I've been thinking of putting this one on my test list. What do you think of Lumiere Noir or MFK in general, guys?

Frederic Malle: En Passant

On the whole, I'm not a big fan of the MFK lineup. It's hard to describe, but I find so many of their scents feel very matte and earthy, even the ones without notes that one typically describes as earthy. Lumiere Noire is like that too. It starts out very promising: it's an earthy, dirty rose, featuring patchouli and cumin. But as it dries down, it becomes quite flat and lifeless; it feels more like a powder than a perfume.

For the sake of fairness, though, I should add that I haven't seen others online describing the MFK lineup that way, so it may very well just be a quirk of mine. Lots of people online have a very high opinion of Lumiere Noire in particular.

If you're interested in the earthy, dirty rose category generally, there's lots and lots of stuff I'd recommend, including George Sand by MPG.

Amber Oud for me today. (By Kilian)

Anyone tried the Amouage Library Collection? The Amouage Opus VI and Lyric have been in my decant queue for a while but have yet to order a sample, any opinions on them?

Very accurate description, but on me I don't get quite to the simplicity of a powder at the end. Green Bastard, I think it's definitely worth sampling. If ordered directly from the MFK site, I recall you being able to choose 4 3ml MFK offerings for something ridculously cheap like 12 euros. For that price you can't loose. The opening on this is quite lovely and worth the money alone. 

 

Reuniting with Aventus today. I had gotten sick of it for a while but am giving it another go.
