A little black dress, natural make-up, up-do and neat black pumps – a sophisticated work outfit. When the sun goes down, you’re changing those black pumps for more of a statement heel. You’re letting down the up-do and applying red lips. Finally, adding some drama to your make-up. It’s the classic day-to-night outfit switch.
Evening perfume is exactly the same concept.
Evening perfume is generally ‘heavier’. The notes are usually much bolder, richer, stronger and spicier. Alternatively, day perfumes are more light, floral and fresh.
Here are some evening perfumes we suggest;
Formal Weddings: 4 Her
This perfume has base notes of vanilla, amber, and vetiver – centered by musk. 4 Her starts out as quite assertive. Eventually mysteriously evolving into a tame and gentle evening perfume.
It’s time to let your hair down for girl’s night out. Scandalous is a seriously decadent, free-spirited evening perfume. This gourmand chypre scent has deliciously sweet top notes of citrus, smothered in honey and caramel. To add to that, the heart is full of beautiful white florals, which give the perfume a bit lightness. Then in the dry down, a sweet liquorice is revealed. Finally, patchouli, tonka and sandalwood ground this opulent perfume.
Lady Lucky is beyond fitting for date night’s evening perfume. The rose, raspberry and jasmine notes offer a subtle and fresh touch of sensuality. Following them are the voluptuous notes of sandalwood and cedar to lure in depth. Ultimately it’s slightly surprising and slightly comforting. The notes of honey add the right amount of ‘lady’, and the right amount of ‘luck’ to this bestselling perfume.
Black Tie Event: Hynote
Hynote is the kind of evening perfume that leaves you captivated. Top notes of apricot, plum and coconut grab your attention. Middle notes of tuberose, jasmine, lily-of the-valley and rose pique curiosity and base notes of almond vanilla and musk calmly conclude your hypnosis.
Casual night out: Gypsy
This floral chypre embodies freedom and strength, with notes of plum, freesia and oak moss. More earthy than floral, Gypsy, as an evening perfume, combines casual and natural with an interesting twist of personality – perfect for the casual night out.
