For years I've wanted to try this, but it's discontinued, so I haven't had the chance to do so. Today, I found it at TJ Max & bought it, thinking it would be wonderful. It wasn't!! The vanilla is off & it starts off very perfumy & dries down quicker than any perfume ever! That part was interesting, at least! There's a reason this is discontinued!!

The two Fifth Avenue flankers I've tried both suffer from the same problem: unevenness. At times they have decent, even a bit stabby sillage. At others... gone. Nights opens with the slightly sharp Fifth avenue floral/citric accord. Underneath, in varying degrees, is a soft pillow of marshmallow-y vanilla embroidered with gentle white musk. That is my very favorite part. If I'm lucky, the floral sinks in, the sharp part fades, the vanillic/musk amps up, and I end with a softly floral, vanilla touched musk.

By the way, the vanillic component never reached cookies, pudding, etc. It's vanilla, but a stripped, sweet vanillic feel, more marshmallow than "vanilla." At least on my skin.

Or, I get stabby floral, waves of it. Or, i get watered out nothing that disappears. Or I get the latter then suddenly, whiffs of powdery sweetness. Since Night is currently starring in discount stores all over, it's definately worth a buy. I'll be interested to see if the chemistry/progression changes in cooler weather.

I purchased this unsniffed and recently swapped it away. Hopefully, its new owner gets some enjoyment out of it. I was completely seduced by the idea of white chocolate and coconutóthat sounds so deliciousóbut this reminded me of Versace Crystal Noir, which I really dislike. I tried this various times, but it didn't work for me. I didn't pick up on anything gourmand in this. It's too synthetic smelling to me and there's a sharp note in it that I found to be very off-putting.

Mmmm.... this is really niiice. I've never worn EA perfumes before, but THIS could very well be my first. My mom used to wear the original 5th Avenue 10 years ago & I remember how great she smelled back then. But because it was distinctly HER scent & that I would forever associate it with her, I never bought a bottle for myself even long after she stopped wearing it. Which is why I was thrilled to bits when 5th Avenue Nights came out recently... not only is the gourmand-oriental scent very 'me', but most importantly, it's a version of 5th Avenue that I can finally call my own (yay!) The perfume is truly lovely from beginning to end -- there are no harsh notes whatsoever... just warm, soft, delicious, creamy, bakery goodness... JUST the way I like it. The musk/woods/white chocolate/vanilla base is absolutely scrumptious! And the staying power is INCREDIBLE. I spray-tested it on my wrist yesterday afternoon & could still smell it when I woke up this morning... wow. All in all, one of the very few perfectly flawless fragrances in my book. Can't wait to get me a bottle... & what a beautiful bottle! Really loving the black & silver combo... so New York City chic! :)

To me this smells like a grown up version of Skin Musk, by Bonne Bell. Great lasting power. Also smells like Mariah Carey a bit. Very light, but nice

I had bought this and then didn't want it so I returned it.But I bought it again today and now I like it. At first I thought it was too light and I couldn't smell it but now I can and it is lasting and lingering.It smells sweet I can smell the chocolate notes and it reminds me of vera wang princess a bit. I like this so I want a back up bottle.

Fabulous!! The newest scent from E. Arden

I don't normally wear Arden scents; they always seem too granny-like. I do like the original 5th ave., though.It is a pleasant scent.

Nights is really a gorgeous, clean and yummy scent that is very addictive! When first sprayed, it seems synthetic and loud, but it soon dries down into a creamy, sexy scent that lingers on the skin for hours. I am constantly smelling myself when I wear this. I wish it came with a lotion!

I have yet to try 5th ave after five; I may end up liking that, too.

Well done, Arden!
