Isabey Fleur Nocturne ~ new perfume

Isabey Fleur Nocturne advertIsabey Fleur Nocturne perfume bottle

Isabey has launched Fleur Nocturne, a modern version of a 1925 Isabey fragrance called Bleu de Chine:

The fragrance, inspired by a world of crystal and amethyst, was entrusted to Jean Jacques who envisioned an exceptionally rich floral bouquet with fruity white flowers. The top note consisting of mandarin, mixed with apricot blossoms and white peach instantly gives you the safe feeling that you are holding in your hands a perfume of exceptional, noble and valuable ingredients. The fragrance then plunges into a heart of jasmine, Gardenia and Magnolia, with a quality which is very rarely found today. The fond leaves a strong wake of extraordinary elegance with a sunny chord of vanilla and patchouli.

Isabey Fleur Nocturne is available at First in Fragrance in Germany, 129€ for 50 ml Eau de Parfum. (via first-in-fragrance, images via Panouge at Facebook)

    Wow – I don’t know if I’d like the juice or not, but that bottle is stunning. And I’m not a bottle-fiend, either (yet).

    • Robin says:

      Ditto. I want one.

  2. LaMaroc says:

    I’m with you, CynthiaW. The juice is iffy but that bottle is too precious. And I *am* a bottle-fiend! Beware of this habit. It makes fragrance purchasing decisions even more complicated!

    • Robin says:

      I do try to beware, but boy is this one tempting.

    • CynthiaW says:

      lol – I definitely am beware – a good half of my perfume acquisitions are in plain glass atomizers since they’re decants.

  3. boojum says:

    Agree, the bottle is gorgeous…and as that’s the only nice thing I can say, I’ll stop there. :D

  4. Absolute Scentualist says:

    They had me at white peach, apricot blossom, magnolia, gardenia, jasmine, vanilla and patch. *swoon* I soooo want to try this one! It sounds perfectly gorgeous and like something I’d definitely wear.

    • Robin says:

      Sounds like you need one!

  5. parfumliefhebber says:

    No, no, no, no peach. But the bottle is cute.

    • Robin says:

      I like peach sometimes…we’ll see.

  6. Joe says:

    Could be interesting, actually. Like the bottle, but the cap looks cheap (as you say, don’t they always?).

    R, I noticed you didn’t have any info on Isabey on your Houses site; I dug up the following (Google translated page):

  7. Dolly says:

    I’d take the bottle and dump the juice out. Oy! Apricot, peach, jasmine, gardenia and magnolia? Not for me.

    • Robin says:

      Hard to tell if I’ll like it w/o smelling it…could be nice.

    • boojum says:

      I think the juice could go either way. It was the ad copy I was choking all over. :D

  8. Tama says:

    Mmmmm – I think this sounds nice! And, yes, that bottle! Wow. I tried some MDCI Peche Cardinale and definitely picked up some peach and liked it, so I’m not scared.

    • Robin says:

      Peach is not always a bad thing — Mitsouko, for instance.

  9. thenoseknows says:

    SOUNDS UTTERLY DESIRABLE!!!!!!!! How BEAUTIFUL those notes sound (am a TOTAL SUCKER for anything with Peach and Vanilla In it! AND Gardenia..??? OH ME OH MY!!!!!) Hope there will be a stateside release, even if in limited quantities! This sounds Deliriously Delicious!

    • Robin says:

      Will be surprised if it doesn’t get here, since Isabey Gardenia does have US distribution.

  10. annemarie says:

    I love blue as a colour in fragrance marketing. You don’t see it too often … the old Eau de Givenchy … Rive Gauche …

    • Robin says:

      Me too! I wish they had not repackaged the Eau de Givenchy.

    I have a question

    Is Isabey Fleur Nocturne a warm or cool perfume?
