What does he want to be?
About a year ago I visited the Floris perfumery shop in London and discovered their Honey Oud fragrance. "A little dream," I thought to myself, but unfortunately not in my budget. So I hoped to find a possible alternative and then found Montales Aoud Honey in the hope that they would resemble each other. Fortunately, I also found a perfumery with a large Montale assortment, including Aoud Honey. I was almost inclined to buy him blind.

Tested on the skin I realized within seconds that Montale Aoud Honey and Floris Honey Oud go completely different directions: While Floris comes across as delicately sweet and soft, Montale Aoud Honey initially develops into a smoke bomb with a sweetness background. Scratchy, spicy, woody, oriental and masculine in my opinion. The honey character even disappears relatively quickly. But what remains is a bomb sillage. The previous speaker described a medicinal smell similar to eucalyptus and rightly so! After a good 15 minutes, I notice this note also for a short time. After about 30 minutes even the sweetness is gone at first and it remains dry-woody and slightly smoky for the next couple of hours. Strangely enough, the sweetness came back after a long time, although it resembles vanilla in my nose. Finally, there is not much left of honey in the Aoud Honey. What remains, however, is a bomb sillage!

During the course of the fragrance I just couldn't decide whether I liked Aoud Honey or not. The opening definitely, the next 2-3 hours not at all and later, when the sweetness returns, I really like him. All in all I could well imagine buying it. Definitely a winter scent. I can only recommend everyone to test Aoud Honey at least once before on the skin and advise against a blind purchase.

"Easy" Laotian Oud, lot's of Amber plus Cinnamon & Vanilla to mimic an honey cake. It's probably the Montale "Aoud" loved the most by women.
