My Declaration
I really do need to explore more from the house of Cartier, but what better way to start than this Jean-Claude Ellena pillar from 1998. Citrus, spice, woods, and yet still unique on the designer market. I hope you anjoy and thanks

My father's fragrance...
... Déclaration was one of my father's scents. The bottle has remained as a memory of him and stands in front of the picture frame that adorns my favourite photo of him, where he holds me in his arms as a 2 year old.
And just like this photo, this scent speaks to me. Warm through and through, not pushy and yet so meaningful.
For me, this scent is just like my father was... Protective, proud, warm...
Spicy orange, so simple and maybe that's why it's so great.
I think this fragrance is for very special men. Men of the sort, hard skin, soft core. Who don't talk much because they talk with their eyes. Hiding smiles and not being able to hide them.

Love on the first Riecher
After Antaeus in the 80s, only one fragrance managed to completely capture me on the spot, and that was Déclaration - at the beginning of the millennium in a 2 ml tube thrown behind. It's too "special" to be everybody's darling, and on top of that it probably doesn't develop equally well on every skin, but it seemed to me from the beginning like it was only made for me. Anyone who thinks they can find pleasure in Déclaration on the basis of the ingredients should not be irritated by negative assessments and test the scent on the skin. Bad luck if it goes wrong, but a great experience if it "fits". Pleasing for vegans: according to Cartier customer service, Déclaration does not contain any substances of animal origin.

Nice Designer
Declaration is proof that fragrance homes can produce quality perfumes. Voyage d'Hermes smells identical to this. However there are a couple of problems I have with the EDT version of Voyage.. Longevity is #1 & then it does not project much. Declaration on the other hand has very good projection & longevity.

It can be worn spring, summer, & fall in my opinion. That is where this fragrance really shines. Ginger, spices & citruses make a nice masculine quality scent. I would without a shadow of a doubt take this over Voyage d'Hermes.. Not saying that it is a bad scent, but compared to this it is not worthy. Cartier makes some of the best colognes in the world. If you have not tried this than stop messing around & get to it! ENJOY!

Autan+ ...
Terre d'Hermes au tres fraiche+Voyage.

The question is, who was there first? The dot probably goes to Autan.

Nevertheless, rather smell of mosquito spray than be one of these mosquitoes ...

It's more than obvious that Ellena likes always to have in his portfolio something like Terre d'Hermes or Declaration. The twins of the same perfumer. In my opinion compared to Terre d'Hermes, Declaration is much more full bodied, substantial, with more note interplay and less synthetic. When Declaration hit the marker, it was the avantgarde of new perfume breed. Masterful put together, very balanced and harmonious. Role model for Terre d'Hermes or Narciso Rodriguez Bleu Noir. Great stuff.

Of Radiance and Filth
Déclaration, to me, is a master class in the powerful depth and utter, crystalline clarity that signifies the Ellena olfactory aesthetic. The opening smells of a bracing, exhilarating bigarade laced with just a whisper of artemesia. As the brilliant citrus warms on the skin I begin to pick up what I can only describe as the indecent spiciness of sun warmed after one's been working outside on a balmy summer's day. This could be attributed to either the citrus itself or the scintillating, radiant cumin. This joyous raunch intensifies for some time until the composition begins to become duskier, a creature of the nighttime. The citrus becomes almost unctuous among the simmering spices. What impresses me so much is that among all of these beauteous transitions it remains lucid, ebullient and surprisingly dry. It is at the same time both erotic and unpolluted, labyrinthine and boundless in simplicity. A testament to the expertise and vision of Monsieur Ellena.

Bon! not B.O.
I am a very girly girl, and I wear this in Spring, when I want my senses to be on high alert, with everything pert, alive, and *wait for it* organized! Yes, this scent makes you feel organized and focused, as if everything around you is in its proper place. To my nose, DECLARATION is a clean lime romp in the grass. A crisp white wine paired with tart green apples that leaves you salivating... on a man or woman, truly.

Elegant!
Declaration is a great fragrance, spicy and refreshing, where the cardamom plays the main role.

Smells classy, it's suitable for every occasion.

It's my office scent: subtle and elegant, and not offensive.

Be careful: sometimes smells like body odour, which aint a problem for me.

Sillage, lasting power and projection are medium.

This is one I want to love. But I can’t. My nose just doesn’t like the cumin. It’s not listen in the notes, but its there and its stout.

This stuff is so magical and the grandfather of Terre d'Hermes and Voyage d'Hermes. If you can embrace the cumin blast then this is amazing!

An honest fragrance. I remark an orange opening and a strong cardamom development followed by an anonymous drydown. Classy but not special!

The feeling I get from this is "classy chef" - spices, seasonings, but upscale. Pleasant, but I can't really see it being used for romance.
