An iconic black bottle, showcasing dark, woody vetiver, the most sophisticated masculine note. Encre Noire, a modern classic by Lalique, was launched in 2006. The nose behind this fragrance is Nathalie Lorson.
Very masculine in my opinion and long lasting. It’s very artistic. The vetiver smell is very pure. Although it is an eau de toilette it does last longer than most of the other eau de toilettes. Nathalie Lorson has managed to take the sharpness out of vetiver beautifully in this fragrance with cypress and cashmere wood while the earthiness is intact.
ENCRE NOIRE incorporates Lalique’s distinctive aesthetic codes, combining luxurious materials and the technical prowess of their master glassmakers. The bottle was inspired by the ‘Biches’ inkwell designed by René Lalique in 1913.
Encre Noire is a fragrance created in praise of wood. Its fresh and woody top notes come from the naturally aromatic cypress. Its stimulating core combines mysterious notes of vetiver, Bourbon and Haitian vetiver with the warm and enveloping notes of cashmere wood and musk.
