    Default New Montale - BLACK MUSK - and its AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

    I love montale but have very disappointed with his latest string of releases! The Aoud ones had no oud, and the others just sucked. I heard of a new one called black Musk so I placed a blind order of it and it just came in. It comes in a black bottle and think of the scent as Black Aoud Light. It is literally Black Aoud with Musk to Musk (Two of my favorites) with some Smokey elements. Really really beautiful The Perfume Court has samples of this and any montale lovers of black Aoud and any of his musk scents should definitely try this. Finally a new release from Montale worthy of a full bottle!!!

    Oh Cairomerta - Musk to Musk is just fantastic - one of my faves too. This new Black Musk sounds amazing.

    This sounds good! I'm surprised I haven't heard about it until now. I hope it's available in the middle east.

    Does it still have that chemical Windex like nutmeg accord that musk to musk had? Sorry, I know many love it, but I absolutely hated that scent. I just don't get along with that particular musk chemical I guess, at least not in such a concentration. I also dislike Bulgari PH, which features a similar accord and I believe the same musk in high quantities.

    Such food for thought Cairomerta . Musk to Musk itself is addictive , gets you subconsciously and so long lasting. A darker version of it ,must simply be divine.

    I dont get that from this scent at all so maybe the "Black Aoud" patchouli vibe i get from this balances that portion out a bit. Its worth a sample if you like black aoud though.

    That's rather encouraging to hear, though I'll remain sceptical until I sample it - for the last two years, Montale has been releasing utter crap. I've never been a fan of Montale's musk scents but I'll add this to my 'to try' list.

    Musk to Musk is one of my favorites from Montale. And Black Aoud has many fans on BN. To say this feels like a combination of both certainly piques my interest!

    Thanks for sharing your impressions Cairo! I wouldn`t have paid attention on this one, since at my skin a lot of montale frags are very close to each other, and heavy stuffs that make them hard to wear. I`ve sold my Black Aoud for this reason, it was too intense for me and i couldn`t see myself wanting to wear it. Maybe i`ll like this muskier, light, version of it.
    Do this one has the same price of the aoud line?

    I purchased this directly from Montale Paris. I ordered it over the phone and it arrived in about 7 days. The price was only $125 as it is not part of the Aoud line. It is part of the regular line but i swear there is a strong Aoud note in it.

    The description of Black Aoud Light, sounds to me like that Juliette Had a Gun fragrance, Midnight Oud. Would you compare Black Musk to Midnight Oud cairomerta?

    If you happen to visit Dubai, Cairo, gimme a PM. I'll give you directions to a dealer who sells Montale frags that are made exclusively for this market. You won't find them at the Paris Gallery showrooms.

    Hi Mike. I actually have Midnight Oud and love it but I wouldnt say it smells the same at all. This one literally smells like Montale took Black Aoud and mixed it 50/50 with Musk to musk. It weaves in and out with the smell of those two scents. You get the dark patchouli aoud combo of black aoud and then you get wafts of that very clean Musk to Musk smell. Midnight Aoud has a more metallic topnote to me and a lot of saffron. This doesnt. Its really nice and again something that people would maybe like who had trouble with the intensity of Black Aoud.

    Interesting, I had the same curiosity about this one and midnight oud. Thanks for clarifying!

    Just tried my first Montale today - Black Oud and now I want more samples. Oh dear... I like Black Oud but think I need something darker/woodier and less floral.

    Oud Cuir d'Arabie would probably be your best bet for something darker and woodier, as most of the other ouds have floral notes to some extent.

    Interesting. I am usually very sensitive to saffron in fragrances and I don't get too much of it in Midnight Oud. Nonetheless, thanks for the comparisons. I personally, love the intensity of Black Aoud.

    cool, this sounds like a great scent. However I feel as if I need to test all the other Montale scents to 'understand' any new releases. Without that I will lost as to where the new scents fit in into the line up.

    Oud Cuir d'Arabie is definitely one I want to try next. How about Embruns D'Essaouira? Any opinions on this one?

    OK I found the reviews. It seems the iodine puts most off. Maybe I'll skip this one.

    Yep, it's awesome alright! It didn't quite click with me the first time I smeared the sample all over my knee, so I went on to sniff other samples. But the middle notes is where it started to get good. And the drydown was the best and it lasted forever. This definitely reminds me of Musk to Musk but an octave lower. There is some resemblance to Black Aoud, but Black Aoud is earthier and mossier, takes much longer to develop and is faster to fade on the skin. Just ordered my Black Musk from the Montale website. I love the fact that it is so much cheaper there and they add a complimentary 20ml bottle of your choosing.

    What is the address for Montale's online shop? Preferably, the online shop in English.

    They don't have an online shop, but if you go to their website montaleparfumsparis.com you can request an order by phone or e-mail. Shipping to the US is free if you buy a 100ml bottle.
