Thread: Vol de Nuit Current Formulation
I am wearing VDN now and I just want to say, OMG! What a beauty! This is the parfum extrait from a couple of years ago. We've got major bergamot or galbanum or both up front and narcissus in the middle. Not sure what else but it just envelopes you in a heavy chypre/leather cloud- but there's an amber/oriental aspect, too. Well, I'm firmly in the fan club.
See my blog; http://www.basenotes.net/blogs/2645-kumquat
I find a similarity to Weil de Weil, my sole VdN experience being a decant whose concentration I can't recall. WdW certainly has galbanum and jonquil, finishes with leather and civet, whereas I found VdN to soft-land right on the Guerlinade. Has anyone else sniffed both?
What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!
