Memoir Woman presents an interpretation of the timeless narrative between men and women, a deep impulsion that is easily succumbed to and laden with desire. A chronicle of tension, flux and interconnectedness. With this mythical chypre scent, the Memoir Woman is enthralled by the enigmatic motion of her alter ego. Shadowy, smoky, and dark, this is the transcendental discovery of her past, present and future. Top Notes: Mandarin, Cardamom, Absinth, Pink Pepper Heart Notes: Pepper, Clove Bud, White Blossoms, Rose, Jasmine, Dark Wood, Frankincense Base Notes: Styrax, Oakmoss, Castoreum, Leather, Labdanum, Fenugreek, Musk

A Middle Eastern interpretation of 'Chypre'
Date:30 October 2014
Location: Spain
Age: 19-29
Gender: Female
'Memoir' by the house of Amouage is not the usual Arabic perfume dominated by oud and rose. Rather, it is one of those unique creations which have personality of their own.
It is a story in a bottle which commences with the spiciness of wormwood, cardamom and pink pepper counterbalanced by the crisp citrus note. Slowly, the course of the tale changes for a more full-bodied, yet sensual, combination of clove, French labdanum and incense dominated by leather, musk and animalistic notes from the base.
This masterpiece creates a veil around its possessor which lasts up to 12 hours or more depending on the chemistry of one's skin. It is an addictive indulgence which can be likened to opium. The perfume creates an aura of enigma captivating everyone in its environment.
Those who like Opium by Yves Saint Laurent will certainly appreciate the distinctive splendor of this perfume. Another outstanding masterpiece by the same house would be 'Epic'.
Finally, given the great sillage of this scent it is highly recommended for cold autumn and winter days.

The veiled fugitive unleashes her Midnight Oud like a weapon of intoxication, enveloping her assailants in a cloud of heady smoke. This Oud mixes with the abundant Moroccan Rose blooms in the palace gardens, and precious saffron from the kitchens. The air is filled with this incredible scent, and in an instant the entire palace is bewitched. Midnight Oud is a velvety, encompassing scent that captivates the senses, and with its precious elixir the renegade Juliette disappears into the night. Notes: Moroccan Rose, Saffron, Oud, Amber, Woods.

This is a lovely oud scent, which is a great alternative to the house of Montale. It is reminiscent of Kilian Hennessy's Rose Oud.
For those, who know what oud fragrances are like, certainly know the medicinal note which strikes one at the beginning.
However, with Midnight Oud this is not the case, the first ten minutes are rather gentle before the actual dry-down. This is when the beauty of the fragrance starts evolving. Overall, it is a great perfume for both women and men.
Certainly, one has to be familiar with oud, therefore, I would suggest to get a sample before purchasing. For those, who are not sure about oud, please, see my recommendation below.
Finally, the longevity is not bad either. It last about 5 hours on my skin.
