Odd but nice
by Amanda on Mar 14, 2017
It almost comes on with a peppery mint note. To me it smells nothing like bright crystal. I didn't like the first couple minutes but once it settles, there's a very complex perfume at the bottom. Its very strong at first but settles quyiuck and lasts a good 8 hours.

I purchased this as I love Bright Crystal and also coconut so I thought why not. It was on special but there was no tester bottle around, so another blind buy. I raced to the car and opened it so eager to try it. I sprayed two pumps, and wow, two pumps was probably one to many. A really nice scent though with a lot more lasting power and projection than that of Bright Crystal. Defiantly best suited to evenings as for daytime wear or for work it may be simply too much. Now I just need a new dress and an evening out to wear this little gem.

Not a fan. This one comes off on me as a super musky powdery mess. It's strong and overwhelming.
Not What I Was Expecting

I really wanted to love this one, as I thought it could lean tropical based on the note. Unfortunately, it did not on my skin. I did, after wearing it several times, sense a bit of coconut, but mostly I got a smell of black pepper. I did get a compliment, but it's not for me.

Darn this pepper! I can smell the gardenia, adding some soft sweetness, but most of all the pepper shines through from the very beginning. Based on others' positive reviews, clearly this smells very different depending on your skin. Thank goodness for samples!

Turns really bad on my skin. Very chemically at firstnthen dries into this powdery scent. The pepper stayed the whole time and was not pleasant on me. I give it points for lasting a full 7 hours.

I love this scent. Perfect for office or date night.
I really like this fragrance

I think this smells wonderful, its almost like a soft amber scent. I wish it would last longer tho. The event goes away after about 3-4 hours

This scent, to me, is a prominent powdery smell. I feel like this would be a great perfume for a date night where you want a sort of fresh, powdery scent with flirtation. I like to place pictures with the feeling I get from a scent, and honestly I would kind of imagine Angelina Jolie in Mr & Mrs Smith to smell like this. This is the scent of their dance to Mondo Bongo - her white dress, the music, the dance, the tension. Perfect.

As a few other reviewers have commented on their body's chemistry with Crystal Noir EdT smelling like bug spray on them, I have the same exact effect. Not sure if it would change with the EdP version. A perfume that would repel rather then attract. The pepper needs to be toned down and not sure if I smell any coconut or gardenia on my body.
Unique and sophisticated
by Rachel on Jul 17, 2015
Crystal Noir is sophisticated without being too aged. It's sophisticated, creamy, yet sharp and seductive all at once. Definitely a scent for a younger, glamorous woman. Very unique due to the coconut and musk.
Considering a purchase of EDP, although that's not what I tested for this review. Silage is moderate, longevity is a good 10 hours. Well worth the purchase price.

Did not smell good on me at all. I did not get any coconut or anything like that either. Smelled more like bug spray. :\
Not meant for me
by Stacey on Mar 7, 2015
My body chemistry did not mix well with this one. Very pleasant until I put it on. Very sad it didn't work for me but my girlfriend loves it! So at least she can wear it! Glad I tried it.

Oh man this one is amazing. I sprayed it on my scarf and could smell it all day - just getting whiffs of this lovely coconutty, creamy gardenia that was kind of woody, kind of spicy. I LOVE. Need to buy some.

A very nice floral. Almost soapy but not quite there. Don't be afraid of this one, it is really delicate and feminie. So beautiful. Makes me feel like I should put on a floor length silk dress and kick up my heels while wearing pearls. Super relaxing and all woman. <3 btw....i smell no coconut. This one is a pure floral on me.
I agree with bug spray
by Nancy on Nov 13, 2014
It might be my chemistry as well- but I definitely agree with bug spray. There was also a sicky sweet note that lingered after dry down. I kept catching the scent and it bummed me out. Could not wait to wash it off.
I don't get it
by Anita on Jun 23, 2014
Maybe it is just my body chemistry but this perfume smells just like bug spray on me. After drydown it got better but the bug spray scent was still there lingering under everything else. I couldn't wash it off fast enough or well enough. This is nothing like Bright Crystal in my opinion. I am not a fan.
Cant Go Wrong With This One

This scent is sweet but not too light. It lasts fairly long and is nicely layered
Fresh, spicy coconutwood!
by Heather on Aug 6, 2013
UMmm; fresh, spicy, coconutty, woody, sensual, delicate, mysterious, dark, luminous, creamy, and distinct -- these are all words to describe Versace's Crystal Noir! LOVELY!
It opens slightly stronger than moderate. I believe the ginger and cardamom hit my nose first...this is that fresh and distinct feeling of the fragrance! The pepper is definitely noticeable and quite smooth here really! It blends well with and spices up the creamy, velvety, silky coconut, which seems to be the queen of the show! To me this scent is an exotic floral!
overall- great smell

Great smell- does not hold
