High luxury name Cartier will launch a new women's fragrance called Cartier de Lune from Januray 2011. It takes its name from a bejeweled theme, in particular a necklace in gray gold with gray and white pearls, revealing what looks like muguet bell or tulip motifs inserted with diamonds (please see after the jump.) Pearls surround the bottle cap. The name is also a word-play upon the French expression "quartier de lune" which means moon crescent...
The fragrance visibly ties in with the Radiant, Pristine Bouquet Trend that we highlighted at the end of last year. It looks like 2011 will be the year of crystalline notes thanks to a consistent current of sensitivity for light, space and transparency, which creates this ebb. Cartier de Lune was composed by in-house perfumer Mathilde Laurent. It is said to be a perfume "which mixes the sparkle of the moon with the softness of flowers."
Top notes are luminous with pink pepper and juniper berries. Heart notes are a bouquet of white flowers with honeysuckle, wild rose, cyclamen, bindweed, lily of the valley. Base notes are musky and woody.
Prices: $75, $98. Available for pre-order at Neiman Marcus.
