I’m a big fan of her other fragrances, so I was interested in her take on what she considers a darker shade of grey. I’m s sucker for a smoky leather scent, and this one delivers big-time. If you’re a fan of scents like what Bandit used to be then I think you’re going to be very pleased with this one. I know I could happily bathe in it. But I’ll let her explain: (From the LuckyScent)
“I launched a Limited Edition Sombre Negra exclusively with LuckyScent in 2010. That fragrance to me was dark and edgy. Very dense. I wanted to explore the idea of shadows and their mutations so I decided to create a new edition of Sombre Negra. The new M:001 Sombre Negra incorporates citrus top notes that reflect a flash of lightening – a spark of fire that quickly vanishes but casts new and elongated shadows. Rose, tonka and orris were added to give it some depth and fullness. Nutmeg and cumin give the fragrance a kind of vegetative musk and suede element to an otherwise smokey and leathery fragrance. It is still very masculine but Sombre Negra is also the ‘boyfriend fragrance’ that women are falling in love with and keeping for themselves.“
There are going to be fights over this one..
$130 for 50ML at LuckyScent (where I asked for and received a sample) and certain Barney’s stores
