    Thumbs up Montale's crazy sale - What did you order - What did you get FREE?

    Just curious to know what did you order & what did you get FREE with your order.

    I just wish to know if the freebies are in quid pro quo with your order or have they just been thrown randomly (value wise).

    It would be easy to compare if during posting the following pattern is followed:

    Bottles Ordered & contents (with total value excl. shipping)


    Bottles Received FREE (please mention contents)




    I have still not received anything against my 2 orders yet . Its been 12 days since i got the despatch confirmation against my 1st order yet there is no sign of the package.

    I will update here whenever i get the packages.

    Ok...here we go.....

    In general I love the rose/musk combo and the Montale version is no exception. There is no great mystery here, the frag is pretty much rosey musk. It's a wonderful clean, green, citrusy "middle eastern" kind of rose, not a "tea rose". The frag is all roses at first but the warm, sweet musk soon appears and intensifies over time. This is one of the most long lasting edps I have ever tried and it outlasts even many of the frag oils I use. Roses Musk still smells sublime even after 12 hours....and I don't mean that you have to stick your nose on your skin to smell it...your wonderful musky aura tells you it is still going strong.
    To me the miracle of this scent is how light it is. Like its "aoud" sibling, Aoud Damascus, Roses Musk is very airy, light and fresh. It does not follow the deep dark chypre path of Black Aoud and Aoud Rose Petals which makes it very easy to wear.

    Weird.. I got my second order today. It was just a bottle of Black Aoud that only shipped on the 26th. That's crazy fast. I hope the first one comes soon though!

    This order was just a 100ml Black Aoud (Value $210)
    Total paid after shipping and fees, $93

    Freebie: a 50ml of Skin.

    Hey guys. Can you let me know what the name was that appeared on your credit card statement when the card was charged for this order. I still have not received a confirmation email for my order but i have a charge on my card that is for an amount for more than i ordered. But i was charged in switzerland. This would be a great help. Thanks.

    It appears as 'GD SA MONTANA CHE' on my credit card statement and ofcourse the amount debited is in AUS $ coz thats where i am.

    Its been more than 24hrs when my credit card was debited, yet there isnt any confirmation email from them. The way they are handling their customers is just so putting off.

    Well 'GD SA' is surely in common so it does appear that this could be it.
    Also you know the value of your order and if it is fairly close to your estimated order value then it would be conclusive proof.
    Keep in mind that due to fluctuating exchange rates and fees the actual amount debited to your credit card could be slightly higher than your estimate.

    Yup, that's it. I think the additional amount is a customs fee? Mine was a few bucks more on each order than the cart amount.

    Robbie....i doubt if its customs duty. Customs duty wouldn't be a few bucks on a 200$ order...besides how can they charge customs even before shipping it...and if they do so they should follow the same procedure for all orders...i did speak with another basenoter here (he is in the US) and he has got his order without any custom duty charges...plus my credit card got debited only for the order amount...its a different story that i haven't received any of my 2 orders yet...

    I wish there were someone at Montale to give us all the information we need.

    Yeah, I have no idea I just cross my fingers and close my eyes.
    And I feel your package pain.. I'm still waiting on my first package (11 days now), but got my second one 5 days after it shipped.

    I have placed 3 orders, and received the last one after three bussiness days later, but still waiting the first two orders.(8 days and counting)

    FYI:I have got a free 50 ml SKIN EDP with my 100 ml Black AOUD order.

    I ordered a 100ml of Aoud Hoggar Mota(Steam oud) and received a 100ml of Embruns d'Essaouira as my freebie. Got here fast too. 5 days. Oh, and the package had been opened and appeared to have had a rough time.

    Looks like they are bundling Skin as a freebie with most orders...its nice to get a freebie but I hope they give me something else instead (ordered 100ml Aoud Damascus, shipped today)

    I don't feel so bad anymore, although it will be nice when things have come to fruition for all.

    I ordered a bottle of Black Aoud last tuesday, my credit card was charged on thursday, but I have never received any email except for the one immediately after placing the order.

    Sound like some people get a shipping confirmation email a few days after that first email with their order number, no? But at the same time others aren't? Most puzzling.

    Also, seems like there isn't anyone returning emails... that or they are just overloaded somehow; I've asked for some sort of communication, any communication, to assure me that I am, indeed, getting what I've been charged for, but to no avail.

    Congrats to all of you with this swag they are sending, though! Even within those stories it seems all over the place!

    Ordered Black Aoud and Vetiver des Sables (a week ago). Still no confirmation e-mail about shipping. They didn't answer my message and I don't know if my CC is charged. They don't pick up the phone (called 6 times). Freebees? I'll be more than happy, if I receive my order :-(
