Cartier Déclaration Haute Fraîcheur
The French jewellery maison breathes new life into their classic Déclaration fragrance range with the conception of Cartier Déclaration Eau de Toilette. 2022’s revamped rendition comprises more intense, woody notes when held in comparison to its predecessor; the brainchild of long-time Cartier perfumer, Mathilde Laurent, that is touted as the label’s most “emblematic and elegant” fragrance yet. The flacon’s vibrant green hue encapsulates its bright, vivacious scent that brings to mind the effervescent colours of new spring.

Rouge Hermès in Rose Nymphéa
February heralds in three new additions to the Rouge Hermès family. The most notable of the lot proves to be Rose Nymphéa; a dusty pink shade that pays homage to the evening sky reflected delicately on the water’s surface. Its lightweight, hydrating finish glides onto pouts with ease, granting radiance and comfort for hours on end. As with most of the objets designed by Pierre Hardy, its packaging includes impressionistic elements—in the case of Rose Nymphéa, it features contrasting shades of mandarin orange tube and pale blue to make a visual statement.
