Fragrance description Montale Aoud Blossom
Montale Aoud Blossom is a rich Oriental floral fragrance for men and women with distinctive notes of rare oud wood. It is part of the first French perfume line dedicated to this rare ingredient with its resinous aroma. This line has been brought to the world by the Montale brand, which is characterised by its love of fragrances from the Orient and Arabia and its interest in their enchanting history. As with all the fragrances from the Montale brand, the greatly admired, yet somewhat enigmatic Pierre Montale has given the Aoud Blossom Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve.
The Aoud Blossom Eau de Parfum plays with the fragrant theme of oud wood, which is known under many names. The wood of the Aquilaria tree, known as eagle wood, agarwood, oud, aoud or (in Arabic) oudh, is a fascinating material with a resinous aroma and the most expensive wood in the world, and it has been used for centuries to make incense and (in particular Arabian) perfumes. This regal ingredient, also known as “liquid gold” or “the wood of the gods”, complements the multiple diverse floral tones invigorated with citrus in the composition of Montale Aoud Blossom in an original way.
Pierre Montale has created a perfume which masterfully combines a rich palette of fragrant tones into a generally intoxicating, romantic and exotic composition, as if the time he spent in Saudi Arabia had imbued the brand’s founder and the creator of all the perfumes in its portfolio with the mysterious abilities of an oriental sorcerer. The head of Aoud Blossom contains mandarin and bergamot, while the rich heart unveils multiple floral tones which include creamy tuberose, sweet narcotic jasmine, earthy powdery violets, richly aphrodisiac ylang-ylang and, of course, the queen of flowers, which is frequently used by Pierre, the rose. The warm base combines the spiciness of oud wood with classic sandalwood, animalistic musk and herby vibrant safflower.
Like all of Pierre Montale’s fragrant creations, Aoud Blossom has been created using natural materials of the highest quality and in high concentrations which ensure that the fragrance has a long-lasting effect. Thanks to its sensuousness, intoxicating nature and complexity, Aoud Blossom is a suitable way to light up your day at any time of the year, day or night. It will appeal to men and women who like sensuous, intoxicating perfumes and the combination of oud wood and floral tones in an original concept. Aoud Blossom should be tried by everybody who appreciates true quality and who likes to feel the breath of the magical history of the Orient upon them.
In addition to magical scents with masterfully balanced aromatic compositions, all the perfumes by Montale also come with captivating, original packaging. The design is enchanting thanks to its straightforward and pure elegance, which, in the case of Aoud Blossom, has been enhanced with the use of a matt metallic gold colour scheme, while the practical selection of the material also makes the flacon unique. Pierre Montale has made the original choice of aluminium, which provides the perfume with perfect protection.

About the brand Montale
The French niche perfumes by Montale are noted for their love of fragrances from the Orient and Arabia and their enchanting history. Every bottle combines the mysterious atmosphere of the East with the passion of its creator and founder, Pierre Montale. Every fragrance by this original brand is literally an elixir of happiness.
Montale was founded in Paris in 2003 by Pierre Montale, for many a mysterious perfume designer who first spent some time in Saudi Arabia, where he created perfumes for the nobility and kings and queens. After his return to Paris, he began to create original fragrances.
He always selects natural materials of the highest quality, especially rare woods, for his fragrances. They often contain eagle wood too, known as oud. They are also often referred to as ‘liquid gold’.
