    Default Mont Blanc Presence

    I use to love this old jem but haven't thought of it since 2002. After checking in to it, the revamped the bottle which I think looks better than the old snow globe that was designed to fit in the palm of your hand. The smell was of green apple, amber, and musk. It was quite distinctive. The only offer a 50 ml and a 75 ml in the range. They discontinued the deodorant and other products. Would I like it today? I'm afraid to gamble on it. What are your thoughts?

    I too have been re-evaluating it. Actually, I've been thinking about all my Mont Blanc frags. Like most MB frags, Presence is a nice, solid casual frag that isn't going to wow anybody, but it has its moments. Think I'll keep it but won't replace it.

    Cool version is really bad. It's the only frag I've ever thrown away. I could not give this crap away.

    this was my first frag ever, I stopped wearing it for a while after my lutens phase when I decided I was "too good for it" but ive actually reached for it a few times in the past month. After 5 years the juice is still good! smells decent... if you can grab a deal why not?

    Well, it is not that bad for me, but boring. It has been done a million times before LOL. Presence is a nice spicy frag, I couldn't stop sniffing my wrist when I had it on.

    I have Presence about two years in my wardrobe. To be perfectly frank, it isn't a great ("Oh, my God, how good you smell!!!!!!" kind of) scent. It is... good... and a pretty safe choice (sometimes too safe, for my taste).
    The old bottle wasn't so... practical, but it was more original, that's for sure. In any case, I like Presence more than other Mont Blanc's scents, Individuel and Starwalker.

    Well, just spoke to Mont Blanc and they've discontinued this. They still have a few bottles left. Better stock up. I personally feel this is their best. On par with Bond Bleeker Street and perhaps better.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Lucky then that I have a bottle of this.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    It's nothing to be afraid of as it's definitely pleasant. You might run into some issues though by finding it kind of boring or 'been there done that,' which was sort of my reaction to it. I owned a bottle but sold it not long after I got it. It vaguely reminded me of Le Male, a sort of powdery-spicy clean type of designer. Nice, but nothing spectacular.

    Edit: wow, I just noticed this was from 2008. Lol
