Cartier Les Heures de Cartier: L’Heure Folle X EDT Perfume Review

Cartier L'Heure Folle perfume

Cartier has Les Heures de Parfum Collection. It’s a collection of more “exclusive” perfumes (AKA in fewer doors). I’ve tried quite a few of them and I’m actually surprised by how many of them that I like. For example, I like L’Heure Folle, a fruity (sans florals) fragrance.

L’Heure Folle is sulfuric with grapefruit and currants. The opening is like freshly squeezed lemon juice mixed with grenadine (sugary pomegranate). And this may sound boring to you, but it isn’t to me. This is a fruity scent… Continue reading

EauMG’s Fall 2014 Fragrance Wants

I’ve decided to write down which perfumes I would like for autumn and here they are:

fall wants 2014

Roxana Illuminated Perfumes Fig. 1 Noir – It’s a dark, deep patchouli. A patchouli for hardcore patchouli addicts. A patchouli that intimidates all the other patchoulis. Full review.

Cartier La Panthère – I admit that I want this for the bottle. It also helps that I like how it smells. The only reason that I haven’t purchased it yet is that I’m holding out for the parfum…but I may… Continue reading | 17 Comments

Cartier La Panthere EDP Perfume Review

Cartier Panthere Perfume

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

When I first saw the bottle of Cartier La Panthère online, I had to talk myself out of buying it unsniffed. This is as close as I’m ever going to get to owning anything from the La Panthère line. I have to say that my expectations for the fragrance itself were rather low, I had a feeling this one is all about the packaging. I mean, it could smell like nothing and people would still buy… Continue reading | 14 Comments

Cartier Eau de Cartier Essence d’Orange EDT Fragrance Review

Cartier Essence d'Orange

Mainstream Monday: Sniffing a Popular Perfume

Sometimes you just really like a fragrance. You can’t really explain why, but you just like it. Cartier Essence d’Orange is one of those fragrance for me.

Essence d’Orange opens with a refreshing bergamot and orange with supple musks. Essence d’Orange is not a sharp or bright citrus. It’s a “soft citrus” that reminds me of orange infused cotton. The overall feel of Essence d’Orange is cosmetic reminding me of orange dusting powder. And there’s a bit of… Continue reading | 12 Comments

Cartier Baiser Volé EDP Perfume Video Review

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

Cartier Baiser Vole EDPCartier Baiser Volé is a pretty, powdery yet green lily perfume. It’s a pretty good mainstream find. And the bottle is very luxurious. So, it gets extra points for that.

Baiser Volé opens as a green lily. It’s crisp and reminds me a little of freshly cut grass with dew. This is an “obvious” lily fragrance, you get that from the  beginning. This lily isn’t heavy but it does have those notes of peppered ham that lilies… Continue reading | 9 Comments
