    Post Newest Montale - Aoud Heritage (Green Aluminum Bottle)

    Have any of our resident Middle Eastern Basenoters (Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain) seen or tried this yet? One of our Basenotes regulars (sorry can't remember his user name but he is an avid Philadelphia Eagles fan) was recently in Beirut, Lebanon in a mall, tried it and said it was very nice. In my later communication with retailers in the UAE, they told me that it hadn't launched yet there but it was coming soon, so I was curious if anyone else stumbled upon it.

    Do you know if this is a Durrani Montale or an Ahmet Montale product? Is it one of the supposed Middle East exclusives like Aoud and Pine, Kabul Aoud, etc.?

    I ask because different shops here seem to be split between the two factions, with some shops carrying the Paris based ones and other shops carrying the UAE based ones.

    I haven't seen this around, but I haven't been looking closely. I'll see what I can find out on my next shopping trip this week.

    It was The Paris Gallery in Dubai that told me they were expecting it soon. I remember now that the Basenoter who tried this at the ABC Dbayeh Mall in Beirut, Lebanon is tdwctdwc. On December 6th in the SOTD, he said he smelled it and it was "fruity." Hopefully he will chime in if he reads this and share what more he can recall. Not sure if this a Durrani or Atmeh Montale. My guess is the latter as Aoud Legacy and Mr. Aoud are also carried by the Paris Gallery and a friend brought those two back for me recently. Therefore, most likely a Middle East exclusive. Thanks Noggs for looking into this. Also, hedonist and Yuyu if you happen to see this, perhaps you can also find out something in your respective locales. It would be greatly appreciated.

    Regarding the split faction(s) of Montale... is there a preferred side, in regards to say.. quality?

    Well I now have a total of 97 Montales from both factions and I personally don't notice any depreciation of quality from either side and thus no preference on my part. This has been only my personal experience with Montale.

    Very very tough to decide for me. In no particular order:

    Aoud & Pine
    Oud Pur Oriental
    Black Aoud
    Kabul Aoud
    Aoud Meloki (Full Incense close behind)

    Thank you, Hednic!

    I have not tried many of the Montales. I didn't like Dark Aoud - too harsh and medicinal. And Red Aoud was too much gourmand for me.

    I'll try the five you recommend, plus Full Incense. Taking into account what I wrote about the oud and gourmand, any other you can recommend? Thanks.

    Hednic, i tried it twice already and it's on my buy list. Stop teasing me about it because i wanna buy it so bad but trying to buckle up the wallet this month

    I think it's from this Montale, just like Aoud Legacy is : http://montale-international.com

    It smells green fresh, a little fruity, some cedar and some lovely incense(fresh, not burning incense ). It's really really nice and very long lasting.

    The closest thing that smells like it is : Solo Loewe Platinum

    I figured it was from that company you cited. The perfume links on their home page don't work for me so unfortunately I can't see what they currently offer. Thanks for chiming in.

    Nothing works on that website. I emailed them telling them about it , so i can at least see the note description of their new releases. No reply. That was 2 months ago .

    I really wish some of these middle east exclusives were more readily available here in the US. Black Aoud is one of my favorite scents and love most of the ouds from Montale. Would be nice to be able to purchase some of the exclusives.
