Fragrance description Montale Starry Nights
Starry Nights is an Oriental floral 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 Starry Nights Eau de Parfum an original character evoking a miraculous elixir or a rare magical salve. Montale Starry Nights presents patchouli, roses, musk and citrus fruit in an imaginative Oriental composition.
The aromatic composition of the Montale Starry Nights Eau de Parfum opens in the head with notes of lemon, bergamot and apple. The heart contains patchouli, roses and jasmine and the base consists of tones of amber, light musk and powdery notes. As its poetic name suggests, the Starry Nights fragrance is calmly poetic and it is a perfect evening perfume. The Calabrian bergamot in the introduction excellently complements the floral heart, in which notes of Bulgarian roses and Egyptian jasmine, reinforced with Oriental notes of patchouli from Sumatra, slowly transition into the warm, sensitive and slightly powdery base.
The overall aroma involves a balanced combination of citrus, rose, musk and powdery aspects with distinctive patchouli and it is calming, exceedingly sensual, distinctive and, in particular, absolutely wonderful and irresistible. Pierre Montale has created a perfect aromatic depiction of a wonderful night full of shining stars somewhere in the distant Orient, 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 Starry Nights 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 Starry Nights is particularly suited to evening wear and it stands out best in the cooler months. It will appeal to men and women who like Oriental floral fragrances with a significant role for the sensual duo of roses and musk. Everybody who appreciates a high degree of evocativeness in a perfume should be sure to try Starry Nights.
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 Starry Nights, has been enhanced with the use of a glossy light purple colour scheme which gradually transitions to black, 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.
