సంగ్రహ నివేదిక: అనుసరించండి-up 2005′s వైట్ ప్రేమ, బ్లాక్ లో లవ్ అత్యంత ఉత్తేజకరమైన florals కొన్ని మిళితం – ఊదా రంగు, డయాఫ్రం, మరియు పెరిగింది – ఒక surprisngly గోతిక్ సృష్టించడానికి, వెచ్చని, చెక్క floriental.
ప్రొఫెషనల్స్: అది ముందు వైట్ లో ప్రేమ వలె, there is something about Love in Black that feels decidedly different from the classic Creeds of yester-year. Though I’ve experienced other violet and iris scents that have gone either too sweet or too astringent, the balance of warm, musky basenotes leads the aroma down a decidedly unisex path. This just might be the floral for those who think they dislike florals.
కాన్స్: Difficult at the beginning but give it a few mintues to relax on the skin.
యొక్క నాకు గుర్తుచేస్తుంది: Though the theme and persona of Love in Black feels familiar, I honestly can’t say it reminds me of any other fragrance. In some ways it is a classic iris aroma like Mona di Orio’s Amyitis, yet in other ways it is all about violet, like Caron’s classic Violette Precieuse. At other times still there are reflections of Silver Mountain Water’s (also Creed) glimmering blackcurrant notes. Though each of these fragrances are points of reference for specific layers of Love in Black, the overall effect is really quite unique.
గమనికలు: “Greek wildflowers, Violet, Virginia cedar, Iris from Firenze, Clove, Tonkin musk, Violet from Grasse, Bourgogne blackcurrant, & రోజ్” from Creed press release.
డిజైనర్ యొక్క వివరణ: “With Love In Black, sixth-generation master perfumer Olivier CREED honors legendary dark-haired beauty Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, whom Mr. CREED met during the former First Lady’s European travels. Mr. మత సిద్ధాంతాలను గూర్చిన ప్రధానాంశం, with his son, Erwin, presents a fragrance that evokes the unique élan of Mrs. Onassis: her dark, mysterious eyes behind black sunglasses, her wavelets of brunette hair, her trim shape in a black sheath. To create Love In Black, Mr. CREED blended ingredients from places loved by this well-traveled woman. Even the bottle is made with black sand like that in the Greek isles where she wed Aristotle Onassis. Love In Black is released on the 40th anniversary of that wedding. A portion of proceeds from U.S. sales of Love In Black will help protect endangered animal species through the WWF, an organization of which Prince Philip of England is President Emeritus” from Creed press release.
పరిమళం బలం: నీళ్లు డి Parfum
సార్లు పరీక్షించిన: Numerous from a bottle given to me by Creed.
స్ప్రేలు యొక్క సంఖ్య ఈ సమీక్ష కోసం దరఖాస్తు: 5 to the arms, chest and neck.
అభివృద్ధి: (సరళ /సరాసరి / క్లిష్టమైన) Though not a total chameleon, Love in Black feels like the night itself, descending slowly into an indigo darkness dimly lit by glimmering reflections of a summer moon. Though the scent is dark, it also glows with musk and iris. మళ్ళీ, though the opening suggests a classic floral bouquet, the development reveals a warm, almost nutty undercurrent of oriental notes. At one point I thought I smelled sesame…
దీర్ఘాయువు: (Short /Average/దీర్ఘ శాశ్వత) 7-9 గంటల; last night I went to sniff my wrist, remarked at how amazing I smelled, and then concluded that it had to be the Love in Black I had put on over 8 hours earlier.
మేలుకుని యుండు: (ఒక చిన్న / సరాసరి / ఒక లాట్) Though a friend commented at first that my scent was “large”, the same friend complimented me only a couple of hours later by stating that I smelled “snuggly”.
ప్యాకేజింగ్: A stunning, matte, black lacquer over glass creates a bisque procelain effect on the bottle. Silver lettering and a black bow compliment the simplicity. The outer packaging is a typical Creed paper box covered with the three-feather logo in relief, but this time the box is black.

బాటమ్ లైన్: When I had heard that Love in Black (LiB) was the next new release from Creed, I had imagined that the scent would be a masculine counterpart to Love in White (LiW). When I learned that this was not the case, my olfactory imagination went towards a smokey, ambery gourmand aroma – మెట్టుకు, Creed hasn’t really ever done a gourmand scent. Knowing nothing about the notes at first sniff, I was shocked to find echoes of LiW’s floral iris tones, though sweeter and less creamy than LiW. Even more to my surprise was how the aroma changed over time on my skin, morphing from classic floral to warm, aromatic woodsy.
But the real story behind my love affair en noir is not quite as romantic…. I first smelled Love in Black on a sultry Manhattan day, the kind of afternoon where spring is happily giving way to summer’s warmth. To be less florid, I was hot and sweaty. I ripped open my box as if I was 5 years old and all the wonders of the world lay hidden within. I pulled out the bottle, popped off the cap with my thumbs, and sprayed with abandon. And you know what? I didn’t love it. లేదు, not at first. Love in Black is not suited to an 11th floor, Manhattan apartment where the air conditioning is broken. అంతేకాక, my expectations needed to dissipate and so it wasn’t until halfway through the second-wearing that I began to appreciate LiB’s masterful combination of floral and woody notes. My olfactory mind had no template for LiB and so finally it was during the third wearing while examining the development and longevity of the scent that I realized how addictive the composition truly is. I clearly remember remarking that I in fact was wrong about my first impressions…they can be both dangerous and misleading…especially when it comes to both love and scent.
What does it smell like? బాగా, it might be easier to explain what it does not smell like! This is not green and dewy, there isn’t an aquatic or airy hint, there is no foody-gourmand quality, no citrus freshness, and it is by no means a fruity-floral.
To me, LiB is a throwback to classic perfumery of the early 20th century. Had I only smelled it and not known the artist behind the aroma, I would have imagined this to be a creation from a house such as classic Molinard or early Patou. అవును, LiB makes me think of an evening party from the roaring twenties. And this is one of the wonders of scent: I’m in London, smoking a pipe of musky-sweet tobacco, my newly-shaved skin braced by an after-shave of violets, and my shoulders covered in black velvet smoking jacket; a single red rose rests in my lapel as I sit in front of a crackling, cedarwood fire. LiB is a thick, deep aroma that has no problem asserting its presence from the very first spray. It is highly androgynous, a little bit sweet and the cedar, డయాఫ్రం, musk and clove create a surprisingly rich, dark basenote accord. The flower is almost entirely a gothic violet complete with leaf, root and earth. As the unlikely pieces come together, the luxurious drydown is where the fragrance most shines as a complete composition.
More often than not, “మహిళలకు” currently translates to sweet, bright, and lacking any “Grrrrr” (think of a tiger growl). Creed Love in Black is so grrrrr.
Gentleman! Listen up! For those of you who have enjoyed fragrances like Iquitos, Richard James, Insense, or Homme de Rosine, or female-ascribed fragrances like Kingdom, Jicky, or Bandit, ignore those two little words on the box and experience yet another stunner from Creed.
