It’s well known that writing instruments and calligraphy lie at the heart of Montblanc’s DNA, therefore its no surprise these elements were a source of inspiration for the design of a new limited edition fragrance called Montblanc Legend Calligraphy.
For the special edition, the Montblanc label chose to decorate the bottle of its iconic men’s fragrance with a cursive English-style typography, drawn in white letters on a dark background. The design of this collector’s bottle features three bands, a signature motif important to the luxury brand.
Resembling a signature as if handwritten, the word “Montblanc” in round and arabesque letters is drawn onto the bottle, however on the inside, the original fragrance remains unchanged.
Created by Olivier Pescheux, master perfumer of scents like Lanvin Arpège Pour Homme, 1 Million by Paco Rabanne and Balmain Homme, the fragrance opens on notes of bergamot, exotic verbena, lavender and pineapple leaves associated with jasmine accords, white cedar and rose. The base combines oakmoss notes, sandalwood and tonka seed.
Montblanc Legend Calligraphy is available starting this month in limited edition in perfumeries. Price: €73 (approx. £53) for 100 ml.
