Dark Purple description
If you’re a fan of vivid, deep, and luscious scents, we’d like to introduce you to Montale, a Parisian perfume house that holds nothing back when creating their distinctive and powerful scents. Pierre Montale, the founder and perfumer of this line has a singular vision in fragrance, one that emphasizes texture as much as intensity. Montale’s perfumes are statement scents, extroverted, bold and delicious on the skin.
Dark Purple is like biting into a ripe, cold plum plucked from a wooden bowl filled to the brim with frosted ice cubes. The opening is a mouthwatering, juicy rush of fleshy, wet plums and oranges, followed by cool, snowstorm-fresh geranium.
The cool, green geranium fades down into a clever contrast of voluptuous, syrupy roses and dry, herbal patchouli. These two heart notes create a complex exchange of enticing opposites, with tremendous longevity and depth, until finally drying down to the soft, bright teak wood and musk in the base.
Dark Purple is fine for both men and women to wear, and will complement any kind of look you’re after. If you love to wear bright, hyper-saturated tones, this scent’s round, full fruitiness will accentuate a bright ensemble, or add a dandyish flair to a man’s profile. If a more neutral palette is what you feel most comfortable in, Dark Purple will be the missing source of color.
If you’re interested in other scents from this line, try Montale’s Roses Musk for another take on the rose note featured here, or Soleil de Capri to sample how Montale does bright citrus in a lighter mode. Montale’s perfumes will soon become your scent of choice when you want a fragrance style that is both bold and complimentary, powerful but sophisticated, and can take traditional notes in dramatically new directions. Let these scents be your guide when you’re ready to boldly go in a new direction in your life as well.
