Description Montale LoubanIngredients
Montale Louban is a woody Oriental fragrance for men and women with intriguingly selected notes. 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 a unique combination of rare woods and roses with tones of flowers, musk and incense. As with all the fragrances from the Montale brand, the greatly admired, yet somewhat enigmatic Pierre Montale has given the Louban Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve.
The Louban Eau de Parfum presents the sumptuous softness of the essence of Turkish roses in combination with the power of the most expensive wood in the world, oud wood, a captivating ingredient with a resinous aroma. This combination is wrapped up in the silken tones of violet leaves and sensually supplemented with musk, the light smoky haze of patchouli from Indonesia and Indian sandalwood. Altogether, this creates a mysterious, predominantly woody composition with no lack of character, diversity or captivating complexity. Like all of Pierre Montale’s fragrant creations, the Louban perfume 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 Louban is a true gem from Pierre Montale’s workshop. The combination of oud wood and roses, which is highly characteristic of the Montale brand, has been complemented with a smoke screen of incense which is so tasteful that it transports the entire composition to a remarkably mysterious plane. Pierre Montale has created a perfume with such an original and perfectly balanced composition that it simply cannot be placed in any of the regular categories, 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.
The Montale Louban perfume is simultaneously Oriental, woody, floral, balsamic, smoky and resinous, but for all that none of these aspects is predominant. The unique composition of the Montale Louban Eau de Parfum means that it is suitable for use all year round, as different aspects stand out from it in each different season. In winter, the wearer is warmed by the woody tones. In summer, the wonderful, exceptional rose stands out, while the violets stand out in spring and in autumn the Louban fragrance merges excellently with the melancholic atmosphere via its smoky aspect. This Eau de Parfum is suitable for day and evening wear.
Montale Louban will appeal to men and women who like Oriental fragrances, especially with notes of oud wood and roses. It should also be tried by everybody who appreciates real quality combined with originality. 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 Louban, has been enhanced with the use of a wonderfully delicate gold-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.
