Back in 2014, Cartier celebrated 100 years of La Panthère, the enigmatic emblematic animal that has dominated its fine jewellery and watches repertoire since. That same year, the French luxury house launched its first La Panthère Eau de Parfum, a unique feline-floral accord to reflect the liberated, passionate woman, and a tribute to its most iconic symbol.
The captivating chypre floral, born out of a radiant gardenia and velvety musk blend, has since been extended to be available in other forms including an EDT, solid perfume and a range of scented body treats. Which brings us to its latest edition, the limited-edition La Panthère EDP that’s housed in a new exclusive bottle.
Uniquely designed, the fragrance flacon is carved from the inside, a head sculpted at the right angle, a square jaw and a bevelled eye that reflects the panther and its sleek, sensual femininity and hypnotic signature. And to make it all the more special, the glass bottle has now been crystallised by the delicate gardenia petals, a nod to the fragrance’s floral note.
