Reviews of Explosions d’Emotions : Amour Nocturne

Sexy, creamy, soft, edible. Dulce de leche with an edge of bitter gunpowder. Love this stuff. It's one of three of the Explosion d'Emotions range that I own (the others being Skin On Skin and Onde Sensuelle) and it's my favourite. I love the way the gunpowder accord stops this from becoming cloying and keeps it just the right side of hideous-gourmand. It was my introduction to the work of the fascinating Bertrand Duchaufour; I find it to be...just lush. It gets complimented by anyone close enough to get a whiff - it wears close, but it's tenacious.

A scent of intimacy,insidiously metallic and irresistible on the skin of a desired being.opens metallic with a creamy undertone.this scent is kind of mix of the feelings of safety and comfort together with feelings of excitement and anticipation.the intriguing caramel and gunpowder accords do actually exist in this fragrance but they are much softer and under is the metallic veird gunpowder smell from the projector.Unusual,Milky,Gourmand,Impressive,Sweet, Unisex and Irresistible.

the metallic notes is strong but fades away and the fragrance fills with orchid and creamy milk and caramel giving it both a gourmand and clean feeling. the result is a scent of the sense set free to be shared or saved for intimate reminds me something creamy like irish cream liqueur.perfect for when you are going to a share a nice evening with your is recommend for intimate/special wear.test it first.


Longevity?Good on my skin.

I have been obsessed with this fragrance since I first tried it at Barney's and was thrilled when my 3 ml spray sample arrived today.

I find this edgy and contemporary. I definitely get a strong caramel and gunpowder that keeps me wanting to smell my wrist over and over. I don't really detect the cedar or orchid but get something nutty or coconut.

Another subverted gourmand from L'artisan. This one is interesting! When I first applied it I got some sweetness with a strong, bitter, rough note that reminded me almost of pepper or some other bitter spice. After reading the notes I totally recognize the gun powder accord. Yknow on the 4th of july, when the last few fireworks are launched off and theres just a slight haze over everything with that smoky smoldering scent? bingo. Shortly after the firecracker opening, a warm, smooth, sweet caramel note starts to wake up (no milk for me.. Im not really sure how one would be able to detect milk when theres a prominent caramel note anyway ). It grows and grows, and then right before it gets too sweet I suddenly notice that theres a nice, peppery cedar note. Was that there the whole time? I don't know..but it keeps getting more and more prominent. Eventually I was left with a slightly bitter cedary caramel fuzz that I really enjoyed. This is not a fragrance for everyone, its definitely unisex and almost unpleasant at first. I feel like this would greatly appeal to fans of Dzing who are looking for something else from the 'strange and sweet' corner of L'artisan. It definitely is not worth the ridiculous retail price but seeing as how it can be found at discounters for less than the normal l'artisans its worth a look! 8.5/10

Along with Deliria and Skin on Skin, I tried this a while ago but never bothered to write about it. I’m only returning to it now as its been haunting my inbox for far too long.

This is a milky, dusty, floral thing; quite figgy, and there’s a tinge of rose, but it smells more like a scene than anything recognizable as notes. In my mind, it’s an antiqued space—a sort of weathered Victorian-meets-cape cod affair. I can picture hues of pink, greys, and whites; faded wallpaper, distressed wood finishes, a ratty-by-design chaise with vintage teddy bears, strings of pearls, silk ribbons, old portraits in flaked-paint frames. It’s basically a Pottery Barn catalogue in scent form.

It’s a maudlin thing really—a sort of faux-old aesthetic designed for the mid-30s urban crowd. Musty and dry, slightly rubbery, vaguely nostalgic, generally washed out. It has some sweetness, but it’s more like sweetened tea (although it doesn’t smell like tea). Given that there are a few cheap chemicals sticking out of it, I’m not convinced that it’s worth the asking price, but it does accomplish a dusty thrift store-chic thing effectively. Merciful, really, considering what it could have smelled like.

Just a brief chance to sample all three of of the offerings in this line. I'd say this is the most feminine of the three, and comes across as beautiful and calming.
