Heady Floral with a Gurjum Twist
Montale AOUD BLOSSOM is first and foremost a big fat floral fragrance. I was having difficulty figuring out which precise flowers were represented, and small wonder since all of them are! Well, that may be a slight exaggeration. The named flowers here include jasmine, rose, tuberose, violet, and ylang. What about the other "floral notes" note listed at another site? Your guess is as good as mine, but I suspect that narcissus is present.

Taken together, the whole bouquet is quite strong, and some may find it overwhelming, especially since the petals are coated with a very potent resin, gurjum, which, in addition to having its own distinctive and penetrating scent, seems to make the flowers last forever--or until a bath.

Is there oud in this composition? I've no doubt that there is--this is Montale, after all!--but it is hidden behind all of the flowers and gurjum to the point where I feel that this perfume has been misnamed. It should really be called GURJUM BLOSSOM.

To my nose, this is a very feminine floral perfume with a classical feeling. The ylang seems to be the strongest of the many strong florals vying for attention in this creation. This is a heady mix, no matter how lightly it is applied! The florals do subside eventually, leaving behind a persistent (or is it durable????) gurjum layer.
