The prestige of the Maison Montblanc
Montblanc is a name that has sounded like a concentrate of expertise and quality since its creation in 1906 in Hamburg. The brand alone combines countless qualities such as inspiration, virtuosity and elegance. Also, if this materializes through one of his most famous writing tools, the Meisterstück pen, it can also be felt in each of his scents. What is more, despite its now ancestral history, the Montblanc house has evolved with the times, gradually rising to the highest peak of excellence. Montblanc has become an icon of refinement known across the entire planet. If writing was her first way of expressing herself, perfume is part of the continuity of her legendary history.

He is in no way provoking and appears soberly with sensuality. He much prefers elegance to arrogance and addresses himself to a serene, determined man of natural class.
The timeless freshness of Legend
It was the perfumer Olivier Pescheux who had the difficult task of symbolizing the image of the Montblanc house in the form of a perfume. The smell of Legend begins with a strong and fiery freshness associated with an aromatic touch. Lavender, a major ingredient in men’s perfumery, thus touches the liveliness of bergamot. Likewise, Litsea cubeba, an exotic variety of verbena, brings here its aromatic facet. Then, as if that were not enough to energize our daily lives, the liveliness of Legend is further increased by the presence of evernyl, a synthetic molecule reproducing the scent of oak moss, at the same time vegetal, sensual and deep. The geranium then brings the elegance of a rose while adding a hint of spices. This modernizes the together while giving it more character. Finally, it all ends with a smooth and comfortable base resulting from the association of tonka bean and sandalwood. Everything is contained in a bottle which is reminiscent of the aesthetics of Montblanc pens. It has a timeless shape and the emblematic codes of the brand. Heavy and soft to the touch, it recalls the sensation one has when holding a Montblanc writing object. Dressed in a deep black contrasting with a metal fret, the set is topped with a silver stopper embossing Montblanc’s iconic six-pointed star.
