Fragrance description Montale Royal Aoud
Montale Royal Aoud is an Oriental woody fragrance for men and women with distinctive notes of oud wood and a hint of citrus. 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 combination of highly popular oud wood 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 Royal Aoud Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve.
The main aromatic component in the Royal 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 is sometimes also referred to as “liquid gold” or the “wood of the gods”.
The Royal Aoud Eau de Parfum presents the magic of oud wood in a mysterious combination with original tones from the tropical kumquat tree and notes of grapefruit and Indian spices. The kumquat gives the composition a citrusy and woody hint and the blend, based on the dominant agarwood and full of contrasts, is tastefully supplemented by the richness of Indian spices. Like all of Pierre Montale’s fragrant creations, Royal 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.
The overall composition of Royal Aoud by Montale is highly exotic and original. The mysterious and fresh aspects of this Eau de Parfum have been combined in a fragrance which you will never forget. Pierre Montale has created a mysterious perfume which most definitely belongs among the most interesting interpretations of the theme of oud wood, 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.
Royal Aoud can be worn throughout the entire year, but it stands out best in the cooler months. It is a perfume which is ideal for day wear, as well as for special evening occasions. The Montale Royal Aoud Eau de Parfum will appeal to men and women who like the scent of oud wood, especially in imaginative compositions. 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 Royal Aoud, has been enhanced with the use of a hglossy jet black 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.
