Planning on dancing the night away with your best girlfriends or dipping out to have a secret moonlight rendezvous with that special someone?
If you’re in the market for an evening fragrance that’ll give you the kind of mysterious allure that has people talking even after you’ve left the room – then you’ve come to the right place.
In our opinion, there’s nothing quite like a scintillating and sexy olfactory to get an evening dedicated to debauchery started.
These five carefully selected scents transform you into a queen of the night – simply spritz for instant sex appeal. You’re welcome.
Sisley Izia La Nuit
A dedicated ode to the night, this romantic floral fragrance pays homage to a rare and mysterious bloom sourced from Isabelle d'Ornano's garden. The mysterious rose flowers bloom once a year and only for a short time, delivering a sensually intense scent. The warm notes of vanilla and amber only deepen the hedonistic experience, while fresh notes of black currant and mandarin add a sweet touch of fruit nectar to the olfactory blend.
D.S. & DURGA Amber Kiso EDP
Inspired by the sacred Japanese rituals held in the holy Kiso Forest, this perfume wraps the wearer in an embrace of incendiary notes of aromatic incense and patchouli. The scent of leather, iris and maple add a sweetly intense warmth that comforts the senses, while treemoss and Japanese cedar instill a grounding woodiness to the evergreen bouquet. Practically made for a bit of moonlit magic.
Penhaligon's Terrible Teddy EDP
A full-bodied masculine scent, this intoxicating oriental fragrance is a slow, sensual seduction from start to finish, with notes of incense, amber, smoke and leather. Adorn the body with an ephemeral cloud of this hypnotic and richly-spiced scent – the ultimate investment for the quintessential provocateur.
BDK Nuit De Sable EDP
This unexpected fragrance marries notes of rose absolute and hot sand for a strikingly metallised take on a floral scent. Sandalwood, tonka bean and musk create an epicurean allure that transports the wearer to the moonlit shores of a secluded beach. Striking a balance between bitter and sweet, this genderless scent is the perfect addition to any salt-water soaked body.
Elizabeth Arden 5th Avenue EDP
The kind of fragrance that can comfortably transition between day and night, this fresh and modern floral scent draws inspiration from the fashion-forward energy of the famous New York destination that is 5th Avenue. Exotic notes of citrus, musk and tuberose tantalise the senses, while heady blooms of jasmine, ylang ylang and magnolia lighten the spicy perfumed blend. Sophistication that’ll pair well with your office ensemble AND your after-work heels.
