Summary: When I walk the dog early in the morning or late at night, I get hit with the beautiful smell of night blooming jasmine sometimes and that what this perfume is - pure jasmine in all it's glory (which also means it borders on too sweet). I only have touched the surface of Serge Lutens scents but the few I have tried are either very complex or straightforward like this one. Nothing mysterious about what it is - so if you like jasmine, this is a great scent.
Summary: A la Nuit is the quintessential jasmine soliflore showcasing the Queen Of Night Flower in its sweet musky glory . Gorgeous addictive opening of honey -white-musk and of course all jasmine, the indolic ( fecal - like ) factor is kept in check making this scent highly wearable. The punch is in the opening notes and it soon quietens down to a soft musky jasmine . It is a very realistic jasmine ,very romantic ,quite dreamy.
Summary: The Jasmine in this one is very evident and whilst I do tend to like floral perfumes, I find there is a very fine line between a great floral and smelling like an old lady, this one for me personally was just too reminiscent of what my Gran used to wear years ago. I did however toy with buying this one, it was a toss up between this and nuit de cellophane, I chose the latter because it was just that little bit more unusual.
Summary: A perfume for jasmin lovers only. It is loud and sultry, a great big intoxicating sillage, a fragrance for the night as it is rightly called, to be worn when going out or making love in bed, but definitely not a day time scent. The opening is distinctly one note, but over time it transgresses in to greener territory, a little bit of freshness, I was even able to make out a somewhat aquatic note.
Summary: A very true, strong jasmine. One of my preferred SL (top #1 is Fleurs d'Oranger). To me it smells so intense, so true to the real flower, like you are standing in front of a full blossoming Jasmine bush, in a hot summer night in a mediterranean country. It reminds me of Morocco or Tunisia...it is luxurious, warm, very feminine. Must be used with a light hand as it can be very "upfront" and strong and possibly cloying to some noses... especially in summer.
Summary: A la Nuit very accurately captures the wafting scent of jasmine on a subtropical night. I have jasmine shrubs/trees where I work in Asia--on my summer moonlight walks, I can smell the fragrance of jasmine infusing the night air from behind the garden wall. A la Nuit hit the nail on the head in capturing the redolent scent of jasmine in the still air of a balmy subtropical night.
Summary: This is a lovely true-to-life jasmine soliflore. Actually, I was told just this morning that this contains 3 different types of jasmine so maybe it's technically a jasmine triflore? :D It really does smell just like jasmine, and although I'm no floral girl, I do like this. It reminds me of summers in Austin. We had 2 yellow jasmine vines curling up around the posts of our gazebo.
