Introducing Mercedes Benz The Move Live The Moment.


A fragrance for men in motion


Beauty and fragrance trends are undoubtedly influenced by our surroundings and the state of the world, and it’s no surprise that the past couple of years spent in a pandemic, had a major impact on product development.


After an unprecedented period, in an increasingly changing world, we are entering an era of transformation which will be an intense period of challenges. For 2022, Mercedes Benz realized the urgent need to take advantage of the moment, to act to draw a new horizon that is freer and adapted to today's reality. If the past few years taught us anything, it was to live in the moment.


Always at the forefront of innovation, Mercedes Benz is proud to introduce their new masculine scent: The Move Live The Moment Eau de Parfum. A more intense version of the original Mercedes Benz The Move fragrance, Live The Moment embodies movement, modernity, the desire for enjoyment and the act of living in the moment.

What’s in a name?

To live the moment means being conscious, aware and present with all of your senses. It means enjoyment, living life fully and doing what makes you happy. The Move Live The Moment Eau de Parfum embodies this way of thinking, and is a fragrance for the NOW.


The perfumer

The fragrance was created by master perfumer Dominique Ropion, who was also the nose behind the original Mercedes Benz The Move fragrance.


“I created this fragrance as a wish to imagine a fougère pushed over its limits. The timeless fougère structure made of bergamot, sage, geranium and moss is shaken up with a flash of ginger on top. As the fragrance evolves, the sensuality of patchouli and above all the warmth of benzoin bring a new dimension to it all, round and opulent.” - Dominique Ropion


Ropion has created a refreshing, addictive, gourmand take on the original The Move fragrance, with the objection of “Pushing fougère to the max.” It was with this concept in mind that he set about structuring Live the Moment, layering moss, bergamot, sage, and geranium shot through with a flash of ginger, topped by sensual patchouli and wrapped in benzoin to lend warmth, opulence, and a voluptuous finish to the scent. Live The Moment is a double play on revitalizing freshness set over powerful, oriental woody base notes.
