    So subtle, it practically doesn't exist - lilac, violet, musk, vanilla, cinammon, heliotrope, jasmine, oak moss, cardamom, rose, jasmine, ylang, iris, sandalwood, patchouli, vetiver, tonka, oak moss, labdanum, tolu - you'd think this would make a great statement, but it does not.

    It is so subtle that sillage is nonexistent - you have to be intimate with the wearer in order to encounter it and then it will have blended with the wearer's natural body scent - the purpose of a great perfume???? - yes.

    This is one of the subtlest scents ever created - edc does not do it justice - buy pure parfum or nothing.

    Perfect signature scent for that assertive yet loving mature lady

    Review is for the relaunched EdT.

    Wow, what a fragrance! At first sniff, there is so much going on that it will repulse you and draw you in at the same time. First association was with Chanel No. 19 because of the bright green note. But it is immediately clear that there is way more going on here, as a sweetness hangs around to balance the green so neither is dominating. Then there is s strong saopy accord that is immediately reminiscent of Europe...a fine soap shop in the countryside of France.

    Then visions of the wearer appear: a mature lady, accomplished professional, well accustomed to running things and big decision making. Her outfit is a well tailored skirt suit, in a shade of grey not too light not too dark. Her blouse is cream colored, which complements the pearls and gold necklace/earring combo. She is accompanied by staff that answer her beck and call, though equally well dressed and accomplished.

    This is a gem of a fragrance, one that is for that person who desires to be above the rest, and thrives in being sophisticated and knowing. My only issue with this is that you almost cannot be playful while wearing this. Though there is a sweet personality side to the fragrance, it is sheltered in the serious facade of the wearer. This quality relegates the fragrance to day time office business (I am the boss) use. Perfect for power-brokering females the world over.

    Pros: Beautiful, unmistakable, rare, quality, all-in-one
    Cons: Might be too serious for some"

    A soapy, powdery, balsamic Chypre featuring orange blossom, balsam, oakmoss, and spices. There is some broom in this, which might account for its strangeness. Broom (or Genet) is not a usual note, and it tends to add haylike or tobacco nuances to a fragrance. Along with oakmoss, that would impart an old-fashioned character to this perfume that modern tastes would find challenging.

    "All my writing is about the recognition that there is no single reality. But the beauty of it is that you nevertheless go on, walking towards utopia, which may not exist, on a bridge which might end before you reach the other side."
    Marguerite Young

    Nuit de Longchamps is one of those scents that you will never mistake for another. My mini is dark caramel in color wiht a black top, so I believe I own a vintage version.

    It seems every time I wear this it wears differently; thus, my attraction to the above comment 'no single reality'. Sometimes it is a strong hairspray/aldehyde that makes me think 'oh oh', and sometimes it is a smooth, highly polished woody oriental. I want to point out the two balsam notes, so ask yourself how you've rated similar scents in the past (Ormond's Tolu Balsam, for example). The dry down is sweeter than the sandalwood/oakmoss would suggest.

    I agree that this is more of a 'mature' scent. If you bid for it on ebay you won't be competing with any of the younguns, that's for sure. Certianly for your own private utopian use.

    I like it, and place it in my 'quirky gems' category.

    Hilaryjane very kindly sent me a sample of this in Eau de Cologne form and the formulation which is now considered vintage. A complex oriental blast of rose,ylang,powder, orange blossom ,carnation -smooth and rich even in cologne strength. The opening reminds me a little of Opium , Normandie by Jean Patou and Jubilation 25 by Amouage after which it veers into a powdery ,lighter ,rosy dustiness .
    Classically good ladies' 'perfume.'

    I believe I have a vintage sample. There is nothing remotely modern in what I am smelling. This scent opens in the way common to many vintage scents when I assume the top citrus-type notes have turned. The powdery base is apparent right from the beginning..strong powder. When it settles an indistinct ylang/rose/carnation arises. The powder has a more vanilla tone. It's a powdery floral on my skin, similar to "Ecusson." It evokes the past. It's hard for me to comment..I'm not sure how well it has traveled over time.
