This scent is such a mess in my opinion. I can’t identify any notes in here whatsoever, this honestly smells like someone just mixed all of grandma’s stinkiest perfume and then repackaged it as this fragrance. Not for me.

Just eh...
I wanted to love this fragrance so much, since it has been on my wish list for a long time. I kept moving it forward and back, and finally decided to get it. I’m pretty disappointed. It is pretty strong, but doesn’t smell like anything in particular. I don’t really get fruit or flowers, spice or anything, just perfume. It’s kind of random. I’m bummed, but you can’t win them all.

This is a more feminine version of Starry nights. I absolutely love this scent. It lasts all day. The patchouli still stands out in this. It's kinda soapy and incense like at the same time.

Sometimes words just aren't enough!
I read an article that explained how to answer some of the questions posed should one decide to write a review, (https://www.escentral.com/blog/2017/05/03/how-to-desribe-fragrance/) I am a big fan of Elixirs. My personal fragrance until the other day was Clinique's Aromatic Elixir. Now, I am not the sort of individual who goes from bandwagon to bandwagon when my team isn't winning. As such, I believe Clinique will stay number one BUT Montale's Deep Purple will be sharing that coveted position...and really this is just my opinion. I read the above article and thought about some of the questions posed. What does Deep Purple represent in my world. This is what I came up with. Deep Purple is a top echelon fragrance. When I think about where and when I would wear this fragrance, I think of a $10M add campaign that Montale has hired me to develop for the launching of this new fragrance. This product is a confident, powerful, and self-assured fragrance. I wouldn't where it everyday as a work fragrance because it speaks to me of being better than every day product. However, if one plans on maintaining the level of performance I believe this fragrance is suited for than I welcome them to try. The product will cull its on clientele because one cannot help but be swept up in its radius and thus identified as being near...so if you are not performing at the level the CEO of the company expects, I would recommend a fragrance not as grand as Deep Purple. Upon entering the boardroom and walking to the lead spot, Deep Purple is powerful enough to travel with you and expand beyond you letting those all ready seated and those still mulling around, the experience of its scent. Deep Purple is a thick but welcoming fragrance. Montale is demonstrating this welcoming by creating an opportunity for many people to procure their own supply. When I am shopping for a new fragrance, packaging, color, and price are the trifecta a product needs to garner my attention. Montale has hit the ball out of the park. This product could be packaged in a paper bag and once someone experiences its fragrance, I don't believe what it is packaged in or the color of the box would even matter. Deep Purple's aroma, and incidentally the color of it's packaging, compel me to feel like I am wearing a regal or royal fragrance. The purple chosen for the packaging says to me that I am a member of a very special group but everybody is welcome. People notice its fragrance as you walk by them preparing to start your presentation. I entertain the notion that the people not invited to the presentation are screaming at the top of their lungs about needing to acquire their own bottles. The couple conducting the presentation and also wearing the fragrance and have an air of confidence that one literally can step into. The power of the fragrance transfers into it's subjects and speaking about the product is easy because there aren't many issues needing to be addressed during its launch. The room is heavy with the aroma but the fragrance is not overwhelming say like Clinique's Elixir. I like to wear my parfum heavy but with the Deep Purple you cannot put to much on. It reaches its own saturation point and mellows for an extended period of time. The boardroom is full of energy and anticipation because this fragrance is quite nearly perfect.People are hungry to start phase one and the financial department, most of the time comotosed by numbers are excited as well. I'm left to conclude that the fragrance has entered the ventilation shafts and the building is a buzz! That's my interpretation of Montale's Deep Purple.

So. Much. Rose.
This is my first experience with the house of Montale, famous for its oud and rose scents. I'll start by saying Dark Purple lives up to its reputation as a big, bold (bordering on loud) fragrance with beastly sillage and longevity. If you are looking for a huge, jammy, syrupy ultra-feminine rose that lets everyone know you've entered a room, this is your scent. I give it 5 stars for performing as billed. However, for me, this is a scrubber, as in, after about six hours, I had to scrub it off because the overpowering sweetness of the rose interfered with my ability to enjoy my dinner—it's that strong, ladies (and even after a good scrub, the scent lingered, although thankfully a bit more subtly). Although the notes are listed as rose, plum, patchouli, orange, geranium, amber, and teak, on me, this was a completely linear rose fragrance. I noticed none of the bright mandarin notes, the cooling geranium, or the dry, earthy woods or patchouli, which to my mind would have redeemed this scent. I am not averse to rose in the least; I enjoy JHAG Lady Vengeance and ADP Rosa Nobile for their multifaceted rose progression. This, on the other hand, had no nuance or pleasant surprises during any stage in the scent's development. One positive note about this overwhelming rose—there was none of the powdery dry-down effect of so many rose fragrances. If you are looking for a pure, feminine va-va-voom rose, you will love Dark Purple. If you are looking for something with more intrigue or excitement anchored by a voluptuous rose (which I expected), this will disappoint. I give it 10/10 sillage, 10/10 longevity, 2/10 originality/"wow" factor. I gave it 3 stars because it performs as promised (5 stars) but, for my tastes, it is simply too, too much (1 star).

My new signature sent
OMG!!! I just love this sent!!! I seem to gravitate towards fragrances with patchouli in them and they tend to last longer on me and this is one of the best!! It has an amazing flower and citrus plus spicy notes and I love them all mixted together. I think this is very sexy and intriguing sent. Would be great on a date night or for the special occasion but I plan on wearing it often, for me!!! My husband loves it too!!!

Overwhelming Alcohol Smell
I really wanted to like this... however, from the time you spray until the dry down it smells like alcohol and pesticide. It gave me a headache immediately. Hours later I was able to detect the underlying notes but they were still too loudly covered by the alcohol smell to tolerate. I cannot use this on my person as it is nauseating. I attempted to use it as a room spray but the overwhelming chemical smell is not even useful for that. I HIGHLY recommend the other fragrances in this line (try the vanilla!!) but will, unfortunately, get no more use of this after the initial attempts to salvage my purchase cost.

Plums and roses dripping with icicles. This has a non-sweet yet fruity smell that has a cool sharp edge to it. It took me a while to get used to it - but now I can’t stop sniffing myself! It’s a keeper for me. So different from the masses.

You have to LOVE roses and powder.
I picked this trying to find more sweet scents. It’s VERY flowery. All I smell is the roses even 20 mins in. Was hoping the plum would be noticeable at least. Absolutely not for me. I keep getting flower scents, have retaken the test many times. I’m not sure why since I love sugar, deserts, and fruits. Of my last year worth of fragrances I’ve only liked the juicy line. This gets recommended every time. Something should be done about that. I loathe florals. If you are looking for sweet, try again.

You do know that you can pick your own scents right? What I do is look up a purfume I have already tried and like. Example. If you like Juicy... Look up a Juicy fragrance. Click on people that also love that scent. Click on "reviewed" items. See what that person has to say about other scents. If you both enjoy juicy it's likely you'll enjoy other scents that person likes. I use this method and so far I haven't picked anything too awful.

I wasn't sure about this one, but decided to go out of my normal "scent box". It's starts out very strong. But once it sits it turns into this powdery, creamy, fluffy fragrance. It's very hard to describe but when I wear this I feel unstoppable, fearless, and sexy as hell. I highly recommend for women in their 30s and up, it's not a young scent at all. Also, I would say this is a perfect date night or night out scent and to be worn in the colder months. I do wear it to work but I laugh in the face of danger!

It's just beautiful! Down right BEAUTIFUL! It smells exactly like what purple would smell like if colors had smells. It lasts all day and lingers on clothes long after they've been worn and await washing. I wore this to work one day and had compliments all day. The next day, wearing a different fragrance, I could smell it on a jacket that was hanging on my chair. Never wore the jacket, never sprayed the jacket. But the scent was there, long after the fragrance of that day had worn off. I'm investing in a full size bottle of this. It's so worth it!!

Dark Purple
I love Montale, probably my favorite fragrance house to date, but I don’t love this fragrance. It’s not bad, but it does not stand out from the others. All the fragrances are very strong hitters. Even still, I usually mixed this with Grayland to add some dirty smoke. Although a unisex fragrance, it’s a leans more toward the feminine, rosy mature side. Some of these reviews overstate it’s strengh. This one seems lighter compared to other Montale fragrances. Could just be me. I won’t be buying this one, but I enjoyed wearing it.

too much of a good thing
This one is very nice, but be careful! It seems to get stronger as it dries so it is easy to over do it. A very heady fragrance, I could definitely pick out the plum. The patchouli is nicely snuggled in so you don't really notice it. This is perfect for an evening out.

I wanted to love it but I couldn’t even like it. This was very overwhelming to me, it was so strong at first that I had a hard time being in the same room where I had sprayed it. I gave it a second chance though because as I said I really wanted to love it. No luck, the dry down was still too much. I couldn’t tell what exactly I was smelling. It lasted forever though.

Houston, we have Roses
This is a beast, no doubt. It comes on like a roar and maintains that intensity. Ok, first thing I discovered was don’t treat this like any ordinary perfume or you will make yourself and everyone else ill. It’s monstrously powerful. Second wearing I was very careful to limit sprays to three. It’s deep and dark, almost-overripe plums floating in a bath of rose water. It’s beautiful and rather one-note—-roses. The plums disintegrate into a further explosion of deep, dark, dirty roses, sticking their tongues out at Alice and overwhelming any other notes. Used sparingly, this is beautiful and rich, but oh Lord, my scentbird sample will probably last a lifetime!

Death by a Thousand Roses
As with all reviews, YMMV. (Your Mileage May Vary) Things I (typically) like in fragrance: Personality Originality Presence Things I (almost always) dislike in fragrance: Airyness Indecisiveness Timidity For reference, I love both Mugler's Angel and Black Orchid by Tom Ford. I'm also a huge fan of Elixir des Merveilles by Hermès. I even like D&G The One. I've seen all of these referred to as loud. I can't disagree with that assessment. Dark Purple is not loud. It's deafening. It is the fragrance equivalent of throwing someone in a room and blasting music at them to get them to give up the name of the leader of their insurgency. It is a semi truck full of roses crashing into the Rose Parade. The name works, only because it is the color your forehead would be if you banged your head against a wall, trying to rid yourself entirely of your sense of smell. It is not nuanced. It had no development from first spray until dry down. I'm shocked that i had the willpower to make it that far. It is there, ever present, screeching like a spoiled toddler, unwilling to let you rest. It is the Twelve Days of Christmas sung by Rick Astley to the tune of It's a Small World inside a spinning tilt-a-whirl filled with gas station rose air freshener. But if you like roses, hey, go for it. Just don't say that no one ever tried to warn you.

This is a strong floral scent. I didn't smell plum, orange or patchouli. Not my cup of tea.

Funeral perfume?
This is heavy and dark like it is for a funeral. I think I will save it for such occasions.

Broody, Boozy, Dark and Fruity!
Dark Purple is jammy, plummy, deep rose bliss! This is a very plush, velvety rose layered over a rich, spiced plum liqueur or deep wine. It feels like I'm sinking into a large, lavishly upholstered chair and I don't want to get up. Dark Purple has a similar rose note to other Montale rose-centric scents so it might be redundant for me to buy a full bottle, but I sure want to!

Like it but not in love with it
Out of the 2 I received this month this is the better of the 2. It is sophisticated and yet powdery, which is the part I'm not digging. Love the note of Rose. Yet I do not get as many complements on this scent as I have with others.

Long lasting, rose patchouli but unfortunate miss
This lasted throughout the day and night, but the bad news is it just kept getting more annoying. The first smell is a strong rose patchouli incense. Seductive, strong. But it soon develops a overwhelming scent of dust.

Death
This scent reminds me of old castles, heavy velvet curtains and a scent so strong it could cover the scent of death. Ok, perhaps a little over dramatic. However, so is this scent. If you’re under 85 and 1/2, pass on it.

Hate it.
I have liked nearly every scent ive gotten until this one. Its strong and way to musky. Smells like it belongs on an old man! I didnt even give it away because i dont want to smell it on anyone else

This one is a winner for me. I love rose - and the rose in this is fantastic; offset by the patchouli. This is one I'll be purchasing!

Well....
I seriously think this perfume burnt my nose hairs! It. Is. Overbearing. What’s weird is that I love all the notes in this perfume. I don’t know what went wrong, but something certainly did. And it kind of smells like Raid.

It's A NO!
This fragrance is 'loud', not pretty. The strong rose scent is on the verge of giving me a migraine. This scent is not me at all.

It’s just OK...
Not sure about this one? I think it smells like you went outside and sniffed a rose bush. Not that roses smell bad, but I don’t want to wear a scent that smells like it.

Love my 1st Scentbird selection...
I normally find a fragrance I like and stay with it forever. My sister is totally different. She wears and tries new fragrances often and wanted me to try Scentbird. The Montale Dark Purple was my first fragrance to try. It only takes a little to last all day. Will definitely purchase this one.

Not what I was expecting
This is very sweet, fruity and flowery on me....rose is definitely what comes through the strongest with a fruity sweetness. I was expecting it to have a deeper, spicier scent.... I like it, I'm not in love with this like I am with Tom Ford's black orchid. It is very strong, last's all day I do like the dry down it smells really clean reminds me of fresh laundry. Unfortunately my husband hates it

Gorgeous perfume but not for me
I’ve been wanting to try a Montale scent for some time. My staple perfumes are Angel, Prada Candy and Swarovski. Which are kind of all over the place in terms of composition lol. This scent for me is beautifully complex but a little to heavy/ stuffy. It kind of reminds me of a creed scent in the way that it is strong and spicy but with a lingering alcohol scent.

Just the right amount of Musk, floral and citrus! I am VERY smell sensitive and this is a light pleasant scent that sticks with you all day! I ordered this scent two months in a row and plan to purchase a full sized bottle soon!

I get metallic roses the strongest. The orange is definitely there too. It's very sharp. I'm not the biggest fan. I'm really disappointed, because I really thought I would love it based on the scent notes.

Nope, Nope and NOPE!!!
I just can't do it!! Smells so much like Bug Repellant that I am repelled myself. I live in the south where Spring, Summer and Fall requires you to wear bug repellant, which I hate. This scent is just too overwhelming for me!! I can't even give it 1 star, Sorry!!!! **(The star I gave was not of my own accord but couldn't submit until I did.)**

Love this one.
I've got to say, this perfume smells exactly "purple." It reminds me of walking through a greenhouse full of roses at night. Just enough spice and woods to keep it from being too sweet, floral, or powdery. The top notes are astringent enough to catch attention, while the dry-down is a low, earthy, genuine rose. Definitely buying a full bottle of this one!

STRONG!!!!!
This is a very strong and sharp fragrance. I smell plum and patchouli first and foremost. It does calm down after a while (I'm talking an hour or so) but I'm just not used to a fragrance being so strong. I will try 3 of the others scents in the line so I can see if it was just this fragrance or if it's the whole line that is loud. If you love gourmand fragrances, you will be happy. If you love strong fragrances, you will be happy. It's just going to take a little getting used to for me. I'm used to wearing scents that don't last very long.

I love this scent
This scent smells like fresh linen and it’s a pretty strong at first but then it gradually fades out into a smell that just lingers around your clothes all day! I recommend for summer or on days you just want to feels fresh.
