The one who wears Nocturnes
Being a far descendant of Aphrodite, she is born from the foam. Not the sea foam though. The story of a modern Goddess begins in a foamy bath and follows the rituals of hygiene. Her low-key style consists of a white freshly ironed blouse and a black skirt. She might have sacrificed the length of her hair, but kept enough femininity in the seducing curves of her body. She loves fresh air and white flowers - lilies, white roses, lilies of the valley, so her favorite perfume must be Nocturnes by Caron.

Nocturnes, a bouquet of white flowers with an crispy edge of cool aldehydes. Fresh, clean and soapy as well as sensual, innocent and feminine.

This apparition is inspired by a cologne fraîche version from a miniature, but could also be applied to the modern EDT (there are some differences in smell though).

Ignored too long
In my early perfumista days I sniffed my way through most Carons and fell in love with several. Once acquired, they soon sat unused as I explored perfumery, discovering new passions. Tonight Nocturnes caught my eye and I sprayed it on, preparing for bed. What a beauty this classic fragrance is -- a heart of lovely, indolic flowers, a base full of all that's good in a base, and a top of citrus with aldehydes and some green notes. Fragrances like this feel familiar because they've been copied so much. In fact, if I were going to experiment with creating a perfume, I'd go right out and get myself some Bergamot, Jasmine, Rose, Amber, Musk, Vanilla and Sandalwood for a start. My Caron brochure says Nocturnes also has neroli and a luxurious orange is detectable in the top. Unfortunately, on me few Carons have the staying power I like, but they stay long enough to get attention and, in this case, lull the wearer to sweet dreams. Good job, Gerard Lefort, as per usual.

Lovely classical Floral
Nocturne is a very classical fragrance, powdery and flowery, elegant and sophisticated. Although it was created in the 80s, it is not a loud fragrance and far from beeing vulgar. And fortunately enough, it has not yet been re-formulated - like many of the old Caron classics, which have undergone changes which make me cry. Nocturnes is still there, not really exciting, but pleasant.
