E. Coudray Nohiba (2009): An Invitation to a Voyage to the Orient {New Perfume}

E. Coudray, one of the oldest perfumeries in Paris, established ca. 1822, is releasing a new perfume called Nohiba inspired by the Orient and the 1001 Nights.

The fragrance is said to open on notes of lemon, bergamot, coriander and to develop a heart of rose-ylang, jasmine, and carnation. The base rests on notes of patchouli, sandalwood, cedar and white musk.

Nohiba, nom évocateur pour un voyage aux parfums lointains et aux couleurs chaudes et douces des terres mystérieuses de l'Orient, ou seul le plaisir des sens existe.

"Nohiba, an evocative name to travel to the distant perfumes and warm and soft colors of the mysterious lands of the Orient, where only the pleasure of the senses exists."

  1. i was a big fan of 1001 night when i was little, i must have read a dozen of times :) it is exciting to see this wonderful book being interpreted into perfume. i wish there were more perfumes based on our favorite books!

  2. This scent was actually first released in 1922 under the name Tulipe Noire, which it was still sold as through the late 80's early 90's. The name was then changed to Nohiba, for some reason. The scent was then discontinued and now it is being brought back, thank heavens.
    I own the Tulipe Noire bottle and hopefully it will still be the same glorious scent. This is a scent which is very reminiscent of the Jazz era.


    • That's great to know, thanks.

      Love perfumes that evoke the Jazz era, especially if it could fit in a novel by Fitzgerald.
