Much expected and ..
and then get a scent sample.
He was suggested to me when they talked about Tom Ford's Oud Wood.
According to the motto: "You want real Oud? Then go for Midnight Oud instead of Oud Wood."
So I bought a bottling and compared both: clearly Midnight Oud is much spicier and more distinctive. In my eyes, actually no Unisexparfum at all, because I find it really very smoky.
However, I must say that I personally (just in direct comparison to Oud Wood) find it a little too hard for you me. You certainly have to dose it sparingly, but I almost had the feeling as if I had been sitting at the campfire for hours and my clothes were now smelling a little smoky. So rather unpleasant.
I believe that it is also a type question to which person he fits well.

Conclusion: very smoky / spicy, but I prefer to stay with Oud Wood

strange but great
Complicated aroma, nothing to do with any perfume I have, oriental included. The smell of pimento at the exit is very prominent, then it softens, the spices appear. I don't know very well what the oud smells like, but I do notice the frankincense, very smoky notes, the earthy aroma of patchouli, a light sweet tone that should be the cystus. The truth is that the more I smell it the more I like it. Now we only have to try it when I have the chance since it is a perfume that costs to find the situation to dress it.

Ordered from India at the world’s biggest auction page.
For 48AUD this is the best choice.
In my country(HU) you barely get mainstream designer fragrances for that price, and they are only 30ml.

I’ve heard a lot about Amouage Perfumes, and dreamed to get one of it.
In Parfumo found this, as the best alternative.

Firstly I purchased a roll-on bottle for bucks(maybe 5€ incl. shipping from UK). It wasn’t as potent as attars of other arabian perfumeries, but it’s complexity amazed me at first sniff.

To my birthday decided to get the EDP spray version, and didn’t regret buying it.
It’s performance beats any designer perfumes I’ve got in my collection.

Safe blind buy. If you are interested in, don’t hesitate.

Happby birthday herkules!

Magic love
After the many reviews on oud fragrances here, it was clear to me: need something like this!
Curiosity overpowered me and led me to a blind buy! Like so many times. If you read here very attentively and also look at the respective users then more exactly and look at their collection, that is for me meanwhile the approach to buy a fragrance. So correct Klogriff (Knize Forest perhaps) was not yet thereby..
I also find it very exciting! Did the research go well, too? How's that gonna smell now? As with film adaptations of books...
I wouldn't do that with expensive fragrances starting at 100 €. Only at 25 € in online trading? Who cares a fuck?
So press the buy me button!
When the parcel arrived, I was first of all totally surprised by the really high-quality presentation and the bottle! This performance is fantastic!
What about the scent? Baby, the scent??
So because I don't know any other oud scent, I don't find any cross-references now either... So please don't stone me who this one can still be topped.
So now we're going right into the clouds!
Are you disturbed?
Is there?
An incredible club!
The first time Kouros and Gucci pour Homme (2007) I had a similar club experience!
Mighty Geil!
The first thing that went through my brain was:
"I just want to fuck myself!"
For me an incredibly sensual and hallucinatory fragrance!
So that's Oud! Yay! That's what I need!
Also don't find any associations to it, because I smelled Oud for the first time!
Thank God this club will ebb pretty soon and the drydown is wonderful for me! Very Vannille-heavy and also some incense!
Sandalwood even perceptible to me.
Very, very erotic. However, the club feeling gives way to a wonderfully warming feeling. Security that at the same time holds the promise of a wild night!
And not as strongly polarizing as you first thought!
And yes, I admit it openly! Addicted to this scent!
Can I recommend this fragrance without reservation? Necessary
A bean counter with a stick in his ass who has to read a book to flirt with strange women is definitely not in the target group! Neither is a boy!
The scent is really sex!
And sex is one of those things... So the scent doesn't go with a quickie, not with a beer-bellied Teuton in Thailand, not with flower sex and not with any narcissistic porn gerackere...
The fragrance matches the sex that fuses. Where tenderness leads to ecstasy. Where desire ends in deep security.
Accordingly, the fragrance is also limited in portability.
Not in the office. Certainly not on shift. Rarely at home!
Often at special evenings with the sweetheart.
Always on an adventure! Always with the woman who conquers your heart!
If someone wants to do a test run with Oud: 100% recommendation!
Price and performance are overwhelming!!!!

Incredibly complex
Where do I start
I heard a lot about Amouage Interlude and one day I went to the perfumery and tested it.
I have to say, I honestly found it really disgusting on the test strip.
Then I read about midnight oud and thought, okay, give the whole thing a chance for that bit of money,
So I bought it.

When the perfume arrived, I was extreeeeeeeem curious.
The packaging is a tribute to amouage.
It looks very similar to the whole thing.
The golden plaque reminds of tom ford
The logo on amouage
The bottle itself, valuable, heavy, the lid also heavy and valuable.
Unbeatable for the price class.

So now a spray on the arm and it came back as with amouage

The opening

Extremely blatant smoky odor.
You can smell incense. Extreme.
But after a few minutes

Dry Down

One smells the incense, and yet something sweet is slowly coming.
I'm waiting anxiously ...

After several hours then slowly

It gradually gets sweeter and sweeter and reminds me personally of tabacco vanillie by tom Ford.
As the previous speaker said, the incense can be smelled all the time, but it dies off a bit after several hours, so that the base appears well.
I must say by now
I love it!

It really is a very complex scent of herbaceous, smoky and sweet notes.
Who should dare thus the blinkauf, waits also if it takes, he becomes after the time extremely horny!!!
Price performance is unbeatable.
Regarding durability I have to say that the fragrance is still perceptible even after a good 8 hours of work.

Clear recommendation to buy

"Schorsch, it burns!"
Recently in an allotment garden in southern Hesse. Schorsch, a proud new tenant of a piece of land, shows his friend Heiner his realm and shows him around.
Heiner: "Such a beautiful piece of Gadde hasde now?! Isch bin rischdisch jealous!"
Schorsch: "Come on, Heiner, you should always come and visit! Awwer would be dearest to me, when the first mol would help me to clear the whole Kerschel away from the previous owner. The gonze is in the hut, that's where the gonze is. I'll get you out of this, and you'll be in a bunch. Maybe we could use some more ebbes dadevon..."
Heiner: "Ei gud, ich stell misch in Bosition!"

Schorsch disappears into the hut, his friend takes a stand between the hut and a piece of lawn.

Schorsch:" Look emol, here comes a whole swing full of wood. Oops! E bissi of it is already quite hollow and wishy?! The hugely funny!"

Schorsch hands Heiner a load of exotic woods that smell a little unusual. Heiner lays them out extensively on the lawn.

Schorsch: "Now we're getting some funny leather stools. Ha, there's a camel in there! That can moin brother hawwe, the basst! Ah, the hodd only three Baa left, mer could not need more..."

Heiner receives the stool and places it on the wood. Unfortunately the thick leather of the seat upholstery bursts open and the sawdust filling spreads over the stack of wood that has already come to rest there.

Schorsch: "Now comes a funny bun, there's something about 'Afghan' in it. Is that maybe dog hair?"

Heiner takes the bag with indefinable content and carefully sniffs at it.

Heiner: "The awwer doesn't even riescht after dog. My forest dud annerst riesche!"
Schorsch: "Your Waldi is also a Daggel! An Afghan is an exotic dog! It's also exodic!

Heiner carefully places the bag with indefinable contents on the heap. In the meantime it has become hot and the sun is burning. In southern Hesse, too, one has recently to come to terms with extremely high temperatures.

Heiner: "It's become very hot! Hammer still much?"
Schorsch: "Naa, a lot of yarn. There's another dipper here, there's something in there. Mmmhh, caramel!"
Heiner: "What do you do then? You're not going to nibble, are you? Who was how long of the already there leije dud! Think of your train!"

Schorsch hands him the pot outside and wipes the caramel remains off his mouth with a handkerchief.

Schorsch: "Now we have more than just a bit of savory cabbage and irschend so e Zeusch was mei Mardda always in the Spaghettisoß' dud."

Heiner also receives this load of some dehydrated green stuff and puts it on the pile. That seems to be it.

Oh, not at all.

Schorsch: "Here's another huge Zidrone!"

Heiner also puts them on the pile and stops pondering for a moment in front of it. The hot sun burns shimmering from the sky, a big bird draws its circles. It's quiet, only a few crickets can be heard. Suddenly Heiner seems alarmed. He gets closer to the stack and finds horrified:

"Schorsch, there's a fire!!"

Schorsch comes shot out of the hut and now both stand in front of a blazing fire. All the beautiful treasures burn and smoke in front of you, whole swaths run through the garden.

Schorsch: "Don't worry about it. The whole rubbish was so gudd together, that we put us now danewwer unner de Sonnescherm!"
No sooner said than done. Now both sit peacefully in the shade, have a ribbed one in their hands, drink apple wine and inhale with relish and relax the sweet smoke that rises from all the treasures.
And if they haven't gone home, then they're still sitting today...

First a small apology to the inclined readers from the region mentioned above:
I have tried to reproduce my second mother tongue somewhat true to the original, but as with dialects, there are no fixed orthographic rules.
Be indulgent with me ;)

Midnight Oud was a spontaneous blind purchase on my part and probably one of the best I have ever made. Schorsch and Heiner have put everything I can smell on their pyre in reverse order, but I have to say quite clearly, it actually smells like smoke all the time. It is sweet smoke (caramel), which is accompanied at the beginning by something citrus. Asparagus herb and oregano are, in my opinion, just one aspect of the special oud used here, combined with really good incense. The herbaceous note disappears later, the incense woodiness remains. I also mean to smell out some cumin, but only briefly and quite weakly, so he didn't find his way to the pile. But there is something single and animal about it, which remains the same during the whole development, but is rather weak. The scent lasts on my skin about 8 hours, but becomes very close after three hours. But before he does, he'll burn down everything he's got! I advise all lovers of smoky-woody-sweet oud scents to test, the quality is excellent and the price is "hot"!
