Reviews of Aoud Forest

It took me by surprise, as I was expecting a green, maybe earthy, dark fragrance, with plenty of oud or woods but what I got is a marine scent. It has clear marine/salty/ozonic notes backed up by fresh citrus and spicy ginger. There's that Montale DNA also of synthetic rose/oud for an extra kick.By the end is your basic marine scent.

This is an absolutely beautiful mix of to my nose green leaves, seawater, and rose. The dominant notes are seawater and rose along with green leaves to my nose. It is also totally unisex but some may think it leans slightly feminine due to the rose note. But what a rose note it is! It's absolutely stunning and one of the greatest impressions of rose I have ever smelled. It's like a salty rose in the ocean just floating adrift but near an island with long grasses. I don't really get much oud in this but that's ok thanks to the wonderful rose note in this that I'm a huge fan of. I actually tried a number of niche perfumes while on holiday at a niche perfume store in Vancouver, Canada called The Perfume Shoppe, and this one captivated me like no other to the point that I bought it on the spot. Sillage is moderate while longevity is pretty good with 4 hours of solid projection. Overall, this is pretty great.

4.5/5

EDIT: This actually reminds me a lot of Creed Silver Mountain Water and Xerjoff Mefisto, due to its prominent salty rose note and its fresh mountain stream vibe

A foray into pound shop territory for Montale, this release is a generic ‘man cologne’ in the manner of some of the ‘fresher’ Axes with a tiny dab of a not particularly interesting oud construct in the background. So if citrusy herbals masking mentholated mouthwash run over by a tidal wave of aquatics are your thing, then this may be for you. But then again it may not be, as it seems so half-hearted and ham-fisted. The oud note here is about as featureless as it can be, just something piercingly woody rather than the dark, textured constructs come across in other Montales.
I can’t blame the brand for going down this route – most of the mainstream Arabic houses have similar offerings in their ranges. And the overall result is not unpleasant – but when that becomes the criterion for finding something positive to say about a perfume, it’s time to pass and move on.

Yet another oud by Montale, and while most of them are decent, this one sadly falls into the "bad ones" category. Despite its name, it has not much of a "forest"; it is basically a sort of iodine-ozonic oud with a bold "deo spray" feel all over (that "fresh" feature of supermarket deodorants). There is some synthetic pine-herbal notes, a pungent spicy-salt note, perhaps vetiver, but most of all this balsamic, aldehydes-ozonic notes with a menthol feel oddly blended with oud. Clumsy and uninspired.

The first time i tested it on my skin immediately detected the "marine side of the moon" and i thought, "it's not possible, the name is Aoud Forest, my old, usually reliable, nose is going to fail for sure"....and what? I check the listed notes and see the marine elements. I can say for sure that on my skin the marine presence is unmistakable, i detect a musky/salty rose (a bit metallic) with an aromatic (almost minty, but i suppose it is due the ginger) atmosphere elicited and a sort of lemony woodiness around. I suppose that the aim of Mr. Montale has been the one to create a sort of cool, sparkling, lemony (and grapefruit) vibe over a woody/musky base and i think he obtained the aforementioned effect also combining an airy marine/woodsy feel with citrus, watery fruits and ginger while the ambergris presence manages to finally dry the blend in a sort of moodier way. Not for me but a must try for sure. Weird.

Def not an oud fragrance. I would call this a fresh, musky, salty and slightly aquatic scent with a touch of rose to soften it up. I wouldn't consider this fragrance that has a bunch of character and is going to make you scream for joy but it's still not a bad scent. Very enjoyable for me. Could be an everyday scent.
