Fragrance description Montale Spicy Aoud
Spicy Aoud is a woody Oriental fragrance for men and women from the portfolio of the French Montale perfume brand, which is noted for 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 Spicy Aoud Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve. The luxurious Spicy Aoud Eau de Parfum by Montale presents precious agarwood in a composition with fresh citrus fruit and warm spices.
One of the main aromatic components in the Spicy Aoud Eau de Parfum, Pierre Montale’s beloved wood of the Aquilaria tree, which is also known as eagle wood, agarwood, oud, aoud or (in Arabic) oudh, is a fascinating ingredient with a resinous aroma. The most expensive wood in the world, which 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 saffron, orange and other masterfully combined notes in Spicy Aoud by Montale.
The aromatic composition of the Montale Spicy Aoud Eau de Parfum includes notes of oranges, saffron and agarwood complemented by notes of patchouli and musk. The overall aroma combines the dominant warmly spicy and oud aspects with citrus and musk attributes and an intriguing touch of patchouli and it is intense, yet fresh and warm and, above all, extremely sensual. Pierre Montale has created a fragrance with a somewhat minimalist, yet intriguing and unmistakable composition, 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, the Spicy Aoud Eau de Parfum 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 Spicy Aoud is suitable for both day and evening wear, all year round. It will, however, stand out best on autumn and winter evenings. This captivating Eau de Parfum will appeal to men and women who like the scent of agarwood.
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 Spicy Aoud, has been enhanced with the use of an attractive glossy gold colour scheme which transitions to black, 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.
