Remember me blathering on about how any Montale perfume can be layered in every which way...because they're all Montale and they have certain similarities like aoud...oh yes, it's just magical.
That could be the biggest lie I've ever told.
DO NOT EVER layer Aoud Damascus and White Aoud. Just don't. I mean it. Say no. Or you could have a conversation like the one at our house.
B-man: Wow, what's that perfume?
Me (proudly): That's a new combo I'm calling White Damascus (I am so, so clever)
B-man: Uh-huh, well that's some monster sillage you got there.
Me: Yeah, but it will calm down soon.
B-man: It's not calming down.
Me: God, I reek, don't I?
B-man: It's just...wow, really, um, strong.
I was on my way out the door and didn't have time to do anything about it. But I can tell you this. On the elevator, I reeked (pay back for the BO reekers). In my office, I reeked. It wasn't until about 11:00 that I felt comfortable no one would pass out in my company. Lightheaded, perhaps, but not hit-the-floor faint.
Aoud Damascus and White Aoud are in completely different gangs.
I hate learning things the hard way - and I suck at gang slang.
