During quickly approaching Pitti Fragranze 14 (Florence, 09-11 September 2016), Parisian Maison Olibere Parfums will present its sixth, long-awaited composition and Persefume is here to bring you first exclusive news on this exciting launch!

As you might remember from our recent “He says, she says” review of five initial scents, Olibere‘s creations have been dedicated to love and travel destinations. The newest L’Étoile Noire breaks this rule – it is not about any particular place anymore, but rather your inner journey, the state of mind. Inspired by her experiences, Founder and Creative Director of the brand, Marjorie Olibere envisioned fragrance which combines both dark and light elements, ying and yang energy, mystery and hope.

This concept has been achieved with support of Amélie Bourgeois of Flair Paris, talented perfumer who already composed two Olibere’s fragrances: Midnight Spirit and Il Mio Segreto.

Coffret-L’ÉTOILE NOIRE-fond blanc - Olibere (1)

Olibere Paris L’Étoile Noire

Heart: Rose, Spices, Virginia Cedar
Base: Incense, Indonesian Patchouli, Tobacco, Tonka Bean, Ambroxan, Vanilla

After the preview, we can say that L’Étoile Noire is the most brave scent of the line and it will surely gain lot of new fans:

Jakub – Intense, heavy composition ending up with spices and raw patchouli. Luckily I do not detect declared aquatics, but rather mysterious woods. Very well done – Amelie perfectly translated the concept into fragrance!

Aleksandra- L’Étoile Noire opens with a burst of fresh citruses and a distinctive, bright rose-geranium accord. Then cedar kicks in, slowing the tempo and dimming lights. The perfume turns into darker and more mysterious concoction, with hints of dark red lurking from beneath smoky wood.

L’Étoile Noire is going to be promoted in the innovative way – through Olibere Fragrance in Motion Awards. Both professional and amateur filmmakers received unnamed samples of the scent and were asked to create short movie promoting the composition. Results will be revealed at Milano Film Festival in September 2016.


Olibere Paris L’Étoile Noire will be available as Eau de Parfum 50ml (98 EUR) and 100ml (145 EUR) from October 2016.
