You can now order from them on-line but there's no option for adding extra perfume oil, in addition to the 50mls being unavailable.
Thread: RIP Montale?
This mess could be a movie (a bad one).
Don't get me wrong...I LOVE Montale fragrances, and have more of them than any other house. BUT they are strange all the way around. No one has ever seen the "owner" There is a guy in Oman somewhere pumping out ideas for them...Prolifically...Their email account is a hotmail account. They shut down with no warning last spring and no one heard from them until the reopened in a new location a few weeks ago...mysterious.
... a new location that is not a shop either.
Kurt smells like Teen Spirit
I love red vetyver but it's about time this story comes to a conclusion! Either come back or die....all this ongoing Montale mystery is frustrating LOL.
Harvey Nichols Istanbul received a collection of Montale recently. 24 fragrances are available here.
Probably in December of 2013!
The real kick-in-the-teeth for me is that I have been waiting patiently to order Cuir d'Arabie 100ml from Montale. It is $101.77 plus you get 20ml bottle of anything else free. They now say, NO shipping to the USA. What a rip-off. EVERYONE else is selling this stuff for $160/bottle with no gift. If this stupid company wants my money they will get their crap together. How can you not ship to the USA??? What percentage of their overall business do you think came from the USA? Half? Stupid...
The webpage: www.montaleparfums.com/ is not longer available.
Doesn't that tell you something???
Perfume lovers of the world UNITE!!!!!
No ship to Brazil too.
Too bad, I was ready to order some cans as the previous times. Maybe there are another brands that want my money.
Well seeing as a lot of people were asking. I have just had a pleasant transaction with Montale.
Ordered 2 bottles on Thursday 29th November and here they sit in my hands on Wednesday 5th December. I've had worse service from "functioning" companies within the UK.
My review: Excellent communication and quick turnaround.
For good, anatomic reasons, scent fosters memory more readily than any other sense.
Congrats on your purchase. Waiting for a friend to arrive from France with their two latest offerings: Aoud Ever & Candy Rose
I'm glad they decided to close down when they did...it gave me time to get over them. I probably would have wasted a bunch of money if I'd have had the option.
