Perhaps the best drugstore fragrance?
The Guess Seductive Noir is a fragrance that is actually available in almost every drugstore, whether Müller or DM. It is always priced between €15 and €25 for 30 or 75ml, making it one of the cheapest fragrances on the market.

The fragrance opens with a beautiful citrusy note, which is accompanied by a subtle rose note. In the drydown, more floral vanilla notes emerge. The fragrance becomes somewhat darker and softer here.

H/S is fine, the fragrance lasts about 7-8 hours. The fragrance is therefore an absolute P/L killer and really recommended if you are working on a budget.

Bargain alert! Velvety vanilla with a herbal touch
Oooh, I can't believe I waited so long to try this marvelous cheapie! Out of all fragrances I know, this might have the best ratio of price, scent and easy accessibility. It's in every drug store (at least in Germany), smells like a better Mon Guerlain and costs a whopping 15 € for a small bottle (less when it's on sale!).

Even though this has sage instead of lavender, it's really similar to Mon Guerlain and other lavender-vanilla blends, especially at first glance. When you know that it's supposed to be sage, you can actually identify it, it smells a bit more herbal and less clean than lavender.
The vanilla in here is creamy and warm with a good amount of depth. It turns sweeter and more gourmand towards the finale. I always liked the Mon Guerlain lind, but thought the drydown of the original EDP was a little too perfumey and could be a little warmer. In Seductive Noir, it's definitely warm enough with all that vanilla.
A subtle creamy jasmine and a powdery iris round it out. The light suede note is another really nice touch, it gives the fragrance a velvety-smooth texture.

This is just so pretty! I wouldn't really categorize it as a "Noir" scent, but it does lean a little darker than others from this family. Not dark enough to be a nighttime only scent though, this would be prefect for a cold winter day.
I don't really need another vanilla with lavender or lavender-esque sage, but I'm afraid I might not be able to resist this temptation forever. It won't drain my account after all.

Seductive indeed
Guess Seductive OG has been in my collection for 5 years now: opened, but barely touched. It's too bland and any seductiveness is hard to find. I've kept it, because not that long ago I barely had any perfume on my dresser (and I don't chuck things that fast anyway).

I'd been eyeing the Noir for years now and when I saw it offered under €20 I pulled the trigger. And... I'm pleasantly surprised. Seductive Noir has, imho, absolutely nothing of the OG DNA, besides the same bottle (in black though).

The opening is almost black liquorice like, but I know its a deep, fragrantic freshly plucked sage that says hello with very obvious moving hands. The bergamot and peony in the top are simply overpowered though peony manages to say a quick hi before the flapping hands of Sage are back again. This is no queenly wave, but a beefy blacksmith's shake. Despite the Sage bomb with a teensy peony Seductive Noir intrigues from the start.

When the heart shows up to compliment the herby, aromatic top the scent gets a bit more complexity with jasmine as greatest supporter and lily as its understudy. For me no powderiness and nothing else that reminds me of iris before the vetiver shows up.
One could say Seductive Noir has a masculine side with the prominent Sage and Vetiver, and that might have been true if the suede had pushed through most. But beside the blossoming jasmine of the heart it is vanilla that wins the race for attention.

Guess marketed the entire Seductive line to a younger woman - 20 something -, but when it comes to the Noir flanker I think age is but a number (I actually always think that, but society loves its boxes). Any person of any age could wear this fragrance and enjoy her. While I don't consider this flanker a dupe of Mon Guerlain - something I've heard say on YT - I do think that the same person wears both. Or could, if they had Guerlain money and/or no snobbery for the perfume you can find in a drugstore. I also think Alien Mugler enthusiasts might enjoy Seductive Noir when they want a lighter jasmine perfume that still has some "balls".

When it comes to sillage and longevity Seductive Noir is almost as big a disappointment as the OG. I needed to spray twice to let her shine in the beginning (NB. My skin is very dry and eats perfume, so don't think this'll be the case for everyone) and then it lasted about 4hours tops. But...I also think she'll be better suited in temperatures about 17+ degrees Celsius lower than when I wore GSN the first few times. My skin will be different then.

I'll edit a PS once I've tested a Fall & Winter wear.

Alltogether Seductive Noir is a nice find that does have a Seductive twist, making this fragrance a great date night + going out perfume. But, I also think it could very well be a daily AW scent for a woman who knows what she wants and who she is. Seductive Noir is a bit sensual, a bit sexy, but also a warm, aromatic blanket. I should've pulled that trigger ages ago!

In the quiet corner
Today with the girlfriend a stroll through the city.

I didn't feel like going to the city for a while - then I decided to visit the shopping mile in our district.
But here, too, there was an increase in popularity.

Fortunately, the Rossi branch is only a few steps away from the parking garage - and I was able to escape there quickly.

I crumbled into the fragrance corner - and took a deep breath - the mask improperly under my chin - but there was no one else around.

Rather dutifully, my eyes searched the shelves - and got caught in a charming black and gold cartouche.
Seductive noir.

I already liked the Ur Seductive - so I was curious about Noir.

Unfortunately, the height of the shelves did not match my height - but my tall girlfriend rushed over and handed me the tester from a lofty height.

Oh - what a soft sweetness embraced me!

Bergamot and peony - subtly spiced with light sage.
Lovely lilies of the valley and light jasmine delight my nose.
Vetiver looks green - cloudy surrounded by sweet vanilla and soft suede.

Was the start still reassuring - in the end Seductive Noir shows a touch of sex appeal.

It reminds me in its sensual statement of my beautiful Lacoste Elixir - but costs only a fraction of the gentle crocodile.

I guess - how did Guess do that ?

I’m a sucker for this intense vanilla and vetiver combination happening here. Anyone else catching fresh pipe tobacco vibes?

A lovely evening floral fragrance that is not overwhelming, and hits above the price tag.

This elegant and mysterious black bottle hides a very good aromatic potion, warm and sexy as the name suggests. Discrete sillage.I love it!
