Ayala Moriel – Film Noir

Perfume: Film Noir
Perfumer: Ayala Sender
Source: Ayala Moriel
Size: 1 mL

Notes: Benzoin siamese, cocoa absolute, myrrh, patchouli

Date: 12/5/07 Weather: 38 degrees, snow

Comments: Really liking this one! Starts with dark chocolate, then becomes a beautiful, gentle myrrh/patchouli blend. Shame a full bottle is so expensive.

Date: 1/5/08 Weather: 40 degrees, partly cloudy

Comments: Starts with the dark chocolate note again. This time, the chocolate note stays with the myrrh and patchouli – much stronger and more tenacious.

Date: 10/2/08 Weather: 55 degrees, clear, evening

Comments: Dark chocolate and myrrh. The chocolate burns away leaving a myrrh / patchouli blend. The sillage on this is stronger than I anticipated. As this dries down, the myrrh dominates. A slight rosy note appears as well. Long gone by the next morning.

Date: 3/22/09 Weather: 50 degrees, sunny

Comments: Starts with a strong coffee / patchouli / myrrh blend. Somewhat astringent. Boyfriend’s comment – what’s that smell?!? I had him sniff my wrist. “Please don’t wear that again.” Dries down to a more pleasant coffee with sugar and creamer scent. I’m not allowed to wear it in the house again.
