Black Friday is a great time to try a niche perfume at a fraction of the high prices in department stores. We recommend the racy rose and oud perfume Montale Black Aoud for him and for her that has such longevity and projection, spritz it once and you will still smell its sexy sillage on Cyber Monday.
YSL Black Opium is a sumptuous scent without the heaviness of most Orientals. The sweetness of orange blossom, dark chocolate and jasmine blend with spices, and vanilla bean and patchouli cross into gourmand territory making it perfect for the Holiday Season.
Looking for a fragrance that you can wear now and through New Year’s Eve? We recommend Jasmine Noir by Bulgari. Warm woody, with a slightly husky musk heightening the titular jasmine, the lilt of lily lifts this scent at the top. Especially lovely at night as the temperature drops to below zero. This full-bodied perfume lingers long after you leave the room and is a great Black Friday perfume for women who love feminine but sensuous florals.
Want to smell like a Boss? Remind them that your contributions helped the department stay in the “Black” with Polo Black, starts out with a surprising kick of mango. It’s a commanding scent with a hint of herbal sage, a pinch of pepper and lavender that dries down to an patchouli and sandalwood base.
Pierre Wargnye, the perfumer of Guy Laroche Drakkar Noir broke new ground in 1982 with a memorable men’s cologne that is now considered a classic. It’s simultaneously fresh and dark. Opening with pine and cedar, the drydown is ambery with a hint of spice. A little leather makes it better.
Every woman needs a little black dress for the holidays. Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire Black Perfecto, which translated from French means “The Perfect Little Black Dress”, is the perfume you will reach for day and night. This tres chic luxe fruity floral is a bit of a bad girl. It starts with a sensational cherry and delectable almond top and is heightened with a lash of licorice, a leather whip and smoky tea. You’ll skip dessert and so will your admirers.
