Fragrance Friday: narciso rodriguez for her MUSC NOIR

I love it when a new fragrance release lands on my desk and I am compelled to wear it immediately, which was definitely the case yesterday with narciso rodriguez for her MUSC NOIR. A new fragrance by celebrated Parisian perfumer Sonia Constant for Narciso Rodriguez, for her MUSC NOIR is a tribute to the “powerful mystique of a woman’s inner beauty and innate sensuality”. Inspired by the hugely successful original for her, MUSC NOIR reinterprets and explores the unabashed mystery and eloquence of the iconic scent.
narciso rodriguez’s for her fragrance collection was conceived over eighteen years ago to celebrate the power of femininity, and that vibe continues to this day. The collection continues to be inspired by women; each scent created to empower through the transformative power of musc. The introduction of the original for her saw ‘chypre musc’ added as a new chapter to the history of modern fragrance, the now-iconic scent becoming an international phenomenon and a modern classic.
Narciso Rodriguez chose a rare musc oil to be at the heart of the original for her, an ingredient not only addictive, but also surprisingly feminine and enduring in its earthy, warm powers of seduction. “To work with musc is a perfumer’s dream,” says MUSC NOIR perfumer, Sonia Constant.
The composition of for her MUSC NOIR includes a darker musc with a rich olfactory depth, both mysterious and sensual. Leathery suede accords transform the heart of musc and intensify the skin-on-skin sensuality of the fragrance, which is then emboldened with heliotrope and enhanced by white cedar and rose. A hint of luscious plum adds light and harmony for a final, feminine touch. I have read that when for her MUSC NOIR is layered with for her PURE MUSC it becomes an even more memorable statement in fragrance, so take note if you’re on the hunt for your newest signature scent.

For the first time ever, the iconic for her bottle appears in its purest form. MUSC NOIR is presented in a completely translucent bottle, revealing the mystery within. Only a delicate pink juice, echoing the original for her, adorns the signature bottle, while a black cap alludes to scent’s darker facets.
Like the scent, it is timeless, ageless, and effortlessly beautiful, and after a full day’s wear, I was even more enamoured than the moment I first sprayed it on.
