It was time to capture a life full of fresh early mornings, Petit grain, FRESH HERBS at the dawn of intentions. Everything seemed possible – love, creativity, faith. The time had come to embrace the day with IRIS clear-eyed confidence, to fly or walk in the first glimmers of a spring of existence. The sheer newness was just waiting to be explored like an undiscovered continent shrouded in hope and promises to indulge a little longer, as long as all remained quiet. Prolonging, preserving the moment: the promised hour by Cartier. An eiderdown of sandalwood perfume leaves the night behind without affronting sleep. Outside, I sense, a veil of MUSK, a scent of my own – that of my destiny unfolding, of an adventure anxious to take place.
This collection bestows carte blanche to the creativity of our In-House Perfumer, Mathilde Laurent. It is a tribute both to the History of Perfumery and the Art of Perfume, an exploration of the Story of Scents and specially selected ingredients. La Treizième Heure has been honoured with two prestigious FIFI awards. Each Heure de Parfum is an expression of the Cartier olfactory style.
