Bamboo a surprising scent on Starwalker
SOTD (Scent of the Day): Montblanc Starwalker EDT: As of 02/07/19

It seems to my nose the Bamboo stands out on this fragrance, and I do detect the citruses like the bergamot and Mandarin orange with the musk and sandalwood in the background. Bamboo, Bergamot and Mandarin orange are the stronger notes coming to front face and center. People said Bamboo is more being synthetic and sharp, to me the Bamboo is sharp in a good way not overpowering to just blended correctly. I will add Starwalker to my summer rotation and value is spot on and as well a good office scent and close to a year around scent except on the winter time.

My SOTD (Scent of the Day/Office Scent of the Day): Montblanc Starwalker: As of 03/07/19

My 2nd wearing of this fragrance as my office scent of the day as of 03/07/19, again my nose detects the bamboo which is synthetic and to me it doesn't bother and as well the bergamot, mandarin, sandalwood and musk which rounds out the rest of the notes It is a safe office scent, I didn't get a compliment but my coworkers were not offended by the scent. Is a good spring/summer freshie and for the price is a bargain. Longevity/Performance is 7.5 out of 10: 8-11 sprays: Lasted on my skin as a skin scent around 6-8+ hrs, and my overall rating for this fragrance is 7.25 out of 10 a good fragrance for the spring/summer seasons and is a must have for the price/bargain

Citrus, Wood and Zen
There is something almost soothing about Starwalker's opening bamboo and bergamot combo, a gentle blend of sweet soft wood and sharp citrus with all other supporting notes in the background –fir, ginger, cedar, sandalwood– adding to the quiet, zen-like balance. This is not an aggressive scent that will turn you into an alpha male; it's a fresh, watery fragrance preparing you for a meditation session on the yoga mat.

Individuel or Legend and its flankers may have been getting all the attention in recent years but to me Starwalker is the real hidden gem in Montblanc's collection. As a lover of citrus fragrances with a distinct personality this is as close to signature scent material as it gets.

Hype suspicious!
When I first applied for Starwalker and was allowed to enjoy one day in the office, only one thing occurred to me: Damned, he's good ... and not only hit- but hype-suspicious! So I immediately had to think of Aqva Amara, who smells completely different, but still has something in common with this Montblanc: He was no longer to be produced until the Bvlgari was hyped this year in such a way that he experienced an unexpected comeback. And while the Starwalker is also a discontinued model, I felt that this exceptionally good fragrance would also have to be hyped so that it would continue to be produced. Because taking him out of the program is truly a sin!

Right at the beginning Starwalker scores with a fresh, bright fruit opening, a very appealing mixture of the indicated top notes bamboo, bergamot, mandarin. However, it is not too citric, as one could assume, but as it were as warm as soft, which should probably contribute beside the mandarin also the bamboo. This combination is very pleasantly light, friendly, sympathetic. I liked this scent from the first second on, but it gets even better ...

There is not much going on about the first three quarters of an hour and you simply enjoy the beautiful atmosphere that this Montblanc creates. Then, however, the heart notes are increasingly asserting themselves as a counterpoint to the initial fruit sweetness, even if they are very subtle: Ginger and nutmeg (perhaps also the fir resin) make it a little spicier and thus more transparent and differentiated. There is more going on in the fragrance, which now has an increasingly stimulating and vitalising effect, but still remains very balanced - simply a round thing. Nothing drifts off in any unwanted direction, but the scent becomes "only" more mature, wins in addition - great done!

Yes, and then, ... after approx. 1.5 hours this Star Walker becomes a Star Climber when it slowly climbs to its heights by playing its true trump card with the Mountblanc: The wood! For now the journey leads us to the highest (praise) tones: the sandalwood and the cedar are added and give this high-flyer increasing presence, yes after another half hour he even becomes a little pointed and "sharp":

Montblanc's Starwalker is becoming more and more woody, contoured, creaky. And yet the fine freshness remains, because the top notes never disappear, and always remain with about 30-40%. This final melange, a mix of clear, almost piercingly light dry wood and the fruity freshness of the top notes (on a shirt) lasts unexpectedly long with about 6-7 hours, with a clearly audible sillage, at half arm's length.

In my opinion, this fragrance is neither particularly green nor does it smell like "almost only mandarin", as it is called in other reviews. Sure, Starwalker is fruity and the mandarin contributes a certain softness to the citric. And yes, it has something of Versaces Man Eau Fraîche and my signature scent Chrome Sport, but max. 40-50% of their citric freshness. Because the top notes of the Starwalker do not constitute its dominance, but over 2/3 of the smell process the wood. First and foremost it is a sweet woody scent with a (citric)-fruity superstructure.

So Starwalker is a direct hit, which will surely accompany me for a long time, because he is also a very good Alrounder. Ideal in spring and autumn - especially during the day in the office and leisure time. Because for me the woody freshness of this wonderful fragrance star is simply

hype-suspicious !

Great in top note but gone fast
This is my one of the best fragrance in term of opening scent. The bamboo and citrus is quite nice but after 1-2 hours, the scent will be like skin scent and after 4-5 hours, it almost disappear. Waring this fragrance outside room may lost the scent more quickly.
Note that, All is use by myself. It may difference with another person skin. Please test on yourself again.

Cool, Metro, Citrusy Niceness.
This had been my signature scent since 2007, until it was recently dethroned by Bvlgari Man Extreme. It's an excellent office frag because it seems to evoke modern architecture with that crisp, well-blended mandarin-ginger combo, with a touch of aquatic-ness from the bamboo. It's a little sharp off the top, but when it dries down, the cedar comes out and gives it a solid base to hold onto. In fact, the overall feel is one of pencil shavings amidst a bowl of citrus fruit. At least, that's what I get.

I don't know why, but this frag always reminds me of academia. Maybe it's the pencil shaving analogy reminding me of elementary school, but I can totally see this being the signature scent of Principal Seymour Skinner from the Simpsons. It's just got that blue, sharp and proper feel about it, with and air of reliability and calmness. An easy dumb reach if that's what you're looking for. Perfect for most occasions and all ages. Plus, the longevity is good for a freshie. I just wish they had made the bottle bigger.

Great opening
Opens beautifuly with a nice bamboo note but then it just disappears. Big disappointment.

Lasting power is like 1 hour. Sillage and projection are average.

This could easily be between the top ones if the notes were better worked.

Anyway, if you're looking for an inoffensive scent for office, this scent may be your choice.

Opens with citrus-bamboo scent then dries down pleasantly because of the ginger. Perfect for work. I hope they make the intense edition.+2
