    I am loving the Roses Musk. I love the combo just in general and this version does not disappoint. The beautiful Montale "middle eastern rose" dominates the opening and the musk just comes on slowly from behind and continues to build for hours. The musk is warm and sweet but not very "dirty". The longevity is astounding to me for an edp....12 hours +. I've read elsewhere and someone here mentioned that they find a "gasoline" quality to this scent but I don't get that at all. I find it very warm & sweet.

    I find that Aoud Flowers is quite similar to Rose Petals, slightly sweeter. If you want to benefit from the sale, you could order it blind.

    Got my Aoud Lime today.

    And one free 100ml Soleil de Capri (is this suitable for men also?) and Dew Musk 50ml

    Yipee!

    By the way, looks like they really closed their Swiss online shop now. There's only one website now, the Paris one

    Yeah, Soleil de Capri is actually marketed towards men. The opening might seem a touch sweet to you, but that fades quickly and is really great.

    I wore it yesterday (put it on at 8am, 4 sprays) and got a big compliment at 9am... and later that day after 5pm, I was on the elevator at home to check the mail and got another compliment (even though I could barely detect it). So it's not overpowering and lasts and lasts

    It seems that at Montale the freebies are inversely proportional to the no. of bottles ordered. I wish i had ordered less

    Cool! It's indeed listed for men on the Parfums Raffy website I looked on,but I can see this on women too. I tried it and it's exactely like you said. Nice!

    The Dew Musk has to go to wifey I think. Haven't tried that one yet.

    Send Florence an email (info@parfums-montale.com) and ask. They still had Black Aoud as of the day before yesterday. (Who knows what else they have...)

    Good luck!

    Nope...none yet...

    I finally did elicit a response from Montale through email. They didnt give me any shipping dates but said my orders had been shipped right after they received them and i should wait until the beginning of the next week. If i dont receive them by that time, then they would confirm it with the swiss post and resend them.


    That freebies statement was made only after reading what others had got. I thought people who have ordered 1 bottle had got 2 freebies and people who ordered two just got 1 free bottle. Not a rule i would say but the trend reveals that.

    Well I hope you get alot of freebies for all of the waiting that's for sure.
    They didn't stuff my boxes full of free stuff but what they did send me was amazingly great and I'd rather have a couple "amazingly greats" than a whole bunch of "what the heck am I supposed to do with this crap"!
    Good luck....

    Confirmed shipment on September 27, 2007.
    Received them today, October 5, 2007.
    Pretty fast since I am in Canada.

    Ordered 50 ML Attar and 100ML Rose Petals. Received 50 ML Skin as a freebie.
    Don't really like Skin. Have to think about what I want to do with it.

    Good luck everyone.

    I ordered 50ml Oud Cuir D'Arabie at 65 francs = 28 pounds. I just checked my bank account and they charged me 37 pounds twice!!!!!!!I mailed the info@ ...address but no response . Now I seriously fear I have been ripped off as I ordered just before the site went down. Does anyone have a phone number or any advice please?

    Hi Hirch_Duckfinder!

    I ordered on the 26th of September. As I said in my previous post, received just nothing. No reactions to my e-messages too. My CC is charged. Of course, you could call them, but, in my case, they didn't pick the phone too (I called 6 times).

    The double charge is obviously their mistake, the 9 additional pounds might be duties or VAT plus shipping. I don' think they're ripping people off, just totally chaotic. I never got an answer to my inquiry about Hoggar Mota.

    Don't worry, I heard that it happened to someone on MUA and they refunded the money. Just keep calling. This is what she said in her post, I hope is alright if I quote here :

    What a nice lady at (the former) Montale swiss site! I had trigger-fingered +++
    the same order 2 times, and hoped that they would figure it out, and also sent numerous emails, with no response. Both charges showed up on my credit card. Today I called, and the gentlewoman immediately credited my back for one charge. When I asked what to do if I got an extra package, she said to enjoy their present to me! What a hassle it must be for them. Now... curious what I will actually receive (and how many!).
    BTW, I sent an email on the 5th asking if there were anymore Roses Musk left and ordered a few others. I have had no reply yet. Has anyone had any response from them?

    Wow I finally got my order today and I hit the jackpot. It took about 3 weeks from the date I ordered but it was worth the wait.

    Ordered:
    Aoud Lime 100 ml
    Black Aoud 100 ml x 2 bottles

    Got for free:
    Attar 100 ml unboxed, but got a pouch
    Royal Oud 100 ml, no box or pouch
    7 Aoud samples

    Now I need to go try these. I ordered Black Aoud blind!

    It is kind of bothering that Montale doesn`t treat people nearly equally. Some have huge loads of freebies, and others not so much.
    Oh well, as much as I love Montale scents, this house has given me very inconsisant image of themselves, anyway. (ridicilously bad websites and all that...)


    When I ordered Steam Aoud (100ml), I didn`t even know about the possible free stuff. I made my order before I got into this thread, so I really was expecting only that Steam Aoud, which was blind buy for me, btw.

    I got Soleil du Capri (100ml) free. No box, but a velvet pouch.
    I hadn`t smelled SdC before, but I was quite sure that I would not like it : Not my usual style these kind of fruity white musk scents with white floral notes.

    However, I was very pleasantly suprised when I sprayed it for the first time....I mean, what a yummy scent it actually is! Very nice indeed. Almost gourmand scent in a way, with that crispy, candied orange vibe. Delicious and cheerful scent with good lasting power.


    Steam Aoud is great one too : Perhaps most true to the real pure Oud in the whole Montale line. Subtle, dry, crispy, woody, sensual and quite quiet. Not a pungent of monstrous by any means. Just a pure Oud with the nice touch of smooth sandalwood.
    I don`t get any cumin, amber or that hoggar motta oil which are listed.
    Nah...it really is a combination of oud and sandalwood - no more or less. A great Montale Aoud to use anywhere-anytime without the need to be cautious on the trigger.

    It's not Montale's fault, but rather their ex-distributor located in Switzerland.

    I didn't know about the free stuff when I ordered either. I do wish I ordered Steam Aoud as I got a sample of it and it is nice.

    as the thread says, it is a crazy sale.

    I too wish there was better communication. I'm not sure why they haven't responded to any emails of mine regarding additional orders, post-sale. One can only speculate. I never fancied myself unrespondable, but then that would be what everyone thinks, I daresay. Perhaps my bank is over-riding my email account to keep me from going hog wild through the Aouds. Lord knows an external check might be handy, somedays. I would still love to get Aoud Lime, though, Edgartown National Bank, if you are reading this.

    Anyhow, as it goes, I ordered 100ml of Black Aoud, and it took so friggin long to get to me without any shipping emails or anything of that sort that I was happy just to get the bottle I requested. But they did throw in a roller set of 15mls containing Oud Queen Roses, Intense Tiare, and Wood & Spices.

    Can't say that I love any of these as much as the BA, the OQR is pretty... I'll wear it. I'm just rootin tootin thrilled to have bought 100ml of Black Aoud for 95 bucks!
    --------------------------------------
    in an interesting discovery, I unscrewed the top of my just-arrived Black Aoud (100ml) and the level of fluid inside was about halfway down. blah.

    My details are valid too. They are from the official commercial list, commune Valais, status 2007. I just forget to say, that these details are from that list.

    I didn't get answer to my 3rd e-message too. Just the confirmation from Montale's Internet provider about delivery.

    Got for free:
    Attar 100 ml unboxed, but got a pouch
    Royal Oud 100 ml, no box or pouch
    7 Aoud samples

    Now I need to go try these. I ordered Black Aoud blind!

    Given that you're selling Attar and Black Aoud, I take it you liked neither.

    You're right I don't like either one of them. Though I do like Aoud Lime and Royal Aoud and I already own Aoud Cuir d'Arabie

    Hey, hirch!

    I'm pretty much in the same boat as you, so you're not alone. For now, I'd take it easy - they've probably been inundated with loads of orders. Also, the current state of Royal Mail is definitely not helping matters...

    Even if you got just one bottle free or a load of samples the original offer of half price on nearly everything was a bargain anyway and the postage if i remember correctly was virtually the same price to you, no matter how many bottles you ordered.
    The fact that people reordered and received freebies even on 2 or 3 new orders spoke volumes i think the sun will rise in the west before you see a deal like this again from any retailer.

    I'm in limbo right now as to my order. They were very quick in responding when I emailed them inquiring about ordering. I sent my Paypal to the "info" address rather than the "paypal" address-- but when I checked later on my Paypal account, it said the transaction was completed, though I don't know if that means that they have taken the money (I'm not very experienced with Paypal).

    What frustrates me is that they never responded to any of my subsequent emails. So I don't know if I'm getting anything or not. I never received any kind of confirmation or shipping info.

    Don't give up hope! I've seen quite a few posts (esp on MUA) where people ordered, never got a shipping confirm, yet their package arrived with no problem.
    I've ordered 3 times from the sale and the packages arrived anywhere from 7-12 days from when they were shipped. Good luck!

    Mine arrived today after the lengthy postal strike here in UK:

    Ordered

    White Aoud 100ml

    Freebies received

    Sweet Oriental Dream 50ml, in pouch not box

    I ordered on the evening of 27th Sept and got confirmation email straight away, next day I got shipping confirmation. Had my shipped by priority. So that's 12 days but postal service here had been on strike the last 5 or 6 days. Hope you guys with problems get things sorted out.

    No luck on contacting them re. double charging. The email address has ceased to work....the phone remains unanswered....

    BUT ON THE UP SIDE....

    my package arrived

    ordered Oud Cuir D'Arabie 50ml

    Freebie : 3 x 5ml roll ons. One each of
    Intense Tiare (no interest to me)
    Wood and Spices (no interest to me)
    Oud Queen Rose (Yippee - I was considering buying a bottle of this in the sale. I like it - not as much as Roses petals, but I like it )

    Placed order on 9/29.My order of 100 ml bottles of Vetiver De Sables and Attar arrived today. They gifted me a 100ml bottle of Soleil De Capri. Vetiver De Sables was a blind buy. It rocks I'm happy!

    So I called Florence, remember they're 7 hours ahead of us, try calling at 2-3AM central time to catch them at 10AM. She emailed me the list of Montale stock they have left:

    Dear XXXX,
    thank you for your call but the connection was bad.
    Here is the stock:
    Black Aoud 100ml
    White Aoud 100ml
    Aoud Lime 100ml
    Aoud Queen Roses 100ml
    Steam Aoud 100ml
    Aoud Flowers 100ml
    The price is 93,00 swiss francs instead 185,00
    Aoud Cuir d'Arabie 50ml
    Attar 50ml
    Aoud Damascus 50ml
    The price is 58,00 instead 115,00 swiss francs.
    And the shipping is 30,00 swiss francs.
    Best regards
    Florence

    I put my 1st order on the 18th and the 2nd on the 29th of Sept.

    No sign of any Montale packet yet.

    Florence did respond to a query last week where she said i should wait until the beginning of this week and if nothing turns up she'd resend it.

    I wrote to her on Tuesday evening but i haven't heard a thing.
    Today i wrote to her again. I hope she responds to this.
    Else i'd have no other option but to call her.

    I don't know how these people are functioning. Its hard to believe that they are so callous and don't give a s**t about what their customers are saying.
    They may be extremely generous with their gifts etc but i don't think that really fills in for what they lack in.

    My 3rd and final order was shipped Oct 4th, received here in FL Oct 10. I had asked (and paid extra) for some specific samples, but she didn't include them. I got a couple of other small bottles that I'll sell and make up for it though... about what you'd get from a regular order to Paris.

    Final Order:
    100ml Roses Musk
    50ml Ginger Musk
    50ml White Musk
    (musky, eh?)
    50ml Crystal Flowers

    Free:
    50ml Ginger Musk (hmm, I didn't need 2...)
    50ml Orient Extreme (definitely not for me)

    There was a different email address (with that domain) on the sticker that was on the box. I'll check it when I get home and put it here.

    Guys, the site has been changed to http://www.nejma-parfums.com/ however, it's still the same people! I am guessing that since they switched over, you need to use the new address. Try going to the new website (above) and writing to them.

    I am kind of in the same boat because I placed an order...and paid, and am still waiting. I am trying to remain calm.

    Got my order 9 days after confirmation of shipping which was a few days after I ordered.

    Ordered Black Aoud 100mL
    Oud Cuir d'Arabie 50mL

    Got a free Oud Cuir d'Arabie 50mL - looks like they gave the massive tons of goodies to the first round of buyers - in any case, I'm glad they set me something I like vs something I don't like such as Vetiver des Sables or something.

    Iggy, thats weird. I first made an order an I got my bottle one week later. Then I made my second order and again, one week later it arived. I also mailed them with every order if the payment went ok, and everytime they mailed me back the same day.

    If the money is billed from your creditcard acount I'd try to mail/ contact them through the Paris website. The Swiss Montale website doesn't excist anymore.

    Thanks robbie...just mailed them at this id...also sent a Bcc at

    montaleparfums@hotmail.com

    Hopefully they'd be courteous enough to respond to this now.

    I mean i just can't believe this...They've taken 500$ from my credit card and then they don't want to communicate....This is absurd....
