New Escentual Post: Cartier La Panthère Perfume Review

New from Cartier - 'La Panthère'

New from Cartier – ‘La Panthère’

It would be fair to say that I’m not a massive fan of Cartier’s perfumes. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t dislike them by any means but none of the ones that I have tried have blown me away or sent me reaching for my wallet. Enter Cartier’s latest feminine fragrance ‘La Panthère‘ – a perfume that has been created as a feline and feral take on gardenia that pays homage to the brand’s mascot.

Whilst La Panthère is a bit too modern and clean to be classified as an animalic in a way that would be pleasing to perfume lovers, I must admit that I really enjoy its more abstract take on the gardenia flower and it calls to mind the bright sunlight of fragrances such as Elie Saab Le Parfum and Amyris Femme.

  1. I think Cartier did a great job with La Panthere. They managed to create a scent that is both mainstream but certainly not dull. I was ready to dismiss this completely but after reading Victoria’s review on Boi de Jasmin I went out to try it. I liked it enough to pick up a small bottle. And what a gorgeous bottle it is! Love the stylistic panther head.

  2. Oh wow, that flacon is indeed spectacular ! – Unfortunately the ‘fume itself doesn’t sound much like my kinda thing, BUT I’m certainly contemplating purchasing one of those beauts just for that bottle alone – it’s just GORJUSSS !!! 🙂

      • Nuttin’ wrong with ‘velvety & pretty’ 🙂 – just a pity that with such a stellar name & flacon it’s doesn’t have a little more ‘grrrowl’ to go with it’s ‘purr’.
