Cartier released a new version of the original Baiser Volé (2011), a lily composition signed by in-house perfumer Mathilde Laurent. It is called Baiser Volé Essence de Parfum.
The perfumer explains that she envisioned someone getting closer to the calyx of the flower to inhale its at once soft and voluptuous perfume. Indeed, the initial olfactory impression is that of a hyper-realistic lily.
The composition sees the addition of vanilla bourbon, of its bean and seeds facets.
"In this Esssence de Parfum, one senses a lily in full bloom. It is a very soft smell, deep and voluptuous, as if you managed to approach your nose towards the heart of the calyx. The open flower offers us its sensual and vanillic perfume while neverthless remaining alive and light."
Available in 40 ml and 80 ml eau de parfum.
