Full Scent Description
Heat of the Night opens with tropical notes to represent the bridge crossed from day to night in paradise. The day was full of sun and surf, mango-coconut milkshakes and an icy vanilla-orange julius. As the sun passes below the horizon, darker more sensual notes of sandalwood and amber merge with a base of Edge of the Night* to overtake the playful memories created while the sun was at full blaze. Heat of the Night progresses into a sultry mysterious fragrance as the memories of the day fade. The delicious fruity top notes recede within about 20 minutes of application, making way for amber and warm sandalwood cloaked in a sweet vanilla tinged with creamy coconut. The deep shadows cast by the Edge of the Night base enrich and intrigue the composition. Heat of the Night may open with a juicy tropical melange, but it leads to a humid ambered-vanilla heavy fragrance best experienced at full dark. A true morpher, this journey is highly recommended applied at dusk.
Heat of the Night is the sixth and final offering in ‘The Night’ line. When crafting Edge of the Night, it was clear that it was a fragrance that could stand on its own but also one that would make an incredible darkly sensual foundation for other oils. Used lightly as a base for Heat of the Night, the end result is a humid rich incense fragrance with tropical nuances. Though you can detect Edge of the Night carefully woven into the Heat of the Night blend, primarily after it has been on the skin for a while, Heat of the Night is its own unique, amber rich fragrance with a sensual musky base, soft woods, cloaked in sweet vanilla and coconut. The Edge of the Night fragrance worn alone manifests a deeper, musky, powdery dry down with a green lift and is mildly spicy as compared to Heat. After several hours of wear, the two fragrances share a similar character though Heat of the Night maintains a more incensey and sweeter character due to the amber and gourmand notes used.
*The notes in the Edge of the Night base for this fragrance include: amber, oakmoss, aged patchouli, bergamot, black vanilla, red musk, buddha wood, organic clove EO, star anise EO, cinnamon and a nominal amount of lavender absolute and oud.
Ingredients: Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Fragrance (may include essential oils).
Size: Approx 5ml packaged in a glass vial with protective box.
Other: Our Perfume oils are all Vegan with the exception of Inquisitor, which contains beeswax absolute.
Application tip: If your roller ball runs dry during application, remove black cap, hold your bottle vertically with roller ball pointing to the ground and forcefully shake/thrust the bottle down one time to replenish the oil in the well. Now it is ready to reapply to your skin.
Storage and Shelf Life
Most of our perfume oils are good for several years. We use rice bran oil as a carrier oil. Due to rice bran’s high anti-oxidant content, it has a very good shelf life.
Storing your oils appropriately will affect the shelf life. Be careful to store your Solstice Scents products, especially perfumes, out of direct sunlight and in a cool place as heat and light can age the products.
Safety Precautions for Pregnant or Nursing Mothers
Solstice Scent’s opinion is to avoid all fragranced and/or essential oil products while pregnant or nursing, especially in the first trimester. You may do your own research on the safety of using perfumes and fragrances while pregnant or nursing. Essential oils, fragrances and absolutes may pass into the bloodstream and may even cross the placental barrier. Not all oils are of concern, but Mothers should be cautious, especially in the first tri-mester. Some essential oils stimulate menstruation, are abortifacient, lower blood pressure and produce a myriad of other effects internally and externally and it is advised you exercise caution and be informed. Products which contain oils that we are aware should not be used while pregnant or nursing contain a warning at the top of the listing, above the description, though we still feel that unscented products are better for pregnant or nursing mothers. You may also wish to spray your perfumes conservatively on clothing instead of wearing them directly on the skin or try a few sprays of Glace combed through your dry hair or a little of the perfume oil rubbed in your hair.
About Solstice Scents
Solstice Scents started serving the local Gainesville, FL area in 2004. We originally sold soap, lotion, salts, candles, body oil, loose hand blended incense powders, dream pillows, eye pillows and neck pillows. We took our orders on order forms printed on parchment paper, hand wrote all of our tags and attached them with satin ribbon and
affixed our familiar mastic tree labels to bottles with rubber cement. Customers were able to select ala carte fresh made items directly off the order form, including customizing candle color or fabric choices. Bath salts were offered in upcycled Monin syrup bottles from the coffee shop Angela used to work at, topped with corks ordered from a wine supplier.
The business has evolved significantly since that time, though the same spirit, inspiration and aesthetic is infused into each item. While we no longer offer custom made items, all products are made with the same attention to detail and in small batches to ensure freshness. Our labels are designed in house with the original mastic tree
logo. The labels are applied by hand to the products. Each fragrance is still handwritten on the product label to this day.
