I love you, honeybear
There's a trend specially in niche to create a scent that evoques a fake sophistication and pretentiousness. I don't know why but people go crazy over that type of scent.

They usually say that's "niche quality" which I don't agree at all, mainly because there isn't such thing as "niche quality". Niche means availability and price, not quality.
Don't get me wrong, I love many niche fragrances and indie ones, as much as I love designer ones, as long as they smell good, are unique and well blended. But the hype around overrated niche brands these days is enormous.

This Cartier is a true high quality woody fragrance and more unique that many out there (as many other fragrances from this slightly underrated brand are). This one is focused on honey and fresh violet leaves. Not a tipical combination but a successful one. It starts out very fresh and sweet with a big dose of violet leaves and ambrosia (honey). The gaiac wood is melted in the honey accord, giving a slightly creamy and woody tone to the composition. The evolution is smooth and barely exists. The fragrance become more airy, less sweet and with a touch of musk in the drydown but nothing crazy.

Overall, an airy, fresh and sweet woody composition, with an aura of elegance around. Very long lasting (8+ hours), and completely unisex in opinion.

It's unique, interesting, mature yet modern, and a must buy for people who apreciate Woody floral musk compositions or just want to have a great modern masculine fragrance.

Bloody Amazing!
This is a 10 / 10 for me! It’s a love at first sniff fragrance. Don’t come across those often. Probably my best fragrance purchase in 2020. The honey sparkles and pops off my skin, against the wood and florals. I get gentle whiffs of the honey as the day goes by. Bloody brilliant. This is my first fragrance from the house of Cartier and won’t be my last from the house! Amazing. I wonder if this what heaven smells like? Lol

Classy, classic, floral, honey...
I got this fragrance in the beginning of 2020. I asked a coupon for a niche fragrance store for Christmas, but instead got a coupon for our local designer fragrance store. A bit bummed I went out to check what they had. Being bored by the 4 scent profiles you get in 80% of the designer fragrances, I smelled this Cartier. I always liked the Cartier fragrances, they always are quality, have class, and are not too focused on the craze of the moment.

In the beginning, I was kind of surprised by it. You get the iris, but not in a "I want to sell a lot of perfume so I make my own version of Dior Homme". It is not powdery at all, but elegant iris, with a very classy honey note that stays kind of fresh through the life of the fragrance.

There is a very subtle smokey guaiac wood supporting it.

This is a fragrance that is ideal for fall and winter. It is not loud, it is a classy fragrance, but it has a really good fragrance experience. You get a nice scent bubble for about a whole day. So longevity is good. Nu beast projection, but this is not what most wearers of this type of classy fragrance seak.

This is a more mature fragrance, but not old smelling. I would say 30 and up.

One of my favorite designers at the moment and can be had for a steal at the discounters. Contrary to a lot of reformulated designers that can be had at the discounters, this one is still high quality. I guess the reason that you can have it for cheap is that it is not a great commercial success.

Oh, honey!
Before I come to the description of this fragrance, I would like to briefly explain the circumstances that led me to own a bottle: The dear SctenPhantom sent me a still well filled bottle completely free of charge. Unsolicited on my part and completely selfless on his part! You can only experience this at Parfumo, thanks again for that!! :-)

I first came into contact with the fragrance through ScentPhantom, through his commentary on L'Envol. Then I read "Honey" and thought "Fie Deiwel!" Honey goes with me only in tea and really nowhere else, not on bread, not in milk and certainly not at all as "scent". It happened that I came to a perfume purchase to a sample of the Stöffchen and could make my own picture apart from the fragrances listed here. And yes, unfortunately, there is honey in here, a good deal of honey.
With Viking and Royal Mayfair, I now have two fragrances in my olfactory portfolio that have rose as a clear component. Not only has Rose not been able to convince me as a fragrance component, but she really repulsed me. Until I came upon the above scents. The rose is so beautifully integrated there that, supported or cushioned by all the other components, it looks beautiful. It's the same with the honey in this Cartier. The honey

The top note is not quite mine, as honey is too much in focus as a single player. After about ten minutes, darker tones and great musk are added, turning the honeybee hive into a sweet-woody floral masterpiece. The drydown is in my opinion the long lasting highlight of this great fragrance.
L'Envol has a classic smell in the broadest sense, but the honey gives it a companion that makes it stand out from the mass of classic men's fragrances. I almost imagine that I smell a very dark dior`sch Fahrenheit in a positive sense. Extremely delicious.

An extremely pleasing, strongly developing, faithful companion, which is most likely to be worn with "proper" clothing. L' Envol I do not get tired quickly, but as a leisure fragrance it would be too "bossy" for me.

Thanks for reading

L'Envol review
A relatively recent release from Cartier, I was very interested to try this well-liked scent. As I have enjoyed a lot of offerings from this house, my hopes were high in that I would be at least smelling something of quality

The emperor's new clothes
When successful companies leave their successful paths and do not, as an old proverb recommends, stick to their last as shoemakers, this is often not crowned with success. Especially if you try to gain a foothold in a completely different profession (here: the world of fragrances) than the usual one (here: the world of high-quality jewellery).

As for Cartier. Has this succeeded again and again in the past and already in the last millennium fragrance creations such as Santos (based on the watches of the same name), Santos Sport and Pasha (which in my opinion is too badly removed on this website) have fascinated me and made me the wearer of the respective.

Now something new again. L'Envol Parfum. The bottle alone is worth seeing as it stands out pleasantly from the mass of inconspicuous, uniform and sometimes even loveless vessels. A statement, an eye catcher, a curiosity maker. They have always been able to do this with Cartier, extravagant flacons, jewellery designers who are not satisfied with an average result. Full score from me for this creation.

Disadvantage: such an appearance raises expectations. Just like with a proper looking person, the curiosity wants to be satisfied, what there is to discover behind the beautiful scenery. And where people's clothes fall to see if the bowl keeps what it promises, the moment of truth has come for a scent when the sprayer is activated.

The start almost blows me away, the fragrance is so intense. The mixture thunders my olfactory receptors to such an extent that I first have to take a breath. But what mixture? Smell it a second time, I discover amber notes. And feel easily reminded of Colonia Ambra of Acqua di Parma. With the big difference that with AdP everything runs a little more discreetly, more withdrawn. Here Ambra is the dominator and it's big time. After about 10 minutes, I hear slightly woody echoes that go very well with the amber. And that's it from my point of view, too. Amber, wood, ready. Sounds little, but is de facto very much, we are talking about a rather opulent scent. The rest is very linear. After two hours, it becomes a little sweeter, after which the previous note reasserts itself. A bit disappointing for me in the drydown, I expected more, it sounds more or less arbitrary and irrelevant.

I see the performance as shared. While the Sillage probably doesn't beam anyone away now (I didn't provoke any reaction in my - due to my scent spleen - quite sensitized environment), the shelf life of approx. 10 hours on the skin is quite good. The scent itself leaves well-trodden paths, I think that's good per se if a company has the courage to do something new, but I don't like to see a big litter a la Santos. A new jewel in the scented sky looks different, except for the bottle.

Honey & iris
This fragance is an almost lineal honey & iris scent. You can feel both notes during most of the duración of the perfume. Patchouli, musk and gaiac Wood un the background giving a Woody and masculine vibe yo the perfume. It is nice to use at evening during cole or template weather. Not very good for nightout sonce It doent porject too much, It is more as a skin scent most of the time. A simple but very nice creation of laurente for cartier. Nice option for iris lovers.

L'ENVOL
It is possible to notice that from the bottle to the advertisement the jewerly brand Cartier spared no cost in what seems to be its new pillar within the male universe of fragrances - L'Envol de Cartier. It is rare to see a brand investing in this way for a public other than the female, but perhaps for the way the perfume seems to position the brand is targeting the users of the great sales success of its competitor Hermès. But the main difference is that while Terre d'Hermes was constructed as an iteration of the Declaration with a very clear woody mineral direction, L'envol is ambivalent from the target audience to the perfume itself.

The mental image that came to me as I reflected on L'Envol was that of an optical illusion figure that has several figures hidden within it, waiting to be revealed according to the perception of each one. L'Envol is both a fragrance of transparent honey and a perfume of sweet and iris or a violet scent with a light touch of leather a la Fahrenheit. Everything is within its aroma and it is curious how you can perceive each of these facets every time you apply L'Envol on the skin. They lead to a base that is also multifaceted and although harmonic is ambivalent in its nuances. Sometimes the mineral materials dominate and seem to produce a similar base between the Terre d'Hermes and the Marc Jacobs Bang. Other times, there is a slightly musky and foul musky that produces a ghostly touch of oud. Or was it perhaps a well-built use of Gaiac wood?
L'Envol just seems to want to be inconclusive, familiar enough that it is easy for its nuances to be grasped but distinct and complex enough to stand by itself. Its ambivalence certainly makes me think of perfume that has great potential to please the female audience and be a shared creation. It is a fragrance that at the very least requires a little more time to appreciate the beauty of its identity - which is both positive and negative points, depending on the expectations of each one to it.

Iris miel
Honeyed iris on a bare untreated wooden table.
Unisex but not girly, iris is big right now in the men's fragrance world yet this keeps itself grounded with musk/patchouli?

Good for various activities year 'round.

If you're into honey then step up and give this a try.

I hate the pathetic comments that some reviewers say "It is niche quality". But in the case of L'Envol, I have to say that myself!

Simple but very good scent. L'Envoi is all about honey with iris and a touch of musk. Sweet, soapy, light. There is nothing to dislike here.

Beautiful flask and amber color juice.
Honey sweetened! Its earthy and a bit animalic due to musk and patchouli. Very commendable perfume.

Starts green (violets?) and beautifully versatile. Then an old-fashioned musk-patchouli-combo comes and spoils the impression a little bit.

The iris and musk combo with honey-patchouli is like an old lady in a headshop... But nice.
