Amandes Orientales
This fragrance opens with an light almond accord. This is not Louve's bitter almond (liqueur), it is sweet and milky with only a touch of the bitter almond's typical sharpness (at the base) to keep the accord interesting. This is needed, because the scent smells so clean and musky like it was a body lotion. As the notes bloom on my skin, the almond accord develops into a sugared milk accord with a dash of vanilla. Pleasant and much easier to wear than the piercing Louve, this Montale it will be definitely a disappointment to true almond lovers. Despite its lightness, this scent has great sillage and tenacity.

Addictive Bitter Almond Musk
Not all almond perfumes smell like Dior HYPNOTIC POISON, and Montale AMANDES ORIENTALES is a case in point. Bitter almonds and musk are really the keys to this utterly addictive perfume. It opens like an unsweetened loukhoum--as oxymoronic as that may sound--with the same alkaline powder quality but instead of sugar there is an almost greenish aura surrounding the almonds. In some ways, it's like the outer dark coating of roasted almonds--not the inside yellowish fatty part, but the edges of the almonds, as though they have been peeled and only the shavings appear here.

The musk is very strong and seductive indeed, and eventually the composition dries down to become more sweet and less bitter, soft and smooth. It's like starting off an evening in a heated argument over some controversial political topic and then waking up the next morning in bed under soft down comforters.
