The trend of aoud fragrances is here. Why not to try and see if you like aoud or not. And , as I learned from my dear reviewers, it highly depends of the quality of the aoud.
Montale named his perfume Aoud( first thing first) and Roses Petales(last). It was ment for me, the novice, to understand that what I have to evaluate is the aoud. And I did. I did not like it. Heavy like a huge door that does not let you open it, or, maybe, I was the one who could not find the way to do it.
While standing in front of this door you can smell roses, petals of roses, but I imagine that not too many novices opened the door becase the rose petals are dried up. Eventually I drew a parralel with Crown- Rose Bouquet- with its smell of dried roses.
I am still learning. That's all .

Not harsh neither medicinal oud if compared to Aoud Lime or White Aoud first notes.

Oud here is soft and rose is sweet and comforting. I can clearly detect the geranium note and a light woody note.

It reminds a lot of Aseel by Al-Rehab for sure - Aseel is slightly less sweet and more earthy roses.

Aoud Rose Petals is unisex and has a great lasting power and sillage. I prefer this to Aoud Queen Roses and to Aoud Damascus.

More Rosebush Than Oud--but still very good
Montale AOUD ROSE PETALS opens as a strong greenish rose bush perfume, by which I mean complete with stems, leaves and thorns-—and a few petals, too. This stage lasts sufficiently long to remind me of TEA ROSE and lead me to ask why I would buy another rosebush-in-a-blender perfume for 50x (or more…) the price of the queen of green rose, readily available for single-digit dollars.

After several minutes, however, the regality of AOUD ROSE PETALS finally begins to shine through, at this point reminding more of Amouage UBAR than TEA ROSE. But I hasten to add that I still do not think that the oud (or aoud or oudh) note ever asserts itself enough to warrant classifying this as an oud perfume. This is a beautiful floral composition, but it is, in the end, a floral, not an oriental perfume.

The drydown of ROSE PETALS OUD manifests the same vintage quality shared by UBAR and L’OMBRE ROSE, so for now (for the same crassly economic reason) I’ll stick with the latter. All in all, while I like ROSE PETALS OUD, its various stages are so similar to other, far less expensive perfumes that it seems best to save the big Montale bucks for something else from their vast collection, which I am only beginning to explore.

-----
After acquiring some manufacturer's carded samples from this house, I decided to try AOUD ROSES PETALS again and found that it is much more oriental than it seemed from my initial testing from a decanted vial. Hmmm.... I do not think that it is heavily oudified, but there is definitely a lot more going on than just roses.
