Heavy
Black orchid, Tom Ford, no flowery cut. If that's too much for you, you can test the heavy golden Aoud. You have to try it. Either you love it or you hate it. In the evening the scent is bearable, but in the morning ...no sunny wake-up call

Another variation of the same
Golden Aoud is another oud-based scent as many of Montale.

But in this case the roses are very shy. The geranium, a bit of pepper and leather takes its place.

This fragrance is far from being any sweet, but a dry oud with a touch of leather from beginning to the end.

Sillage, projection and lasting power are medium-high.

Love that saffron in the drydown!
I tried the Golden Aoud a day after sampling Montale Black Oud.

The roses in Golden Aoud are much different from the dark, sinister ones of Black Aoud. Golden Aoud's roses are lighter, less overwhelming, and mixed with another very fresh floral note I can't identify. (The notes listed above say geranium, and that makes sense.) And of course the aoud.

I did not experience the middle note of leather shown above, but I did catch a waft of patchouli. The base notes arrived a few hours later. The base is aoud, of course, and a rich cedar tinged with saffron. Quite lovely, actually.
