A surprisingly sensual vanilla
It's been a while since I smelt Hypnotic Poison, and while I can in some ways understand the comparison, I don't think Christina Aguilera By Night is entirely similar.

Out of all her commercially released fragrances so far, By Night is the best. There is nothing horribly synthetic about it and it sits on the skin nicely without being too loud or offensive.

Vanilla is very much the driving force within this fragrance. Thankfully it blends perfectly with all the other notes.

I rather enjoy the uniqueness of the top notes which consist of mandarin orange, red apple, hints of vanilla, almond and freesia. The red apple adds a delightfully fresh yet gourmand quality when blended with the almond and vanilla. The scent makes me long for a warm dish of apple crumble served with whipped cream.

Heading towards the drydown, the vanilla becomes muskier and slightly powdery which certainly makes an interesting scent when combined with the rich and warm amber. There is also a possible additive of white woods in the drydown which my nose seems to detect.

Overall I think Christina Aguilera has managed to produce a fragrance that many will like and eventually purchase. Its creaminess and sweetness makes it an excellent choice for Winter, however it could wear well in the Summer too. The lasting strength is quite good so far, so I feel rather relieved in being able to finally recommend a fragrance from Christina Aguilera's range.
