Not Love at First Spray
It was too strong, very intense and borderline nauseating when I first sprayed it on! I had to cover my nose for a few minutes until the intensity calmed down! Later, the smell was fantastic, slightly musky and floral. This one snuck up on me as my first impression was negative, then love!

I freaking LOVE THIS FRAGRANCE!!
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.

Disappointed
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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Dusty Rose
You've read a million reviews that say a perfume smells like a grandmother. Well I'm here to tell you that this "perfume" smells like my grandmother's bathroom. Yes, her bathroom. The only "note" I get from this is old, dusty, rose soap that's been sitting around since the 50's. I love all of the other notes mentioned in the description and in others' reviews, but I can't detect a single one of them. This is the first time I've felt like I just threw $15 away.

1st of all purple is my favorite color. When I sprayed the perfume it was a very sultry and fruity mix. I love it! Very unique in my opinion and will be worn on cold & rainy days.

Unique
Very unique smell and not for everyone. I like it, because it's unlike anything I've ever smelled. It's musky, it's fruity, it's strong, slightly overpowering and lingers around for a long time. Would recommend if you want something different.

I quite like this fragrance, but I could see how its not for everyone. It is a very strong fragrance, not for daily wear or for work at an office. 1-2 sprays will last you all day. If you like roses ,woody notes, and strong scents than give this fragrance a try.

I absolutely LOVED this fragrance! It was very very intense so its definitely not for everyday wear however it is definitely one that someone will notice. I don't think i have ever had a perfume before that you could follow the change of scent through the dry down as much as this one. I was super impressed, cant wait to try more from this brand.

This is a strong scent that lasts all day. I like a sultry scent so this works well for me. This scent is not for everyone & I think it's a little too heavy for warmer weather. The scent that lingers for me is the patchouli & rose. Normally not a fan of rose but mixed with the patchouli & musk makes a great scent for a mature, confident woman.

This one opens with a blast of red currant berry and amber, then it fades to a nice plumy-jasmine, still with a strong amber note. Once it finally dries down on my skin, all I get is a strong rose and red currant. Its nice, but I think I would've liked it better as a candle. Its biggest down fall is the sharp chemical smell that you get with the rose and amber, especially when it's still wet on the skin. Unfortunately, that sharp smell usually means too many cheap synthetic fragrance oils were used, and weren't balanced out with enough real ingredients.

This is a very strong scent! Normally i like strong scents, but this one stinks. It is very harsh. Almost has a burnt smell to it. I sprayed it twice on one wrist & that was hours ago, i can still smell it very strongly. After the burnt smell dies down there is almost a baby powder or light flower smell. So glad i was able to test it first!

This is a really strong perfume, can really smell the fruit at the beginning. To me, (I'm 30 years old) has a more mature smell to it, reminds me of a posh older lady. I also don't care for the base smell that lingers on my skin, it makes me smell like a black walnut tree. I will say that it does last a long time, it's just not for me.

I got a sample of this in my Birchbox a long time ago and I remember absolutely loving it but...I could not stand it this time around. It was so strong it gave me a headache (and I’m not particularly scent-sensitive) and it was a bad strong, almost alcohol-y, I could tell it had some really nice undertones but they never came through. Hopefully next month will be better!

I was pretty hesitant to try this scent after reading reviews about how strong it is but went ahead with it because it's called Dark Purple. I wish I could say I loved it. The issue specifically with me is, I cannot smell it! My brain cannot pick up these notes and I'm pretty letdown over that because everyone (men and women) compliment me all the time on how good it smells. I just wish I could experience it for myself! I'm giving this a 4 because everyone else seems to love it.

Either this perfume was adversely affected by shipping in hot weather or it smells nothing at all like the notes described. Very cheap floral "Avon-like" were overwhelming and it dried down to a vaguely fruity body wash smell. Also tested it on paper and pretty much came up with the same thing.

I really wanted to like it, because I love musk and patchouli. Something about it is smells smokey to me. It is also quite strong, so I would not consider this office appropriate or something for a first date. I liked the tiny hint of floral to it. The scent definitely matches the bottle and does remind me of the color purple!

I chose Montale Dark Purple as my first scentbird fragrance. I found the fragrance to be a dark berry vampy type scent. The fragrance seemed a bit strong at first spray but as it layed on my skin for bit I loved it. I loved the fact that I could smell it throughout my day. I am glad I chose this fragrance and will give this one another try. If you love Tom Ford's Black Orchid or Tom Ford's Velvet Orchid then give this one a try. I think you can't go wrong with this fragrance, but that's just my opinion.

Dark Purple is very deep, alluring and sensual. It beckons to your senses and causes you to inhale deeply as it wears throughout the day. For me, it wears really well, and it lasts throughout the day. Also, it is strong initially, however, not so strong that it could induce headaches or become overbearing. I definitely recommend this amazing scent to anyone considering themselves "Grown & Sexy"

It's unique and smells expensive to me. It reminds me a lot of Narsico Rodriguez's For Her (black bottle/pink box). It's spicy and sexy, it's a date night perfume. I love strong scents and this didn't disappoint! This is the 1st Montale perfume that I've tried and I can't wait to order some more!

Wow, this perfume is absolutely amazing, very floral and clean and perfect if you enjoy a perfume that actually gets florals right. The musk is so subtle that it doesn't interfere with the florals it actually compliments it. This is the 2nd perfume from Montale that I'm in love with a will buy ("roses musk" is also amazing)

I had to verify this is a scent for women; it has a masculine edge to it - which in the description they do mention. I smell more geranium than plums, and it is spicier than I anticipated. When I think of "purple" I think of a lively color with a punch of freshness and fruitiness. This scent isn't "fresh and fruity," in my opinion, but it is "sultry and deep." While it is not my usual type of scent, I'm glad I can try something different. It's unique and mysterious - a great combination - and a scent I would wear to go somewhere or do something different.
