Fragrance Notes: Montblanc Emblem is a manifesto of luxury, and an ode to Montblanc’s heritage that brings together expert craftsmanship, authority and timeless appeal. Emblem opens with a bracing trilogy of bitter grapefruit, icy cardamom and clary sage leaf. In the heart, a juxtaposition of frosted violet leaves and warm cinnamon create dynamic motion, before a luxurious dry down of precious woods and tonka beans leave a lasting impression.
