Reviews of Legend Night

Welp, this Montblanc is shooting blanks fellas. The original Legend (2011) was a nice 90's throwback fougère that begat a series of flankers starting with the more modern Legend Intense (2013), then Legend Spirit (2016), with the latter nudging the formula closer to the 2010's standard with the inclusion of ambroxan in the mix. Legend Night (2017) goes full-on spicy ambroxan bomb mode, just like Valentno Uomo (2014), Emporio Armani's Stronger With You (2017) and the following year's Azzaro Wanted by Night (2018), but is totally unbalanced and goes too far in the direction of sheer power. There has been something of a loudness war with these ambroxan-led nightclub masculines, and with the addition of akigalawood to the formula with Legend Night, you can rest assured that nobody is getting any rest while you wear this scent. I can understand the intention here from perfumers Antoine Maisondieu and Olivier Pescheux, who would later go on to be a part of composing Montblanc Explorer (2019) as well, but there is just too much blunt force here.

The opening of Montblanc Legend Night is pretty loud with bergamot, mint, cardamom, sage, and that ambroxan blast coming out of the nozzle from the very start. The mint and cardamom exist at opposite ends of the olfactive spectrum for me, and fight for attention, while the bergamot brings the opening citric sharpness and sage adds a familiar masculine element. Legend Night also fancies itself a classic men's fragrance with a display of sweet lavender in the heart, but it just turns cloying with the addition of apple and balsam fir, warmed up by a cedar note which compounds with the cardamom top. The dizzying heat and richness here reaches a crescendo with amxbroxan being joined by both norlimbanol "woods", the Givaudan Akigalawood captive, white patchouli, and musk, meaning this just beats you over the head with a musky denatured patch/woodyamber sledgehammer once the scent settles in after an hour. The only saving grace is a hint of violet somewhere near the skin scent level, but it's not worth wading through the quagmire of loudness to reach it. Sillage is not super intense and longevity is average, but just the composition itself forms a huge molasses of everything "dudebros" want in a 2010's night time party juice and I just can't hang with it.

If making waves is your only real reason for wearing a fragrance, then I suppose Montblanc Legend Night is your choice of sauce, but to me it is just like an over-amped version of Montblanc Legend Spirit, which itself wasn't really to my liking because I didn't like the original Legend formula being dried out and spiked with ambroxan, since the 90's/2000's evernyl synth-fougère "expensive Axe spray" vibe of the original Legend was part of its charm. That charm was hampered in Legend Spirit, and decimated completely here in Legend Night, so I can't find any favor whatsoever with this. If you want a spicy "ambroxan bomb" nightclub scent, I suggest searching around, because with so many redundant entries in this genre, there is a lot of representation of the ideas found here just done a lot better than Legend Night. As always, you don't have to take my word for it, and please test away before making any decisions on your own, but regardless if you like it or not, you'll agree that there is nothing subtle about this scent at all, and sophistication is a foreign concept as well. Thumbs down for me.

Sort of generic fragrance that reminds me of 1 Million. Can be pretty cloying if you go heavy on the trigger. 6.5/10

A nice opening, but quickly sheds its complexity to reveal a big, bellowing chemical base that covers all the modern day cologne cliches that are targeted at young men looking for an upgrade from all the spray deodorants they used in high school.

TAKE IT FROM ME:

Smells OK but is very weak.
Last only an hour and does NOT project.

Americans need to boycott all these colognes until they become stronger again.

All these new colognes are "watered down" intentionally so we can run out quickly and have to keep buying them.

You'll have to spray 25 sprays on you in order for someone else to notice

Decent EdP version of the Legend series of scents from Mont Blanc.

The scent starts out with a dark, boozy quality, heavy on spices and dense fruits. It has a reserved, deep vibe that eclipses the intensity of the other Legend scents.

Over time, it remains laid back and close to skin, remaining boozy and also sitting upon a heavy tobacco-like fruity foundation. Vanilla is not bright but instead thick in nature, as is the vetiver. Apple is discernible as a subtle, subdued fixture in the mix.

Definitely a night time fragrance, suited for either formal or informal occasions esp. in cooler weather.

Very nice, but nothing that hasn't already been done 10 times. Reminiscent of La Nuit, Varvatos Vintage, Noir de Noir, Bvlgari Man Black, Jubilation 25.. you get the idea.

Now how does it smell. A berry, peppery, creamy, sweet, very sweet, almost cloying scent. Projection starts off big, but quickly dwindles down.

The guy who compares it to Memoire d’homme, I gotta agree, but only about half way, as this one is much much much sweeter.

If you like sweet frags like I do, you will enjoy this. I would wait till it finds its way to Fragnet and Ebay first though, before spending retail.
