspired by a 1913 Lalique ink pot. (via osmoz, fashionmag.fr)
Update: see a review of Lalique Encre Noire.
Oooh, I want it. It would be really funny if it had a disappearing ink pigment, so you put it on and it looked as if your whole arm was stained. See, this is why I'm not an executive at a fragrance company.
It is a gorgeous bottle, and if it is mostly vetiver & cypress I'll take it. And not sure how the disappearing ink pigment would go over at counter, but yes, it would be very funny
Lit something at the first smell
I remember this special smell of black/purple ink over the white pages when I was young.
Some hours later it changes, stays … and becomes like in a wet forest full of spring flowers warmed by the sun.
I like it
Good, glad to hear it actually smells like ink! I'm looking forward to trying it.
I have never thought that I will ever get fanatic on men scents! This one is beautyful, daring, sexy, warm and very masculin. Nevertehless it fits perfect on a womans skin.
It's a great scent, agreed.
