The Story from the brand - "In this garden of the sumptuous Palais Royal, out of sight, the pages of a book are slowly turning. Intrigued, a silhouette advances to start the conversation. It is there, at the end of the afternoon, sitting on a bench in front of a sumptuous bed of roses with a scent mixed with sand, where they meet."
BDK Parfums Nuit de Sable is an EDP, eau de parfum.
Fragrantica - " I find a lot of fragrances with tobacco notes have this ashy quality that can become off putting- like sniffing an ash tray- but this stays warm and for all the world like sticking your nose in a fresh pouch of grandpas best blend. I adore it! I am super sensitive to rose, but the notes in this are married so well that it doesn't overwhelm me- the rose/cardamom/nutmeg combo in this reads as warm, herbal, and sweet. The sandlewood draws some depth into it and gives it a woodiness while the ambroxin/tonka/musk set the baseline in a smooth and comforting finish. One spray and I smell it in my entire bedroom- and I can smell it on my clothing for days. It is a scent I love to cuddle up with."
Fragrantica - "Unique and familiar, something I want to keep sniffing. The sandalwood and rose are background sweeteners. All the notes are well balanced."
Fragrantica: "Nuit De Sable (NdS) is a classically-Arabic spicy rose scent, with a soft feminine touch. Oriental rose, mixes with lightly-woody sandalwood, & rough (sandy?) dry spices, to a give a spicy, rosey, lightly-woody scent. The tonka beans feminize the scent with a touch of sweetness. Sand sounds like a weird note but in NdS you do get a rough, dusty accord"
