Expecting the heavy and intrusive x+oud(heavily synthetic/sharp) formula deployed that I recall from a number of other Montale products in the past, I recoiled surprisedly, checked the label again and realised that I underestimated this house in my expectation.
The rose was there from the beginning; a light, bright and elegant rose, without depth and heaviness; a bit simple and linear. Still, a very pleasant rose.
After a brief moment another note is evident: a slight greenness with a touch smoky incense, although the latter arises later in the drydown.
The harshness - often a synthetic oud - that characterises some other Montale products is replaced by faint whiffs of white musk in the background, which are more evident towards the end.
I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.
Not a complex rose creation, this daytime sping scent is lighter and much more elegant than I expected. A Montale that gives the rose a chance to shine. 3.25/5.

It's filled in an exclusive depicting strenghth of this lingering scent,a tantalising mix of rose and musk.It opening with a divine scent of rose the dry down is where this perfume really shines.it gets even more intense as the noticeable musk and amber intertwine with the rose and the result is a great scent that one or two drops of this is all you need for rest of the day.it gives men strong internal sensations of feminine sexual power and conflict which is something unique.great for intimate occasion and romantic mood.if you like little bit dark rose you should try this one.
Longevity?Superb on my skin.
It's not only roses and musk... it does have a great jasmine note and vanilla.
Sweet and bright roses with a great animalic note.
Not so heavy neither ethereal.
Better for women, but it's unisex in my opinion
It's like a watered down version of Mancera Roses Vanille.
Reminds me of JHAG Lady Vengeance.
Sillage, lasting power and projection are great.
At first glance, this is a spicy rose with a bit of classic Montale astringency. Dry down is a brooding rose. retaining a bit of astringent musk. Many of Montale fragrances are Rose noted, this is one of the better ones.
Maybe my sample was bad, but all i got was a nasty tangy musk with very little rose. Subpar sillage and longevity for Montale standards. Did not like it one bit, but i repeat that it's possible that i may have gotten a bad sample.
This starts off as a quite masculine-feeling rose, & slowly sweetens as it warms on the skin, with amber & musk coming through. lt's like roses with the leaves on, & l agree there is something smokey in the base. The sillage is soft, warm & sensual, but l don't find this as long-lasting as other Montales l've tried. lf you're looking for a straight-up rose-musk fragrance, l'd recommend Crystal Flowers over this, but it's a nice fragrance & easily wearable by a man.
