Lead us into temptation: Cartier’s fragrant trio is an ode to oudh

Fans of oudh-y fragrances, Cartier has a sensory treat in store for you.

Its latest fragrance collection Les Heures Voyageueses is high perfumery at its best –  a trio of beautifully bottled scents, each containing one key ambrée ingredient: oudh wood. (And yes, oudh can be spelled different ways. With an ‘h’, or without? We go with. Cartier drops its ‘h’…)

Perfumer Mathilde Laurent’s privately composed sillages pay tribute to faraway lands by blending influences and of course, highly sophisticated ingredients. An olfactory exploration of the far East – and evoking the many voyages around the globe which were completed by the Cartier brothers, who founded the house.

The rare ingredient evokes the feeling of mystery, magical dreams and the beauty of woody nature.

Take your pick from unmixed oud wood in Oud & Oud, a beautiful composition of Oud & Rose or the delicate yet enveloping blend of Oud & Musc
