    Default Re: Aoud Cuir d'Arabie by Montale

    this must be the most authentic leather smell there is, i found here what i missed in Cuir de russie from Chanel! animalic but luxury and clean smell! (luxury doesnt go together with dirty or fecal to me)

    Chanel s is pumped with lots of irises and something smoky ......has strong barnyard smell, even unpleasant at first...

    Montale hits all aspects of a leather perfectly. This is most expencive race horse running next to you its not dirty, it is not fecal at all, its the most animalic clean scent i have smelled and thats the reason why i like it! ....i think they got this with adding oud, it added luxury , cleaness to the animalic note, so it doesnt come off as dirty and hard to pull off at least for me!
    i had much more trouble wearing Chanel that smelled so much of a barnyard....but then iris takes over and thats bitter iris scent to me more then a leather

    i dont like when leather is trying to be made up by bitterness....so this here makes perfect authentic leather scent! am so surprised its not hard to wear as so many people said, while Chanel was hard to wear for me

    Leather Oud wasn't for me, so this one may not be. Sounds nice though.

    I still have a decant of this on my To Buy list. Even the Dior and the new Guerlain still don't replicate the wonderful leather/oud combo of this one.

    I found Aoud Cuir d'Arabie more wearable than Leather Oud, fwiw.

    me the other way around, i found cuir d'arabie a bit brash and unrefined compared to leather oud, which i find is more wearable and much for refined, but that does not change the fact that cuir d'arabie is a fantastic scent!
