Hi guys! How are you smelling today? Haha! Today I’m going to be sharing my opinion of Aigner’s perfume Debut By Night.
I have seen this perfume lined up at International Airports, lined up near Paco Rabanne, Salvatore Ferragamo and Ralph Lauren but I haven’t bought anything from Etienne Aigner. Known for their iconic leather bags, Aigner is a well know luxury fashion house.
Concept: Aigner Debut By Night
Post launch Aigner Debut, a floral perfume that made it to a lot of shelves amongst us women, Aigner decided to launch a perfume more suited for evenings and night outs, known as Aigner Debut By Night. While it was available internationally since 2014, it has recently launched in India.
Bottle and Packaging
I’m a sucker for perfumes and their packaging: I am immensely taken in by the bottle, shape and design. However, I didn’t really care for the deep purple encasing. Inside was a golden bottle: geometrical, sleek and 100 ml of power.
Perfumery: Top, Middle and End Notes
I could smell the cedar from the nozzle.
A spray later, I frankly found the notes too overwhelming for my taste: like an aftershave from the 90s that was not for everyone.
I let it settle down and the floral notes settle in. The flowers are oriental: bergamot, lemon, pear and Petitgrain Paraguay. A few minutes later, I smell water lily which is at its heart, along with orange flower and rose. The end note, which is supposed to exude a sense of seduction has sweet and wooden touches of clove, cedarwood, patchouli and vanilla.
I don’t think it’s meant for everyone: anyone who has an appreciation or a penchant of the delicate mix of floral and woody scents would appreciate it.
This is also not suitable for sensitive women who are prone to headaches since this is a very powerful perfume. If you do like the smell, you will be spritzing it every day.
First impression: A good hit for Winters, late night parties or office events.
You would love it if: You appreciate spicy and floral scents
Should I pick it up at Duty-Free? Try it first.
A 100 ml bottle of Aigner Debut By Night is for Rs 5,500 approx!
