Need a little luxe in your life? After a girls weekend in Aspen, I’ve been feeling very jet-set. Being on the mountain and visiting all the couture stores made me feel tres chic. Note: I will say I found Aspen to be super-friendly and not one bit snooty. So no surprise upon my return, I keep reaching for my new bottle of Cartier La Panthere.
The newest from Cartier Fragrance is inspired the iconic Cartier Panther. Imagine a fierce but feminine feel. Mathilde Laurent, the in-house perfumer for Cartier channeled florals and musk for a balanced and alluring scent. Expect fruit right up front. Enjoy while you can because that strawberry/apple/apricot dries down to a gardenia balanced with more primal notes. The exotic musk and oak moss leaves a sweet, creamy spice.
While I usually like less feminine fragrances. I love La Panthere just because it is balanced enough and slightly mysterious. Not to mention, the bottle with a sculpted panther looks amazing on my bedside table.
