    Default Montale

    I have used montale black aoud, Kabul aoud and aoud leather. I want to buy two more montale perfumes for men. Which one is the best in longevity and projection.

    All Montales have enormous projection and longevity. If you like something more animalic than aoud leather, you can check Oud cuir d'Arabie. I also like Aoud Lime a lot (saffrony).

    Dark Aoud is a great fragrance and has as with all Montale's great projection and longevity.

    Is Oud neccesary? if not indulge yourself with some Sweet Oriental Dream or Blue Amber. I love Red Aoud too.

    You have Kabul Aoud? Please tell us about it. There are no reviews anywhere and although I have no doubt it exists, Montale used to claim it does not. Very curious about this one so please share your thoughts!

    Oh, I also like Aoud Lime and Dark Aoud a lot!

    Moon Aoud is very nice. And +1 on Full Incense.

    IMO, you can't go wrong with:

    Oud Cuir d'Arabie
    Louban
    Black Musk
    Wild Oud
    Red Oud

    These all smell very distinct and unlike each other.

    For a non-oud offering, Chocolate Greedy is pretty great.

    As top note you will get cedar with a herbal touch. Then you get coffee and something like patchouli. ending up with guaiac wood. Longevity is good. But projection is less compared to black aoud.

    Red Aoud by Montale - Upon application, an explosion of warm and vibrant, red pepper, coupled with the mustiness of aoud and a lovely, rich, red, fully-bloomed rose, with faint, lemony pixies flitting about, bestir for recognition. This vivacious blend frolics to the middle. Heaps of saffron, with its earthy and dusty, floral aspects, tame the adventuresome pepper and rose, aided by a muted, yet biting, anise from the keen cumin, and further assisted by a winsome, mysore sandalwood, which imparts its buttery and sweet woodiness. This sensuous melange covorts with the magical aoud, giving rise to hints of an inoffensive powderiness as well as a delicious cocoa, and flows to the awaiting base. Here, in the capable base, as the beautiful rose fades away, the drenched, citrusy greenness of haitian vetiver, empowered by the enabling orris, steps forward to morph the melange aforementioned into a delectable, chocolate drydown. This sexy and potent composition has very good longevity, 10-13 hours, and projection.

    From the ones I've tried, Aoud Lime, Dark Aoud and Red Vetyver have great projection and tremendous longevity.

    Is it still possible to order directly from Montale?

    Was looking at getting Dark Aoud and perhaps a small 20ml bottle of some Attar. :\

    No, they're not currently accepting orders like they used to. They're saying until September. And I have a feeling that the goody 20 ml bottles will no longer be gifted when they re-open, which is a true shame.

    That's really unfortunate I guess. Buying scents directly from Montale is by far the best deal.

    And I don't see why they would remove the 20ml gift idea, unless there is a big change in how the company runs. Who knows I guess.

    Has anyone actually had contact with Montale lately? Made a phone call or email that a person actually answered? Seen some definite signs that they are still in business?

    I have been asking but no one seems to have a clue if they still exist or not.
