Fragrance description Montale Aoud Night
Montale Aoud Night is a woody Oriental fragrance for men and women with a distinctive note of oud wood. This Eau de Parfum from a French perfume brand which is noted for its love of fragrances from the Orient and Arabia and for its interest in their enchanting history offers the popular fragrance of oud wood in a combination with leather, roses and other perfectly balanced notes. As with all the fragrances from the Montale brand, the greatly admired, yet somewhat enigmatic Pierre Montale has given the Aoud Night Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve.
One of the main aromatic components in the Aoud Night 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 Night in a rich, multilayered composition which excellently underlines its mysterious power.
The aromatic composition of the Montale Aoud Night Eau de Parfum opens in the head with notes of bergamot, Sicilian lemon, juicy fruity notes and oud wood from Malaysia. The heart contains roses and patchouli, while the rich and sensual base consists of tones of amber, light musk, leather, guaiac wood and sandalwood. The overall aroma harmonically blends the floral and spicy aspects with the sensual guaiac and sandalwood from Mysore in India and the mystic Malaysian oud wood.
Pierre Montale has created another extremely successful and original interpretation of fascinating oud wood which harmonically emphasises the mystical power of this ingredient, 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 Night 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 Night is suitable for wearing all year round, especially in the evening. This Eau de Parfum will appeal to men and women who like the scent of oud wood, especially in combination with roses, leather and balsamic 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 Night, has been enhanced with the use of an attractive golden colour scheme which transitions to black, 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’.
