I am a fragrance fanatic. Fragrance is the first thing that I always notice in a product. So perfumes and I go a long way. In fact every time my hubby gets me a gift, it surely includes a new perfume.
Few months back when I went to restock my Victoria’s Secret Bombshell (an old favourite), I noticed the beautiful elegant bottle of Night next to it. I thought of giving it a try and ended up gleefully restocking Bombshell together with a new bottle of Night.
Price: $52 for 1.7 fl.oz

My Experience with Victoria’s Secret Night Eau de Parfum:
Packaging: The perfume comes in an elegant glass bottle with a black body and jewelled cap, truly reminiscent of its name – “Night”. It has a kind of drama to it and for some reason I am reminded of the old classic Hollywood movies.
I personally love its sleek design; however, you might have difficulty in knowing how much of the perfume is used up because of the opaque bottle.
The fragrance notes I sense directly from the bottle are woody and floral ones which surprisingly changes when tried on skin. When tried on, the first note to hit me is a heady mix of musk and woody scent which immediately gives way to added citrus and amber notes as the perfume settles, finally fading to a delicious floral scent hours later.It is not a typical sweet, girly perfume and not something a college goer would prefer. It has an alluring rich sophisticated feminine scent which is perfect for evenings and night parties. Since the scent is not too overpowering, I use it as a day perfume too.

The perfume lasts well for about 5-6 hours on me, after which the mild floral base notes linger. On clothes, it lasts till next laundry. The lasting power of fragrances also depends on your skin type and they fade easily on dry skin, hence applying them on moisturized skin is very essential. To make the scent last longer, I apply it right after a shower so that it sinks easily into the pores. I also layer it with a matching scented moisturizer.
Night is not one of those perfumes that get noticed miles away. I wouldn’t call the scent provocative as the product claims; it’s rather a sensual feminine scent for me that exudes grace and confidence.
