Fragrance description Montale Honey Aoud
Honey Aoud is an Oriental fragrance for men and women 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 Honey Aoud Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve. The irresistibly delicious Honey Aoud Eau de Parfum by Montale presents an imaginative combination of honey and agarwood.
One of the main aromatic components in the Honey Aoud 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 resinous 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, also sometimes called “liquid gold” or the “wood of the gods”, is combined with the aroma of honey and wonderfully complimented by the spices in Honey Aoud by Montale.
The composition of the original Montale Honey Aoud Eau de Parfum contains notes of honey, oud wood, flowers, patchouli, cinnamon, leather, vanilla and amber. The irresistible honey heart, surrounded by patchouli leaves from Sumatra and delicate floral notes and enlivened with Ceylon cinnamon, is reinforced by the rare Laos agarwood, rich amber, leather and intense vanilla pods from Madagascar.
The overall aroma imaginatively combines the dominant honey and oud aspects with warmly spicy, cinnamon and sweet aspects and it is delicious, warm, rich and simply irresistible. 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 Honey Aoud Eau de Parfum 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 Honey Aoud is suitable for both day and evening wear, all year round. It will, however, stand out best on autumn and winter evenings. It will appeal to men and women who like original Oriental fragrances and appreciate true excellence in perfumes.
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 Honey Aoud, has been enhanced with the use of a golden-orange 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.
