Sexy Stinkie Winkie
"Aoud Cuir d'Arabe" is a dirty leather steam hammer that polarizes like only a few scents from Montale. Most of the time there is (more or less) agreement - either weak or really strong. It's different with this leathery globetrotter. He's the one you love or hate. Where I lie shows my score.
I adore some leather scents and count this genus meanwhile to my preferred fragrance, but such a leather pine like this Montale has seldom or never come under my nose. But I wouldn't call myself an expert on the fabric or real leather (and its smells) at all. In a leather factory, no matter if Kik or Hermes, no matter if India or Hintertupfingen, I never stood before. But some leather jackets hang in the wardrobe, from imitation leather to the Real Deal. "Aoud Cuir d'Arabie" comes close to my (manageable) experience in real leather, but that's not the point. It's just a hot perfume.
It is strong, potent, blends creamy oud with scratchy leather and something daring, something sensual emerges. Stink, sweat, attract. There's something animal about it, something original, something untamed. I like it very much. Either you reap comments like "Puma cage" or you are dragged by your colleague to the ladies' toilet - in between there is a yawning emptiness like just before a western showdown. Whether the many extremely different, almost conflicting opinions, voices and experiences may be due to different batches (or even the Montale brand chaos of a few years ago), remains to be seen. For me, this Chief Leather Neck is a strong guy. Aggressive but pleasant enough, self-confident but never boastful, powerful but never selfish. He's seen the world, but only tells about it when he's asked about it. You can tell by looking at him. Experience, mischievousness, inner peace. Despite former hunting mode. A rough leather diamond cut by the seasons, the weather and the human/male body in the dirt of Cairo. Thousand and one freight.
Flacon: so light, the Montales, but often so potent...
Sillage: a firecracker - the spray finger trembles!
Hangability: 9 hours I wear this sun-kissed leather jacket.
Conclusion: one of the mustiest, most masculine and horniest leather fragrances on the market. Stinky, rebellious, beastly. The opposite of a blind buy tip. Even among leather fans, ghosts and tastes still quarrel here... Love it!
