Hey there Posse! Here’s a little something I found on my searches through my sample and decant boxes. It was originally a 3ml decant but I used most of it up when it arrived, was going to buy a bottle and then promptly forgot it when a new batch of stuff arrived. You know how it goes. In the interest of thunking this decant I thought we could share the journey of Vert et Noir.
Vert et Noir by DSH Perfumes 2016
Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Black pepper, green notes, celery, cucumber, cyclamen, patchouli, freesia, jasmine, oakmoss, Himalayan cedar, melon, musk, black liquorice, sandalwood, citruses, basil, vetiver
So much greenery done beautifully. Sparkling with the crackle of black pepper, flowers and herbs. The resins are cool, clear, sheer and glassy given a lift by the sweetness of liquorice. Dawn has a way with green fragrance that can be subtle or explosive. Vert et Noir is one of the more sedate greens, a comfortable, wearable, light green that also hints at minty or eucalyptus.
Who could wear Vert et Noir? Utterly unisex, a mild mannered cloud that is quite diffuse and seems to have a lot of air between the notes. It would fit perfectly into the Hermès Jardin range, especially now that Christine Nagel has the reins. Wearable for work or play, especially good after a workout or yachting. I think it would be an excellent reminder of spring for the cold harsh winters as well as being a superb summer spritz.
