Midnight Oud is a fragrance that has to be experienced. I can tell you how FABULOUS it smells, and that it is one of the nicest Oud's i have. I recommend applying about 1/2 hr before you go out. Although I do not think it is a strong scent, when it dries down a bit it is even more fabulous. How nice ? I was a a car dealership and when I left, a woman came running after me to ask what perfume I was wearing. Same at the office; when I pass by fellow employees I am frequently told how nice a "wake" I leave. Buy it - you'll love it !!! Oh, added bonus, the packaging is also beautiful and one bottle will last you quite a while.
