An unforgettable scent, a sulphurous reputation... Between radiance and the detphs of darkness, Narcisse Noir brings together two opposing notes. Fresh and sparkling, the essence of neroli reveals its most radiant facets. An overdose of Mysore sandalwood essence infuses the sillage to exalts the powerful and velvety scent of this precious wood from India. The contrast between the two is radical. Totally hypnotic.
This creation brings together several essences from the orange tree. The floral freshness of neroli. The green notes of petit grain. The honeyed and animalic nuances of orange blossom absolute.
This Black Narcissus is a marvel of sensuality, a double scent that sows trouble!
With an unforgettable scent and a reputation for sensuality, our first major success has become an icon of perfumery. Launched in 1911, it revealed one of Ernest Daltroff’s most burning obsessions: white flowers. For his whole life, our founder was fascinated by these dual flowers, both innocent and untamed, luminous and full of mystery. Narcisse Noir is a memorable confession of those traits. Fashioned like a chiaroscuro, this fragrance is an impressive ode to the two faces of orange blossom. The tiny flower becomes a grand diva! Dramatic and exuberant, it exhibits its immense beauty – but also its darkest moods. This fragrance is a masterpiece of audacity and creativity, a legend at the peak of sensuality. It’s the signature of a feline woman with an untamable spirit. An angel and a demon at the same time.
DID YOU KNOW?
As our most dramatic fragrance, this masterpiece was sure to please the stars of cinema. In 1947, it gave its name to the English film Black Narcissus, directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. Three years later, on the set of Sunset Boulevard by Billy Wilder, the Hollywood star Gloria Swanson is said to have required that all the sets be sprayed with her cherished perfume: Narcisse Noir, as you will have guessed. True or not, this rumour has only served to feed the myth, making CARON a legend.
