This is a really complex scent with a lot going on. The sweet lime mixes with the incense at first, and after a while, a nice woodsiness comes into play. I enjoy this, but the sweetness is perhaps a bit extreme for my tastes, and it last, on my skin, for a good long time. Well made and well crafted, in my feeling.
Liquid Night could easily be a popular high-end designer fragrance intended for the fall and winter. It has a modern feel and an immediately appealing quality to it along the lines of La Nuit de L'Homme, Allure, or Spicebomb. It definitely seems like an evening fragrance that could be worn in either casual or romantic situations with equal success.
It opens sweet and spicy with a touch of lime. I've noticed that Saffron can often create a 'bubblegum' effect (for example, in Spicebomb), and this is exactly what I get beneath the peppery top. So the opening is spicy (peppery to my nose, though pepper is not listed as a note), and sweet with a marked bubblegum flavor.
As Liquid Night settles in after about 10 or 15 minutes, 4 distinct notes emerge: Hinoki Wood, Incense, Vanilla, and Musk. Hinoki Wood lends a crisp, almost lemony cedar quality to the fragrance which tempers the sweetness well and blends smoothly with the spicy top. It prevents the fragrance from becoming overly sweet and is a welcome addition. The incense is middle-of-the-road (not too ashy, not too smoky) and combined with the vanilla it really helps round out the fragrance. I like the fact that the parfumeur chose a medium to light bodied incense here as it maintains a certain levity, or upbeat quality that could have been ruined by a heavier choice. After all, this seems like a fragrance designed for a social night out--not a night of dark, contemplative brooding!
Beneath everything, the musk gives Liquid Night that final, romantic edge, melding the fragrance with your skin and pushing it just a bit to the mysterious side.
This is not a demanding fragrance, but it's appealing and is actually pretty interesting. There's excellent play between the notes and the inclusion of Hinoki wood makes it unique. In addition, it has a smooth radiance, characterized by a warm transparency which never feels heavy or cloying.
If you're looking for a spicy, woody, vanilla-based fragrance to wear in the evening when you go out, that's easy to pull off but still unique, you should definitely consider taking a look at Liquid Night.
Pros: Smells good, Easy to Pull Off, Pretty Complex
Cons: You may not like the sweet opening
