Unusual quality incense
I've (kind of) blind bought Reminiscence Noir and it took me at least 2-3 full wearings to actually love it.
It's an unusual scent at first, a very smooth combination of fresh and oriental notes: moist-resinous eucalyptus with a fresh bergamot welcome you in top notes, followed by a smoky non-sweeten balsamic incense middle stage, very realistic (reminds me of our orthodox churches in Sunday). The lovely base notes are coming their way much further (6-8 hrs), with few sweet flowers, amber and a faint vanilla, all surrounded by the dry incense vale.
A good quality not-so-known scent and a valuable addition to my collection. My personal rank 9/10. Recommended.

Dry yet sweet incense...
This opens with a great, dusty dry incense/pencil note without any sweetness at all - kinda like Gucci PH or a cleaner blast of Balmain Carbone with incense and peppery coriander. The sweetness then comes slowly creeping from the opoponax disguised as a resinous vanilla wrapped in amber. I do get a hint of the menthol/eucalyptus note every now and then through the opening, but it seems quite subdued to me.
This combination of "opposing" notes makes it very unique to me - it's a very rich and modern scent with good projection and longevity.

I'm not sure I get the gender determination on this one : on top of this page it says "for men".
IMO it's for everyone who enjoys a dry incense...

Criminally underrated gem!
Noir by Reminiscence opens with a really powerful and hyper-dark blend, somehow fresh somehow stale and dusty (and also fairly harsh initially), in a way similar both to many niche scents, and several vintage masculine scents (Arrogance, Trussardi Uomo...). Basically it’s a really gloomy concoction comprising bitter-minty herbs (eucalyptus), balsamic woods, patchouli, incense, a shady and sour resinous base with a bold indolic-urinous musky aftertaste, softened by a subtle ambery-resinous accord and brightened by a light citrus-floral accord which is barely perceivable initially. I think I also get something salty (vetiver?), and perhaps something like leather too. Basically Noir can be roughly defined in my opinion as a really dark herbal-woody-resinous Oriental fragrance mostly tending to mossy-earthy-incense territories, and for a while with quite a bold indolic-roasted note underneath, well contrasted by a refreshing quite bitter citrus-minty head accord. It reminds me of several fougères as I said, but with a decidedly contemporary texture – so shortly, don’t worry about smelling “outdated”: this is a modern, sharp, polished scent. The drydown is really pleasant, more tending towards soft, velvety notes of smoke, incense, resins, sandalwood, still dark overall but less raw. It also emerges better the soapy-dusty accord of violet and rose. All smells solid, rich, and also quite unique in a way: I named a couple of scents as a rough reference, but actually Noir smells much “new” to me to many extents – new, yet nostalgic in some way. It’s interesting because it can easily be pulled off by fougères nostalgics as much as “niche-heads”, which I guess makes it a particularly solid scent. Surprisingly creative, although a bit linear once it enters the (endless) drydown. Another cheapo (I forgot to mention that; 35 eur/100 ml here) easily surpassing so many expensive scents quality & creativity-wise. Addictive!

8-8,5/10

Complex and unique scent
Think about resins. Then add an eucalyptus note.

Now a bit of vanilla. Shake well with a incense note. Now you have Noir.

This is a very complex fragrance that is mostly about resins with eucalyptus that sometimes can burn your nose.

Very unique and not easy to wear.

Sillage, projection and lasting power are medium-high. Definetely thumbs up!
