The Most Important Thing About This Product Is…
Like the scent of the sea air carried on a wave of spice and fruits, Explorer Ultra Blue is a refreshing and invigorating scent that will captivate you and inspire you to reach new heights.
It opens with a luminous and zesty celebration of Italian bergamot and citrus for a sweet yet energising start, enhanced by the spicy nuances of pink pepper for a fresh and spicy edge. The heart of the fragrance centres around a marine accord, which is as blue and aquatic as the depths of the ocean and as fresh as a sea breeze. This contrasts slightly with the addition of deep grey amber notes, which gives the scent a skin-like saltiness and warmth.
The base notes have been selected to transport the senses to the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia as the finest quality, exclusive note of patchouli provides a green earthiness to wrap up the scent, with the inclusion of wood to keep it balanced and grounded.
You Will Love This If…
If you love the free-spirited feeling of adventure and exploration, you’ll love this one as it perfectly captures the freshness and excitement of nature. I believe this would be a perfect scent to spray once you’ve finished a session at the gym as it feels fresh, invigorating and energising.

When the Eau de Parfum settles on the skin and gives way to the fruity notes, Explorer Ultra Blue reminds me of how your skin smells after a day at the beach. Slightly salty, fresh and reminiscent of the sea waves.
Is Ultra Blue Unisex?
Explorer Ultra Blue is marketed for men and it is definitely a masculine-edged scent; however, I love the fresh citrusy and aquatic vibes of the fragrance. It would be one I would wear if I wanted to feel fresh and suave, so I definitely think it’s universally appealing.
What’s The Longevity Like?
I was impressed with the longevity of Explorer Ultra Blue; the sea-like saltiness lingered on my skin for a long time after spritzing.
What’s The Story?
Montblanc Explorer Ultra Blue Eau de Parfum comes from the noses of Antoine Maisondieu, Jordi Fernandez and Olivier Pescheux; it’s inspired by the fresh and blue world of nature, from the sky to the sea. It invites the wearer to embrace the spirit of the adventurer and embark on a unique fragrance journey that will awaken the senses and reconnect them with the beauty of the natural world.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
If you’re familiar with the original Montblanc Explorer, then you’ll fondly recognise the cyclical design, except here, it’s been updated to an ultramarine blue to reflect the fresh sea-vibes of the scent within The silver lid is weighted, while the blue juice shines through the heavy glass; it’s a statement piece for sure.
Ethical sourcing is a priority for Montblanc, which is why the main ingredients for this scent come from Givaudan’s Sourcing for Shared Value program.
