• Hey friends, in today's video I'm taking a look at Issey Miyake Nuit d'Issey Noir Argent. This is a great fragrance for fall and winter and is an amazing value at it's current price. As always thanks for watching!

    I think you guys confuse strong fragrances with spicy and amoratic notes always for "cool weather scents. How does that come?

    Great review. Ash can you please review 2 old favourites of mine which I wear quite often and people always compliment me on the smell. 1. Calvin Klein: escape for men. And
    2. Diesel: fuel for life pour Homme.

    Send free samples of pulse of the night, since I can't get it in Liverpool, UK.

  • Dhruba Dasgupta

    I actually like Or Encens a considerable amount more than noir argent. However since noir Ambre is so hard to find I rate it nearly the same as or Encens since they're both high quality

  • M P

    Great review. I especially like your graphics. On Issey I really am enjoying the cooler weather scents. I have this one and Nuit d'Issey Parfum slightly ahead of Pulse...but all rock. I also like Noir Ambre and Or Encens but yet to get more than decants. I find myself liking Armani Prive Ambre Eccentrico and Rose d'Arabie better when side by side.

    I read that Issey Miyake Noir Ambre is getting re-released? There was an issue with the name or something like that, plus it wasn't widely available? Is it coming back out?

  • John Reasinger
    John Reasinger 2 months ago

    I know I am redundant here but I am SOOOO GRATEFUL for all you bring to the worldwide fragcomm! I am so far "behind" I only have Nuit d'Issey EDT and got a chance to sample the Austral Edition at a friend's dinner party (he found it in a second hand shop in ICELAND!) and dream moist dreams of the Parfum (MUST HAVE)! I saw the other Nocturnal scents Issey Miyake has been doing on Fragrantica but NOT EVEN THE NUMBER ONE perfume database has Or Encens or Noir Ambre listed?!! SO glad you are back in the (and on top of your) game! Rock on fragrant friend! JR xox PS: I too am more captivated and drawn into Miyake San's dark side. I for one am glad he brought his (always) "A" game to the dark perfumed palette

  • Michael Maniscalco
    Michael Maniscalco 2 months ago +1

    Cool looking bottle. I do collect the summer releases for the bottles . But the night or dark fragrances have become from this house , a nice and easy go to for the cooler months. I also think that fragrances like this one that "sit closer to the skin" can be a nice selection for a date night. After all you want that certain someone to move in closer ? I mean isn't that the reason in the 1st place when wearing an alluring scent . To attract and to subconsciously program that persons senses to that particular fragrance so it always reminds them of you

    Noir argent smells almost exactly like Bvlgari men in black essence with a pinch of underlying citruses. It's ok, but it would have been better with the citruses toned up more.

      There is still Versace Eros Flame. An 2018 power house EDP, 100ml for 60 bucks and it lasts and projects like crazy. Or try the classic Joop! Homme. Still radiating like a nuclear wave.

  • Roberto Robles

    I own the whole Nuit D’ Issey line including the limited edition Austral Expedition, and love all of them. You may want to try the first ones from the line(EDT and EDP) .

    • Roberto Robles
      Roberto Robles 2 months ago

      britainF1 IMO the best ones are Noir Argent and Pulse of the Night. Austral expedition is more suitable for daytime with the Nuit DNA in the dry down.

    Hey Ashton! Noticed there are some fragrances that you haven't reviewed that i would like to have your take on :
    - Amouage Beach Hut Man
    - Tom Ford Mandarino di Amalfi Aqua

    Looking for my next summer scent

    thanks a bunch!

    • Zub 41r
      Zub 41r 2 months ago

      Alexandre Boudry beach hut is better take my word on it and you’ll get way more compliments. Mandarino smells like every other summer scent with mandarin in it. You can find lots btw. Try cheaper options like Atelier. Still niche quality but you’re not paying for the TF brand name. Look at their leather bags and clothes they look like every other brands but they charge £1k why? Because of brand name. Don’t overpay for TF you’ll regret it. Rather get 2 summer fragrances for the price of 1 TF. Just my opinion mate

    I read some where that Issey miyake will re release Noir Ambre in the next 4 months, I think their was something about a shortage of a particular ingredient and a name dispute with YSL. I can't confirm this but i thinks it's true, i guess we will find out. I also read that the name will be different from Issey Miyake l’eau D’issey Noir Ambre pour homme.

      @A H oh absolutely I always buy a decant never blind buy I am not rich by any means I save for a fragrance ideally want if I like it

    • A H
      A H 2 months ago +1

      Robert...It depends on how rich you are. In my case no. I bought a decant and would recommend others do the same. It is also the type of fragrance that I don't wear often, thus another reason I would not buy a bottle.

    • Robert Duncan

  • Grey
    Grey 2 months ago

    I have not tried this yet, but I'd like to. I don't know if it's the powdery part that I don't like in Pulse of the Night, but there's definitely something. Almost a burnt sugar type of note. Not caramel, but more like walking into a house where somebody has recently spilled syrup on a hot stovetop burner. It's very harsh to my nose. I'm interested in Noir Argent, but I'll have to wait a bit to pick it up. Already blew through my fragrance budget for the month lol
