Weighed and light felt.
Since Elie Saab poured a whole barrel of orange blossom concentrate over our heads with "Le Parfum", I have been at war with this note. This is also the reason why I can't really get warm with L'Heure de Nuit, if Thierry Wasser is also more careful with this fragrance. Among other things, it is noted that the fragrance is identical to L'Heure Bleue - Le Zenith, who in turn celebrates the anniversary of L'Heure Bleue. Apart from that, I've long resented Guerlain's new editions with a different name - just from the different editions that are all related or identical to Guet-Apens, I get dizzy. But that's just by the way.

When I try to hide this background, L`Heure de Nuit is actually a floral scent with no corners or edges. Flattering, tenderly powdery and more skilful in handling the notes than is the case with many an orange blossom scent. But that's it for me already and that's not enough anymore.

In my opinion, the comparison of L'Heure Bleue and L'Heure de Nuit is symptomatic of the comparison between the "old" guerilla scents and the Thierry water age. While L'Heure Bleue with the carnation and the violet develops a magically melancholic, rather dark and mysterious mood, L'Heure de Nuit with the omnipresent orange blossom is a flower dream for me, but for me has no recognition value. The scent is noble, Thierry Wasser knows his trade, but I wouldn't think of Guerlain first in a blind test and certainly not of nighttime romance.

Of course, it is difficult to try to build on a great legacy with a perfume. To grind down the inherited treasures but their peculiarities is not the right way for me.

Mummeling don't have sex
My sister wanted to know at the first test what a beautiful "mummelduft" I'm wearing.

"Wrap up", or better said "wrap up" means in our family as much as "cuddle up", variations of it are "warm wrap up", "tight wrap up" and "comfortable wrap up".

Only children or adults stricken by illness and sadness mumble.
There is always no ulterior motive to mumbling, it is only about closeness, warmth and innocent tenderness, as a mother feels towards her child.

Rarely have I had a scent under my nose that was more innocent than this one.
And innocence does not quite describe what I mean, even if L'Heure de Nuit can certainly express that in a very young woman.

If I were to assign this perfume to an archetype, it would be "the mother."

Beautifully lively and honest like a child's laugh, soft like the fluffiest of all cuddly blankets, gentle like the most tender of all embraces, comforting like a kiss on the forehead, but full of confidence, sunbeams and tender strength.

A thoroughly friendly, loving fragrance whose name mMn is completely misleading because it is full of light.

A fragrance that does not frighten anyone in the slightest, evokes sympathies, makes you feel mild, fills you with a sense of well-being, conjures up a smile on faces and almost magically attracts children and animals.

Yes, my sister is absolutely right.

Have a nice trip, Dad!
Last week my father passed away, peacefully, quietly and without a stir.
He's always been that way, and he died the way he lived. Just don't notice, what are people supposed to think?
In the end he had 45 kilos left over, in the end he simply had no strength left, and now he is no longer there.

I was with him in his last days, day and night. "L'heure de Nuit", my favourite fragrance, was with us and at least carried me during these exhausting and demanding hours. Even when his hour of the night actually dawned, this fragrance was there - powerful, pregnant and present.
I ragged weeks before his death to see if this choice would be the right one. Whether I will still like the smell "afterwards", because it will always have this connection.

And YES! I love this wonderful, clean, strong, deep fragrance now and forever!

Daddy liked him too - as soon as his front door unlocked to visit him, he knew I was there and you could watch him relax.

THAT, yes THAT, I will not forget this perfume and every time I choose it in the future, my beloved dad will be there and invisibly strengthen my back.

A few, for me irrelevant, but for the Parfumo-Kommentar not quite unimportant character traits of the fragrance:
powdery and soft, as so often with Guerlain. Adult and self-confident - no parallels to the newer Quietschis under Thierry Wasser. And - long-lasting, meaning durable. Here - so I think - he had a real great moment.

Probably -smile!- Because of my daddy. I guess that's the way it should have been.

Okay, I know:
i haven't told too much about the fragrance itself and its performance now, but somehow I find it rather difficult in this context. But there are enough other, quite great comments, which describe more the smell than a story behind it.

Moonlight - Daylight
I have already dedicated a comment to the great-grandmother L'Heure Bleue and told her about the difficulties we had together at the beginning. Therefore I also wanted to describe the beautiful great-granddaughter L'Heure de Nuit or at least try it.

Already when spraying on I recognize a certain family resemblance. L'Heure de Nuit cannot deny which stable she comes from and she does not want that either. She is proud of her wonderful ancestor and I regard this fragrance as a tribute to her fantastic role model and his creator Jacques Guerlain. Chapeau Monsieur Water, you've done great.

L'Heure de Nuit opens with bergamot and anise, but much smoother and not as brittle as L'Heure Bleue. There is no musty impression, because the peach with its discreet sweetness smoothes the edges. There are also no flight reflexes released with me like with the big ancestress - on the contrary. Already the intro awakens my curiosity about everything that may still come. And there is still a lot to come.

The white flowering plants used give the fragrance a cheerful overall impression. I couldn't smell rose because jasmine and orange blossom, for my part, take the room completely for themselves. The slightly dark vanilla is overpowdered by iris and gains depth through light musk.

The melancholy of L'Heure Bleue does not know the young beauty created by Thierry Wasser. Thoughtfulness and a touch of melancholy, however, are present. But this creates a certain sensuality ... desire, desire and also promise with a sweetness that the great-grandmother lacks, but cannot be compared with other currently sought-after sweet gourmands.

L'Heure de Nuit radiates subtle eroticism and convinces with soft tones. A good choice for two hours, not just at night. Which is not to say that L'Heure de Nuit should only be worn in camera. This fragrance is never out of place and can be worn during the day or in the evening. But if you're looking for a party killer, you should turn to other perfumes.

I'm beautifully wrapped and accompanied for about 8 hours - but only close to my body, as is the case with most fragrances.

The sensual sister who goes out and dances..
.....while her older sister, "Après L'Ondée", stays at home, sits in front of the fireplace and reads. Maybe that also explains the somewhat melancholic, dreamy thing that clings to her. But today it's not about the more inconspicuous, more reserved of the two, but about them, the seductive, the mysterious.
Please don't think me crazy, but L'Heure de Nuit actually reminded me spontaneously of Après l'Ondée. But only at the very beginning, because they both have this clear and unusual anise note for me. At L'Heure she greets briefly and then retreats to focus on lush, wasteful flowers.
Seldom do fragrance comments tempt me to let romantic stories flow from my laptop, but in this case it has to be simple. Be patient with my indulgence, I promise to analyse the next scent in a few dry words in a scientific-clinical way!
But here it must be the picture that triggers "L`Heure de Nuit" in my head, anything else would not do justice to the fragrance: A sensual, dark beauty with long, smooth hair, richly adorned with orange blossoms and jasmine. Her skin is velvety and in its overdance she leaves behind a hint of peach and vanilla. She is spirited - her dance is the tango in its extreme, untamed original form, which moves between the poles of passionate desire and lustful suffering, between aggressive rejection and subjugating devotion, between exaltation and shy intimacy with dreamy certainty.
For me, L'Heure de Nuit is an extremely sensual fragrance - and if ever this word is justified, then here: beguilingly beautiful!
It is peculiar, because the little water with this magical effect on me is not too lush or too unusual to wear during the day, it is not superficial or aggressive, it could also be placed in the category powder dream and unicorn dust, it is flowery-spicy, elegant and dreamy at the same time and I could imagine that it adapts to my mood. Different moods flash up - just like a gemstone with an unusual facet cut.
In the further course, the resemblance to Après L'Ondée interestingly increases again for me. But while I always had to think about what occasion and what mood it really suits me at Après and which was worn far too seldom, the question does not really arise at L'Heure de Nuit, because the answer is clear to me from the start: Always to wear, of course!
And so I think for a moment whether I should get the more reserved sister out of the souk again, but then I stick to it: Fragrances that are worn too rarely should find a home where they can show their beauty more often than with me!
