The perfect party perfumes

By Amy Lawrenson



With the festive season fast approaching I’ve been looking for a scent to carry me through all the parties and late nights. I’m intrigued by Jasmine; the delicate white flower only blooms at night which is when it releases its warm, sensual aroma making it an ideal choice for a party perfume.

Sensuous Noir, from £32, is Estee Lauder’s newest addition to its fragrance range, with notes including black pepper, spiced lily and patchouli, it has a depth that warms my skin and sits beautifully on heavier winter fabrics. For those wanting a more traditional perfume, Chanel harnesses night blooming jasmine in its famous sparkling classic, No 5, from £44. A favourite party perfume of mine is Bvlgari’s Jasmin Noir, from £41, sophisticated, heady and addictive – well worth a sniff when you’re next in the beauty hall. However, for anyone looking for something a bit different, the super cool fragrance house Le Labo has a perfume dedicated to the flower – Jasmine 17, £125, with musk, vanilla and sandalwood it’s a pretty, less traditional choice (you’ll find it in Liberty’s Aladdin’s cave of a beauty hall). Finally, Jo Malone has combined White Jasmine and Mint for a fresher take – ideal if you prefer lighter, less aromatic fragrances whatever the time of day or night.
