Fragrance description Montale Aoud Cuir d'Arabie
Montale Aoud Cuir d’Arabie is an Oriental fragrance for men with distinctive notes of oud wood and leather. 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 popular fragrance of oud wood in a fascinating combination with leather and other notes in a rich and deep composition. As with all the fragrances from the Montale brand, the greatly admired, yet somewhat enigmatic Pierre Montale has given the Aoud Cuir d’Arabie Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve.
One of the main aromatic components in the Aoud Cuir d’Arabie Eau de Parfum is Pierre Montale’s beloved wood of the Aquilaria tree, which is also known as eagle wood, agarwood, oud, aoud or (in Arabic) oudh. It is a fascinating material with a resinous aroma and the most expensive wood in the world, and has been used for centuries to make incense and (in particular Arabian) perfumes. This truly regal ingredient is sometimes also referred to as “liquid gold” or “the wood of the gods”.
The aromatic composition of the Montale Aoud Cuir d’Arabie Eau de Parfum consists of notes of tobacco, leather, birch and oud wood, which is given the opportunity to fully express its wonderful character, combining strength and softness. The combination of tobacco, dry leather tones and the smoky notes of burnt wood create a dark and strong opening. The overall aroma gradually softens, but it still remains intense, dry and distinctive. The piquant rich fragrance of Aoud Cuir d’Arabie, with its strong, sensuous, animal nuances, is an excellent choice for lovers of distinctive leather fragrances.
Pierre Montale has created an exceptionally seductive perfume in which the masterful use of the note of leather particularly calls for 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 Cuir d’Arabie 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 Aoud Cuir d’Arabie is suitable for day and evening wear, all year round. This Eau de Parfum will appeal to men with a strong personality and to lovers of distinctive spicy fragrances who are able to emphasise the character of the fragrance and use it to attract the attention of those around them. It should also be tried by everybody who appreciates real quality.
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 Cuir d’Arabie, has been enhanced with the use of an attractive dark metallic 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.
