    Aoud Lime by Montale

    As the earlier reviews indicate, Aoud Lime hardly leaves anyone neutral. This is definitely a strong and somewhat agressive fragrance with a sharp personality. Cant really think of anything even remotely resembling it.

    My experience with oud is also very limited, but I certainly enjoy it in YSLs M7. And after sampling a few of the Montales M7 seems to be true to the naure of this pungent wood.

    Aoud Lime becomes something completely different though. The sharp lime combined with the smoky and semi-sweet woods creates a dry, herbaceous and medicinal aura. The dryness is further accentuated by the strong iris and organic sandalwood. The sillage is a killer - will take over a small room in no time, so be gentle on the trigger. Overall a very cool and unusual fragrance. Can imagine it working extremely well on the right femme fatale as well.
