    Any European Basenoters try this one yet? Thoughts positive and/or negative

    Sure blind buy for me.

    Looks like one of those you'd love to smell just because of the name.....and the listed notes don't hurt, either.

    Yow, I do like the look of that...

    Anxious to hear about this when someone gets a nose on it.
    Between Covid and retirement I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    I'd be open trying this one, like the notes breakdown.

    Sounds soooo promising - but as always with Montale, it will be wait and see: so often their listed notes don't match what you're actually smelling.
    At worst, one is in motion; and at best,
    Reaching no absolute, in which to rest,
    One is always nearer by not keeping still.

    I saw this on Instagram yesterday, looking forward to buying it ASAP.

    Kinda nice that they have also focussed on a single release as well.

    I have worn it for sure, but it's quite a while since I last did.

    I wonder if it will smell like Mancera's Aoud Vanille, which is great IMHO
    "I exist for myself, and for those to whom my unquenchable thirst for freedom gives everything, but also for everyone, since insofar as I am able to love - I love everyone. Of noble hearts, I am the noblest - and the most generous of those that yearn to give love in return. - I am a human being, I love death and I love life."

    Wonder how close this will be to Axe/Lynx Oud Wood & Dark Vanilla. Ł5 versus, oh, maybe 20 times that? And the Lynx juice is pretty good stuff. Can’t wait to read comparisons.

    Received mine yesterday. Doesn't have any similarities to PDM Layton - at least not to me.

    Patiently waiting for some samples/decants to pop up on eBay. Not a huge fan of Montale, but Dark Vanilla looks promising.

    Oh it's there, just not as much in your face with some of their other releases.

    I know they are completely different fragrances, but do you like this one more than Oud Tobacco from a house standpoint? And from 1-10 how high does it score to you? Thanks Hednic!

    I enjoy it just a tad better than Oud Tobacco and it rates a 8.5 for me.
