  • Diane: I can’t wait to try more of these! I’ve only tried 2 from the Aoud series (Oud Black and Oud Queen Rose) and they fascinated me with their woodsy complexity–a bit sharp, a bit bitter, but strong and earthy. Definitely not everyone’s cup of tea, but they are interesting. August 10, 2005 at 11:51pm Reply

  • Victoria: It is certainly very exciting! I like Montale fragrances I sampled (with few exceptions), therefore easier access to them is always welcome.

  • Campaspe: Awesome! I liked a lot of these. I wonder what the price points will be like? August 11, 2005 at 9:11am Reply

  • Diane: Price points are not good, so I hope I don’t fall mad for anything, although falling mad is always a euphoric delight, so bottom line: catch-22. Aouds are $210 per 3.4 oz and the others are $135 per 3.4 oz. Why in the heck don’t they come in smaller sizes? August 11, 2005 at 7:34pm Reply

  • Victoria: The prices are on the higher end, but it is because they carry only the large sizes. 50ml size in Paris was rather reasonably priced, as I recall. August 11, 2005 at 10:03pm Reply

  • Atreau: Of the Montales I’ve tried, i’ve really oved them but those prices are so high – perhaps if I find a fragrance I really need! August 11, 2005 at 11:18pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: They are on the high side, yes. Perhaps I will just wait till I get to Paris to buy a small bottle. On the other hand, Aoud Roses Petale is worth the price for me! 🙂 August 12, 2005 at 12:30am Reply
