Caron Nuit de Noel was created in 1922 by Ernest Daltroff, the creative genius behind the House of Caron. His lover, Felicie Vanpouille, was the inspiration for the scent. She loved all things Christmas Eve, the smells not just a small part of that. Don't expect big smells of spices and eggnog and cinnamon out of this. The spices are there, but covered by the soft night before Christmas, woods that put out their scent through a hush of falling snow and a crackling fire, warmed by the oakmoss and floral notes. It is a deeply introspective and meditative scent, but the meditation is on quiet joy, when your life is full and rich with love.
This is the vintage EDT, eau de toilette, and the vintage Nuit de Noel is the most true to the original scent, though the current version has lost little in reformulations.
