It's no secret that I'm a sucker for scents. I mean, I never really leave the house without putting on some cologne or EDT. However, I try hard not to open too many bottles at once. It should only be two or three in rotation at any given time.
So just recently I was happy to have finally opened my bottle of Individuel by Mont Blanc that I got last December. Yes, it's been more than half a year already and I'm only using it now. I should be rewarded for my discipline.
I'm no expert at perfumery but Individuel initially gives out a fresh, slightly sharp smell when first sprayed. Credit that to its top notes of bergamot, mint, and a slew of other floral and fruity scents. Eventually the freshness gives way to a deeper, more earthy scent as its base notes of amber, vanilla, and musk come to life.
Despite its complexity, Individuel is not a heavy scent to wear. It sits just fine in a tropical climate like here in the Philippines as it does in cooler temperatures. As for longevity, it does a pretty good job that easily puts Dolce & Gabbana's The One to shame. I'm just not comfortable enough with the bottle. I feel like I could drop it any time when holding it.
Nevertheless, Mont Blanc did a great job with Individuel. It's my first Mont Blanc EDT and I'm happy that I bought it. It's something I'd definitely use again and recommend guys trying.
