In 2011, the luxury brand embarked on a new chapter in its history, when it launched the Legend fragrance. The enviable reputation Montblanc Legend has gained is thanks to its signature scent and unique visual campaign captured by legendary photographic genius, Peter Lindbergh.
The latest milestone in the olfactory Legend journey is this new timeless fragrance, Montblanc Legend Night. This scent was created by dynamic fragrance duo, Antoine Maisondieu and Olivier Pescheux, who’s past successes include Higher by Christian Dior, Paul Smith Extreme, Gucci Rush for Men, Armani Code and Burberry Brit, so yeah quite the heritage.
The fragrance is a magnetic woody aroma, ultra-masculine in its tone, with aromatic notes of clary sage and peppermint, enhanced with cool spices (cardamom) and sparkling bergamot. The middle notes of cedar wood blend well with the floral lavender tones, a classic in men’s fragrances, and slightly powdered violet. Finally, “In the base notes, we wanted a strong and memorable signature, full of contrasts,” explain the two noses. “On one side some dense and vibrant woods with a duo of Vetiver and Patchouli Wood, and on the other, the envelopinug depth of Musk and velvety black Vanilla.”
