Fragrance description Montale Crystal AoudIngredients
Montale Crystal Aoud is a fruity-woody Oriental fragrance for men and women with a highly original composition. 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 richness of exotic fruit in combination with the popular fragrance of the rose. As with all the fragrances from the Montale brand, the greatly admired, yet somewhat enigmatic Pierre Montale has given the Crystal Aoud Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve.
The central ingredient in the aromatic composition of the Montale Crystal Aoud perfume, the wood of the Aquilaria tree, 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 (in particular Arabian) perfumes. This truly regal ingredient, also sometimes called “liquid gold” or the “wood of the gods”, has been combined with fruity tones in the highly original composition of Crystal Aoud by Montale.
The Crystal Aoud Eau de Parfum presents a fruity cocktail full of life on a deep woody base. The composition has been softened by the vanilla and light musk and given added spice by the saffron. The melon, green apple and Sicilian mandarin are followed by oud wood, sandalwood, teak and patchouli. The base consists of saffron, musk and vanilla. Montale Crystal Oud constitutes the masterful interpretation of the mysterious fragrance of oud wood with juicy tones and a deep base.
Pierre Montale has created a perfume which combines contrasting tones in an original manner, 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, Crystal 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.
Thanks to its complexity, Crystal Aoud is suitable for day and evening wear, all year round. Montale Crystal Aoud will appeal to men and women who like exceptional Oriental fragrances which combine seemingly contradictory notes. 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 Crystal Aoud, has been enhanced with the use of an attractive glossy red colour scheme with gold flecks, 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.
