Very helpful Review    10  
A defiance assessment
A defiance rating of 10 points, which I felt compelled to do. What's going on here?

The scent is what it promises to be. A very (!) intense lime to start with the present Montale-Oud in the background. A maximally refreshing combination.

From now on I use the term Montale-Oud for these synthetic groats. Synthetic grits does not mean that a fragrance cannot smell nice if it contains them. It just means that it has to be well dosed. In and of itself, it would smell like cheap. When embedded, it can smell nice. Here the composition smells good.

Only after a few hours does the lime become tired and wants to be removed. She sits down on a sofa in the background and lets her friends Rose and Saffron sit next to her. She does not leave the room. The sillage decreases. Fortunately the ingredients fit together quite well. I don't want to find many more words. I don't have any great associations and the scent is not particularly imaginative. But it is timeless and refreshing. Loud in the beginning, elegant in the course of the fragrance and with rose and oud in the ingredients it is almost classic.

And besides: who wouldn't like to smell of a juicy lime in summer and be refreshed by it? That's why I like the loud start best.

Under normal circumstances, the scent would probably have received more like 8.5 points from me. However, it simply doesn't deserve the local rating of only 6.5 points. Therefore I give 10 points to compensate at least a little bit. Yes, the oud is synthetic. Does it bother you? Then you shouldn't expect to get the scent for only 111

It is simply unfair again and again when a fragrance for 1€ per ml has to be compared with "competitors" for 5,90€ per ml. That there might be a difference in the quality of the ingredients should be obvious to every average intelligent person. Whoever wants to smell high-quality ingredients should simply not smell Montale. There is a wide selection at many niche labels, which are more qualitative and more expensive. Montale offers a good starting point for cost-conscious niche beginners and that is a good thing. Not everyone has €300 for a perfume on the high end. Be fair to Montal!

Cheers

Needs time to be understood
Opens with a harsh lime and powerful oud.

Then, after many hours, dries down to a beautiful sweet sandalwood and roses.

This reminds me of AMBER & SPICES sometimes.

As SL's Arabie, Aoud Lime needs some time to be completely understood.

Sillage, lasting power and projection are high.
