Wow! This is a dark and mysterious fragrance. This is almost unisex and the praline note, thankfully isn't too much or too sweet. I can smell the carnation slightly humming in the background and that very dark base, which has strong similarities to a Caron fragrance. Yes, take vintage Magie Noire and mix in a smidge of Bellodgia and you would get this. Quite a surprising concept for a modern frag! I think this will be on heavy rotation this winter. Love it.
