    Another great amber based fragrance which is not the best for me, but it's one of my favorites!
    The opening is a heavy resinous and sweet (not too sweet) scent with some spices in the background.
    It's not a very unique or different type of opening. it's like many other amber based fragrances out there, but it's quality and really heavy and great.
    As time goes by, the scent become sweeter in the vanilla way and a heavy and sharp herbal note kicked in. you can still smell that resinous amber scent but it's not strong like the opening.
    The sharp and herbal note looks like to be coriander, but I think patchouli and geranium notes are much more prominent than coriander!
    In the base, the strong sweet vanilla scent settled down and turned to a semi sweet, creamy and sensual scent with some spices from coriander in the background.
    Projection is great and longevity is awesome.
    It's definitely unisex, but a little more on feminine side!

    Deep, masculine amber

    Opening: Vanilla, Amber (of course), and some Spice. Rich and powerful--a few drops will radiate out 7-10 feet.

    Middle: The vanilla and amber persist as the spice recedes to the background. Patchouli begins to assert itself.

    Dry down: Deep, brown vanilla. Amber is still present, though weakened. I am surprised that the Patchouli never became a dominant note.

    What an intriguing scent, so different from the Aoud-based Montales! It is powerfully masculine to my nose, with an explosive sillage. There is complexity here, to be sure, but no ostentation. It is the complexity of a male tiger--danger, strength, opacity, millions of years of a finely tuned instinct for violence and predation. This is not a fragrance for peacocks.

    Though there is no musk in Blue Amber, the fragrance somehow mimics its effect. The interplay of vanilla and deep, deep amber perhaps.

    Most fragrances tend to die on my skin rather quickly. Not Blue Amber. The only other that has this kind of staying power on my body is Original Santal.

    Scent: 3/5

    Longevity: 5/5

    Sillage 5/5

    Pros: explosive sillage
    Cons: possibly too much vanilla for some; linear

    What can we say about Montale Blue Amber? It's just a straightforward "uncompromising" amber for the lovers of this note, a simple interpretation of the main theme, where the note of amber is organic, aromatic/minty, vaguely almondy, slightly resinous but talky at once (basically talky and dry anyway), than exotic, luxurious and with an usual touch (just a touch) of royal decadance. Some Ambre et Vanille E.Coudray and Hermessence Ambre Narguile' 's facets jump to mind, tickling the olfactory memory. The hesperides are well modulated but enough present to enhance (at least in the first stage) a touch of aristocratic decadance, the note of patchouli in never heady or dark (as on the contrary happens for instance in Scent Intense), the consistence is never too dense as for instance in the case of Mona di Orio Amber, the floral elements and the powdery woods are basically absent, the note of vanilla is almost accessorial and a woodsy presence of musk, aromatic spices and vetiver is appointed in order to nail down a green/blue "kinda fluorescent" cool vibe. I love the pure, airy, penetrating, powdery animalic vibe of this fragrance, a juice conjuring at me the odour coming from a clean, talky and dry baby skin. The dry down is simply to die for. One of the best sheer amber at a more than decent price.

    a slightly boubon opening and then amber/vanilla/powder. a very simple long lasting scent that leans towards the feminine side than masculine. lasts all day but overpriced. my 2 ml sample will do and i will wear it again before the summer heat arrives..

    This Montale is a very refined interpretation of amber. The opening is amber and powder, reminiscent of baby powder. The dry-down presents a warm vanilla that never becomes cloying. Like all Montales, this has monster projection and longevity.

    The longevity and sillage are truly remarkable. No sweat or water will remove this fragrance easily. Never had anything like it!

    On my skin it gives a big, cloudy amber smell with some sharp notes in the beginning that i don't find very pleasant (hence 4 stars instead of 5). The sharpness reminds me a bit of old-fashioned ladies' smell like Nonchalance etc...

    I don't wear this in the daytime, but it is very suitable for social occasions and going out.
