The Different Company Une Nuit Magnetique : New Perfume

French niche brand The Different Company is releasing Une Nuit Magnétique,  a perfume created by Christine Nagel (now the in-house perfumer at Hermès). “I have created this perfume as a magnet that physically attracts. The materials I have chosen create contrast and affinity,” says Nagel in the press release. The fragrance is described as warm, bewitching and sensual.


“This sensual sillage opens with the freshness of Ginger and mischievous Blueberry, to better let the carnal flowers appear (Jasmine, Rose and Tuberose), sustained by a luxurious amber and woody base.”

Une Nuit Magnétique Eau de Parfum (16% concentration) includes notes of ginger, blueberry, bergamot, jasmine from Egypt, Turkish rose, tuberose, prune, amber, woods, benzoin, patchouli, and musk.

Available at and its retailers worldwide. 30ml, 50 ml (98€), 90 ml (153€, refillable) and Discovery kit 3 x10 ml. Via press release.



  • sara: notes sounds very interesting. jasmin de nuit is the last tdc i bought. May 23, 2014 at 9:14am Reply

    • Victoria: I like that spicy jasmine too, except that the drydown turns too sweet on me. May 23, 2014 at 9:51am Reply

  • Sandy S: Have not yet tried any different company products but the bewitching part sounds interesting. May 23, 2014 at 9:23am Reply

    • Victoria: Curious to see what they mean by it! May 23, 2014 at 9:51am Reply

  • Austenfan: I still love their packaging but the most recent one of theirs I tried was Sublime Balkiss and Oriental Lounge. I think my favourite is still the wonderful Divine Bergamote.

    • Victoria: What did you think of Sublime Balkiss and Oriental Lounge?

      Like you, I prefer their Bergamote to everything else. Not sure why they changed the name from Divine Bergamote to simply Bergamote, because the name suited it perfectly. It’s really heavenly.

      Thank you! May 23, 2014 at 10:29am Reply

      • Austenfan: It’s been a while. I think I liked Sublime Balkiss and found O.L. interesting. I got two mini bottles of SB and OL when I ordered Divine Bergamote and Bois d’Iris years ago from TDC directly. Very generous I thought. I am so glad I got the estagnons of those two as they do well with a bit of overspraying.

        Wasn’t it changed because of Divine? Although that doesn’t make sense as Divine was founded in the late eighties and DB was put on the market in 2003. I prefer the original name too. May 23, 2014 at 11:25am Reply

        • Victoria: I don’t really know why it was changed, but I saw the perfume on the TDC website and noticed the new name. Makes no sense to me either, especially since I can think of a couple of other perfumes with Divine in the name, like Mauboussin Emotion Divine or Oriflame Divine Sensual.

          I need to try the other two again. 🙂 May 23, 2014 at 4:33pm Reply

      • Patricia: Divine Bergamote is my favorite, too. Pity it isn’t longer lasting. May 25, 2014 at 2:18pm Reply

        • Victoria: Yes, that initial burst is so great, and it’s something I want to smell for much longer than it lasts. May 25, 2014 at 3:32pm Reply

  • Lauren B: That blueberry note sounds intriguing. Most of the berry-ish perfumes are tweener type fruity florals. I’m always on the lookout for something a little different.

    On an unrelated note, I’m taking the CPC exam tomorrow. It’s the certifications test for medical coders, and I am crazy stressed about it! I was wondering if any of y’all have a perfume that makes you feel smarter. Or if anyone has a perfume that you wear for luck. I need both at this point! May 23, 2014 at 11:39am Reply

    • Austenfan: Any chypre, or chypre’ish perfume makes me feel smarter.

      I used Paris YSL during my time at university when having exams. I still find it very soothing.

      I had to look up what cpc was. It’s a system that doesn’t seem to exist in my country. May 23, 2014 at 12:22pm Reply

      • Lauren B: Yeah, I think it’s only for the USA and Canada. And I agree, chypres are very cerebral. Cristalle might be a good choice. May 23, 2014 at 12:47pm Reply

      • Victoria: Can’t agree more on chypres! May 23, 2014 at 4:39pm Reply

    • Nikki: listen to Mozart or Baroque music and wear a citrus perfume is my suggestion, i.e. o de lancome or a vanilla to relax… May 23, 2014 at 1:24pm Reply

    • Victoria: Good luck with your exam, Lauren! I’d say that the best thing is to get enough rest the night before. Take a bath (with some orange blossom water, if you have any; or simply anything nicely scented.) Listen to your favorite music and relaxed a bit. Even if you only have 10 minutes, this will do much to calm your nerves.

      And tomorrow try to start the day well–with good breakfast! This works well for me. Some of my favorite lucky charm perfumes are chypres, orange blossoms or green scents. Chanel No 19 makes me feel as if I can ace anything. And again, good luck! May 23, 2014 at 4:37pm Reply

  • Lauren B: I was actually thinking Chanel No 19! It’s very serious and smart. Thanks, guys! May 23, 2014 at 7:13pm Reply

    • Victoria: I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you and sending lots of good vibes your way! May 24, 2014 at 5:04am Reply

  • Laura: Some of the fragrances of this line come across more like luxury room fragrances. Still, I live Sel de Vetiver and Un Parfum de Charmes et Feuilles. Still, I would try a creation of Christine Nagel …

    Question: would you recommend any fragrances with a strong sage note? I couldn’t find the note on your list. Thanks! May 24, 2014 at 2:10pm Reply

    • Victoria: I don’t like all of the perfumes from the line either, but some are very interesting.

      For sage notes, you might want to try the new Jo Malone, Wood Sage & Sea Salt. Also, L’Artisan Caligna, Serge Lutens Encens et Lavande, and Fig Leaf & Sage by Kiehl`s. Hermes Bel Ami is a bit masculine, but it’s terrific. May 24, 2014 at 3:26pm Reply
