Rosemary green and lavender blue… An old nursery rhyme leads us back to a sprightly medicinal garden springing with wild aromatic herbs. Wise plants picked to cheer body and soul. The apothecary’s prescription: an infusion of joy and courage, lentiscus, a bracing cure for the blues, THYME, a secret antidote for intoxications gone sour, instilled with wild herbs, verbena. And so we are born anew, in a halo of good-natured gaiety, with a teasing lash of ABSINTH green, a calm waft of lavender, when the virtuous hour chases the clouds from our spirits in a soothing ALMOND embrace… Thyme and sweet marjoram, hyssop and rue.
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.
