The Parisian patisserie is so much more than a simple shop- it’s a place of wonder, where exquisite pastry and invigorating coffee aromas set the backdrop for timeless friendships, fierce intellectual debates, lazy afternoons, and chance romantic encounters. It was the last of these things, the idea of love blossoming over eclairs and café au lait, that inspired Bertrand Duchaufour to create Noir Exquis, a wondrous new gourmand that combines the mouthwatering scents of a patisserie with a deep, sophisticated, and luminous base of woods and floral amber that sings of attraction, connection and delight.
Noir Exquis opens with a succulent combination of sweet orange and deep, rich chestnut, which soon opens up to a heart of syrupy maple and a true, full-bodied coffee that balances as perfectly against the sweets as the real thing. As it dries down, a delightful, lightly almond-inflected heliotrope blends perfectly with a creamy vanilla, while a notably darker wood note, described here as ebony, lends a dynamic and romantic touch to smoother, lightly powdery notes of tonka and sandalwood. What Duchaufour has created here is not a mere representation of a patisserie, but rather a capsule of every positive feeling one could associate with such a place. The results are truly lovely, and we’re happy to say that Noir Exquis is a creamy, sweet, beautiful new achievement for one of our favorite perfumers.
