Well if you use your basic reading comprehension it does come across as racist, but since the poster explained himself I misunderstood his intention. I have to give him credit, since english is not his first language either.- - - Updated - - -

. One thing is sure: they cancelled their boutique in Paris and their future is very unsure (sorry for my english). I have these informations from one woman who looks behind the scenes, she studied the perfumery in France and she makes a perfume business in our country, she has a shop with exclusive brands (mostly niches, but she has some oriental brands too) and e-shop too. So i believe her.
The European branch is very badly managed and even their Vendome store was ghetto. Their store was suppose to have like 5 openings but it never happened because of the legal hagglings they had in court. I do not know that status quo. Icu you don't need to worry of them going out, because actually the fragrances are not even made in France, most are made in UAE lol, its all a big scam, but I could care less , the Montales I have are wonderful. The reason why I say it will be a very very low probability they would fold, is because, Montale makes a lot of money through distribution. I was on a trip to Santiago(Chile) for business, in South America, I spotted Black Aoud on 4 people. Montales are very popular among wealthy South America.
