Caron – Nuit de Noel

Perfume: Nuit de Noel
House: Caron
Perfumer: Ernest Daltroff
Source: The Perfume Court
Size: 0.5 mL Parfum

Perfume Court Notes:rose, jasmine, ylang ylang, oakmoss, sandalwood and vetiver

Date: 2/7/08 Weather: 55 degrees, sunny

Comments: Starts as a sour powder. After 5 minutes, begin to pick up some spices in the powder, then back to sour powder. There is a definite green note in this. Eventually, I smell like a trunk in a dusty attic. I think my nose is out of whack today.
2 hours later I FINALLY get some flowers and the dust burns off to powder. A vanilla note also begins to lace through this. Like the drydown. Hate what it takes to get there.

Date: 3/30/08 Weather: 45 degrees, evening

Comments: Not as sour on this wearing. More mossy at the top. If smell close – may catch the sour orange note for the first 15 minutes of wearing. From a distance – spices and moss. 45 minutes in – the moss disappears and you wind up with a creamy/spicy/vanilla/carnation scent. Quite lovely. Gone the next morning.

Date: 12/22/08 Weather: 20 degrees, breezy, danged cold

Comments: A scent where I feel like I should be swanning about in fur, heavy makeup and cigarette holder with a lit Dunhill. Very dusty – like a box filled with an elegant ancestor’s old clothes. After a couple of hours – becomes a pretty spicy/vanilla/carnation. Closer wearing and more approachable. As much as I hate to admit this, this scent really doesn’t wear well on me the first hour. Gone after 7 hours.

  1. you know, this one changes on me every wearing, though never an unpleasant experience. Love it

  2. I’m a bit overdue revisiting this scent. Many Basenoters loooove this scent. I saw a bit of what they were talking about on the second wearing.
