Montale, admittedly, is not known for subtlety- their bold perfumes wear their powerful Middle Eastern influences proudly, and as a result have become beloved of those craving fragrances of beastly projection and sillage. But that doesn’t mean the venerable Parisian house doesn’t do subtle from time to time, and the latest example- the warm, mysterious, Amber Musk- may be their best skin scent yet. Like a gentle caress, sweet, warm notes of amber glide tenderly above the skin, contrasting notes of clean powder against a soft, seductively musky current of animalic sensuality. It lingers on the skin for hours, leaving a trail of warm carnality in its wake, drawing those around you in ever closer. A true secret weapon if ever there was one, Amber Musk isn’t like your typically beastly Montale scent- and it’s all the sexier for it.
