About this deal

However, now my perception changed because, despite being the most lovely fresh vanilla, the powderiness is too prominent for me now. Within just a few minutes the initial strength of the citrus dissipates, and it dries down to the most beautiful powdery, creamy, light vanilla musk scent. I normally don't love citrus or florals (although I do like purple florals more than others), but everything is truly so well blended and cohesive!

I've worn both within the last 24 hours; although Junoon Noir is a pleasant, easy wearing fragrance, it lacks depth, longevity, and silage. Edit 10/11/23: tried this again today and it smells like old stinky leather on me—no vanilla, no powder, maybe a touch of fruitiness but it’s buried under the saddle smell. I’d say this fragrance is more about the final composition and less of a showcase for one or two notes.Out of the gate Dama Bianca had superior performance, but as time goes on, Junoon Noir is developing a beast mode performance. The reason is that there were countless occasions I would be going to do something social (ie family gathering), look at all my fragrances and just want something inoffensive yet sweet and feminine. It could be in the same orbit as Taylor swift but really would be different side by side, Taylor is stronger and louder.

On me, I do not get much jasmine at all, however it is extremely violet forward, and almost smells like French lilac - which I was pleasantly surprised by as the presentation of purple flowers are very different, and quite unpredictable from white florals. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). I’ve never smelt Dama Bianca, but reading it’s notes, and smelling Junoon Noir, I have a feeling that this might be the best dupe.Some part of it even reminds me of hints of floral honey, almost honeysuckle but richer, creamier, and tarter. The creamy vanilla sandalwood drydown is very comforting and enduring on the skin, rather like the vanilla in Lira.

The floral blend in here ends up sorta becoming its own thing, as I can’t really pick out a specific flower that this smells like. I don't think people who love trendy, heavy, fruity, extremely sweet, and/or gourmand fragrances would like this much. Notably, its longevity is impressive, lingering on the skin for extended periods, ensuring its presence is felt throughout the day. The fruit notes are hardly coming across as top notes and are more-so blended with the middle-heart notes. It reminds me of a quiet evening after a heavy and powdery snow, the lights of the houses are warm and bright, but you're the only one out, making the first footprints.And although it's not gourmand it's *perhaps* a little bit lemon sherbert; there's a dizziness and vivacity going on. Sadly I cannot comment on its similarity to Delina cos I am a cheapass who would never pay *that* for a perfume, but I think Junoon Noir is super likable for anyone with a girly,/feminine side. Within minutes, I have everything else this has to offer - creamy orris, powdery violets, sweet vanilla, and musk. If you like Lira by Xerjoff but are after something a little less winter appropriate, this could be for you. I would say that, on my skin, Junoon noir is creamier and definitely more powdery (I know that it is a personal thing, but I don't really like perfumes with a prominent powdery note because they are nauseating to me, and Junoon noir walks this thin line, where the powdery note is prominent enough to make me nauseous, whereas the powdery note in Dama Bianca is very faint and light, and it doesn't stand out from the overall composition as much as in Junoon noir).

It’s unrefined, harsh, not smooth and soft like Dama Bianca, it’s hard to explain because they kind of smell the same but they are so different, like a cheap version of Dama Bianca, which it is, and you can tell.On first spray I got powder and a hint of citrus and violets and then later the vanilla note emerged. Immerse yourself in a pleasant madness, attracting by a tempting secret, together with Al Haramain's Junoon Noir perfume! It does not create a scent bubble on me, but you can definitely catch many frequent beautiful whiffs of it on yourself. I will wear this as an at-home scent as I did not find it to be very projecting, rather intimate infact. Side by side they are very similar but Junoon Noir is a bit sweeter and has much better projection and longevity on my skin (woohoo!
