Kashnoir is a story about seduction, the seductive power of an innocent white blossom with an indolic heart which can induce a psychedelic olfactory trip with just a single sniff.

Kashnoir comes out of the bottle bright and vibrant, a big splash of fresh lemon mixed with aromatic lavender and sweet orange blossom. This feels exciting but also pure and innocent, but it soon begins to change as the lavender darkens and a green herbal coriander note adds some rough edges. Orange blossom begins its seduction, opening up in the heart with a plush velvety sweetness layered with the resinous dark beauty of red rose. It is a passionate accord, wrapped in an invisible veil of musky indoles that slows down thinking and gives free rein to the imagination. The base is a deliciously sultry mix of the orange blossom with patchouli, benzoin, milky-almond heliotrope and dark vanilla. Kashnoir is now in carnal territory.

Citrusy, herbal, powdery, sensual from white flower indoles, rich with balsamic notes and vanilla, with lovely sillage and great longevity, Cécile Zarokian’s Kashnoir has the voluptuous power of Guerlain’s Shalimar, but with the addition of a very modern sensibility.

More vibrant, less opulent, softer than Guerlain’s classic, Kashnoir is exactly as described on the  Laboratorio Olfattivo website: “More than a fragrance, Kashnoir is a softly lethal drug, that obscures reason and stuns the senses.”

I’m addicted, in the best possible way.
