About this deal

The projection is insane - my brother was able to smell it in the next room, and maintained the same range for 5 hours which is more than I could ask for. A very strong and masculine fragrance, which is both sweet and oud-heavy, simply very oriental, you are noticed everywhere and the sillage leaves "traces", even after leaving a room you can perceive the perfume. I smelled this on my taxi driver in Rome — got in the cab and said oh my god it smells so good in here? and a few hours in it sort of mellows into a peppery and woody sort of mixture that is a slight deviation from BR540.

As someone else mentioned before, this perfume is suited to the outdoors more, due to monster projection potential. The rich and intoxicating blend of aromatic spices, velvety tonka bean, and smoky incense creates a captivating scent that lingers in the air. i panicked as i realized that i would have to wear this around people, but i decided to see how it played out.The top and heart notes are very strongly present and blend well whilst being easily picked out with each sniff. I tried this again with Instant Crush on my other wrist to compare the two and they're not as similar as I thought.

Addressing the various elephants in the room… yes, it’s a sweeter and even less “oudier” version of Oud For Greatness from Initio… and also yes, it’s yet another vanilla/musk fragrance… but even so, Arabians Tonka is a delicious parfum in its own right! In the first couple of hours the bright soapy rose is dominant, while the tonka completly takes over in the drydown. There’s no real oud note present though you have a woody almost Chypré vibe from the ambermax/musk synthetics they used to the DNA base of this fragrance.Shaped from the same iconic green Trudon crystal, the 350ml fluted bottle is adorned with a gold emblem. Like you, we enjoy experimenting constantly with new and varied scents because we are fragrance lovers.

Honestly, I'm ok with that, but if you're looking for an oud fragrance you might want to check elsewhere.

On the range of Pierre Montale's most popular scents rises the spirit of the oud, keeper of traditions at the gates to the east. It is hyper beast mode, last forever, you are in danger of suffocating those around you if you overspray, it's a beautifully made Tonka perfume. Sample Spray (Eau De Parfum) - The 3ml sample sprays are designed only for you to test the scent and not longevity or projection. C’est un parfum à porter pour des occasions spécial et en quantité modéré car il peut vite devenir entêtant et gêner les personnes autour de vous. The trail it leaves is incredibly noticeable, I can tell if someone’s wearing this even in open air!
