    I don't think its ugly its very Claude Montana. He is very modern and abstract designer and the bottle just fits his style.

    Totally agreed scentimus!!!
    The bottle is the perfect masculine traslation of the feminine bottle, very montana style reminescent of the sculptural and architectural french 80's wave

    So for further clarification...

    The Montana that's advertised in the red box on both fragrancenet's site and Perfume Emporium's site is the "good" version that's been brought back to production??

    Thanks in advance...

    The good news is a local pharmacy--sort of a Mom-N-Pop style--has 4 of the 2.5oz "Old Formulation" Montana Parfum d'Homme in an interior display case. The store is relatively sunlight free although it probably doesn't matter as they are boxed/sealed, and the A/C cranking a full 24/7.

    The bad news is they want $39.95 each. That is wayyyy too much considering the little difference between the 'vintage' and the 'new' versions and they are the 2.5 oz size, but again, they haven't sold a single one in the 9 months since I first saw them sitting there. I just might make them a lowball offer for all 4 bottles. probably work my way up to $20-$22 each tops (cello sealed red boxes) and see how motivated they are to move them..otherwise, I will have to pass.

    NATURAL SPRAY

    Of course, another give away is that the new bottles have the list of ingredients that are required to be listed on the box under EC regulations.

    I have both, and I have been doing extensive blind testing and my conclusion--good news indeed--is that there is very little difference between the two. The incense note is slightly more complex and prominent in the vintage formulation
    Ah, thank you for this wonderful clarification, scentemental. My vintage bottle of Montana Parfum d'Homme arrived today, and I have to concur about the incense. I will give it a bit longer to see if there are more differences, but I could happily drown in either vintage or reformulation.

    There is a review pending at the moment. Have a look the next few days (i hope at least).
    For me it is the best perfume i have ever put hands on and my signature perfume. I love it.
    Havana is a kind of similar perfume but there is no real comparison between the two of them, Montana is much more better in my opinion.
    And even a lot of people consider the bottle ugly, in my eyes it is a beauty. It looks like a zigurat going up to the top, near the stars the ancient assyrians were studying.

    11/10 for me.Period.

    Although this isn't something I'm personally interested in wearing right now, I've owned it at different times in the past and I think it is a masterpiece --both juice and the bottle are beautiful. A work of art.

    Wish this house would come out with something new. I think it has been a while.

    Monsieur Montana are you some kind of shill for Montana? I see 4 threads about Montana

    I bought a bottle of Parfum d'Homme. The box was genuine, with all the hallmarks, but the bottle inside turned out to be the grey one; the new 2001 scent, Montana Homme. I had been swindled. I ended up keeping it, though. I figured that I didn't have a stout citrus scent (however, synthetic) for summer. It's not bad, but it's not Parfum dHomme, either.

    Well, Montana Black Edition wasn't released *that* long ago, coming out within the past five years by the same great nose that did Parfum d'Homme (Red Box) and it smells equally superb. I do think all the variations of the Montana bottle look terrible, Black Edition included, but the juice inside is top-notch, with silly low pricing.

    agree, the bottle is kinda tacky, it spoils the experience a bit!

    You'd think the bottle would, but it's the stuff inside that conjures images of close encounters... of whatever kind.

    The bottle is based on the women version both based on the concept of the spiral a maple seed makes falling to the ground. I believe Serge Mansau created it. It does look better in black.

    Interesting. I always assumed it was this, thinking it was in Montana but just looked it up and it's in Wyoming.
