At this time of year, I kind of feel the need to update my daily scent. The light citruses I’ve been wearing all season don’t feel quite enough, but I’m still far away from the heavier notes of my winter perfumes. So when Floris sent over their Night Blooming Jasmine Eau de Toilette, it felt like kismet.
The perfume feels seriously old school, and similarly luxe. It looks beautiful on my dressing table, and it smells even better! Inspired by a Floris scent from 1906, Night Blooming Jasmine is a lighter way to enjoy a white-flower fragrance.
When first applied, you get a huge whoosh of jasmine and orange blossom. It’s the perfect day scent thanks to how clean and soapy it feels. It smells clean rather than ‘perfume-y’ and it’s one of those fragrances where people tell you that you smell good, rather than ask what you’re wearing.
As Night Blooming Jasmine dries down, the notes of gardenia (my all-time favourite) as well as jasmine and narcissus become more noticeable. As the day goes on, you get wafts of white flower, and it smells absolutely glorious. Floris also offers the scent as a Bath & Shower Gel and a Moisturiser – it’s the most decadent way to layer up a fragrance for maximum wear time!
Floris Night Blooming Jasmine Eau de Toilette is priced at £75 and is available here
