This fragrance contains the following notes: vanilla from different countries (Uganda, Tahiti, Madagascar), mimosa, mandarin, and cedar.
Yves Rocher describes the fragrance as “between sensuality and freshness”, and “between transparency and depth”.
OK, so what’s the fragrance like? I think Vanille Noire is rather unspectacular. It’s not a bad fragrance, but it’s just so unremarkable.
The actual scent is a mix of vanilla, almond and cold smoke. Vanille Noire is also rather faint. And it doesn’t last very long.
Since my husband thinks that the fragrance is nice, I will continue to wear it around the house until I finish the bottle (which will happen very soon). However, I will not repurchase the fragrance.
And if you’re interested, Yves Rocher’s Secrets d’Essences Vanille Noire is available as 50ml for £63. However, Yves Rocher runs half price or buy one get one free promotions frequently, so there’s no reason to pay full price! By the way… my bottle is a 30ml which was free (gift with purchase)!
