Questions and Answers
Q: How does Philos Opus Noir smell?
A: Philos Opus Noir has a fruity and floral presentation, but it is much more than a standard cologne. It opens with just the pureness of rose before that slowly dissipates into ylang-ylang with ambergris. It also benefits from leather and nutmeg to liven up the heart. In the base, the foundation comes from those comforting scents of cedar, musk, vetiver and patchouli with a hint of vanilla to sweeten it up.
Q: Where do you apply Philos Opus Noir?
A: To increase the longevity of the fragrance, spray onto your major pulse points such as behind your ears, at the base of your neck, on the wrists, behind the knees and in the inner elbows.
Q: What is the fragrance concentration?
A: This is an eau de parfum. It should have moderate wear and longevity as it contains 15% to 20% oil. The oil concentration plays a huge role in the strength, especially after application. It will usually be rather strong. It also directly determines longevity, so applying too heavy will not make it last longer.
Q: Is Philos Opus Noir for him or her?
A: This cologne is a unisex offering. It doesn't go too far masculine or feminine. Even the rose in the opening quickly moves into richer notes. There is a balance within the fragrance that allows it to not conform.
Q: Does Philos Opus Noir last long?
A: This could work well to wear daily as it should last all day. Just be aware that body chemistry and environment can play a role in exactly how long. The typical wear for an EDP is six to eight hours. You might extend that by applying it to clothing as fibers will hold the scent longer than your skin.
Q: What fragrances smell similar?
A: Lattafa Suqraat, Al Haramain Attar Al Kaaba, Nabeel Lamya
Q: What season should I wear Philos Opus Noir?
A: This cologne doesn't tie to just one season. It can work well all year. While it does have a lot of floral notes, it also has a great balance that makes it work as a signature scent choice.
Q: Where can I buy it?
A: Perfume.com is perhaps one of the best online fragrance retailers because we offer the widest selection of authentic perfumes and colognes, competitive pricing and top-notch customer service.
