Synonymous with excellence in craftsmanship and design, Montblanc has been pushing the boundaries of innovation ever since the Maison first revolutionized the culture of writing in 1906. Ingenuity and imagination continue to be driving forces for the House today as it advances its expression of fine craftsmanship across product categories.
One of which, the famous Montblanc Legend fragrance goes red as it celebrates its 10-year anniversary and now ow, the Montblanc Legend fragrance returns in a new iteration, bolder and more determined than ever.
There is no colour more intense than red. Visually striking and always captivating. Bold and eye-catching, confidence, resilience and strong, red is also part of Montblanc’s heritage, appearing in the design of the legendary “Rouge et Noir” fountain pen, one of Montblanc’s earliest writing innovations in 1906. Endless source of inspiration, it has since become a signature Montblanc colour carried down through the years, across collections from writing instruments to leather goods, and now fragrance with the introduction of Montblanc Legend Red.
Red symbolizes so many diverging emotions and traits. It’s this ambiguity that makes the colour so fascinating, and the inspiration for a fragrance expertly crafted by perfumers Anne Flipo and Nicolas Beaulieu that captures all its complexity and masculine intensity. The red sensation starts with the juicy freshness of Blood Orange and zesty Grapefruit blended with the spicy contrast of Cardamom. The encounter between Clary Sage, Cedarwood and Juniper Berry dresses the citrussy freshness with aromatic facets, while the magnetic combination of Mahogany, Atlas Cedarwood and a touch of Tonka Bean add a creamy sensuality to Legend Red. A charismatic woody fragrance, fresh yet intense, bold yet sensitive, the olfactory experience evokes the thrill of speed and makes the heart beat a little faster. For the creation of the fragrance the Cedarwood, Clary Sage and Tonka Beans are ingredients sourced from LMR, a company that works with local producers around the world to source pure, natural and sustainable ingredients with a strict ethos of complete transparency, and supporting environmental management, sustainable development and local communities. In addition, the fragrance itself does not contain ingredients of animal origin and is formulated with naturally derived alcohol.
