The central aromatic component in the Dark Aoud Eau de Parfum, the wood of the Aquilaria tree so loved by Pierre Montale, also known as eagle wood, agarwood, oud, aoud or (in Arabic) oudh, is a fascinating material with a resinous aroma and the most expensive wood in the world, and it has been used for centuries to make incense and (especially Arabian) perfumes. This truly regal ingredient, also sometimes called “liquid gold” or the “wood of the gods”, is combined with sandalwood in Dark Aoud by Montale.
The minimalist aromatic composition of the Dark Aoud Eau de Parfum by Montale consists of notes of oud wood and sandalwood. The magnificence of Indian sandalwood, combined with the dark intensity of agarwood from the depths of Asian forests, has created a captivatingly mysterious, dry woody fragrance which is far from being as linear as one would expect. The opening of Dark Aoud evokes entering a pitch-black room, where you have to look around for a while before you begin to be able to distinguish the shapes and nuances of the objects hidden in the dark. The smokiness of the oud wood, accompanied by the elegance of the sandalwood, gradually develops into delicate piquancy. The fragrance of the Dark Aoud Eau de Parfum by Montale softens as it develops and it presents powdery piquancy, while remaining intense and magically mysterious throughout.
