Cartier will launch Roadster for Men this coming September. The "mineral fougère" fragrance with a "powerful mint note" was named for the Cartier Roadster watch, and was developed by Cartier perfumer Mathilde Laurent, who noted...
It was interesting to work with because it is difficult to make mint play well with other ingredients. The manner of working on it was very Cartier; I used the ingredients as a jeweler uses precious stones.
The notes for Cartier Roadster include bergamot, mint, vetiver, patchouli, labdanum, cashmere wood and vanilla.
Cartier Roadster will be available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette and in matching grooming products. It will launch at Bloomingdales and Cartier boutiques in September, elsewhere in October. (quotes via cosmeticnews, additional information via wwd) Update: see a review of Cartier Roadster.
