An Intense, Infinite and Fresh Fragrance for the Adventurous Soul | Montblanc Explorer Ultra Blue
An ode to natural blue, Montblanc Explorer Ultra Blue celebrates the Maison’s connection with nature, reflected in the distinctive citrus, woody and marine notes of the fragrance. It is the newest addition to the Montblanc Explorer line first launched in 2019, developed by world travelers and talented noses – Givaudan’s Jordi Fernandez, Olivier Pescheux, and Antoine Maisondieu – the original scent fits today’s explorer, awakening a desire to discover nature’s palette of blues in the sky, lakes, and mountains.
Montblanc’s ethical sourcing continues to be a priority in the creation of this line of fragrances, with the main ingredients of Montblanc Explorer Ultra Blue coming from Givaudan’s Sourcing for Shared Value program. The famous fragrance house supports local producers, embracing ethical and sustainable development. A commitment in line with the philosophy of Montblanc Explorer, where travel goes hand in hand with making the world a better place and creating a brighter future.
This support to local communities is also reflected in Montblanc’s educative initiatives for future generations, such as the construction of three libraries for school children in the regions of Buton and Katoi on the island of Sulawesi.
Innovative and Artisan Fragrance Development and Bottling
Synonymous with excellence in craftsmanship and design, Montblanc has been pushing the boundaries of innovation ever since the Maison first revolutionized the culture of writing in 1906. Ingenuity and imagination continue to be driving forces for the Maison today as it advances its expression of fine craftsmanship across its range of product categories.
Reflecting upon its ongoing mission to create fine lifetime companions born from bold ideas and expertly crafted through the skills of the Maison’s artisans, the iconic Montblanc Emblem has become the ultimate seal of performance, quality and an expression of sophisticated style. As part of its on-going commitment to elevating and support those who strive to leave their mark, Montblanc continues to assert its encouragement of education programs around the world and initiatives that inspire people to express their full potential.
The Montblanc Explorer Ultra Blue leans into the Maison’s long tradition of fine European craftsmanship with stops in Germany, Italy, and France. It is assembled by hand in the Maison’s Pelleteria in Florence. The elegant Saffiano motif used on Montblanc leather creations since 1926 and the Montblanc emblem crafted in Montblanc’s Hamburg manufacture adorn the bottle’s protective sheaf. The iconic Montblanc star on the bottle’s base represents six glacial slopes creating the snowy peak of a mountain.
The Montblanc Explorer Ultra Blue was conceived as a fragrance for adventurers and is also available in a 30ml travel bottle, a convenient size that allows the explorer to bring his fragrance everywhere he goes.
Embodying the Spirit of Adventure
The fragrance campaign, shot by John Balsom, captures the spirit of exploration of Explorer Ultra Blue, featuring model and adventurer Rein Langeveld, on his own epic journey, right where the blue of the sky, of a lake and the highest peaks of the French Alps meet.
Mountain and water, the inspiration for the fragrance, are as much the heroes of the story as our intrepid explorer. A celebration of open skies, breathtaking mountain scapes, and the pure air of high altitudes, the awe-inspiring visuals serve as a reminder that when you find your spirit of exploration, you can push beyond boundaries, with only the sky as the limit.
Blue is the colour of the sky and the seas; the colour of ice-covered mountain peaks and expansive lakes. On the horizon of every adventurer, blue always invites discovery and exploration, an irresistible invitation to embrace the explorer’s adventurous spirit, and embark on an epic olfactory journey.
With Montblanc Explorer Ultra Blue, the Maison writes a new exciting chapter in the Explorer adventure. An invitation to embark on an unforgettable expedition, experience wide-open spaces and expansive mountain lakes, and enjoy the pure freshness of the deep blue of nature, captured in a vibrant new fragrance.
