    It's a nice oriental with a punch of cinnamon, vanilla and oud. Not too sweet IMO. Excellent performance on my skin.

    It's really good. hednic described it well. I'll also add that the honey note is on the darker, thicker side as opposed to something light and airy like Cartier L'Envol. A nice dark, golden, spicy honey.

    This occasionally is sold on Fragrancenet for about $70 for a large bottle, which is a great deal. I'd hang around there for a while to see when it comes in and then snatch it up.

    How is it on longevity and sillage? Does it get you noticed?

    It does, believe me. I have a sample and could still smell it next morning. I read those things often here, but this time I expierenced it myself. Go light on the trigger with this Montale.

    You're not going to have any issues with longevity that's for sure. Will you like the smell? That's something only you can know, for me it's not that great the first 5 minutes but as it settles it gets better and better, strictly a cold weather scent for me and definitely not one I'd spray as liberally as I do with most fragrances

    Bought it blind, based on previous BN raves. Yes, it can be found at great prices online. One of my favorite Montales. Very nice honey effects. Nuclear strength, of course. Thank you, Basenoters, for another solid recommendation.

    One of my favorite Montales as well. Bought it blind also, based on a BN recommendation. The cinnamon and vanilla notes are well suited for cool weather wear. I get 10+ hrs, from moderate 2 sprays. This is one that has plenty of sillage and a little cinnamon can go a long way IMO, so I am always cautious with anything from Montale.

    That's an excellent deal. Incredible. Now's the time to get it if you've been considering it.

    That's probably the lowest I have ever seen it at.

    It's OK, better than Dark Aoud. Nothing to write home about

    If it's better than Dark Aoud then it should be pretty good then.

    Thinking about a blind buy! It's a Montale, can't go wrong with Montale!
    Life is too short to sample. Buy Blind | I am generally not interested in batch hunting or weak fragrances.

    Top 10 in no particular order:

    Amouage - Epic Man
    Montale - Black Aoud
    Montale - Aoud Lime
    Boucheron - Jaipur pour homme edp
    Hermes - Terre d'Hermes pure parfum
    Thierry Mugler - A Men Pure Malt
    Dior - Sauvage edt
    Rochas - Lui
    Davidoff - Cool Water
    Mancera - Cedrat Boise

    Be sure to write home about it after you try it.

    I find this quite pleasant. Own a bottle (blind buy) and I'm satisfied. Nothing ground breaking or jaw dropping, but it's great for the $60-70 it can be found for.

    The Floris is really nice too. They're both very different. Montale's is thicker, spicier, more of a syrupy dark golden. Floris is more floral, aromatic and a lighter, more delicate golden color. They compliment each other well.
