Japon Noir Fragrance Reviews

K1

By far Japon Noir carries the same gene of the earlier Ford releases. The same leather, same fungal effect and same amber. Japon Noir is samurai's blade. A penetrating fresh amber which is not for warm weather.

The fragrance unfurls with vulgar and slight appetizing citrus and spicy blend, composed of cloves and cumin and probably cinnamon. Then shades of jasmine and androgynous amber form the fragrance. The complete fragrance has unidentified manner of classics around fresh crispy vetiver and dusty leather, ornamented with luxurious amber which is not Ambre 83 accord (a classic warm oriental amber accord built in 20's). And as expected, Japon Noir is not an oriental perfume though it's an amber leather one.

It's crispy, fresh bitter and smoky, dark and warm and acrid. It has good longevity and mellow sillage. Several rumors indicate it is discontinued, personally, although I didn't search to emerge the truth, I believe that for its globally disappearance.

Japon Noir by Tom Ford Private Blend for women and men
عطر جابون نوا من توم فورد الإصدار الخاص للرجال والنساء
تم اصدار هذا العطر ضمن باقة البرايفت بليند سنة 2007
وجميع اصدارات هذه المجموعة متوفرة وما تزال تنتج حتى يومنا هذا بحسب علمي
سوى هذا الرهيب جابون نوا فلقد توقف اصداره منذ فترة وأصبح الحصول عليه صعبا للغاية
وربما مستحيلا في بعض المناطق
جابون نوا أعتقد أنه المرادف لكلمة واحدة هي
الرهيييييييييييب
ما أن تبدا بنزع الغطاء والضغط على الأوتومايزر
حتى تتفجر من حولك قنبلة عطرية حقيقية
لا يمكن أن تعبر عن هذه الرائحة سوى بكلمة واحدة
الغموض
هل رأيت يوما محاربا إفريقيا قد تجهز للحرب وخرج لتوه من خيمته الجلدية السميكة
وقد كست الأصباغ وجهه ليرهب أعداءه ويخفي كل معالم وجهه الحقيقية
ويرسم بدلا منها قسمات تظهره قويا جلدا قاسيا لا يهاب الموت
الجلود + البرجموت + البتشولي + الفيتيفير
كلهم معا دفعة واحدة
من الصعب في البداية أن تميز واحدا دون الآخر
تماما كهذا المحارب الأفريقي
الذي تعمد اخفاء كل معالمه الحقيقية خلف هذا القناع
يمكنك ايضا أن تشم بوضوح رائحة دخانية
ليزداد المكان غموضا وعتمة
هناك من سيعتقد أن العطر صادم وخانق
ولكن تأكد أنه بعد قليل سيغير رأيه تماما
ما رأيك بالياسمين في أنقى حالته وأروعها
ما رأيك أن تنثره الآن في طريق هذا المحارب
ولكن لماذا فما الذي يمكن أن تصنعه هذه الزهرة الرقيقة بهذا المحارب الذي ملأت رأسه صور ذهنية كلها تعبر عن الحروب والقتال والقسوة
إنه حتما لن يلتفت إليها، بل إنه في الغالب سيطؤها بقدميه الجافتين العاريتين الغليظتين وهو في طريقه لملاقاة أعداءه
ولكن تأتي الإجابة مختلفة تماما داخل عالم جابون نوا.... فالعالم هنا مختلف تماما عن خارج هذه القنينة العطرية الفريدة
فهنا تختلف القواعد
فلقد ألقى المحارب بحربته ودرعه على الأرض وانحنت قامته الفارعة
وجثى بركبتيه على الأرض ليلتقط الياسمين المنثور بعبثية فوق أوراق الأشجار الجافة المدخنة
وما أن ملأ الياسمين ما بين كفيه حتى رفعها إلى وجهه
وتحولت دقات الطبول ورقصات الحرب إلى معزوفة هادئة من نسمات الياسمين التي أخذت تحمله بعيدا عن دخن الحروب ورهبتها
واعتدل المحارب ناصبا قامته حاملا ما جمعه من أزهار الياسمين
تاركا سلاحه ملقى على الأرض
وها هو يعود من حيث جاء وقد غير وجهته ناسيا وتيرة الحروب ونداءها
وقد ارتفع الدخان وتلاشى أثره فما يرى إلا منه إلا سرابا مستوحشا
وها هي الشمس ترسل خيوطها الحارة اللامعة على سيقان الأشجار لتصهر ما تجمد بين لحاءها من راتنج الكهرمان
وييبرق المكان من حوله بهذا الوميض الكهرماني الذهبي كلما وقعت عليه خيوط أشعة الشمس التي تدخل مزاحمة سيقان وأغصان هذه الغابة الكثيفة
لتنبعث رائحة العنبر وتزداد قوة كلما مر الوقت وانصهرت حباته الصمغية لتسيل على سيقان الأشجار وتقترب أكثر فأكثر حتى تكاد تلامس الياسمين الموجود بين كفي المحارب الأفريقي
العطر أروع من كل ما كتبت
لقد غامرت بشراءه دون تجربته
والآن استطيع أن أقولها ضمن مرات بسيطة
لقد فزت - لقد فزت - لقد فزت
العطر يستحق 9.5 من 10 فقط لأستمر بالبحث عن الأفضل ولا تفتر همتي أو يهدأ أنفي ظنأ أنني قد حصلت على نهاية غايتي العطرية
وربما تكون هذه هي المرة الأولى التي أقيم فيها عطرا بنسبة من الدرجات
العطر رسمي جدا - ذكوري لا أتخيله على امرأة مهما كانت
ثبات العطر وفوحانه ممتازان
ولكن جماله أعلى بكثير من مجرد الثبات والفوحان
العطر مميز بشكل لا مثيل له
حتما سيكون ملفتا لكل من يعشقون العطور فستستوقفهم رائحة عطرك بمجرد دخولك للمكان أو اقترابهم منك
لو أسعدتك الأقدار ووجدته في أي مكان فلا تتردد بالشراء
ونصيحة أخيرة
لا تلتفت للسعر مهما بالغ البائع في سعره مستغلا ندرته وتوقف انتاجه

The combination of notes in Japon Noir is harmoniously presented from the initial spay till its drydown. This scent is rather mysterious in its own way, unique and has the appeal of exclusivity and richness. It's dark, little bit smokey( has a slight similarity with Tom Ford Extreme), combining leather, patchouli and spices in a best possible way. It lasts a long time and has above moderate projection.

Japon Noir is dark, rich, mesmerising and incredibly powerful. WOW was my first thought when i purchased this fragrance (luckily before it was sadly discontinued) and I knew that I was holding something very special in my hands. This is probably one of the more masculine fragrances in the Private Blend collection but it could still very easily be worn by a woman. It has a split personality sort of mentallity. It can be quite heavy and dominant with the heaviness of the leather and patchouli but it also has a subtle kind of sweetness from the Jasmine and Bergamot which help the fragrance avoid being "simply dark". Instead its versitile and very sensual. I detect some incense in the fragrance which also adds a bit of an Oriental touch, it sort of makes me think of Geisha's and tea-houses where they'd entertain men. Which fits well because this fragrance certainly has a seductive and serious side to it. Just wear it and choose how your destiny.

I love this scent and wear it to boot.

It encompasses the notes (earthy and woody) that I like. I must amp the floral notes more that the leather. The dry dowm is subtle.

Perfect for me. :)

Dry woods, a little something vaguely oud-like, and some lavender are what I smell at first, very strong and concentrated. The lavender contributes to a “masculine-fougere”-like feel throughout the evolution of the scent. After the first half hour or so it becomes sweeter, and even woodier than it was at the beginning.

Despite “spice bouquet” being listed as one of the notes, I don’t find this particularly spicy. If there’s any spice at all it’s some ground spices that have been sitting around so long that they’re lost a lot of their scent and mostly just smell dry and woody, suspiciously like vetiver.

I have no idea what “porto noir” is supposed to be other than some sort of miscegenated language construction that’s listed in the official notes and is supposed to sound impressive. Maybe it’s what smells like Sterno fumes to people on Basenotes. There’s a subtle undercurrent of powdery florals, but it doesn’t really smell like jasmine, it’s just sweetly ambiguous. There’s no obvious leather, either.

After about 6 hours, it has dried down to a light vanilla scent. I would say that overall, this is a clean, sweetish, aromatic woody scent, that’s well-made and pleasant to wear.

based on the beautiful reviews here, i had to give japon noir a try.
at first, it is very cloudy... not dark, just very subtle and smoky.. sort of cured. the smokyness is even slightly salty which makes it terrificly interesting.. something in a way i have never smelled before. but then, all of a sudden, it changes drasticly in somthing that strongly reminds me of jicky. just a little warmer and softer without the animalic and edgy notes.. maybe more like shalimar. i think its because i smell a whole lot of lavender. even if it is not listed, it is what i smell loudest... strong lavender, with a little softness of vanilla and amber... and for me, the leather i was looking for wasnt as loud as all the other notes, just a slight touch. so this is how it stays... a little edgy but soft, with strong lavender, citrus and ambery-vanilla notes and slowly fades away.
as i already said, what i enjoyed most were the first 10 minutes... the smell of a room full of cured strong and salty smoke but it amazes me how fast the scent changes from that soft, mysterious smoke into a strong jickyesque lavender-vanilla... and i am so happy i didnt give in to buy myself the perfume worth 220euro after the first 5 minutes, because when the lavender came out, i wished it would fade as soon as possible... to my relief it did. so on me, the lasting-time wasnt what i expected at all from a tom ford fragrance. it was gone after a few hours.

This is one of my favourite among TF Private Blend. It starts with bergamot, leather and vetyver; jasmine appears a little bit later. Patchouli is there, but not into you face annoying like in some other fragrances. This is an amazing truly unisex perfume. My boyfriend and his friend fell in love with it as well. It's dry, leathery/floral, gorgeous on men and women equally. Thank you, Tom!

This is very, very spicy so if you dont like spicy orientals i'd stay away.

It's really lovely though. I get a citrus and ginger blast up front, this then calms a bit to a ginger, cinnamon and jasmine heart with a bit of vetiver. After a few hours i get a powdery amber accord, cinnamon still with a hint of the ginger and a faint bit of leather. This part lasts basically until you wash it off, or at least it does on my skin.
The changes in development are quite subtle though.
Its a strong scent, so a little goes a long way. Probably best for Winter.

Having spent a great deal of time "getting to know" this perfume, i can say that its stunning.

Incredibly spicey and incensey, and dry. Lingers for hours and hours.

I have heard that this is considered one of the more masculine private blends, but i actually think a woman could easily wear it.

Say what you like about the extortionate price of this line, but it is quality stuff.

This smells so like unburned incense sticks it is unbelievable!

Thats not a bad thing, its lovely and as with most private blends, lasts until you wash it off.

I find it hard to pick out any particular notes in this one.

Out of all the private blends collection, this is one of the more masculine scents, however don't let that throw you. It's very unusual, as part of the private blends launch there was a beautiful casing with a small bit of all of the fragrances in the collection. The beauty in this is that it BEGS for one to mix the scents!

That's the beauty, I found that on its own, this scent really didn't hold a candle to the others, at least not for me, but in blending I found it added a lot of depth and richness to the others (one simple post-Private-Blend mix was my combo of this scent with the amber).

I really love the Tom Ford brand, and this collection, this scent really explains why. It's very thoughtful. Obviously this collection has very masculine motifs however, within the packaging and fragrance combos it shows there was a lot of thought behind it and that really, this collection is much more geared to seduce.. and that means man or woman.
