Too much wanted
This new creation also shows the effort to continue the Caron tradition. I like the idea very much.

A common thread of the old Caron fragrances seems to me to be that they constantly quote each other, so you can always find borrowings of one perfume in the other. Sometimes it seems to me that French Cancan, En Avion, Tabac Blond and Narcisse Noire are variations on the same theme, each with a different emphasis on a different aspect, while masterfully adding an original idea that gives the fragrance something unique. By the way, in my opinion, it's not only Caron that does this. Also the one or other Chanel Exclusif brings for my nose individual components from N. 5 into focus and plays with them
But back to Rose Ébène. The idea of combining the special leather-tobacco theme from Tabac Blond with Rose is actually quite obvious. It's surprising why no one before Jean Jacques has ever done this. Or had Richard Fraysse already tried it and it only escaped me because I had ignored "Secret Oud" until now ?

From my point of view, Jean Jacques unfortunately does not succeed with this creation, neither the call of Tabac Blond nor the great rose fragrances of the house. Instead, for me, Rose Ébène is very close to his own new development, Tabac Noir. For my taste, there is far too little rose to be perceived for the fragrance to have rose in its name.

I find the Caronian leather note with saffron and patchouli and a rather flat rose scent. And then I wanted to follow the pyramid first and smell coffee, latte. But when I follow that, I can't really put coffee out at all. It just smells too much like leather, tobacco and patchouli. Instead, it is rather a strange sweet and creamy note that pushes the scent into the gourmand realm. What's not so good for him, I think. The coffee connotation should certainly add something new to the fragrance and make it more modern. For me, it makes it more trivial
I gave Rose Ébéne a good rating because of the idea to be recognized and the line in which the fragrance is placed. Amidst the abundance of already existing leather and/or tobacco rose scents, I would have wished for more drama for this theme, if it came from Caron, a wow. Unfortunately, that's not what happened with this fragrance
I never liked perfume with coffee anyway. But if coffee is in a caron, I can only imagine this scent with Arabica, freshly ground and combined with suede gloves and a not yet lit cigarette
But not as coffee cream
