Tory Burch constantly reminds us of her love for the sea, whether it’s by transporting us to the French Riviera with her classic fragrance Bel Azur, or over to the Mediterranean with the latest scent, Nuit Azur. If there’s one thing better than the summer heat by the beach, it’s the smell of the after-sun air ready to invite us to swim under the stars.
Nuit Azur captures just that feeling. The perfume opens with top notes of violet leaf, fig, and Sicilian mandarin; followed by a bloom of floral facets of pink peony, freesia, orange flower, and jasmine sambac at the heart of the fragrance. Lastly, cedarwood and musk sneak in at the base, transitioning the scent of a bright day into the night. Blending in floral, citrusy, and sensual notes, Tory Burch’s Nuit Azur introduces a bold scent—a welcome to summer after a cold, long winter.
Burch teamed up with Estée Lauder to create the new fragrance, and her hands-on involvement is vital — every new scent represents a part of her life. For Nuit Azur, the 51-year-old business woman and philanthropist drew from spending time at the beach as a child — a tradition she keeps alive today with her three sons.
Ahead, Tory Burch chats with us about the new scent, what her day looks like at the beach, and her ideal summer getaway.
