Trying Montale Aoud Cuir d'Arabie today from a sample vial.
It opened with strong oud/rose which softened over the first two hours, remaining, but less up-front, in the middle of a clean new leather with some light spices in the background. Wonderful.
But it has already faded a lot (after 3 1/2 hours).
My question is whether this is known to have limited longevity, or whether it will behave differently from an atomizer or if applied more liberally.
What is your experience with this Montale?
