Fragrance description Montale Aoud Musk
Montale Aoud Musk is a woody Oriental fragrance for men and women with a distinctive note of oud wood. This Eau de Parfum comes 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. As with all the fragrances from the Montale brand, the greatly admired, yet somewhat enigmatic Pierre Montale has given the Aoud Musk Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve.
One of the main aromatic components in the Aoud Musk 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 resiny aroma and the most expensive wood in the world, and 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”, appears in Montale Aoud Musk in a duo with musk, which is much loved by the brand.
The aromatic composition of the Aoud Musk Eau de Parfum by Montale is an elegant mixture of notes of saffron, ebony wood, vetiver, amber and, of course, musk and oud wood. The richness of the musk settles on the skin like a sweet haze and envelops the more powerful oud wood in sensual languor. The saffron emphasises the spicy aspects of the agarwood, while the vetiver adds a touch of smokiness and the amber gives a soft, lightly powdery impression. Aoud Musk presents oud wood in a wonderfully sublime variant which is reminiscent of stroking a “tamed” big cat which is purring and whose claws are ever so slightly extended.
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, Aoud Musk has been created using natural materials of the highest quality and in high concentrations which ensure the long duration of the fragrance.
Montale Aoud Musk 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 in combination with sensuous musk. It 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 Musk, has been enhanced with the use of an attractive glossy golden brown 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.
