    I do enjoy Red Aoud right now, it seems different enough to warrant a purchase to me. A lot of the oud scents just don't hold up to me, there's a certain cheapness I get from the line...might just be in my head. Black Aoud was completely underwhelming to me, and a few of the samples I've gotten (Aoud Ambre, Vanille Absolu) have not given me reason to change my opinion. With such a large line and a decent number of fans though...I'm waiting for the one to wow me. I'm interested in trying Dark Aoud though...and some of their non-oud scents.

    I don't think they're worth what they ask for them in stores though...I would never buy one without a discount. Back when they were in business I got a quote of around $160 for 2 50ml and a 20ml, I would take that offer again if they re-opened. Fingers crossed.

    +1 for Dark Aoud. If you want something other than an Aoud, Blue Amber is fantastic.

    On their Facebook page they're saying that they will reopen the shop in late September. Let's see if that actually happens and what will be left of Montale by then, also if they continue with their sweet deal of a free 20 ml bottle when you ordered 100 ml or 2x50 ml, which was pretty much worth it.

    Almost everything that they have said since December has not happened. They push back dates of reopen, give up their phone number, won't answer emails, and distributors are back ordered. I looked over their perfumer Ammar Atmah's facebook page but aside from saying he worked for Montale, the rest is religious Islamic stuff and anti Israeli propaganda.

    I bought them locally at a shop called parfums de France in Tyson's Corner, VA. You can call them, I believe they will ship.

    CORRECTION: I was told that They are NOT shipping to the USA at this time. They are only shipping to The UK and Europe.

    Well Bgoc, there are some cheaper Montales that cost 80€ (Sweet Oriental Dream, Patchouli Leaves, Black Musk, Vanilla Absolu...)

    If I were you i'd choose either Blue Amber, Sweet Oriental Dream, Red Aoud or Patch Leaves. Dark Aoud is quite good but a bit austere and dry for my tastes.

    IMO, Louban is smoother than Black Aoud, Almost the same scent. If you like leather, what about Cuir d'Arabie?

    I also personally think that Black Musk and Black Aoud are too similar to have both. I would choose a different one instead of one of those two.

    By the way: much cheaper shipping than to Spain. We are also a neighbouring country, so wtf?

    I got a response by email from Montale. They will not ship to the US anymore. Sad. No more free 20ml bottles and no more extra concentrations...

    Dear Customer,

    We don't send in USA. We are at Bergdorf Goodman or you can pass an order on luckysent website.

    Sincerely, Amélie

    So I went to the Bergdorf Goodman website and searched for "Montale" and"Black Aoud" and got no results. Went to Luckyscent and they carry only 50 ml size Dark Aoud for $110. Looks like I will have to search harder or give up on Montale. Just hope that when and if the Paris store opens that they resume their previous policies.

    I would assume one 100ml or two 50ml bottles would be the minimum. Shipping is eur 10 or 17 depending upon the quantity ordered.

    I have a new plan:

    100ml black oud
    20 ml aoud cuir d arabie

    100 ml of sweet oriental dream
    20 ml full incense

    True, but Montale gave free 20ml bottles with purchase, I just don't understand their logic, the USA accounted for more than half their sales, and there are no shipping restrictions like in Germany...Sometimes Montale does some stupid things...

    Just checked...128 Euros ($165)for a bottle of Cuir d'Arabie is expensive. MOST online retailers have a set price of 123 Euros. ($160)

    I'm with the Oud Cuir d'Arabie and Dark Aoud crowd.

    Can't imagine why anyone would require the haute concentration of either - they are both monsters straight-up off the shelf.

    There are plenty of places to buy them online...
