Montale Aoud Sense by Montale Perfume. Announced in 2015, Montale Aoud Sense is a woody aromatic shared women’s and men’s fragrance. The head notes open with orange, mandarin orange, cloves, and black pepper. The heart notes of Bulgarian rose and oud follow, with a Haitian vetiver base note closing the composition. This versatile fragrance can be worn either day or night during the spring, summer, and fall seasons. The aluminum flacon has a dark-to-light purple gradient, with a gold neck, spray cap, and decoration.
Perfumer Pierre Montale founded his namesake brand in 2003 in Paris, France. His first experience in the fragrance world was in the family business, Comptoir Sud Pacifique. After fifteen years in business, the company was sold and he went to work at perfume houses in Saudi Arabia, Dubai, and Qatar, where he was introduced to oud-based fragrances. He developed his own through his brand and later launched a second brand, Mancera, which creates lighter, fresher versions of Arab-inspired fragrances.
