#FollowYourSpirit with Montblanc Legend

#FollowYourSpirit … and do whatever makes you happy.


When I was growing up, the symbol of success and class was the Montblanc pen. My dad had a couple engraved with his initials that he used for when he needed to attend important meetings. When not in use, they were tucked away safe and sound in their velvet-lined cases, safe from my childish hands. At high school graduation I settled for the Cross pen set, and it seemed a Montblanc remained as unattainable as scaling the actual Mont Blanc in the Alps.

In 2011, the company came out with a men’s fragrance named Legend with a price-point that was achievable even for those who are not titans of industry. Recently they followed it up with the scent Legend Spirit. Staying true to the “blanc” in their name, the flask-inspired bottle’s lower portion is white and the scent is crisp and clean.

The Montblanc’s slogan is “Follow Your Spirit” and I’m here to tell you that my spirit loves the smell and embraces my right to wear what I want!

The fragrance is billed as having hints of peppercorn and grapefruit, topped with lavender and cashmere. I ask you – what woman doesn’t love food, flowers and fine fabric? And the more traditionally masculine tones of wood and bergamot are just as pleasing to this palate. Montblanc manages to mix all these scents into a light, airy, and downright as cool as the icy slopes of the mountain for which it’s named.

A woman wearing men’s perfume might not be newsworthy but I think it symbolizes the right to question rules and norms specifically - you should be able to do whatever you want if it doesn’t hurt anyone else. As both an influencer and CEO of an influencer network that has 20,000 members, I hear everyday women telling me they feel like they are restricted by what they feel society expects them to be.

I have the spirit of a woman who really do not care for rules. I’ll wear men’s perfume, wear white after Labor Day, and I will definitely have cake for breakfast. And so, for the time being, I’m going to “follow my spirit” and dab on the scent that reminds me I’m free #followyourspirit

  • Taylor says:

    Food, flowers, fine fabric = scent in one bottle = fabulous! This is surely a winner for me.

  • Angelique says:

    Oh Heidi, you’re a vision in white!

  • Jenni Clarence says:

    I know some women who prefer wearing men’s perfume. My oldest sister is one of them, she says she finds men’s perfume more addictive and gentle, compared to the floral citrusy ones me and my twin sister prefer. My sister would surely love MontBlac Legend.

  • Xavier says:

    I love a girl who appreciates men’s perfume and can wear the scent with no apprehensions. True, Montblanc perfumes are classic.

  • Reyanne says:

    #FollowYourSpirit now that’s nice. I remember those Montblanc pens you mentioned when I was a kid too, used by my father, only they’re not engraved. I have yet to try this perfume on my boyfriend.

  • Franchesca Diaz says:

    Sounds and smells really amazing! I’m gonna try this perfume on my husband. By the way, can I just say, you look ethereal in white? And your shoes, I soooo love them!

  • Shauna says:

    There are some men’s perfume that are subtle and mild. I wouldn’t mind wearing them too.

  • Carmencita says:

    Yes… a woman after my own heart. Who says only men get to wear men’s perfume. I myself use my husband’s brand of perfume because I thought the muskiness and scent aren’t too empowering. I will try Legend for a change.

  • Lorelei says:

    Oh my gosh, just when I thought my hubby was weird. He actually loves vanilla scent and most often, he uses my perfume. Now, it’s the other way around. I think I’m gonna try Legend and smell it myself. Who knows, maybe my hubby would go back to wearing men’s perfume..

  • Nikki Walsh says:

    For sure this smells divine, whether for men or women. I’m gonna try this Legend Spirit, too.

  • Miranda Rose says:

    I love seeing you in black and white. You look astonishing!

  • Claire Saints says:

    I got this for my husband just a week ago and he loves it. He says every single time he wears it at work, he gets compliments. I like sniffing him when he wears it, actually. Lovely smell, indeed.

  • Naomi S. says:

    Will be willing to try this one out, seems like it’s a hit to women, too.

  • Aaliyah Jane says:

    my cousin bought this for her boyfriend and yielded great results. She says her bf loved it. Might as well try it for myself

  • Gabrielle says:

    I actually like this Legend, I got it for my brother and we both like its fruity scent.

  • Airish Sophia says:

    I’ve tried wearing men’s perfume once (my brother’s perfume) and it was nice and subtle. I would be glad to try this one out (Montblanc Legend) and suggest it to him if I get the chance.

  • Wena says:

    A men’s fragrance for the modern woman? Hmm.. why not? I’d love to try this.

  • Desiree Lynch says:

    My brother uses this and he swears it smells goon on him, attracts some girls, too.

  • MJ says:

    It’s acceptable for a woman to wear men’s perfume these days. Montbanc actually smells great.

    By the way, Heidi, you look so beautiful in your black and white ensemble. You’re my idol!

  • Christina says:

    Sounds like… or should I say, smells like

  • Cassandra says:

    Heidi, you look divine in white. Even the white nails appeal to me. Perfect!

  • Margarita says:

    I got this for my husband last month and he really loves the scent. I like it too. It’s not too strong nor citrusy. Just perfect. I might want to use it myself too.

  • Rachel Kaye says:

    My boyfriend also uses this Montblanc perfume. And I actually like it, smells oh so good!

  • Colbie Geneva says:

    Can I just comment how adorably stunning you are here, dear? So classic and stylish!
