A Person's Charisma
Legend Night's bottle has an intense cognac color with contrasting black details inspired by a fine liqueur. And there is an ambery-type scent in Legend Night. It has a morsel of everything you would expect from a woody, aromatic, and spicy cologne for men. It has a smooth and powdery texture, even though it has a fresh/spicy opening with cardamom, mint, and cedar. Night is the fourth chapter of the Legend saga, after the original Legend Eau de Toilette, the Legend Intense, and the Legend Spirit.

On my skin, it opens up with a big blast of candied green apple spiced with a puff of green cardamom and a dab of mint. I can pick up the caramel nuance and lavender from the very beginning. The minty feeling adds deepness but lasts only a moment; it almost immediately disappears. The opening is bright, reminiscent of the natural radiance of man's aura. The start will remind you of something familiar if you are anything like me. Having mint, sage, and cardamom together adds a lot of spice to what would otherwise be another vanilla and apple scent.

The scent turns powdery as the minty edge tones down because the violet creeps in. The violescent lavender is more prominent now, and the apple moves to the back. It shares the herbal facet of the middle stage with the vetiver. The middle notes immediately counterbalance this first impression of refreshing coolness with their warm nobility. This is the point at which the floral notes really come into their own. The precious scents of dry cedarwood blend well with the floral lavender tones and slightly powdered violet.

When the scent approaches the dry-down, I get vanillic sweetness with a touch of warm woods, while fruity apple and spicy cardamom still linger in the back. I pick up a lot of sweetness, but sweet without crossing into gourmand territory. The vanilla note is an exciting take on today's trendy, charming vanilla-centered men's scents on the designer market: it has a dark vibe. Honeyed would be the closest term. Sweet, vanilla, tastes of honey and caramelized sugar, with a bit of apple, sage, citrus, and vetiver. I can smell vetiver and patchouli near my skin, accompanied by subtle notes of dark vanilla and velvety musk.

It is a scent with a masculine slant, but not in an alpha-male way and free from aggression. It best suits the fall and cold winter seasons, definitely an evening and night out type of cologne, but I can wear it even during the day. While the performance will not last an entire workday, it is acceptable for most evenings out and most date nights, quite a good cuddle scent. Although advertised as a night cologne, the fragrance is, to me, very smooth. I think you can get away with using this as an office fragrance. The scent is delightful, sweet, and woody at the same time. Yes, I actually like it a lot.

I base the review on a bottle I have owned since June 2019.

Sweet, very sweet, sugar sweet
Montblanc yes in itself not known for creating highly attractive fragrances and then launching.

Their releases are often based on already known, extremely successful fragrance compositions Generally, they are so-called crowd pleasers!
Perhaps to grab as big a piece of the so sweet tasting cake as possible.

Initially, a slightly spicy, herbaceous note comes out briefly, stirring in through the sage.
Subsequently, the lavender and violet comes out quite quickly.
Form with the vanilla and patchouli and cedar a slightly creamy, almost balsamic coating.

Role models of this fragrance composition can be found D&G The One or also at Valentino.
Qualitatively probably also there somewhat better implemented, but also 1- 2€uronen more costing.

Flacon: quite stable - with metal cap

Durability: also relatively stable in this price segment (mid-priced designer) - 6h+

Sillage: quite quickly close to the body - maximum 3h then close to the body - if desired reapplication

Conclusion: spicy / sweet fragrance - for cool / wet & dark autumn evenings particularly well suited - rather suitable for younger audience - but this ultimately remains a question of taste

Free at last!
The first thing that can be perceived is an intense and powerful ethereal sweet herbaceous note, which exudes a certain pithiness and is due to the 'sage'.

At the same time, the sage merges with a delicate citrus nuance, which gives the fragrance a note reminiscent of red apple, but it is not a red apple at all, but probably comes from the interaction with the 'bergamot'; as well as Madagascar - vanilla and patchouli in the right mixing ratio results in full milk chocolate, or it could also be the basic - DNA of the fragrance and I am therefore absolutely not sure whether the red apple in the fragrance pyramid was simply not published by the manufacturer; so anything is possible.

And there I remember that I have given my, on New Year's Eve born 16 year old little brother (he is not at all more, he has meanwhile more upper arm, than I leg :-) ) a Montblanc fountain pen and he also likes the something, not quite extreme sweet fragrances, so I have sent him a Montblanc Legends Night flacon and it has really actually worked out that he has got this flacon exactly on his 18th birthday.

- I love it when my plan works out! :-)

A little bit later, the fragrance becomes quite deeply floral and also spicy and accompanied by a fine Mediterranean, almost sweetly tinged smooth note and I also suspected the use of 'violet' and 'lavender' and additionally a touch of 'neroli'.

In the last 3 hours remains a vanillig lovely creamy, delicately woody tinged cedar and the question of whether he is now also free of this deviant animal, what may call himself man, Finally answered with "Yes"!

'Vetiver and 'Patchouli' I could not perceive, however, I can imagine very well that these components were used to complete.

Overall, the fragrance lasts 7 hours on my skin.

The sillage is designed from the beginning 3 hours to a very perceptible half arm's length, before it reduces in quiet steps until the fragrance fades.

"Honk1510, thanks for the bottling!"

Spicy Vanilla and Mass Appealing
Nice spicy, woody, vanilla and warm winter fragrance. Really like the sweetness. The fragrance opens well, and as it starts to dry down it turns into a skin scent after an hour or two, and then it seems to fade away.

Who ... will have to play Legend Night!
A scent, as if on the bearskin in front of the fireplace, you are given another present. Seductive, reserved, determined, a slightly caramel note and enriched with a shot of ten-year-old Taliskers. Next to a neck smelling of Legend Night there are probably two shoulders to lean on. And the lady of the heart also has to lean back, because this perfume is hardly noticeable after 48 minutes. It's subtle.

This fragrance is not a Rolex Daytona, it is a Zenith El Primero. Connoisseurs nod appreciatively, riot brothers are only irritated. But the ladies love him.

Thankfully another insider tip. Because this scent is what most men would like it to be.

Fall/winter under radar scent
I bought this the other day after hearing about it.
It opens up fresh with the mint and bergamot to my nose. Then I get the Apple and vanilla combo
And the dry down is beautiful.
As per other people’s concerns even though it’s a edp the performance can be a bit to be desired.
Although it does stick around and you do get nice reminders that it is still there I do wish that it projected a bit more as the scent is awesome and I have received some good compliments since my purchase.
All in all an under the radar scent if it lasted longer projection and sillage wise it could have been an absolute winner
Would recommend it if you are happy with 1-2 hours push for sillage and about 5-6 hours as a skin scent

Night Bomb
I tested this out on a paper strip at my local Hudson's Bay. The first thing I noticed was a wonderful mint note layered over the darker ones. It was quite delightful. After a while I noticed there was a real gourmand quality to this scent. After a few hours I experienced one of the most satisfying dry downs ever. Beautiful wood spicy scent. Real masculine. This scent is definitely for nights out and preferably in colder weather. If you want an alternative to the Dior L'Hommes of the world, this is it.

Nice scent, similar in vibe to YSL La Nuit. It's pretty soft but no worse than the current 'La Nuit' this seems a more simple scent though.

I really wanted to love this spicy & sweet fragrance. It's synthetic and an under average perfomer. The scent is mainstream. A no no for me.

Cardamom-Apple-Akigalawood-Vanilla accords are the main scents of this night Montblanc. Performance is on the weak side! Fairly common!

Warm, sweet and pleasant apple and vanilla combo for the colder months. Only EDP in the Legend line up yet the weakest performer.
