Balmain's Carbone revisited
A more dry, darker, woodier, kind of more austere version of Balmain's Carbone. Basically take out the subtle fruity-milky feel from Carbone, here you have Graphite. If you aren't familiar with Carbone, then well: "pencil sharpener", and that's it. Shavings, sawdust, wood chips, freshly-cut wood trunks. Nearly nothing else except for a warm ambery frame, and a gentle violet note, which is greenish, discreetly sweet and really subtle. Probably fairly pointless to own both Carbone and Graphite (as I do...), but Graphite is perfectly good as well: more than an inferior "copycat" it smells like a slightly different perspective on the same theme, worth having if you're really into this type of perfumes, or just have the chance to get both for pennies. In other words the quality and the "features" (projection, persistence, elegance, versatileness etc.) are quite the same in my opinion - except for the persistence, which is actually much better here. Solid, easy-going versatile stuff.

6,5-7/10

Thank God, Lorson and Montana for this smoky dark fragrance. I do like it. Smells expensive! Black dark start with semi dark sweet drydown.

These are drops from Earth. They smell like pencil's carbon, though they shine like diamonds. Unexplored jewel, worth every drop! Love them.

If you truly love pencil shavings, you might want to try if you can handle the mentholated ketchup in the opening.
