Today in Gear: A Leathery Fragrance from Montblanc, a Gravel Bike You Can Ride Anywhere & More

The best way to catch up on the day’s most important product releases and stories.


Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com.

Of all the senses, none conjures up a mood or brings back old memories quite like the sense of smell. If you’re looking for a fragrance that hits all the right notes, Montblanc’s Explorer Eau de Parfum is a good place to start. Launched earlier this year, Explorer is a woody, worldly, leathery aroma — with top notes of Sicilian bergamot, a powerful body of Haitian vetiver and a base made from Montblanc’s exclusive, ethically sourced Indonesian patchouli. And to complete your aura, pick up Montblanc’s Explorer fragrance in the gift set, which includes an aftershave balm in the same scent. The gift set also includes a travel spray that you can take with you to maintain your essence wherever you go.
