Musky
Reminded me of a smoke shop or an old trunk. Good cologne last most the day with a couple sprays.

Uplifting
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.

Great scent!
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. The wood and spice scents work together to form a scent that I would almost describe as a musk. Give it a try!

Montale
Liked the smell used it today for the first time sprayed twice and notice nothing else was coming out of the bottle so i took the little sleeves that were covering the actual bottle and the whole thing was empty literally two spray and gone my guess is the bottle must have cracked slightly when shipped or it leaked out but so far been wit u guys for about a year and never had something like this happen so ur still keeping this customer keep sending those great colognes 👌🏽

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.

Lovely & Spicey
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.

Clean and fresh
Really liked this smell. Could be unisex, but a little on the masculine side. It does smell like its description, that’s for sure. If it lasted longer I would’ve given it 5 Stars.

Not for me
I was pretty disappointed in this scent. It's much stronger than I would like, and it wasn't very masculine in my opinion. Once I wore it for about 30 minutes, I had to change my shirt. I put the bottle away in a drawer, and there it will stay. It does last a very long time, so there's a bit of a plus.

WOW.
This has to be, by far, the best smelling cologne I have ever used in my life to this day. Not overpowering, long lasting, pleasant to smell, and people instantly compliment you. Perfect blend of scents for a clean, crisp, manly, and elegant scent! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Alright
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.

One of my all time favorites. It lasts all day, it's not so strong you get a headache from it and can't wear it ever again, and it's very unique. I personally don't like the really strong scents or ones that all smell the same so this one was great for me and my wife loves it.

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.

Honestly this cologne reminded me of an insect repellent or air freshener, was extremely strong and more feminine then masculine was very disappointed and the Mrs. agrees she actually told me that it smells like “old lady” to be her words exactly

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.

This was my first "miss" with Scentbird. The scent gave me a headache and would be one that I would steer clear of. However, a friend tried it on and loved it. It did smell much better on him, so we gave it to him to enjoy.

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.
