All purpose class
Wondeful spicy wood scent. Sophisticated - appropriate for business suit and yet can be worn with jeans

Save your $
Skip all the prose about magical forests, it's bull$hit. Just go buy a bar of Irish Spring soap, then spray a cheap drug store men's aquatic cologne over it and you'll have the same scent. Why is Oud even a part of this imposter's name? I waited and waited to smell oud even though I wanted nothing more than to scrub this away. It never appears.

Love it!
I loved this! The opening was very perfumy and I was skeptical initially. The dry down, though, opened up a lovely marine, fresh scent. Made me think of an oldie but goodie-- Nautica. I couldn't get past the fact that it's just a touch masculine for me, though. I turned around and bought a full bottle right away to gift to my son for his birthday. Fresh!

This fragrance smells exactly like a number of my prized Oud Incense jars that I have at home and have been collecting for years. When I say that, I do mean EXACTLY. More specifically, it smells like Oudh Nasaem. It is utterly astounding just how perfectly the two match, at least to MY nose. Another similar fragrance is the designer fragrance Mukhallat Shahrayar, which advertises an Oud fragrance as well. In short, I'm in love with this stuff.

My mistake I guess...
Obviously a very masculine cologne for a man.

Listed as unisex. Not your bad at all. Glad I read this!

Found my new favorite
This scent is clean, refreshing and warm all at the same time. It reminds me of someone from a long time ago. I love this scent. I read the other reviewers comments and was concerned that this would be far too masculine to pass for a unisex scent. Thankfully we all are different. I adore this scent. My boyfriend loves this scent on me. As a matter of fact, he wants to purchase the full-sized bottle for me so I can wear it every day. The scent lasts a long time without losing its brightness.

Cool and Green, then Fades to Floral
I love the first impact of this scent, it is cool, blue/green, damp and mossy - fresh and dark like shadows on the forest floor. After the dry down it softens considerably and warms. It almost turns floral, like walking from the cool forest into a sun-drenched field of flowers. It sometimes reminds me of Pleasures halfway through the day. I prefer the first notes, the dark, cool, shadowy parts of the fragrance, but overall it's very nice and totally wearable.

Montale’s Aoud Forest is something special. Montale knocks it out of the park once again with this monster projection of oud based frag. I get the rose, ginger & spices. In the dry down I get more of the musk.. Like most montale frags... Projection & sillage is through the roof!!! Definitely not for everybody so sample here before you buy!!

is it anything like santal wood?

Old fashioned men's cologne
Disappointed. I do not smell any of the listed notes. Reminds me of something my Grandpa wore when I went to visit. Very sharp and spicy woods; I can't smell any of the lighter notes because of this. Kind of generic, like a Bath & Body Works canned men's spray: it smells masculine, but not necessarily in a pleasant way. Extremely strong (it actually makes my sinuses hurt to sniff my arm). I might use it as a room spray, but I can't wear it and I do not like it well enough to have my husband wear it.

Great Scent
Loved Montale Aoud Forest - strong but subtle. Clean and smooth is the way I would describe it. Very refreshing and perfect for a night out.

Disappointed !
This month when i received my scent the bottle was only half filled. I believe you haven't changed the quantity of the product.

Dominant Oud
the oud is dominant. Lasts 3-4 hours after applying 3-4 presses. Good perfume for oud lovers. I think scent bird is diluting the effect of the perfume, After a few weeks the perfume doesn't last that long and the oud is no more dominating.

Great scent!!!
My favorite so far!

So awful
This smells like the most rancid, cheap, overpowering perfume ever made. Instant headache, all I smell is chemical grossness.

Strong but nice
Very strong , can definitely detect that they used a lot of alcohol in it, but still a very nice scent

I needed something that lasts longer and you can smell from afar. It did that but I didn't like the smell... a couple of girls did though... so yeah overall a very good fragrance but not my type..

Smells soooo good!
This is a new fave for me. Very sexy. I absolutely love this scent. Tons of compliments!

Great for your mom.
I know it says Uni-sex, but really there's not many masculine notes in this scent. Men should stay away. With that being said, great for women.

Very clean
I like. Has a very clean smell. I’m very big in unisex colognes. This smells really good imo.

Montale - Aoud forest
It was a nice fresh scent. But, not a scent that I was looking for. It's nice to be able to test out the scent

Great scent for me!
Im a pisces and i love anything ocean smelling! This is definitely sea water forward, with the amazing reminder that agarwood is a note too. Agarwood is one on my fav scents. If you like quality incense and the sea, you'll prob like this perfume.

Very Nice
I've tried a few of the Montale brand and they are definitely more refined fragrances. While I do like Aoud Forest I'm not 100% sold on it. Since it is a more unisex fragrance the top notes present during the first stages of it's long life cycle are quite floral. I would equate them to a paprika or patchouli. Almost like something a elderly woman would wear. Once those notes do fade, however, the more earthy notes become more present and are quite fresh and pleasant and more suitable for men at that point. While I will use this fragrance from time to time, it's not really for me. That said, it's an amazing fragrance and definitely worth a try.

Reminds me of a forest after a cleansing, cool rain
I really love this perfume as it is a great spring/summer scent. I would say the strength is medium, so strong enough to last but I would not label this a strong scent at all aside from a few seconds upon initial application. At first you really get the water notes and rosemary with an undertone from the oud. My daughter and I both said "This smells like a forest right after it rains" simultaneously. On dry down the ginger and grapefruit round it out with a bit of needed sweetness, but it is not cloying and the other 3 notes are still the stars of the show. I do not feel it smells powdery, as I am not really a fan of powdery perfumes. If it is then the fresh clean scent makes it take a back seat enough that I like this one. What I also love here is the lasting power. So many perfumes I love only last a short time on me. This one lasts all day. If your preference is floral or definitely fruity this is not it, but it doesn't claim to be.
