For more formal occasions, try the original Déclaration from Cartier.

Cartier

Birchbox Breakdown

A distinct take on Cartier’s Déclaration scent, Déclaration Essence builds upon the bestselling original. It features the same warm woody base but adds layers of fresh spices for an enticing finish. It’s sophisticated and sensual at the same time, making it a worthy addition to Cartier’s fragrance line—and ours.

How it Works

A harmonious blend of fresh, spicy, and woody notes makes for a fragrance that conveys both strength and elegance. A base of cedar wood and the robust warmth of cistus are topped off with refreshing orange and bergamot.

How to Use

Use sparingly on pulse points like the wrists and neck. This is a declaration, not an exclamation.

ALCOHOL, AQUA (WATER), PARFUM (FRAGRANCE), LIMONENE, CITRONELLOL, LINALOOL, HEXYL CINNAMAL, COUMARIN, EVERNIA PRUNASTRI (OAKMOSS) EXTRACT, CITRAL, GERANIOL.

Smells SO good

I got this for my husband recently and I love it (he likes it too!) It may be a bit pricey, but you don't need to use a lot so a bottle lasts a good while!

Very light

Loved how light it was, it was almost on the verge of being Lovely. Felt like a great scent to wear to work, not overpowering at all.

Like the scent... not the price!
Sampled

I like getting different samples in my box each month, but I'm looking for one to buy. This one was light and fresh but too expensive. Maybe next time will be better.

Short on strenght
Sampled

Really nice sent. Crisp, clean but short on strength and staying power. Barely detectable within a couple of hours of wearing. Expected more given the purchase price.

Bad

Yikes. I typically don't wear fragrance, and this brand has not swayed my opinion in the least.
