What Does Montblanc Presence Smell Like?

Montblanc’s Presence is a spicy amber fragrance with aromatic main accords of warm spice and cinnamon. 

This great fragrance has a pleasant, fresh spicy opening of cardamom that adds the sweetness of ginger and cinnamon. Bergamot supplements the initial scent with a touch of citrus. 

The heart notes then develop into a sweet apple that includes the earthiness of sage and the powdery florals of heliotrope. Finally, the soft tonka bean dry down mixed with amber and sandalwood lends to the sweet aspects of this EDT’s final hours. 

Musk allows for a clean sensation, and the teak has an almost floral quality that wraps the base notes up in a unique essence. 

How Long Does Montblanc Presence Last For?

This fragrance has moderate to long-lasting longevity and a medium sillage. 

As an EDT, you can expect this scent to last for up to three hours, but since this product is more durable than most, it can endure for even longer. 

You can get more out of this scent if you use it on moist skin. Spritz it on immediately after moisturizing to take advantage of this. 

Also, do not rub the spray into your skin unless you want a fainter aroma. Friction caused by massaging destroys the molecular bond and makes the odor weaker. 

When Should You Wear It?

The spicy notes in this eau de toilette make it ideal for winter. As a spice bomb with a sweet green apple note, this perfume is sensual enough to distract the senses from the harsh weather of the first and last months of the year. 

Additionally, the amber and woody scents have a strength that is more suitable for the winter. Heavier scents are best for frosty temperatures because hot weather intensifies the smell of perfume. 

Fragrance needs the heat to dissipate the molecules and release the smell, so aromas with high sillages won’t appear too intense in the cold. 

Where Should You Wear It?

This fragrance is wonderful for romantic situations. As a deep and robust aroma, this EDT helps to create a stronger emotional connection with your partner. 

Spicy colognes also help to give you more confidence which makes them ideal for a first date. 

This scent is ideal for a casual or work situation. As an EDT, the concentration is lower than other products so the essence won’t be too overpowering. 

Furthermore, the delicate scents of apple and bergamot provide a lighter aroma that comes to life in the daytime. 

Just always make sure you aren’t overdoing it on the cologne. Too much scent can be off-putting and can give other people bad reactions. 

Since this Montblanc aroma has a medium sillage, apply it lightly at first to make sure it isn’t too strong. 

Presentation and Value For Money

This fabulous fragrance comes in a glass bottle shaped like a half-moon. The top is black with a white star in the center with the brand and name written on the bottle in dull silver. 

The turquoise color makes the product look bright and reminds the buyer of the fragrance’s light aromatic aroma. 

The outside box is black with a silver band and has the brand and product name in white. 

Presence by Montblanc typically sells for between $20 and $40 for a 2.5-ounce bottle. This price makes it a relatively cheap perfume. 

The Bottom Line

Men have loved Montblanc fragrances for decades because they offer a fineness that perfume connoisseurs absolutely love. For a reasonable price, you will stand out at any event thanks to the warm spiciness of this aromatic product.
