Best Back-to-School Fragrance for Him: Montblanc Legend Red

Heading back to school? You might want to pack a bottle of fragrance to wear when you’re studying. That’s because scientists have discovered that you can prompt your brain to remember facts and figures faster through your sense of smell. Our olfactory sense is directly connected to the part of the brain that controls memory. That’s why when you smell a certain fragrance or aroma, it will immediately bring back memories of when you first smelled it.

Using this hypothesis, you can help remember facts and figures during exams if you wear a fragrance while studying. Make it a scent you don’t normally wear every day. Spritz before studying and then again just before you take a test or exam. You’ll be shocked at how the scent will assist your brain in remembering what you studied.

For fall 2022, we love Montblanc Legend Red for back-to-school. It is an energizing aromatic-woody scent for him that blends notes of blood orange, sage and mahogany woods. The sage contributes a strongly aromatic character and balances the freshness of the orange and the masculinity of the woods.

Ingredients: blood orange, sage, mahogany woods

Montblanc Legend Red is available at select Sephora stores and online at

    I think that’s really interesting, I know if I smell a scent from the past it brings back memories that I forgot about.

    I never thought about how keen our senses truly are. I do know when my husband wears MontBlanc Legend I have a smile on my face because it smells so nice on him. I will also be on the look out for this one in the stores. As the red bottle will stand out boldly on the shelf.
