Une Nuit monade perfume journey 

The Story of Une Nuit Nomade

In 2013, the paths of two avid explorers, Alexandra and Philippe, converged to birth "Une Nuit Nomade." To them, the essence of travel was more than just physical movement—it was a sensory expedition. Their vision was to craft fragrances that, with a mere spritz, could whisk one away to enchanting corners of the world. Drawing inspiration from dreamy locales and tales of wanderlust, their concoctions epitomize the spirit of adventure, a zest for life, and a longing for self-expression that treads off the beaten path.

Jardins de Misfah: An Olfactory Journey to Oman's Hidden Oasis 

Imagine being transported to a secret garden in Oman, where every step you take is accompanied by the soft melody of chirping birds and the gentle hum of water flowing gracefully from terrace to terrace. This is the magic encapsulated within the fragrance Jardins de Misfah. Inspired by the village of Misfah Al Abreyeen, a marvel in arid Arabia, this scent paints an aromatic portrait of the lush alleys, vibrant doors, and the ingenious Afalaj irrigation system—a testament to man's ingenuity in turning the relentless cycle of water in this land into an art.


Amidst the sun-scorched mountains, verdant groves of pomegranate, peach, fig, and apricot trees thrive, surrounded by palms heavy with dates as far as the eye can see. The fragrance, with its notes of fig milk, rose, and sandalwood, not only mirrors the mystery and richness of this oasis but also transports its wearer to its heart with every spritz. The harmony of fragrances is such that the fresh whispers of floral petals meld seamlessly with a rich blend of creamy dates, honey, and sweet water. Its shadowy femininity is so entrancing that even a man might find solace under its aromatic canopy. For connoisseurs, Jardins de Misfah is more than just a seductive allure; it is a delectable olfactory indulgence. 

Embrace the Free Spirit: Introducing Bohemian Soul

In 1966, the documentary 'The Endless Summer' chronicled the journey of two American surfers in pursuit of the perfect wave, pushing time zones further to ensure an everlasting summer. This hunt for vast beaches, frequented by those of free spirit, continues to this day, giving rise to the Gypset lifestyle – a blend of Gypsy and Jet Setter. It's this very ethos that turned Montauk into a coveted pitstop, embodying the yearning to be secluded from the world where raw nature intertwines with eco-luxury. It’s a realm where one meditates, breathes deeply, and indulges in acute sensations.


'Bohemian Soul' elegantly and contemporarily captures this beach journey. Starting with an invigorating burst of vermouth and absinthe with a cool hint of frankincense – reminiscent of a gentle breeze rising over the ocean – the scent transitions to notes of iris and guaiac wood. Eventually, a milky sandalwood whirlwind combined with delicate musks gently lays you upon the warm sands. Embodying freedom, artistry, and self-expression, 'Bohemian Soul' with its traces of patchouli, tea, and amber, is the ideal fragrance for those moments when you wish to unleash the inner bohemian in you – be it on a serene nature trail, a yoga sanctuary, or an inspired day out.

Legacy of the Omani Dagger: Ambre Khandjar

In the heart of Muscat, the capital of the Sultanate of Oman, and nestled within the oldest city in the Middle East, lies the renowned Muttrah souq. Illuminated by scattered light that hints at hidden treasures and mysteries, this marketplace offers visitors a chance to purchase the legendary Khandjar. This J-shaped dagger stands as a testament to Oman's rich heritage, a craft passed down through generations. Originally worn by warriors, the Khandjar now adorns the attire of those attending special events. While some bear intricately carved wooden handles, the most exquisite are embellished with silver, often depicting the sun's journey across the sky. It serves as both a talisman of luck and a protector against malevolent forces.


Capturing the essence of this tradition, our fragrance Ambre Khandjar delivers a potent oriental amber profile, complemented by contemporary undertones of sun-kissed leather and vanilla. It is timeless, evoking warmth and a deep-rooted allure. Immerse yourself in the aroma of sun-tanned skin contrasted with the cool touch of metal.

Sun-Kissed Sands: The Allure of Sugar Leather

In the vastness of the desert, our nomadic journey continues, silent and relentless. Guided by the steady gait of our camels, we're lured into a trance-like state by their rhythmic strides. The sun, high and unyielding, heats the saddles, releasing a sweet, delicate aroma of sun-warmed leather. As we draw closer to Al Khaluf, the scene transforms into an almost otherworldly vista. The grains beneath our feet take on a blinding white hue, resembling hills of sugar rather than desert dunes.


Amidst these pristine sugar dunes, we feel remarkably small, almost lost. Sugar Leather captures this essence: a piece of leather draped in fine white sand, sun-kissed to perfection. It's a fragrance that is bold yet refined, indulgent, and tantalizingly spicy.

Whispers of Spring: The Floral Romance of Johannesburg

In the gentle embrace of spring, Johannesburg is transformed. The Jacaranda trees blanket the city with their radiant mauve blooms, reigning supreme throughout the season. Their bell-shaped blossoms dance to the rhythm of the wind, releasing a captivating scent that is nothing short of a love song. The eager acacias respond to this aromatic serenade with hearts aflutter and blushing boughs. Love at First Sight captures the spontaneous romance of these floral fragrances as they intertwine. It's a dance of the fresh allure of jacaranda merging harmoniously with the sweet embrace of acacia.
