    I haven't tried any of those, but there are also a few new fragrances that are Paris-only at this time and may be exported later on. One of them is called Louban, an incense fragrance, I think. My decant should arrive today and I'll report back. I'd love to know what the super-pricey Santal de Mysore smells like... I wonder if they bought real Mysore sandalwood from a supplier that has old stock, which I've heard some firms still have (and are selling it for retarded sums).

    They also are available in 10ml roll-on for 90 Euros. I own a 10ml roll-on of Highness Rose. It's pure rose absolute and I use straight sometimes but mainly for layering for an added oomph to other rose frags. Just a dab is all it takes. I've always wanted to try Santal de Mysore.

    I'm not 100% postive, but to the best of my knowledge I believe High Rose is the only absolute. The others are mixtures. You can e-mail Montale and get the correct answer - montaleparfums@hotmail.com

    According to Montale these are pure oil blends with the absolutes, at least jasmine, rose, saffron and santal. Highness Rose is indeed very good, a friend recommended me to layer it with MKK, a real hit.

    I would love to get some Santal de Mysore...

    Wish we could seek permission from 'the Mods' & do a split for 100ml Santal de Mysore....

    I've already tried it in Montale shop in Paris a week ago. First impression, they are really expensive. Montale Confidental Collection bottles is small, beautiful, deluxe. They are all pure perfume. With just one single spray, the scent will haunt you the whole day long. All the scents are not strong. They are soft, mild, smooth, and very natural. I think Rose and Musc are the best in the collection. But actually, I don't find it very interest to buy any in the collection. All the scents are too feminin for me. Besides, they are too expensive. To me, keep enjoying Black oud, white oud, velvet oud, red oud is the brilliant decission.

    Hi All , Highness Rose is exclusive however, you can buy it in KSA at an exclusive boutique. I sampled it last week and it is very good. The price tag is half of what you have quoted for the 100ml in the previous thread.

    Hi All those of you who know me from Basenotes please can you email me on my basenote acct rather than my Ebay account as I am receiving numerous requests for the Montale confidential collections asking for discounts and requests as they are fellow basenoters . I don't know who you are, it's becoming very confusing.The chances are that the supplier will have to order from Paris and will probbably need a minimum order of more than one. As usually suppliers take a minimum order of 6 and that's for the "regular" Montales. At the moment all I know for certain is that Higness Rose is available 3 of . I have no idea if Montale Santal de Mysore in available KSA. Thank you

    I was in the Paris Montale store on Monday, the window featured the Confidential offerings. I was too nose fatigued to try them. I did buy one from the new parfum extrait Gold Collection, Aoud Leather. It's amazing. The SAs in the shop are the nicest I've encountered anywhere in Paris. Young, informed and no attitude extreme.

    Some confidential collection fragrances were accidentally sent to a well-known online retailer, which were on sale for 'normal' Montale prices! Unfortunately they're all gone now - I missed getting a bottle by a few minutes. Oh wel.

    hi Moreda, In KSA only 100mls are only available, prices depend on where you buy them from and which Montale you buy each one is differently priced . I also am in a privilaged position in that I am able to get all perfumes and ouds and cosmetics from exclusive and selected boutiques at a VIP rate, hence im a Powerseller. 140.00 EUR = 129.424 GBP
    Euro United Kingdom Pounds so is that for 4 x100ml Montales? Making 1=33 GBP approximately?

    If that is the case the yes I have procured 100ml Montales at less than 33 gbps per bottle which would be cheaper than Europe and I would not have the obligation to buy 4 either.

    Wearing Highness Rose today from a sample.

    Very strong, a very waxy rose that from afar smells vivid, realistic and garden-fresh and from close up smells juicy, acidic and very green. I imagine I will smell like roses all day long as this stuff is just not letting up. Amazing sillage/longevity.

    You're right Mike. This is what I thought too. I loved it . I still love it and if it were somewhat more affordable and available in the US , I would buy it.

    Last time I checked it was available from The PerfumeShoppe in Scottsdale Arizona for $190 for 100ml. This is a very good price.

    Very Good indeed. This is the price of a regular.

    By mail they told me 500 euros for 100ml and 300 euros for 50ml, wich is VERY high.

    Hey, 190usd for 100ml of pure parfum, is this a bug?

    Montale Paris sell it directly for 500 euros, wich means 740usd.
