Smooth incense with woody tones, very nicely done
A Midnight Stroll is my of Gucci’s collection The Alchemist’s Garden and is a lovely dark blend of incense, cypress, and cedar, so it fittingly is incense-dominant but leans wood as well. It’s dark and smooth, reminiscent in execution of By Kilian Incense Oud but fittingly with more incense and less oud. It’s not quite as ashy as Profumum Roma Olibanum—which I usually regard as one of the best incense-dominant fragrances in the market—so it’s an even smoother, slightly more mainstream/designer-esque incense-heavy mix that is nonetheless very wearable and fairly enjoyable, without much bite in the opening.

It performs pretty well overall, and in the US, is sold via the Gucci website and the department stores Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom, and its retailing pricing is $330 for 100ml. Also, I usually don’t gawk over bottle design the look of The Alchemist’ Garden’s bottles, most even more colorful than the black of A Midnight Stroll, are lovely.

Overall, A Midnight Stroll is great, and would certainly be made better by a lower price point, so I’d be curious to see if it’s available anywhere on the secondary market, and I’ll have to seek out some others in The Alchemist’s Garden.

... I breathe out the last big puff of my Parliament cigarette
The cold and humid air mixes with the smell of fresh smoke
Still some few meters I carry the nearly burned cigarette with me and think about it.

About my life, my experiences, the things you survived and what life has in store for you. It's so peaceful... Just the stars, light wind blowing through the old town and me.

This wonderful smell of a cold night slowly but surely drives away that of burnt tobacco and I stroll on out of town, further towards the church. The damp earth and the typical church smell always fill this place with a very calm, even if mysterious aura.

But now it is time to go home. Carelessly I throw the butt on the wet floor and kick it out in passing... The first sunrays of the day still accompany me gently on my way home.

The fragrance really smells like a night walk in the rain. The first few minutes are almost aggressive and pungent smoky, but this quickly subsides and becomes a pleasant incense note. The cypress and cade wood together have an extreme effect on me like this typical smell of a rainy evening in early summer.

It's great for layering. But absolutely as a basis, so that the aggressive cigarette note can be removed
Very mysterious, very masculine at first...
