    I like the sound of the last three, if they’re properly foody. But this appears to be an extension of or at least in some way related to the Montale line (there’s a Mancera scent called Roses Greedy, which ought to be a clue), and my experience with Montale is mixed, to say the least — I’ve only ever loved one Montale, Attar, but not enough to buy it. That makes me think that the oud Manceras are not going to be very good.

      It’s assumed they’re related in some way. If they’re not, they’re a pretty direct copy.

    These came out 2 years ago……why is this news?

    These perfume names make them sound like they we’re made for “exotic” dancers.
