Cartier is one of the most lustworthy luxury brands in the world! With it’s iconic red signature, everyone wants to own a piece of Cartier. Whether it’s a style-statement Cartier watch, a piece of fine jewellery (I have my heart set on the Love Bracelet), or a Cartier fragrance that just makes you feel expensive and fancy whenever you spritz a mist of designer indulgence.
If you’re looking to add a little piece of Cartier luxury to your life, their newest fragrance, Cartier La Panthère Eau De Parfum Légère will have you feeling every bit the Cartier fantasy! Besides an amazing bottle design and a beautiful story behind it, it smells lovely too! Read on and discover why I love it…
This fragrance is the brand’s latest version of La Panthere EDP from 2014, following the same beautiful story from Cartier’s heritage.
La Panthère is named after Louis Cartier’s muse, Jeanne Toussaint. It means, “The Panther” and it was a nickname she acquired from her good friend, Coco Chanel around 1938.
Toussaint later, in 1933 became Director of Fine Jewellery for the brand and the Panther has lived on in so many of Cartier’s most iconic designs. You know what I’m talking about right? The Panthère de Cartier rings that retail for an insane amount of money!
The bottle of Cartier La Panthère Eau De Parfum Légère reveals the jewel of 2016! Faceted like a Cartier diamond and revealing the soul of the Panthère, which is sculpted on the inside and outside of the bottle. The bottle is so special, that around 4000 bottles were thrown away before the bottle design was approved.
The scent is luminous and delicate, with notes of Gardenia and Musk.
– a perfume that reflects a liberated, passionate woman –
It smells sophisticated, elegant, luxurious and sparkles, like really good, expensive French Champagne.
When I attended the Cartier Fragrance press launch a few month’s ago, we were indulged not only a gorgeous French setting in the heart of Jozi, but also got a chance to experience all the Cartier fragrances that we in South Africa, can now get our hands on!
If you’re a Cartier fragrance lover of the past, you’ll know that finding these gems was not an easy task as they were not officially available in South Africa. But that’s all changed and you can now get your hands on a number of iconic Cartier scents (for men and women) and enjoy the whole Cartier scent experience.
I say experience, because purchasing a Cartier fragrance from a Cartier counter is more than just buying a fragrance… You get an experience with your bottle, by taking home your new perfume in a beautiful, red Cartier shopping bag. And, discovering the scents at a Cartier Counter, takes you on a magical journey as you get to whiff the scent through Cartier’s mythical little red box.
Sounds pretty amazing doesn’t it?
