Top 5 Summer Evening Fragrances

DKNY Be Tempted, Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium, Michael Kors Midnight Shimmer, By Kilian Straight to Heaven White Crystal, Dior Poison Girl

I’ve given you my favourite top 5 summer day fragrances, now it’s time for the evening with some new launches and special editions! 

Dior Poison Girl

Dior Poison Girl 

I’ve always loved the Poison perfumes. They have so much power without being overpowering and this fragrance is no exception. With only one note I’ve actually heard of; bitter orange, I had to google the other two. The Grasse Rose is a fragrant rose from the town of Grasse in France while a Tonka Bean has a vanilla like flavour with scents of cinnamon, saffron, almond and cloves. They all blend together however to create the most deliciously sweet smell. An easy fragrance for cocktails on terraces between tall buildings in the warm cities.

Straight to Heaven by Kilian – White Crystal

A strangely alcoholic smelling fragrance, but not in an unpleasant way. The notes a burning splash of rum softened with dried fruit and displayed in the most elegant way. Kilian Hennessey take’s so much pride in every single fragrance he creates. With a stunningly elaborate bottle, matte black and embossed with intricate carvings, each fragrance is a work of art. The bottle even arrived in a padded engraved box with a key to open it – of course, opulence comes with a price tag, so this should solely be saved for the most special of summer evenings. 

Michael Kors Midnight Shimmer

Michael Kors Midnight Shimmer

Soft musk, jasmine pearls and sensual vanilla, the scent is rich and woody and reminds me of summer evenings dancing on the beach bare foot in the moonlight with friends on tropical shores. The bottle, more like the stars we dance under – a beautiful sparkling gold blending into a midnight blue and topped with the iconic gold cap. 

DKNY Be Tempted

DKNY Be Tempted

Like all of the DKNY Apple fragrances, Be Tempted is a juicy sweet scent that feels as though it were created for evening strolls through blossom fields in far away countries. The exotic scent carried by the snake wrapped around the top of the iconic red apple oozes black current, lemon and red fruits entwined with rose oil, orange blossom and oriental Myrrh resin to create I think this is my favourite evening scent of the summer. Due to launch in September this year, Be Tempted is not a fragrance you want to miss! 

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium 

A starry universe in a bottle filled with energy from the black coffee, and pink pepper muddled with romance from the jasmine and vanilla. The logo in the centre of the bottle reminds me of the moon in the nights sky, it really is a beautiful bottle with a fragrance that sweetens as the evening goes on. This fragrance is made with the sole intention of being worn under the full moon, with nothing to enjoy it but your love and the moon under a blanket of stars stretching to the oceans on the horizon.
