    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 got a 100 ml of soliel and a free 50 ml of skin. I as well do not like skin. I'm probably going to get rid of it for real cheap.

    There's currently a postal strike in the UK and will not end until next Tuesday or Wednesday. So, even if my order's been dispatched, it'll take a lot longer to get to me...

    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.
