Beware: If you haven't had a vacation in a while, Aqua Gold will make you want one, stat. For inspiration, Montale looked to Capri, the stunning Italian island edged with rocky cliffs and surrounded by deep blue sea. Aqua Gold smells of adventure, of taking the ferry to a place you've never been, and of being immersed in a language you don't understand. But it also smells of comfort, sun, and warm air. Ah, Capri. Notes include lemon, grapefruit, lavender, ginger, pepper, violet, blackcurrant, vetiver, cedar, leather, and sandalwood.
Montale is the creation of Pierre Montale, who worked as an official perfumer for the Saudi royal family before returning to Paris to introduce Western perfume lovers to the rich world of Middle Eastern perfumery ingredients.
