For sale or swap is a 70 ml full bottle (2 sprays missing) with box of Lumier Noire by Francis Kurkdjian. The bottle retails for $155 at Neiman Marcus. I will sell for $140 (all inclusive) or swap for Amouage or Frederic Malle lines.

Here are some details about the fragrance from luckyscent.com:

The Scoop
\t
Love the association of the words Lumiere and Noire (Light and Black), an attraction and repulsion.

A black hole lit with the image of a mysterious perfume that attracts until it provokes self-abandon. It is the idea of two opposing powers that unite to create a whole that relates, at its turn, a new story. The mention of this duality is imposed as an obvious fact, like the emblematic blend of Rose and Patchouli.

Notes include:
Spiced Rose (cumin, cinnamon)
Patchouli
Narcissus
Mugwort herb



The green facet of the blossom and the dark, earthy whiff of patchouli are pulled into chypre territory by a lash of artemisia (also known as mugwort) - the bitter, green herb that dominates the top notes of Robert Piguet's classic Bandit or Caron's Yatagan - warmed by an oriental blend of cumin and cinnamon. This is a rose tucked behind the ear of Errol Flynn in his best swashbuckling mode, crushed against a young Marlon Brando's torso or ripped by the teeth of a carnivorous lover. Bask in this "Black Light for Men", and you may never want to see daylight again.
