Nuit de Noel (Caron 1922) is a pungent sort of jasmine/rose… The oakmoss is given carte blanche and it plays with a memorably smoky, woody, almost old-book-dusty sort of amber.
This fragrance is punchy, and intense. Definitely filled with deep emotion… And while other florals aren’t listed beyond ylang ylang, jasmine and rose, it’s hard not to think there’s a few others quietly haunting the background. I think I smell something like carnation and maybe iris…
Intriguingly (to me) it debuted the same year as my beloved No. 22, and I think I can detect a very similar aesthetic… I love it!
Top notes: rose, jasmine and ylang ylang. Middle notes: sandalwood and oakmoss. Base notes: musk and amber. Nose: Ernest Daltroff
