The original gemstone in a bottle, the perfume to which Yellow Diamond and Bright Crystal are flankers: Crystal Noir. Released in two versions, one eau de toilette and one eau de parfum. The two smell the same, with the toilette being a lighter scent that doesn't last quite as long. Crystal Noir is a dark and rich floral, with an amber, musk and sandalwood base. The heart is coconut, gardenia, orange blossom and peony. The opening is just as rich and smooth: cardamom, pepper and ginger. Crystal Noir is aptly named: an almost opaque scent that has a slight amount of clarity to it. It has the Versace signature bite of musk to it like Yellow Diamond and Bright Crystal, and it is perfect for nighttime and winter and autumn wear.

With its complex approach to note and accord, their is nothing average or everyday about this impressively seductive and undeniably feminine fragrance for the classiest of ladies, or those who wish to masquerade as one. Pepper, Ginger, Cardamom, Coconut, Gardenia, Orange Blossom, Peony, Sandalwood, Musk and Amber are the notes that bring this fragrance home and bring it home well.
