Le Labo describes their scent The Noir 21 as a perfume that “combines depth and freshness, softness and energy via everlasting oscillation between the sunshine of bergamot, fig, and bay leaves and the depth of cedarwood, vetiver, and musk.” As a Le Labo lover myself, I’ve to confess this one is certainly in my prime 3 favourite fragrances they’ve (& they’ve A LOT of excellent ones.) With this one you’ll be able to actually scent cedarwood, which makes it good to pair with Byredo’s Bal D’Afrique. This Byredo perfume has notes of African marigold, bergamont, violet and cedar wooden; this scent is a kind of that stands out amongst the remainder. Byredo‘s web site describes this scent as Ben Gorham’s ‘love letter’ to Africa and is concentrated on magnificence and fantasy. Each time I put it on I immediately really feel extra elevated and complicated. Bal D’Afrique additionally has a Moroccan cedar wooden base, so these two pair collectively delicously. If you wish to scent elevated, woodys however not too candy, this mix is for you.
