I can't let you go!
Réglisse Noire is a perfect gourmand for me. Not overly foody, but immensely comfortable. Its greatest achievement though, is that it is like no other, it is very unique.
Réglisse Noire leaves me happy and satisfied, as well as craving more.
That is how perfume should be.

Te de Violetas
"Réglisse Noire is a sheer, sweet licorice. There’s a balance of air and cooling herbs contrasted with warmer spices and at this stage it reminds me of an apertif like chartreuse or pastis. As it dries down, it still keeps that airiness while adding an earthy patchouli and sheer vanilla that reminds me somewhat of aging paperback books. Really all I can say about Réglisse Noire is that it is perfect."
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – A perfect licorice. There isn’t a thing I’d change about this one. I love it.
As the afternoon wore on at the sidewalk café, Jessica told me how she made her dream possible: to become a perfumer at the very heart of Grasse. You are about to read one of the most inspiring life stories that we have had on Té de Violetas....

PRESS AND REVIEWS...
Fleur N°1: OK, all my vintage Jezebels out there (you know who you are) – listen up: You HAVE to try this one. I’m no expert by any stretch, but this scent is proof that Jessica aced her classes at the Grasse Institute. This masterpiece screams ladylike; think Parisian ladies who lunch, Jackie O and Elizabeth Taylor artfully combined and dabbed on the pulse points. I’ll admit that I feel a bit like a cross between Dame Edna and Queen Elizabeth in this one; I’m not one for ladylike floral, but it is breathtaking.
In my experience there are pretty perfumes, and there are interesting perfumes, but not a lot of pretty perfumes that are also interesting.
Fleur No 1 walks that tightrope and does it beautifully.

Someone described this as a "shy gourmand" on Fragrantica, and I have to agree. It is a gorgeous scent, and although it does smell like my favourite treats, the sheer florals seem to keep it in balance. I feel very pretty in this, and would go so far as to say that I would probably wear this when I'm feeling down - just for its effects. It dries down to a cool licorice/anise that seems to have mint without putting me off (well done; I hate mint!). I'm really really impressed by this fragrance, and as I so often do with fragrances I love - I shall stop describing it now, as I feel inadequate...
I imagine wearing white linens and walking in evening in coastal towns on south of Turkey and watching how azure Mediterranea turns to dark. I want to have Réglisse Noire on me for my next trip when I feel the sea's divine breeze streaming in my shirt.
