    Mate, awesome channel and has already taught me a lot. I got the anthracite for christmas from the wife and I love it!

    My wife goes bananas over Noir Anthracite. It's ultra masculine. Not everyone can pull it off. Chest hair reccomended.😁

    Hi Ashton, thanks for the video. Nice to see Noir Anthracite getting some airtime again. I personally love this scent. Anthracite is coal by any other name so it is one of the most earthy notes that could be used. While it isn't an ingredient in this scent I guess it could be the combination of Ebony, Amber wood, Birch and Sichuan Pepper that create that accord and so the opening screams alpha-male but as it dries down, I completely agree that it settles a little and becomes more rounded, complex yet still super masculine and unapologetic. Can either be worn 'leather jacket' casual or pin stripe suit and tie board room smart. The narcissistic cousin of Encre Noire A L'Extreme you might say. 🤣

    It’s a pity they’ve now discontinued Noir Anthracite and Beau de jour (a limited release). If you wear Beau de jour for long enough, you’ll notice there’s an element of sensuality with some amber in the base notes, which takes it in a different direction than traditional barbershop scents.

    Thanks Ashton for the effort and the nice uploads.
    Anthracite is indeed a challenging scent. Not for everybody.
    To me it has a gentlemanly obscure vibe that I think if dressed properly in cold weather it will do the trick.

      @Zac A thank you for commenting. Indeed there is, it's just that the review was back in 2017 and from a sample.
      Althoug I can't prove this but, I believe that time helps creeds develop. And having a generous quantity does factor in as well.

    I have loved Noir Anthracite for quite some time. It really is great. The same goes for Beau de Jour. I wish it was cheaper, though 😞

    • Surround Scent
      Surround Scent 3 months ago

      Beau de jour is expensive because they use real French lavender (4 varieties) and it’s also a limited release due to the limited nature of the ingredients. They won’t be producing anymore bottles. So I ended up getting a 250 ml bottle to add to my 100 ml bottle.😌

      **Z* *A** - Fragrancenet.com claims to ship internationally, but obviously shipping costs will vary. Perfume.com makes similar claims; see their websites. Click on the "free shipping" icons for details.

      John Borges 3 months ago

      FragranceX seems to be identical to perfume.com. As to whether to go frag-x or frag-net, it really depends on whether you will exceed the free shipping threshold. ~$35 min for perfume.com; ~$59 min for fragrancenet.com

    Ash, great channel, you’re opening my eyes up to stuff I never knew existed. I am seriously feeling DS & Durga lately... have you reviewed their line, really interested in your take on them. Italian citrus is a classic, but Burning Barbershop and Via Volta.... WOW!

    • Dennis Davis
      Dennis Davis 3 months ago

      elven mckay... it is an awesome fragrance (personal opinion... of course) I find that once it mellows it sits very close to my skin but lasts 8+ hours and sometimes longer, I rarely go nose blind to it and it gets creamier as the day goes on. A+++

    • Mike Jones

      It has been reformulated. I had a 2014 bottle and the woodsy notes are toned down, now it's mostly a vanilla scent. However, sillage and longevity are still there.
