Donna Karan Black Cashmere Eau de Parfum was launched in 2002 and was Donna Karan's sixth fragrance release for women.
I received a bottle of Black Cashmere as a gift a couple of years ago, the Parfum came in a plain glossy black box, and the bottle itself is plain black too with gold writing.
The bottle is an oval shape and flat on one side and is designed to lie flat on it's side rather than stand upright,
and although the parfum was used up long ago , I kept the bottle as I liked the simple shape of it and now it sits on the shelf in my bathroom.
The bottle has a simple spray application and gives the right amount with each spray.
The parfum has top notes of.....................
Saffron, Masala Spices, Clove and Nutmeg,
with middle notes of ........................
Pimento Berries, White Pepper CO2 Extract,
And lower notes of..............................
Mediterranean Broom Flower, Patchouli Singapour, Crimson Red Marechal Rose, Ethiopian Guggal Incense, Wengue Wood, Bois de Miel
With the first spray there is a definite scent of a rich spicey woodiness,
strong but not overpowering,
this soon settles down to a distinctive aroma which is spicey but sweet at the same time.
I would spray this on in the morning and could still smell it by evening so it is longlasting,
and I woukd say this parfum would be best used in the colder months rather than summer as I think the combination of spices ect could be too overpowering in the hotter weather.
This is a really lovely and sophisticated parfum which has very rich and sensual aromas and will receive a lot of compliments.
As this was a gift I dont know how much it cost but a web search shows a range of prices from £30 - £52 for a 50 ml bottle.
