FRAGRANCES ARE FULL of promises. The promise to make you smell good, for one, but there’s also the promise to transport your mind to a particular place, whether that be a seaside destination, a desert at sunset or an alpine ski resort. It is rare, however, to find a fragrance quite this evocative, which is precisely why we were so captivated by the rhapsody of Montblanc’s new Explorer Platinum scent. It delivers on exactly what it says it will: to elevate your style, push boundaries, and help you reach new heights, all while conjuring images of the mountains in which it was born. It’s an olfactory adventure, where the thrill of the ascent is matched only by the reward that awaits at the top.

Montblanc’s signature Explorer collection evokes the spirit of adventure, paying tribute to the Maison’s pioneering past while leading us on an aromatic expedition towards the future. The fragrance’s new platinum edition takes that philosophy one step further. This time, with a resonant, earthy aroma and an elegant design.

Like contemporary Magellan’s, with Platinum, Montblanc is testing the boundaries of discovery, creating a fragrance that doesn’t just flirt with adventure, but embraces it. Montblanc has an intrinsic connection to mountains—after all, the Maison is named for Europe’s highest peak—and Explorer Platinum takes that connection to its apex.

The new fragrance isn’t just about smelling great—though it certainly delivers on that promise. It’s about embodying the spirit of adventure, exuding the confidence of a true explorer, and relishing in our connection to nature. Yes, you really can capture all of that in a bottle. Featuring an expertly crafted blend of top quality ingredients hand selected by Montblanc’s master perfumers Bruno Jovanovic, Nathalie Lorson and Fabrice Pellegrin, the Platinum pays homage to noble woods like cypress and cedarwood, with notes of grapefruit, violet leaves and sage lending the masculine scent an air of refinement. Unfolding like a deftly crafted novel, these elements combine to produce a scent with an unmistakably textural woodiness. 


It’s not just the olfactory components that make Platinum stand out. Its sleek and elegant bottle design is a visual representation of the brand’s commitment to luxury and adventure. The Montblanc name is synonymous with exploration, and throughout its storied history, the brand has created cutting-edge timepieces for history’s most fearless adventurers. It is one of those watches, the signature Montblanc 1858 Geosphere, which serves as the inspiration for the design of the elegant Platinum bottle. With a textured silver sleeve, a platinum hue and the iconic Montblanc emblem, it’s a piece of design you’ll want on your nightstand. 

In an ever-changing modern world that demands boldness, it is our individuality that separates us from the pack. And the Explorer Platinum, with its distinctive qualities, has the power to do exactly that. Here, the emphasis is on adventure, but as with all good adventures, it’s up to the wearer to choose their own. 

So, whether you’re a fragrance collector or you’re simply in search of a new signature scent, believe us: Explorer Platinum is a treat for your senses, and stands as testament to Montblanc’s continuing ability to outfit and equip the modern man. With every application, you will be embodying the guiding tenets of exploration. As for where they will lead you, well, that’s what the adventure of life is all about.
