Mont Blanc Legend – LEGEND simultaneously expresses strength and softness; clarity and mystery. This very masculine yet subtle perfume, created by Olivier Pescheux, belongs to the fougere fragrance family. It firmly makes its presence felt without ever becoming ostentatious.
The first notes are lightly aromatic: Lavender, essential in the fougere construction, is clearly recognisable. Bergamot from Calabria and Litsea Cubeba, or “exotic verbena”, further enhance the extreme freshness of this lively opening.
The middle notes vibrate intensely: Evernyl, a molecule very reminiscent of oakmoss, deploys its warm sensuality and depth. A blend of sensuality and harmony complete the fragrance. No fougere could ever be without Coumarin, the inimitable “half-hay, half-biscuit” note that is the main constituent of the Tonka Bean.
Combined with a touch of Sandalwood, the final impression is one of a very irresistible yet personal adventure. Montblanc LEGEND is available nationwide from Harrods, selected departments stores and Montblanc boutiques. Montblanc LEGEND EdT 30ml £26.00 / 50ml £39.00/ 100ml £59.00.
