    I bought Nocturnes de Caron (blind buy) & the aldehydes made it into a single note overpowering & really stinky floral.

It's not brilliant but is wearable & I haven't wasted my money.

    Now, that I've read all these posts about layering different fragrances together , I going to try some other scents with my Nocturnes & see if I can improve on the Nocturnes-Kenneth Cole combo!

    If anyone has any suggestions on different combos to try...please post them.
    You could always send it to me! A 'gift' is never wasted money.

    I can't resist a challenge, so...

    Brighter combos:
    Caron Nocturnes + Guerlain Shalimar Light
    Caron Nocturnes + Jo Malone Orange Blossom
    Caron Nocturnes + TBS Satsuma
    Caron Nocturnes + TBS Spirit of Moonflower
    Caron Nocturnes + Jo Malone French Lime Blossom
    Caron Nocturnes + Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey
    Caron Nocturnes + Guerlain AA Lemon Fresca
    Caron Nocturnes + Guerlain AA Flora Nerolia
    Caron Nocturnes + Guerlain AA Orange Magnifica
    Caron Nocturnes + Serge Lutens Fleurs de Citronnier
    Caron Nocturnes + Nemat White Musk
    Caron Nocturnes + Ava Luxe Egyptian Musk
    Caron Nocturnes + Ava Luxe Nude Musk
    Caron Nocturnes + Coty L'Aimant
    Caron Nocturnes + JC Brosseau Ombre Rose
    Caron Nocturnes + Stella McCartney Stella
    Caron Nocturnes + TBS Cassis Rose

    Heavier combos:
    Caron Nocturnes + Ava Luxe Gardenia Musk
    Caron Nocturnes + TBS Neroli Jasmine
    Caron Nocturnes + Ava Luxe Rasa
    Caron Nocturnes + Ava Luxe Dark Amber
    Caron Nocturnes + Prada by Prada
    Caron Nocturnes + TBS Altaro
    Caron Nocturnes + Gucci Eau de Parfum
    Caron Nocturnes + Ava Luxe Sweet Patchouli
    Caron Nocturnes + TBS Woody Sandalwood
    Caron Nocturnes + Serge Lutens A La Nuit
    Caron Nocturnes + Nemat Jasmine Flowers
    Caron Nocturnes + Carolina Herrera by Carolina Herrera
    Caron Nocturnes + Yves Rocher Neonatura Cocoon
    Caron Nocturnes + TBS Ananya
    Caron Nocturnes + Yves Rocher Rose Absolue

    This would be a lot easier to do if you enabled your wardrobe so that we can suggest recs using your current perfumes.

    Good Luck & Happy Sniffing!

    I love the idea of blending Nocturne with heavier scents...something that might deepen up the basenotes... I think I'll give the Cocoon suggestion a whirl

    Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions, Moondeva! Your lists are fantastic & very much appreciated.

    In regards to my wardrobe, I'm creating a new perfume collection at the moment. I was getting sick of all the O.K. (average) scents & have used most of them up now, so thought it was the perfect time to start a new & improved one.

    I've only got a couple of full sized bottles at present but have a heap of samples, decants & mini's. Plus, I've got about 15 Ava Luxe samples coming & I'm about to purchase Samsara EDP. Do you list your samples, etc. in your wardrobe or just your full sized bottles? Wasn't sure what to do, hence, I haven't got the wardrobe up & running yet.
    --------------------------------------
    Success!!! With a Nocturnes + Amber perfume oil combo. Absolutely fantastic!

    I ended up diluting some of my Nocturnes with joboba oil & a small amount of polysorbate 20 to help disperse the scent in the oil base. It was just too strong & stinky with my chemistry straight out of the bottle, although it took me ages to work this out. Then layered this with an amber perfume oil (Amber fragrance oil & joboba oil).

    It's divine...I love it...can't stop smelling my wrist...I'm in scent heaven!
