Description Montale Aoud ShinyIngredients
Montale Aoud Shiny is a floral-woody Oriental fragrance for men and women with distinctive notes of oud wood and roses. It is part of the first French perfume line dedicated to the rare oud wood, an ingredient with a resinous aroma. This line has been launched 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 Shiny 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 Shiny perfume, the wood of the Aquilaria tree, 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 it 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”, is combined with roses and violets in Aoud Shiny by Montale.
The Aoud Shiny Eau de Parfum presents the dazzling brightness of Bulgarian roses and the delicateness of violet leaves which complement the original nagarmotha (cypress oil), luxurious sandalwood and perennial patchouli. Naturally, the composition is based on the magic of oud wood. The freshness of the roses and the earthiness of the patchouli create an interesting harmony of opposites in Aoud Shiny by Montale; the warm sweet violet petals are supplemented by a surprising element, which shifts the composition towards a light, playful form along with the cypress note.
Pierre Montale has created a perfume which combines original elements into a harmonious whole which is full of life and elegance, 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 Shiny 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 complexity, Aoud Shiny is suitable for day and evening wear, all year round. It will appeal to men and women who like the combination of roses and oud wood in original compositions. Everybody who appreciates true quality and likes to feel the breath of the magical history of the Orient upon them should try Aoud Shiny. 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 Shiny, has been enhanced with the use of an attractive glossy dark pink colour scheme, while the practical selection of the material also makes the flacon unique. Pierre Montale has made the original choice of an aluminium flacon which provides the perfume with perfect protection.
