    I absolutely adore vintage Magie Noire. Just tried Coco Noir and can’t quite tell it apart from Coco Mademoiselle. So very lame.
    Follow you junkies by email.
    Thank’s for the giveaway, I’ve been very curious about this one, which sounds like a (rare) really black fume!

  2. Jaybee says:

    Magie Noire! I don’t think I can carry it off, but I want to be type of woman who can. 😀 I follow by email.

  3. Rene Groyer says:

    I follow by e mail and love Lancomes Magie Noire.Have tweeted the competition @ReneGroyer

  4. Kat McBarron says:

    Hope I get around to smelling this fragrance. I have already tested Opardu, and would like to try more from Puredistance.

    I follow this blog on BlogLovin.

    Thanks for the draw!

  5. Jackie b says:

    Black…I am not sure what this might smell like. But I have a perfume called Hokkabaz, which has embalming accord in it, smells noir to me and I love it!
    I ordered the sample set from Pure Distance and would love to try their Black.
    I follow by email.

  6. Gregory Young says:

    My favourite “black” is Tom Ford’s Noir de Noir. It’s a monster, earthy rose that was one of my three favourite evening-out scents last winter. It convinced me that I actually like rose and that it doesn’t have to be a girly floral.

    I follow via email, and via cross-postings in another FB group.

  7. Patty P. says:

    I follow by e-mail, and I like Lumiere Noire – Maison Francis Kurkdjian

  8. Cyn says:

    I follow by email and one of my favorite dark scents is Patchouli Noir. Thanks for the opportunity to try this one!

  9. Connie says:

    I follow via email, and have liked Orris Noir, quite a few from By Kilian’s L’Oeuvre Noire, and Angelique Noire by Guerlain. Also looking forward to testing Reglisse Noire by 1000 Flowers.

  10. Stacey W. says:

    I follow by email and my current favorite noir perfume is Tom Ford Noir de Noir. Thanks for this very generous draw!

  11. Jan Last says:

    I follow by email, and most people who know me realize I’m completely obsessed by 1000 Flowers Reglisse Noir, but I wear Tom Ford’s Black violet, Accord Parfait’s Chypre The Noir & Bergamote and the in your face scent of Lolita Lempika’s
    Illusions Noirs Si Lolita Eau de Minuit Lolita Lempicka for women. Hmmm, I could go on and on, my black side is awake this morning! Thanks for the chance to try another.

  12. Tora says:

    I have read all of the various reviews of this new perfume. I would love to enter to try this. I follow you by email. The only ‘black’ perfume I have is the one by Comme des Garçons. It is a super smokey sweet bar b que scent.

  13. fleurdelys says:

    I follow APJ via email. Funny, the “noir” fragrances I’ve tested really don’t seem dark to me. However, at Sniffapalooza I tried the new Valentino fragrance, Valentina, which comes in a black bottle and deserves the modifier “noir”! It has oud and spices, and I loved it.

  14. Dkchocoman says:

    I like Tom Ford’s Noir de Noir. It’s so dark and rich. I follow APJ via twitter @Dkchocoman and wordpress, same username. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I follow by email.
    Killians Back to Black is about the only fragrance that has black or Noir in its name that I wear or even like. And it doesn’t strike me as being dark at all. Guess I am more a light person.

  21. Jordan River says:

    I follow APJ through smoke! The noir per fume for me has an ‘e’ (for reasons I am not au fiat with) and is called Encre Noire.
