Montale Orange Aoud by Montale Perfume. Montale Orange Aoud is a woody spicy women’s and men’s fragrance that was announced in 2014. It opens with top notes of oud, bergamot, and saffron and leads to middle notes of violet, patchouli, and rose.
Base notes of sandalwood, leather, musk, and oakmoss close this composition. This scent can be worn day or night during the spring, summer, and fall months. The aluminum flacon has a copper color, with gold-orange print on the flacon and gold top and charm.
Montale is the eponymous niche perfume house of perfumer Pierre Montale, who comes from the family that started Comptoir Sud Pacifique. After fifteen years in business, Comptoir Sud Pacifique was sold, and the perfumer moved on to positions at perfume houses in Dubai, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.
Upon his return to Paris, France in 2003, the perfumer founded his company. This brand features oud, as well as other Arabian ingredients such as incense, sandalwood, and cedar. A second brand, Mancera, was launched in 2008 and features lighter, fresher versions of these scents.
