Fragrance description Montale Aoud Flowers
Montale Aoud Flowers is a floral fragrance for men and women with distinctive notes of rare oud wood and roses. It is part of the first French perfume line dedicated to rare oud wood, an ingredient with a 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 Flowers Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve.
The central ingredient in the aromatic composition of the Aoud Flowers perfume is the wood of the Aquilaria tree, also known as eagle wood, agarwood, oud, aoud or (in Arabic) oudh. It is a fascinating material with a resinous aroma and the most expensive wood in the world, and has been used for centuries to make incense and (in particular Arabian) perfumes. This truly regal ingredient is sometimes also referred to as “liquid gold” or “the wood of the gods”.
The very masculine Aoud Flowers Eau de Parfum offers an original interpretation of the popular combination of agarwood and the queen of flowers, the rose. The fresh, invigorating introduction to the fragrance belongs to bergamot, which is immediately complimented by the richness of the rose, which is interestingly combined with other floral tones, among which are marigold and geranium. The masculinity of the fragrance is emphasised by the earthy tones – the oud wood is complimented by sandalwood and teak. A pinch of saffron with an echo of musk gives the overall aromatic composition a high degree of originality.
Aoud Flowers is a fascinating Eau de Parfum which acts somewhat like a honey nectar, but with woody tones which are restrained by its sweetness. A masculine fragrance with a touch of femininity supplied by the freshness of bergamot and the sensuality of musk. It is 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.
Like all of Pierre Montale’s fragrant creations, Aoud Flowers 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 depth and intensity, Aoud Flowers is suitable for day and night wear, especially in the cooler months. It will appeal to men and women who like the typically Oriental combination of the fragrance of oud wood and roses in an original concept. Aoud Flowers should be tried by everybody who appreciates true quality and 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 Flowers, has been enhanced with the use of a glossy dark blue 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.
