Once again a fragrance like the delicate skin of perfumas!
Hello hello your smelling flasks :D
Only a few days before Christmas I publish another commi, but this time with the appropriate name "Étoile d'une Nuit", which means "star of a night". I have to think of Christmas cinnamon stars (although my stomach is more likely to think of them here), or of course the poinsettia on the Christmas tree. However, I have to admit that neither of my two Christmas trees (yeah... there are several Christmas trees standing around here... :D) has a star at the top of my room. However, the big tree is also standing on a chest of drawers, so there was hardly any room for the star, because the tree almost touches the ceiling and the other one on my desk is just a small, tiny tree.

But there is a star at the top of the tree in the living room! (... I already said that there are several trees here... :DD). Soo... but okay, back to the fragrance: According to the description, this fragrance from Annick Goutal is supposed to be for the self-confident woman. Which sounds pretty much meaningless and extremely hackneyed, as many manufacturers praise their fragrances with "the modern, self-confident woman of today" or, in the case of men's fragrances, "for the modern, successful man of today" or something similar.

Be that as it may, the few scents do not sound bad in any case. Iris, for example, is always great with feminine fragrances, because it is so soft and gentle like... oh you can already guess what I would write here again :D
Therefore, I try now, without further talking around the bush, to come directly to the fragrance description!

The sweetish scent is also a little fruity, so that you can smell the raspberries from time to time, which increases the feminine factor considerably. By the way, the whole thing also looks a little bit like nice make-up.
Even later the fragrance remains quite soft and sweetish, make-up-like and has a slightly clean look.
A little later the rose also comes through, although I think the rose is the weakest fragrance here. At the base, not much changes and the fragrance basically stays as it started, with a mainly iris and soft, clean scent.

The silage and the durability:*
The scent starts out quite well in terms of charisma, but unfortunately weakens too quickly, so I would describe the Sillage on the whole as below average or even slightly weak, which is more easily smelled up close. The shelf life is also somewhat moderate or below average with its five to six hours.


Ahh, yes yes, the Étoile d'une Nuit is once again one of those fragrances where you, at least as a guy, could imagine the scent very well on the skin of women, because it smells so soft and beautiful and then you want to bite directly, well you know :)

BUT: Please don't ask us a particular question, because that could really get us into trouble. This question would then roughly read:
"Does this mean my skin doesn't smell nice without perfume?"
Uh... yeah, see? That's a very mean question. Because even if we then answer:
"Of course, but it smells better with scent" would not go down very well with such an answer... oh *sigh* it's all hard to be a guy... :D

All right. But as I said: So here we have a very pleasant fragrance with clean elements, nice smelling scents, but unfortunately a weak aura. I have to mention, however, that strictly speaking the fragrance is not so special or really stands out from similar fragrances, as there are some fragrances with iris, rose etc., which are all very similar. But if you don't already have a fragrance like this, you can really take a peek. It can be used as an all-rounder in every season and the occasion is also very varied. He goes to relax, to cuddle, to go out, just for a day and and and and and ...

And that's it for the scent. By the way, if I don't introduce a new scent here before Christmas, then I wish you a merry christmas now, and I will also mention this in my upcoming christmas blog (yes yes... I'm sure my tomcat will be there again... :D). Otherwise I wish you all a nice evening :)

Smarter Damrnduft
I also think it smells really tasty and lasts very well all day and far into the night. He's got a little fruity powderiness. I was at an event for two days and was asked about the scent several times. I find him successful, not extremely unusual but very wearable because he radiates for me such a feminine sensuality in a pleasantly reserved way. Such a ladylike smart candidate, this lady wears a chic costume but also a worn out Bellstaff biker leather jacket, which sometimes runs barefoot, but also makes a great presentation in the office that sweeps everyone along. And in the evening she is the seductress in an inimitably stylish way. What I very well also I rate its long shelf life

Uninspiring Rose-Berry Lipstick
Etoile d'Une Nuit is very much in synch with the previous two entries of Oiseaux de Nuit series to my nose, especially with Tenue de Soirée, being a fruity gourmand perfume alluding lipstick with iris. The iris in Etoile d'Une Nuit is more starchy or doughy than creamy at times, and is accompanyed by a honeyed rose, strawberry and raspberry candies without any tart flavour of the real berries, and a caramelised resin undertone. As a result, it sometimes smells like a sweet fruity rosy waxy lipstic, and othertimes like a loaf of brioche bread with honey, rose and raspberry jam baked within.

The fragrance remains mostly the same and only becomes more and more abstract with time. Occasionally it also has a slightly plastic vibe to my nose, probably a combined effect of the starchy texture of iris and the overall artificial berry sweetness. It has a moderate sillage during its 9-hour wear on me.

Overall, I find Etoile d'Une Nuit mostly coherent with this new line of Annick Goutal, a gourmand not awfully saccharine, but not anything innovative or sophisticated either. Personally speaking, there are other lipstick-themed perfumes that I find are either more refined or with more character, and not necessarily more expensive. Therefore, I would not particularly recommend it as a first choice.
