This smells like Stephane Humbert Lucas created a nice, woody, resinous masculine fragrance.....and then set it on fire. Deep, rich, burnt, smoky, camphorous, meditative, biblical are a few words I would use to describe this fragrance. Definitely not a crowd pleaser, but very unique and will definitely give the connoisseur something to chew on. Black Tie event only.

Powerful fragrance,dark,religious. An evocative scent, night and mysterious. powerful resins,solid which combine beautifully with frankincense and woods... It 'unisex', but more on the masculine side in my opinion, for the winter days is ideal. Captivating. The sillage is strong, huge longevity.. nice parfum!

Sillage: 9./10
Longevity: 10./10
Scent: 9./10

Overall: 9./10

Received a sample of this today. I detect oud in the composition but it's not listed in the notes; could be a byproduct of the teak wood, cedar and olibanum notes. This is a more smoky, balsamic, leathery fragrance. No sweetness, very masculine. Slight medicinal/camphor notes. Reminds me of a leather fragrance, but isn't like the typical leather scents.

Very nice scent here. I really like the peety opening! Damp, dark and smoky. For those who like adventure in their scents, this one is without question of very high quality ingredients. Not for the office, but excellent during wet, cold and rainy nights! Well done! Thumbs up!

Resinous and woodsy for sure. It smells like tobacconist that used to once exist, who sold liquorice sweets and jars of pipe tobacco and all the furniture and fixings wood be circa 1940s. An old man coughing his lungs up, sucking on a very strong menthol cough sweet would greet you. Above a sign saying Lucky Black Cat Cigarettes priced in d. I cant say its worth the money, well actually it's not. Lesser frags do a far more competent job a tenth of the price. You have been warned. I would imagine this is what a 40 a day smokers lungs would smell like. it very old smoker man. You can just imagine the puppet maker Geppetto would smell like! If I seriously walked into a place smelling like this people would be spraying Febreeze into the air, and opening windows or at the very least put their noses in their arm pits or any ones arm pit, except the one sporting this vile frag! Why did I buy it? Who knows? who cares? I have given up the will to smell now!
This smells like a resin product from a tree botanical name Boswellia carteri which they spread on in India for Mumps, or sprains and swellings.

I have to agree a 100% with Roge'. I loved the first 15-20 min on my husband. Thought I am going to eat him live..then it softens up. That woodsy lemony combo was so seductive it was crazy. I would love to buy him a bottle, but sillage could be better.

This is another add to the list of dark, exotic, resinous and woody fragrances in a messy and to be honest synthetic way! if you like fragrances like "Nasomtto Black Afgano","Nasomatto Duro" or even "Olivier Durbano Black Tourmaline" there is a high chance that you like this one too!

The opening of this fragrances is a mix of lots of woods and resins in an exotic way. I can't point exactly at the notes because it's like all the notes dissolved together and you have a monotone juice!
The scent has a bitter and kind of smoky aroma which gets much stronger in the mid and base and in the mid a sharp peppery aroma something like black pepper also joins to all these dark masculine notes.
The scent is linear and it doesn't change that much. it gets only darker, smokier and more woody as time passes but the smell stays pretty the same!
Projection is strong at the start and it gets even stronger in the mid and base and longevity also is great. it can pass 8 hours easily.

All and all, it's a very dark woody, smoky, spicy and resinous scent which is quite masculine but as i said before many times, scents like this could easily get boring so be aware of that!
I used to love scents like this but not anymore!

راستش این عطر گرون قیمت یه عضو جدید دیگه تو گروه عطرهایی هست که بسیار تلخ و قوی و دودی و سنگین هستن. اگر از عطرهایی مثل ناسوماتو بلک افگانو یا مشابه هاش مثل کارنر بارسلونا کویر و این تیپ عطرها خوشتون بیاد احتمال زیاد از اینم خوشتون بیاد چون تقریبا تو یه سبک وسیاق هستن

رایحه ابتدایی این عطر با ترکیب قوی و سنگینی از رایحه های دودی و چوبی و تلخ شروع میشه به همراه مقداری هم حس شیرین
نمیشه دقیق از رایحه خاصی اسم برد چون راستش رو بخواین بوی عطر به نظر من سینتتیک هست و فقط خواستن یه بوی تلخ و چوبی سنگین خلق کنن. انگار همه رایحه های چوبی و دودی و صمغی رو ریخته باشن تو یه همزن و خوب با هم مخلوط کرده باشن تا یه عطر یکنواخت در بیاد
بوی عطر یکنواخته و تغییر چندانی نمیکنه. فقط به مرور زمان تلخ تر و دودی تر و قویتر میشه و در کنار اونا یه بوی تند فلفلی شبیه به بوی فلفل سیاه هم بهش اضافه میشه تا سنگین تر و تلخ ترش کنه

پخش بوش همون اولش هم زیاده ولی با گذر زمان زیادتر هم میشه و ماندگاریش هم به راحتی از 8 ساعت فراتر میره
در مجموع عطر بدی نیست اما بوهای تلخ و چوبی یکنواخت و خطی مثل این بدون کاراکتر خاصی خیلی راحت میتونن خسته کننده بشن. مخصوصا که ماندگاری زیادی هم داره و تغییر بوی آنچنانی هم نداره
شخصا تا یکی دو سال پیش عطرهای اینجوری رو دوست داشتم اما الان دیگه نه به اون صورت

Where to begin with Black Gemstone? There’s a lot going on with this convoluted fragrance, from the minute it hits the skin to the dry down an hour or so later. Consequently, it comes off as a bit inarticulate, but that doesn’t necessarily keep it from being a fun perfume.

Like an infant’s first time on a drum set, everything gets smashed all at once—loudly. There's no delicate unfolding of notes; it’s a total cacophony from the get-go. The overall aesthetic is one of belligerent moodiness, bearing a slight resemblance to both Black Afgano and Sova in density, force, and, to a lesser degree, in the notes themselves. It comes off like a combination of western “oud,” resins, woods, and saffron, with a distinct and misplaced hay note running through it. This all hits you at once upon application, but after a few minutes, the scent sorts itself out into a more direct rubbery saffron-oud sweet combo around which all the other notes orbit.

I picked up something that smelled like gasoline, so I imagine there’s an indolic jasmine tucked away in there. Also, there’s a rose/berry nuance that comes and goes but announces itself more formally later on alongside what seemed to me to be a tobacco note. Off to the side, a chilly citrus can be detected, but the most weirdly prominent thing is the honeyed hay that recalls Sova most of all. Needless to say, all of these notes and accords don’t exactly fit together, and the result is like a pulsing, sweet mass from which various faces reveal themselves but only momentarily. After an hour or so, a base emerges from the rubble, but this was a bit of a stumbling block for me. While it wasn’t one of those generic sweet masculine bases we’ve been seeing lately, it had some sweetness but it was mainly resins (and possibly something coniferous) yet the resins weren’t that complimentary. Sadly, this was the worst part of the scent—and the longest lasting, which kind of sank it a bit. Ultimately, despite the barrage that seems to be going on, I’d boil Black Gemstone down to a rubbery-saffron-and-resins kind of affair.

On the one hand, I find it fun. On the other, I’m surprised that it exists alongside scents like O Hira and Oud which are, for lack of a better term, refined and a bit more tasteful. This is fairly anarchic and seems to lack any real cohesion, but as mentioned prior, it doesn’t detract as long as you’re okay with such runaway aesthetics (which I tend to be). In this respect, it feels (but doesn’t smell) a bit like Interlude Man in that everything is launched at you without any logic, rhythm, or narrative. It’s certainly characterful, but it’d be a hard sell for anyone who prefers their fragrances refined. If arcane, schizophrenic, seriously convoluted scents akin to Black Afgano or Interlude Man are your thing, this should probably go on your radar. But if you prefer minimal, classical, or clean styles, then you might want to spend some time sampling this first before laying down serious money for it. Personally, I’d wear it occasionally (it's a tad too sweet), but I actually like some of the things it resembles a little more and I’d take O Hira over it in a heartbeat.

Black sugar stone:
Opens so sweet that disguises the beauty of EVERYTHING: the cedar, the myrrh, and the olibanum that is virtually inexistent!

All there is to Black Gemstone is a dull and persistent sweet accord (a la montale’s wood & spice, whilst the anis note is replaced by a parsimonious myrrh!!!), on a sweeter base of tonka and amber…

Roge’ is right on two instances: Black Gemstone is more adequate for the Ladies who prefer their sweet amber to be a little tempered (a la ambre sultan, or ambre fetiche…); also, Black Gemstone sparkles for 15 minutes, and then…nothing, nada, rien, and gone…

With the same amount of money ($340), you ‘re better off buying Norne the Majestic, Black Afghano (THE REAL DEAL), and spend the remaining $30 on a 1.7 oz of dunhill desire blu (for gym use), while Stephane 777 paints some more, and dreams about his failure…

In the dry down, any Amouage (a bad one such as Journey man) will gain from this so-called gemstone…

Posh bottle, bad perfume… Adieu Stephane, and please train some more with Nasomatto and Slumberhouse who have better labs than 'les mecs' at Nez a Nez…

Sample before you buy…

I am excited to review a 777 because Bond, Creed, and Ford's supremacy is real and it needs to be shattered. Let me preface my discourse and dispel any hunch that Black has any similarities to Black Afgano or Jeke. This upscale oriental opens to the world escorted by medicinal fruit with the robitussin-like properties split into a smoky side and a lightly tinged leathery side. The citruses contribution isn't met with tartness nor does it gushes vivaciously. The lemon provided is baby-faced in comparison to the standard lemon we're accustomed to. During that period, you will already have sniffed your arm upwards 15-20 times(It's that interesting). The composition swiftly moves to a more comfortable zone revealing all the aromatic elements which lodges itself snugly onto a tropical bed of woods. In this phase, Black gemstone is in its most lady-like space. End the end, you're paying $340 for a formula that is somewhat state-of-the-art with soft sillage, minimal projection and about 6 good hours of longevity.
