Packaging very cute green bottle! very vintage look to it.
Starts off very smoky/woodsy like I just came back from a campfire. Then becomes a slightly sweet powdery scent....then powder/vanilla dry-down. If this sounds amazing to you! then go for it!
I personally, was not a huge fan but that is because i am not fond of vanilla/powder dry downs.
I agree with the previous reviewer. Fancy Nights smells very similar to Shalimar or Emeraulde. If not similar, definatley in the same family. This is a more mature kind of scent and a huge difference between the other perfumes in the Fancy line. Not a big fan of this one, as I didn't have the right chemistry to pull this off.
to me, it has a similar character to shalimar or emeraude (sp?). anyway, it is not sweet like the other ones.
I love the green bottle-not typical in perfume bottles today- looks beautiful
This is one of my favorite scents for fall and winter, and I urge anyone who like a woody oriental to try it.
I'm usually not big on celebrity scents, and when I tried this on I expected a sweet and spicy oriental - the way most celebrity scents are when the are trying to be a bit grown up. (or goth, talking to you, Avril) Much like Beyonce Heat.
Instead, I got a warm, spicy and sexy scent. More of a woody cyphre then warm vanilla. It also has a slightest bit of well behaved skank in it, and I love that.
If you like Tom ford Black orchid, then this is a scent for you.
I smelled this on a magazine sample and actually loved it!but of course,there was tht magazine-y undertone (I love how magazines smell for some reason,btw!;D)I sprayed this on one arm in ulta.i gave the packaging a four,because I think the bottle perfectly describes it,but it was really hard to spray some.on me,u could tell it was the same perfume I smelled in the magazine,but this one note(I don't know perfume notes too well)just took over and dominated everything.it was very strong,too,and when I was in the parking lot,the wind wafted it all around us,and in the car,it practically attacked our noses.it's too strong for it's own good.even if I liked this scent,I'm not sure I would be able to pull it off,because it smells really mature and adult.if u like this,then ur in luck,because it has excellent staying power.(I tried scrubbing it off,to no avail.)oh yeah,and a few hours later,it somehow became a little sweeter?and all that overwhelmingness was from one spray on one arm.so,uh,don't overdo it with this perfume.:)
Tested this a couple of times and while I think it's really well done, it's too close on my skin to Midnight Poison which I already own to warrant buying. It has a similar dark, powdery patchouli/evergreen cloud and for that reason it's admirably adult, and definitely worth the $20 if you like those notes. Lovely vintage-styled bottle, too!
ETA: Ended up buying it anyway...there is more vanilla in FN which makes it different enough to add to my arsenal of spicy warm patches!
Fancy Nights bears a remarkable similarity to the original Prada, only at a fraction of the price. Nothing wrong with that, in my opinion! Rich, deep amber and patchouli.
If you liked the smell of the original Fancy when it was in a magazine scent strip, but didn't like it when actually sprayed from the bottle, then this is the juice for you!
At first spray this is much stronger than the other JS scents, but after about an hour it mellows right down and smells exactly like the scent strip in that it doesn't have that burnt sugar thing going on.
I love this one. And the bottle is really cute too.
I love this scent. It's so different than the other JS scents. Those are more youthful and this one is more adult.
Smells sexy. Great for cooler weather.
This is a very strong and clingy scent - it definitely has a strong dose of patchouli, and a sticky sweet heavy fruit note that is similar to the one in Kenzo L'Elephant and I can only assume is Prunol. I don't think it's horrible, but I do think it is insanely strong and would definitely overwhelm anyone in a ten foot proximity. Just way too much. Official notes, according to Mimifroufrou are citrusy bergamot, papyrus, patchouli, Bulgarian red rose, Night Blooming Jasmine, creamy vanilla, soft sandalwood, amber and oakmoss.
