Fragrance description Montale Steam Aoud
Montale Steam Aoud is a woody 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 highly original combination of oud wood with unique spices and tobacco. As with all the fragrances from the Montale brand, the greatly admired, yet somewhat enigmatic Pierre Montale has given the Steam Aoud Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve.
The central aromatic component in the Steam 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 combined with other, truly original notes in the composition of Steam Aoud by Montale.
The Steam Aoud Eau de Parfum presents the captivating fragrance of the oil from the Indonesian aggar motta herb in association with oud wood from Cambodia and a touch of amber and tobacco leaves with a pinch of spice. The overall aromatic composition is highly exotic and it evokes the beauty of an Oriental garden basking in the moonlight with the evening air scented with a thousand fragrances. Like all of Pierre Montale’s fragrant creations, Steam 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.
Montale Steam Aoud, an Eau de Parfum which was originally launched under the name Aoud Hoggar Mota, is deep and meditative. Pierre Montale has created a captivating perfume which is yet another successful and highly intriguing interpretation of his favourite perfume ingredient, 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.
Steam Aoud is ideal for day wear and for special evening occasions, all year round. The Montale Steam 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 Steam Aoud, has been enhanced with the use of an attractive 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.
