The opening is a floral burst, with a nice magnolia that is prominent on me; a somewhat nonspecific rose is added in soon. Not very bright, but not really dark either.
The eponymous black tea is arriving soon afterwards, a gentle slightly watered-down tea that is not very specific; this is no comparison t the sheer tea force of Bulgari black. Equally, the noir lacks any smokiness of me.
Thins become a tad edgier towards the end - by adding an oud-patchouli combination, but soon it smoothens again. The oud is not very sharp, and fortunately does not evolve into another rose-oud, as the rose is virtually gone when it approaches the base. The patchouli is of the softer variety too. There is a woodsy undertone in the background, which blends with the patchouli towards the end.
I get moderate sillage, limited projection, and five hours of longevity on my skin.
A pleasant, tame and weaker tea creation hat is more floral than tea initially. Some notes are a bit weak and generic, other are more convincing. The performance is limited. Overall 2.75/5
