Here's what other people are saying about Noir Exquis...
Darn if this doesn't remind me of some of Hilde Soliani Profumi's line. Simple and easy gourmand. Reminds me of the candied chestnuts during Christmas time, so soft and syrupy with a latte perhaps. A bit of coffee shop holiday vibe. There is the slightest hint of some type of spice - a little bit of allspice or mace perhaps? A bit of deep amber-like qualities, all in all very calming and a bit of a treat.

A fully realized espresso (not coffee) experience with cozy nooks and crannies, just the way one likes one’s favorite coffeeshop. Other reviews are correct in noting that the orange blossom water note is gone almost instantly, but combined with a toasty vanilla it’s enough to establish the idea of baked goods in the vicinity of a series of sturdy dark-wood notes that evoke the bracing bitterness of a really well-pulled shot. Tonka and (again) the vanilla see the theme through a very friendly drydown. A nice fall/winter choice -- as the saying goes, I want to go to there.

My favorite fragrance of perfume in life right now is Mure et Musc- it's and adventure that challenges you but still smells pleasant. This is just a 'no' for me. Simply its vanilla and animalic , sweaty men's perfume. There is no challenge here or pleasant surprise that one might except from the l'Artisan Parfumeurs. I found the same thing with Mirabliis.

I am trying a sample of this today and liked it so I logged on to check out more about it. I have to say, after I read "opens with a succulent combination of sweet orange", I had to read the list of ingredients. On me I get no orange what so ever. That being said, it is still very nice. This is a warmer fall/winter scent, but something I would definitely wear. I get the "gourmand' and it is a comfort scent. I am giving it 5 stars right off the bat but I don't know the longevity of it yet.

Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille and L'Artisan Jour de Fete dry down into Dior Addict. I never smelled Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille or Thierry Mugler Angel. The sillage was surprisingly longer for a L'Artisan.

I've been getting so many compliments on this little number! I agree that it's in the same family as Amour Nocturne, which I also love, but Noir Exquis is a bit softer and easier to wear. I find this to be a multi-faceted scent which starts with a delicate, sweet, powdery opening. (Very light powder--this is not a powder monster.) The drydown smells like it has oud, and while I generally don't like oud I like it here. Worth a sniff if you like gourmands.

I really wanted to love this and had great hopes for it...but meh. It's very like Guerlain Spiriteuse Double Vanille - a super-sweet vanilla that dries down spicy. I do pick up something slightly nutty, but I was hoping for a more complex fragrance.

This appears to be another in the long line of spicy/woodsy masculine gourmands. Nothing wrong, or out of place here, just nothing new brought to the table. One unique quality is it’s persistent sharpness. Not at all piercing or unavoidable, but there nonetheless, and I find this appealing. Thumb neutral on this one.

Noir Exquis is a lovely scent. It reminds me of Amour Nocturne, but this is sweeter and more gourmand with a yummy chestnut note. The Amour Nocturne is creamy caramel woodsy with a unique gunpowder note. Both of these scents are so close in smell but still so far apart. I love them both. I bought a full bottle of this one on a blind buy and am so glad I did! I found my new fall/winter scent. Just lovely.
