Here's what other people are saying about Sombre Negra...
I'm in love with this, but it wasn't love at first sight. On first try, it seemed a little much: notes of tar and rubber. That was last summer, and I put it away. I tried it again this fall, and it's like a whole different scent! Or maybe my November nose is just that different from my June nose. Anyway, I love it now. It goes on a little funky and takes a little longer than average to settle down, but once it does, it's patchouli with a little rose and musk. I had to fight my previous patchouli aversion (hippie college had ruined it!) but I'm glad. Patchouli can be really lovely, turns out. I get excellent longevity, moderate projection from the sample vial. I suspect this is a powerhouse when sprayed. Might be too much for the office.

This is a great charred, smoky, leather fragrance. In the same vein as Patchouli 24 and Bois d'Ascese. This is more rounded I think, with more pronounced patchouli, vetiver and leather. Very dry and not at all sweet. This is nearly identical to the Astier de Villate candle "Ayoama," I love that candle so much and was so pleasantly surprised to find a fragrance that smells like it in liquid form.

Wow - first sniffs were a huge turn-off and nauseating, but I admit it was after sniffing 5 other samples. Upon returning another day, this one got first dibs and my mind changed. "This is intriguing." When I smelled a week later with friends, we agreed it has a urine/mint to it, but we all liked that with the spice mix cutting through. I really appreciate something synthetic in it - like opening packages, maybe gum in an adhesive? The scent opens up on the flesh with complex citrus notes simultaneous with synthetics. I get a dry smoke after several minutes, not incense but distant cigarettes? Another reviewer described this as "barbershop" in a good way - I agree. Highly recommended to try. Could be a unique signature scent.

Campfire + well-worn leather jacket (not "new shoes"): that's how this starts out, but as it unwinds another layer of aromas is revealed including what, for me, is a prominent note of high quality vetiver and spice. Lots of perfumes in this genre have a tendency to shout for attention while this is more subdued (we're talking one spray here). Enormously attractive and, in my opinion, an autumnal or wintry weather fragrance. As I write this it's gray and cloudy outside, with rain expected, and Sombre Negra seems just about perfect.

It smells like a barrel of burning leaves paused to take a bath in some clean ivory soap. What a blend! I've got to get a full bottle of this juice!

This is my favorite scent of all time. If you like leather/smoke/wood you will love this - but after its been on for a while it changes a bit just like the description says. I have lots of other scents to wear - but I love this one the most.

Christ alive! This is incredible - I can't stop smelling my own hand! I couldn't put it better than the reviews below. As someone else said, on opening this smellt antiseptic. Then it turned into a whole other, beautiful beast! It reminds me of a mix between Diptyque L'eau and their John Galliano room spray/candle. It's leather, smoky, incense, sweet, saucy (British term), sultry, sexy, deep, brooding, cheeky...As below, I want to lick my own hand and would jump any guy wearing this! Phwoargh!

Just received my back-up supply. Hubby ordered it last weekend. Thank you, Lucky Scent! Still FIVE STARS.

One of the most amazing scents I've ever inhaled. I bought this after sampling and do not regret it one bit. It's dark and dirty but somehow still clean. I'm getting tons of compliments. Definitely my favorite in my tiny collection. I'm giving four and not five stars because the sample was more potent than the bottle. But still, this stuff is just (black) magick.

I wear this together with Patchouly Indonesiano. At first, this seems too strong and there's a band-aid scent element on the initial opening, but as soon as it warms up on me, I could float away on a cloud of just pure delicious smokiness...I LOVE IT!

On me, it turned into nothing but smoky incense. Definitely no shadow play.

I have spent a lifetime searching for the ultimate signature scent, and finally found it in Yosh's Sombre Negra! This is the most unique fragrance I have ever smelled or worn: dark, bold, brooding, smoky, sexy. Each note compliments the next, builds to a fiery crescendo and maintains fantastic sillage & projection without overwhelming. Very masculine, super sophisticated and über-sexy.

Two words: Man up! On a funny note, my 12 yr old daughter said this smells like sausages....but what does she know? Anyway, smoke and spice stars in this action flick that we know as sombre negra. Like Django unchained, this will either offend or will be praised. Personally, I think this is a 5 star general.

Yes, this is decidedly omnisexual, bordering on masculine, but it warms up after I've warn it for a while and is nothing but yummy after about half-an-hour. The patchouli lingers, along with the woodsiness. Not overbearing...just continues to wrap me in a velvety embrace of spice. Not girly, but very romantic.

My tastes in scents are fairly diverse. I like sexy, deep, dark, musky stuff. I like bright florals. I like foody. I like hippie-stink. Whatever. If it's well-composed, I'm probably into it. I am, however, rarely one to go for particularly masculine scents. However, this one (unisex though it may be marked, it's definitely dude-ish), rather makes me want to lick my own skin. It's got this smoky, cedar-y, leathery thing going on that would pretty much make me jump any guy who was wearing it. It's VERY hot. I think I will experiment with my sample to see if I, distinctly female person that I am, can pull this off. Oh, yes.
