There are moments like this, when all can be transformed, when it is impossible to distinguish real from unreal. The calculated seduction of leather notes, MATÉ, birch, the yearning of NARCISSUS, bergamot shifting between shadow and light. This is the time to take a deep breath and brave the infinite and patchouli adventure. Here, where the thirteenth hour slips past, sensual VANILLA fatal as an emotion upon my skin, the exquisitely dizzying unknown. Then, true can no longer be distinguished from false, or night from day, and we surrender to the realm of the vague, the chiaroscuro of Nature that renders all things unique and possible.
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.
