Other Chartreuse Liqueurs

A relative just returned from alpine France and brought me two interesting bottles:
Genepi des Peres Chartreux
Liqueur Eau de Noix (aperitif des peres Chartreux).

Both bear the Chartreux "seal" design familiar from the standard Green and Yellow Chartreux.

My questions:
I already know genepi (altho' not the Peres Chartreux bottling) and enjoy it. Are there mixed drink recipes that use it? I usually just drink it neat as a digestif, but thought it might make an interesting cocktail -- if someone with more experience that I have could suggest a direction.

I have never tasted the Liqueur Eau de Noix. Is this similar to Italian Nocino? I have not yet broken open the bottle, so I don't really have a point of comparison, and I would love to have some background.

Many thanks to so many knowledgable posters in these boards whose information I frequently depend upon.
