Mancera Intensive Aoud Black Perfume by Mancera, Mancera Intensive Aoud Black is a spicy oriental scent thatÕs pleasantly warm and perfect for easy-going men and women. The spicy notes are immediately distinctive from the fragranceÕs opening: cloves and pepper, with juicy peach to temper them. The heart features an accord curiously reminiscent of Turkish delight, with the scent of roses joined by jasmine, saffron and violet. Finally, the titular oud, or agarwood, forms the rich woody foundation of the perfume along with cedar, sandalwood and gurjan balsam. Designed by Pierre Montale and released in 2008, the scent remains intense and captivating through the day, the spices enriched by the floral and woody notes.
In 2008, Pierre Montale opened ManderaÕs first boutique in Paris, tapping into his experiences traveling and studying in the Middle East to establish this sister brand to Montale. Based on refined and luxurious ingredients, his fragrances also draw upon Art Deco inspirations, evident in each starkly stylish bottle designed by MontaleÕs daughter, AmŽlie
