Here's what other people are saying about Aoud Cuir d'Arabie...
I didn't have high expectations for Aoud Cuir d'Arabie, given my funky skin chemistry. (On me, Black Aoud was all black spices and nothing else.) The bandaid note sits just right. I detect a whisper of roses somewhere in the background; they come and go as they please. (Thankfully, no rose note-induced headaches.) I definitely get the leather and the aoud. The longer I wear it, the more I find myself burying my nose in my arm. I could definitely see myself wearing Aoud Cuir d'Arabie. *5 Stars*

I love this juice. I can see how people would be turned off when this is first sprayed. But after about 15 minutes this stuff smells great. I do not smell any tobacco from this though. I do smell leather once the opening blast goes away. I've gotten complements from a couple women on this telling me I smell nice. I live in New England and I see all 4 seasons, but this is not something I like to wear once it gets warmer out. Definitely fall and winter. This works well with my skin and I get good silliage and a solid 8 hours on longevity before it's starts to become a skin scent.

Too astringent for my taste.

I had no idea this was considered a masculine fragrance. I think it smells great on me, but then I've always been one to favour the smell of cologne over the "flower-humping" female alternatives. Anyway, top notes of leather and graphite (odd, I know, but I actually kind of love the smell of graphite), middle notes of rose (believe it or not--my hubby actually commented that Cuir d'Arabie was 'another lovely rose/wood scent' and that was before I told him I smelled rose, too, OR that there wasn't actually any rose in it!) and tobacco, and bottom notes of burnt wood and incense. The first application is a bit intense, but the drydown is earthy and smokey, but soft. It's a contradiction I know, but it's least on me. I don't love it as much as Black Aoud, but it is still a great scent. 4 1/2 stars.

When I first applied this I thought, "OMG! What have I done?!" Not a good first impression. It does settle down after while -- 10 15 minutes maybe? Will have to try again, I think it has potential.

I'd consider this one to be unisex, actually. There's so few people who could wear Oud Cuir d'Arabie that I don't think sex is going to be the determining factor...

When I first smelled this, I thought it is the vilest thing I've ever smelled; and I would have been content relegating it to the bottom of my samples box. I can't remember what it is that made me give it another try, but ever since the thing has been growing on me--big time. This is one of the most animalic leathers I have ever smelled! It starts off almost raunchy, but what keeps me coming back, aside from the dirty thrill of the opening, is its warm heart of gold (oud). This is certainly one sexy distinctive masculine perfume; the only reason I am giving it 4 stars and not 5 is because of my jarring initial encounter with it, and my realization that this isn't a perfume for every one.

Probably the least harsh of M Montale's line of oud based fragrances. One must acquire a taste for oud, or you will be shocked and disappointed. Sandal Oud by Ms Ericksson of SonomaScentStudio is much more wearable, in my opinion.
