The gentle Oriental
First of all, I think it's a shame how this beautiful and fine fragrance is sometimes rated here, makes me a little speechless.... I respect everyone's opinion, but people with an affinity for fragrances notice the subtlety of these individual ingredients. A fine sandalwood is never loud but very delicately caressing and noble. Here, in combination with the ginger, bergamot and coriander, the opening is a little cheeky and tangy and arouses curiosity. After a good 10 minutes, it settles down and becomes incredibly harmonious and warm. This beautiful woody note with the amber is like an embrace full of closeness and delicate sensuality. Wonderful who smells so inviting. Very carefully in the background, the slightly floral jasmine comes to the fore but only to give this fragrance a subtle nuance of femininity. I think it goes well with both men and women, for people who love dark, earthy scents and who are always a little mysterious themselves. The expression of gentle oriental with the sandalwood in combination with amber and cardamom suits me perfectly. It lasts a good 6 hours on me and is pleasantly close to the body - not one of those gasp-inducing scents. I think this brand has easily made the leap into the noble water ranks and I am looking forward to testing more perfumes from this new series. My fragrance recommendation for people who appreciate fine fragrances with the highest quality ingredients that put the wearer in the foreground in a gentle and noble way and thus show a never disturbing presence. Price with 100 ml is 120 Euro, beautiful black bottle almost a little Artdeco.

Even the confusion is confused
Midnight Sandal ... oh how nice that sounds, I thought to myself when I read that a new fragrance was coming from 4711. It sounded interesting, promising, although I wasn't expecting a club, but something flattering, subtle, nothing, for the approaching night, after a long shower ... and then jumping warmly into a freshly made bed. Oh yes! That's it!

Instead, I get an indefinable shower gel trauma here - too much synthetic citrus plum meets bitchy woody notes that smear so much that you could figuratively prepare fried eggs on greasy hair. It also smells a little like toilet stone. A light, discreet sprinkling of vetiver, which sinks into a pale sea of heliotrope. I can detect some ginger, but it is only a milky trace that runs through this perfume. It's all rather jelly-like, halting. Even the confusion is confused here.

I absolutely agree with ParfumAholic, with his statement. It's a mega flop and totally full of plastic stuff. Even the thoughts are clouded with synthesis.

The only good thing about it is that this concoction (sorry I have to call it that) absolutely doesn't last long. It's like taking a shower with a very cheap shower gel where you don't really know where all the ingredients come from. I'm super disappointed - the name is beautifully chosen and I think the bottle is an absolute eye-catcher. But the contents are simply horrible. Not worthy of a good aquatic. For me, it's a fragrance for the quiet room.
