Hi everyone, I've recently decided to take the plunge on a couple of Montales (more specifically, I've convinced my wife to get them for me for our anniversary...). In any case, the e-mail address on their website doesn't seem to work. I phoned them this morning (using the number on the Montale website, and the phone was answered by a French lady who told me "Perfume is finished. I don't know where the new shop is".
I am aware of the recent debacle with this brand, but if it's still possible to get in touch with them, I'd greatly appreciate if someone on here could please tell me how (particularly for the sake of the special offer that was apparently only available directly from Montale).
Seems like the only way to get them to respond to emails is to send them your credit card # and all of your info along with which frags and minis you want. They will take your money and tell you your order has been processed. Looks like they are moving so probably wait a couple of weeks before you order in any case.
Thanks very much! My wife found a new number somewhere on-line (don't ask me how), and I got in touch yesterday with a lady called Hiba. She says that the new Paris store will be fully operational from the 1st of June...
My wife also found an e-mail address for a guy who apparently runs a Montale store in Saudi Arabia; his quoted prices are even better than the price for ordering directly from the Paris store ($80 for 100ml). Does anybody know if his frags are authentic please?
Montale has been having various organizational problems lately and I personally would not try to order from them directly. On-line niche retailers like Luckyscent carry most of the Montale line and are very reliable. I have heard that Montale used to provide very good discounts when you bought from the directly but I would not try to do this until they have their act together and have a proper, secure on-line sales site (like Chanel has).

Thanks again everyone. The thread linked here seems to indicate that the guy in the UAE is selling legitimate stuff, but I'll probably just hold out until the 1st of June. The shop in question is called "Al Jazeera Perfumes", and funnily enough, it turns out they're selling Tanelli-branded bottles...

FWIW, the name of the guy in the UAE is "Shady" something or other, which already makes me hesitant to do business with him .

Don't make fun of a person's name. Especially when you're pronouncing it wrong.
