Cartier baiser vole perfume

Cartier is a brand I am most familiar with in terms of jewellery. Tell me I can't be the only one who lusts over the beautiful jewellery? I am very selective with perfumes and like to be able to test them out on the skin before committing to a big bottle, even if it is a cheaper scent, I just want to know it will actually smell nice on me before I have a full bottle to use up. This is why I find perfume samples so helpful. When I got this Cartier sample as part of the goody bag I got at the Intu Victoria centre Galentines event with Caffe Rizzoli and House of Fraser I was very excited to come home and test it out. 


The full size bottle is a sleek, elegant and simple finish that looks stunning and would make an elegant but simple addition to a vanity or dressing table. The clear oval bottle with a gold toned lid give it a touch of class and elegance which reflect the brand nicely. The sample is much more simplistic but has a excellent pray mechanism which give even distribution of the scent and a perfect amount of product for a few uses to see how you get on with it. 

The scent is described on House of fraser as featuring a bouquet of flowers , powdered vanilla tinged lily, transparent water and the freshness of a waxed leaf. I think the fragrance smells floral, with a touch of sweetness. I feel it has a lovely mature scent to it which isn't 'old' but sophisticated and reminds me of a well dressed, mature woman who is sophisticated and excelled in her field. It really did make me feel an extra touch more pristine when I was wearing it and caught the scent through the day. 

The scent lasted really well on me, it smells lovely, and really was nice to keep smelling through the day. I did top this up just after lunch, as I really like to make sure I smell fresh and don't have any scents of what I have eaten at lunch lingering on me, but I felt I could have got away without doing so had I either not had the perfume with me, or not wanted to. The perfume is a lovely scent, but I feel on me it is slightly more mature than I tend to go for on a daily basis. I have about a third of the sample left, so I am going to save it for when I go somewhere a little dessier in the evening as I think it will make a lovely evening perfume. 

The perfume is on the pricier side, but only comparable to brands like Chanel and Dior, with the 50ml retailing at £75 and the 100ml at £105 which can be found here. I think this is a lovely scent and one that would be perfect for someone who likes a mature, floral perfume, and may be one I come back to in the future, however it isn't one I feel suits my tastes and perfume collection enough at this stage to invest in.

    1. It was nice to try out a more higher end perfume without having to invest in a full bottle, such a nice way to try a perfume. x

  2. I definitely prefer fresher scents during the day but this sounds like perhaps a nice one for the evening. Never tried a Cartier perfume so might go give it a sniff!

  3. I didn't realise that Cartier made perfumes but I suppose every designer seems to have one nowadays. I recently found a box full of old perfumes so I won't be buying any more for a while, I think!

    1. I have quite a few of older ones I need to work through so I am sticking to samples for new ones at the minute, but there are a few I like that I want to add to my wishlist when I have used some more up! x

  4. I'm not really into floral scents as I prefer something a bit more musky but scent is such a personal thing! I know friends who wear certain perfumes and smell great, yet I think it smells horrible in the bottle! x

    1. I know what you mean, I find they smell different on each individual person, I think it is just down to personal preference and they way they smell on the skin! x
