L'Envol de Cartier

The folks at Cartier were kind enough to send me their beautiful (and also new) masculine fragrance called L'Envol De Cartier. Inspired by the mythical ambrosia of the Gods of Olympus (hence its color) and Alberto Santos-Dumont (one of the Maison's greatest legends), this fragrance immediately makes the wearer aspire to success and greatness. It's breathtaking to see the level of detail and craftsmanship put into the bottle.

With its airy-woody nectar with Gaiac wood and honey notes, the fragrance certainly reveals a spirit of energy and passion. Since the bottle is so photogenic, I was very interested in playing with its transparency, reflections and just a little bit of harsh light to make it look more dramatic. L'Envol De Cartier is -without a doubt- an essential fragrance to keep.
