    Default Mona Di Orio Oud

    Was out doing some smelling at great niche fragrance shop in Scottsdale, looking for an oud that struck me. Was thinking at first, maybe one of the Montale Aouds (I like black and red aoud the best out of the line). I ran across Mona Di Orio Oud; after about 5 minutes on my skin the osmanthus and oud just leaps out at you. I looked around and tested many others but always went back to my hand to check the progression from almost a woodsy hay oud to a ambery gentlemens oud. Long story short, ended up with a beautiful oud and one the best box/bottle presentations i've seen.

    Was ambivalent about it when I tried it the first time, but liked it much better the second time.

    Enjoy it. It is a very beautiful perfume. As it's still like winter where I am, I wore it yesterday. So warm and elegant, with just that touch of skank that Mona did so well.

    Sometimes you just have to ignore the price if something speaks to you so strongly

    My thoughts too. Maybe I'll build a bottle out of free samples?

    Congrats on the fragrance! I'm really aching to buy some Mona Di Orio Oud, but it's too much for just myself. I would like to do a split in the future though.

    i like this one too...even my friend who's not a perfume lover say this is very very nice. Probably this is one of the best oud perfume i've ever smelled thus far.

    My favorite oud so far - I find this an enormously appealing fragrance, and I am very far from being an oud person.

    I've been wearing it a lot in the last couple of months, this is one of the only ouds I feel like I can pull off in the summer. I find that I pick up more of the osamanthus / petit grain and less of the Oud after more and more wearings.

    I still have not smelled this one - it sounds fantastic.
