Fragrance description Montale Aoud Forest
Montale Aoud Forest is a fresh fragrance for men and women with distinctive notes of rare oud wood and marine tones. 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 Forest Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve.
The central ingredient in the aromatic composition of the Aoud Forest perfume is the wood of the Aquilaria tree, 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 highly creative Aoud Forest Eau de Parfum offers a completely new concept of a refreshing fragrance. The introduction to the perfume presents the embodiment of summer at the seaside. The marine tones with the freshness of citrus and grapefruit are aromatically complimented by the notes of rosemary and ginger. The invigorating aquatic opening of the fragrance is followed by a green forest under the summer sun. The woody tones soften and the sensuous musk and the rose, which is such a favourite of the fragrance’s creator, bring everything together into the overall aromatic composition.
Aoud Forest artfully balances freshness and fullness and as such it is a very original summer fragrance and a further elaboration of the Oriental agarwood theme. Pierre Montale has created a perfume which plays with the best of oud wood in an absolutely exceptional and yet harmonic combination with green tones, 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 Forest 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 playfulness, lightness and freshness, Aoud Forest is especially suitable as a perfume for day wear in the warmer months. It will appeal to men and women who like unconventional, fresh summer perfumes and the fragrance of oud wood in an original concept. Aoud Forest 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 Forest, has been enhanced with the use of a glossy dark brown colour scheme with flecks of gold, 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.
