What are Montale Perfumes?

Montale Perfumes is a niche brand started by French Perfumer Pierre Montale who was traveling extensively to the Middle East in the 1990s and saw that men and women were attracted to oud, a  rare ingredient rarely used in Western Perfumery. Pierre Montale started Montale Perfumes in 2003 and was one of the first perfumers to use oud in fragrances. Today, oud perfumes are trendy with most designer and niche companies bringing its exotic scent to their fragrance collections.  The House of Montale is known of their collection of Oud perfumes and often use notes that contrast the smoky resinous wood that is its trademark. Montale Perfumes use the finest rose, amber, honey, vanilla and floral ingredients to bring out oud’s beauty, balancing and softening its natural strength.


Montale Perfumes offer a wide variety of mostly oud centric fragrances that range from smoky and spicy to floral and fruity. They’re among the most popular scents for millennials and have probably appeared on your Instagram feed by now for a reason.
