Montblanc has done it again: Legend, is a fragrance for men that can last the whole day and still do 100 push ups. (Metaphorically, of course.)
Before acquiring a bottle, I had tried out a sample, which I’d left in my wallet for two weeks. After one week it still had a wonderful scent … after two weeks I was on a mission to get a bottle; and I was not disappointed.
Apart from loving the Legend fragrance itself, this super-sleek bottle looks great on my desk. Obviously, what with it being Montblanc and all, it is classy and stylish. The packaging is both minimalistic and luxurious. The heavy and slightly curved bottle, made of glass and metal, is inspired by Montblanc’s famous Meisterstück pen design.
Olivier Pescheux, the perfumer behind this fresh fougere creation, wanted to make the fragrance filled with contrasts, combining notes that evoke strength and tenderness, tradition and modernity. The composition opens with fresh aromatic tones of bergamot, lavender, pineapple leaf and exotic verbena. The heart emphasises oak moss note merged with geranium, coumarin, apple, rose, and Pomarosa. The base notes contain sandalwood, tonka and evernyl.
Montblanc Legend will be available in all major stores.
