Solid for the price
L’Homme Exceptionnel by Montblanc is nothing exceptional, but it’s really nice in the less exciting meaning ever. It is basically a pedantic but perfectly enjoyable cedar-amber scent infused with a sweet-zesty orange head note, and some synthetic patchouli to give a hint of “dark class”. Nothing more and nothing less than you can imagine; it’s woody, aromatic, slightly sweet, warm and inoffensive, but crisp and discreet. Simple, inexpensive and effective like an Ikea table.
