Hey Hey Perfume Posse, Portia from Australian Perfume Junkies to remind you tomorrow it will be Friday Night! WOO HOO! We’ve worked all week, most of us, in whatever capacity our week takes. It’s Friday Night and you can cut loose, let your hair down or put it up, go hang with the crew or the one you love. Friday Nights around here are Date Night and Jin & I do as many together as we can. It’s not always possible, sometimes I get a gig or Jin is working 7 days and is too tired. Even so we do something together and sometimes it’s so late or we are so tired that means we go to bed and read/play computer games/chat and have a cuppa before we head for the land of nod. We don’t always keep it just us either, it can be just as fun doing Friday Night Date Night with the crew.

Friday Night Fragrances: Date Night Delight
Shalimar by Guerlain: Any vintage, every strength and all the lotions and potions. I wear Shalimar a lot for Friday Night Date Night because it smells terrific on me, lasts really well and it isn’t intrusive. I just know that I smell amazing, like a vanilla/citrus ice cream that gets more lived in as the night progresses.
Scarlett by Cacharel: I think this one has been discontinued but you can get it for a song at the discounters. White flowers, honey, fruit and tea are the main ingredients and it is sweet, fun, pretty and quite good projection and longevity. Dry down is a soft warm generic wood with a little kick of animal honey to make it interesting.
Tuberosa by Les Voiles Depliees: If you LOVE Tuberose and are unafraid of its siren song then this could be the find of the decade for you. Tougher and more strident than Fracas it is a tuberose POWERHOUSE, I get a plastic, a peachy, and a milky almond: none of which are in the official notes. The amber/patchouli is very synthetic and I love it, so fun

Ubar by Amouage: I love Ubar, can wear it any time of year and know it will be amazing. In winter it is a spicy, cozy, cushy and plush fragrance that will warm me through. In summer though Ubar blooms in an entirely different way, all that hot stuff unfurls differently, there is more vetiver and the flowers are more fun and festive. In summer Ubar says “Where’s the party?”
Une Voix Noire by Serge Lutens: Gardenia done with a berry intro and a dark breathy dry down. A boozy gardenia that sits quietly on my skin, extremely beautiful, sensual, exotic and alluring but a close set beauty that has good sillage but not too strong projection. Excellent movie or theatre choice.
Vanille Absolument by L’Artisan Parfumeur: Sadly this vanilla beauty is also discontinued but I do see it on the discounters sometimes quite cheaply. Wonderful fragrance for cool evenings that turn into super hot nights. Ultimate sensuality, the vanilla, tobacco, run and resins of the dry down melt into your skin and create the fantasy flavour you always wished you could smell like.

Friday Night Fragrance Question?
So sure, I have a some faves but what I really want to know is “What Do You Wear for Date Night?” Do you have a Friday Night routine? Is it a special frag or does the frag change to suit the mood? Do the seasons matter in your choice? What will you wear this week?
