A true classic from Caron, Narcisse Noir pushes the dual personality of orange blossom to the extreme. Its immaculate sweetness fuses with brooding, slightly dirty seductive notes that accentuate the richness of voluptuous sandalwood. The violet notes give this creation a slight powdery vintage twist.
Immortalized by Gloria Swanson in the film Sunset Boulevard, Narcisse Noir is a contrast of light and shadow combining the purity of orange blossom with the understated beauty of sandalwood.
Originally created in 1911 by Ernest Daltrof, Narcisse Noir is a bold and poetic fragrance. The fragrance was re-released in 2018.

Since its founding in 1904 (!), Caron has been the lead example of pure genuine passion within the classic French perfume world. The founder Ernest Daltroff was one of the pioneers in perfumery. Together with his creative director and maîtresse, Félicie Wanpouille, Daltroff created legendary fragrances including Narcisse Noir (1911), N’aimez que moi (1917), Tabac Blond (1919) and Pour un Homme (1934). Since 2020, businesswoman Ariane de Rothschild and perfumer Jean Jacques determine the course of Caron. They combine their shared love for fragrance, luxury, and tradition to bring the house of Caron into the 21st century. In addition to a focus on the classics of the brand, they create contemporary perfumes of the same exceptional quality.
Floral fragrances celebrate the delicious scent of flowers, being the richest source of inspiration for perfumers. The use of flowers in perfumes have been used since antiquity; from soft delicate flowers like freesia, muguet and blossoms, to narcotic flowers like jasmine, tuberose and gardenia... Enjoy, and smell the roses!
