To me this smells similar to "Shaina" by Atelier Delteil, from the 70's or 80's I think. I should say "Shaina" smells like "Vol de Nuit" because "Shaina" was made much later.
They are both woody orientals, one (Shaina--basenotes labdanum and fir resin...smells powdery resinous similar to Vol de Nuit) is a bit more modernized but still has a powerful, classical feel. I own "Vol de Nuit" in the extrait version and it's one of my prize possessions. I used up an edt 93 ml bottle in about six months. I could not keep my hands / nose off it. I have about 20 ml extrait left, a version from about 7 years ago, give or take. The extrait is for special occasions, or really happy moments, I am looking to buy another edt soon. I love spraying perfume for application, even with a pure perfume -- the effect feels the most complete. Like dabbing is for contemplation, spraying is for immersion. I found out about "Shaina" after reading about Atelier Delteil in Luca Turin's original 1994 Parfums: Le Guide and then finding a reference on his blog. I wish Fragrantica would also add Nicky Verfaillie Parfums ("Grain de Sable", "Grain de Folie" and "Grain de Passion") from the late 70's early 80's...such an interesting period in perfume history! Nicky Verfaillie parfums are also mentioned in the preface to the 1994 Le Guide. My French is rudimentary but I could decipher these recommendations...Oh, to be able to write reviews with such confidence! To experience smell like that. Perfume is amazingly substantial for such an ephemeral product.
Among the outside perfumers to compose perfumes for the firm after 1994 was Mathilde Laurent , who worked for Guerlain at the end of the 1990s and in the early 2000s. She composed Aqua Allegorica Pamplelune (1999) and Shalimar Light (2003, reattributed to Jean-Paul Guerlain and relaunched in 2004 following reformulation). Maurice Roucel , a perfumer of Symrise , composed L'Instant de Guerlain (2004) and Insolence (2006). As the niece of Jean-Jacques Guerlain, some thought Patricia de Nicolaï would have been a candidate for the position of Guerlain's in-house perfumer,  though the presence of a glass ceiling in the company prevented her selection for position.
