Abbreviated perfume & fragrance reviews from one man's perspective

New Release: Night Flower by Eris Parfums

10 Comments

ERIS+PARFUMS+Night+Flower+2WHAT I SMELL:  Sex sells…and the Eris Parfums line is all about sex.  But before I get ahead of myself…on the skin, Night Flower is initially very sweet and sparkling, then quickly a warm and voluptous cardamom that’s seems to be wrapped in a light coating of honey comes rushing forward.  The perfume is wonderfully sexy at this point, rather like the movement of a silken slip that playfully falls off the shoulders.  There’s a warmth to the perfume, but the warmth feels like it’s generating from the skin vs. the perfume. After 10 minutes, a dirtied light leather moves its way in.  The leather adds another dimension of seduction as the playfulness of the opening moves towards a more serious tone.  After some more time, the perfume seems to recede and darken as you’ll need to lean in close to experience its hidden mysteries.  In the end, the perfume is this quiet whisper of a burning ember of patchouli.  It feels like at any time, the spark of the fire could explode and burst out of control.

From the Eris Parfums website:

NIGHT FLOWER Eau de Parfum opens with a blast of fresh, aromatic cardamom. Animalic leather and suede wrap around a narcotic Indian tuberose, drying down to a cozy base of birch tar, patchouli, cinnamon and tonka. 

“Night Flower is a leathery, animalic floral fragrance. Spellbinding, sexual and addictive.” – Antoine Lie (Perfumer)

Splendor-in-the-Grass-02WHAT IT SMELLS LIKE TO ME:  Natalie Wood as Deanie in Splendor in the Grass…a girl stuck between love, lust and trying to remain good.

THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE NIGHT FLOWER: come-hither, tempered, controlled

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT NIGHT FLOWER:  Indieperfumes, The Non-Blonde, Katie Puckrick Smells

BOTTOM LINE:  Letting your inner sexual self reveal itself is easy to do with the new line of Eris Parfums.  Night Flower is my favorite in the line and is probably the most tame of the three in the collection.   But there’s just enough hidden mystery to make one just feel that you’re letting your dark side come out to play.

  2. Darn it, tuberose. Can’t do it. I dunno if I could do the others in this line either, but maybe Belle de Jour would suit me the most. Except seaweed … hmm.

  4. Well gosh, I was just thinking I needed to reveal my inner sexy self so I should probably get some samples of these ASAP! And maybe a silken slip too, just for giggles. 🙂 But I noticed in Holly’s comment that one of these fragrances has a seaweed note?!?! That too sounds very intriguing. It’s all very intriguing and I feel compelled to try all of them. I probably shouldn’t read reviews when I’m tipsy, hehe, it makes everything way too intriguing all at once!

  5. It sounds interesting though I’m wary of tuberose. I’ll try it anyway if our paths cross.
