Midnight in Paris

Posted in

Launched in 2010 by legendary French jewellery company, Van Cleef & Arpels, the legendary French jewellery with a flagship store at 22 place Vendôme, in Paris. In 1976 they launched their first fragrance, called First, and have since produced a number of fine fragrances, Midnight in Paris among them.
Midnight in Paris has a bright opening from bergamot and lemon. As they fade, green tea and black tea take the centre stage supported by woody, balsmy rosemary and lily-of-the-valley, which gives it a lovely, elegant floral note. Then there is a surprise - Tonka bean. Its almond/vanilla spiciness shines above the other notes but wrapped with warm incense and leather, so it gives a gourmand note but never gets too sweet. As it dries down, the Tonka bean fades a bit, blending in with the smooth, soft woodiness that lasts for hours.

Midnight in Paris really blooms beautifully on the skin and is a must-try fragrance.
