The Art Of An Evening Perfume

The Art Of An Evening Perfume

Perfume is the final beauty ritual you perform before heading out to polish your look and enhance your state of mind. So just like you wouldn’t wear that slinky black dress out to lunch, you need a dark, alluring perfume when you want to be your most provocative self.

While a day perfume releases a fresh, floral scent, evening perfumes should be muskier and earthier. Like a dark lipstick, night time scents can make you feel your most seductive.

 

Here are our top three picks for an evening perfume:

 

Chanel Coco Noir

 

Chanel’s addition to their hugely successful Coco collection is this enigmatic scent with oriental notes that give depth and sensuality to its signature white floral scent.

This rich, elegant and captivating aroma is the ideal transition scent from day to night.

?95.00 50ml Brown Thomas

 

 

TOM FORD Black Orchid

 

This Tom Ford perfume is an oldie but a goodie. It’s spicier than the Chanel with sprinklings of dark chocolate and jasmine. It has a slightly zesty endnote, which gives it a sharp, sexy finish.

The beautiful black fluted bottle completes a sophisticated and timeless perfume.

?94.00 50ml Brown Thomas

 

 

NARCISO RODRIDEUZ Narciso

 

Narciso is a alluringly woody fragrance set on a backdrop of white florals. It is the strongest of all three so don’t be put off by its initial strength, as the night wears on it melts into this delicious cedar and amber musk, with hints of rose and gardenia.

?79.00 50ml Debenhams
