Today in Gear: A Timeless Fragrance from Montblanc, Rare Samples from Nike on eBay & More


December 11, 2019 Briefings By

Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com


Charisma is a trait that simply can’t be taught, and those who have it can’t help but radiate it. If that confidence and authenticity could be bottled, we think it would smell just like Montblanc’s Legend fragrance. Developed by perfumer Olivier Pescheux, the top notes are comprised of bergamot, lavender and pineapple leaves, while the heart notes contain jasmine, white cedar and pomarose. The fragrance’s foundation is built from oak moss, sandalwood, tonka beans and dry amber to give it a deep and fresh essence. The fragrance is bottled in an elegant yet masculine curved rectangular bottle, and the cap is engraved with the Montblanc star – a seal of authenticity from the timeless brand. While we can’t say that the scent is bottled charisma, we can say that it projects a sense of confidence.
