About Legend by Montblanc
Designed by Oliver Pescheux, this cologne was created to be clean, fresh, and sensual. The men who wear Legend according to Montblanc.com, was designed for a man with an “independent spirit that defies convention.” I don’t know about you, but those words don’t mean a whole lot to me.
Montblanc is a company that was founded over a hundred years ago in 1906 by Alfred Nehemias and August Ebertstein. This company started in Germany in one of the more popular cities of Hamburg and they made pens. Now we know Montblanc as the producers of one of the most popular colognes on the market today.
What type of man wears Mont Blanc Cologne? A man that knows who he is and doesn’t need to find himself on journeys of self-discovery. A man that is comfortable in his own skin and doesn’t need to pretend to be someone he is not. Somebody confident that stands tall, and walks proud. Wears elegance like a cloak and poise is his weapon of choice. Cool under duress and never underestimated. Women are never immune to such charms and succumb like a moth to a flame.
Legend Cologne is a sophisticated blend with masculine, enigmatic, and sensual undertones. The genius perfumer behind this elixir is a man named Olivier Pescheux whose nose recognised a legendary scent when he smelt it and immediately bottled up the formula. Mont Blanc Legend became its name and it was revealed to the masses in 2011. The composition is a sneaky blended mixture of aromatic tones with fruity notes and heated potency.

What does it smell like?
If you were to read the discussions on various sites of what this cologne smells like, you will find that most people find it smells EXACTLY like Abercrombie & Fitch’s Fierce cologne. In my opinion, it smells similar but not identical. I find that Legend smells a little more “musky” and gives a mature scent to it.
Legend by Montblanc is one of the top 25 most popular colognes today and in 2015, made the list of the top colognes. Because of it’s popularity, you most likely will know someone that either wears it, or Abercrombie’s Fierce so you can get an idea of how it smells.
The notes people say they smell when trying a squirt are;
Who should purchase Legend by Montblanc?
Age Group: 30+
Despite smelling similar to a cologne that was created for teenagers, Legend has a mature scent to it that makes it less appealing to anyone in high school and college age. This cologne should be worn by grown men.
Season: All-year round
Legend is safe to wear all year round. If I had to absolutely pick a season for it, I would say late fall -> early spring.
Time of day: Anytime
Feel free to wear it Legend during the day when you are at work or school, or at night when you are out with your friends. Montblanc created a versatile cologne that you can wear anytime, anywhere.
The best way to describe this scent journey is elaborate in a way you can best understand. A mature man knows the art of love-making; it is a journey of the senses and it is a progressive voyage of discovery. The first step wets your appetite with an alluringly delightful taste of what is to come then moves into a sweetly provocative dance of zest and eventually the fiery explosive burst of heavenly surrender to utter satisfaction.
This is a description of your Legend Cologne scent journey.
- Alluring top notes filled with aromatic promise
- Provocative middle notes tango with zesty tanginess
- Fiery base notes that merge with earthy notes of satisfaction
The top notes are bergamot, lavender, pineapple leaf and exotic verbena that deliver the promising aroma of freshness. The middle notes are akmoss -evernyl molecule blended with geranium, coumarin, apple, rose and pomarosa molecule (dried fruit) to divulge a provocative heart to the core scent. The base note is sandalwood, Tonka and evernyl that amalgamate to the fiery fusion of spicy verses woodsy, the end game scent that gets you ‘noticed’.
The Mont Blanc Cologne bottle itself screams classy elegance with a weighted glass and metal design of black mixed with metal inspired by the Meisterstück who designed a memorial pen. The bottle’s creation is a modern simplistic design of masculine with a stylish feel of complexity much like the elixir: Legend Cologne.
The Mont Blanc legend will make the confident more confident and the bold bolder. You are who you are and this sexy elixir will only enhance that exponentially. This crowd-pleaser takes you from season to season comfortably, cool to warm weather, and back again with ease.
