Fragrance description Montale Aoud Melody
Montale Aoud Melody is an Oriental fragrance for men and women with a distinctive note of oud wood. As with all the fragrances from the Montale brand, the greatly admired, yet somewhat enigmatic Pierre Montale has given the Aoud Melody Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve.
One of the main aromatic components in the Aoud Melody Eau de Parfum, the wood of the Aquilaria tree so loved by Pierre Montale, also 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 has been used for centuries to make incense and (especially Arabian) perfumes. This truly regal ingredient, also sometimes called “liquid gold” or “the wood of the gods”, appears in Montale Aoud Melody in combination with balsamic and spicy notes.
The aromatic composition of the Montale Aoud Melody Eau de Parfum opens in the head with notes of oud wood, leather, cloves, saffron and elemi resin. The floral heart contains Egyptian jasmine, delicate roses and sunny ylang-ylang. The warm creamy base consists of tones of sandalwood, amber and musk. The overall aroma offers the perfect harmony of the intense tones of oud wood with warm spicy and balsamic aspects and beautiful touches of leather and musk. The melody, which also appears in the name of the Eau de Parfum, is further emphasised by its wonderful floral heart.
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 Melody 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 Melody is suitable for day and evening wear, all year round. This Eau de Parfum will appeal to men and women who like the scent of oud wood, especially in combination with balsamic and spicy notes. It 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 Melody, has been enhanced with the use of an attractive glossy golden brown 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.

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’.
