Montblanc has always been a brand for those who refuse to stand still. Just look at its original fountain pen – created for travellers, it was designed never to leak and never to let you down.
Montblanc has channelled this same adventurous spirit into Montblanc EXPLORER – a fragrance for people who prefer to push the limits – whether that’s climbing summits, challenging conventions or exploring the globe.
EXPLORER’s ingredients literally embody this mindset: you’ll find bergamot from Italy, vetiver from Haiti, and patchouli from Indonesia, to name just three.
Montblanc EXPLORER invites you on a fantastic journey, presenting the rarest ingredients and manufacturing methods in a fragrance that combines craftsmanship with the latest technology.
Its top note bursts with this effusive Italian bergamot, revealing the bright, energetic and optimistic side of the fragrance’s heart. This particular bergamot is OrPur® – the label awarded only to the finest natural raw materials – and it explodes with floral, green, and intensely fresh notes inducing a sudden desire to travel to warmer climes.
This bergamot is paired with masculine notes of French OrPur® clary sage and spicy OrPur® pink pepper to initiate a dialogue full of character.
The heart note of EXPLORER’s journey takes us to the most remote part of Haiti: in the extreme south-west of the island, in the region of Les Cayes, where the most refined vetiver is organically and ethically produced.
Celebrated by perfumers all over the world, Haiti's vetiver oil is comparable to no other, thanks to its smoky hues and its slight overtone evoking hazelnut.
Associated with leather – reminiscent of an adventurer's well-worn jacket – it evokes a unique persona, the effortless elegance of someone who always aims for the top.
A final stopover takes us to Indonesia, east of Borneo, in the heart of the rainforest to discover a new type of patchouli of unparalleled quality.
Montblanc EXPLORER is created around this new and bewitching woody structure – it’s sharp, modern and naturally elegant; perfect attributes for a fragrance – and for any man.
MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE
The Montblanc EXPLORER bottle itself echoes the earth’s two hemispheres, recalling the multiple destinations explored during this olfactory expedition.
Made of thick glass, its spherical shape evokes timeless solidity. At the bottom, like a mythical treasure, lies Montblanc’s emblem, the iconic star representing the six glaciers of the highest mountain in Europe.
With its elongated shape specially designed for travelling, the 30ml bottle – the travellers’ favourite – stands out in the collection.
The ‘gun barrel’ colour, modern design and weight of the cap evoke the safety nut of beautiful vintage cars.
And naturally, it’s engraved with the iconic Montblanc star.
