It may be Aoud Lime, but on me it is Aoud Rose, but unlike Montale's other rose scents this does not get strong or heavy on me. The "lime" aspect is just keeping the rose crisp. Patchouly and I are normally not close friends but, like TF Moss Breches, the patch here is in check (most of the time) and does not have a ton of throw (sometimes my body chemistry does amp this).

This is really unique. The Lime is very front and centre and does not dissipate. Very tricky to do. Most citrus scents are notoriously short lived. I LOVE this. As with all Aouds it opens strong but then settles and I believe the aoud anchors and blends the other elements of the fragrance. The lime never disappears but melds with other florals for a fresh but rich fragrance that is one of …Read more

I didn't get any lime, just lots of gorgeous aoud. There is a very slight rose note in this, but it isn't nearly as strong as the Red or White Aoud. This turned a little soapy after a while. It struck me as an easily unisex fragrance.

As with all the Montale Aoudes, you cannot judge this from the vial, or wet on the skin. It requires a drydown of about 15 minutes to calm down and meld with your chemistry, and as other Montale Aoudes do, has a medicinal, harsh quality initially. Initially, and through the drydown, is a tart, fresh waft of lime, kind of like the top note of a gin and tonic. There's an incense note …Read more

I think this is a wonderful lime fragrance that lasts, and lasts. Best in southern climates, or hot summer! I think it is very masculine. Whover picks up rose is correct. The rose actually produces the lime impression in its special oud surrounding.

My biggest bugbear with this is it's almost identical to a mosquito spray I use when I'm in Finland. Such is the power of fragrance, I am immediately reminded of itching for England. The medicinal quality may be the aoud - but if aoud/oud means wood, I'm confused. I'm searching for the wood and not getting it. What I am getting is posh lime cordial, pepper... Actually, before …Read more

Aoud Lime. Does Lime translate as herbal rose in some other language that I'm unaware of? The opening of Aoud Lime has a very prononunced herbal rose and oud accord to my nose - slightly similar to Black Oud's opening, but as they dry down they become quite distinct. Many of the oud scents have rather harsh openings to me, but as they develop they become quite lush and much softer …Read more

<i>The sensuality of a very precious Aoud from the Pakistan's mountains, refreshed by Roses from India and Iris from Italy, based on Amber - Patchouli, Sandalwood, and a light note of Safran

I really disliked this intensely. It is incredibly potent and VERY medicinal. I barely detected any lime at all but through the dry down which I had to force myself to …
