    Default New Montale; Black Aoud Intense!

    As seen on Montale Paris website: intense Black Aoud. Any one heard of it? Seems to be a layering scent? To combine with other Montale's.


    Great scents, great feelings

    I spoke with a guy who sampled this at Pitti. It seems almost identical to normal BA and not as strong as the name would suggest.

    Not a good thing!
    The So Iris Intense wasn't Intense at all!
    And Intense Cherry isn't Intense also!
    What is happening here?

    Tell your mother she's welcome! I will be sending my business assistant soon to stop by the Montale boutique to check out availability! I have listed them separately on the General Fragrance and Womens Forums.

    I haven't actually smelled the new bottles, as I still have my older one (so I didn't know that it was ever watered down). Was about to say that the original has/had nuclear sillage and 24 hour+ longevity...I wouldn't be able to imagine an intense version of that.

    A lot of people felt that way, but I never experienced that personally. I only own the original.

    I have a bottle of Black Aoud from 2016 and have never had an issue with it being watered down. The stuff is still potent. It also smelled exactly like my sample I got years ago. I don't think I have a need for an intense version, but those Mancera bottles look nice. I'm interested in smelling them.
