Cartier Déclaration Essence

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.

Not a good cologne, too strong and it didn't smell good at all with my body chemistry. I also do not think it's wise for birchbox to send everyone that's subscribed, the same cologne, everyone is different. I rather get samples of things I like from Mont Blanc, Issey Miyake, Calvin Klein, YSL, Gucci, Chanel, and Kenzo.

Not a fan

Wasn't a fan. It was a very woodsy smell. Definitely not for me.

Another Average Joe Review

I love cologne (have well over 50)
This smells straight out of an axe can (which is fine)
But for $105? this is not fine.
Also, Birchbox is tremendously overcharging for this...I feel like an idiot buying this for double the price of competitors.

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.

Meh...

Doesn't stand out to me, smells too "commercial". Sampled through Birchbox and it doesn't compare to my recent favorite also found through Birchbox - English Laundry's Riviera.

Not a fan. Doesn't work with my chemistry
Sampled

I read through a lot of the reviews, and the consensus seems to be that most like it. For me, it just doesn't work. The scent I smell isn't something I'd normally associate with a men's fragrance. It smells more like a locker room. Not a fan at all. But then, I don't wear fragrances often.

Thanks but no thanks

Strong enough for a man but clearly scented for a woman. The scent is long lasting and very delicate, like an old lady scent. Definitely not for me.

Fragrence
Sampled

I was not a fan of the smokey sent and neither was my girlfriend. I did think the sent lasted a long time which would have been appreciated if I had enjoyed the smell.

Not musky.

I'm sure for some men this fragrance would be complimentary, but my taste is for a more musky type of cologne. It isn't a bad smell, I just didn't like the smell of it that much.

Too powdery smelling

It felt more feminine than masculine for a scent. The sample was adequate for size. I tend to lean towards more simple and clean scents. Then again cologne can be somewhat personal to taste.
