I have to agree with the reviewer praising this one. I own several oud-centric Montales, and I think this one has the smoothest, most well-integrated and well-complimented oud note of all. The earthy, peaty tobacco note is given an air of sharp fermentation by the kumquat. A rich, woody incense background pulls grounds everything seamlessly. Better composed and blended than many of the other Montale Aoud ** offerings IMO.

I am a nurse and this fragrance applies as Band Aid brand Bandages. Medicinal citrus. I don't ever smell the tobacco, which would have saved it.

Superbly beautiful men's fragrance. Opens with a strong blast of astringent, medicinal aoud which is quickly joined by the dark, luscious smell of freshly mashed up tobacco leaves. The tobacco note is exceptional. The intoxicating aoud and tobacco cocktail lingers for several hours at which point it is joined by a deep, masculine animalic musk, warm woods and incense. The fragrance has tremendous projection and, similar to many other Montale aoud-based fragrances, tenacious longevity. I get an easy twelve hours on my skin and several days on my clothing. Warning: be careful of spraying it on light-colored clothing, since the juice is a deep amber color and will likely leave a stain.

This fragrance, although gorgeous, is likely not for everyone. You need to really like both aoud and tobacco to like this fragrance, since these are the dominant notes, last a long time, and project strongly. But, if, like me, you do like aoud and tobacco, you will be hard pressed to find a better, more beautifully crafted combination of the two.

Strongly recommended. One of Montale's Best.
