Nacre fragrance notes

Reviews of Nacre

Stardate 20180507:

Jean-Michel Duriez joined Patou when it was still independent and Kerleo was his boss. He learnt from the very best and you can see that influence in Forever, Yohji Homme and Nacre. I love all of them.

Nacre starts out with a berry fruit. I do not get ginger or pear. Perhaps this ginger+pear hit my nose as a berry accord. I also smell rose along with some other florals.

But it is the iris that brings it all together and gives the fragrance a sophisticated restraint.

The development is good. Within an hour it becomes iris dominated floral with an oriental backdrop.

Stays close to skin and lasts long. Ideal for formal occasions like art exhibition, state dinners and mud wrestling.

Jean Patou Nacre has a nice, restrained smell, warm and lightly sweet. It smells unisex to me, and reminds me of a scented candle, one of the good ones.

Strangely alluring, on my skin, this scent is ginger and grapefruit with a soapy ambery base. The floral notes are practically nowhere to be found and the scent is overall comforting and unique.

Nacre is a sweet, heavy, womanly perfume, best worn lightly! If you favor soft or unisex fragrances, this one is not for you! Heart notes of rose, orange blossom, and jasmine are even further warmed and sweetened by a base of vanilla and amber, topped off with pear and a bare hint of ginger. On my skin, this combination tended to turn soapy after a period of time.

If Nacre calls your name, save it for a special evening, a lusciously feminine outfit, and a romantic frame-of-mind. Wear it for slow-dancing, for cuddling on the front-porch swing afterwards, for a quiet night-cap, and whatever comes after that….
