That's interesting. I have no idea if its true, but if it is true that Mr Montale was the nose for CSP, I must say I am way more impressed with the Montale line than the old CSP line. hope you have sampling his work. I ahve tried almost every one but a few are vague in my memory by now.
Of the Ouds i love Oud cuir D'Arabie
Oud Rose Petale
Seems alot of men really like the Oud queen rose
I also really love the White musk
Sweet oriental dream (very similar to KM Loukoum without the powder)
Ta'if Rose ~ heavy bulgarian rose scent
Soleil de capri ~ hmmm.....Les Enfants du Soleil?
many really like the patchouli leaves......I'm not a huge patchouli fan but its supposed to be a fantastic patchouli fragrance.
Let us know what you think of the Montales and let us know if you find out the skinny on the CSP - Montale connection
