As seen in Harper's Bazaar magazine (November 2009 issue, p158). A distinctive and elegantly noble fragrance for men and women, Cologne Noire creates an aura of well-being and vitality. Fresh spices like ginger, cardamom and pepper are blended with bracing citrus notes of bergamot, bitter orange and mandarin, putting a new twist on this one-of-a-kind cologne story. The base finishes with soft, comfortable woody notes. Van Cleef & Arpels, the world-renowned Paris jeweler, pays tribute to nature with a range of magnificent fragrant compositions inspired by its LesJardins ("The Gardens") jewelry range. Created with the finest raw materials in the great tradition of French luxury perfumery, Van Cleef & Arpels debuts the Collection Extraordinaire with six scents, each given a formulation number by the master perfumer and presented in a hallmarked and embossed presentation gift box.
