With temperatures rising the past two days, it feels like winter has finally made way for spring and on that note I’ve been cleaning out my beauty cupboard and stumbled across some fragrances I haven’t blogged about. So, in anticipation of spring, I’m reviewing some lovelies with a few giveaways in between! First up Lanvin Eclat de Nuit EDP which launched last year:
Lanvin is one of the oldest French fashion houses still in operation with a young designer,
Bruno Sialelli stepping in to breathe new life into the iconic fashion brand; (read here on founder Jeanne Lanvin). Known for classic femininity and strength in the fashion world, Lanvin’s perfumes are also legendary like editions of Eclat d’Arpège that forever stay in fashion; Lanvin created Eclat de Nuit, a perfume that captures the excitement of hot sultry summer nights.
“Perfume is an essential accessory on a woman’s dressing table” – Jeanne Lanvin
Zesty lemon, crispy apple and sparkling blackcurrant open the fragrance and develop into a floral heart dominated by ‘Belle de Nuit’ flower combined with white jasmine, freesia and orange blossom. The base is sweet and warm, thanks to praline, vanilla and sandalwood. Perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin wanted to emphasise femininity and touch on sensuality.
Shaped like the previous editions, Lanvin perfume glass bottle represents the flower in full bloom with an intense pink colour. A silver lid is topped with a crystal under which two rings are entwined, a symbol of a connection of two people. It comes in a Plexiglas outer box which goes hand in hadn’t to compliment the bottle shade.
With just enough warm base notes to keep the fruity-floriental combo balanced this is the perfect fragrance for spring/summer days. Think fresh, bright and will definitely put a spring in your step!
Lanvin Eclat de Nuit EDP is available in 30ml,50ml, 100ml from Dischem
That’s it for today – can you believe it is already Thursday?! Happy sunshiny day!
