Compliment magnet
I'm writing this comment because I recently got what happened to the perfume, which I've never had with any other perfume :D
In general, I was surprised at how many compliments I received for this perfume, both from the male side and especially from the female side. After two sprays on my neck and after about an hour I walk to the stadium in the open air (!) on a windy evening, a young woman shouts "Hey you in a black sweater, you smell really good!" three (!) metres apart I was really surprised, on the one hand because I don't overdose the scent and on the other hand because this Grapefruit-Moschus scent is actually a gentle, rather discreet variant.
This perfume is totally underestimated and a little insider tip from me ;)

The fresh and light aquatic Spirit
As per the Cambridge English Dictionary, "Spirit" may stand for " a particular way of feeling".
The Legend Spirit aims at giving you a cheerful mood, and refresh your senses in Spring and Summer hot days, or tropical vacations. And it is quite successful at it.
Designed in the trails of scents like Invictus Aqua, Rasasi Hawas or Carven l'Eau Intense, it works like a magician when you are either at the seaside, or in the gym or even in the club.

You start this Legend journey with a precious and refreshing grapefruit well supported by bergamot and the inevitable pink pepper. The coolness evolves for a refreshing aqueous, dewy note, providing you the sought after freshness. The mossy and musky bottom wood notes that follow will try against all odds to retain some of that coolness and moisture during the drydown. Unfortunately the drydown does not last long, but you can always respray this cool Spirit at your own will.
The fragrance is quite alluring and a big success with the gentle gender. It's quite a seductive quality scent in the line of many designer expensive EDTs.

Let's see how we may score this Legendary Spirit:
Scent Opening: 8.5 (nice, seductive and cool)
Scent Dry Down: 7.5 (very nice and alluring, but so faint...)
Longevity: 6.75 (3 good sprays may last up to 4~5 hours)
Sillage: 6.5 (3 feet at its peak with 3 heavy sprays and 1~1.5 hours of shy projection)
Uniqueness: 6.5 (3.5 points taken due to its similarity with Invictus Aqua, Legend, Invictus, Carven l'Eau Intense, Zara Teahupoo and Dark Crude, Dunhill Icon Racing, Cartier Pasha Noir Sport, Rasasi Hawas, Armaf Aura, Kelsey Berwin Zeus, Versace Man Eau Fraiche, King of Seduction, Blu di Roma Uomo, Aqva Pour Homme Marine, Terre d'Hermes Eau Tres Fraiche, Brit Splash, Aques Estiara, ... and of course not comparing neither price, nor performance; many of the fragrances I mentioned were released after Legend Spirit, so actually they are copying it..)
Wearability: 8.0 (very easy to wear but avoid cold weather)
Versatility: 8.5 ("all around" versatile fragrance provided it's not cold. Reigning king as a fragrance for the beach, work out, summer city tourism, esplanade "dolce far niente" and for an open air club.)
Compliments: 9.0 (This fragrance it's a compliment magnet but don't forget to respray)
Quality: 8.5 (Above average quality, quality ingredients, nice flask, nice cap, nice sprayer; If it wouldn't be for the performance issues, I would rate it with a 10.0)
Presentation: 9.0 (no faults, simple but elegant, the best looking bottle of all the aquatic scents I mentioned earlier and a lot more preety than the Invictus tacky flask)
Price: 8.0 (100 ml non tester for €31, so half of Invictus Aqua price, but 2.5 times the price of Zara Teahupoo or Dark Crude; The price is slowly coming down in the web distributors); EDIT - In the last day of 2018 I bought a 2nd flask for €20,00).

Overall rating: 7.89/10.00
- between 7 and 8 =above average;
- between 8 and 9 = recomended;
- bigger than 9 = don't miss it;
Advice: If you want a very agreable, fresh, alluring, for the gym or beach cologne, and that you may wear together or in place of Invictus Aqua 2016, by no means go ahead and buy it. If you want desperatly to wear this type of scent but you are on a tight budget, try Zara Teahupoo for €12,50. If the Spirit price drops to the same level of Legend Chrome, it will become a smashing sales hit.

A fresh & compelling gem hidden in plain sight
Mb Legend Spirit was (and is!) for me one of those instant favourites. One of those rare scents that you upon first sniff just know it'll have a place on your shelf (and on your skin) for a long time to come. Initially I chose between this and the black original bottle after getting a sample vial of each. I liked both but glad I chose this one as it is exactly what I was looking for in a scent - citrus fresh but with character and lasting power, somehow Montblanc created a gem of a fragrance that is freshly aquatic while at the same time being sweetly aromatic (but not cloying), the pink pepper notes give it a sexy-spicy twist, I couldn't stop sniffing myself after I first sprayed this on my skin.

To my nose Legend Spirit smells like a quality scent that the likes of Dior or Chanel would put out, it has (some of!) the compelling nature and beautiful opening of Dior Homme Sport (2008) but with some of the traits of more recent crowd pleasers by Paco Rabanne and Dior (you know the ones). On my (super-absorbant) skin the dry down isn't as delicious as the opening (much better on clothes though) but is nice enough and lasts a fairly long time, not beast mode but above average and it performs extremely well on clothing.

With good sillage and performance in general and it's pleasing scent this is no-doubt a compliment getter but I really wear this for myself, it just makes me feel so good being in an aroma bubble that I enjoy and definitely gives me a refreshingly youthful energy boost too!

My subjective scent rating: 10/10!
Performance: 8/10
Value for money: 9/10
Am I willing to trade this: No chance! OK maybe for a DHS 2008 bottle!
Will I buy again? I hope so!

Message to MontBlanc: Please NEVER discontinue or reformulate this stuff!

Salt on our skin???
Well, I'll make it as short as possible! This fragrance cannot "stink" in my nose against the Montblancs Indivuduel, Presence and Starwalker, which I otherwise love! Fortunately, all three can still be ordered, but will probably no longer be produced! Another shame: The good ones serve them up, the bad ones keep them! :-( According to the motto "I liked the old songs, not the new ones"! What would I give to be allowed to smell Photo, Relax or Bogner Man again ...

But to LS: No bad or bad smell, but I have enough choice in the cupboard to reach in the "fresh case" to something else. What's the matter with you? LS has a very salty note for me and I can't deal with that. I don't know where it came from, but I feel it that way. Therefore LS smells for me somehow "mustier" and "stricter" than other citric aquatics, which I like very much. So a little bit after sweat halt! ;-)

But of course it's just my personal impression again. So who likes it ..

Invictus clone
Invictus clone, it smells good in the initial spray then i feel i'm gonna throw up, not my thing at all!! very synthetic and in a not good way, so i'm gonna stick to Mont Blanc Legend Intense which smells amazing and very well blended.

So this is a huge PASS for me.

Casual Summer
Montblanc Legend Spirit is a good casual scent for the spring or summer. I think it is a very versatile fragrance and it would probably make a good work scent. Ideal for casual occasions but no reason why this could not be worn for more formal event also. Legend Spirit has a well blended opening and is has some sweetness but is also clean, fresh and invigorating It has the potential to collect complements. I get slightly above average projection / silage for the first 1 to 2 hour after that its starts getting closer to the skin. Longevity 6- 7 hours.

The white and chrome colour scheme of the bottle is a solid enough design but the downside is the bottle its totally opaque. it would have been nice to a have a small section to see the amount of visible juice remaining.

Overall scent 7.5/10

Spirit is a pleasant Summer/Spring Legend. It's a bit synthetic with a scent related to Invictus Acqua and Dunhill Icon Racing. Good value!+4

I love the way it opens, fresh and aromatic, I guess I geeked out for a bit. Suddenly, it turns into something luscious, not my kind, sigh+4
