Versace Crystal Noir by Versace Review
This is one of the few instances that the expectation based on the bottle is something that can actually be observed on the liquid inside. Crystal Noir is dark, but not too dark, and sensual, yet not overpowering. The florals, in particular the gardenia, carry the scent from opening to end for us, only to be made slightly muskier by the base. There is something synthetic by the end and development is close to nothing, but we can excuse those for the creamy scent Crystal Noir delivers.
The florals, particularly the gardenia, feel creamy and rich
We find that this has decent sillage and average staying power
Sensual, ideal for wear on a romantic night
The musky base do not overpower the flowery accords
Not much development to be observed
Save Big At:
When Crystal Noir was made for Versace in 2004, what Donatella Versace had in mind was a fragrance that is both delicate and sensual at the same time. It is for this reason that gardenia, blackcurrant, violet and jasmine lead the other accords in the concoction, which would later on be made more mysterious by musk and amber, although that is not an unusual route to take. This desire is also translated through the bottle which takes a dark shade. Perfumer Antoine Lie is the name and the nose behind the scent.
