Since I couldn't fit the following into a 140 character statement, it will now be a review :)
(I already did a review on parfumo.de, this is the english version)
I like vanilla, I like iris, I like woody notes.
Probably Black Tie is the perfect blend of these for me, maybe the other notes play a role here too, I can't tell.
Because I can't smell out any individual notes here, I just perceive the overall result:
Present, but not obtrusive.
Sweet, but not sticky - a dry sweetness that is very attractive.
Powdery, but not dry as dust.
Just a perfect composition for me, great fragrance.
