Noir Gabardine Fragrance Reviews

The opening of Noir Gabardine smells very much like typical men's fougère, citrus soapy lavender tonka type of scent, which unfortunately is not my favourite category. However, what follows is even more disconcerting to my nose.

A soapy, sour bergamot mixed with weird, plastic-like sweet ripe fruitiness, lies over a quiet, almost praline-like undertone of tonka bean. I don't perceive the bitter, green, stark galbanum that I used to. The overall effect is like a compromise between fresh aromatic fougere men's cologne and the recent sugary gourmand trend.

The sillage is mostly moderate, and the longevity is at least 8 hours. Maybe it's because of my personal bias against aromatic fougere compostions and my relatively low tolerance towards sugary, plastic-evoking fruity scent, I find Noir Gabardine a clash of different popular ideas among designer fragrances, rather than combining them in a more organic way. Therefore, I would not particularly recommend this fragrance given its high price tag and based on my personal experience with it.

Charging 250+ dollars retail price for a scent that smells almost identical to Azzaro Chrome (which i happen to not like to begin with). Are you serious????

I feel bad for the poor innocent buyers who fell prey for this phony scent.

Jesus this is gross. It starts like a 90's sporty "eau de cologne" mixed with a Daim Blond like suede accord. Vaguely salty and a bit synthetic. Then it suddendly pops out a spooky leather-vanillic accord which is just... wrong, halfway between gingerbread and burnt soup. Try to imagine a dry, dark, burnt-rubber leather (safraleine) note mixed with a milky rancid vanillin note. Then this sickening accord fades away again and you're back on the sporty cologne side. Totally disturbing – not in a cool way.

This smells like a 98% match of Ungaro III. The 2% difference in the LM is where you'll find a warmer base of amber, vanilla, and tonka. All things being equal, including cost, I'd still go for the Ungaro.

Sour, green, and flagrantly bitter. Another fragrance, another opening that smells like the bottom of a woman's make-up bag. Not much of a middle. On my skin, the drydown is predominantly bergamot and musk. With a lineup of sandalwood, amber, vanilla, and tonka bean you would probably expect something foodie. To the chagrin of all gourmand lovers, this is not a perfume for the "foodie dudes". In closing, this is a fragrance that makes a strong attempt for some sort of panache. Noir means black; in fashion noir means elegance and in the fragrance world, it can be an enigma leaning towards nocturnal or cold weather perfumes. This is probably the brightest Noir fragrance I've ever tried. I'm confused by LM Parfums direction....

Incredible scent, imo for woman as wel as for men. On my skin it's almost sweet not realley mandarin orange but more in a peachy way and a little creamy. It's not offensive in any way and I can see myself wearing it at the office, an almost for every day perfume because of the freshness of the mandarin and the balmy of saldelwood and amber

The first blast feels like something I've tried before 100%. It opens as a generic woody and masculine aftershave with citruses and sharp/soapy note of galbanum. It is enjoyable, but nothing particularly new or interesting.
As it develops it gets more soapy/clean and plays along the notes of a woody drugstore aftershave. There is a glimpse of hope at the heart part when sandalwood/rosewood combo opens on me, making this more warm, more complex and more elegant. It stays in this phase all trough the drydown.

Quality is really good, longevity is at it's max. The scent itself is very masculine, but good, smells clean/elegant and a bit sexy. As it retails for more than 100 EUR for 100 ml I do not know if one should chase after the bottle as it reminds so much of many other male fragrances.

I got a sample of Noir Gabardine. Tried it on and got disgusted almost immediately. After ~5 minutes after applying it starts to smell something like rotten fruit or worse on me... Can't get it clear, which note ruins it all. Maybe the mix of all of them.

I can smell citrusy notes only at the very beginning, immediately after applying. Later on - longer it stays, more stinky it gets. And no citrus at all... Only really bad mix of tonka and amber.

Maybe it's just my skin, but I truly hate it on me, it smells totally wrong. I'd like to smell it on smbdy else though - maybe it would do the justice.

Designer in disguise. I've nothing against designer fragrances but I'm surely annoyed by generic mass market compositions selling at niche prices. Noir Gabardine is a masculine woody citrus with a remarkable oriental vibe and a strong deja vu aspect throughout. I can't actually put my finger on what other specific fragrance it exactly smells like but it resembles of thousands of modern masculines ranging from Gucci Envy For Men to Armani Code Sport.

A sparkling green citrus opening enriched by some ginger and laying on a generic woody ambery base. No more, no less. Anything but distinctive.

Save your money.
