Montblanc Legend Night


MONTBLANC MONTBLANC LEGEND NIGHT

We are partnering with Montblanc Legend Night for an incredible event on the 26th of September. It’s going to be a night of luxury and elegance.

Below is what Montblanc has to say about the new fragrance. The one thing that I absolutely love is the focus on simplistic elegance and a magnetic presence. It really resonates with what BetterMan is all about.

To celebrate the launch of this incredible fragrance we are giving away one Montblanc fragrance. All you have to do is read about the fragrance in the piece below and tell me in the comments section what resonates with you the most. Random draw to select the winner will happen on the 14th of September.

The Montblanc legacy

For over 100 years, Montblanc has designed long lasting and essential accessories, writing instruments, watches and leather goods. Its products are timeless: a Meisterstück is still an eternal pledge, as Montblanc Augmented Paper is a companion on the path towards the future.

In 2011, a new chapter opened in the history of the Maison, when it launched the Legend fragrance. Montblanc Legend has won its reputation thanks to its signature scent and unique visual captured by Peter Lindbergh. The famous photographer depicts a Montblanc man who is as reassuring just as he is inspiring.

In 2015, this timeless masculine saga continued with Montblanc Legend Spirit, a fresh and bold version of the fragrance.

Echoing this record of excellence, the third olfactory chapter now reveals an equally charismatic, but more mysterious side to the extraordinary gentleman. This new timeless fragrance emphasizes the nocturnal aspect of his personality. Its name is Montblanc Legend Night.

The legend continues…

This new story features the same man, in a more intimate setting. It is early evening and he has just joined his friends in his favourite club; an inner circle of English gentlemen in London, or a charity gala in Hong Kong. They enjoy a great evening together over drinks and lively debate. The Montblanc man and those who are close to him always see their projects to completion.

In the midst of the crowd, his minimalist elegance is irresistibly appealing. His magnetic presence speaks for itself. His words matter, his eyes fascinate.

Montblanc Legend Night, a hauntingly captivating dimension.

Fragrance

Montblanc Legend Night paints a top-flight olfactory picture with remarkable contrasts of light and shadow.

Designed by the talented duo Antoine Maisondieu and Olivier Pescheux who set out to reveal “the charisma of the wearer”, this juice is a magnetic woody fragrance, ultra-masculine yet free from aggression.

Mysterious. And reassuring. The Eau de Parfum brings out the elegance and aura of the Legend Night man.

The aromatic notes of clary sage and peppermint, enhanced with cool spices (cardamom) and sparkling bergamot, set the fragrance’s fresh and lively tone. The opening is bright, like the natural radiance of our man’s aura.

The middle notes immediately counterbalance this first impression of refreshing coolness with their warm elegance. The precious scents of cedar wood blend well with the floral lavender tones, a classic in men’s fragrances, and slightly powdered violet.

“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 enveloping depth of Musk and velvety black Vanilla.”

The signature counter-accord brings out the distinctive character of the Montblanc man through light and shade.

Noble material

The aesthetics of the Montblanc Legend Night bottle break with the duality of the house’s black and white codes, clearing the path for an amber colour that is reminiscent of wood, the ultimate authentic material or a fiery liquor.

Embossed with relief on the upper part of the bottle and on its stopper, the emblem inspired by the snow-capped Mont Blanc and the symbol of the highest standards of quality and perfection is engraved in the black metal.

The box, in the same cognac tones, is reminiscent of an inlaid keepsake box where our man stores his treasured possessions. Its deep metallic reflections capture the light. The name appears in elegant gold calligraphy.

A friendly gent

The English model Simon Clark embodies the Montblanc man yet again. Photographed by John Balsom, who has a gift for revealing a personality, he looks right into the lens for the very first time. The eye-to-eye contact, made in natural light, presents Simon Clark just as he is. His innate virility sets the scene ablaze. He is instantly captivating. Nothing will disturb this dialogue… until morning comes.

    The Montblanc man…a man who is as reassuring just as he is inspiring…those who are close to him always see their projects to completion…his magnetic presence speaks for itself…his words matter…

  6. Echoing this record of excellence, the third olfactory chapter now reveals an equally charismatic, but more mysterious side to the extraordinary gentleman. … what my idea is of what Betterman does and did for me..improving the current me to be a better me

  7. What appeal to me about the new fragrance, is the bottle. So much thought have gone into making it so appealing. Does the two-tone not remind you of what men face every day… the duality of life. Then also the brand, that compliments that.. bringing value and purpose. Well done Erik and Team for a good product to compliment BetterMan.

  8. Montblanc have also used the accretion model here, small steady, increments… Been manufacturing pens since 1906 and only looked at diversifying product range in 2011 when they created a fragrance.

    This sounds like an Apex event to me:

    “They enjoy a great evening together over drinks and lively debate. The Montblanc man and those who are close to him always see their projects to completion.”

  9. True style and elegance lies in it’s simplicity. The way the product is packaged, the advert and even what the gent is wearing all signify this to me. When you have you own style and are confident in it and yourself there is no need to try too hard to be who you are – you just are.

  10. All fragrances that connect with me involve the freshness and simplicity of a quality aroma: simplistic yet elegant, manly yet magnetic. Montblanc captivates me by portraying the ‘natural radiance of our man’s aura’.

  11. “always see there projects to completion” This resonates with me in a sense to not give up, but to push through with perseverance and finish what you started. Most of the time this takes real character and courage
    .

  12. “The Montblanc man and those who are close to him always see their projects to completion.”
    That resonates with me because I always fight to finish all my projects and I try to associate my self with friends who don’t quit.

  13. I am intrigued with trying to create a mental image in my mind’s nose that will accurately capture the real scent of this Eau De Parfum. The herbal, aromatic, woody and grassy elements described could, if as well combined as they are described, finally produce the sophisticated, masculine fragrance I have been looking for.

  14. The aesthetics of the Montblanc Legend Night bottle break with the duality of the house’s black and white codes, clearing the path for an amber colour that is reminiscent of wood, the ultimate authentic material or a fiery liquor

  15. This fragrance’s ability to give a man certain level of aura is the one resonating factor with.
    The fact that the famous photographer, Peter Lindbergh : “…depicts a Montblanc man who is as reassuring just as he is inspiring…” separates this fragrance from the rest.

    Whether you are in “..an inner circle of English gentlemen in London, or a charity gala in Hong Kong”, or even a Betterman event in the Johannesburg, the fragrance’s simplistic elegance and a magnetic presence will definitely stand out with anyone within a Montblanc inspired man

  16. The Montblanc man.. who is as reassuring as he is inspiring! And the fact that they have been around for 100 years and are still able to produce the same quality year after year without compromising their value set. Part of the values of being a BetterMan… Accretion without compromising your own values to add value to others!

  17. Am a dedicated user of the Mont Blanc Black product. The “Night” fragrance will be just as awesome. Am very keen to try it out as I always get great comments when wearing Mont Blanc.

  18. One of the stand-out aspects is it’s commitment to embody excellence, to embrace elegance whilst keeping a magnificent minimalist manner about it.

  19. The descriptive contrasts have won me over. “Mysterious. And reassuring……ultra masculine yet free from aggression”. The amber and black colours also add to this mystery of the Mont Blanc Legend Night. Sounds like the Legend Night is insipring as much as the lengendary Mont Blanc is reassuring.

  20. Werner Froneman on

    The fact that it sets out to reveal “the charisma of the wearer”, then speaking to the very nature of a legend & it’s magnetic presence.
    It’s a desired fragrance, desired Brand…a desired BetterMan

  21. I like that it’s established from name that has always stood for sophistication and how it would appeal to the Alpha male or at times the Lone wolf, brilliant description and wording on how this fragrance would complement the person who would be wearing it and love the design…simplistic yet elegant.

  22. Found a lump under my armpit. Initially it was small. The pain was not felt. Now rub and growing. My friends like do not. The other day found out that it can be serious malaise. But I think, just fatty lump. Found understandable information about this lump. Now I’m not afraid of bad diagnosis. Everything is clear and detail is written down to the smallest detail.
    Many have problems with the armpits. There are a lot of bacteria. Later arise balls. They can be painful, but not always. It is better to know in advance about this problem. In this case there will be no fear of horror. Good, that now I understand this.
