Fragrance Of The Month: Guy Laroche, Drakkar Noir EDT

This month? We try out Guy Laroche, Drakkar Noir EDT

It’s baaack! Parisian brand, Guy Laroche’s 1980s hit scent Drakkar Noir is having a big comeback and we aren’t mad about it.

Bold and aromatic, this fougère eau has a naturally seductive quality that is as enticing as it is masculine. The fragrance opens with herbaceous basil, rosemary and lavender mixed into fresh citrus notes of lemon and mandarin orange before being absorbed into a bed of spicy coriander and tart juniper. Warm and woodsy notes of oakmoss and cedar mix-mastered with heady patchouli, sharp vetiver and pine needles, and an intimate hit of balsam complete the scent, giving it a smooth and elegant appeal. The overall effect is dramatic, sexy and oh-so worth repeating…and reminiscing over.

And let’s not overlook the bottle. Sleek and smooth in a classic matte-black, the oval-shaped flacon feels weighty, meaningful, like it’s marking its place wherever it stands. Rightly so, too. After all, you don’t win the Oscar in fragrance twice with a FiFi Award for Best Men’s Fragrance in 1985 and the Best-selling Men’s Prestige Scent in 1991, and then, become a household name for 40 years and counting.
