Similar to my coveted Les Nuits d'Hadrien, Nuit Etoilée falls into the previously mentioned "always appropriate" category. Rather than making a fragrance announcement as the wearer enters a room, this scent is much more private and personal. I am not certain, in fact, if it provides any sillage. That fact does not much matter when the divine juice truly possesses aroma-therapeutic qualities.
The only downfall to Nuit Etoilée, and I really hesitate to point this out since I so clearly adore this scent, is that on my skin longevity is not its strong suit. Perhaps if I slathered on unscented moisturizer first, it would linger a few more hours. Nonetheless, I am happy to bring with me a smaller, decanted atomizer and spritz myself repeatedly throughout the day. Well worth the extra effort? Emphatically, "Yes!"
The packaging is equally stunning, produced in icy blue glass which changes color depending on lighting. Camille Goutal and Isabelle Doyen have really "hit it out of the park" with this creation and I strongly recommend it for day or night for anyone liking comforting woodsy, musky scents.
