Summary: I must hand it to Cartier. They make the most beautiful bottles. Also, when they decided to make Delices, they were remarkably ambitious. A prominent cherry note? Danger! Cough syrup territory! Another fruity floral? Danger! Boring repetition and mindless sweetness! But Cartier avoided both those fragrant traps with Delices. The cherry comes through clearly in the top notes and it is enlivened by citrus. Itâ€™s sweet-tart, juicy and everything a cherry should be.
Summary: First few times I tried this I loved it: Fresh, clean and envigorating. Very versatile, great at the pool, for work, anything really. The problem is after a couple of days it weirdly smelled completely different on me. And it hasn't changed since, its become a heavy musky scent. Can't understand why. Shame. Might try again in future.
Summary: Bergamot, Yuzu, Coriander. Violet Flowers, Lavender, Violet Leaves. Musk, Patchouli, Blue Cedar, White Amber. Recently, I won a bottle of this in auction and having never smelled it beforehand, I fully expected to like it. I held out hope because the Cartier's I have tried or own have not let me down, regardless of whether I loved them or not. They have a certain something........... The thing I was a little apprehensive about was the implementation of violet.
Summary: Too sweet for my tastes but pretty in it's own way. I think this is a very unique fragrance a little different than typical white flowers and fruits. To me it smells like fruity marshmellows and cherries, with a slight hint of pencil lead. I want to give it 5 stars for the darling bottle but the fragrance is cloying so it gets 3 stars.
Summary: I initially really liked this fragrance, it was soft and feminine, with a hint of vanilla. I stopped liking it however, when my mother told me I smell like a grandma... so i gave it to my grandma who loves it!
Summary: I'm on the fence about this one. The top notes are beautiful. I get the yuzu, amber, and violet right away, and this combination is what I love. However, on me, the drydown leaves only spicy notes (patchouli?) with a hint of the violet. It's not unpleasant, but these are not the notes I initially loved about this fragrance. I think I would pass on a full-size of this.
Summary: I used this for a while, but I didn't get through a whole bottle and eventually grew tired of it. What had me hooked about this fragrance was this wonderful buttery essence which came through. I'm not sure what it was, or how to describe it, other than buttery goodness. However, the sweet fruitiness got to me after a while and I was done with it. Not one I'd go back to.
Summary: Cherry-Vanilla milkshake. With real cherries and real vanilla. I didn't pick up on the synthetic notes mentioned by some other reviewers. Not unpleasant, but too candy-sweet for me, even after the drydown. Pity, because the bottle is absolutely gorgeous. Lasting power was about 5 hours for the EDP, and I didn't apply much. Wouldn't repurchase, but the bottle would look sooo pretty on a dresser...
