seeroos.syed's Review of Aoud Ever by Montale

This is a really interesting citrus-oud offering by Montale that has a very beautiful sweet lime note with oud and sandalwood in the background. This is one of the only Montales where citrus is the dominant player. The oud here smells similar to the oud in Mancera Aoud Vanille, so it's sweet and also reminds me a lot of the smell of pistachio kulfi (the popular Pakistani/Indian ice cream dessert). If you can imagine it, imagine the lime note in Mancera Lemon Line combined with the oud note in Mancera Aoud Vanille, and you have this. It also gives me similar vibes to Acqua di Parma Colonia Oud (but doesn't smell like it at all, really). On the drydown, the oud becomes more woody and leathery while the citrus notes remain in the background. Projection is moderate (lesser than other Montales but still adequate), while longevity is also moderate at about 3 hours of good projection. Still, this is a really unique take on citrus and I like it.
