Fragrance description Montale Aoud Amber Rose
Montale Aoud Amber Rose is a spicy-woody Oriental fragrance for men and women with distinctive notes of oud wood and the queen of flowers, the rose. It is part of the first French perfume line dedicated to rare oud wood, an ingredient with a resinous aroma. This line has been brought to the world by the Montale brand, which is characterised by 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 Aoud Amber Rose Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve.
The Aoud Amber Rose Eau de Parfum is distinguished by a very youthful and sumptuous character. It plays with the fragrant theme of oud wood, which is known under many names. The wood of the Aquilaria tree, 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 (in particular Arabian) perfumes. This regal ingredient, also known as “liquid gold” or “the wood of the gods”, complements the diverse fragrant notes in an original way, with an emphasis on roses in the composition of Montale Aoud Amber Rose.
Pierre Montale has created a perfume which is an original interpretation of the popular combination of the fragrance of oud wood and the aroma of roses, 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. The combination of these two fragrant tones is complemented in the composition with guaiac wood, saffron, grapefruit, cedar and white musk, which give the Aoud Amber Rose Eau de Parfum a unique dynamism. The fragrance opens as a sophisticated rose stabilised with a light smoky-spicy hint, so that its floral woody character suddenly develops with the piquant note of musk. Over time, the perfume becomes more distinctively woody on the skin and a hint of animality appears in it.
Like all of Pierre Montale’s fragrant creations, Aoud Amber Rose 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 combination of its endurance, complexity and distinctiveness makes Aoud Amber Rose suitable for day and night wear, especially in spring. It will appeal to men and women who like the combination of oud wood and roses in an original concept. Aoud Amber Rose should be tried by everybody who appreciates true quality and who 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 Aoud Amber Rose, has been enhanced with the use of a metallic pink colour scheme, while the practical selection of the material also makes the flacon unique. Pierre Montale has made the original choice of aluminium, which provides the perfume with perfect protection.
