Fresh oriental masterpiece
Like Luca Turin said in his book "A temple that smells like a brothel". A sweet, kinda powdery sometimes, fresh Oriental that gives some sexiness to the temple.

It opens up with a little bit of anise, an olive leaf note, carnation, grapefruit and ginger. Lot of things going on. Very creative and unique! Fresh floral, oriental (Jaipur homme is a refference although is completely different). The olive leaf and carnation combo gives this different and sexy-dirty vibe. During the opening to the mid, you'll get more Ginger and Cinnamon. In this stage there's a fresh-sweet dirtiness that is so harmonious yet sexy that i can identify as the "temple that smells like a brothel" stage.
What's great about this one is the evolution since the opening to the drydown. The fresh notes combined with the bitter and sweet ones makes it very unique and addictive!
A great Oriental with personality. In the drydown I can detect some creamy sandalwood too.
The fragrance gets more dry abeit sweet (not like the contemporary sweetness).
Again, It's a great unique and sexy fragrance that offers a unique anise-ginger-cinnamon combo with a hint of sandalwood and olive leafs in the back.
The performance is low to moderate (I get 4 to 6h on my skin with moderate projection in the first hour).
It's unfortunately discontinued but if you can find a good deal on it, grab a bottle (or two) and enjoy this masterpiece!

Gold!
The sadly discontinued yet still quite easy to find Must de Cartier pour Homme is a great scent, just this close to phenomenal. It smells irresistibly refined and sophisticated in a less conventional way than usual, it smells rich and deep but also breezy and bright, and it’s definitely quite ahead of its time while showing solid roots into classic perfumery. Basically it’s a fresh spicy-woody scent, but a rather unique one. First of all, a bit like Fendi Theorema for women, the freshness here is cleverly played on spicy notes rather than only – and predictably - on citrusy or green ones; cinnamon above all, and coriander. There’s citrus obviously, but the spiciness is equally bold and clear, albeit incredibly weightless and perfectly “tamed down” (so no worries, not an “exotic bomb”). Sandalwood is there too, supporting both the aromatic spiciness and the fresh side with its “juicy-fruity” nuances. A greenish aromatic note of what I thought may be laurel, while it must that olive tree leaf note, provides a whiff of Mediterranean. A zesty and uplifting blend, but with “flavour” and complexity. Then, the other irresistible aspect that makes Must so special to me is its base; as Turin writes in his guide, and I agree with him, there’s a subtle yet vibrant sort of animalic feel on the base that blends with the crisp refinement of cedar to create a really peculiar sort of “sophisticated dirt”, if that makes sense. Like a dusty, camphorous, musky and even almost moldy base note which provides a fantastic touch of “sweaty virility” to a really clean, almost dandified fresh-spicy-woody blend. I don’t know what it may be due to, I guess it may be a side-effect of musk and woods, but the feel is just perfect. The ensemble is really remarkable, as you get this incredibly harmonic mixture of fresh, fruity, green, spicy notes with woods, musk, “dirty” shades. Terribly classy, but also deep and substantial, even complex and slightly ambiguous. A shiny gem with a dark shade – and a “niche” personality too, as this hasn’t the slightest “designer” look to any extent (well, ok, maybe a conventional woody-amber aroma underneath). Total quality. To me it smells also completely versatile and I hardly imagine someone not liking this, so... grab one if you find it, even blind. It has only one “con” to my nose: the persistence isn’t as good as the smell.

An elegant and luxurious discontinued gem.
Must de Cartier followed the women's oriental from back in 1981. This men's version fragrance is really such a refined, classy scent. You get aniseed, mandarin orange, grapefruit... followed by cinnamon, ginger, carnation, vanilla, sandalwood & tonka bean. It is such an elegant fragrance I can see a man in a tailored suit in an exclusive high class bar in either Hong Kong or Paris or New York... wearing this beautiful, elegant smell. The most elegant fashioned-suit and an aura of wealth and confidence. It just proves that you don't have to spend so much money on a fragrance to smell rich. It is such a shame that they discontinued this fragrance. Pure class and elegance, a mysterious oriental with anise, cinnamon, ginger, cinnamon, vanilla & sandalwood. I would love to see something so elegant for men being made again by Cartier. Either way a wonderfully smooth, oriental fragrance for men, and a real shame it was discontinued. R.I.P.

Light floral...
This is a subtle skin scent that lingers for hours. It's floral and sweet in the right amount, sometimes smells like coconut.

Smells good also in women, so i consider this unisex.

Dont expect anything heavy, but a subtle and sophisticated scent that will make you feel relaxed.

As said, sillage and projection are light, while lasting power is good, around 8 hours.
