Midnight Promise: A Perfume with a Story
Every good perfume should inspire a beautiful love story. If you head to the Bellegance Midnight Promise site, you can read the story of this perfume.

Sofia promised she’d find a way to celebrate with him, even if he was on the other side of the world. As Jack was strolling the Ponte Vecchio Bridge in Florence, Italy, he was gazing wistfully at all the names of lovers throughout the years. Suddenly, he caught the aroma of Sofia’s perfume. Could it be? Was she really there? Read the story and find out!
