Heh heh hey, my title rhymes a bit, but maybe it sounds a bit stuffy, but more about that later. Soo, welcome to a new fragrance comment from me. Most of you already know this fragrance, Eau de Cartier, or at least have seen it on the shelves from time to time. A mainstream scent that could often be ignored, because especially perfumas and perfumos are always looking for newer scents and probably the "normal people" out there in the world are more likely to use other scents. At least I have that feeling, as I hardly see any people at the Cartier stands. But I think that Cartier already has some really nice scents to offer.
Anyway, I got a sample of this fragrance from the dear Flaconesse, for which I am of course very grateful to her, even if she sometimes writes cheeky answers to my comments :D
The fragrance is perfect for warm days, as it comes across very fresh, but as always, you can find out in detail in my fragrance description. So let's get right to the fragrance!
Oh, and Flaconesse and you other ladies: You see, I can write despite warm days without hormonal fluctuations and I won't describe in detail how I saw a really cute girl in the distance queue in front of the pharmacy the other day, wearing a really short skirt, which blew dreamily during a light breeze... and no, these are no dirty fantasies... that just looks graceful and sexy, ha! …. DD
(really bad that nobody here believes me, argh... :D)
The fragrance begins fresh with citrus and general green notes. By general I mean that you can smell this kind of green scent if you take (green) leaves in your hand, for example, and rub or even crush them between your fingers. It's a very nice scent that is created, similar to cut grass, at least if you like such scents.
Then you can smell the yuzu, which could have been a bit more sparkling, but it still has a nice smell and thus also fits to the fresh charisma of the fragrance. The violets also come into play quickly and radiate a nice, soft and powdery sweetness. Later it continues to smell mainly violet, although this is now more the main scent, as the yuzu becomes weaker and the green notes lose even more intensity. There is also a tart note, lavender, which at first seems to become more intense, but then turns into something as strong as violet.
At the base, the fragrance is the same as before, but the sweetish notes are a little stronger, which is due to the fact that the floral and sweet scents are now a little more reminiscent of tuberoses or similar flowers, in addition to violets. A little later, the background of the fragrance is still a bit woody, but all in all it remains sweet-floral-fresh. A nice scent.
The Sillage and the durability:
The Sillage is rather weak, so that one could perceive the scent, if at all, only from close up for a rather short time. Short is also the shelf life, because I could not smell it for that long. I think it was about three to four hours maximum, but the scent became quite weak shortly before half of this time.
The bottle is cylindrical and clear. The brand name is printed on it in large cursive letters, which looks nice. The neck is chrome-plated and a chrome disc has been added just before the spray head. The cap is a simple closure, so the bottle looks even better without the plastic cap. A simple but nicely made bottle.
Oookay, I'm betting that this scent will attract the attention of most people inconsequential. However, I think it smells quite nice the way it is, and it's a wonderful summer scent with its great fresh notes. It's a simple fragrance, but it's also more for the day, work or leisure. A fragrance that always goes on warm days and where you could just reach for the bottle without having to think about it for too long, because as I said before, it's very suitable for warm days.
I always find it a pity with such scents that they are so weak on the chest, but that's the way it is with most summer scents. Therefore, one can theoretically fill this scent into a small sample sprayer or pocket atomizer in order to spray it up from time to time.
A test is not necessarily a must now, but you could still "sacrifice" an arm for it at some point, because the smell is not bad, as I said.
Well, that's it. Yes I know, it's getting warmer and warmer now, so everybody wants to get out a lot more, but still take care of yourselves, distance rules, mask etc... you know what to do. Hence my title, even if you don't necessarily have to stay at home, don't get careless (and therefore stupid!),... we don't fuck up the summer because of our stupid actions! DD
As I said, watch out, especially now that many shops, including restaurants, are open again due to relaxation. Otherwise have a nice evening and see you next time :)
