Reviews of Aoud Velvet

Overindulgently honeyed floral backed by sandalwood and some dry wood notes posing as oud. I thought I spotted a bit of vanilla lurking in the background, but now I’m convinced it was my mind playing tricks.
The emphatic sweetness of the floral notes is the main feature of Aoud Velvet, which is another blaster from Montale, nothing velvety about it. White floral notes are declared but the concentration is so syrupy that they could just as easily be rose – the sugar kick warps everything.
I would recommend this to lovers of excess – but alas there are far more accomplished perfumes available in that category. This is all a bit too auto-tuned to truly satisfy.

Identical to several other ouds by Montale, half floral/half oud, soft, velvety in fact, but nothing more, if you are familiar with their other ouds, the same applies here with basically no variation - not implying it's bad, I just don't get why putting so many identical/almost-identical scents on the market.

Some of Montale scents smell as if they use some synthetic ouds, and some smell as there is some real oud ,at least in fractions,this one smells really terribly synthetic, right from the opening, and reminded me of Beloved , Amouage. Its too sweet, even sweeter then Mukhallat, this resembles many fruity sweets on the market, smells like it wants to appeal to mass market, is likable but terribly synthetic

This is Montale's voyage into the gourmand. Opening with a warm fruity combination, it doesn' get overly cloying due to a balance with some oud/amber note. After a bit, the Tonka and vanilla combine to form a warm gourmand with fruit. Nice longevity, a cool/cold weather fragrance due to the vanilla and tonka.

I get a mix of floral and nondescript fruity notes, coupled with medicinal aoud. I don’t think this one works too well.

According to Luckyscent: Oud, Ylang-ylang, orange blossom, tiare, vanilla, tonka bean, sandalwood.
For my nose aoud-shot in the beginning isn't restrained at all. It presents oneself in no time, as a leading instrument in an orchestra. No manner of doubt - this gonna be a ruthless beauty, unforgettable, and unique. And then comes the show: enthralling, rich white flowers with the sweetest oriental base. The whole juice is so bizarre, 'cose you are starting to crave after something unattainable. I just simply want to eat myself every time I wear this.
The real beauty of this scent develops in an hour. Warm, voluptuous, deep, refined.
I would say it is a fruity floral rather than a floral woody musk. I dont know what causes the fruitiness, but it has some kind of similarity with Chinatown from Bond, or Miss Dior Cherie..... with the recognizable quality from Master Pierre of course.
