Unfortunately, it's housed in one of those god-awful shiny pink bottles...
Of all the colours they could have chosen. I'll be in Paris, later the week, and will have to ask them about the significance of these pink bottles. A new line?
Sounds interesting though. I'm curious to how good this one may be.
LOL! Don't hold your breath. Out of all the news ones released, over the last two years, Full Incense is the only one worth considering.
Oh, that's at the top of my list, along with Pure Amber (from the Confidential collection) and Mango Manga (I'd like to know what it smells like with added perfume oil).
Montale released these pink about 6 months ago. These pink bottles looked too semi-fashion :P And the SA told me that they were too feminin for a man :P
^ It's probably unofficially known as the Girlie Dior-esque Collection, if the other releases are anything to go by...
You're kidding right. That just came out of the Montale name generator software, I bet. Don't all Montales have Aoud, Ambre and Rose already? Will still like to try it though. Pink shiny is pushing it a little!
Montale seriously loves Aoud, how many aouds does that house have?
"It blends aoud, amber and rose into the most gorgeous fragrances; very light on the rose and it features the warmth of the aoud and amber."
Throw in sandalwood and we have another release. I'll still try this one, as long as it smells good, it is a job well done.
Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage), Concentré D'Orange Verte...etc.
Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.
Please PM me !
Aoud Amber Rose is currently being offered on Ebay.
I can't keep up with all these Montale releases!
I guess I'll stick to Black musk and Aoud Amber Roses for the near future and work out the rest later.

Well, I did some research into the Montale releases and it appears that they've always released 6-10 creations per year (usually 2-4 at the beginning of the year, a couple more half-way through the year and 2-4 more during the autumn/winter season). It's just that we're more on the ball with this house, than a few years ago, so it appears the number of releases have increased when, in fact, they actually haven't. Too bad the quality control has dipped, though...
Any thougths on Aoud Amber Rose?

There are a few threads here
It reminds me a little of PdN Oud Amber. The rose is pretty subtle in this one IMO.
