Still no confirmation about shipping, still no answer to my messages, nothing...
Got my Aoud Lime today.
And one free 100ml Soleil de Capri (is this suitable for men also?) and Dew Musk 50ml
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
I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!
Is the sale still on? I went to the Montale website and there were no sale info. Help!

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"!
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.
2nd order recieved.
3.4 oz Aoud Damascus
3.4 oz Aoud Roses Petals
1.7 oz Aoud Ambre in a leopard pouch
"Why not seize the pleasure at once?"

3.4 oz Aoud Damascus
1.7 oz Sweet Oriental Dream in leather pouch...ok.....
This is very Lutens like, lakoumy, almondy, honey, yet not overly cloying..less powdery than Lutens Rahat.
Well atleast I wasnt handed Skin
Who wants to sell their bottle of Skin? pm me.
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?
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).
Here are details:
Montale GD S.A.

tel. +41 27 4802344
mob. +41 79 7078576
fax +41 27 3213168
Good luck and contact your credit card company!
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?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!).

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.
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.
