A Night to Remember: Liquidnight from A Lab on Fire

The night is heavy with promise: food, fun, kicking up my heels with my best pals before a late rendezvous with my sweetheart. 

I want to look and feel my best, so a hot shower followed by a splash of eau de cologne, whose light bergamot and lime with a touch of saffron will ensure I stay crisp and clean-smelling, no matter where the evening takes me. 

The wardrobe: black, of course. Chic, mysterious and equally at home in a casual pub, a trendy restaurant or a lively nightclub. I choose my best pieces for tonight—the richest fabrics, the most flattering cuts, the perfect jacket to complete my sexy ensemble. 

Friends beckon. Hurry, hurry! The night awaits us!  

We charm the doorkeeper and glide through the velvet rope, having secured a table at the trendy lounge that has a line of hopefuls stretched around the block.  Small plates with savory and spicy snacks will be our only dinner tonight—our stomachs are already filled with the butterflies of anticipation. The sage biscuits and fine cheese are complimented perfectly by …what's that unusual herbal taste? Fresh lavender gently muddled with gin. Lovely.  

It's later now, but the night is still young. After a short walk in the brisk night air, we stumble across the grand opening of a new nightclub. We can still smell the fresh-cut wood and sawdust of recent construction work when we get inside. Colored lights swirl and dazzle us and a hot beat pulses from the sound system. The excellent DJ spins our favorite tunes and we dance with each other, with strangers, or alone, buoyed along by the music.

A text arrives: "Where are you?" My sweetheart! I reply back with the name of the new club. 

Time means nothing here. Have minutes passed? Hours? I am at the bar getting a mineral water when my beloved arrives.  Hugs, a discrete kiss.  

"Missed you."

"Missed you, too. Wanna get out of here?"   

A resounding yes. We say goodbye to friends and make our way out the door and into a cab. The coziness and quiet of home is a welcome relief from the noise and activity of crowded bars and energetic nightclubs. We light incense to create a mellow romantic mood, snuggle up on the sofa and …

… awaken there the next morning, having fallen asleep in the comfort of each other's arms. The aromas of last night's adventures still linger on my skin, mingling softly now with the scent of vanilla pancakes from the kitchen and the clean musk of freshly-washed linens on the bed that will give us more restful sleep after our breakfast. 

It was definitely a night to remember.
 

Dear readers, I am in my 40s and it has been quite some time since I've had a night like this. If I ever had a night like this.  :-)  Fortunately, I don't have to lose a good night's sleep or risk a hangover to experience this kind of adventure. If I didn't already think Carlos Benaim was a genius (which I pretty much did—the man has been presenting us with wonderful and many now-iconic fragrances since the 1970s), Liquidnight has thoroughly convinced me. 

Liquidnight, the newest fragrance from A Lab on Fire, captures so perfectly the allure of the night world, and best of all, the night will go on and on—Liquidnight lingers on the skin for 12 hours or more, with moderate sillage. This warm and woody-spicy fragrance is multi-layered, thoroughly unisex (note that I carefully avoided gender-specific pronouns in the story above), and is ideal for the crisp, cool nights of autumn or the chilly nights of the festive holiday season.  

Thank you to A Lab on Fire for the generous gift of this scent.  Read more about this company in our encyclopedia or visit the offical website to explore and purchase.

This house makes really interesting and very wearable perfumes of a good quality. I also love their packaging, it's simple, but it's very well done, every detail.

Fabulous review, Jodi. I bought this lovely fragrance for myself about a week ago and I love it so much. It is really amazing. When I wear it I feel like I've been out clubbing with my honey (clubbin' in a good way, without the hangover and the tired feet). Wonderful juice!
