Fragrance description Montale Aoud Sense
The Aoud Sense Eau de Parfum by Montale is a unisex woody aromatic fragrance from the portfolio of the French Montale perfume brand, which is noted for 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 Sense Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve. Aoud Sense by Montale presents the popular duo of roses and oud wood with the original addition of citrus fruits.
One of the main aromatic components in the Aoud Sense Eau de Parfum, Pierre Montale’s beloved wood of the Aquilaria tree, which is also known as eagle wood, agarwood, oud, aoud or (in Arabic) oudh, is a fascinating ingredient with a resiny aroma. It is 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, sometimes also referred to as "liquid gold" or the "wood of the gods", is used in Aoud Sense by Montale in a popular combination with roses which have been complemented in an original way with juicy citrus fruits. Aoud Sense opens in the head with notes of orange, mandarin, black pepper and cloves, while the heart contains agarwood and Bulgarian roses and the base consists of tones of Haitian vetiver. The overall aroma of Aoud Sense imaginatively combines the citrus, rose and oud aspects and complements them with fresh spicy attributes and a slight touch of sweetness. It is juicily fresh and piquant, yet sensual.
Pierre Montale has created yet another completely original fragrance which deserves the attention of even the most demanding perfume experts, 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, the Aoud Sense Eau de Parfum Ever 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 Sense is suitable for both day and evening wear, all year round. However, it stands out best in the spring and autumn months. It will appeal to women and men who like the combination of oud wood and roses and are able to appreciate it in a highly original form and excellent 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 Sense, has been enhanced with the use of a shaded purple colour scheme, 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.
