congrats!!! i love montale! the way they blend and balance is incredible!
if you like cuir arabie i would suggest to try royal aoud....its just like arabie but better.....it has that band aid smell arabie has but rose and a fruit note dance back an forth throughout the wearing along side the band aid smell....its really quite impressive!
you see everyone is always complaining that montale has too many fragrances out....but if you knew the house you would know that montale takes a concept like aoud rose....and makes 10 different combinations. one would go from oud to rose (black aoud) one would go from rose to oud ( i think queen roses....theres so many i get confused!) one would go from oud to rose back to oud ....there are so many that are real close in notes.....they just differ from top middle sideways and basenotes.
white oud i love....but i own black oud with extra and blue amber....and white oud is like black oud thaat turns into blue amber......i mean its not exactly blue amber..but you get my point....to understand this is to understand montale! thats why whenever I hear man montale has too many fragrances out.....i always say to myself sample 30 or so of them and you will understand why!!!! everyone is almost the same just different!
