Naomi Goodsir Nuit de Bakelite Eau de Parfum is an extremely inexperienced interpretation of tuberose; it’s not a tuberose scent as different tuberose soliflores could be. Nuit de Bakelite celebrates the greener features, virtually just like the aroma of the water that tuberose stems have been sitting in. It’s peppery, vegetal, and rooty with delicate floralcy.

What does Nuit de Bakelite Scent Like?
It was gentle, barely fruity and florally, with a spiced woodiness intermingled with a inexperienced bouquet that enveloped all the pieces. There was a pepperiness to the galbanum that coupled with the greenness of the angelica. It was candy in a rooty, earthy means, virtually like carrots. There was a lifted high quality to the fragrance, the place it was mild and ethereal however not clear. It jogged my memory extra of candy, vegetable greens within the backyard than something overtly floral; it was recent, mild, and paying homage to a heat spring day with nary a breeze.
Whereas one might need been led to consider this was going to be a tuberose-centered fragrance, it didn’t find yourself that means in any respect; it was so inexperienced, vegetal, and herbaceous that the blur of white floral appeared incidental. After an hour and a half, Nuit de Bakelite sweetened, misplaced a few of the inexperienced sharpness, and gained extra of a spiced woodiness.
There have been minor shifts between then and the drydown, which appeared across the fifth hour, when the scent turned much less inexperienced and fewer floral and the woodiness and faint powderiness prevailed.
It lasted for eight hours till it was a skin-scent and about 12 hours earlier than it was fairly tough to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection have been reasonable initially and moved nearer to the physique and the pores and skin after three hours.
For testing, I used 1/3 of a 0.7ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as I discovered scent didn’t maintain nicely right here in any other case.
I bought my pattern in February 2022; fragrances are recognized to be reformulated over their lifetime, so be aware of when a assessment was made, e.g. a assessment from 2010 could not mirror what the same-named fragrance smells like in 2022.
Nuit de Bakelite is on the market for $187/50ml.
If potential, I extremely advocate making an attempt a perfume earlier than buying a full bottle as a result of perfume can put on in a different way simply due to pores and skin chemistry. Pores and skin chemistry can impact not simply the longevity of a perfume but in addition what notes are outstanding or hidden.
