Harvey Nichols Istanbul sells Montale collection together with Mancera, what a coincidence
The fragrances, the fonts, "Pierre Mancera" lol , it is impossible not to see that these two are related.
About the fragrances, I'm not impressed with the Mancera oud line, they are really a lot like Montale ouds, especially Black Aoud. Nothing new.
But they have two gems. Roses Vanille is a great fragrance, better than Tom Ford Noir de Noir, definitely. But it leans more on feminine side.
Cedrat Boise, this is great as well. It has many layers but the thing I got from CB is that it is an Aventus copy, but a better copy. If you do not like the 90s sports fragrance vibe in Aventus, imo mainly caused by apple, CB doesn't have that, but has a refined leather note instead. Great fragrance, recommended.
