Delices De Cartier by Cartier, Delices de Cartier is a deliciously layered gourmand fragrance for women that pairs sweet fruit and floral notes with exotic undertones of incense and spice.
The opening is a bright, uplifting effusion of tart candied cherry, rosy pink pepper and the aromatic citrus nuances of bergamot. As the scent begins to warm on the skin, intoxicating sheer florals come to the fore, blending powdery, woody fresh tones of violet flower and freesia with sweetly narcotic jasmine blossom. The finishing notes shadow the vibrancy of the introduction, fusing the dark almond and tobacco profile of tonka bean with warm vanilla, amber and balsamic sweet sandalwood to produce luxurious, sensuous finale.
Delices was created by perfumer Christine Nagel and first launched in 2006. This French jewelry house was founded by Louis-Francois Cartier in 1847. The brand introduced its line of fragrances in 1981, and has collaborated with designers Jean-Claude Ellena, Mathilde Laurent, Alberto Morillas, Nathalie Feisthauer, Jean-Jacques Diener, Jacques Cavallier, Jean Guichard, Christine Nagel and Mark Buxton.
