My Top Night Time Fragrances

I love perfume. I usually go for very sweet, girly fragrances however over the last few years I have gained a number of fragrances which are slightly heavier, slightly sexier and more night time appropriate. I thought I would share my top three night time scent with you. Now, please forgive me because I am useless at describing scents. If only there was scratch and sniff blogs!

Estee Lauder Sensuous Noir

This is described as 'a deep heart of Molten Woods, Creme Noir and Patchouli, surrounded by rich florals including Spiced Lily, Purple Rose and other night-blooming florals.' 

To me it is very rich and intense so if you don't like strong perfumes you won't like this. In fact in almost reminds me of a guys scent. It is very sexy and so if perfect for nights out. It also lasts very very well. I can still smell this perfume the day after I wear it. 

I love the deep purple bottle and actually got the Estee Lauder Sensuous Nude (the day time lighter version) for my Christmas.

 Armani Idole d'Amani

This is described as having 'top notes of Sicilian clementine, juicy pear, ginger, davana. middle notes of saffron absolute, Egyptian jasmine, Turkish delight rose. Base notes include vetiver & patchouli'. This is slightly lighter and fruitier but is still stronger than normal scents. 

There is something really unique about this scent and is very similar to a few of the Armani Prive scents but is a third of the price! As you can see from the picture I have worked my way through this one.

YSL Belle d'Opium

This is described as 'Casablanca Lily blends with spicy Incense and mysterious overtones of a Nargileh accord'. I would say this is sort of a blend between the first two fragrances and is the newest addition to my perfume collection. Again this is intense, every so slightly masculine and very night time appropriate. It also last well.  

If I had to pick a favourite I think I would choose the Estee Lauder Sensuous Noir. I first bought this after hearing Tanya Burr rave about it.

As of these scents are rich, warm and intense. I love wearing these scents of I am going on a night out, out for dinner or on when you want to feel a bit more grown up and sexy. These scents are often compared to other scents such as Thierry Mugler's Alien and Dior's Pure Poison however I have prefer my ones as they are slightly sweeter and not has over powering.

What is your favourite night time fragrance?

  1. I too love sensuous noir and believe d'opium, so will have to try the armani one too. I haven't heard of it before. D&G pour femme and chanel sensuelle allure are both fantastic and very similar to the EL & ysl ones you've mentioned, so worth a sniff when you're next after a fragrance!
