Brand: Solstice Scents

Scent Description:

Shake this perfume gently before use. Nightgown is an uncomplicated yet sensual and very creamy floral fragrance evoking the image of a gorgeous satin nightie with lace trim. It fits like a second skin and is the perfect attire for lounging and snuggling. This perfume is the representation of the fabric itself: beautiful, plush, sweet and delicate with white velvety petals from exotic flowers that entrance you with aphrodisiac qualities. The floral notes are very creamy, well rounded and tame while still being detectable and not too heady, sharp or perfumey. The dominant notes are a vanilla accord blended with a touch of divine white chocolate. The floral notes are present on initial application and for some time on the skin though on the long term dry down they will recede and the vanillas and white chocolate will be predominant. If you like the vanilla accord in Manor and Snowshoe Pass, it makes a striking appearance in this blend! Nightgown is wispy, innocent and mysterious at once – like feathers and a gently strummed harp.

  1. Firstly I bought this in EDP form having no idea what tuberose or tiare flowers smell like. I wasn’t sure if I’d like it at all, but I definitely do. It starts out heavy on the floral! At first I thought I would dislike it because it was *strong* but the dry down into sweet creamy white chocolate and vanilla is stunning. They blend perfectly together leaving a nice sweet scent lingering on your skin. Solstice Scent’s white chocolate and vanilla are one of my favorite combinations (it’s also present in Rose Mallow Cream and does the exact same lovely mellowing that it does here) and I commend them for their blending skills because wow, this scent is stunning. If you’re a fan of sweeter scents, you should definitely give this one a try.

  2. I have to say, this scent is beautiful. Personally not something that I’d reach for very often. I love the gardenia note in this, it’s there but it’s not a punch to the face. Most gardenia scents are too pungent and make my eyes water and my nose run. Tuberose has been known to take over on me but it stays in check in this blend. The gardenia note in this reminds me of a gardenia plant that my Gram had growing in her house. White floral notes aren’t my usual jam but I’ll make an exception for this. Hmm white chocolate is listed, my nose says a nondescript chocolate note and cream instead. Whatever I guess as long as it works, and this does! I could still smell this on me after 4 hours but, like other SS perfume oils do to me with wear, the vanilla becomes more prominent. An artfully balanced floral gourmand. It’s lovely.

  3. More bitter than white chocolate implies, its combination with vanilla creates a creamy opening edged with the full, heady white florals. The airy tiare is initially more detectable than the rich, buttery tuberose (which later dominates the scent), but both meld seamlessly into the gourmand notes, blooming on the skin as it dries and reading a touch waxy as they fade. The cool and slightly woody vanilla note that Solstice favors is very present here, and grows more prominent with wear.

  4. A creamy, delectable white floral. The florals are more prominent in the opening, almost bubblegum-like in their initial sweetness. The tropical flowers begin to open up on the skin, still with a generous helping of vanilla, and the white chocolate makes itself known over time as the florals gracefully fade out. The florals are plush and intoxicating, but not heady or overwhelming. It is smooth, velvety, and creamy. Truly a wonderful white floral – not indolic whatsoever, and may be enjoyable even for floral haters. Longevity of 5-6 hours, quiet throw after 2 hours.
