Fragrance description Montale Moon Aoud
Montale Moon Aoud is a woody Oriental fragrance for men and women with distinctive notes of oud wood and roses. 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 combination of oud wood and roses in an original combination with other notes. As with all the fragrances from the Montale brand, the greatly admired, yet somewhat enigmatic Pierre Montale has given the Moon Aoud Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve.
One of the central aromatic components in the Moon Aoud 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 it 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”, has been popularly combined with roses in Moon Aoud by Montale.
The Moon Aoud Eau de Parfum is inspired, as the name suggests, by the moon, which Pierre Montale perceives as being feminine. Moon Aoud evokes the moon, whose beauty is enhanced by a haze consisting of fragrant notes of roses, oud wood, saffron, leather, patchouli, vetiver, amber and sandalwood. A feminine, clear veil which calls for an eclipse. Montale Moon Oud pays tribute to the moon and extols its power and mystical light which shines out in the night.
The overall composition of Montale Moon Aoud is highly complex, diverse and deep. The magical moment of an eclipse is depicted with the timeless combination of oud wood and roses, which is typical of the Montale brand. The heavy tones of wood and roses create a magical contrast with the fresh roses and spicy saffron. Amber provides a hint of warmth. Pierre Montale has created an intense and magical perfume which provides its wearer with an experience which is comparable to the majesty of an eclipse of the sun, 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, Moon Aoud has been created using natural materials of the highest quality and in high concentrations which ensure that the fragrance has a long-lasting effect.
Moon Aoud is suitable for day and evening wear in the cooler months. It should be tried by everybody who appreciates true quality and 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 Moon Aoud, has been enhanced with the use of a gold colour scheme with elements depicting the eclipse, 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.
Montale Moon Aoud – the fragrance of the veil which conceals the moon before an eclipse.
