    Question Calling all Montale lovers!!

    Hey guys,

    I'm just about the pull the trigger and order a 100ml bottle of Montale Black Aoud from the Montale website but which 20ml fragrance should I get alongside it based on my wardrobe?

    As a guide, im more of a gourmand lover with my favourite fragrances being DHI, Pure Havane, Tobacco Vanille and also Aventus.

    Any help and explanations of a choice would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks in advance!

    Agree. Have 73 large Montales in my collection and out of all of them Sweet Oriental Dream is probably the most "Gourmandy".

    Heck, you have two more Montales than I have in my whole perfume collection. Got some catching up to do.

    How about an amber scent?
    Blue Amber
    Patchoul

    It won't fulfil your gourmand kick, but Cuir d'Arabie is my favourite of all the Montales. I've got a 50mL of BA, 50mL of Cd'A and a 20mL of Black Musk (and have tried a few others) and Cd'A's unwavering leathery opulence is a real winner in my book.

    It has the brashness of a nouveau-riche gent with the scent of an old money mens club.
    Throw an internet billionaire into White's of London and bottle the scent.

    I'd skip gourmands (there are better options from other houses) and get mini of Dark Aoud - dry, masculine, woody goodness which is different than anything that you own.
    TOP 5 hot weather:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Creed Aventus
    3. Creed Millesime Imperial
    4. Lalique Encre Noire
    5. Azzaro Chrome Sport

    TOP 5 cold weather:

    1. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    2. Chanel Coromandel
    3. Dior Homme Intense
    4. Dior Homme
    5. Byredo 1996

    73 large bottles! That will take you an eternity to go thru! Any interest in swapping a sample/decant/bottle?

    That's exactly what I would do. Dark Aoud is excellent.
