Jean Paul Gaultier Scandal by Night was released in 2018, created by Daphne Bugey. A gourmand chypre, described as "ultimately unbridled and unchaining." Not really that! Despite the legs on top of the bottle and all the ad copy, this is a pretty great mainstream gourmand. There's nothing weird in here or funky, but if you don't love honey and cherry in perfume, this might not be for you.
A flanker of Jean Paul Gaultier Scandal, it has notes of honey, bitter orange, citruses, cherry, tuberose, orange blossom, pear, jatamansi, tonka, vanilla, patchouli, sandalwood, amberwood and white musk.
Fragrantica - "I absolutely love this perfume, smells really sexy and quite sweet but not cloying at all. I could smell the honey mixed with the cherry. Very well blended would definitely recommend. The longevity and sillage is amazing also projection is 100%. It’s also a crowd pleasing fragrance I got a lot of compliments on it."
Fragrantica - " At first I smell honey, sooo much honey and sweetness. It’s like the whole bottle is dripping in honey. But then I get the bitterness of the orange, a lot of tuber rose and a small hint of something like cherry liquor. Beautiful combination with the honey, but still pretty sickly sweet... after a couple of hours wearing this I get vanilla, so much vanilla and I really like that. I’m a vanilla girl! As it dries down more and more the vanilla shows. The longevity is amazing, probably top 3 longevity in my collection. Silage is great too, I’m usually an oversprayer, but this I only spray two times and I’ve gotten compliments from people being pretty far away from me. Although this is a pretty scent, it’s probably not a safe blind buy."
Fragrantica - "Exact DNA of the original. I'm ensure why anyone would say they're totally different. They're not. They have that same honey base. But the original Scandal honey note is way way stronger. By night is softer, more wearable, and a bit creamier. I definitely prefer this one. The vanilla is more noticeable in the dry down , whereas in the original honey overtakes everything. I had a love hate relationship with the original. I wanted to like it, but I had to force myself. By Night brings the balance I was looking for."
Fragrantica - "On my skin I get this tasty, warm cherry pie with honey syrup. When it starts to get almost "creamy", thanks to the vanilla note, a hint of something fresh, probably the bitter orange, enters to remind you this is not a yummy dessert but a very feminine, sexy and seductive fragrance. Great performance."
