To be enjoyed with caution
I went to a niche perfumery for advice.
I wanted a vanilla fragrance that had depth and wasn't just sweet. Sprayed on the test strip, I really liked Dark Vanilla. I liked this strong but not overpowering leather scent paired with the vanilla even better on my skin.

Because I had only just started to find my way into the world of fragrances, I was unsure about spending the money on it.

So I took my time and wanted to wait an hour and walk around the city. I kept smelling my skin and liking the scent.

Zack! less than 5 minutes later I was back in the perfumery and bought the fragrance. I just liked it too much.

The only big mistake was that I sprayed three sprays directly on my neck a week later. The sillage and longevity are simply above average. But that's how I first spoiled the fragrance for myself.

Conclusion:
With just a few sprays (1-2), the fragrance smells fantastic, mysterious and has depth. With more, it is absolutely too penetrating for me and the leather scent outweighs everything.

Luxurious, dark character
When you spray on the fragrance, you are greeted by a sweet and spicy vanilla. In the course of time, the fragrance develops more and more mysteriously, as the pleasant leather and the warm vanilla in combination can create such a character. The perfume has above-average longevity and leaves a very pleasant cloud of fragrance behind it. With this perfume, Montale shows how incredibly luxurious vanilla can smell. It is very special compared to many other perfumes.

Best perfume for the price range
The perfume is perfect for people who like the smell of vanilla. The longevity is incredible. The bottle looks a bit cheap and doesn't feel high quality. Not every other perfume has this scent and that makes it more attractive. Dark Vanilla is a unisex perfume. A vanilla scent in a perfume is sweet, warm and creamy. The vanilla note gives the fragrance a gourmand, almost delicious quality. It can evoke memories of delicious desserts and warmth.

Is it ?
After reading the reviews of Dark vanilla, I had the impression that this would be a very manly scent, but I personally think that this is unisex fragrance. It has a very sweet and creamy vanilla that a woman could wear but it also has some dark notes that is very suitable for a man. Vanilla and spice and everything nice, if you don't own this, I think you should consider. A very nice Montale!

Vanilla with power
When I smelled it I thought wow what a great vanilla. And this dark note next to it. Edgy for me, but still very balanced. Power to the max. 1 spray is already 1 spray too many.
But in terms of fragrance, it's a great piece. Dark vanilla can unfortunately not be used for every occasion, but if you use it you will definitely stay in the minds of others. This fragrance is a room filler. For me it is actually more masculine, but also wearable for women.

A beautiful woody, leathery vanilla scent. With slight animalic undertones. Very much comparable to Aoud Vanille from Mancera. Awesome.
