I always had great respect for the scents of Montale, not to say: fear of contact, because they have the reputation of being quite strong and opulent, and that is not my thing at all. In terms of mentality, I am also more the calm observer than the diva in the centre.
Now I have dared a test, and I must say, the caution was justified.
Oudmazing is already a clear statement, and that already with only one sprayer.
What I like about the fragrance is the combination of the different notes: There are sweet, bitter, tangy, fruity, floral, earthy, spicy, and of course oud. All in one, so to speak, and in roughly equal parts. I like that very much, it creates a balance between the poles and is always very interesting and not monotonous. (I also like to eat dishes that contain all flavours - sweet, sour, salty, hot, ... - not infrequently this preference meets with disbelieving head shaking... :D )
I also find the oud very beautiful here, because it is not as dominant as in many other scents, but the other notes are accompanied and grounded.
But overall the whole thing is too intense, overloaded, almost brute and exhausting (for me).
After wearing it for a long time I notice that the scent on me becomes more and more fruity (for me slightly pungent) and sweeter.
The oud, leather and patchoulin notes run out of air and can no longer compete with fruit salad.
So I like Oudmazing less and less, because the balance is lost and it becomes extremely sweet.
Together with the strong Sillage and durability really too much.
Only recommended for people who like strong, intense scents and who like to attract attention.
Thanks to B. for the tip, was worth a try! :)
