Beaming, Intense Ylang-Peach and Rubbery Oud
Micallef Night Aoud opens with medicinal, rubbery oud, and intense, extremely concentrated fruity ylang and peach. The execution of the latter reminds me of the similar narcotic ylang-jasmine opening of Guerlain Samsara extrait and Areej Le Doré Flux de Fleur for example, but in Night Aoud, these undiluted fruity floral sweetness is further paired with the rubbery oud, resulting in a saccharine, synthetic feeling to my perception.

As the intensity of the fragrance gradually diminishes when heading into the dry down, the overwhelming sensation of synthetic sweetness becomes more manageable with time. The oud takes on a fuzzy warmth akin to saffron and its funky woodiness is relegated to the background. The main branch on which the bright sweetness of ylang and peach cling, is now a high-pitched, slightly camphorous patchouli. Although it’s still not enough to temper the sweetness, at least it doesn’t automatically conjures the artificial impression as the combination of oud’s rubberiness and fruity floral sweetness does for me.

Night Aoud becomes more and more enveloping towards the end, thanks to the steady, cocooning warmth of sandalwood, although the sharp fruity sweetness of ylang and peach never truly leaves. The sillage is moderate to soft, and the longevity is around 9 hours.

Curiously, Night Aoud doesn’t feel that dark to me, as its name might suggest. The beaming sweetness of ylang and peach actually makes it feel quite bright and cheerful. The contrast between rubbery oud and hedonistic fruity floral is also an interesting idea, although in practice, the overall effect translates being too synthetic and saccharine for my taste. If you can handle intensely fruity sweetness and are looking for a joyful rendition of oud, Night Aoud might worth a try.

Wonderful Spiritual Smell;
One of the most beautiful Aouds I know. Because of the fruitiness, this aoud is not so dark and serious. It is an oriental fragrance with fruit (peach) but also beautiful woody tones. The drydown is great. You imagine yourself in an oriental fairy tale and it really touches you in your soul. The bottle is also beautiful. M. Micallef makes beautiful Aoud fragrances. I am really in love with this smell.
