SOTD: White Aoud by Montale


So today I am sampling Montale's White Aoud (my first Montale aoud scent), I'm going to say it now but I don't think I am very good at wearing aoud, there is a harshness in it that just doesn't smooth out on me. I admit I rather love the opening, but the dry down is rather harsh on my skin. I would describe it as a dry chalky quality.

Aoud is notoriously difficult, so don't feel bad about it. Plus Montale doesn't exactly use that much, so some of the discomfort has to do with other elements as well.

I suspect it is the cedar note, ironically I love the scent of cedar, but my skin does not get along with it very often. It either turns sweaty or chalky.
