View Full Version : Mont Blanc Cologne
09-18-2006, 10:32 PM
Is it just me, or is this a surprising combination? I'd have never ventured to guess they made cologne, well er anything other than High End Pens.
I did pick up a bottle of their Starwalker on the cheap, but it seems to be more of a younger scent, where I'm getting to the edge of being able to wear something like this. It's pretty fresh, I detect a little citrus, more of a "blue" scent IMO. I don't know if I'd put it as a full priced purchase, but at TJ Maxx it was hard to pass up.
Anyone have any other experience with their scents?

I wish companies like Mont Blanc would stick to making what they're famous for. I have four of their pens and a briefcase but I wouldn't consider their cologne.
I somewhat agree--Mont Blanc pens have suffered since they drifted--their newer designs are flawed. Still--at least they have something new to offer and I will be using my Star Walker pens today. The gripe that I really have with MontBlanc now is how overpriced they have become.
For those who want a pur pen company may I suggest an Aurora product or Pelikan. Lamy also makes some great pens relatively inexpensively.
That being said some companies have made great transitions like Vicotinox--great watches and luggage--not bad for a knife maker.

Rob, try their other cologne called Presence. It's for an older crowd.

Yeah, they make cologne, and killer wrist watches...

Mont Blanc Presence is one of my favorite scents. I wear it during cooler weather because to me it's Christmas-y. Kind of piney or foresty with some spice to it. I'm talking specifically of Presence; I got a sample of Presence Cool and didn't like it at all.

Yeah, I'm surprised at some of the manufacturers that I've discovered through Basenotes... My favorite is that Givenchy produced a Hello Kitty one, and also that CK did a Kermit the Frog Cologne.
I've been really enjoying the Creed Original Santal and the Creed Himalaya at the moment. I've also found that I really like that Baldessarini Concentrate by Hugo Boss.
