Montale Parfums was born in 2001 in the Arabic Peninsula to provide the Arabian Kings, Queens, Sultans and Princesses, the most rare and precious pure perfumes, in accordance to the ageless tradition of Oriental perfumery. Specialized in the refined art of harmonising extremely beautiful oriental essences, Montale became the first French perfumer to base his line on Aoud scent. The Aoud is used in oriental perfumery since the dawn of time. The luxurious Aouds are fragranced ointments extracted from the oils of the Aoud tree. Aoud is a precious oil from the bark resin of Aquilara – also known as Ud or Oud-Only trees of a certain age (50 years) deliver this essence. A thousand-year-old secret process gives us this deep wonderful scent. Its subtlety and richness come from its vintage nature.
