Sherrer Parfums have relaunched a perfume from their catalogue initially introduced in 1994 called Jean-Louis Scherrer Nuits Indiennes (Indian Nights). It is described as a floral oriental chypre...
While it had been discontinued it remained popular with many who often expressed their wish to see it come back.
The house of Scherrer was closed down in 2009 but by December 2010 perfumes were in production again.
The original composition was signed by perfumer Nathalie Feisthauer, now at Symrise. The description puts emphasis on the best times of the day and year to wear it, taking the commercial risk to not make it appear to be ready to ride on all seasonal terrains.
You can court success by appearing specialized or, au contraire, appearing to be immensely versatile. This is an interesting approach in this moody climate.
"A perfume of the evening and for winter. The perfect companion for the Scherrer woman for the evening and beyond the evening...Nuits Indiennes is an invitation to experience the beguiling charms of the Orient paired with the unique elegance of Scherrer."
The eau de toilette opens on mandarin, citron, bergamot and ylang-ylang seguing into a heart of jasmine, rose and violet before hitting Oriental notes of vanilla, sandalwood and patchouli.
