Melodic introduction to aoud
Not a new melody at all, but a pleasant one. A fine balance between deep aoud notes, leathery warmth and oriental spices (saffron, clove). This well-known Montale-tune is amplified by notes of Egyptian jasmine and a faint rose in the background, but the accent is clearly on the spices, the leather and the aoud. A touch of cedarwood, sandalwood and amber was added in the drydown, but I can't say that "Melody" is ultra-strong. Is it only me or would others also say that the staying-power of many Montale fragrances has become less remarkable? "Melody" offers medium longevity (4hs on my skin). Since my sample has to be dabbed on, I can't tell you much about the sillage, because I only applied some drops of the perfume onto my wrist. Nevertheless, "Melody" doesn't seem to be a sillage-monster like "Black Aoud" or "Sweet Oriental Dream". It's a scent I'd recommend to everybody who is looking for a seasonless aoud-fragrance which is neither too pungent nor too heavy. The ideal choice for people who still need to discover if the specific "Montale-sytle", this Europeanized kind of orientalism, agrees with them or not.

Announces itself loud and determined (oud and saffron), becomes soon quiet and somewhat indecisive (warm with slightly scratchy elemi note).
