Midnight Oud vs. Interlude Man
As probably many here, has also grabbed me the curiosity, whether the Midnight Oud, the Interlude Man can offer the forehead. Therefore, I have both tested on two consecutive days.

Applied in the morning in the bathroom, both fragrances have me equally "blown away" in the truest sense of the word. In both fragrances is in the opening such a strong spice, whether oregano or allspice, plus incense, that I have not held out at home in the closed room and had to get out into the fresh air. On the way to work, about 30 min drive it did not get better. The window remained open the entire car ride.

Arrived at work, the spice slowly flattened out on the Midnight Oud. With the Interlude Man it lasts about half an hour longer. Both scents developed very pleasantly, a sweet woody note covered the initial spiciness. My colleague who started about 2 hours after me entered the office both days and perceived both scents equally well. In her opinion, the spiciness of Interlude Man was more noticeable than that of Midnight Oud. For me personally, the scents were identical, but could also be due to the fact that in the first 30 min. everything was burned away in my nose.

Both scents remained pleasant until the evening. The initial fear "how do I get through the day" has consistently turned positive and became more beautiful and feel-good from minute to minute. After about 5 hrs, you noticed the first "drop in performance" with the Midnight Oud. The H/S became a little weaker but still noticeable. The Interlude Man stood his ground all day.

My conclusion: who survives the Opening, has a beautiful scent on him all day :) For the Interlude Man speaks the slightly stronger / better H / S. For the Midnight Oud clearly the price. From the fragrance does not do much.

So best to own both :D

Inter(l)oud :D
Midnight oud is often compared to Interlude Man in every review. The comparison is absolutely permissible and justified. In my opinion, the two fragrances smell identical. I was allowed to smell Interlude Man for the first time at the airport in Istanbul. It really blew me away, especially because it was 35° outside. I find it exciting that it didn't bother me then either. People always say that heavy scents are rather unpleasant in summer or in the heat. If you ever go to southern countries, you experience exactly the opposite. But enough of Interlude :D

Midnight Oud is a heavy and resinous fragrance. The opening is etwasch sharper than Interlude, but the drydown is softer and more pleasant for me. It experiences its real magic after one to two hours. That was also the feedback of the people around me. The longevity is bombastic. The sillage is also not to be misjudged, but long not as blatant as Interlude. However, I find that to be an advantage.

P/L is the thing unbeatable. New he costs about 30 €. Could get hold of him here in the souk for a stable 15 €. For these prices you get really seh much.
The bottle is beautiful massive. But there are probably different versions. I got the one with the fabric decoration around the crown. Looks a bit strange, but can be tolerated :D

Incense burns the nose
So when applying to the next 1.5-2.5 hrs shoots me the spice, the incense everything so so through the nose as if I had drawn pepper (negative). It virtually crushes one !

Funnily enough, the smell after 3 hrs but veryrr pleasant, sweet woody. For me personally it takes too long until it becomes pleasant. I can imagine but that this fragrance fits to a ü40 man, but nothing for a 20 year old!

Midnight beast
Some strong s*t
Definitely recommend for those who want interlude but for a fraction of the price.
Lasts all day. 2 sprays max cause you can get a headache. Smells like sweet bonfire if that makes sense. Have a shower and the smell still don't go. Value for money for sure. Interlude bottle is amazing and this is not so good but regardless of the bottle, the contents is what matters most.

The game of Clones
I was positively surprised about how identical to Interlude was this fragrance the first time I tried it from the opening to the last second of dry down. the battle of spices in this fragrance made it one of the most manly fragrance ever created, one of the most powerful ones and paying only 20€ for a 100 ml bottle ( that will accompany you for two or three winters ) make it more agreeable.
Note that this is one of the rare clones in the fragrance world having a higher rating than the original :))
Highly highly recommended!

First what? And then wow!
In the first 2 minutes the spicy part with allspice&oregano shoots through the air so much that you can't miss the scent. Accompanied by an incense cloak, he literally shouts in the whole room: "Make way, I'm here!"
Granted... The opening's not for everyone. But as soon as the sharpness fades a little bit, the amber starts to tickle your nose together with something shaky and you just want more and more !
Mysteriously the scent conquers my surroundings and suddenly I think to myself: "Wait a minute! What is it?"
THAT IS OUD. Simply a hammer as it develops mixed with the other fragrances! An animal, sweet scent with a standing as if it were a big one. Drydown phase is really a dream... and note, that all this with a sprayer !
H/S are super good and the bottle looks very noble.
Sooo, my very first comment. I hope you like it
Let's GO !

Too much gayness and caramel!

Midnight Oud is an oriental scent, which despite oud and frankincense is rather soft and sweet. Compared to 'Oud Mood' by Lataffa for example (similar scent, similar origin, same price range), which I also own, Midnight Oud is much more pompous and has less edges and corners, not to mention animalism. What bothers me most is the sweetish-creamy caramel note that runs through the entire fragrance. This gives the whole fragrance an almost childlike character and eventually becomes too penetrating, in my opinion. Incense, leather and oud, on the other hand, I find very reserved, so that I would definitely like to place the perfume more on the female side.

The shelf life and silage is, as you would expect from an oriental fragrance, extremely good.
But even though Midnight Oud is considered an insiders' tip and a viable alternative to the Amouage Interlude, the scent was unfortunately not quite convincing. As a man I would definitely prefer to go for 'Oud Mood' by Lataffa. This one also has a caramel accord, but much smokier, more masculine and less obtrusive.

Extremely positively surprised...Divided opinion.....
Today the Midnight Oud finally arrived. The bottle and packaging is very similar to Amouage Interlude, which I also own.
While testing I sprayed Interlude on the left and Midnight Oud on the right. The opening of Midnight Oud is for me 95% like Interlude. The fragrance develops temporally in the same way, although Midnight Oud is not quite as intense, although this can sometimes be an advantage. After 4 hours the Midnight Oud weakens a little more than the Interlude. Even after showering I could still perceive the Midnight Oud very well.
I didn't think Midnight Oud would be so well connected to the Interlude. For the price, it's certainly worth considering.
I would buy it over and over again, but the original remains for me on the first place. Price or no price, it's just a knockoff.

Best clone on market for me so far
When i starded my fragrance journey ,I have sampled many clones of different fragrances since and i almost gave up on clones, because they always felt cheap to me. I started to be allergic on reviewers, who hype s... for nothing, you know "this is the 95 % clone of certain fragrance" kinda crap. When i hear this i always remember, that we have 98% DNA common with pigs. Does it mean we are the same? in most cases i don´t think so :D.

BUT !!!! .... this is the only clone of a fragrance i decided to buy a full bottle of after sampling. I have Interlude and this one is so close in mid - phase to the original, that it is scary. This is less pungent verison of it, the heavenly drown of interlude comes here much faster, but it´s not so deep and complex (could be + for some people). You can definitely pick up differences in quality, but if you are into clones, you can´t get much better, this is bomb !!!

Go for EDP (no Oil version, oils just eat the "kick" of spices like oregano)

After you spray, a blast of pepper-oregano and incense hits you. In the dry-down it's calm, vanilla-incensed oud with oregano/pimento touch.

Hallucinatory!! a drier reinterpretation of Interlude Man, with a fairly high performance, highly recommended for oriental lovers.
