Description

Mont Blanc Legend is a very versatile scent and that’s definitely one of its strengths. It can be worn year round and fits in, within all environments. It is attractive enough for dates, can go out for an evening, but doesn’t have that massive club beast persona.

Legend from Mont Blanc is still being used to inspire new flankers for the brand. The latest is an eau de parfum version of the famous Legend formula. I recently got a hold of a sample of Legend EDP to test it out and wanted to do another comparison post, with the original. Which of these is better? Lasts longer? Is the better buy? Legend eau de parfum starts off with a pretty strong violet leaf note, some bergamot, and leather. It’s fresh and somewhat green, with what I’m guessing is their synthetic oakmoss substitute. There’s really not much going on here, it feels pretty flat.Which is better? I’m not a huge fan of the original Legend, but I like the opening act more so than the EDP. It has way more personality. The EDP just sits there as a giant dose of violet leaf on my skin, with some additional notes lurking around, but not really standing out. Honestly, the fragrance strikes me as just fine. If you liked the original, you’ll probably like the eau de parfum, even if you don’t necessarily need a bottle for yourself.

Legend opens with a blend of pineapple, bergamot, and apple. It is clean, but doesn’t have the same type of sharpness, as it is calmed by lavender and tonka bean. It also has a dry underlying aroma from the base, that will become more prominent later on. Montblanc Legend EDP plays with three addictive fragrance families: woody, aromatic and fougere. From the very first spritz, the Eau de Parfum awakens the senses with an energising bergamot note and fresh violet leaves. The heart contains a bouquet of florals, including magnolia, geranium and heady jasmine for a touch of elegance as the scent warms into a new vibrant woody core. The Eau de Parfum finishes with a captivating trail of sensual leather and oak moss that’s reminiscent of the forest floor.Between these two? I’d rather wear the EDT. Again, I’m not even much of a fan of Legend, but it at least has some more personality. The EDP is closer to A&F Fierce or Egoiste Platinum, than is the EDT, but isn’t as good as either of those fragrances. Legend EDP is about the same. The violet leaf and leather doesn’t really change when it can be worn compared to the EDT version. The leather isn’t that intense and the violet leaf works pretty much year round.

Master perfumer Oliver Pescheux was inspired by how the Montblanc ‘Legend’ lives his life with courage, feelings and conviction. The scent makes its mark upon Montblanc’s hundred-year history, asserting a new kind of masculinity. Legend Eau de Parfum invites all men to challenge themselves and discover what kind of legend they are, projecting a sense of purpose, charisma and authenticity through the fragrance. Exceptional! Montblanc Legend EDP still lingered on my skin after nine to ten hours. What’s Special About The Bottle? I’d say that both of these are moderate. I know EDP has the higher concentration, but it doesn’t feel any stronger when I compare it to the original. The sillage is about the same at its peak. Maybe EDP goes a little longer with its strength, but that’s about it.Legend EDT gives me 5-6 hours of solid wear. During testing, I’ve gotten between 6.5-8 hours of wear from the EDP version. Neither one is going to give a marathon type of wear, but the EDP has the clear edge here.

If you’re a fan of Legend Eau de Toilette and you’re looking for an intense, bold and mysterious fragrance, you’ll love the enhanced and concentrated aroma of Montblanc Legend Eau de Parfum. Inspired by the ‘Legend man’ who is confident, authentic and courageous, the 2020 Montblanc fragrance blends traditional fan-favourite facets with contemporary notes inspired by the outdoors. There’s nothing all that new with the eau de parfum, to make it a must have versus the original. I don’t think it smells any better and the performance, isn’t that much better. I wish the leather was given more of a role versus the violet leaf. That would have given it more distinction and a bit more personality than it has. The performance is solid, just not incredible.Alcohol Denat. (Sd Alcohol 39-C), Parfum (Fragrance), Aqua (Water), Benzyl Salicylate, Citral, Citronellol, Coumarin, Limonene, Geraniol, Linalool.
