Unique, unknown, cheapie!
For me, it's borderline obnoxious but quite beautiful and comforting. It's interesting how Almairac's compositions have this dichotomous effect on me. Well, except for the case of Sculpture Homme by Nikos, that one I really can't stand. Despite that, I recognise its simplicity and uniqueness.

The fusion of citric notes and vanilla has that Almairac signature to it. I immediately knew this was created by him.

The composition is quite different from Sculpture, but the aura is there.
Feminine? A bit. Masculine? A bit. You get the point!

The ubiquitous presence of woman?
Women are just EVERYWHERE! Uh wait, first of all hello everybody :D
So... Women are just EVERYWHERE!!! Well, you have to admit that guys are everywhere... but guys don't scare you as much as when you are alone (or outnumbered) in a place where you women dominate!

Oh dear, I could get hysterical again, just because the name of the fragrance means something like "presence of a woman" here, and that only if I didn't translate the name completely wrong... just now in the new year I should be less annoying and more... uh... love you ladies? Oh, I don't know :D

But before I say anything completely wrong, I'd rather come to this Montblanc fragrance. But nevertheless my text here is certainly better than many a text from a fragrance manufacturer. This one says among other things that the fragrance would be suitable for all women who feel "exceptionally sexy and elegant". And now look for scent descriptions that say something similar! Well? What did you find? That's right! That's pretty much true of all sorts of women's scent descriptions, isn't it? He he :D
And if you are honest, this does not only happen with fragrances, but with all kinds of products, because of course a manufacturer has to write things like "The fragrance for the elegant woman of today" in order to sell the product, stupid that all this sounds very trite by now :D

As long as the fragrance (or product) does not suffer from it, that's fine. For crazy and stupid texts you have me here :DD
Well then, I'll get to the scent! Br />
A little later I continue to smell tangerines and pepper, and now I also perceive a little rose and woody notes. The woody notes here are soft and not sharp like cedar or something like that, so they smell more like sandalwood and the like. All this with a "dash" of vanilla, which later becomes a little stronger in the base.
In the base the fragrance is sweetish and peppery. It now smells mainly of vanilla with a touch of pepper, the citrus notes like tangerines have now almost completely disappeared. In addition, there are still woods as well as a low, earthy patchouli note.

The silage and the durability:*
The sillage is medium, so you can smell it for a little while at a short distance.
The shelf life is quite good at about seven to eight hours, although it is much weaker in the later hours.



It smells very feminine, and this although the pepper is always to be smelled. But the pepper is mild and therefore also has a pleasant scent. Apart from that, you ladies seem to like pepper very much anyway, why else do I keep hearing things like "Get lost! Go to where the pepper grows!!!",... *sigh* No wonder I never dare to ask anybody for a date, when you all get so angry :D

Anyway, as I said, the scent is worth a test, even though you wouldn't miss anything if you left the scent out. And, yes, have a good evening, everyone. And I... I really need to find out where that ominous place is where the pepper grows..

Presence d'Un Homme, not d'Une Femme
This is an incredible woody vanilla, more woody than vanilla to me. Unisex, more masculine than feminine on me, and so so very wearable by a guy. Just a bit of pepper to make it interesting. I don't sense any florals. It has a masculine edge to it that wears like cedar, harboring close to classic aftershave. It smells amazingly clean & uncomplicated, and it wears close to skin on me. I like it but not enough to keep it.

It's great office fragrance for either a man or a woman. For wood-loving fumies like @malegria, this is a must try!

Alternative review -

Presence is a very masculine fragrance for a feminine, in my opinion. It seems to me to have cedar in it, which always wears like aftershave on me. Or, perhaps it is the patchouli. Regardless, this is not one for flower-lovers. It's classified as an oriental vanilla, but it seems like a woody to me. Probably best for those who seek out non-floral fragrances.

The fragrance is solid & good, but definitely try this one before you buy this one. It's difficult to wear, and I think more men would wear it off-the-shelf than women. Unique bottle, though.
