According to Donatella Versace, Versace Crystal Noir is a rare essence, sensual and delicate. The central note of the composition is mysterious gardenia, fresh, sensual, luminous and creamy, reproduced by ‘headspace’ technology. Amber and musk in the base make the scent dark and mysterious, very sensual and distinct. The fragrance was created by Antoine Lie in 2004.
This is a very oriental fragrance,gets lots of spicy gardenia and fleshy coconut at first, but it mellows out to reveal the soapy peony, sandalwood and cardamom. Very clean, yet sensual. Not too loud, but not quiet either! The sillage is moderate and leaves a lovely smoldering tropical trail behind you! Longevity was 7-8 hours on me, however I use the EDP which lasts substantially longer than the EDT.
