I like Royal Aoud and Aoud Damascus best.
From the Aoud line:
Black Aoud - outstanding Rose
Red Aoud - outstanding Gourmand
White Aoud - outstanding Floral amber
Oud Cuir d'Arabie - outstanding Leather
Original Oud - Very good medicinal woody
Attar - Outstanding Floral
I'm curious about Aoud Flowers, Aoud Leather and Aoud Musk.
From the Non-Aouds, I enjoy:
Blue Amber: Very decent and very sugary amber
Powder Flowers: As the name suggests, powdery floral
Black Aoud: Great aoudl + rose for men with patchouli and labdanum. The first time I smelled this my eyes rolled back. Compliment getter, secret weapon. It's not for nothing that it's the most popular Montale.
Aoud Lime: Has rose and saffron as well as iris and aoud. Saffron prominant. Exotic.
Royal Aoud: Kumquat and grapefruit add a fruity/citrus freshness in a delicious mix with toned down aoud.
Aoud Roses Petals: Breathtakingly beautiful and feminine. My most favorite of the "Rose" titles.
Like a lot but not wearable for me:
White Aoud: Smokey and vanilla comforting but indolic and musky. More feminine.
Sliver Aoud: Toned down aoud and a conventional pyramid but again a certain indolic quality. Unisex.
Red Aoud: Interesting and grew on me but has a Chinese food type of smell to my nose. Unisex.
Attar is good too. I wear from my samples from time to time. Rose and Sandalwood classic with Indian spices.
Aoud Cuir D'Arabie would be very good for strict leather lovers. I'm not one but it's a quality scent.
I've tried almost all Montales, more than any other house, but these always stand out for me.
BLACK AOUD and BLUE AMBER ,imo, are the best, but i also love RED VETIVER, PATCHOULI LEAVES, SOLEIL DE CAPRI, VETIVER DES SABLES, AOUD SAFFRAN...
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

Every release is exciting. They smells great. These are just best of the best.
The bottle is beautiful, all I hate is their sprayer...
