If the Panthère perfectly embodies the history of the Cartier brand , it originates with Jeanne Toussaint, a “Parisian casserole” who became the mistress of Louis Cartier. Because of her impetuous character, Jeanne Toussaint was nicknamed the Panther and this animal, feline and feminine soon became the emblem of the Cartier brand. The brand’s first fragrance was launched in 1981 with Must. Among the brand’s great olfactory successes, we note Baiser Volé, La Panthère, L’Envol and Declaration. Fresh, sparkling and sensual, Declaration is the star masculine fragrance of the 90s.
Cartier declaration, between authenticity and generosity
The racy composition of Declaration Cartier
In 1988, the Cartier house presented Declaration, a masculine fragrance that sounds like a moment of truth. Here, the Cartier brand surpasses itself by creating its own cadence. Declaration of Cartier is the fragrance of a true, joyful and sophisticated man. Like all the perfumes of the Cartier house, the Declaration bottle is a jewel in its own right. Slender and elegant, it resembles a tower of glass. The top of the case imposes a cutaway drawing a heart symbol of love in full transparency, symbol of a declaration.
Finally, the bottle is fitted with a most sophisticated metal clasp. Here, Cartier signs a creation that evokes its primary know-how, namely jewelry. The composition takes off on the dynamism, with the presence of bergamot and sweet orange. Its heart combines mugwort, cardamom and juniper. The trail is as virile as it is sensual and combines vetiver, cedar wood, birch, oak moss and white musks.
One night’s statement marks a most romantic date
The spicy and magical notes of One Night’s Declaration
In 2012, Cartier presented a variation with Declaration of an Evening . Here, day has given way to night and the moment seems to be conducive to the most beautiful of declarations. The moment oscillates between romanticism and mystery and we can smell a perfume of amorous lightness. Declaration of an Evening portrays us a fantasized man, the one that we meet and that we idealize the time of a mad look, the time of an unforgettable moment.
Declaration of an Evening is an intense, even explosive, fragrance by Mathilde Laurent, which begins with very spicy notes of pepper and cumin. The heart is more feminine thanks to the presence of rose, associated for the occasion with nutmeg as well as aromatic notes. The sensual base finally takes on sandalwood.
Essence statement, to tell yourself the things that matter
The Power of Essence Statement Notes
In 2001, Cartier presented us Declaration Essence , a variation of Declaration released in 1998. Here, everything is played on the register of emotions. Statement Essence is a true fragrance that invites you to say the things that matter. Declaration is a fragrance of truth and the fragrance is intended for men who are not afraid to assert their desires and their character.
Declaration Essence offers metallic and powerful tones that electrify us throughout the fragrance. The latter takes off on the freshness of mandarin, associated with neroli and enhanced by mugwort and coriander. The heart is all-powerful and combines cardamom, black pepper contrasted by the floral and powdery notes of jasmine and iris. The base is very sensual, because it associates cedar, amber, leather and vetiver.
A truly authentic fragrance, Declaration of Cartier was created in 1998. Delicate, but nevertheless imposing, Declaration places love at the center of emotions. The different variations will offer us powerful, romantic aspects, but the emotions remain, whatever happens, the reflection of what really matters.
