Definitely in my top favorites
It my not be my number one favorite but it's pretty close second. The smell of wood but you got the sweet spice smell with it just makes it perfect. If you haven't tried I highly recommend it.

Sultry and a double winner.
I got this for my husband...however...It smells so alluring. Like a romantic night in a cabin, in front of a nice fire, sipping some bourbon or a sweet wine. It's a perfect blend of woody and spicy. Gave me a flash to my Uncle's den...of fireplace, hard wood walls and floors, leather bar chairs, high end cigars and single barrel bourbon. One of my holiday grabs this year...that is flattering on my husband and I both..😀

Give it a chance
At first I was skeptical because I read the reviews after I bought it and most of them said it’s a masculine scent. When you first spray it it does have that powdery Axe male body spray but within 15-20 mins the sugary vanilla sets in. It stays on you forever! Spray on your clothes and between your breasts and wrist. Amazing warm sugar and spice. I love it

I am a girl and chose this without realizing its a male scent smh. Needless to say, I DON'T CARE. It smells incredible and I always get complimented on how good I smell when I wear it. It isn't too masculine. It smells very rustic and woodsy. I totally recommend​ this to ANYONE.

I don't think so...
Got this for my guy but there is something in it I'm not a fan of. Maybe the ebony or Agarwood? (Oud) as that's a smell I'm unfamiliar with? Would not get this again. My guy likes it OK, and I got it for him, but for a spicy woody blend that knocks your socks off, and is a unisex scent to boot (although I feel it leans slightly masculine) try Oddity by Rag & Bone instead. Loved it on myself and gave it 5 stars. This doesn't compare.

Great base notes
I bought it only because I like the base notes of this fragrance. It smells just plain green or some leaves in its initial notes. Not unpleasant, just not very interesting. I only like the sweet fragrance left on your skin and clothes after about 2 hours after spraying. It reminds me of Indian incense.

Swing and a miss
After trying Greyland and loving it, I figured this would be another woodsy cologne that I would enjoy. There are no woods or spice to this. This is borderline perfume. It’s very feminine. I’ll probably give this months sample to my daughter. Don’t get me wrong, it’s smells good, just not something I’m into.

Good, but too powdery
It's a pretty great smell! It's not very strong, however, so I felt like I had to apply it a couple of times throughout the day. It was WAY more powdery on the front end than I expected, but seemed to balance out alright as the scent dissipated a bit.

I really enjoyed this cologne, although it’s strength just didn’t hold out. For the first 60 seconds it’s a bit over powering but dries out very nicely but within an hour you need more unless you in a very intimate situation to notice the scent. Would be great on oily skin types. I’m like the Sahara desert.

Love the deep resinous vibe from this. Kind of like pitch from a cedar tree. Last a good amount of time. The projection lasts about 2 hours, upon which I get a good amount of compliments, and then sits close to the skin. Recommend for dressing to impress and not so much for daily mundane shit. Not a gym type frag.

Not for me
I’m writing the same review basically for 2 different colognes I recently tried, because when it comes to it, i felt the same way. I don’t claim to be a connoisseur of cologne, but I know what I like and what works for me typically once I’ve smelled it on my body. This is not one that works for me. I will say I can see how some may like it, but be warned it is a strong cologne. It will last all day long, which if it works well for you great... If not it can be an annoyance throughout your day.

Best Scent I've Ever Used !!!
it is surprisingly sweet and alluringly spicy, all at the same time. like others have said, the initial scent is pungent (votive candle pungent) and very quickly mellows out while staying pleasantly fragrant. it has an eastern musk (from agarwood) that is not common, making this a "Grown Man" fragrance if there ever was one.

A friend of mine also has scentbird and showed me this scent. I enjoyed the smell of it and so did my GF. It is strong but not overwhelming and the scent is exactly as the name would imply.

Weirdly sweet and spicy
First 5 minute this scent is very rough, very bitter and sourly pungent, after about 20-30 minutes the smell relaxes to something tolerable but still just an odd scent. This smell doesn't go well with an fabric softener or dryer sheets and makes for a terrible scent if there is a cross smell.

Montale is Spicy & woodsy. It does go on strong at first but it turns into a lovely light scent. You only have to spray it once. You can smell the Sandalwood and incense. The incense is the what you smell first and then it too lightens up. I. Love. This. Fragrance. If you like a spicy sandalwood smell then you too will enjoy it.

I figured this would be a great scent since I’ve had a sample of another cologne that was perfect for me. Unfortunately, after the first spray, I immediately had a strong sour smell hit my nose. Other people didn’t smell it, but I sure did. It would dissipate after an hour or so, but made me not want to use that cologne again... I’m really disappointed since I do like the company.

My friend got this scent from here and when i first smelled it i loved it. It had a sweet woody sensual type of frag. So i picked this one as my next scent and now that i own it i don't really like it anymore. Its not as masculine as i remember it smells very floral and powdery to me now which is what i hate in a man's fragrance. And yes this scent is extremely strong and lasts a good amount of time but its not for me anymore. Overall I'm giving it a 6/10 and that's just cause it lasts a long time

I'm sorry kids...but THIS cologne is made especially for when PINOCCHIO goes on a job interview.... The name says it all...but I should add that if they weren't calling it 'WOOD AND SPICES' , it could easily go by 'WEST WING OF IKEA" Normally, I'm not harsh on fragrances, but as promising as this one SEEMS... it sorely has LET ME DOWN! --- stay clear of this one, unless you want a trail of beavers following you home.

Fourth and Seventh scents (Oops). I accidentally ordered this one twice. I like Earthy smells so the name seemed perfect which is why I ordered it both times. Clearly I didn't like it that much to forget I had I already ordered it. It's VERY sweet and way more spicy than woodsy to me. It's more effeminate than masculine. It's also on the heavier side of light/heavy. I've never really smelled something like it before in colognes. It smells more like an air freshener or cleaning supply. Not my thing.

I was comparing this to Creed's Spice & Wood and this one is no where near as good. Too spicy at first. Smell gets better as it evolves.

Not my favorite by far. Wanted my boyfriend to try it and it was to spicy.

I was looking for a scent similar to Cade. This was not it to spicy and burned my nose everytime my boyfriend wore it.

This was my first Montale cologne I have tried and I like it but don't love it. It reminds me of a very high quality air freshener. My Fiancé LOVES it though and says it is her favorite. She keeps stealing it to spray on our bed...

I'm not sure why this is considered "men's"? Ive never experienced a cologne that smells more like perfume. And, I understand that some scents are unisexual (my favorite cologne is Black Orchid by Tom Ford). This "cologne" was pretty terrible.
