Christina Aguilera By Night Eau De Parfum

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Christina Aguilera By Night Eau De Parfum. This fragrance contains the following notes: apple, pineapple, tangerine, rhuburb and freesia (top notes), heliotrope, peach blossom and lily-of-the-valley (heart notes), and vanilla, amber, sandalwood and oak moss (base notes).

I’ve given this fragrance a few tries, and I’m not blown away. Looking at the notes, it sounds promising. However, this is a very simple fragrance without much finesse or development.

The heliotrope note makes this fragrance smell like some vanilla sugar coating for tablets. But there’s also a touch of sandalwood which takes the fragrance from gourmand to cosmetic. I might have liked this fragrance when I was a teenager, and I can see that this type of fragrance probably appeals to a lot of younger women, but it’s definitely not for me. I’ll give it away.

If you’re interested, Christina Aguilera By Night Eau De Parfum is available as 15ml, 30ml and 50ml. I have a 50ml, and I paid £13.95.
