Fragrance description Montale Orange Aoud
Montale Orange Aoud is an 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 a rich and sublime variation on the theme of oud wood. As with all the fragrances from the Montale brand, the greatly admired, yet somewhat enigmatic Pierre Montale has given the Orange Aoud Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve.
The central aromatic component in the Orange 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”, is combined with leather, flowers and other masterfully combined notes in Orange Aoud by Montale.
The aromatic composition of the Montale Orange Aoud Eau de Parfum opens in the head with notes of Malaysian oud wood, saffron and bergamot. The heart contains of patchouli, roses and violets, while the base consists of tones of sandalwood from Mysore in India, oakmoss, leather and light musk. The overall aroma masterfully combines leathery, woody and powdery aspects with warm spicy, floral and musky attributes. The result is a highly pleasant fragrance which also includes a significant amount of noble character.
Pierre Montale has created yet another extremely successful and original interpretation of fascinating oud wood which deserves admiring attention, 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, Orange 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.
Orange Aoud by Montale is suitable for day and evening wear, all year round. This Eau de Parfum will appeal to men and women who like the scent of oud wood, especially in compositions where it is not overly dominant and it is accompanied by notes of leather, flowers and spices. 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 Orange Aoud, has been enhanced with the use of an attractive orange 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.
