Reviews of Bengal Oud

Another Montale excursion to the shoe shop, but this is sufficiently different to the most obvious others visiting this idea: Aoud Leather and Aoud Cuir d’Arabie. After a very chewy leather opening – equal parts inside of brand new shoe and something slightly curdled almost cheese-like – there is a refreshing relaxing of this perfume; bitter notes common to Aoud Leather make their appearance, but the overall balance is different. Whereas AL comes wrapped in diffusive cool musks, here the clean aspect of the profile includes intriguing glimpses of greens and soft florals. The drydown sadly is where Bengal Oud wants to re-join Aoud Leather at the hip, so you probably wouldn’t want to own both. Bengal Oud is on the whole in a quieter style than we are used to from Montale, and that for some may be just what they were looking for.

Bitter citrus juice, poured over wood chips. More wood rises. Some very dry iris here. Other flowers are very pale. Leather shows up underneath after 15 minutes.

A rather muddled amber accord in the base, with muted sandalwood and a touch of vetiver. Not, one of Montale's better fragrances.

Bengal Oud is a recent release from Montale and it’s overwhelmingly a dry, semi-rubbery leather scent that’s accented by some patchouli, vetiver, and woods, but the leather is the main story of this one. It performs well but feels a little repetitive with other past Montale/Mancera creations, and like others have pointed out, Leather Oud in particular rings a bell. Still, it might be for you if you dig this formula.

Priced at the standard $170 for 100ml retail, Bengal Oud is sold in boutiques like Krystal Fragrance, in addition to department stores.
