Above- Nightgown sample with my cute teddy bear. Isn't he darling? I saw him at a craft store and just had to buy him. I want to make him into a bracelet.
I've been wanting to try Nightgown for such a long time, so I finally chose it for my sample with Smoky Mountain Mallow. I know a lot of you like Nightgown, and for good reasons! Let's check out the scent description:
Vanilla, White Chocolate, Tuberose & Tiare Flowers
Shake this perfume gently before use. A sensual and very creamy floral fragrance, Nightgown evokes the image of a gorgeous satin nightie with lace trim. It fits like a second skin and is the perfect attire for lounging and snuggling. This perfume is the representation of the fabric itself: beautiful, plush, sweet and delicate with white velvety petals from exotic flowers that entrance you with aphrodisiac qualities. The floral notes are very creamy, well rounded and tame while still being detectable and not too heady, sharp or perfumey. The dominant notes are a vanilla accord blended with a touch of divine white chocolate. The floral notes are present on initial application and for some time on the skin though on the long term dry down they will recede and the vanillas and white chocolate will be predominant. If you like the vanilla accord in Manor and Snowshoe Pass, it makes a striking appearance in this blend! Nightgown is wispy, innocent and mysterious at once - like feathers and a gently strummed harp.
This perfume is absolutely lovely! I love Solstice Scents' descriptions, because Angela lets you know exactly what to expect from initial application to dry down. It is a very floral fragrance when first applied, but a very beautiful one at that. I get hints of tuberose and another floral note- probably the tiare flowers. Almost immediately, the perfume tames down and turns into that "second skin" that was described in the scent description. It is very soft and suttle, yet overwhelmingly beautiful. It really is perfect for snuggling in bed with your loved one or your kitty cat! I do get the vanilla from Snowshoe Pass in this blend, which is great because I love that perfume too. I think this would be a perfect perfume for any day you don't want to smell too much like perfume and want something more delicate. I sometimes worry that people will get mad at me at work for always smelling like graveyards, ancient libraries, or haunted houses (which my favorite perfumes smell like); so Nightgown would probably be more of a crowd pleaser. I really feel like an outcast at both my jobs. No one else really wears makeup, nail polish, or even perfume.
Speaking of work, I must go get ready for it! Let me know what kind of Valentine edition perfumes you guys love!
