Review: By Night EDT by Christina Aguilera

The Fragrance
- - - - - - - - - - -

Christina Aguilera BY NIGHT is a flanker to her first Proctor and Gamble fragrance Christina Aguilera. It follows the same fruity/floral blueprint, but the stronger vanilla and almond notes give the fragrance a creamy, oriental feel.

BY NIGHT is a mild, non-cloying, sweet fragrance; but the sweetness is made more adult and sexier by being close to the skin; it whispers 'come closer'

Scent notes

Mandarin, freesia apple, almonds, rhubarb, pineapple, heliotrope, peach blossom, amber and vanilla.

The bottle

The bottle is the same feminine shape as Christina Aguilera, but the lace pattern is different and the color pink has been introduced to the bottle.

Other buying considerations

The staying power is very poor; It goes close to the skin after an hour and burns out within three hours.

It is easy to wear and inoffensive to my work colleagues, so it is a good choice for an every day perfume as long as you don't mind constantly 'freshening up'. I don't think it is a good choice for nights out; It's 'quiet' and you'd need to carry a bottle round for re-freshening it.

As well as being easy to wear, it can also be worn all year round; The fruits and mild florals are perfect for the summer, whilst everything is [non-cloyingly] sweet, which provides comfort in colder weather.

My opinion
- - - - - - - - -

Much better than her first Christina Aguilera, but it can’t be described as original; it reminds me of a few other fragrances, including Hypnotic Poison. But CHRISTINA AGUILERA BY NIGHT is less expensive than most of its scent-a-likes, so it’s worth trying out.

As it's already similar to perfumes I already own, I won't buy it myself, although it's nice enough that I would wear it if it were given to me as a gift.


I think that it would be a safe gift choice for someone, as the fragrance is largely ageless and is easy to wear and none of the notes are strong enough to be disagreeable.
