Eau Noire Sublime Helichrysum
If you've ever smelled Immortelle you'll know what a beautiful smell it is: sweet, rich and roasted like fenugreek. Eau Noire is basically Helichrysum opposed with lavenders - possibly oil and absolute - and there are herbs, licorice and violets,...

Dangerously in Love - Kilian
