What is the Nocturne font?
The font is based on an alphabet from a mid1920s art deco book. The original seemed to have tapering strokes but it was too small to be sure; I made all strokes parallel & orthogonal and slightly modified the original in a number of other ways to bring it into the 21st Century. The designers of the original were Paul Carlyle and Guy Oring.
Nocturne has all the elegance of the Deco fonts of the 1930s. It recalls the romantic, sophisticated Zeitgeist of the early 20th century, that nostalgic time “between the wars”.
Nocturne comes in two styles: More…
Nocturne Regular, which uses the Art Deco convention of small x height, and long ascenders. This style is perfect for headers, posters, labels etc.
Nocturne Book, which, with its higher x height and slightly wider characters, is extremely legible and suitable for small size text.

You know the fonts on this site are premium, right? Nocturne is not a free font.
If you want to use Nocturne then I suggest just paying for it and downloading Nocturne HERE. You can find some other great options here on GFONTS.com as well that will save you time looking around all over the web.
It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Nocturne are that you get the license, and if you're caught using it illegally there could be some potential legal implications with the publisher of this particular typeface.
Furthermore, when searching "free downloads" on Google, most websites will say they have them but these types of offers usually come at a cost - either something like high-pressure sales tactics or getting tricked into downloading malware onto your computer by malicious third parties who want access to all your personal information!
It's just too risky going about finding free fonts online.
