Christian Lacroix Noir Fragrance For Men Review

Oh Man: Christian Lacroix Noir

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?

I still love my dad's Blue Stratos aftershave & I'd sneakily pour it all over myself as a child! My favorite this year is Perry Ellis for Men, which, if the occasion demands, gets a shot of femininity with just a spritz of RL Blue :D

the thing I like most about men, is their cologne! I LOVE men's cologne and have even found myself staring at an unattractive guy just b/c his cologne was sooo good!

I sell AVON and have smelled this - it's nice but a little musky, but I guess that's what you want your man to smell like - the great thing about this cologne is the price! by the way lilren, if you want to test it out, find an AVON representative and they can get you a sample...

I first smelled his Rouge for Women fragrance in the Avon catalog and I thought, He should make a men's fragrance. And now that he has, I super love it. You're right, Bella, not too strong or mild, but definitely masculine. And a good price.
