Like a so far unknown, exotic potion, the new Montale creation blends the dark spiciness of aoud with the bright piquancy of red pepper, creating an almost edible effect. The lusciousness of the spicy accord is enhanced by the presence of saffron and cumin…We can't help but admire the balanced, harmonious quality of the perfume. The scent that could have been too sharp is softened by delicate orris and sweet sandalwood. The presence of these truly classic notes takes Red Aoud from the realm of foodie and turns it into an abstractly gourmand, sublimely sophisticated perfume. Addictive!... No, make it aphrodisiacal!

I just love this sticky jammy oud. It has an almost gourmand feel to it and I love the gobs of sandalwood I pick up from it. Give it a minute to open up and you’ll be addicted! Impressive sillage and days of longevity, Red Oud is a real winner! Spray with caution, this stuff is strong!
strong and sexy if that is your thing
The rose and oud are both tempered so they do not come across as loud or cloying and the gourmand touch adds a little softness. Enjoyed more from a distance with slight whiffs. This is not full bottle worthy for me but I will occasionally enjoy the decant.
