Montauk is everywhere 1
Uncommented fragrances No. 120
Montauk is a small town on the eastern tip of Long Island in the USA and is known through the story of the same name by Max Frisch. With a little luck, the village will become even more famous through the fragrance series "Une Nuit à Montauk" by the manufacturer "Une Nuit Nomade". But there is probably the wish of the father of the thought.
Until now, the fragrances of Une Nuit Nomade have received little attention here on Parfumo and have rarely been appreciated in detail. The entire Montauk series still presents itself without comment, and the other fragrances of the brand are not exactly crowded by elites either.
I personally like almost all fragrances and I am now taking the opportunity to do some advertising for testing this exciting brand. All of them are easily available via the homepage; above all, there are test material (two sets) at acceptable prices, which should be consulted urgently before making a blind purchase. The fragrances are idiosyncratic, yet completely uncomplicated to wear, so they do not belong to any kind of avant-garde. This is about wearability on the one hand, but also about distinctiveness on the other hand.
All three fragrances feature two common scent components (Rose America: rose and carnation / Memory Motel: patchouli and carnation / Bohemian Soul, the latest fragrance: frankincense and wood), but they also set new accents by initially not taking the combination for granted (e.g. rose and carnation in a striking form: rather rare) and by adding notes that are rather surprising in this context.
Memory Motel (a melancholic name that immediately brings to mind the Gurney's Inn hotel from Max Frisch's tale Montauk) is as engaging (patchouli) as it is bulky (sweet tobacco): The fresh bergamot prelude contrasts beautifully with the patchouli and the clove and a sweet tobacco note are easily perceived. So the fragrance doesn't come across as smooth, but it's not complicated to wear either, because after a while on the skin or on textile (the fragrance comes across very well in both variants) you think: "Sure, that actually goes together quite naturally For me, this is the ideal case of a fragrance that breaks new ground: combining the unusual in a natural way! The allure of the avant-garde or not: how wonderful it can be when a fragrance is exciting and yet engaging. The appeal of harmony or not: How beautiful can it be when a fragrance offers friction surfaces and you have the feeling of wearing something really new
Memory Motel is not a big deal. I'll give you that. But it is a successful attempt to connect new paths with old coordinates and ultimately lead to a familiar place: Memory Motel.
