As the holidays are coming up, I thought I would tell you one of my favorite gift ideas- fragrance! It’s a perfect gift and honestly most people who aren’t insane like I am only have a couple fragrances that they rotate through the year. They probably need a new bottle about once a year, so it makes a perfect holiday gift. My husband’s favorite cologne EVER is Mont Blanc Legend, which I’ve actually written about before, but today I wanted to tell you a little more!
Mont Blanc Legend is the perfect casual fragrance for men. The notes include bergamot, pineapple leaf, sandalwood, and tonka bean. This is one of most amazing fragrances I’ve ever smelled for men. I actually picked this one out for my husband at the store about a year ago or so because I thought the scent was so intoxicating I knew I wanted to smell it on him all the time.
According to FragranceNet.com, Mont Blanc Legend is “A fresh fougére with top notes that are lively, bright, and clean, the scent opens to magnetic heart notes with a unique woody-floral tone and offers a sensual dry down with an unforgettable signature of tonka beans and sandalwood.”
If you’re gifting this, who would it be perfect for? I think this would be a perfect scent to gift to a husband, boyfriend, or brother. It’s fresh and clean, but doesn’t smell soapy at all like a lot of fragrances for men. It’s not musky or overpowering. It’s really manly, and to me smells sophisticated enough that you could wear it to a job interview in a business suit or you could wear it when you dress down and go out for wings with your buddies. Either way, I think the scent is really seductive and I’m not lying when I say it’s the best fragrance out there! I have a few other men’s fragrances I will be reviewing between now and the holidays, but this is my ultimate favorite.
When I bought my bottle of this, I got sucked into a display at Macy’s but I’m realizing now that I shouldn’t spent so much. A 3.4 oz bottle of this at Macy’s retails for $82, whereas Fragrancenet.com has the same size bottle for only $41.99. I think it’s a little crazy to buy something for twice the price, so I’ll be sticking with Fragrancenet.com. I also notice that they have a coupon for 25% off if you give them your email, which would bring the price down to $31.49. Come to think of it, I’ve placed an order with them before, and I want to say that’s an ongoing coupon. It’s definitely worth looking into! They also do free shipping over $50 and you can even pay with PayPal!
This scent is so, so, SO good and if I haven’t convinced you already to buy it for your favorite guy for Christmas, they also have a gift set going right now where you can get the Eau De Toilette Spray 3.3 oz, Aftershave Balm 3.3 oz, and All Over Shower Gel 3.3oz for $50.99 (price before any potential coupons). What a steal!
