Cartier De Lune by Cartier, Cartier De Lune is a 2011 woodland fragrance for women that truly captures the mystery, beauty and elegance of a forest setting. The top notes of this perfume include pink pepper and juniper berries, which work together to create a uniquely spicy-sweet introduction. These later bloom into core notes of lily-of-the-valley, cyclamen, rose and honeysuckle for warm floral-sweetness. Finally, musk and a number of woody notes make a solid base and add the perfect touch of earthiness to the whole experience.
The Cartier house was founded in 1847, and was initially known for its fine jewelry, which showed a close attention to detail that few other jewelers could match. Over the years, the business expanded to offer watches, leather goods, scarves, and eventually fragrances in 1981. Many of the fragrances reflect some of the most popular jewelry collections introduced by the family over the years, taking their names as a means of tribute to the company’s founders.
The many floral notes used in Cartier De Lune make it perfect for wear during the spring months, as well as most daytime occasions. It features a moderate wear duration, and has a soft sillage that’s notable but sure to never overwhelm.
