    Default The Declaration of....Cartier

    Just finished sampling the triplets....Bois Bleu, Essence, and the original. It is clearly evident they all are from the same family.

    Bois Bleu...I liked the little bit of iciness. Overall a nice scent. Nothing that screamed take me home.

    Essence...To me...just a tamer version of the original. Maybe aimed at toning down the so called odiferous note that people talk about. Nice bottle though.

    Declaration original....definitely the most interesting of the family. Strong opening yes but dries down very nicely. I am on the fence about this one.

    I am surprised I did not like these more than I did. I have had a good relationship back in the day with Cartier...having owned and loved the original Santos and Pasha. When I wanted to revisit Cartier I went for the ones I had not sampled before. I will also try the new one coming out...D'un Soir.

    I will now turn my attention to Santos de Cartier and Santos de Cartier Concentree. I have samples of both waiting. Have not tried Must pour Homme yet either, I understand that is a well made scent.

    As for the originals...I know I could find them but I truly dislike E-bay. I will have to see how the Santos family fares to my nose. For some reason I hope I like them. It seems for nostalgia sake I should have something by Cartier in my collection.

    Agreed. The original is the best. Essence comes second.

    The original is the best scent in the Cartier lineup IMO. I loved it the first time I tried it and I appeciate it with each wearing.

    I personally like all the three, they all have a particular kind of non-generic, smooth and even slightly comforting gourmand accord.

    Declaration is probably one of my favorites from the Cartier house, but overall I probably wouldn't want to wear ANY of the Cartier fragrances.

    And what about the Esu Genereuse version? I am very tempted by this one, but have never tried it...
    Kurt smells like Teen Spirit

    I seemed to have overlooked this one. I have not sampled it but it is now of my list.
