A perfume of distinction. Nuit de Bakélite is avant-garde and alluring, featuring the addictive quality of Tuberose with green and woody notes of Angelica Flowers and Galbanum. It is the premise of a narcotic lady with vintage undertones. A reference to the plastic known as Bakélite – the first entirely synthetic plastic, emerging in the early 1900’s. Bakélite made its biggest impact in the world of fashion from the 1920’s – 1950’s and is now considered collectible. Bakélite items are stamp on a time in history – a vintage world of glamour and style. The fusion of the heady and sensual Tuberose, green and almost smoky notes then the synthetic plastic feel create a truly unique perfume reminiscent of the smell of a beautiful vintage lipstick. This perfume conjures an image of a secret tryst in the garden, the wee hours of the morning – the Tuberose is strong and intense, the grass is slightly damp, the smudge of lipstick, the soft touch of leather.

HOW IT WEARS
Nuit de Bakélite wears incredibly well – all of Naomi Goodsir’s fragrances are Eau de Parfum, yet this one is very concentrated and the silage is strong. We find 2 sprays are all that you need and the scent lasts all day, sometimes exceeding 8 hours.
We love the versatility of Nuit de Bakélite – in one second it is heady, gorgeous Tuberose and feels sensual and glamorous. We get pin up vintage vibes then at the same time the green, almost damp feel comes in with the plastic tones and a slightly smoky, earthy depth and this fragrance becomes incredibly unisex. A truly unique scent that makes an impact!
