    I have been wearing IV L'Heure Fougueuse for just a couple of days and will be spending more time with it during this week. First impressions are a beautiful Maté + bales of fresh hay (in close up) which transforms into a crisp, quite bracing stiff gin and tonic with some tea in the vicinity with a hint of lacquer or nail polish on top which then settles into a blend of all the above. Best way I can describe it. I really like it and I would point any fans of Annick Goutal's Duel in this direction - it's a different animal (a horse, actually) but you'll make the connection.

    I have also briefly sampled XIII (the idea is 'smoke') & VII (the idea being an exploration of cacao but not in an overly sweet way).

    In depth reviews that I have enjoyed can be found over at Grain de Musc. I think Mathilde Laurent is doing some very cool work with this series so far - I believe there will be 13 in all when the line is complete.

    They finally got them at Saks here and I literally stumbled onto them looking for the new Oscar de la Renta (that BTW, I couldn't find anywhere!).

    The only one I put on skin (my arms were already covered in Un Jardin sur le Toit and Untitled by Martin Margiela) was XIII - La Treizième Heure which is FAN-TASTIC. Sort of a luxury, parfum version of Black by Bulgari. Infinitely complex. I'll call it a goth chypre - if that makes sense. I won't go near a bottle 'til it's WAY colder here in Miami and I have WAY more money in my pocket.

    Oh and Ray my husband was totally into X - L'Heure Folle but to me it smelled way too much like Oyedo by Diptyque....which basically smells like Orange Life Savers candies. But then again Ray loves those fruity florals and he douses himself with The-Candy-Store-Exploded a.k.a. Lil' Angel by Gwen Stefani so you should take his preferences with a grain of salt.
    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    You begin to awaken"

    I found some to be OK, others not to be. But none were worth purchasing - they are extremely overpriced IMO.

    Sorry about resurrecting this almost 3-year old thread. Someone mentioned in another thread yesterday (can't find it now) that Cartier was getting ready to release two more 'Heures" in the collection bringing the new total to twelve. Anyone remember what they were and when they will be coming out this year? I know that Saks carries the line, but the SA rep I spoke today didn't have any info.

    ^ Hednic, that might have been me. I read about the forthcoming releases on a french site / blog (can't remember which) but there were no details regarding dates. I'm about to email Cartier and ask for clarification. If there's anything worth passing on, I'll do so here.

    Persolaise in his blog post entitled Happy 2014 (posted on January 7th), mentions the 2 new Les Heures releases for 2014, but as gandhajala says, no details about them.

    Well, those are some hints that what might come, they are names that Cartier trademarked:

    Les Heures Voyageuses: http://www.trademarkia.com/les-heure...-79137756.html

    Mille Et Une Heures: http://www.trademarkia.com/mille-et-...-79088194.html

    These sound plausible, especially the last one. Thanks for this info.
