Oh. My. Lord! So I know I have some HOT fragrances in my collection, but I think this has to be the hottest! I mean, where do I start?! Firstly, the quote above says it all ‘pornographer’, ‘primal’ and ‘nuit’. Roja Parfums Parfum De La Nuit 1 is an intoxicating blend of rum, smoke, spice, leather, woods and a hint of sweetness. It’s like dark rum which had been aged in a barrel of which has been shipped around the world collecting the finest exports of every continent. It’s truly magical, dark, deep, sexy, intoxicating and all those things, imagine your ultimate evening fragrance and times it by 1000 and you might get there!!! Parfum De La Nuit 1 is very special, so special that I wish I could offer a scratch and sniff function on my blog to get my point across!
I discovered this perfume when I was in the Burlington Arcade store sniffing around with the fragrance experts. We spent a long time comparing and contrasting what I liked and didn’t like and discussing exactly what I liked about each fragrance. I know a lot of people get a little confused when it comes to fragrance and trying new perfumes. It can be hard figuring out what you love to wear, and finding something to suit your personality and taste. Weirdly it was during the session, I also discovered that I adored their fragrance Gardenia, which I never expected as it’s so fresh and Classic, which isn’t my usual taste. Fragrance is a very personal thing and there’s nothing worse than wearing a perfume that doesn’t work for you, it’s well worth taking the time to speak at length with a consultant and if you can, I would definitely recommend booking in for fragrance profiling to find out exactly what you love. If like me, you love rich, smoky, woodsy, leathery fragrance, then Parfum De La Nuit 1, is just divine!
