Nuit de Sable
In this garden of the sumptuous Palais Royal, out of sight, the pages of a book are slowly turning. Intrigued, a silhouette advances to start the conversation. It is there, at the end of the afternoon, sitting on a bench in front of a sumptuous bed of roses with a scent mixed with sand, where they meet. Oblivious of the time that passed, reality ends up catching up to them. The guard’s keys come to close the garden doors...

Creamy sandalwood...
I love and adore Gris Charnel and Rouge Smoking by BDK. Therefore, I would of course also test Nuit de Sable. Nuit de Sable is for me a fragrance that simply smells very good but for me personally too little feminine and too little perfume radiates.... I find the 100% unisex and see the purely personally a bit more on a man than on a woman. As a woman I would find the right fit, if I were for example now in the Emirates on the road. Here was the heat and in the oriental environment also come for me as a woman in question but here in Europe in the north, is the me personally a bit too masculine and too woody but the smells fantastic ...

Nuit de Sable smells good, even very very good but the has just very much light wood and spices. Rose smell I quite honestly not at all, but a lot of sandalwood and nutmeg. In the first minutes the scent is very spicy and again I have to think of Emirates... Spice souk and heat. Cardamom, nutmeg, cumin, etc, all very apparent. In drydown it becomes very woody and very sandy.... I immediately have the smell/scent of sand in my nose when I spray the scent on. Sand that is almost scorching hot. There are also aromas of sandalwood that are very very present.... If you imagine a piece of wood that is almost burning hot in the sand on the beach, you can imagine a bit how the fragrance smells.... Ambroxan lends the fragrance at the same time a kind of powderiness..

The fragrance is in the course of softer and creamier and at some point the spices withdraw totally and remains a very creamy sandalwood, which smells really incredibly beautiful ... The base is the most beautiful but even here the fragrance smells like an extremely good smelling cream with beautiful woody notes and not like a perfume..

I have to test the further..Who stands on creamy woody fragrances, should test the fragrance for sure....

Cardamom and sandalwood from bdk
Nuit de Sable is a creation of the French Marie Schnirer (9 fragrances on Parfumo). Enthusiastic about classical music, dance and singing, the well-travelled young perfumer studied chemistry at L'Université 7 until she transferred to L'École Supérieure du Parfum (both in Paris) - an institute (unique in the world, according to herself) for the creative and commercial study of perfume art and business. In 2017, she co-founded Maelstrom (laboratoire de parfum indépendant), an independent development lab in Paris, with Yohan Cervi (creative director) and perfumer Patrice Revillard (12 fragrances on Parfumo).

In 2019, Schnirer created Nuit de Sable for bdk (named after founder and CEO David Benedek). Although - much like Maelstrom - a newcomer to the perfume business, the Parisian perfume house, which was only founded in 2016 and is likely to be known to a wider public in particular for Gris Charnel, Rouge Smoking and Crème de Cuir, is currently the most popular client of the three young Maelstrom creatives. (Other clients include Panogue Paris, Téo Cabanel and Visiteur.) Nuit de Sable appeared at bdk in La collection Parisienne. This association may be more than a marketing strategy: while Parisienne Schnirer was inspired for Nuit de Sable by a summer stroll in the gardens of Paris' Palais Royal (the brief probably came from David Benedek), bdk's headquarters are just a stone's throw from this stately oasis in the heart of the French capital, and Benedek's parents' perfumery is also not far from the gardens, which are said to have played a major role in perfume house founder Benedek's childhood.

Nuit de Sable, the 'Night of the Sand', Schnirer has dedicated to cardamom. The capsule fruits of the plant, originally from India (today often imported from Guatemala), contain an essential oil that exudes a fresh, sweet-pungent aroma. In this it resembles the characteristics of ginger, which is related to it. Cardamom, which can also be somewhat reminiscent of eucalyptus or peppermint, plays the main role in Schnirer's fragrance composition. In the top note it is accompanied by a fine, fresh nutmeg, and in the heart note it is joined by aspects of a 'deconstructed' rose - "ne gardant de la rose que certaines de ses facettes "*: in particular the green freshness and the fruity honey sweetness. However, Nuit de Sable does not smell floral through the use of these single, isolated facets of the rose scent. Rather, the eau de parfum wants to represent the totality of aromatic diversity, density and heaviness of a hot summer night in said, windless, shielded from the noise of the city and lushly planted (also with roses) city gardens, which completely surround the city palace built for Cardinal de Richelieu in 1627.

In the course to the base note, the interplay of cardamom dominates with a creation that Marie Schnirer calls 'chord of hot sand' and which she composed solely for Nuit de Sable. The 'hot sand' is (unmistakably) composed of light sandalwood and dry-salty, mineral notes. (The illusion certainly seems very well done here.) More technical than olfactory, the often unjustly maligned ambroxan (synthesized by Firmenich) also lends Schnirer's Nuit de Sable depth and a certain, pleasant muddiness. After a few hours, the bdk perfume fades out like a vanilla-sweet, slightly mineral sandalwood scent. It seems a little unfortunate that the nutmeg, which gives the fragrance a very pleasant, dry-fresh spiciness in the top note, lacks any imprint as it progresses. Overall, it also seems desirable to me, heart and base notes would not be dominated too quickly by sandalwood.

Nevertheless, as a friend of cardamom and sandalwood fragrances, I am very happy about Marie Schnirer's young and independent fragrance creation. She has created an excellent, warm cardamom perfume. If you love Ford's Oud Wood because of this unusual fragrance component, and if you also appreciate sandalwood scents like Essence No. 8 (Elie Saab), Indian Sandalwood (Dunhill), Monsieur Beauregard (Penhaligon's), and others, you'll probably like Nuit de Sable right away.

Its a very spicy sandalwood scent. The cumin is intense, the rose isnt very noticeable just gives a floral vibe but still the spices prevail
