    Golden Aoud by Montale

    As in Black Aoud, the rose here is no less prominent, although it may seem overwhelmed in the beginning by the potency of these accompanying notes: oud, teakwood and patchouli, the latter imparting a noticeably camphoraceous vibe to the composition. If there is any 'leather' in here, it must have given my nose the proverbial slip.

    GOLDEN AOUD is sonorous but its high-pitched tonality feels a little strident and harsh compared to Black Aoud's assuredly smooth performance. On my skin all the interesting drama unfolds in the first 20 minutes, leaving behind a more conventional rose-patchouli-cedar scent that veers closer to the feminine side of the scale.

    Bulgarian rose, geranium bourbon, patchouli, leather, Jamaican capsicum pepper, oud, saffron, teakwood and Moroccan cedarwood.
