    Default Eau de Cartier Concentree, Eau de Cartier, and Limited Editions,are they VERY similar

    Are these three so similar that if you have one it is not worth getting the other two, anybody?

    I am curious to know the answer too. I can only comment on the concentree.
    While there have been a couple times when I have felt like its on the sythetic side, there was a day a couple weeks ago that I wore it, and it was absolutely perfect. It gave me this feeling of energy and vitality, and I knew others around me could feel it too. Nice longevity.

    I have also the Concentree and it is so good that I am thinking of getting the other two unless they are more or less the same.

    The Concentree is more synthetic and more green, its louder.

    Eau de Cartier is sweeter, and more feminine, but more crystalline if that makes any sense.

    The limited editions are more like the original, b/c they feel a tad bit more sweeter than my concentree.

    Cartier rules! Concentree is one of my fav top 5.

    When you say 'Limited Edition' are you talking about the Eau de Cartier Genereuse?

    I own and wear Eau de Cartier and love it.

    I tried the Concentree and didn't think it was that much different to make it worth buying another bottle. Any difference is very small IMO. What I might do is wait until my current bottle runs out and buy the Concentree to replace it and see what I think.

    Can't comment on the other, I've not tried it.

    Actually I tested Eau de Cartier today and it was pretty similar to the Concentree, a little sweeter but as you say not worth having both.

    you know this one seems like its going to be that ultimate, go to, high class, unisex scent but it as never lived up to what i thought it would be.

    every version i've tested smells like cellophane, very synthetic like everyone has said. the only version i have enjoyed was a summer one they had a couple of years ago. it was fruitier which helped balance out the plasticky, celery, green smell.

    however, the longevity completely sucked.

    if you want something in a simlar vein - clear, light, transparent, green, crisp - go with bulgari pour homme concentree or CDG 71 or 53. they are different, but to me they all have the same feel and fit in the same genre.

    Wow, just goes to show, different strokes for different folks I guess!

    Cellophane? Don't get that at all! Nor the plasticky celery thing either - particularly as I hate celery and the smell of it.

    I know what you mean about the longevity - but there is a trick to that with Eau De Cartier. Apply it, then reapply ten minutes later and it will last for HOURS.

    I tested both Eau de Cartier and Eau de Cartier Concentree recently. I decided to purchase the Eau de Cartier Concentree . They were similar, I just liked the Concentree version slightly better.

    I am not familiar with the Limited Edition.

    I have the concentrée version, although I guess I'm in the minority in thinking that Eau de Cartier smells quite different than the concentrée. I didn't really like the regular version, but I am in love with the concentrée - I can't wait for summer to wear it again.

    Pretty similar. Concentree is probably the best value.
