At the time, I was sure I would never find the right strings, but I read a cool review on the Nuages, so I thought I would give them a try. I am hooked. Somehow, they manage to be both mellow and yet have a beautiful bright sound at the same time. The high strings, while similar to the Martins play clean, and the chords have a warm tone that I have not heard in the other strings. Additionally, I have had them on my guitar a month so far and they still sound great. I have found my strings.
They're also surprisingly pleasant to strum, if you hit them very softly with a light pick. It creates a light percussive sound with a little bit of tone, which I've come to call the Soft Silver Sound.
No idea of how well they age or last yet, but I think I'm onto something !
(P.S. -- I love that microfiber cloth you put in with the first shipment.)
