Pierre Guillaume makes exoticness seem so easy and simple with his creations of the Private Collection. They use exotic themes as an starting point to do what he does best, with some creativity  freedom to match the theme with the execution. On L'Oiseau de Nuit you'll not get any animalic note that may evoke a rare bird; this bird seems to come from a place where sugared aromas are so abundant that his feathers got drenched on it.

The first moments on skin reveals a fruity davana with a liqueur aspect and the already mentioned sugared impression. It's the most gourmand moment of the fragrance, and it's fastly supported by the cozy smokiness of benzoin here, more incensed than the usual vanillic and coumarinic impression that this note gives. The benzoin is wrapped on leather and labdanum, with the labdanum creating a resinous creamy aura and a discreet powderiness. Leather is quite challenging here, being presented more with a ambered-patchouli face than a leathery one, one that lasts a long period of time on skin.

L'Oiseau De Nuit does a compact exotic aura, that may suggest night occasions but that is suitable on colder days. It's cozy and simple, maybe too simple sometimes from a night bird inspired fragrance. It could have been better worked to reveal more facets, but it's simplicity is able to deliver the theme with a consistency that is not common lately.
