Cartier Eau de Cartier Essence de Bois description

Eau de Cartier Essence de Bois is a resplendent violet-based perfume, despite its name. There is no wood in this fragrance, only layers of violets, lavender, spices, and musk - with a soft hint of bitter citrus at the top.

It is a smooth, soothing scent, wearable both day and night with ease. A touch of oud in the heart firms up the florals nicely, without depriving you of their velvety softness.

Smells amazing, but doesn't last long
I love the initial smell! A little spice, a little floral and each note starts off strong. It only took a few hours for me to start looking for the smells again though. I wish this would last longer - I had to spray a few more times throughout the day to be noticeable again.

Strong when you first spray. 1 or 2 sprays is good enough. Lighter on the skin. Last a good 5-6 hours. A bit strong at first but it settles. Wouldn’t buy the whole bottle.

The accent is good, clean but very nonspecific. Just like a clean smelling soap. Not bad but not what I would expect from Cartier. This is just ok.

Does Not Last All Day
At first I was very excited to use this fragrance because of the luxurious connotation with the brand name, but after a week of using it I was not happy. The scent last only a few MINUTES and does not stick. I tried spraying on the bodies “hot spots” but that did not work. I am looking forward to getting a different scent this month

Cologne Vibes
My first scent bird very very exciting. I enjoyed the Eau de Cartier perfume but it was a bit too strong. Now I don’t mean the scent on my body lasted very long and was strong, I mean it smelled like a men’s cologne. Probably won’t be opting for that again. Otherwise people around me enjoyed it- so it wasn’t totally bad.

I used it up
Me and my husband really enjoyed this scent. He asked me to wear it so often, I used the entire bottle within 2 weeks of me receiving it in the mail. I only wish it lasted on my skin longer. I felt like the scent disappeared very quickly. I think that attributed to me using so much so quickly. I had to reapply too often. Other than that, it’s a great scent. Worth a try for sure. Enjoy! ;)
