Amanda spent much of her childhood in the gardens of her parent's Gascony chateau. Her father, one of the world's leading producers of Armagnac, would show Amanda around the Armagnac cellars where she developed a familiarity with the perfumes as he passionately explained how, over the years, the different aromas are born. The chateau and cellars became evocative of magical memories: the smell of wood, the nobility of raw materials, the strength of a product combining lifestyle and temperament.
Amanda created Amanda de Montal and gave birth to this range of unique and indulgent fragrances as a way of sharing her unconditional love for Gascony through an object both delicate and powerful, precious and universal. Each fragrance is reflective of her personality and experience, offering a gateway into her world. They are an homage to the rural region of Gascony, a land of raw beauty with astonishing colors and rich in natural resources that offer unforgettable smells with the gift of transporting us back in time.
