Sex in the City Midnight Eau de Parfum
Advantages: It was fairly cheap
Disadvantages: Doesn't smell nice and doesn't last
I am a big fan of Sex & The City and I own most of the shows on dvd. Recently, I also became the owner of the fragrance based on the show too called Midnight.
This perfume is advertised as being a dark, mysterious and passionate fragrance which promises to capture the passionate mood of the midnight hours. It's aroma is described as being rich and enchantingly seductive being intense yet still feminine. It has been designed for evening wear and promises to make you smell and feel sexy and captivating.
I can't find anything online to tell me about the base, middle or top notes of the fragrance other than it being described as floral oriental.
Packaging and Price
The perfume comes contained within a massive and heavy glass bottle that actually looks quite masculine to me. It has Sex & The City written on one side and Midnight on the other. The bottom half of the glass is purple/pink colour while the top half is made out of silver metal. It has holes all over the top. The lid is a rectangular shape which purple plastic loops sticking out of either side. I'm not sure where they were going with the design of the bottle and it's not one that I like to have on show.
The product is priced quite cheaply and I bought it for general day wear to stop me from using up my more expensive perfume too quickly. I got it for around £8 for 100ml of the fragrance on Ebay but it comes in a variety of prices from a variety of online websites so it's best to shop around.
Application and Aroma
A lot of the perfume comes out as you push down on the metal dispenser and it comes out all at once rather than as a mist. This is can make wet patches on your skin which doesn't work well with fake tan and can also leave wet patches on your clothes. This doesn't happen as much if you hold the bottle further away from the body as you use it but it still does happen to a degree. Two squirts of the bottle dispenses a fair amount of the fragrance onto your skin.
The strength of this perfume is pretty well. When you first dispense the product, the aroma is strong initially, with an aroma of heavy musk which isn't entirely pleasant and it's pretty old fashioned in my opinion. This dies down very quickly and after a few minutes, you are left with quite a weak aroma. It is one that is very floral and but quite cheap smelling.
It reminds me a bit of public toilets which have been freshened with a floral air freshener which isn't what I want to smell of. The perfume can only be detected if someone is really up close to you and it fades even further within half an hour to a non existent fragrance. On the plus side, and I'm clutching at straws here, it hasn't irritated my skin or caused me any discomfort.
All in all, even though this is a cheap perfume, it smells of cheap flowers and fades quickly. The scent isn't very evident after the first few minutes and it's not not something I would use, even in a perfume emergency. I'll be passing this on to a friend but I'm sure it will eventually end up in the bin.
Summary: A cheap but poor perfume which doesn't stick around and smells pretty bad
