One Sentence Perfume Review: Eau de Noir, Bourbon French Parfums



















Grim, moody, hard to love--but just so...mesmerizing.

Notes (as near as I can guess): Bergamot, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Incense, Musk

Illustration by Gustave Doré, c.1860s, for Dante's Inferno, Canto 34 "The emperor of the despondent kingdom"

*In honor of Jazz Fest, I'm giving away a taste of my Bourbon French lovelies. The winner will choose decants of any TWO of the following: Eau de Noir, Carré, Bourbon French, Kus Kus, Mon Idée, or Olive Blossom. Leave a comment or email me to enter the draw.
