    Re: Montale Aoud Ever

    Thanks hednic.
    I am about 300 miles from NYC, upstate, but I do put in sample orders with them.

    It had me curious, as I've found Mancera's citrus openings to be pretty bright, almost harsh.

    Montale Aoud Ever

    I have a sample of Dark Aoud, and I have seen many comparisons of Aoud Ever to Dark Aoud.

    Re: Help me spend a gift card at Sephora

    I'd say Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver or Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine.
    You would need to test the Orange Sanguine, it may be worth your time.

    Re: Casual Coffee & Sandalwood?

    Correct, no sandalwood, but it is the most authentic coffee dominated fragrance I've smelled.

    Re: Casual Coffee & Sandalwood?

    Thanks for describing it.

    Re: Casual Coffee & Sandalwood?

    I saw that one as well, but didnt see sandalwood in the note breakdown, so I passed on it.
    Santal Noble is a nice scent, not meant for casual living however.

    Re: Casual Coffee & Sandalwood?

    I tried Santal Noble.
    Reminds me of Trussardi Inside Man in the dry down but smoother.
