Fresh, Tart Orange Peel and Little Else
I have fallen in love with a couple of Malle Fragrances, much to my wallet's chagrin, but Noir Epices is not one of them. I mainly detect nothing but very fresh, tart orange peel or rind just as if I had begun to peel a fresh orange. This citrus note dominates the entire composition for me from... Read more
Christmas Kitchen Uncooked Spice
Noir Epices Applied from a decant this opened with an alcoholic blast that took a good 30 seconds to die down and two or three minutes before anything much could be smelt. Perhaps application from a spray bottle would allow the alcohol to exit stage left more quickly but decants and carded... Read more

Christmas Spice!
This is one which I find so interesting! It reminds me a lot of the other Malle perfume Geranium pour Monsieur, in that it has cloves, cinnamon and geranium. Here the addition is also orange peel and black pepper. It is such a spicy floral mix. I can detect all spices and no sweetness. I think... Read more

Please, NO!
Noir Epices effortlessly fills the last spot on my personal chart of Malle’s fragrances - I mean the worst spot. The bottom of the barrel. I don’t get the “black” and ultimately I don’t even get the “spices” that much as well, or not as I would assume at least. I don’t want my... Read more

Highly addictive
I had to test this fragrance a few times, 4 times to be exactly, to find out how I felt exactly about Noir Epices. The first test it reminded me of Chanel no. 5 and Amouage Gold, the second time I became aware of the spiciness and smelled mostly nutmeg and cloves, the third time I got the orange... Read more

Spiced Orange Tea...
Noir Epices opens up and continues for the first one to two hours with a blast of spiced orange that reminds me very much of a spiced orange tea with some geranium mixed in at the start before focusing primarily on the orange and spices like clove and nutmeg at its heart. The spices remain in a... Read more

Orange Rind Opening Cedes to Spicy Geranium
Frédéric Malle NOIR EPICES opens with a bitter orange-rind scent, but then rose geranium swiftly sweeps in, along with a smattering of spices, the most dominant of which to my nose are nutmeg and cloves. This is a pleasing blend, which I would characterized as a spicy floral or floriental,... Read more

A spicy orange; dense, but not dark. Clove has an interesting, cool touch. At the same time, that makes the fragrance modern.+2
