3.5 out of 5
it wasn't what I thought it smelt. gave me a headache. will not buy again
Could smell the plum, patchouli, and rose very well! Everyone loved the way I smelled! I would definitely order a bottle!
I don’t know. I kinda have mixed feelings about this one. Smells a lot like the spices I use for my sweet potato pies! Granted it smells good but I don’t want to walk around smelling like spice!🤣
so bad. you know that smell you get when you mix bleach and dish soap together, that's this perfume. also, every person I let smell it hated it. idk what they were thinking when they made this one.
Pretty but overpowering
Strong floral notes - nice but not for me.
Strong & long lasting!
Didn't really like it 😕 But my mom loved it!
It made me think of an old lady perfume.
Just wasn't a pleasant smell.
It has a wonderful flower scent that isn't overwhelming. It's subtle. Great for most daytime occasions such as church or an afternoon meeting. Wouldn't recommend for fine dining or outdoor events.
a little goes a long way
i dont know
The scent was a little too strong and almost smelt like men's musk
So gorgeous and mysterious. I felt slinky wearing this lol secret lingerie
Very light smell
Nice but strong
Pretty scent. Stays on a long tmime.
it would be great if I was my grandmother 😄
it smells like soap....old-fashioned style soap. like the decorative stuff you might find at an antique shop.
bold, seductive, sexy. the hubby went wild.
All Time Favorite
I LOVE this perfume, it is definitely one of my all time favorites! I've wanted to buy this perfume forever but it's so expensive, like way more than the normal expensive perfume, so I was so happy and excited to see this as an option for scent bird!
Did not like
This fragrance has a strong synthetic opening.
This was my first montale perfume and I love it.
Not a scent I would wear.
didn't like the scent and way too overpowering yuck
It was nice.
I like it
I have gotten so many compliments with this scent! Its just what i thought it would be- perfect description!
Got many compliments on it
Love this scent!
I tend to love scents that could work for Summer or Winter and this is definitely one of those. This could easily be a scent I’ll probably always keep on hand.
Just takes a little
Very long lasting and strong smelling. It will not take much. An evening scent.
Although this selection was pleasing to my nose , I feel little floral scents —long lasting —- is more my type of smell .Either way , I appreciate the product !
I like this scent because it aligns with the scents I prefer but it has a unique smell of its own.. Has a dark essence with a popping plum and chaser of the patchouli.
Spicy, not my preference
I used to love a plum perfume but this was too strong for my chemistry
I really loved, hubby not so much.
I started Scentbird because it seems like most of the smells I gravitate to are roses and florals, but hubby says they smell “tangy”- whatever that means. I still enjoy wearing the other perfumes, but everyone wants their SO to love how they smell, so here I am trying different scents. Hubs said this one was “ok”. If I were going just for what I love, it would be a 5... but I’m here to find one that he loves, so I am rating it lower to get recommendations based on his preferences. I do LOVE this though!
Very sexy, luxurious scent!
Little too much on flowery side for me
But nice enough
Montale: Dark Purple
This by far has been my most favorite scent! Definitely will purchase the entire bottle. A little goes a long way. This head-turning fragrance whimsically danced on my skin for hours, complimenting each note of my body chemistry. Everywhere I went, people kept, mentioning about a wonderful scent and I would smile knowing the flattering secret of this sexy fragrance. It’s strong but not loud to draw attention to myself but politely graced the air around me, enticing the nostrils of those I walked by or encountered. I received many admirable remarks!! My special someone really enjoyed it too. I highly recommend for a mysterious and sexy lady.
One of my favorites
Received a sample of this years ago and loved it. Requested it now from Scentbird and it's just as I remembered. Very strong, so a little goes a long way, but I receive so many compliments on it. For mother's day I was gifted a sample box of all of this brand's fragrances, and they do not disappoint.
Strong wood and patchouli with a little fruity floral
From the description, I expected a fresher, fruitier composition, but at least on my skin, this is strong dark wood and patchouli, with a bit of musk and fruit and sweet florals. Maybe just a little spiciness, as well. I certainly don’t dislike it, but it wasn’t what I was looking for in a late spring fragrance. Good performance.
Dark Purple Like Plums
I’ve recently tried a Montale’s Dark Purple. It’s a feminine, fruity floral. It works if you’re really into fruit in a dark, mysterious kind of way. It just wasn’t me.
Doesn't smell like me
This smells nice. I was hoping it would be a deeper muskier version of their rose musk but it is a smell all of its own and all rose scents are drowned out. Over all not bad just not what I wanted.
Didn’t smell how I expected it to
Didn’t smell how I expected it to
Pretty but not for me
I love this!
Is long last and strong smell
to me the smell was over powering and didn't have the sweet notes it said it has
Smells like $$
Just as expected, love this scent. 😌
Surprising, in a good way
I'm not sure if this is unisex or more geared toward men, but I really like it. I've noticed that lately I prefer a clean, fresh, almost masculine fragrance over a sickly sweet women's perfume. This doesn't fit in the clean and fresh category but it definitely has the more masculine notes. It's bold and a little spicy, not something I would wear everyday, but when I want to make a statement, I'll dig this out and do it up!

Do not like this one
I was supposed to recieve chocolate greedy but was sent this one by mistake i decided to give it a try because i like montale perfumes very much...this scent overpowers everything and is crazy strong. If you like strong rose smelling perfumes this is for you however i do not like rose scented perfumes at all
Sexy spicy I love it
horrible, manly, too strong
Very different on me but great on my friend, it's pretty intense and strong but then nothing on me.
This did not smell good
A little to musky or woody but still nice
A little too strong for my liking, but my 16 year old loves it.
It is a very strong scent. Lasts very long and smells very highly of roses.
I have loved Montale so far. Dark Purple was just okay though. I’m still not sure if I’ll even wear it. I received mixed reviews from friends and family as well. It’s hard to pin what the scent is, it’s not bad it’s just a very particular smell that definitely isn’t for everyone.
Not a fan!
This was awful in my opinion. Not at all what I had expected or hoped for by researching the notes and reviews on it. It was overpoweringly floral and powdery on me, and I felt the immediate need to scrub it off.
Not a fitting smell for me.
I really like it
Montale has not let me down so far. Definitely one of my favorites. Great anytime of the day. A ton of compliments anytime I wear it
I couldn't GIVE this stuff away
This odor cannot be described. It's not fruity...musky...woody...or floral. It's strong and if descriptions count for anything I guess you could call it "dark". It smelled bad in the bottle, bad on me and I tried to give this to THREE different friends and all smelled it and declined with haste. I don't know who likes this or on whom this smells nice, but I'm guessing those people do exist or the perfume wouldn't. As for myself, it went into the Goodwill bag I'm afraid.

Elegant and sexy
This scent is long lasting elegance and seduction. Went clubbing and i smelled gorgeous all night. Washed my hair and scent is still traceable though. Is that a good or bad thing?
A little strong, but a great scent.
This fragrance is long lasting and has a clean smells, not to mention. Very Memorable. I love it
Didn't smell good.
55 to 64
I love this so much! It's a great Winter fragrance. It has great staying power, perfect for any occasion!
It was ok
A good 2nd choice
35 to 44
Too intense for my nose
Not the worst, but too strong for me. I like a perfume that lingers after I leave NOT one that announces your arrival.
The Rose Scent Takes Over!!!
I just can't like this no matter how hard I try. The rose takes over the other smells, and it is almost nauseating. I do not recommend this scent.
by far my favorite scent of all time- getting compliments on it daily!
Smells like old people and way too strong
Absolutely love it
This is a gorgeous scent if you enjoy darker fruit smells such as raspberry, plum, black cherry etc. It’s definitely a berry smell imo.
Deep and Rich yet sweet.
I wasn’t a huge fan of its smell. It reminded me of my grandmother’s perfume.
This product smells cheap and has a terrible overwhelming sent
I like this . Nice compliments on it and have qued this one twice Lasts nicely
I'm a fan of the Montale company, but had never had my own fragrance from them. I almost got whatever fragrance is in the pink bottle because my friend has it and I love it, but then I saw this one, still rose but with some berry and plum. Got the fragrance today and I'm OBSESSED. It's still very rose heavy on top. I only sprayed it on my clothing about half an hour ago, so it's not giving me much of a dry down yet. It is STRONG. It is sweet. It is floral. Montale doesn't disappoint with their rose fragrances, but maybe it's because I had an idea of what I was getting before it arrived. This will be my new daily fragrance.
I love this scent. One spritz is all you need, it's quite strong. It lasted for most of the day. Even after I stopped smelling it other people could still smell the perfume. It's warm with a sweet bite.
Stinks and manly
A strong floral that still manages to be pleasant. This is a scent that reminds me of older women and office parties, but not in a bad way. I guess that makes it a sophisticated scent.
Not what I was expecting
Smells absolutely wonderful.i love it
25 to 34
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.
To grandmother like
Not what I expected smells to manly or grandmotherly depending on the person
25 to 34
smells so good, a great fall scent
18 to 24
This did not last on me skin. Also the smell was awful
45 to 54
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.
35 to 44
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.
18 to 24
Dark and sexy
Not too musky the way some perfumes with heavier notes can be; sexy, not too sweet. I wear it in the evenings usually
35 to 44
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.

Did not Like
This scent it very very strong. It gave me a headache. I like my scent to last but I think this one could last for days. I will not be ordering this one again. I love the smell of roses but
I agree with you.
No others words needed loved it.
35 to 44
Just not for me
I didn’t care for this one. Just a personal preference
35 to 44
Loved this perfume, has a strong rose note but not overpowering. This scent does last, did not fade fast.
35 to 44
I love this scent! I only smell rose, even on the dry down. However, I love rose scents so I have no complaints.
45 to 54
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!!!
I too love it. It lasts and lasts even in the heat and humidity.
35 to 44
Smells like Off Spray
I did not like this perfume at all. It smells like Off Spray!! Very strong :(
45 to 54
Montale Dark Purple
I really liked this scent.. It was multi-layered, which I love in a perfume....and had staying power! A little goes a long way on this one. Could have the tendency to fill a room (be Too strong)! I PERSONALLY LOVED IT!
25 to 34
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.
Room Spray? Salvage costs you are crying over a 15$ charge? Get the fuck out of here...... grow the hell up.
Smells like an old lady!
This is the worst! I absolutely can't stand this one. It reminds me of something an old lady would have worn in the '80s.
And you smell like a whores cooter
