A doll doctor for intermezzo
There are those brutal people who decapitate their egg with a knife. I can't do that, the sound of the knife rubbing on the shell is awful. I tick the egg and peel off the shell, then lightly cut the white and insert the spoon. I just don't like it when the yolk gets squished out and lost. Is that weird? Definitely!

Intermezzo came to me injured - and also kind of headless. I'm thinking in transit due to a hard impact or just a Monday bottle, the holder for the magnetic closure was no longer attached and I was furious. The day was already crappy and I immediately took out my anger on the dear Parfuma, who sent me this treasure. Sorry again at this point!

Then I bottled me something and put the bottle back in the packaging. A few days later again such a mishap. This time another bottle leaked. So I went to the hardware store, electrical tape and stop, there is also superglue, maybe that works with it, if the electrical tape does not funzt. It didn't work and I had to use superglue. Hm, maybe it also works with Interlude? No sooner said than done - it holds.

Would have been a real shame too, because Interlude smells damn good. Starts fruity with a good portion of ginger.Minimal I also take a kind of polish was, which one uses for furniture or slightly medicinal, somehow hard to explain. Just a very small hint, but that's what makes Interlude special. What fragrance notes that comes from, I could only guess. All the flowers in the scent make it so wonderfully floral, incense gives a very soft smoky note and opoponax makes it slightly powdery. The animalic scents give the fragrance power, it seems. Just like the oud. But I can't smell either. And it feels like there are pickled black nuts in the scent, but again, just a whiff. Leather I do not smell in the fragrance.

The more I wear the scent, the more I like it. I think my rating will still go up.

Spicy ginger tea?
Hello, scented freaks! :)

Today I tell you something about Amouage Interlude, which, as described here, means pause or interlude. So a short and rather simple musical piece, mostly purely instrumental, which is played, for example, between the individual scenes of an opera.

And yes, I had to look that up, because otherwise I know more about the word intermezzo. But although an intermezzo is supposed to be a short scene between larger scenes, both terms today, i.e. interlude and intermezzo, have become colloquially synonyms. But with this wise shit I stop now, before I still write any nonsense, that then in reality not even right is!!:D

That's why I'm coming to the fragrance itself. So whoever reads my description of the scent will surely say that I only liked the scent because it would have reminded me of tea in places, but I assure you, it's not just that! Yes yes, don't believe me, but the scent would have been beautiful even without the scent that reminds me of tea! At least I think... :D

And by the way, I'm already drinking coffee while I'm writing this... Because the tea still needs a while to brew and therefore comes later :DD

The fragrance:
The fragrance begins with ginger and spicy notes. Then I smell a little bergamot, which also reminds me slightly of tea. Grapefruit always flashes up briefly, you can tell her by her sparkling citrus note. Otherwise, there are resinous fragrances such as incense, which have a gentle and airy effect and thus let the dry-looking fragrance of the quickly beginning and initially somewhat intense, but nevertheless nice straw flowers appear softer. From the jasmine comes a (slight) sweetness, and I also smell some leather.
In the heart note the straw flowers seem to smell the strongest, the ginger becomes a little weaker, but otherwise the fragrance still smells as described above, whereby the fragrance appears a little more spicy. I find the tea note mentioned at the beginning even a little stronger later, because the scent smells a little like bergamot-ginger tea, and thus has a little something of Serge Luten's "Five o'clock au gingembre", which is also a ginger tea scent. I think it's nice that the bergamot also looks like lemon and reminds me of a slice of lemon in tea.
Anyway, the base is still slightly citric with tea-like ginger, but meanwhile no longer as spicy and dry as in the middle part of the fragrance, but more gentle and softer, because now the resinous notes smell even better. Benzoin is a major contributor to the ever softening fragrance, but sandalwood and a hint of vanilla are also very effective now. In general, sandalwood and vanilla are almost equally intense, especially in the later base, which is a nice change, as otherwise vanilla is usually the only scent in most fragrances in the later hours that can still be perceived. Oh and Oud is rather small present.
However... the tea note is long gone again later *sigh* :D

The Sillage and the shelf life:
As is often the case with Amouage, the Sillage is very good, as one is immediately enveloped with the first sprayer in a scent cloud that other people can smell very well without having to get too close. And also the durability is quite long with over twelve hours!

The bottle:
The flacon is rectangular, slightly inflated and has areas on the sides that look pressed into the flacon. This bottle is dark blue and looks very nice for me. On the front you can see the golden Amouage logo made of metal. The name of the fragrance was engraved on the gold-plated neck of the bottle. Also gold-plated is the lid, which looks like an oriental roof or spire as usual and carries a blue Swarovski stone. A very nice bottle!

Soo... you know what? According to Amouage's description, this fragrance begins with loud "instruments" such as grapefruit and bergamot, which are supposed to appear chaotic like timpani and trumpets, only to gradually calm down and ring in the peace, the Interlude. Which would mean that the Interlude here is complete peace and quiet, instead of being instrumentally accompanied.

And somehow, this is true. The fragrance begins already "loudly", because it smells quite spicy and intensive at the beginning. And also a little sparkling through citric notes. But then it actually becomes "calmer" as the fragrance progresses, because it becomes softer. The spicy notes are further softened by balsamic notes such as benzoin and incense, until they no longer appear dry and "loud", but a great, gently spicy and woody fragrance, which seems quite pleasant.

And we don't want to forget the tea-like scent, which also contributes to the scent smelling so great :) Or... for me at least that's why it smells so great! Well, you know me, for some reason I just love tea scents or scents that remind me of various teas and I hope the scent here reminds you a bit of tea, if you like such scents too :)

Anyway, Interlude is a fragrance that has become autumnal, but in my opinion it could still be worn well in spring. It has become more of a fragrance for the day, but I think it could be worn well even in the evening. Yes, you should have sniffed at this scent here, because especially because of the ginger note you have a scent here that you don't necessarily encounter every day, so for me the scent doesn't smell 0815 either.

Okay then, have a nice evening and see you soon :)

Bergamot is the common denominator of most fragrances I love, and this one is no exception. But it is not the citrus that captures me as much as the earthy, smoky aura that accompanies the freshness. A possible future purchase; I really like this.

Unfortunately this fragrance is not my cup of tea. People can not write objective reviews, mine is especially biased, so please sample this before you decide.

From the vial it smelled like furniture care lotion. After it we tested. My friend, a lady was complaining, because the scent stayed on her only for a few minutes. After the second test she had the same result. Mine was much worse. Something burned, wood or food, or most probably stubble was sizzling out of my skin, later it turned to another burnt odor with oud, leather and resins, so at the end I had to wash it off. It was strong and stubborn, so we fought, and I won only after a few liters of water and soap. Even so I gave 40% for Interlude Woman, since it is really special.

I can imagine that this perfume works better on men.

A Complete 180
The advance rave reviews of Interlude Woman prompted me to haunt the decant sites until it appeared, and I immediately ordered a good-sized sample. That sample arrived on a ridiculously hot day. Normally I would have avoided testing a heavier fragrance in extreme heat, but in this case I couldn't wait and stupidly sprayed myself with abandon.

My initial reaction was that Interlude was horrific. Out of that huge pyramid of notes the only one that emerged with any distinction was immortelle, a note I loathe. If you've ever lived in a US college dormitory, you're probably familiar with Roach Motels. They are cardboard traps that are coated on the inside with a mixture of maple syrup (to attract the "tenants") and pesticide. This gruesome smell was what Interlude evoked for me. I was tempted to toss the sample but fortunately I didn't.

Once the weather cooled a bit, I decided to give Interlude another shot, and I'm so glad I did. The dreaded immortelle retreated to the background and all the loveliness emerged. I don't know that I ever encountered a walnut note before in perfume but it is delicious, especially in conjunction with the strong coffee aroma that permeates the heart of Interlude. I should tell you that this is not at all a fruity fragrance, despite the presence of kiwi and grapefruit, so don't let that scare you away from trying it. What I found Interlude to be was a warm, woody, tonka-infused fragrance with just a suggestion of rose and incense. Men could wear it just as easily as women, but I do think that it will end up being a fall/winter frag for me if I ever decide to spring for that gorgeous blue bottle.

The juxtaposition of the sweet-sour candied fruit and the complex amber with smoky incense and leather makes me think of Shalimar on LSD.

Definitely a cooler weather scent. It's just sweet enough and mouthwateringly spicy. Looking forward to wearing this in the fall.
