Heat of the Night

Brand: Solstice Scents

Scent Description:

Heat of the Night opens with tropical notes to represent the bridge crossed from day to night in paradise. The day was full of sun and surf, mango-coconut milkshakes and an icy vanilla-orange julius. As the sun passes below the horizon, darker more sensual notes of sandalwood and amber merge with a base of Edge of the Night* to overtake the playful memories created while the sun was at full blaze. Heat of the Night progresses into a sultry mysterious fragrance as the memories of the day fade. The delicious fruity top notes recede within about 20 minutes of application, making way for amber and warm sandalwood cloaked in a sweet vanilla tinged with creamy coconut. The deep shadows cast by the Edge of the Night base enrich and intrigue the composition. Heat of the Night may open with a juicy tropical melange, but it leads to a humid ambered-vanilla heavy fragrance best experienced at full dark. A true morpher, this journey is highly recommended applied at dusk.

Heat of the Night is the sixth and final 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 lightly as a base for Heat of the Night, the end result is a humid rich incense fragrance with tropical nuances. Though you can detect Edge of the Night carefully woven into the Heat of the Night blend, primarily after it has been on the skin for a while, Heat of the Night is its own unique, amber rich fragrance with a sensual musky base, soft woods, cloaked in sweet vanilla and coconut. 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 Heat. After several hours of wear, the two fragrances share a similar character though Heat of the Night maintains a more incensey and sweeter character due to the amber and gourmand notes used.

  1. This started off by amping cinnamon (possibly from the Edge base?) and almost veered into a weird Christmas-y craft store for the first 30 minutes. I wasn’t thrilled, but then some sort of magic happened, and it settled down into a sexy soft well-blended amber incense with fruity notes. Love this one for summer, poolside, and tropical getaways, just ignore the first few minutes of Thanksgiving vibes!

  2. This is a very amber- heavy blend, with some tropical nuances from mango and sweet citrus, and the base is beautifully spicy yet sweet, without going to a christmas candle territory. Personally, I’m not getting any coconut. Definitely makes me think of nighttime at some tropical beach. And as with SS usually, longevity and throw are very good.
