Fragrance description Montale Aoud Lavender
Aoud Lavender is a floral Oriental fragrance for men and women with distinctive notes of lavender and agarwood. It belongs to the portfolio of the French perfume brand Montale, which is noted for 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 Lavender Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve. Montale Aoud Lavender imaginatively combines the fragrances of lavender and oud wood.
One of the main aromatic components in the Aoud Lavender Eau de Parfum is Pierre Montale’s beloved wood of the Aquilaria tree, which is also known as eagle wood, agarwood, oud, aoud or (in Arabic) oudh. It is a fascinating ingredient with a resinous aroma. The most expensive wood in the world, which 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 Montale Aoud Lavender Eau de Parfum combines the unmistakable appeal of fresh lavender with the warmth of spices, the sparkle of citrus and delicate floral touches. It achieves all this on a harmonic and yet sensuous base. The Aoud Lavender fragrance opens in the head with notes of lavender, bergamot, saffron and lemon, while the heart contains patchouli and floral notes. The base consists of tones of amber, agarwood, sandalwood, light musk and powdery notes. The overall aroma imaginatively combines aromatic and freshly spicy aspects with powdery, floral and oud attributes.
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. Pierre Montale has created a perfume which conjoins the Orient and the West in a fragrance. Like all of Pierre Montale’s fragrant creations, the Aoud Lavender Eau de Parfum Ever has been created using natural materials of the highest quality and in high concentrations which ensure that the fragrance has a long-lasting effect.
Montale Aoud Lavender is especially suitable for evening wear in the spring and autumn months. It will appeal to men and women who like original oud and aromatic lavender fragrances. Aoud Lavender should be tried by everybody who appreciates true quality and who likes to discover something new.
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 Lavender, has been enhanced with the use of a glossy lavender 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.
