The sensual aunt
I had expected a good cream scent at first.
How wrong you can be. But the expectation is led quite in this direction by the lovely bottle. The teasing pearl should have warned me On the first spray comes not Nivea but a backflash of coffee and cake with an archetypal aunt. None in particular, but a distillate of childhood memories. Coffee, cream and something you can't really categorize as a kid. You can guess, the aunt has it thick as a fist behind her ears.
A little later comes an animal smell that almost seems cheesy to me. And more manly. That's hard on the pain threshold. I wanted cream, not unwashed guy. Igitt?
The irritation fades away quite quickly, I think I've got it figured out. The skin note is the "base" for a beautiful cream scent that now follows.
But my dear swan, innocent there is nothing!
Gytha Ogg might have felt that way, but it was more likely that she would have had her bright pleasure in the fragrance.
The longer it fades out, the more civilized the whole thing becomes. And it flies relatively fast, so you can take the funny foreplay on yourself.

Top note skipped
Noa snuck into my closet. For me a fragrance that I don't always like, but that's clearly subjective.

On my skin: the fragrance develops very complex. I'm a little surprised, because there's nothing to smell of top note. I smell something herbaceous woody, slightly dark tart scratchy. This lasts about 5 minutes, then the fragrance becomes soft, powdery and warm. I can't sniff out anything sweet at any time. Even after 8 h the scent is pleasant on my skin. Not crushing or killing, rather calm and beautiful.
For me clearly a fragrance that belongs in the colder season of the year, as I did not want to wear the woody herbaceous, warm powdery in summer, that would probably be too much of a good thing.

The scent lasts about 9 hours on me, but the Sillage is only mediocre to sniff out, unless you can get close enough to my neck to do a snief.

All in all a good warm scent, which can be described as cosy and pleasant, but without being too thick or too aggressive

...now he is finally my
Noa, long, always once again sneaked around, always excited after the first spray ... clean, elegant, white, creamy, not sweet .... pleasantly interesting "my" ... but then something comes up .... oh, bähhh .. no, Maggie coffee whatever ... soooo bad, because otherwise he is great. This time I have waited...and actually, this funny note goes away...yippie I thought only...I am enthusiastic....although it's a pity that you have to go through the "unpleasant", but it is worth it. I hope that this remains my opinion, it stands here, freshly purchased, not yet tested. Hope, I don't feel the same way with him as with sensations(jil Sander), who disappoints me (still?) ...interesting, that here are several on Noa and sensations...

Pearly white
I get mainly musk and peony scents, and the coffee barely noticable on me. It's very soft and gentle, clean yet creamy, somehow feels like Lanvin Oxygène without pepper. It dries down quickly into a body scent which is very pleasant in spring and summer. Unfortunately the longevity is around 3 or 4h, a little bit too short for me and the sillage is very close to skin. By the way, the bottle is funny with the little pearl swimming within. The colour and the tranparency are well chosen for the perfume.

baby post bath
I have seen this and dismissed it a number of times as it seemed too neutral, too indistinct to fit into my caravan of bold riches. I don't know what possessed me to blind buy a bottle, perhaps the glowing articles on several blogs had something to do with it. This is a strange one. Not in a bad way. I got clean musk, chinese parsley, grass and brewed black coffee, no sugar. The ingredients really look like a weird mix and it initially smells as the notes listed above. As it stayed on my skin and clothes, I was aware throughout the day of something pillowy soft. Clean like sun dried sheets. With some lingering grassy smell left behind from the washing soap. I was told that I smelt like a baby, during a hug with a loved one. It lasts forever but remains subtle. Not a safe blind buy but definitely worthy of a few tries before passing judgement.

innocent
Today I have received my own Noa. Since I am a Cacharel perfume lover I find this very very nice romantic and uplifting perfume. I would prefer wear this during spring and summer time. It is very aromatic clean and soapy. Longevity and sillage good enough.

Synthetic mess
I don't like this one. I think it smells very cheap and synthetic, too many contrasting notes I suspect. Yes the bottle looks nice from a distance but closer it looks really plastic and tacky. Sorry for those that love it, it's just my take on it. Also very clogging and headache inducing. Just realised my review is describing me lol! I'm tacky and synthetic the irony.

Saying it best
You say it best when you say nothing at all, so the song goes, and this is Noa. Spray it lavishly, this is one that you can go nuts with. I get the world's best cold cream, French of course, as if I'm lathered in it. I love this feeling, my imaginary beauty therapist is at my side and in a little while she will leave me with cafe au lait and something else that I couldn't quite identify at first and then I got it. Fur. It's a cat, a white persian, very fluffy. Or it's an angora sweater that has absorbed the soft, slight scents of the treatment room. Or it could be mink..but then fur coats are polarizing so I won't go there. I hate the bottle. Kokichi Mikimoto would have had a burning ceremony if he had ever seen the bottle. I love pearls, I hate the vulgarity of the Noa pearl and the fake Mother of Pearl top. Grrr. At 4.40 a.m. this morning I rose to cross town before traffic problems escalated in order to pick up my eighty six year old Mother and take her to a routine eye surgery. At that time of the morning you don't get out the heavy hitters, even the florals are just too much. Noa was perfect. I love Noa, cold cream, cafe au lait, cats, dogs and old trouts. It's a Noa day

Comfort Scent
Well this was a surprise! I have previously completely ignored this one, mainly because it was right under my nose. A certain well known chemist chain in every UK high street sells this little gem for next to nothing. It was only through boredom in a long queue to pay, that I idly spritzed this on to pass the time. Oh what lovely, soft creamy goodness wafted around me. Yep an instant sale!

A shower and a coffee
I have been eager to try Noa for quite some time now, so when I finally spied this fragrance in the shop, it was quite difficult to control my excitement. I was like a child let loose in a candy shop.

My initial response to Noa was that it smelt quite fresh and delicate. Like a good bar of soap or the smell of wet hair just after you've washed it was how Noa smelt to me.

The scent actually didn't change dramatically since those first few seconds. It remained clean, soft and pretty.

Noa certainly isn't a loud and offensive scent, it's rather quiet and unobtrusive. I liked the fragrance, however I couldn't help craving a certain kick or a hint of something slightly different to break this fragrance's silence.

Hours later I got what I was looking for, a waft of a coffee note drifting up from my wrist to my nose. Noa suddenly became a mug of hot coffee with frothy milk breaking the surface. It was the warmth that I desired.

It is the loveliness and subtlety which is part of Noa's widespread appeal. The scent is pleasant and tame, perfect for the fragrance wearer that doesn't want their perfume choice to be the talk of the town. Noa blends in well with any occasion or situation.

If you love the smell of your skin the moment you step out of the shower or the scent of warm milk and cream, this fragrance is definitely for you.

flowery-musky with a powdery touch, it's a pseudo-minimalist and very feminine daily fragrance with an average sillage.+1
