Aoud Cuir d'Arabie fragrance notes

Reviews of Aoud Cuir d'Arabie

The grossest perfume I've ever fallen for.

It's got that Montale oud that smells like moldy old medicine, burning rubber, and band aids. There's also a Tuscan Leather-esque leather note, sweet berries on top, and a ridiculous amount of civet, so it's REALLY fecal.

In a way, I think this is one of those scents that's kind of awful that perfume snobs are supposed to like, but behind that is the basic fact that this is just so ridiculous that it stands out from all the repetitive perfumes out there that endlessly copy each other, so in a purely figurative way, it's refreshing to smell.

One more story: I once wore this in an Uber and spent the whole ride thinking that my driver was releasing secret little farts but it ended up being my Aoud Cuir d'Arablie fumes, so it's probably not best for closed spaces...

Not my cup of tea at all. As Francolino described it in his review; "skanky cheesy". This has a leather component, but it smells too artificial to my nose, and the oud is a rude and sour background element. Cuir D'Arabie needs something to freshen it and sweeten it up. I can understand why so many Montale's Aoud fragrances have a floral or honey spice element. Typically Montale fragrances open harsh, and then settle into something nicer for a long duration. CD'A does not. It stays pretty awful for a long time. I washed it off after three hours. A thumbs down.

the twin cousin of Dior Leather Oud, skanky cheesy kinky oud!

I don't consider myself much of a leather lover but Montale's Aoud Cuir d'Arabie is well-blended to the point of being very appealing, among the best I've smelled of the house. It's a mix of leather, oud, birch, and tobacco. The oud makes the experience animalistic, but it's unusually smooth at the same time, blending well with the woody birch and pungent leather.

The leather itself is most pronounced at the opening, fading into the dry down within the first hour and a half. I get only a little tobacco in the dry down, which I would classify is as blend of the leather, oud, and birch. It's a baseball-love-meets-oud sort of mix.

It's not the smoothest leather (a prize I'd still give to Coach Leatherware No. 3), but it might be the smoothest animalistic oud leather, much smoother than I've previously imagined such a type of fragrance being, so it's a pleasant surprise. Still, I can see how it might be polarizing since I confess that animalic scents tend to be hit-or-miss with me.

Performance is well above average, as with most cold-weather Montale fragrances, very strong in both projection and longevity.

This is leather. Leather is this.

Masculine, with no 'pretty' character at all.

I like it just fine, but tbh it's hard to see any skill or craftsmanship behind this one. Seems like one could rather come close enough by contacting a perfumery supply, getting some leather accord and mixing it with some everclear. Well maybe not that easy, but still...

Yes, an opening of harsh nigh faecaloid freshly tanned leather, with lots of birchtar and heavy oud. In the drydown a touch of Latakia-style tobacco, but after a couple of hours much tamer and developing into pleasant lighter leather and a bit less original.

A unique beginning. Good projection and sillage with about eight hours of longevity.

A very interesting Montale. 3.75/5
