French Maison Cartier is famed for its panther motif, present on its jewelry, accessories and fragrance works, symbolizing femininity, mystery and elegance. This was repeated with the launch in 2014 of La Pantère, and now, next month, the Maison presents a new version of that iconic perfume: La Panthère Parfum. A ‘feline-floral’ perfume of gardenia enriched with osmanthus, bringing hints of apricot, and patchouli with chypre tones.
With La Panthère Parfum, Cartier’s in-house perfumer Mathilde Laurent created a richer and more intense interpretation of this contemporary chypre perfume. Gardenia, as the dominant floral note of the composition, has been explored and highlighted in a new way, and warmed by the shades of apricot stemming from the osmanthus flower. The perfumer doubled the musk and softened the chypre character to evoke the depth and softness of a panther’s fur.
The iconic signature glass flacon on which the face of the panther can be seen is decorated with black details (for the two larges sizes) in the new version. Cartier La Panthère Parfum is available as a 25, 50 and 75ml Perfume at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Cartier.
