Today I’m wearing Christian Lacroix Nuit for Avon 50ml EDP, R440.
I have never able to think of Lacroix without remembering the episode of Ab Fab where Eddie is appalled that she has baby sick on her Lacroix. “Lacroix, baby spew, Lacroix, baby spew. Huh, sweetie, huh, huh?”
Thankfully now I’ll think of this gorgeously delicate scent from the designer. He’s partnered with Avon to crack the fragrance mass market. And I have to say, he’s done well with Nuit.
The top note is fresh and floral with bergamot and neroli mixing with honeysuckle. The heart is a headier floral accord of jasmine, tuberose and narcissus. While the base note is rich and enveloping thanks to incense, amber, musk and wood.
There is also a version for the boys which is just as addictive.
