Preface:
Noir Absolu combines extroversion with mysterious depth and has convinced me after initial scepticism totally.

Description of fragrance:
The fragrance starts with an incredibly intense and heavy/creamy sweetness which is not easy to classify, as it is not just synthetic as it is often the case nowadays.

A look at the listed scents and a longer analysis of the perfume, let me guess this scent of a mixture of the listed cinnamon and the incense oil, because incense is also rather sweet/woody than really smoky.
So I have a slightly different opinion and find that incense is very present and gives the perfume a lot of depth and sensuality.

Even at the beginning you still have a little bit of the "clock original" Uomo DNA in it, but the longer you wear it, the less you compare the scents with each other.

After a while the sweetness decreases slightly and the sandalwood becomes more present, the two notes combine very well and flow into each other. So although this fragrance is intense and present, it is very rounded, which enhances the creaminess and makes it very balanced.

I notice less of the listed pepper, because I assign this light background spice to the Zimmt.

Conclusion:
The fragrance is in my opinion extremely successful and it is special in its own way, but it will not appeal to everyone and especially not to people who have a phobia against sweetness.^^

As for age, I see this fragrance in a young adult as well as in an older man
Concerning occasions and wearability it is placed where Valentino Uomo Untense is standing, this one is a little less flexible due to its creaminess and you have to be more careful not to apply too much thickness (on the occasion and the application itself).

Woods, Cinnamon and Incense + Powder!
I received the original Valentino Uomo for a Christmas gift and never really thought about the house again until now. Noir Absolu is definitely more powdery, unique and dark and I love it. It's sweeter than the original. Darker than the original and I can't stop smelling my arms when I spray it on myself. The woods, cinnamon, and incense are awesome. There isn't a lot of smoke, just a touch. Hardly noticeable, and that's okay as this is a well blended and classy fragrance. Not a USA Mall fragrance. This was a blind-buy for me, and I know my fragrances, so no biggy. I also like unique fragrances. If you're just beginning your fragrance journey you may want to get a sample before you buy. 9 / 10 for me.

Warming dark wood
Interestingly enough, at first it smells completely like Jack Daniel's. After a good 10-15 minutes it gets the dark, sweet, resinous wood scent, which simply overwhelms me. Uomo Noir Absolu keeps the typical Valentino Uomo DNA and still manages to turn the elegant, powdery sweetness into something dark. It is not a typical fragrance that you can perceive at every corner and it convinces above all by its uniqueness. But not only the uniqueness attracts Uomo Noir Absolu to the good, but the durability and sillage are both absolute animals in their field. And these characteristics make it perfect for cold autumn and winter days. Even if it is not suitable for every nose, I recommend this perfume and in my eyes it is an absolute must for every woody-sweet fan.

The darkest and most mysterious Uomo
Uomo Noir Absolu manages to maintain the DNA Uomo despite reducing the sweetness and creaminess of the previous ones with an extra contribution of dry and woody wood, but yes, it retains the note of iris, which, although not declared, feels its aura powdered everywhere.

It gives the impression of being a linear aroma, but in my case, I feel two distinct stages. Onset is cinnamon with pepper with a sense of liquor, like an old liquor macerated, which has lost all traces of alcohol and can only feel. I like this part, it's a very spicy cinnamon, with that liqueur sensation that I have described before, and with the typical powdery touch of this series. Then, that feeling of dusty iris follows, but here already sandalwood and incense make an appearance with a slight rattle of the initial scent. From here, we will have the aroma of most of the perfume, a sandalwood powder with smoky incense and light touches of pepper and cinnamon quite thin. I particularly liked it a lot, it has characteristics that are common with the rest of the Uomo collection perfumes, like that powdered air, but it is also true that it has enough differences to find a space in the collection. Its aroma is drier and less sweet than that of its predecessors, but undoubtedly maintains that touch of elegance characteristic in this series.

The performance of the perfume is within what is usually normal in this series, about 8 or 9 hours in skin with a moderate wake, something more intense at the beginning of the application, but after a while it settles and stays that way, until dying skin ras.

A very elegant night perfume, for cold and temperate times.

For me it is the darkest and most mysterious perfume of the collection, a good option to add, the only downside is that it is not so easy to find and its price, which is not according to the rest of the collection, too high in my humble opinion.

Sorry for my bad english.

Terrible sweet liquorish chemical mess fragrance, maybe, and just maybe for clubbing when you are in your early 20s, but really, it's bad.

Different off the other Uomo scents, more dark and intense. Very similar to Black Orchid. Fragrance perfect for the groom at a wedding.

TF darkness in a Valentino scent. This one grabs the best of Dark Orchid (less floral) and Noir Extreme (less sweet). Signature scent stuff.

Spices, incense & wood; It's not a flanker as it's way different from any scent of the Uomo family. I love them all but I prefer this one.
