Night and Day was available in parfum, eau de toilette and eau de cologne, as well as lipstick.
The perfume was recommended to be worn by the "exotic, vibrant Latin type."
So what does it smell like? It was classified as a spicy floral perfume and was based on orchids. I have no published notes on this composition. I would need a sample to tell you what it smells like.
- Top notes: aldehydes, citrus notes, clove
- Middle notes: orchid, carnation
