Fragrance description Montale Aoud Purple Rose
Montale Aoud Purple Rose is a rich floral Oriental 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 Purple Rose 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 Purple Rose perfume, the wood of the Aquilaria tree, also known as eagle wood, agar wood, 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 (in particular Arabian) perfumes. This truly regal ingredient, also sometimes called “liquid gold” or the “wood of the gods”, merges with the fragrance of roses in the composition of Aoud Purple Rose by Montale so as to constitute yet another interesting variant featuring this popular duo.
The beautiful and popular Aoud Purple Rose Eau de Parfum presents the petals of the rare Taif rose grown in the vicinity of the Arabian desert. This rose’s very fresh and sophisticated fragrance magically combines with the bright saffron in the aromatic composition of Montale Aoud Purple Rose and its delicateness helps to emphasise the distinct luxury of the oud wood. This magical combination is tastefully complimented by the tones of sandalwood and the sensuous base consisting of notes of amber, musk and leather.
The enchanting Aoud Purple Rose Eau de Parfum excites the senses and its sensual fragrance will spice up even the wearer’s most humdrum day and fill it with happy emotions. Pierre Montale has created a perfume which offers one of the most successful compositions combining the fragrance of oud wood and roses, 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 Purple Rose 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 sensuality, depth and definite elegance, Aoud Purple Rose is especially suitable as a day and evening perfume for the cooler months. It will appeal to men and women who like the combination of the fragrance of oud wood and roses in an original concept. Aoud Purple Rose 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 Purple Rose, has been enhanced with the use of a glossy purple 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’.
