Montblanc’s Legend Night
The Montblanc Legend is back, but this time he’s out for a night cap. A richer, more mysterious incarnation of the original, this one is for the bad boys. Housed in a bottle akin to a hip flask, dressed in cognac hues that fade to black, Montblanc Legend Night is an after-dark scent, a scent you might find sipping whiskeys in the back of the club.
English model Simon Clark embodies the Montblanc man once again. Their playful advert shows the Montblanc mans personality; captivating, coquettish and slick. Watch the dashing man himself, as he looks you in the eye.
Top notes: cardamom, clary sage, peppermint, bergamot
Heart notes: cedar wood, violet, lavender
Base notes: vetiver, patchouli, musk, black vanilla
Inspired by the original Montblanc Legend scent, the perfumer, Antoine Maisondieu wanted to ‘echo the structured confident nature of the perfume, but to bring something more sensual to the scent. Warmer and darker but that still portrayed the kind of masculine elegance you have with Montblanc‘.
For those of you acquainted with the original Legend (and Legend Spirit) you’ll recognise some of its DNA here; that same fresh bite of bergamot at the top, the same aromatic lavender that pulls you in. But this time it delves into deeper and darker territory, with moreish black vanilla and musks mingling to create this slightly sweet, soft scent that just screams ‘come closer’. Undertones of vetiver, patchouli and Akigalawood promise a magnetic woodiness. Moreish, cosy and elegant, Montblanc Legend Night is a scent to nuzzle into on any dark night.
