The fragrance is a contemporary version of a timeless classic. Reflecting youth, vitality and spontaneity, the floral harmony blends subtle notes of mimosa and lilac offset by a crescendo of zesty jasmine and iris. The fragrance climaxes with sensual notes of sandalwood and amber. The bottle, shaped like a vase is topped by a carved floral motif on the stopper.

The nose behind this fragrance is Roger Pellegrino. Top notes are aldehydes, orange, green notes, mandarin orange and bergamot; middle notes are cyclamen, tuberose, orris root, jasmine, ylang-ylang, lily-of-the-valley and rose; base notes are sandalwood, amber, musk, benzoin, vanilla and vetiver. Nocturnes de Caron was launched in 1981. The nose behind this fragrance is Gerard Lefort.

Nocturnes de Caron Fragrance Reviews

ok, nocturnes was a love in the eighties, now it costs too much for the original and don't know how it might smell to do a blind buy for that amount of money, I really like 80s and 90s frag, big white florals and floral aldehydes,I know how good it was then but now I received a 1oz black topped bottle with the cutout glass and it smelled a little old, I really couldn't get the true fragrance out of it that I could remember and it was about 40 dollars, so I just pass on trying this again costs too much now and would be too hard too find a fresh one :(, oh yeah I did try the one in the cream color box with the dots but it was not the original it was long ago and I don't even remember what the smell was but it was not favorable or I would have remembered.
So, so much for that, I'll enjoy continue my conquests
Happy hunting for that right one!

Ok....on paper, this one smells divine---I blind bought it (it was inexpensive, and for vintage Caron who can argue?). On my skin we had about an hour of HOLY SOAP, BATMAN! Like very heavily expensive soap. But, that is to be expected with an aldehyde-heavy fragrance so I waited it out. I won't lie, soapy is not my thing. But oh, the drydown was heavenly. The vetiver, sandalwood, and musk softened the soapyness into something so gorgeous that I was really pleased with this blind buy! The tuberose adds some sweetness but it's not overly floral on my skin. It's aldehydes/vetiver/woods on me. But I love it.

Well, I would have to learn to love this one - that was my first impression.

edit about a week later:

This Caron is quite gentle. Interestingly, the spouse can smell this frag and he is notoriously anosmic.

I have learned something very interesting in trying Nocturnes out. It is better for me to test scents in the morning. I got a much better result after testing this a second time, in the a.m. Nocturnes simmered away softly in the background much of the day and then about mid afternoon, I picked up a lovely sweet note that I had not experienced earlier on.

If I was applying this a bit more liberally, than from drops out of a small tester decant, I believe I would pick all the details of Nocturnes much sooner. Also, maybe cooler temperatures would help? There is something vaguely familiar about this frag... or a feeling of a memory that won't quite surface. I need more of Nocturnes to track down what I can't remember.

Back in the eighties when Nocturnes came on the scene I sampled and added it to my collection along with the body lotion, which was just yummy! It reminds me of warm summer nights in my twenties and I received many a compliment when I wore it. It's a lovely, soapy, green floral with vanilla and vetiver in its base. Eventually I finished the bottle and went on to wear other scents. A few years ago I had a real craving for it and I managed to find a bottle like the one shown above with the deco label and black cap. It was exactly as I remembered it - not a reformulation and just as delicious as it was when I first wore it. It's really a gorgeous scent and I'm wearing it more and more these days. I suspect it might stir up a bit of interest as it's so different from what I usually wear. In a way it is filling the gap that's been left in my collection with the discontinuation of the original D&G Femme in the red velvet box.

for me this perfume smells like early 90's holiday spring..sundays springtime when all the good ol' days were just memory now. my childhood.. classic TV shows.. mom's cooking.. oh Caron

Update: different experience happen on my second spray.. I feel warm just like after I got massage with sandalwood oil. Yes, sandalwood is very subtle here. Warm, cuddling..

For whatever reason, I'm in a Caron mood this week, so this morning I chose vintage Nocturnes extrait in the Black bottle with the floral cut-out. Like Infini the reviews are mixed and my guess is that since this perfume came out in the 1980's, it wasn't long before they started reformulating it to death. I can't speak on any newer formulas as I haven't experienced them. My first experience with Nocturnes was with the EDT version pictured above. It was a pretty little floral, but not much much else. However, knowing Caron (especially before the 1980's as I don't trust much from ANY perfume house afterwards), I knew there had to be something more to the perfumers original concept than that. So I finally nabbed one of the older extraits in order to get the full effect. It's indeed a pretty floral, but as the perfume wears there are little nuances to it that keep me interested. Where Fleurs de Rocaille is a vase of flowers on the verge of decay, Nocturnes is a vase of mixed florals where some are still fresh and others have begun to decay. The effect is creamy, slightly soapy with undertones of sweet rot (in a good way). At some points I swear I can smell hints of oakmoss, but that may be the vetiver with the other notes. If I keep finding scents like these, I'm going to have to stop saying that I'm not a fan of florals.

I'd forgotten all about this scent until recently coming across a vintage bottle of it. This was a fragrances that I used several bottles of in the early 80's. It was a very beautiful soft floral whose aldehydes were never harsh.
Gentle is a good word to describe this scent. It is very slightly spicy & woodsy with the pretty sweetness of orange blossoms. It was a very good fragrance for office wear as it was polite yet youthful and always smelled fresh and inviting.
This fragrance seemed to have gotten drowned out of fashion by the powerhouse scents that came later in the decade. Had it been launched at some other time, it would probably be better known today.

I've no experience with the current formula but if you come across a vintage bottle don't hesitate to buy it. It truly was a quality fragrance that perhaps has more in common with today's sophisticated consumer than with the brash environment of the 80's.

This is such a good example of the ways in which our response to, and opinion of, any perfume changes over time. I had this one down as a like, and I have returned to change my rating to a solid love, and revise my review. I had underestimated this besuty. Yes, it is soapy, and I usually don't go for soapy. But, this one, this one has won my heart. This one has made me reconsider soapy.

Opens with a strong soapy Lily of the Valley. As often happens on Fragrantica, although LOTV is listed in the textual description, it is not included as a pictogram, so folks can't vote on LOTV. I swear, if LOTV was shown, folks would suddenly start smelling it, and it would place high on the notes list.

I like LOTV. I like Caron's own Muguet du Bonheur. But, in the past, I felt that this one was just a bit too soapy for my taste. The LOTV is strong for about the first two hours before it begins to soften, and the orange blossom, jasmine and tuberose take the stage. This is my favorite part of this fragrance, when the opening LOTV floral notes are soft, but still discernible, the rose comes into it's own, and the florals from the heart begin to unfold.

In the EDT, the orange is never that strong, nor is the tuberose. This is no tuberose monster. The ylang ylang is typical Caron, sweet and a little spicy. When the sandalwood, vetiver and musk enter, the whole composition takes on a more balanced and elegant structure. In the parfum de toilette version, with the black top, the LOTV is but a bit player, while the orange blossom, tuberose, and rose shine. I have it in two editions, a PDT and an EDT.

I returned today to revise my formerly lukewarm review. I like the EDT. But, I love the PdT. It is a little muskier, more of a creamy, vanillac tuberose, less soapy, sexier, but still perfect for daytime, office and professional settings. I would class this as a floral woody musk.

This perfume means for me the fatal attraction of the Past. It is so intriguing and a little bit scary. Make my imagination working, but I can’t identify the images. Not a perfume to express myself, I have a feeling I do not understand it, but I love it.
And I can’t recognize even one note separately.

Nocturnes is a scent I've been waiting to try for a while. With so many reviews of this, it's very easy to get wrapped up in the magical story added to it.
I'll start by saying I do not love it. But I like it and can see why others would.
Firstly, from my multiple testings of the decant sent to me kindly by Denoula, I will say that I feel this is at it's best when sprayed lightly. One light spritz and you have a dreamy, soapy floral.
This opens with a candied orange peel and quickly flows into a soapy jasmine offset with powdery iris. A tuberose is hiding behind this veil, thankfully not shouting out its presence. A dark earthy hint of vetiver grows as it wears and a very restrained sweetness between the orange and the vanilla at the base is always present.
Asides from being a pleasant fragrance, what impressed me about this is that it has a very melancholic feeling to it, that I expected from L'Heure Bleue but never really got quite like this one. That this is a modern update I can't really agree to, as I think if you really don't like vintage scents this won't necessarily win you over.
Overall a pretty dreamy vintage floral. I'll enjoy my decant but not quite FB worthy for me.

This is probably one of the worst fragrances under the Caron name. Its attempt at being an "update" to the classic floral aldehyde style just stripped it of any personality in place of sillage. The massive poison tuberose is here along with a steroid-junkie orange. The whole thing is uncomfortable and, while pleasant, doesn't do anything for me at all. There are a thousand fragrances out there that smell similar and just about all of them do it better than Nocturnes. I'm a pretty big Caron fan, but I really can't enjoy this.

I've been wearing this fragrance for 25 years and consider myself fortunate to still be able to get it via internet. I can only say that it is perfect. Floral, but not sweet or heady; sensual without being overly musky. I love how its character changes through its drydown, from floral at the beginning to incense-like when the base notes reveal themselves.

I love it and have been wearing it for years. It has always been my "never fail" scent of choice. For the past few years, however, I have only been able to buy it on-line. I totally agree with Marielon's comments about this fragrance. Thank you Marielon for your gift of expression.

Continuing on my journey with Caron, this is a gorgeous gorgeous soapy scent, saved from becoming a detergent by the beautiful white florals and zesty citrus. This is one scent that I will confidently say I can truly make out the loveliness of vetivier, one of my favourite notes now. I begin to see why vetivier is called the oil of tranquility and this perfume is aptly named Nocturne. Sillage is wonderful and projection amazing- it stayed with me all through another long day. I believe I'm becoming as fanatic for Caron's scents as I am about Guerlain's classics. A breath-taking heady liquid that's firmly on my "love" list and I'm so grateful for the forum thread on the House of Caron for introducing me to this wonderful collection. Compared to Guerlain's classics, Caron's scents are so much more affordable. I pray that this scent never disappears and that everyone at least gets a sample to try this beauty.

I scored a vintage mini on ebay, and I must say, I really love this. It opens fairly fruity, but the drydown is quite lovely, tuberose for awhile, then the vetiver and woodiness show themselves. Sillage and longetivity could be better, however, but I only have a dab-on so it may improve with an atomizer. All in all, a really nice frag from a classic house.

Had this when I was 17, wore it for years and loved it. I recently scored a mini from eBay apparently it's the original, hoping for the best. The one part of this fragrance that I always had trouble with was the "soapiness" that came off it...it does go through a transformation and settles nicely...

It's been a long time since I've smelled or worn this so I'm truly exited for the experience. I remember several notes: powder, incense and floral...the soap eventually would lift off.

Re: eBay mini / at first it's a bit rancid..this is upsetting...then I wait to see what happens maybe it will turn into something? It does I smell the flowers and soap but it is faint compared to what I remember wearing in the 1980's when I first discovered it. It faintly resembles Nocturnes. Sigh. It's not bad though I will wear it

I ordered this perfume based on a memory of trying it out back in the '80s when I was a teenager. I did this from a memory of 25+ years ago. I received it yesterday and immediately put some on, and I was dissappointed, thinking I remembered it wrong. It wasn't terrible, just a little disappointing.

Flash forward, after an hour of wearing it--NOW it was the wonderful smell I remembered. Beautiful memories started coming back of orange, sandalwood and vetyver blended so nicely.

I will be wearing it again today!

Belive it or not this is a perfume in a class of its own. Caron proves itself to be a quality house with quality goods.
Anyhow The Caron girl is this time quite the lady, not too heavy on the opening of neroli. A pleasant afternoon tea in the garden with a gin and tonic, a pretty dress and a handsome man.
The sun is setting the tuberose comes out to play. Too many gin and tonics and that handsome man in the garden. Sultry summer gardens and musky forbidden pleasures.
A fantastic fume for the adventerous perfumelover, you can really notice the development of the notes. I have alot of trouble with synthetic neroli and jasmine and florals in general....but this is a delight.........

I'm relatively new in "Perfume world" but as I smell and as I'm starting to understand the Caron scents are really something special. One by one, very good, a must have. Nocturnes de Caron especially.
I have had Caron En Avion and Narcise Noir for a long time, but till now I didn't use them a lot, seemed to me somehow too serious. This summer I found out super poudery Royal Bain de Caron and I've added it to my collection. Than followed Nocturnes, Parfum Sacre and Fleurs de Rocaille. They are all beautifull, clasy and timeless.

Very nice every day scent, nothig special but wearable and pleasant. Fresh aldehidic orange with some roses, well balanced with vanilla-amber. Very good composition - if I compare with some modern every day fresh scents I can say that Caron Nocturnes is an elegant chic perfume.

I don't even how I got this one.
I get many mini's and fragrances people don't want anymore, so that's how I must have ended up with this bottle/

Mini's I don't list, but this is an exception.
It's 10 ml and it says: Cologne Fraiche; something I've never seen with this fragrance.

I'd say it's strong enough and truly fraiche.
Classic, elegant as well and yes, an evening fragrance.

I may consider buying the EDP.

I waver between "like" and "love" with Nocturnes. It was the signature fragrance of a very good friend of mine in the late 80s/early 90s, so I hesitate to adopt it for my own. At the same time it's such a lovely fragrance I am sometimes tempted.

This opens with ylang ylang and jasmine/rose accord on my skin quickly followed by tuberose as if it's blooming on a warm day. Then, after drydown really begins the genius of this composition come out - there is a clean edge to the florals that is extremely mature and well balanced. I mean mature in the sense of refined, not stodgy, as this fragrance would wear well on a young woman as much as an older one. It's unapologetically feminine yet strong, sophisticated enough to be taken seriously.

The orange is mysterious but distinct in the way it works with the more prickly aspects of the fragrance to pull the sense of green, if not actual leafy or grassy green notes, along with all those flowers. This tempers the floral notes and lends the whole a slightly cooler feeling, though it's not at all a cold fragrance.

Hm, seems that I am veering toward the "love" end of the spectrum on this one. I will keep testing it to see how this affair goes.

Nocturnes is Beethoven's Pastorale Symphony, Movement 2, The Scene at the Brook. It invites creatures of the woods- nymphs and fairies- to cavort in a secret place in an enchanted, moonlit glen. The sweet odor of orange blossoms wafts through the fragrant forest in ambrosial ribbons as the creatures coadunate in a sublimely choreographed pavane.

Then the dawn approaches and the creatures vanish with the dew drops. The moonlit glen is found to be littered with fairy trash-- stale mead, stagnant water and wild boar droppings. Too bad it couldn't go on, but it was a hell of a party while it lasted.

Nocturnes is a beautiful and less heady reinterpretation of Chanel N5, this version is between Liu (Guerlain) and First by Van cleef (but without the horrible black currant note).

This is a very lovely floral fragrance. I think may be Orange blosoon and the aldehydes takes center stage, but all the other notes are very well balanced.

Classy, subtle in the dry-down; on my skin after 5 mins of applying feels a lot like Chanel No 5- Eau Premiere, but then it becomes a lot more subtle. In spite of what others here say it does not have a great lasting power on me, but I find it very soft and charming!

I get the feeling that this one reminds me on a Jil Sander´s "Jil" the original and Priscilla Presley´s " Experiences". I mean the drydown are almost the same.
I do not like "Jil", but this one is very nice: woody, spicy and surprisingly i do not get much rose notes or powder in it. I can´t get rid of the smokey note, just like a tobacco or something. And it is absolutly not disturbing me. The drydown is sooooo nice and warm.

Can anyone tell the differences in bottles? I have found the black boxes with black lids, the black bozes with blue upper part and also the oval bottles in a white boxes. Which one is better? Anyone has any experience with that?

For me it is partly similar to Carthusia Aria di Capri - the same smell of the expensive face cream. But Carthusia is more creamy. Nocturnes is a little old fashioned, but the elegant expensive scent.

Today I received my bottle of Nocturnes in the new design, pack blue ...... I opened the package, took out a welcome bottle. I sprayed it on my wrist and started to sniff. Hmm, I thought I got a very different fragrance, not the Nocturne, which was in my late 80's the 20 century .... Nocturnes is no longer available in the old design?? Only in new?? I could not get a copy of perfume??

Nocturnes is a classical fragrance, aldehydic, flowery, and elegant and in spite of its date of birth (a child of the 80's!), it's neither loud nor vulgar. Fortunately enough, it seems to be "intact" - i.e. not yet reformulated. Nocturnes is neither exciting, nor a milestone, but I find it very versatile, very wearable and ladylike. Excellent longevity and sillage. I also love the original bottle and packaging.

The opening of Nocturnes EDT is like an assault! Sharp, prickly, green neroli is incredibly bracing taking its first breath. It does quickly round out into a sweeter more rosey hue and a deep, mysterious orange. As the perfume progresses I lose a lot of differentiation of notes and it quietens into an incredibly soft floral, like a whisper.

I don't particularly care for citrus is my perfumes but Nocturnes does this very nicely. The tuberose, also a problem area for me, is very subdued here. Whatever aldehydes are here, are not of the musty, attic-dwelling kind, they are very gentle.

Nocturnes has defied everyone of my dubious expectations and I am seriously impressed. I feel sweet and feminine and pretty wearing this. No mean feat I may tell you!

Nocturnes is a big letdown for me! I'd never smelled it before but ordered a bottle from a perfume website that had it on sale and I was hoping I would love it but I definitely don't! As one reviewer here has mentioned, it is "old school", which isn't necessarily a bad thing depending on the perfume and some old school ones are very nice. For me though, Nocturnes is actually quite unpleasant. I thought it smelled quite sickly, cloying and too powdery. There was a very annoying note in it which I can't put my finger on but it really wasn't very pleasant. I tried to give Nocturnes time to settle on my skin but I found the smell so off-putting that I had to wash it off after a few minutes so I'll definitely be returning my bottle and getting a refund! Also, what came to mind when I was trying to think what the perfume reminded me of was medicine .. maybe Pepto Bismol!

I'm very disappointed because I was expecting Nocturnes to smell lovely but it doesn't at all. The bottle though (which is the curvy, retro one) is very nice!

Today I received my bottle of Nocturnes. I sprayed it on my wrist and started to sniff. Hmm, at the begginning I get something extremely soapy and oldschool, The dominant note is definetely rose. The rose smells just the same as my grandmoms perfume oils with Bulgarian rose. I can't understand those who find some spicyness in Nocturnes, because I'm not getting any of those.

Nocturnes has a really feminine and classic scent. The scent is really elegant.
I can't yet say if I'm gonna wear it, cuz I'm in my early twenties, so I shall try and see if it works out.

Definetely not a perfume for those fruity/gourmand lovers.

The ideal woman for wearing Nocturnes would be a feminine, classy woman, wearing a light dress in a summertime.

UPD: As time passes by (it's almost an hour since I sprayed Nocturnes) I start to enjoy it more, so there actually might be a chance that I will take Nocturnes to a night out :)

Ou, and the bottle - LOVELY :)

UPD: I wore Nocturnes today before going to a beach - it's gorgeous and a keeper definetely. And the lasting power for EDT is amazing. After a swim I could still feel it on my neck.

I smelled a sample of this years and years ago (well in the 80s as a teenager), in a sadly long-gone tiny posh cosmetic and perfume boutique.
I was entranced by what I remember to be the scent's 'grassiness'.
I've remembered it for years and bought a bottle of Nocturnes last year from a net seller.
The first sniff was exactly as I remembered it, I was delighted.
Now, I would say that the top notes of Nocturnes are verrry similar to those of my long-lost Armani Armani, their first female fragrance.
On wearing it however, Nocturnes took on a very much unwanted spicy note for me.
I'm a bit baffled by what the culprit could be, looking at the notes portrayed above. I would have said maybe carnation (yick). Maybe it's the ylang ylang actually. Something with horrid eugenol in it I'll bet.
Anyway, Nocturnes is one of those that I gave to my Mum because she doesn't mind spice and she wears it occasionally.

For me Nocturnes was a surprise from a far away world. There is something so nostalgic about the top notes, something so delicate that it cannot be true. The lilac, mimosa and iris combine into something unique, meditative like a blooming garden in summertime nights, bringing new flower scents with every waft of wind, dusky and romantic. The aldehydes make it a slightly soapy, warm scent, soft like a whisper from your beloved. Very recommended for romantic walks by the sea. This scent is unique, I cannot think of substitutes. It is a love of a scent.

I love Nocturnes. It is bright and soft at the same time, cheerful without being loud. The sillage is very subtle, like a faint scent of orange blossoms. In my experience, this perfume is extraordinary when exposed to tobacco smoke-- somehow, the smoke brightens and heightens the fragrance so that the warm, orange blossom sillage really blooms--really nice for a person who dislikes cigarette smoke. Very elegant for any occasion, inoffensive to even the most allergy prone person I know, and graceful. This is a perfume to experience for a few days in order to take its measure-- a smelling strip alone does not tell the whole story.

I found that aldehydes in Nocturnes really sparkle in cold weather, on a bright sunny freezing winter day it becomes a really sophisticated "french" fragrance, clean, classy and refined, while in warm weather it loses it's character, it's chic. Powdery flower bouquet, lifted by clean aldehydes, sort of "wilts" in warm weather.

Aldehydes make it clean/soapy. Dry down is slightly woody, spicy and soapy. Faint floral note, faintly green, very much like Chanel #5 without the powder and lots of pepper. Not sure where that’s coming from, but pepper is all over this, underneath the nice clean top. It’s odd, and I like it and hate it at the same time

A really nice aldehyde scent! elegant and delightful. Classic!!!

Nocturne is very light and soft, smells like white flower under the sunshine, and it's feminine and decent at same time.

I recommend this one to all those who fear/hate aldehyde fragrance. You must try Nocturne out before making your mind, otherwise you'll miss a truely beautiful experience!

I say so because I used to fear aldehyde myself, they're loud, thick and sometimes makes me sick. But when the first time I meet Nocturne, I change my mind totally.
