I was first introduced to Montblanc by my dad, when I was younger. My dad was a criminal attorney who embodied class and taste similar to Montblanc. He would wear the best suits, shoes preferably loafers and had a great taste for his accessories. I remember him writing letters or signing checks with his Meisterstuck Red Gold-Coated Classique Ballpoint Pen and also me wanting one of my own. So with that in my subconscious mind; I always knew I would wear suits and want the finer things in life but didn’t know exactly why.
A few words that Mont Blanc represents to me are elegance, quality, class, style and taste; just to name a few. So it’s no surprise that Legend Spirit also represents the same adjectives in a bottle and fragrance. At first glance, I loved the esthetic of the bottle. The cleanliness of the bottle and font. I love how the upper part of the bottle has a metallic finish, while the bottom half has a white finish to keep everything clean and sharp. The Montblanc signature is located on the metallic upper part of the bottle, on the lid and the name also appears. On the bottom of the packaging of Legend Spirit, Montblanc included three metallic rings that represents Montblanc’s writing instruments.
When I received Legend Spirit, I immediately opened the box and had to test it out. Once I sprayed the fragrance on my skin, I definitely enjoyed it. What caught my attention of the fragrance; was how fresh and soft but how masculine and versatile Legend Spirit is. With a woody finish; Legend Spirit has fresh notes of pink peppercorn, bitter grapefruit, lavender and oak moss to give it that unique signature scent of Montblanc Legend.
When it comes to clothing or my accessories; I need those items to be very versatile. I’m not one to buy items and wear it at a certain time. Legend Spirit, can be worn in the morning to go to work, running errands or to an evening Gala. All you need is a few sprays and it will last you all day.

Follow Your Spirit:
When it comes to style you should follow your spirit; or in other words, have faith and confidence in your abilities. Never follow someone else because their path isn’t your path. Become an inspiration to others, because you never know who’s watching you from a far.
Recently, I purchased a new suit from a thrift location in Houston and loved it. I am a huge fan of Italian suiting and this charcoal stripe, notch lapel suit caught my eye. After taking it to my tailor and receiving it a week later; I was thrilled with the result. I paired my charcoal suit with a contrast white-collar and blue stripe dress shirt from Jos A Banks, a brown with blue floral dots tie, tie bar, gray and blue socks from the Gap and my Cole Haan cap toe dress shoes. By me following my spirit and having confidence in myself . I understand who I am and what I like.
