The name seems totally appropriate when you read that the heart notes include black violet and base notes include black vanilla… it also includes pink pepper berries and patchouli. I definitely consider this a perfect evening scent – and I do feel a little bit like a rock star with it on. But saying that, I am more than happy to wear it in the day because it dries down to a nice musky smell that isn’t overpowering like some nighttime fragrances can be.
My boyfriend isn’t all that high-maintenance when it comes to his skincare routine, but he does love a bit of aftershave/fragrance. One of my personal favourites of his is Paco Rabanne XS – it seriously smells good enough to eat. It’s one of those fragrances that when he wears it, it makes me go all giggly.
What I didn’t really click on was that there’s also Black XS Pour Elle… and it’s pretty delicious. Normally I wouldn’t say that a male fragrance would give you the best indication of what it’s female equivalent would be. But with Black XS you can definitely pick up similar notes to the male version.
Overall, I really like this as the female version of the yummy male version of Black XS pour homme. This will be my nighttime fragrance of choice for the festive season!
What’s more exciting than the fact I’ve found a lovely new perfume… is that you can too!
I have two bottles to give away (just in time for xmas too…) – one female fragrance and one male.
