just crass.........bad ;-(
How good that it was only 5ml that inspired me to do a test. I don't want to write a few lines here, but simply get to the point. I don't know what this smells like. It is simply a very strong and very intense soap smell! The durability and Sillage are rightly in the upper third, but what use is it to me, when after spraying it comes up to me. I know Oud from Boss, Gucci or Tom Ford, but here I don't smell any of it. I'm sorry not to describe to you in more detail what my nose has perceived here in terms of scents. Soapy, strongly medically unpleasant easy for me, which was not lost even after 20 - 30 minutes. Sorry, we're more likely to become enemies than friends

Aoud for advanced users
I'm not yet at peace with the ingredient aoud - especially when it stands out dominantly from a fragrance.

And the Oud in Black does not only stand out - it determines the fragrance - very dark, so that the addition " Black " fits.

Unfortunately.

Just one spray darkens the room - and the thoughts.
Even the sky is contracting ominously and a storm is brewing.
Woody Allen would call the scent " Kafkaesque."

Oud connoisseurs will probably appreciate the " scent " - but I don't count myself among them.

Here in the Ruhrpott one would say : Smells like a cudgel on a head !
A hearty paraphrase - but one that hits the nail on the head.

Lighter oud ingredients may appeal to me from time to time - but not this black drone.

The other ingredients listed do not reach me - they remain hidden behind a heavy black curtain.

Maybe something for " black magician ?

Elegant agarwood
Definitely one of the best fragrances in my collection. I don't want to talk around the bush, and I'll get to the point right away.
At the first spray, one turns away, because the heavy woody spicy notes bite in the nose. Over time, however, Black Aoud develops into something very elegant, calming and balsamic. This fragrance is oriental, but not conspicuously oriental.
I can personally perceive Oud, but it is not as present as the rose, but both are very balanced and therefore the fragrance is also quite mysterious and elegant.
The individual fragrances are well selected, as is the quality of the oils.
A short experience from me:
I put 2 sprayers on my left arm this morning, but I had to go out and swim in the meantime. Of course Black Oud is still very present, the little splashing and showering didn't bother the mysterious gentleman :)

Definitely a buy tip, but test before announced...

Old ?love does not rust
Black Aoud from the house of Montale is one of my long loves. It is very dominant, strong, fresh and persistent. You have to know exactly when to wear it. If you come with him around the corner , you have won or lost . I always feel like a winner. No matter what others think. The interplay of the fragrance components is a bit chemical, but that is normal for Montale. You have to give it some time to unfold. But then he pushes fragrance clouds still above. Which remind me again and again how love can be . ? Thank you

Mancera The Aoud vs Montale Black Aoud
Since I have samples of both, the perfume houses quasi belong together and the perfumes seem so already very related I compare these times, Montale on the left arm and Mancera on the right.

Opening:
Montale opens with a very medicinal - artificial oud - rose blend underpinned by patchouli. Positively I find the patchouli, for me not necessarily delicious but also not too "soapy", as it is usually the case. Goes rather into the oily-herbaceous. I find that neither the oud nor the rose smells natural here. The oud is neither warm, nor animalic, barn-yard like but is responsible for the medicinal note in my opinion. In addition, a breath of old, dry wood.

Mancera
The Mancera smells off the bat clearly more complex and less medicinal. Pepper and the oil of bergamot I smell out very pleasantly. The rose mixed with geranium and saffron seems a little sweeter than the Montale and combines well with the woods. Peppery-hot-woody so, I like it a bit better than the Montale so far whereas this one reminds me quite a bit of church. Goes something in the direction of Guerlain Santal Royal. In the Mancera is also no animalic, poopy Oud in it but one with Medizinischer note, very similarly as in the Montale I would say but more difficult to say because this is not so in the center by the woods
Montale I find at first a little louder than Mancera.

Dry-down:
The two perfumes approach each other significantly.
The Montale becomes significantly less medicinal, the rose goes somewhat into the background. Everything is somehow a little rounder and a little less synthetic. Seems a little greener. Even has a certain freshness and the patchouli fits well. And normally I don't like patchouli. Not bad at all.

Unfortunately, I have to say that the Montale has the nose in front from my point of view, because the Mancera is a bit musty here and loses spice. The pepper and a bitter fresh note remains. The composition somehow blurred. Too bad.

I think its more of a feminine scent, my wife loves this, its a high class exotic rose scent with a room filling performance.

A strong oriental fragrance with rose, oud and patchouli in the front. My favorite Montale along with Intense Cafe.

I really like the oud and patchouli in this. But I find the strong pungent rose to be very off-putting. It's very rose forward
