Mont Blanc Presence is a pleasant and enjoyable warm, sweet oriental scent that has reasonable performance. It opens with strong tonka and musk notes and behind those are some spicy notes, cinnamon, cardamom and a little ginger begins to peak through as the fragrance begins to settle. During the dry-down the spices become more prominent and the tonka and musk move to the background. In the later dry-down the fragrance becomes more floral and the nice spices are still there. I do get some barbershop vibes from Presence but I would say that it is more of a sweet oriental masculine fragrance. I like the scent trajectory and the spices are blended well with the early sweet and later floral notes. Mont Blanc Presence is very wearable, it is not overpowering or overtly sensual and so is suitable for most occasions. It has a nice clean vibe to it and I think it can be worn both at work or in casual settings. Mont Blanc Presence has moderate projection and lasts most of the day on my skin, it becomes a skin scent after about four or five hours. I like everything I've tried so far from the Mont Blanc stable and Presence is no exception, I'm happy to keep this in my collection.

Presence by Montblanc Review

Presence opens up with a blast of spicy cardamom, cinnamon, and ginger. This is a pleasant fresh spicy opening. The scent then takes a turn towards being more sweet with a green apple note. The fragrance is held up by a soft tonka bean dry down. It's inoffensive.

This is a great dumb reach fragrance. It could be used for any casual or work situation. It has absolutely no wow factor though. Find something else for dates or formal.

This is the third Montblanc fragrance I've purchased along with Individuel and Legend Intense. Legend Intense is my favorite of the three. As far as smell is concerned, Individuel and Presence are on the same level for me. Individuel has better performance though and seems more mass appealing.

The performance on this one is not great. I go heavy, well for me at least, with 4 to 5 sprays.

TonyTheTiger stated " Very fresh then in settles down to a sweet spicy musk". Kaizen1972 " is a nice, sweet oriental fragrance, very reminiscent of Givenchy Pi" Those 2 reviews and the nice price made it a blind buy for me. I like ambery, slightly sweet powdery fragrances. Gourmands are too sweet for me. I have Heritage, Pi, Pasha and this fits right in for me. Thallium was a blind buy that was way too sweet. For the price Presence is hard to beat.....

Has a great clean smell to it like luxury men's soap. Very fresh then in settles down to a sweet spicy musk. I purchased it for when I want to smell good but don't want to scream "I'm wearing a fragrance" e.g. at work. 1 squirt of this gives me that fresh out of the shower smell.

5* as it was only £24 for 50ml in Debenhams and a bit cheaper online. It's smells way more classy than it's price suggests.

Not bad at all.

Presence is a nice, sweet oriental fragrance, very reminiscent of Givenchy Pi and a tad like JPG Le Male. Presence does have a simpler, pleasing and laid back quality to it which is a great formulation in itself.

It lasts a long time and stays pleasant.

A light scent that stays close to the skin. Has a minty, medicinal feel mixed with the cinnamon/apple opening. Quite different from the other Mont Blanc scents, which makes this the least favorite for me but could be excellent for someone who doesn't like the other offerings from Mont Blanc.
