Here's what other people are saying about Nuit de Cellophane...
Freaking gorgeous! This scent is a lovely floral, clean and pretty. I just wish it lasted longer. It was gone within an hour.

Nuits de cellophane is an aberration in the Serge Lutens collection. It's accessible and easy to wear, which is not the case for most of its perfumes. Although I agree it smells like a great shampoo, it is not uninteresting and I dare say I quite enjoy it. I have 6 or 7 of his perfumes (my favorites being Santal Majuscule and Five O'clock au gingembre) and this one is by far the most mainstream (apart from the very disappointing Eau de Lutens, which seems to have disappeared). It also has great staying power. Love it, even if it lacks originality.

I agree with others who've said not every scent has to be "different" or "strange" to capture the imagination and delight the senses. I was in Van Cleef & Arpels a month ago and wandered over to the fragrances and sniffed First after many years and remembered how utterly wonderful it is. It's a an explosion of flowers, civet (or what passes now for civet) and sophistication and it's not in the least strange or different. I appreciate that same quality in NdC and if it lasted five mintues on my skin, I'd buy a vat of it.

I adore this perfume. It is perfect! It smells light and pretty. A very soft clean floral! So happy I bought this and will buy this one again. It was everything I wanted and more. Just a beautiful scent.

I'm really confused by this one... I definitely agree that is smells like "Very Hollywood," but would venture to say that there is absolutely nothing noteworthy or exceptional about this flat, high-school smelling fragrance. If you like to smell like Victoria's Secret or the generic department-store fragrance, look no further. However, it is quite disappointing from SL that is known for very unique, distinct fragrances. 2 stars because it still smells decent, but definitely a let-down.

Definitely nice, but nothing I would ever buy. Not at all the type of fragrance I gravitate towards.

A full, brash, sharp floral fragrance. This is almost identical to Michael Kors' Very Hollywood. There are cheaper perfumes that smell similar to this.

This fragrance is easy to wear and smells really good. I don't think anyone could object to it. I fell the person who created it winking at a little joke because it definitely smells like flowers wrapped in cellophane.

On me, this smells like Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific, the shampoo all the cool girls used back when I was in seventh grade. Two stars for nostalgia, but I wouldn't wear it.

Very boring. It smells like a generic department store scent, nice and wearable, but just not something from dramatic and tasteful Lutens.

Subtle is rarely a word one can use when describing an SL fragrance, but in this case it's apt. As with all Serges, there is a dance of notes, with first one taking center stage and then another. But in NdC, it's more minuet than mash pit. On me, this scent opened with something very vegetal, as though I'd wandered into a kitchen where someone was chopping fresh garden produce. Then the florals came through, sweet and misty as though freshly picked in morning dew. A bass note of fruit sounded next as though to provide structure to the delicate blooms. If I were to choose a scent to accompany an Eduoard Manet still life, it might be this scent. Like Manet's work, this scent stands on the edge of impressionism.

Yawn. This is sooo boring. Many better things out there to try.

I like NdeC as well. It is not as forward as some of SL other fragrances, but it is floral, feminine and wears very nicely in the hot weather.

I was expecting to dislike this new Lutens because of the lack of support for its simplicity, airyness and wearability. Not everything has to take 30 minutes to morph into a scent you can love....I really enjoy Cellophane and find it FBW.
By   - from New York on 3/26/2009
Wonderful scent. I get a lightly sweetened jasmine that is soft, smooth and clean. I detect zero soap/dryer sheet accord that people have mentioned. This ethereal scent will wear great in hot weather and not become overwhelming. If you want to like a jamine scent but can't, try this!

Nuit de Cellophane opens on a clean almost soapy note on me, after a while the green note merges and blends into a delicious honeyed fruity floral with a hint of musk This is an unusual Serge Lutens scents but I think for me, it will become one of my favorite summer scents.

I find this a refreshing change from the almost predictable joli -laid strangeness that has been so prevalent in niche fragrances. On my skin this scent opens with a sweet syrup fruity notes, with a heart of an almost narcotic jasmine. Osmanthus makes a cameo appearance and I detect nutmeg, also narcotic. If you MUST have 'odd' in your Serge , its there, in the form of the actual aroma of cellophane (plastic) wrapped around damp flowers. I wish the sillage was better, and that the osmanthus note would linger ,but if you are a fan of un lys you should like this too. it is more 'jour' than 'nuit', but that suits me just fine

This is a very soapy jasmine reminiscent of dryer sheets. Piercing and relentlessly dull, it is a huge disappointment coming from Serge Lutens.
