Reviews of Aoud Shiny

Aoud shiny is an accord more than it is a perfume. It is the sharp loud raw aoud accord that is in MOST Montale fragrances. No rose, no fruit, no dirt, it is almost alone the aoud accord. Nice smell...mixed in with other things.

Aoud Shiny is sort of a lowest common denominator among Montales, though definitely not the worst. This is supposedly a rose-oud-patchouli concoction, though I get very little of each. Instead, what largely dominates is sort of a fruity-spicy-woody ‘aoud’ accord, the sort of accord that is bread and butter for Montale. It lacks the exoticism of Black Aoud, and has less depth, and is eventually a little crude and cheap-smelling. I detect a hint of violets and saffron, but mostly very subdued. The dry down becomes less fruity, as more woods come to the fore. It exhibits average sillage and acceptable duration, though slightly below par for Montales.

Aoud Shiny is far from a total disaster, however it brings nothing new to a crowded niche, where it is outshone by many others, including several from Montale. This is more suited towards casual buyers and blind completists.

Yet another rose/oud combo from Montale? You have to be kidding...Rose and aoud with a slight patchouli note and some Violet on top. Not very interesting. Please, give us a break!

Moderately powerful yet long lasting.

Aoud Shiny opens up with a rich Aoud note, that after about 40 minutes, decreases it's intensity and gives way to a floral aspect that in my opinion, makes this fragrance much more appealing to me feminine side than masculine. Anyway, a very linear and long lasting fragrance.

It was a slow evening. Nobody at the bar, the dimly room room light on chatter. But the music was pleasant enough, if a little uninspired. Ms Violet Leaf was on treble duty, Ms Rose and Mr Patchouli forming the mid section, and Mr Sandalwood on bass. I asked the bartender where the lead vocalist was. He gestured. My eyes followed. Slumped in the corner with an empty bottle of moonshine in his hand was Mr Oud, drunk as a skunk.
