Avon has recently released a fresh fragrance for men called Christian Lacroix Noir ($28 for 2.5 oz). The launch took place right around Father's Day and is a spicier and more arresting sequel to his 2007 Rouge fragrance. Like the famous designer’s clothes and personal style, this scent was clearly created with passion and fervor.
Noir comes in (what else?) a black bottle with a rectangular cap that sits atop a sturdy chrome neck. The logo was inspired from a bull-fighting cape that Christian Lacroix received as a gift (how Hemingway!) and is made from a blend of ginger saffron, cardamom, orris, cedarwood, vetiver, and driftwood.
If you are looking to gift a special guy in your life, I highly recommend Noir. Right from the start, I found myself attracted to the dynamic aroma. It’s not too mild, not too strong, and most definitely masculine. I loved it so much that I wore it around the house for a few days before regifting it. Do you think you could ever get as excited as I am over a men's cologne?
