    Glitteralex, it's edt.

    I love the new Nocturnes edt, for the record. I prefer it even to my vintage bottle!

    Is this a newer version-it's really divine!

    It is. I have a tester of the 'snakeskin' in the 1oz, which I bought for like nothing. It' is the same as the new new bottle I have.
    I have a bottle of the edt which is an older splash, too. And while I LOVE it too, it's both sweeter and more musky-animalic. For me the recent formulation is a perfect aldehydic floral, much like First, and I especially like that it's so entirely unsweetened.

    I have a hard time believing the black glass bottle is not parfum. Why put it in such a small bottle? It seems more concentrated to me. Are we talking about the same thing? It comes in an oval light green case?



    I think this may be EDT;

    The top bottle looks like the Nuit de Noel ones discussed by Perfumeshrine recently

    (where she calls it sharkskin, not snakeskin)

    Yes, so now I'm really confused! (Sorry, I've just had a hysterectomy & had lots of medication!)

    It's actually shagreen, which is dyed rayskin, which is sanded down to a smooth surface, showing up the pearly hard lumps.

    So it's Nuit de Noel that comes in the Shagreen case. (Which is really only green cardboard, BTW) And the bottle is black glass. I'm not sure why it's called cobalt. It doesn't look blue to me.

    I did see one bottle and holder once on E-bay which had a real metal and real shagreen case!
