MONTALE “BLACK AOUD”
Black Aoud is a dramatic fragrance – but don’t confuse that with overly strong. It’s medium bodied and very rich, a bubbling potion of velvety rose and the old leather feel of labdanum, mixed with mystical oud tree oils. It’s a rare journey somewhere where you’ve probably never been and will beg to return to… all it takes is a little whiff of this amazing, rare elixir. If you seek a deeply incensed rose and sandalwood fragrance, one that would have scented the brightly dyed pillows of a harem, you need look no further.
The French Ambassador of Oud
Pierre Montale had a date with destiny 20 years ago in the far reaches of the Kingdom of Arabia.
Inspired by the beauty and hidden secrets of the Eastern world, between learning process and pure marvel, he composes with confidential and millennial olfactory materials such as rose, incense, amber, cedar, precious woods and a thousand other wonderful scents like happy ointments or love potions.
On the range of Pierre Montale’s most popular scents rises the spirit of the oud, keeper of traditions at the gates to the east. Pierre Montale will become the first ambassador for the West. Subjugated by his infinite combinatorial properties, Pierre Montale became the first ambassador of oud for the west.
Back to his homeland in 2003, he presents his first creations under the aegis of the new eponymous house. A unique olfactory immersion revealing a perfection only accessible with our eyes closed.
The Oud: woods of god
On the range of Pierre Montale’s most popular scents rises the spirit of the oud, keeper of traditions at the gates to the east. Fragrant Asian ointment commonly used in the gulf region and Saudi Arabia, this scent is extracted from the oud tree. A secret millennia process kept away from light during several years.
Subjugated by his infinite combinatorial properties, Pierre Montale became the first exporter of oud for the west. He will then compose more than a hundred of timeless fragrances.
Travels, encounters and dazzling, from the desert to the domes of the citadel, experience the original emotion of this tireless traveler, who radiates silently in the first film of Montale Paris.
