The drydown has an identity of its own, oily and remotely sweet, reminicent of toasted coconut. The aroma also brings to mind a night time walk on a tropical beach underneath the moon. Not as unassuming as I thought, since I get wafts of it as I move around.

It has a slightly creamier and muskier quality to it now, although it still doesn't remind me of anything "darkly mysterious." It is a more mature, not-as-sweet version of the Gwen Stefani "G" fragrance, whose sweetness I do miss from time to time.

So take a break from the bar scene, crowded clubs, expensive dating services, and embarrassing blind dates.

If I could do prom night over again, I would've chosen this as my scent instead. I bought this when this first came out, and it sat.sat.continues to sit. But I will try layering this one and see what happens.

This never smelled like anything much to me, I never could pick up any of the specific notes (except perhaps the pepper note, and that was really not much at all). If this still does not trip my trigger, this one might go into the donation pile. But I can't really say that I "dislike" this, because to me, this smells like..pretty much..nothing.

Such a beautiful perfume, though I cannot smell the coconut for the life of me.

Bit of a bomb on me, so I wait for nights where it is very cold to wear this.

As it settles, this blends seamlessly with the base to create an aroma so sensual it may catch you off guard. I had a lot of fluctuations to write, because my opinion about this perfume is changing. I was wearing CN yesterday in a dinner and 3 persons in this evening asked me what I had impressive... I woke up this morning, and I could feel it still on me...husband and my son loovveeee this scent! Ordered and received an EDP sample, after years of curiosity about this.

It is like a progression of daytime to sensual beginnings after sundown. Crystal Noir should be in a special category of fragrances that require a warning label, because it can easily progress from being a sensory delight, to inducing an undeniable sexual vibe. Sometimes I am madly in love with it, sometimes I suffocate. At first try it hardly smelled of anything "deep" or "noir." A fresh, spicy coconut; fit for a luxury hotel soap or after-shower splash. Properly trying this throughout the day though, and it's a sneaky devil that has clung to my skin.

Also, sometimes over time you become used to the perfume, so every month spray the tiniest amount you can (since the nose is overwhelmed by some note or mix of notes, small amounts make sense) and see if the anosmia is lifting.

Anosmia is common, directed to note (s) the nose of a person has difficulties and varies from person to person.

I'd wear this in the summertime for a day out on the town, to take advantage of that freshness.
