Take flight with the new L’Envol de Cartier. The luminous men’s scent, which translates to “the flight of Cartier,” evokes a sense of personal elevation both genders can relate to. The woody Oriental scent opens with accents of honey before guaiac wood, patchouli and musk add depth and complexity for an elegant finish.
