Black is a unisex scent. It's in the dry woods family, and its' top notes are Black Tea, Rosewood and Bergamot. What makes this fragrance a winner for me tough, are the heart and base notes. Heart notes are Cedar, Oakmoss and Vanilla; base notes are Amber, Sandalwood and Musk. It's woody and spicy... only slightly sweet. I love the masculine edge of this scent worn on women, and the feminine edge of this scent worn on men. Spray one wrist and rub them together in the morning. It's all you'll need to last through the day. Repeat once more if you're going out on the town, if you must. I typically wear this scent paired with L'Occitane Notre Flore Cedre, which also features very rich notes. Notre Flore is more feminine than Black, but does have a masculine appeal. Top notes Wood sap and Grapefruit; heart notes Cumin and Tobacco leaves; base notes Cedar and Tonka bean. Because the scents are so strong, I have a small perfume bottle which I mixed a bit of each in. Having the scents mixed avoids having to spray twice, which I feel would be too overpowering. The scents are beautiful together and individually.
