Sparkling fruity oriental
The main notes selected by members above go for the drydown. This weird but gorgeous one, starts out full of aldehydes and sweet lovely fruits and flowers. It transforms after a while into a warm bunch of syrupy flowers laying under a layer of high quality powders. It ends in a very sweet animalic-balsamic oriental scent which isn't loud on my skin.

I find it rich, sparkling, bright and exuberant. It has the boldness and strength of the last century's ending decades perfumes but with an incredible rich sweetness that shadows some of the more recent orientals. This is a complex, and not so common blend of ingredients, that evolves beautifully along the first four hours on me. This combination of originality, deliciousness and complexity in evolution isn't new coming from the nose which created this perfume.

Sillage won't be agressive if you apply properly and I can still feel it after seven hours, so for my demanding skin, it is a long lasting perfume.

I love it and I'm really happy I could find a bottle after having tested it for a while. I suggest all very sweet oriental flower lovers to try it before it becomes absolutely impossible to find a bottle. The bottle by the way is beautiful too.

A perfect day
Only one small sample was enclosed with my order. It was Scherrer's Nuits Indiennes. A women's perfume. Probably another one of those pink/yellow one-size-fits-all fragrances, I guessed. From Scherrer I love only Scherrer (a Chyrpefan greets)...
But when I sprayed the scent I was transported to another world. And no, it was less oriental than exactly in my reality.

It's not a good day, you got up on the wrong side of the bed, maybe too little sleep, your project isn't going as it should - in short, it's the opposite of a perfect day.

Until this scent envelops you...I close my eyes and images of a perfect world emerge. Floral yes, but not too sweet. Like a wonderful garden of rare and unknown plants and creatures. A gentle veil of inimitable elegance weaves through the room. It gives things a positive attitude AND good thoughts - what seemed heavy earlier now comes across as light on its feet. The jasmine that I can usually be chased with now seems familiar and wonderful in its intensity. Should I have misjudged it, or is it just the successful interplay of all the indigrizas into a secret formula that seeks world domination?

I don't know, but that day I discovered Scherrer's Nuits Indiennes for myself became a perfect day.

An Indian tiger without claws
It was in September 2017 when we sat at the harbour for dinner in southern France. As it is, the terrace was full and everyone was in a good mood and enjoyed the evening. Suddenly a woman ran by and had a smell on her that captured not only me but the whole terrace. Wow, what a scent! She literally floated past us with this scent and it hung in the air minutes later. My husband wasn't the only visitor to inquire about that scent. Unfortunately she was already gone and I couldn't ask anymore. It was a soft, velvety slightly spicy fragrance - clearly an Oriental.

Although I'm more of a friend of the fresh flower scents I was fascinated by this Duftaura - I had to have it! Now I have rushed on everything oriental and have sniffed, ordered samples and bottlings, but none was it. I tested Coco, Samsara, Joop, Shalimar and other common suspects. Unfortunately, it wasn't. Everyone has a rather old-fashioned touch for me. I then left it and gave up my undertaking, almost forgot it until I noticed this scent again on my holiday in 2018. And this time I could immediately ask the wearer: It was Scherrer Nuit inddienne!!! A brand unknown to me until then. It was also bought immediately, because here in Germany Scherrer is rather hard to get. The fashion house Scherrer is probably also known in the fashion world for its exclusive creations.

Now to the fragrance: Nuit inddienne starts directly floral exotic spicy fresh. It reminds a little bit of Chanel No5 in this starting phase. The soapy aldehyde it may be. However, this impression changes quite quickly and makes room for extremely soft ylang ylang flowers, heliotrope and vanilla. Later accompanied by creamy sandalwood, wonderful benzoin and amber. But all in all a very homogeneous and incredibly mysterious sensual and feminine fragrance that captivates me from beginning to end and envelops me like a silky veil of fragrance. Nuit indienne is extremely extravagant and can be worn on special evenings or occasions. He needs a big robe to work. But he does, too. It gives a shell of soft exoticism and velvety femininity. An unusually beautiful fragrance for the grand entrance. The Sillage is in the high range, the durability is enormous with at least 10 hours.

Conclusion: Nuit indienne is a great seducer and flatterer. An unusual fragrance for the evening and for special occasions. He'd be too opulent for my office. The flowers make it a modern floral for women aged 25 and over who love a big appearance, life and warm fragrances. I got to know him in summer and find him wonderful for summer evenings. In our latitudes it is more suitable for autumn and winter.
