Just received a sample of this (thank you, Norgirl!). Not sure if it's edt or edp, but I love it!
First few seconds: a spicyness similar to Nohiba and vintage Opium edt.
Then I was sure I smelled nutmeg, like in vintage Organza.
But after that, the cloves and the rose began to glow, indeed very similar to Coco edt (with maybe just a tiny bit of honey).
Imagine all those lovely scents in one perfume! I have to get a full bottle of this!

Just in case anyone is still interested in 8e Jour, I would like to mention that, imo, there is a world of difference between EdT and EdP here. I have recently found some EdP to compare and have noticed a big difference.

The EdT, while pretty, is noticeably weak, and certainly doesn't have the richness or staying power of the EdP.

So, whether or not 8e is a credible substitute for Indecense, I think you need to try the EdP to give the comparison a fair shot. And anyway in general I consider the EdP to be far superior, if only because of the potency issue. After all, who wants a weak apologetic oriental? The notes have been extensively documented in the reviews below, and I agree - it's a lovely oriental with a strong and beautiful cinnamon note.

This was my favorite perfume growing up, and I couldn't wait to be old enough to wear it. I stole my mother's bottle when I left home. This is so sultry and exotic. I do notice a resemblance to Coco, but a little heavier, and headier. Coco's little sister in black stockings. If you can find a bottle, buy it.

A wonderful rich fragrance that says "this is one rich woman". Take that as monetary or in a life-sense, but it definitely does not smell cheap. I hate to even use that word in a review of this masterpiece of the fragrant arts. It is a warm scent, lovely in complexity, nothing stands out, but all is enticing, womanly and perfect. My son, who is 32, sat next to me at church and after the service was over asked me what scent I was wearing. Before I answered he said, "Because THAT is really, really a great perfume. It smells SO good!" I told him he had a good nose, because I feel it is one of the best in the world.
I own the perfume and the eau de toilette. The top notes are gone within 20 minutes and the rich depth comes out then with an almost musky finish, probably 5 to 6 hours later. Beautiful fragrance!

freddinos,
I see we agree wholeheartedly on this Indecence issue.

I was wearing regular ORGANZA yesterday (as opposed to ORGANZA INDECENCE) and far along in the drydown, when the florals really begin to assert themselves, I was reminded of 8eme Jour. So that got me wondering, maybe people are mentioning ORGANZA INDECENCE when what they really mean is ORGANZA?

I allow for differences in everyone's experience with a given frag, but this one I had to comment on because the comparisons to INDECENCE are SO far off base IMO.

Aside from the fact the only notes they share are cinnamon and vanilla, 8eme Jour is a sharp, floral perfume, whereas Indecence is mostly about vanilla and has round edges, very smooth. I would never recommend 8eme jour to someone looking for vanilla. That's not what it's all about.

Apologies in advance to the fans, as this is a negative review: I received this blind in a swap, basically because some of the reviews mentioned resemblance to Organza Indecence. Well, it couldn't be more different! Do not spend your money thinking you found an alternative for the amazing Organza Indecence, as 8e Jour is a womewhat old fashioned -in a 90s way- a tad suffocating floral. I could not detect the cinnamon, only a very familiar scent from my high school years, when many of us girls wore cheap-ish perfumes from Yves Rocher, The Body Shop and Avon. I reached the conclusion that indeed a friend was wearing this back in the days! All in all I didn not like 8e Jour, found it quite uninspiring and, most importantly, not at all similar to my beloved Indecence. Sad:(

This is a strong, spicy, in-your-face floriental, with very strong floral notes, resin and cinammon, and it's great, but I am baffled by the comparisons to Organza Indecence, which reminds me NOT ONE BIT of 8eme Jour. Indecence is a big fat vanilla bomb, where vanilla overshadows all the other notes completely, whereas 8eme Jour is nothing of the sort. I would hate for someone to blind-buy this hoping for an Indencence substitute. It isn't.

Action, Thanks to your reviews, I now have 8e Jour and I like it very much. Yes it's gourmand, very softly touched with cinnamon, and MOST similar to Organza Indecence in strength and character. Comparatively, 8e Jour seems a bit more "buttery" smooth and more gourmand than Organza Indecence. I don't find it much like Opium or CoCo, since both of those are stronger and more spicy on my skin, and both project MUCH more strongly.
8e Jour is smooth, soft, rich, more honey sweet than floral on me. It's gentle, unique, tasty, and lasting.
Thank you ALL for your reviews, and especially Action, for bringing this beautiful vintage fragrance to our attention and spiking interest in it.

I first smelled this in a newly opened YR shop in Belarus, in the mid-90s. I was a wide-eyed freshman (freshlady? do they say that?:) ) and was sooo in a hurry to grow up! And at a first sniff I knew: this is what I would want to smell like being a grownup woman leading an intense mysterious life! :) This scent is somewhat of a double nature: when u spritz it on a paper, or even on the skin, or just sniff it from the bottle - it comes across as very spicey - black and white pepper, nothing red in there!-, then there's a certain sandiness ( a bit like in Dior's DUNE ), and even bitterness, all of that resting on a deep dark velvety base: colourwise the bottle represents all of that perfectly. But on me, halfway into the drydown, it bursts with a very intense brown sugar splash and becomes from the dark mysterios evening fragrance into quite a hot peppery-sugary I-don't-know-when-to wear-this thing! I must say, since I have oily and moist skin, all sweet notes, even when barely there, thrive on that and become very prominent ( I have no idea what would happen if I tried the new Lancome's La vie est belle! - I am keeping an obligatory safety distance to the mall stand with that one! ). So as much as I liked the idea of it, my chemistry takes away the edge off this scent. Nevertheless, I got a bucketload of compliments on my 1st day wearing it, so perhaps it's the matter of taste or even expectations. Had a 30 ML bottle and was glad t get to the end of it, because the amount of heat, spice and sugar were suffocating me as soon as I would stop moving. Really torn apart about this one, but will most likely repurchase for the mere fear of never getting a whiff of it again! Hard to believe YR were once capable of creating interesting complex scents: very disappointed with the current soooo boring "modern scent" selection they keep expanding, to my greatest amazement...

Oh my! This is beautiful! I'm currently on the hunt for cinnamon perfumes. I recently bought some Organza Indecence after falling in love with it, and since it is discontinued and expensive, I'm looking for something similar. While the underlying base scent on this is very similar to OI, this one has the most beautiful floral notes floating on top which to me, sets this apart from OI. The cinnamon is not predominant but does exist. This is not an OI replacement. The florals are too strong. But that is not a detractor for me. In fact, the florals just add to the mystique and romance of this. So far, the florals are top and heart. I'm wondering if the base is where this transforms, finally, into OI's sister (?)

I'm a very picky floral person, and I'm very surprised at my immediate love for this fragrance with its striking florals. I must have smelled this before on someone, because the scent out of the bottle was very familiar to me. This is powerful. It projects. I don't know if it is the iris, ylang ylang or jasmine I detect. (Jasmine seems to have different personalities depending on what perfume I smell it in, so I just can't say.) This has a powdery aspect and from what I understand, this is probably the iris. Very nice! I do detect the rose, but it is not the dominate floral to my nose. While I was worried about the comparisons to Opium due to Opium's heavy soapy quality, I can testify here and now that there is no soapy. And I would venture to say that this is what I was hoping Opium would smell like. The florals predominate though, and so for me, the "incense" and "spice" that others are mentioning do not present themselves to me.

Props to Action for being so encouraging and insistently supportive of this perfume. I have seen so many of your reviews on this site and think you have great taste. It was your influence here that persuaded me to try a mini. Less than 5 minutes into sampling the mini, I popped for a 2.0 oz vintage bottle on eBay and can't wait to possess it.

I LOVE this Fragrance. I still have almost an entire bottle. And Yves Rocher's Voile D'Ambre is very close to 8e Jour, just so people know!

This was one of those YR originals that got compliments every single time I wore it, and made me feel absolutely beautiful and confident. A great winter and special evening fragrance, it is unique and deserved to continue on as a perennial classic. Like all earlier YR scents it was non-irritating and had that wonderful, authentic tone that can only be achieved by using high quality natural essences. If YR can't or won't reproduce some of these incredible formulas, they should sell them as a set to someone who can.

This is one of my most precious perfume in my collection and it not a perfume for delicate pallets. It's rich, strong, have character and I love it uniqueness. Some may complain off it lac of sweetness but frankly how many sweet perfume do we need.

Maybe I got a bad bottle on ebay. It was supposed to be vintage....smelled uh, not good. To my nose it was very musty. Not at all like Coco or Opium. Again, maybe a bad bottle. Another poster here said it was like "ancient incense" - yes, I agree, but I don't want to smell like ancient incense!

Update: after the drydown, it gets a bit more mellow, sweeter and pleasant, similar to Opium or Obsession...but sorry, still not for me.

Cinnamon appeals to me on a fresh sugared doughnut or a tea-cake but not in a perfume as it turns out.

In the eighties I loved KL by Lagerfeld and Coco by Chanel. This fragrance I think is very similar and I like it very much. I owned a full size bottle of it and used it all up. (that doesn't happen often I don't often finish bottles even though I love the fragrance) I still own some mini's with this perfume.

You are right Amarilia about the resemblance with Coco and Opium. The most similar to my nose is Organza Indecence! You should test it with that one in mind!

I am so happy to posess this one again, found a brandnew mint bottle online!!!
Action, you are so right, this has a certain resemblance to Organza Indecence, wich is a new favorite of mine. They are definately from the same family!
This beautiful, unique fragrance is unfortunately so rare...This would be a staple in my wardrobe!!! Have used it as a teenager...brings back so many happy memories...
The myrrhe, incence and cinnamon bring the mystery to life in this scent!
I can easily detect the iris, rose, ylang ylang, all the spicy notes...except the honey note is very far away for me now...
Feel very lucky if you have it!!!

This week I discovered some great similarities between this perfume and Organza Indecence. The cinnamon in both perfumes is so nicely combined with a very sweet note that they both become gourmand! So this is a category like a gourmand version of Opium and that would be something like Organza Indecence.

I had totally forgotten this heady, spicy oriental of Yves Rocher. I got it as a Xmas present, when I was propably 13. I remember not liking it on my skin, but adored the shower gel and lotion. The smell was incredible, like freshly baked gingerbread, vanilla sticks,insence and warming spicy cinnamon candle burning on a cold, snowy Christmas Eve. Very unique, strong and confident scent! I miss that smell now.
EDIT : Thank you Action for letting me have this amazing, erotic and unique scent in my collection again. I'm saving it for upcoming Christmases only :)
I also noticed now that 8e Jour reminds me a bit of Coco Chanel and Opium.
