Make way for this inexpensive black fragrance
Cigar Black Wood... it does not have tobacco nor some of the notes traditionally associated to dark fragrances. Nevertheless the name is not as misleading as it happens with its brother Cigar Black Oud.
This fragrance is not cloying at all and rewards you with a great black scent. I'm glad to have this Remy Latour creation in my drawer. On top of it I do like dark fragrances.
It opens with a light citrus and spices, preparing your sinus with what is about to come. The heart notes appear almost imediatly to position the heaviest note of the composition - coconut. This note is quite gourmand and it's the main responsible for the enduring sweetness all through the fragrance life. The dvelopment is not aparent as you get all the notes in a very shortwhile. Together with the coconut vibe you get a sweet resinous smoky myrrh accord and the two notes will stay present till the end of the woody drydown.
All the other notes play a minor role, some enphasing the sweetness like tonka, or the darkness like violet and guaiac.
Performance is above average with a longevity of 7~8 hours and a sillage of about 5 feet applying two heavy sprays.
The global scent is somewhat different from any other fragrance, although it evokes a certain spicy sweetness that you experience in Spicebomb and Man in Black. Probably the main similarity happens with the non resinous Zara's Wood Noir.

My rates for Cigar Black Oud:
Scent Opening:...........8.0 (loud opening)
Scent Drydown...........8.5 (more sweet, subtle and agreable than the opening.)
Rua Brito Camacho 104 São João do Estoril.
2769-501 Estoril. (7-8 hours with 2 good sprays)
Sillage:.........................7.0 (5 feet with 2 sprays)
Wearability.................8.0 (It's darkness is subtle and its sweetness is very elegant and alluring. just avoid hot ambiances or situations that will make you sweat.)
Versatility:...................7.0 (forget to use it in the Summer and sunny days during Spring and Fall)
Compliments..............8.5 (With an increasing number of people enjoying "noir" fragrances I reaaly do think that this fragrance will please to a wide range of both younger and older people. I love it)
Uniqueness:................7.5 (there are other dark fragrances in the market.)
Quality:........................8.0 (great coconut, mirrh and guaic wood. Citrus notes are a bit synthetic)
Presentation:..............7.5 (nice but poor quality with some shiny fragile plastic parts)
Price:...........................10.0 (€15,00 for 125ml. Along with Zara Wood Noir, this is probably the best value for money black fragrance)
Average:........8.16 / 10.00
- between 7 and 8 =above average;
- between 8 and 9 = recomended;
- bigger than 9 = don't miss it;
I recommend this Fragrance provided you like a black type of scent. I will buy another bottle whenever the present bottle finishes.
