Fragrance description Montale Black Aoud
Montale Black Aoud is a woody floral musk fragrance for men with distinctive notes of oud wood and roses. 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 duo of oud wood and roses in an attractive combination with other notes. As with all the fragrances from the Montale brand, the greatly admired, yet somewhat enigmatic Pierre Montale has given the Black Aoud Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve.
One of the central aromatic components in the Black Aoud 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 resinous aroma and the most expensive wood in the world, and it has been used for centuries to make incense and (especially Arabian) perfumes. This truly regal ingredient, sometimes known as “liquid gold” or the “wood of the gods”, is attractively combined with roses in Black Aoud by Montale, while the floral-herbal aspect is also supported by captivating patchouli.
The aromatic composition of the Montale Black Aoud Eau de Parfum consists of notes of roses, French labdanum, musk, Indonesian patchouli, mandarin and magnificent Cambodian oud wood. The overall aroma of Montale Black Aoud presents the intriguing combination of the dominant duo of oud wood and roses with sweetish and slightly dark patchouli and supporting notes supplied by the sensual musky, attractive balsamic and fresh citrus aspects.
The original and masterfully balanced composition gives the impression that the time he spent in Saudi Arabia imbued the brand’s founder and the creator of all the perfumes in its portfolio with the mysterious abilities of an Oriental sorcerer. Pierre Montale has created yet another imaginative interpretation of oud wood in a perfume which provides its wearer with a new fragrant experience. Like all of Pierre Montale’s fragrant creations, Black 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.
Black Aoud is suitable for day and evening wear, all year round. This Eau de Parfum will appeal to men who like the popular combination of oud wood and roses. 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 Black Aoud, has been enhanced with the use of a glossy dark black 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.
