This fragrance isn't for everyone. Right off the bat the sichuan pepper slaps u in the face and leaves a welt for a while. After that it lessens a bit to a more tolerable leathery scent. It does have very good longevity which is a Tom Ford staple. I gef a good 8hrs or more and i got super lucky. A guy on ebay was selling an almost brand new full bottle for $40!! Why can't i find a vintage bottle of Kouros for that price?? Lol. Anyway tbis has sadly been discontinued so your gonna have to surf the internet for a bottle but u shouldn't have any trouble.

Unfortunately discontinued...
Very surprising scent that this Noir Anthracite...
Somewhat confusing at first for the uninitiated, i thought this perfume would fall into my ranking of the most horrible scents...
In top notes, i seemed to breathe cold cigarette ashes in an ashtray...
Sichuan pepper has a lot to do with it, it's full-bodied, it comes to your nose like a strong mustard.
Then the spices make their appearances, and that's where it gets interesting.
The fragrance arises, is released, becomes a little "softer", to finally release all its olfactory potential, to finish with woody notes, leather and patchouli... A true delight.
So don't be fooled by this spicy start, because the rest is worth the effort.
It is not a perfume for young beginners, but for men of at least 30 years old, or more...
My advice, test it before buying it blindly.
After reflection and several tests, this perfume has the art of disturbing, with its spicy, incisive, original, seductive, elaborate and very original side, to have its place in my top 10.
Very good and long lasting on the skin, with an above average wake without going overboard.
Bottle is very chic, sober with petroleum reflections, and evokes the mystery of its contents.
Conclusion: To perfume yourself with this Noir Anthracite fragrance means to embark on troubled waters...
Gentlemen, you have therefore been warned.
My rating: 9/10

Right in the face........
A very special fragrance I have discovered for me.

Heaven is the hard and strange.......!

This TF does not want to please. He wants to stand out and polarize. Almost aggressive is the appearance of this fragrance. The wearer does not hide, he goes to the frontal attack. An ideal fragrance for a meeting. He marks security and self-confidence and acts intimidating.

I also call it my "Fuck you A......" Scent.
I think on a date, this gray, peppery wall would not make a good impression. For this he is just too polarizing and too blatant.

Definitely a lone wolf and outlaw scent. Hard and direct

A fragrance for Jay Gatsby ? Dark, mysterious and unique...
I'm already longer on the search for a fragrance that Jay Gatsby would wear Jay Gatsby known from Fitzgeralds "The Great Gatsby" is mysterious, everyone knows him but hardly anyone has really met him, sometimes he seems like a king with his castle, then again like a rumor a fog you can not grasp ... He organizes big parties and then blends into the crowd like a shadow. He radiates power and success, but inside he's delicate and fragile... plagued by depression, by dreams that never come true despite, or perhaps because of, all his money. I think Jay Gatsby would wear noir anthracite and it would suit him...

But now to the fragrance .
Noir Anthracite can not be compared with the other Noir fragrances, generally the Noir fragrances are all relatively different.
One can, at least I find that, anthracite but also generally difficult to compare with any other fragrance. There is no other fragrance that smells like this and that makes it so unique.
Noir Anthracite smells like wet concrete with floral notes and some ash from a burnt campfire. This fragrance is relatively difficult to describe ...
I'll get out now something to describe it to you better.
Do you know world of Warcraft ? If so then try to remember Azshara, this bay in the north-east of Kalimdor directly under Winterspring and above Durotar ...
Do you have the picture in your head ? If not or if you don't know world of warcraft in general i'll try to describe it...
In Azshara there is a beach and in the beach and lie everywhere ruins of ancient temples around, if you stand on the water you can look over to a larger temple that is something in the sea so the bay in it and is connected with a ramp / jetty with the beach. Now imagine you are in such a deserted temple and this temple is several hundred years old. It is cracked and water is coming in. It smells like wet rock... basically like a street after a rainstorm. Now there is a floral note, which I personally perceive quite well, so imagine that there is a plant growing in this temple. It winds its way through the masonry up through the broken roof and out again and this plant has blossoms which let a slight floral note flow into this temple. In the end, the smell of a campfire blows in from outside, burnt wood. Not cigarette ash but wood ash... if you have the picture in your head and can imagine these smells, then you get a good picture of Noir Anthracite. Damp streets, concrete with a floral and at the end a smoky note. I have never smelled anything like it...

To the performance.
It is a Tom Ford fragrance. The quality is usual very high and the durability is definitely ok, no beast but 5-7 hours are definitely in it. The Silage should not be ignored I myself take the scent Even after many hours around me was . The fragrance is just so different that it always stands out And difficult to disappear in the background ... expect no Aventus or Sauvage but one takes him definitely war !

What can I say in conclusion to this ?
As long as there is still to buy ... BUY IT ! Because according to my information, the no longer manufactured ... maybe he was too diverse and he could never keep up with the other Noir fragrances. I always find 50 or 100ml bottles online but that will be less in the future ... i don't understand how Oud Wood (which I personally think sucks) is hyped to death and something so brilliant is forgotten ? I just hope that Tom Ford realizes that people still buy it and resumes production ... on the other hand... Leave it alone, who wants to smell of concrete, wet road and ashes ? Don't buy it! Then remains more for me ...

Turned too soon in time travel....
I think, the conscious olfactory socialization, speak the "calibration" on preferred fragrances, happens with many in adolescence. Girls become interesting, the first intoxication, boundaries and freedoms are explored, and because of firsts, it is tried to underline the still unpolished own personality with fragrances.
... then something has probably gone wrong with me. My youth took place in the 1990s, with the many fresh, aquatic, sweetish, increasingly unisex-aligned perfumes of this decade, however, I can do almost nothing. I'm more comfortable with tart, dark green, "classic" scents - oakmoss, galbanum, patchouli, herbs; perfumes of the 1960s to 1980s with rough edges.

Tom Ford's "Noir Anthracite" does a lot right in this regard.
The fragrance starts peppery and minimally spicy, with subtle citrus sprinkles. Underneath is already clearly wonderful herb-green galbanum. Galbanum determines then also for the next few hours the further course of the fragrance, supplemented by dark floral notes and pepper remnants, a little smoky it's also. Much development is not offered until the base, a wonderful sandalwood patchouli melange.

"Noir Anthracite" is for me a clear reminiscence of classic men's fragrances of past decades. I have long puzzled why Tom Ford does not convince me 100% here. The fragrance leaves but extensively trodden sweet or fresh fragrance paths of recent years, so to speak, "back to the roots"? The solution: "Noir Anthracite" is too smooth, too well-designed. The above-mentioned classic men's fragrances - "Polo", "Bogart", "One Man Show", "Yatagan" times as examples - start with a wild potpourri, the individual fragrance notes must first pluck a few minutes until the fragrance becomes a fine experience. This sometimes cacophonous superstructure is missing from "Noir Anthracite", making it a bit boring. One knows directly from the beginning, where the olfactory journey goes.

A fine fragrance, no question. But sufficiently good for my collection? I am still undecided...

Fifty shades of grey...
No... Absolutely not! With great certainty every perfume or perfuma reading here is now inclined to think of a relevant film title. But unfortunately this is not going to happen, or should I better say thank god? That lies, as so often, in the eye of the beholder I chose this apt title because in my eyes Anthracite presents exactly these very diverse shades of grey. For quite a while now I have been accompanied by this intense and very expressive Tom Ford, so I would like to dedicate a few more lines to him, here with this comment Noir Anthracite starts off by taking distance and going on distance. Many of these grey facets and gloomy sprinklers show up in the opening phase. The precise and skilful use of Szechuan pepper and tuberose creates impressions of a cool matted veil, which lays on the skin with a certain acidity, sharpness and bitterness. As if he were to say: Here I am, and I won't go so fast anymore! Now they to how you get along with me ...
I actually mean this "getting by" thing. In my opinion Noir Anthracite has a very strong emotional cascading component. Because of this latent melancholic start I have had days where I almost regretted applying it. Because if your own emotional state is not equal to "the sun is shining out of the...", the fragrance can even support this state in a negative way.
For a long time I did not know myself whether I should call this phenomenon good or bad. But now I see it more clearly. Because the concept of the fragrance has been implemented with great consistency. This is praiseworthy and impeccable in every respect. I as the wearer must decide whether I am in the appropriate mode However, the fragrance fits perfectly to the current season, autumn. Noir Anthracite is simply predestined to be worn now, in autumn. As soon as a, let's say, certain groove with the veil of scent is established, Noir works just great. The fragrance gets its magnificence from its inherent ambivalence - its contradictoriness! Paradoxically, after a certain time, pretty much exactly when the dark precious woods take over, the whole fragrance spectrum is turned upside down. Suddenly there is a lot of warmth and security. Soft and gentle nuances take away the cold and sharp edges from the initially hard construction, which made the fragrance almost unlovable at the beginning.
Classic, elegant and perfectly staged scented woods transform the cool veil into a warming coat. The result is a cuddly companion for almost the entire day. Because it is also characterised by a certain indestructibility. Several hours of durability are no problem. Therefore, the dosage should be chosen with care, so as not to let the sillage and projection get out of hand.
In its entirety Noir Anthracite is exactly what it wants to be or should be. Surely not for everyone suitable, in his way special, but for me absolutely authentic and convincing, unapproachably cool and cuddly warm, rejectingly strange and attractively familiar...

happiness is not in doing what I want, it's in wanting to do what I do!
Thank you for reading...

Note: I don't know the movie at all... :-))

Right on the 12 with the log. "Make way, I'm the bailiff!"
Don't spill it. Make a big splash Noir Anthracite takes off directly and takes no prisoners. It's supposed to be masculine? You've come to the right place. Just a nice handful of pepper right in the face. Sneeze here and you lose. Next, please. You weren't tough enough. This is where the proverbial wheat separates from the chaff. This is where someone wants to test the boundaries of good taste. The pepper's not enough? Here, take this. The ginger adds a touch of spice. The slightest hint of citrus in the form of bergamot serves as a counterbalance.

Noir Anthracite would have brought tears to many eyes in the 80s. For several reasons.
I'd cross the street if one of those guys came up to me. The guy's looking for trouble and he's beaming it. One wrong look, five from the sleeve box. Cheek hurts. Just walk across the street when you're old.

In the Drydown whole forests are added. The beating continues. Keep the whole log on the twelve. Bud Spencer would have loved the smell

The grey wall
Well, I'm actually more at war with the scents of Tom Ford. The good man (because he is not a bad film director) has a different olfactory taste than me. Somehow I admire the guy for his diversity and still don't get warm with his water. Can happen, of course! With "Noir Anthracite" it's a little different now. Finally times a "Tom", which I would put on without hesitation, although also this EDT me not directly from the socks hut. But there's something about it that I don't have to be afraid of when I put it on ... ;-)

This roughness and grey, which smells a bit like car tyre abrasion (it should be mainly due to Patchouli and Galbanum), is usually not my thing. Of course, the pepper goes quite well with it. In this respect "Noir Anthracite" is very consistent in its statement and also absolutely authentic. IOch welcomes it when brand names and advertising promises give a hint of what a fragrance actually hides.

So here we have a grey wall. The loamy mortar is omnipresent, but does not necessarily have to spring from the big city, but can also be part of an ancient wall. Life and time have left their mark here. A citric herb grows out of the wall. A truck just passed by. It rained last night. Next door they're sawing wood.

All this can be located in this fragrance if you have enough imagination. He never gets pushy about it. Pepper and patchouli determine "Noir Anthracite", whereby I like the former very much and the latter only conditionally. But just like in real life, the right mixture and balance are important, and this is given for me here. The first Tom Ford I can trust because he has something familiar. Not super beautiful, but exciting, not an irresistible seducer, but a befitting companion.

Has anyone seen my cilia?
So...boah...what's...nä...hui... Hammer!
This is how my inner monologue turned out when I first got a taste of Tom Ford's Noir Anthracite.
I immediately had Harvey Specter from the series "Suits" in mind*. For those of you who don't know him: A highly successful, highly intelligent, arrogant, self-involved lawyer and senior partner in a New York law firm. Middle 40, stroke in women and quite handsome.
Noir Anthracite would definitely be the fragrance of his choice. Because NA has that certain something that has never been smelled before. At the beginning slightly pungent, indescribably spicy and hot. In the further course a little more gentle, but really only a little bit more gentle. Freshness (which I can't read out in the components) is added, but obediently hides behind the dominant spice, because the spice wants to make an impression and doesn't tolerate any other nuances next to it. After all, there are cases to win, to intimidate opponents and to signal olfactorically to your own client that everything is going exactly as planned, the process is won!!

This scent is not for quiet walkers, disco goers or promenade walkers, this scent is for executives, lawyers, commanders of infantry battalions and for Darth Vader himself. Where I smelled more and more Aventus in the business world a few years ago, this NA could spread in the next few years. He has what it takes to become a mass phenomenon within a certain social sphere. For youngsters looking for a compliment getter and panties-remover, the fabric here is nothing.
Who else he could stand for: the Wolf of Wall Street, Michael Douglas in almost all roles, Captain Pike, Chancellor Gowron, Billy Russo, and Agent Smith.

Chapeau in front of this splendid specimen of fragrance. So far I have not dared to wear it in the truest sense of the word. But I've set myself a date for tomorrow. I hope I don't scare anybody. My wife finds him terrible by the way - what I don't really care about in this case for the first time :-)
*Only recently started the series.

Very polarizing and screechy opening. Juicy, fresh, spicy and bitter. Drys down to a woody and subtle cedar smell. Good but not great. 3/5

One of my favorite designers. Green, incensy, non-friendly, with a marihuana background, also mineral, and dry, masculine, strong, perfect.

A dry intensely peppery opening that persists throughout and dries down to become an even drier paper and cedar mix. Austere minmalism.

Not for everyone, no noticeable sweetness and is in fact very bitter and mature. Highly recommended for serious and confident men.
