    Exclamation Any of the LADIES buying the MONTALES on sale?

    I know the guys are all going nuts over this sale but am wondering if all us gorgeous women have seen it too.
    Who is buying? And what are you buying??


    It seems to be an overstock clear out!!

    ...and yes it's true, they will ship from Switzerland to ANYWHERE in the world for a reasonable price!!!

    No...I won't buy anything without sampling first. I've learned that the hard way!

    I bought Blue Amber and Soleil de Capri, and hopefully I can split them with someone.

    Wise move Indiscreet.
    I ordered Wood & Spices for my husband, because we have a sample and he really likes it.

    I went to the site last night but I'm having trouble with the language barrier I think. Can someone tell me how the exchange rate is, I mean what is it in US dollars? I would love to get Blue Amber ...
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Today 1 Swiss Franc (CHF) = approx. 85 US cents

    You have to make sure you register first before trying to order Tao.
    I made that mistake first of all, tried to order but wasn't registered.

    Taolady - I am being thwarted as well. Though I suspect it has something to do with the firewall at work (pesky firewall!!!!) I'm going to try again from home.

    Ascella - I did not see Blue Amber on the site. Where did you find it?

    I'm also hoping to pick up full bottles of Sweet Oriental Dream and Vanille Absolut. If I can give them my $$$......

    They must be sold out of the BLUE AMBER sakecat22 because it was in the PARFUMS section and now it is gone.

    This is all overstock that as soon as it's gone, it's gone at those prices.
    Anybody that really wants something better get it soon.

    Maybe someone will do a split with you sakecat22 . I'm doing one with Ascella.

    One of the guys on the Men's Frag thread is lamenting what he wanted being gone also.

    Feeding Frenzy .... get 'em now or go without!

    Have sent them an e-mail. Sudsy I DID try to register and the system wouldn't accept my input. Just sat there.

    Will report!!

    Are you going for any of the Montales Jill?? Super prices & the Swiss Franc is almost equal to our dollar.

    Has anybody tried the GINGER MUSK??
    "A surprising, sparkling ginger starting point combined with blackberry and white musk on a base of red berries."
    That sounds pretty good I'm so tempted!

    Taolady did you sort out your problems registering on their site?

    I feel really unsophisticated and quite 'country bumpkin' - Montale sent me an email confirming order, price etc and it was in French. I'm looking at it going - 'I sooo hope I am translating/guessing this correctly'. I did email back asking them (nicely) if they could email me an English version.

    Gumoosh - try this site to help translate your letter.

    It is far from perfect, but you'll get the gist of what they said.

    Hope this helps.

    Here's the 2 emails I received Gumoosh. Are they the same as what you got? (waddid you order? hmmm? I may beg for a sample! )

    1st email:
    Nous vous confirmons la validation de votre commande numéro XXXXX.
    Un email vous sera envoyé lors de l'expédition de celle ci.

    English translation:

    I think the right traslation is:
    First mail
    Your order number is XXXXX
    You will receive an email after your order has been shipped

    Second mail
    We sent out your order number XXXXX

    But I don't know english/australian

    Danke. I should have thought of that - and you are SO right - info went through just fine when I used IE. But of course now I have already ( I think) placed an order through e-mail.........

    Seems that the BLACK AOUD is back up on the Swiss Montale site, if anybody is interested.
    Plus I just received an email from Montale:
    Dear Customers,
    Don't hesitate to order now, It stays only 5 days to benefit from our special offer (50&#37
    Then we shall begin a new adventure on www.espace-parfums.com with the perfumes of Pascal Morabito and Nejma

    I got those emails too. I thought it was something along those lines in the translation.
    I ordered a 50ml Sweet Oriental Dream. No worries about a sample. It is gorgeous! I'll PM you when I get it!

    My split of BLUE AMBER is on it's way from Ascella in Sweden!

    ... but there is no sign of my hubby's WOOD & SPICES from Montale in Switzerland! I was hoping it would get here for his birthday on Monday. Oh well!!

    Did anybody, besides Ascella get their order from Montale yet??
