    Both sound very interesting. Strange that Aoud Orange doesn't list any type of orange in the notes (on Fragrantica anyway). I need to explore this house much further this year for sure. Quite a few I haven't tried yet.

    100? wow. Ok, maybe I'll have to pick and choose some of their more popular one with notes I may like. Too hard to keep up with everything.

    Interestingly enough, they have already hit that mark. I now have 101 in my collection (up from 93 in June 2013) and there are still about 10 that I need to purchase.

    Did the bird tell you "Santal de Mysore" or "Aoud & Pine"? Because if he did, one would be correct.

    Just got at e-mail from The Perfumeshoppe in Vancouver/Scottsdale that these two are coming soon to their shops so these must be Durrani releases and will eventually make it to other retailers in the US carrying the Montale line.

    Durrani is the "good" version correct?

    It's just the one that happens to be distributed in the US and easy to find.

    Orange Aoud is the same usual boring stuff you can expect from Montale. It's oud with a sprinkle of Fanta.
    My current top five:

    Guerlain - Mitsouko
    Naomi Goodsir - Bois d'ascèse
    Parfum d'Empire - Equistrius
    Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier - Santal Noble
    Czech & Speake - Oxford & Cambridge

    Aoud Melody has a nice spicy opening. I can smell the clove saffron and some other spice which I'm not sure of right from the get go. It eventually turns into a nice sandalwood dry down. I don't get that much leather and although the oud is present, it's not in your face like others in the line. Orange Aoud is more floral to my nose, and I found the oud is more prominent in this one. Don't get any orange at all, but a faint hint of leather at the end after a few hours on my skin. Longevity was good on my skin with both and both projected well. Of these two purchases, I prefer Aoud Melody.

    I've tried Aoud Orange briefly, sprayed on a paper testing strip.

    I definitely got orange, a nice balance with the aoud at first but gradually becoming stronger and sweeter. Granted, this was in the first 5 minutes or so, and I cannot say what happens after that. I'm always hesitant to make judgments about fragrances based on brief on-paper tests, but I didn't find much appealing about this one.

    Thank's for the replies, Colin and Noggs. Nothing new on the Montale Horizon, so it seems.

    Aoud Orange is mostly focused on... violet. A huge, intrusive and tart violet flower. For fans only.

    Aoud Melody seems to derive its olfactory track from a sour hair lotion. Disgusting.

    By the way I briefly talked to Mark Buxton at Esxence, he makes crap scents but he's absolutely friendly and funny. He started barking against the "bloody oud" that's so trendy these days - correctly saying that it's a cheap and boring note which was out of fashion years ago before being unexplicably and unnecessarily retrieved, and that a really few percent of perfumers uses decent oud (not Montale - but for example, Du Bois do, they own plantations of aquilaria to extract 100% pure oud to use). The fun fact was that Montale was like two booths on the left

    LOL! That's for that.

    I'm not much of a Buxton fan but he has a point.

    I was not impressed with either, and Melody smells like cheap hair spray.

    Although I don't find them as interesting as some of their predecessors they're not unpleasant to me. I guess I am in the minority.
