It is not a fragrance, but a flower.
A simple lily, yet one that is complete with leaf-stamen-petal.
It is not an invitation, but an impromptu theft.
Just an urgent kiss that cannot wait. A sudden urge strengthened by the dream of a lily that is so pure, so real… A gentle, longed-for floral embrace.
With a Baiser volé or stolen kiss, everything fall away… But who is the thief? Him or her? No matter. Both are swept away by the impulse, drawn to this floral fragrance whose finesse, exquisite smoothness and overwhelming sincerity bestow the skin with its very own signature.
Concocting this Baiser volé was a bold challenge for Cartier perfumer Mathilde Laurent, who imagined a bouquet of flowers on the edge of the neck, a powdered, vanilla-tinged lily captured from all perspectives: the transparent water, the freshness of a waxed leaf, the silky fresh or a petal and the sensual intensity of a pistil.
An embodiment that comes as close as possible to the real blossom.
Just a lily, just a kiss.
A flask of femininity
Pure and simple in design, its sensuality mirrors its lingering scent. To open the bottle is to break into intimacy, the smooth metal lid an accomplice to its irresistible "Open Me" invitation.
A fine object symbolizing a sense of refinement that is "so" Cartier, where beauty lies in the materials, the fragrance and the bottle.
