[unpaid/sample] If you’re looking for a fragrance to embrace the evenings, La Montana Night Star is ticking that box. It’s glamorous without being hefty, it’s sultry without being obvious and it’s enveloping without being smothering.
At first, because of the nutmeg, mandarin and myrrh, I thought of this as a winter night fragrance – when it’s dark and you’re all wrapped up in your coat with your best dress on, waiting to step into a taxi to take you partying – but I can equally see how this might work for a summer evening, too. It’s sensual, there’s no doubt about that, spicy, voluptuous and velvety and the vanilla is quite strong but it’s a smooth vanilla – no biscuit connotations with this.
I am reminded of Andy Tauer Orange Star – perhaps because of the mandarin but also in personality. Night Star is memorable – a signature fragrance if ever I smelled one and if you love deep fragrances that accessorize rather than assimilate, you will love this. If I had to put an item of clothing to Night Star it would be a richly coloured velvet dress or jumpsuit. Again, a 10ml is available for £22 HERE and I think I’d take that option to be honest in case you imprint this fragrance on all of the above and forget about it for a summer option.
