Montale Dark Purple by Montale Perfume. First launched in 2011, Montale Dark Purple is a deep, seductive rose fragrance that layers lush fruit and
floral elements over a rich yet refined base of precious woods and light musk. The opening is a luscious blend of dark plum and fresh orange. Ripe, redolent fruit notes persist at the floral heart, which fuses the velvety sensuality of Turkish rose and citrus-tinged geranium with a sumptuous cocktail of red berries. Earthy, autumn-sweet patchouli
grounds and balances the fruits and florals of the introduction, followed by a warm, mysterious finish of grey amber, teak wood and white musk.
French perfumer Pierre Montale established his eponymous label in Paris in 2003. Inspired by his experience creating fragrances for nobility and royalty in Saudi Arabia, the designer's compositions blend elements of both eastern and western traditions. Other rose scents by the house include Aoud Amber Rose (2010), Aoud Rose Petals (2005), Aoud Queen Roses (2007), Candy Rose (2012) and Highness Rose (2012).
