HAVE YOU EVER SMELLED THE SCENT OF A DIAMOND ?
With her last creation, Mathilde Laurent, perfumer at the Maison Cartier, pays tribute to Cartier jeweler’s expertise. She transposes the diamond fire to the olfactory realm.
Like the fire of a diamond, Cartier Carat brings together the seven colours of the rainbow in a single, clear and pure white scent. Violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red are represented here by violet, iris, hyacinth, ylang, daf fodil, honeysuckle and tulip. With this Eau de Parfum, Cartier, like a subtle magician, fractures the light in a myriad of floral facets.
Cartier Carat is an invitation to pluck the flowers of the day. To sense and feel every facet of happiness as it comes, to smile and laugh at life, awake, conscious and present.
LE MOT DU PARFUMEUR
« Cartier brings diamonds to life by showcasing them so stunningly, by introducing light and making it scintillate and shimme! I wanted to create a fragrance that sparkles, alive with all the fire of a diamond. It occurred to me to apply to the fragrance the principle of diffraction: the dispersed light that appears as colourful flashes of the rainbow in a diamond. And so, I chose seven beautiful fresh flowers that come together to form a new flower, abstract but alive, like the light of a diamond.
Carat is for me a perfumistic ode to light. I am delighted to share with you my vision of fire in a fragrance, and, as Cartier does, to make the wearer sparkle and shine, with olfactory emotion. »
