Emblem
One thing must be said for the Montblanc brand: they remain true to their line, at least as far as the aesthetics of their writing instruments and watches are concerned. And even some perfume bottles can keep up with the sophisticated design. In my opinion, the emblem is definitely one of them.

What a pity that, as is often the case in the world of fragrances, the elegance of the flacons does not always match the content. Unfortunately, the emblem also belongs there.

Even if one were to believe that Montblanc's men's line would rather establish itself in the reserved office fragrance segment than appeal to the club scene, the emblem unfortunately does not go beyond mediocrity.

For higher ambitions, this eau de toilette is simply too buff and offers nothing really exciting apart from a sweet-synthetic mixture of cardamom and tonka bean. With exactly these two ingredients, it reminds me of the colossal Dolce & Gabbana pour Homme in the original version, but despite the violet leaf and clary sage, it drifts off towards the aroma of shower gel - and I find that problematic.

I think those who are financially so liquid as to sign their cheques with Montblanc fountain pens only and read their time on Montblanc watches will want and find more sophisticated fragrances for their status. And they wouldn't even have to be more expensive!

Quickly forgettable.
I received a sample of this a few months ago, I remember liking the scent but I also remember thinking that there was nothing special about it. The grapefruit was nice on the opening and it dried to a decent tonka bean and wood, but it's got ingredients in it which personally I believe have been used better in other fragrances, for example, Bleu De Chanel with the grapefruit and Armani Code with the tonka dry down.

Sorry, I'm a woman
Occasionally I'm given men's scents for testing. The most tradional modern scent I do not like. Neither do I like them for my own use, nor do I like them on men. But there are a lot of masculin scents I love and use for myself. Like "Kyoto by CdG" for instance.
So, if I'm testing a scent which I consider as a men's scent only I ask myself:
1. Do I like it at all?
2. Do I like it on men?
3. Would I want to use it myself
4. Would I be intrigued by a man who is smelling with this fragrance?
5. Would I buy it for a man?
In case of "Emblem" I would answere on all questions with a clear: No!
There is nothing much to describe. "Emblem" is a "normal" scent for men which can be smelled on every corner every shop, supermarket, office etc. every day, everywhere.
Cinnamon leaf? I do not know how it could smell, I guess somehow green. Yes, "Emblem" is smelling green too. I cannot perceive tonkabean and I do not pity that.
More explanations are not neccessairy, the pyramide is not lying and maybe on a man I would perceive even tonkabean.
Because the sillage is almost evarage and is withdrawing after about 4 hours I did not suffer since I sprayed it on my skin.
But then, very close to my skin there is appearing a sweaty, sour and cutaneous note I cannot identify which ingredient is causing it. It is not oud, not oakmoss. It is not too heavy. But I know poeple who are smelling like this. I do not like that kind of human smell. And I want to stress: This cutneous note is not caused by unhygienical body-care, it is belonging to some human beings. Also I have to admit: I do not like any fragrances with the slightest hint of cutaneous notes.
Well, if a man would use"Emblem" as perfume I would always stay away in a certain distance of him.
But maybe, if a man is using "Emblem" he would not percolate that cutaneous note I am perceiving now.

I get compliment from girls, but sorry to say this fragrance doesn't have strong identity. It is suit for a person to own only 1 fragrance.
