    Vanilla Exstasy, Boise Vanille and Vanille Absolue are all nice IMO.

    I guess you already own the best non-aoud fragrances from the line... except Amandes Orientales. It doesn't get much love here but if Sweet Oriental Dream is your liking you should check this one out too.

    But have you at least tried a lot of the other non-oud Montales?

    Just wondering, hednic - how does the Vanilla Exstasy differ from other vanillas. I've heard it's an "ultimate" for some lovers of that note - what would you say makes it a standout?

    My votes for Montale non-aouds are:

    Jasmin Full
    Patchouli Leaves
    Musk to Musk

    What i like about this one is how the vanilla blends with the apricot note which gives it a bit of a different character than other vanillas. Also I don't find it as floral as some other people do or as feminine as others do. It's sweet but for me not overly.

    Yes it's sweet but it has a harsh vibe too. I love it.

    I'm a big amber fan and I love Montale, but I think other houses handle the note better. I didn't like Amber & Spices.

    I own this and think it's quite nice. Judge for yourself if you have the ability to try it.

    I was able to sample Starry Night.
    For me it's too floral.
    How does Golden Sand differ from Starry Night!
    Thanks!

    Golden Sand might be too floral for you also. It's mintier and spicier but sweet and not as powdery as Starry Night.
