It’s not a heavy leather scent. The normal Montabaco is very smooth and quite light. This is that with added grapefruit opening for a more warm weather vibe. It’s brilliant. Montabaco is one of my favourite scents and the fresher notes make it better in my opinion especially for summer. PM me if you don’t get on with it Laughing out loud

Edit: Just to add the opening is pretty sharp and I was a bit nervous at first but let it get in to it for 30 mins or so and then the magic happens Cool

Who are they using to ship it please 74? I can’t remember who it was the last time I ordered from OJ.

No idea mate they charged £7 for it though so it better be quick Laughing out loud
Just had a read up on them all and I'd probably prefer the standard Montabaco but that is expensive!

Actually the extreme isn't that bad have you tried that?

No I’ve tried/had the parfum and intensivo versions. They will all smell the same, but I think the extreme is 50% (or more?) concentration which would probably last for days.

Montabaco Intensivo which I’ve had and also have Nawab of Oud in is 42%. And I have Ambre Royal, Black Gold and Zizan in parfum versions(I think around 30%) which are all still very lasting.

What I’ve read is the higher the concentration, the less projection of the fragrance, but it lasts longer on the skin which makes sense as the oil content is higher.

Ormonde Jayne let you pick what concentrations you want with their fragrances with their bespoke service.

It’s parfum I think without checking the bottle. Lasts all day on me it’s great. I always spray clothes and hair as well as skin to make sure I can smell it all day.

What was the start price for Tygar mate? They recently went up from £225 to £255. It’s proper class but £255 is pushing it. I paid £208 which I was still pretty pissed off about.

I'm all about the citrus vibe on it, reminds of Neroli Forte but lasts ages, my Mrs likes it so much she's going to keep it so I'm going to have to order another bottle.

Start was 255 LFC

Just took a blind punt in the Verano, LFC. Also the Simeone Andreoli Malibu.

Managed to get an opened bottle of Tygar on eBay for 100 quid so I can justify getting the extra bottles. Just nowhere to wear them lol

You’ll like Verano for sure.

Malibu is one of the best smelling and performing summer scents available, great buy

Opened my 3rd bottle of this yesterday. If anyone likes Virgin Island Water but gets shite performance like me, then this is your answer.

^ The Eden version seems to have good performance as well. Unsure how similar it is to the original though.
