Today’s Fragrance Friday goes out to all the stylish men and dapper dad’s out there!
With Father’s two sleeps away, if you still haven’t managed to find THAT perfect gift, then this new, 2014 Montblanc Legend Special Edition is just the thing!
Created by perfumer Olivier Pescheux, Legend Special Edition 2014 is a new take on the original.
I haven’t smelt the original. In fact, this is the first time that I’ve ever smelt a fragrance by Montblanc, and although I don’t have anything to go on, I really like this scent.
It’s classic, it’s manly and it’s a fragrance with status.
For the man that has it all, dad would definitely appreciate a touch of class!
Overall the scent is magnetic, sophisticated and full of attitude.
The top notes of Lime Peru, Spearmint, Bergamote and Lavender open with a bitter, yet refreshing bite – a great profile for a man’s fragrance, that give this scent an instant, energetic and appealing effect.
The heart notes add magnetism to this fragrance! With Violet Leaves, crispy Green Apple, Cardamom and an exclusive raw material, Pomarose which adds touch of fruitiness.
Once they settle, the fragrance finishes with woody-ambery base notes of Amrbofix, White Cedar wood, Evernyl (oak moss) and Sandalwood.
The bottle is elegant, heavy, classy and unfussy. The bottle fades to a gradient blue, with the signature Montblanc star embossed on the collar.
The packaging is sleek and graphic and although its not overly sporty, it has a definite edge to appeal to the man who thrives on living life in the fast lane.
