Brand: Solstice Scents
Rose petals dusted with sugar crystals, creamy chocolate ganache filled truffles and a blend of delicate vanillas intertwine above a very soft background base of Edge of the Night. Heart of the Night features copious amounts of sugared rose petals and whiffs of fine chocolate and vanilla. The Edge of the Night base adds a sophisticated subtle muskiness that elevates it into a very sensual feminine fragrance and helps tame the strong gourmand notes. Rose Mallow Cream is Heart of the Night’s more innocent and demure counterpart. Heart of the Night shares a similar candied rose fragrance with Rose Mallow Cream but it’s not quite as sweet. Imagine Rose Mallow Cream with chocolate and delicate deep musk in lieu of strawberry, marshmallow and white musk. On initial application, the Bulgarian and Moroccan Rose absolutes come through with a puff of sweet sugar. The chocolate weaves in and out of the fragrance. At this point, the musky base is far in the background and takes a while to fully emerge. The dry down features a medley of soft notes: sweet, musk, very faint floral, chocolate and magic. The whole journey is decadent and delicious. Heart of the Night is strong upon initial application and is very concentrated. You may wish to dab it on to start and then reapply to build a stronger concentration if you desire.
Heart of the Night is the fourth offering in ‘The Night’ line. When crafting Edge of the Night, it was clear that it was a fragrance that could stand on its own but also one that would make an incredible darkly sensual foundation for other oils. Used as a base for Heart of the Night, the end result is a sophisticated floral gourmand fragrance which contains a total of 26 fragrance and essential oils. Though you can detect Edge of the Night carefully woven into the Heart of the Night blend, Heart of the Night is its own unique candied rose fragrance with a sensual muskiness and a smooth chocolate interlude. The Edge of the Night fragrance worn alone manifests a deeper, musky, powdery dry down with a green lift and is mildly spicy as compared to Heart. After several hours of wear, the two fragrances share a similar character though Heart of the Night maintains a much lighter and sweeter character due to the gourmand and floral notes used.
