Let’s face it, we’ve all daydreamed about quitting our jobs one day and traveling the globe—just you, your essential gear, and the journey of a lifetime taking in the sights, sounds, and smells of exotic destinations around the world you always wanted to visit. However, life gets in the way and budgeting for an epic adventure can seem impossible. If your Plan B attempt to be casted on The Amazing Race never panned out, Montblanc might have the next best thing. No, it’s not free airline miles, but it is a way to add that thrill of adventure to your everyday life—it’s the new Montblanc Explorer fragrance.
The connection between exploration and Montblanc can been seen across the brand’s offerings with exquisite writing instruments to jot down notes of exciting new experiences, high-quality leather goods perfect for first-class travel, and elegant timepieces for the sophisticated style in any time zone. Unlike Montblanc’s high-priced goods, the Explorer fragrance is available for a reasonable price that allows every man to tap into his sense of adventure and smell incredible wherever life takes him.
To create this exhilarating scent, Montblanc enlisted three Givaudan perfumers to each focus on an individual ingredient from one part of the world that make up this fragrance. Bergamot from Italy, vetiver from Haiti, and patchouli from Indonesia create this woody aromatic scent that begins with a fresh citrusy burst of excitement, and settles into a warm intoxicating musky aroma. In a sense, the fragrance takes you on a world tour with just one spritz. To add to the appeal of the Montblanc Explorer, it comes in an attractive glass bottle wrapped in the iconic Saffiano motif that merits a place on any dapper man’s bathroom shelf.
The Explorer might not be able to physically transport you around the world, but it might be just the ticket to make every day feel like a thrilling adventure.
