Cartier is the "jeweller of kings and the king of jewellers," so declared Edward VII – and it’s an epithet that has endured. Supplying ineffably luxurious treasures since 1847, the Parisian jeweller was founded by Louis-François Cartier, though it was his grandchildren Louis, Pierre and Jacques who transformed Cartier from a boutique into a globally renowned name. The house pioneered platinum as a setting in the 1860s, and ground-breaking expertise was not restricted to jewellery alone.
Cartier masters more than one art, clearly exemplified by its line of fragrances. Inspired by a free-spirited and passionate woman, the captivating La Panthère parfum – a creation by Mathilde Laurent – opens with a feline-floral accord born from the fusion between a radiant and delicate gardenia with sensual musky notes. At the heart of the bottle, a faceted sculpture represents the fascinating and majestic panther.
