The first Van Cleef & Arpels winter perfume has adopted a more intense fragrance based on flowery scents: jasmine, frangipani flower, mimosa, iris and vanilla slightly mixed with a loving chocolate note, form the hard core of it. The container for such a beautiful fragrance could only be beautiful itself: a jewel bottle playing with gold, black and white tones. It’s a the perfect match between the jeweller’s and haute perfumery’s know how.

Montblanc already rhymes with luxury, and its new, intense perfume Legend stays in the note. Orange essential oils and pear give out tender and subtile, but not too sweet, scents.
