It’s a rush of powdery florals with a wet bite of crisp pink pepper and soft fruity lychee. Combining classic facets of Guerlain’s haute parfumerie with modernist glints, Nuit d’Amour has all the shimmering elegance and appeal of Klimt’s ‘Lady with Hat and Feather Boa.’ It’s charming and indelibly feminine with a faint air of the mysterious that only deepens as the fragrance continues to open up…but never too much. Just like the ‘Lady with Hat and Feather Boa,’ this is a don’t ask for fear or rebuttal type perfume. It’s fondness is for haughty discreet women who wear their aloofness as easily as mink and fine jewels.
The big heart rose de mai and violet ensures a classic form while the dryness of iris meets the sandalwood and white musk base to give a warm caress, the embodiment of femininity. Layers of powder settle gently on the skin. Don’t be thrown by Nuit D’Amour’s first spicy and fruity glance, at heart she’s thoroughly traditional and very, very much a lady.
Nuit D’Amour is available exclusively from Harrods priced £168 (125ml)
