Green is the hope
My second Armaf clone of a Creed fragrance after Club de Nuit Intense and despite slight weaknesses the much better one!
The top note consists mainly of lemon and verbena and reminds me of southern France. A verbena tea with lemon, also as iced tea, was always welcome there to get through the midday heat, before changing to pastis and wine later.
Like the holidays in the south of France, the top note is unfortunately over much too quickly, but is replaced by a very beautiful heart (and all this without a 10-hour drive). Lavender is ubiquitous (Southern France again!), together with spices that I can't quite assign. The violet is also intensely perceptible, but fits in very well. It is a green, but not an exceptional floral scent. It also retains a little freshness from the top note; there is something slightly soapy and clean in the background. Very pleasant.
After 4 hours the base comes into play. Warm and spicy amber, dry wood and a touch of vanilla I perceive. The fragrance also becomes a bit sweeter, but not sticky. The transition from heart to base, from green-fresh to warm woody is the highlight of Tres Nuit. Great cinema!
Unfortunately, the film only lasts 90 minutes. After that only the base remains. That's not bad in itself, but it's also generic. It lacks that certain something that makes the scent special. However, Tres Nuit is now only perceptible very close to the skin, so it's no big deal. You can spray it on and start the journey all over again.
This brings us to my first small point of criticism: up to the base note, Tres Nuit fits perfectly for warmer temperatures, i.e. more spring and summer. The warm woody base note is more suitable for cooler temperatures, i.e. autumn and winter. The fragrance is a bit unround for me.
The second point of criticism concerns the durability: after a maximum of 6 hours it's over, unless I stick my nose right into my shirt. But it looks stupid and you can run into something. I would have hoped for something more. The silage is very good for that, because it is rather reserved.
Then what is the hope now?
Maybe one day I'll get the chance to test GIT and it will make everything a little better and last longer. It has a nice bottle and is worth the exorbitant extra price. Until then I will stay at Tres Nuit. Hope is also something beautiful!
