Licorice berries or berry licorice?
My overall impression is spicy-woody with a few splashes of fruit at the beginning. When asked about the wood - and here I'm right there with Meggi - I would immediately say licorice. I've never seen or tasted black raspberries before and so I can only assume they are involved, possibly in tandem with the pale iris and the oud, which for me contributes a delicate touch of smoke and spice. I have in another fragrance, iris root also once interpreted as licorice.

Apart from the fact that from now on FN turns, as it is, more and more in the direction of skin, not much happens with me, as far as the fragrance development is concerned. After about 6 hours, the licorice impression loses itself and then remains generally at spicy-woody.

This morning, oh it's almost noon now, I still perceive FN quite well on my wrists, and it shows that the berries from the top note are still/reasserting themselves. The overall impression from yesterday has now turned into a dark berry spicy scent. I'm not a little amazed at this longevity. Yesterday, in the late afternoon, I had re-sprayed, because I hardly smelled anything and now a record is apparently attempted here.

Conclusion: I like "Frambois Noir" well. I like berries and licorice. An eager flare does not set itself, but on the wish list he comes already

"Man paint...!"
What's up? It starts with a little fruit on plenty... licorice? A lot of it, I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet. I had it in comparable clarity with Guerlain's tongue twister "Black Perfecto by La petite Robe noire". Only here we are not talking about a mixture of salt and soft liquorice, but we are limiting ourselves to the latter, specifically: Haribo liquorice snails and cohorts.

Inevitably, a thought also suggests itself to the pure liquorice "Cicatrices" from LM Parfums. However, this one is a completely different caliber in this respect, but it does offer a hot trace to the emergence of the liquorice idea with one of the ingredients listed there. Later, first back to Shay & Blue.

Only slowly does a woody core peel out. Almost two hours pass before the black snack is gradually lost in the dark wood. With the knowledge of the progress, the liquorice association can be seen through more quickly in the second test. This explains why the dear J. (a reliable liquorice detector due to her deep dislike of it) does not notice anything like this, not even on demand. Which of course doesn't change the fact that it smells like liquorice today. Basta.

The fruit, so far hardly more than a swab, penetrates more strongly in the course. I immediately believe the message 'black raspberry'. I didn't know there were raspberries in dark. My daughter loves raspberries, I will look for such a plant (and let her try the scent!).

Apropos "daughter" and "dark": Suddenly I remember an experience with her; she was very small, at the beginning of the language acquisition (What was that quiet at home, today she loosely delivers three quarters of the family speech contributions!). Must have been on a trip to the big city. We were sitting in the train when a deeply dark-skinned man got in. She got big eyes and said impressed: "Man paint...!" She thought the gentleman had painted his face. By the way; again back to the fragrance.

Around midday, it is increasingly dark woody in kernel with a good blob now of jam instead of pure fruit. Anyway, it's not too sweet. The result as a whole is exciting anyway: we are offered, to put it pointedly, a pleasant variation of the Rose-Oud theme. Beautiful! The danger of fruit candy is effectively countered by means of a resin base. Dark and elegant, the dwindling fruit flutters around a protagonist who is more noble-wooded than oudigen. Iris may help with the ventilation, I can't smell it on my own.

And now we're finally on the hot trail. At the latest in the afternoon I think more and more vehemently of a kind of mild myrrh. In the second test, this mark is even much earlier present and possibly decodes the liquorice: myrrh and wood; it is probably no coincidence that myrrh is reportedly an important component of said "cicatrices". And last but not least, I sense a hint of (patchouli) cocoa. So of course also dark, which question!

Conclusion: I am pleasantly surprised. I had feared a penetrating little fruit and got a tastefully mixed wood-resin-dark fruit representative with an original prelude, which doesn't show any qualitative failure phenomena to the rear.

I thank Gerdi for the rehearsal.

a sexy little black girl
I love berries very much, in every form and raspberries are my special passion.
This is probably because there was a dense, thorny raspberry hedge in my grandmother's garden at the back of the property.
It was these very ordinary little red raspberries, to pick them a lot of small, mischievous thorns had to be overcome.
Small, as I already was at that time, I got stuck on the thorns not only with the fine apron, but also with the "cockscomb" (this typical hairstyle for little girls) which was common at that time.
Apart from my red, sap-smeared mouth, not only the fine cracks and sap stains showed, but also the scratches where I had stayed.
(Since then I have suspected that Sleeping Beauty did not sleep behind roses, but perhaps behind raspberries: it would not surprise me in any case.
Many of the brave princes perhaps spoiled their stomachs on all the ripe fruit before they could overcome this hedge of thorns and left with a stomachache. Who knows!)
One of these hedges bore large yellow fruits, which could be easily collected without injury; a thornless, tasty variety; but unfortunately very often with a meaty side dish: maggots often dwelt in these sham beauties.

It is well known that I prefer fruits on plates and in bowls, instead of scented on the skin.
Only with berry scents (with the exception of strawberries) I love very much (see "Blackberry & Bay" by Jo Malone).
So I was quite curious about the bottling of "Framboise Noire", which Gerdi put into a scented letter for me.

My initial enthusiasm grew with each spraying.
Fully ripe juicy raspberries surround me with mysterious blackness from the very first encounter.
They dominate this fragrance in such a way that the other berry varieties only form a staffage for the sake of completeness.
The iris, which I always find a bit dampening (just imagine: pale sword-tiris in front of black berries - that sounds almost a bit scary!) and a slightly animalistic oud note calm this deep dark and yet so fruity freshness pleasantly.
The generous musk embrace adds a certain softness to this fascinating fragrance composition, which is very good for it.
When I think of "black woods", I always immediately think of ebony; I wonder if this gives off the fairytale magic that this fragrance exudes?
I don't know.
All I know is that I can follow the great scent over several hours without getting enough of it.
This deep blackness of the fragrance surrounds me with protection; the secret of this creation is never completely revealed.
It will always remain in the dark - embedded in thorny black raspberries!
For me, "Framboise Noire" is a fairytale fragrance that tells a magical story.

Oooh this is smoldering!
But you literally need to have a sweet tooth to wear it. :) On my skin, this fragrance fills the room with only two sprays and lasts around 12 hours. I get sticky sweet raspberries cooked in dark berry compote in a cedarwood pot. By no means is this concoction juicy or fresh. Fruity, syrupy, and woody with a hint of musk - I get no iris or oud. It’s fairly linear and consistently fruity/woody/musky all throughout its lifespan. It distantly reminds me of EU Apparition. It’s just so dark, sexy, and fun. This is absolutely divine to me!

Berries, iris and oud: intensely sweet and syrupy with a dark quality to it, like dipping black liquorice candy into a jar of marmalade.
