While minimalist aesthetics are seemingly always trending — and with good reason, because a sleek, ultra-curated lifestyle is definitely worth striving for — that doesn't mean glamour and glitz should get lobbed out the window altogether. Hints of luxury here and there help to elevate your spaces and lift your spirits, and give an otherwise streamlined sense of style some much-appreciated interest and opulence (without losing polish). And what's more luxurious than a stunning fragrance that comes in an equally splendorous bottle? The Cartier La Panthère Eau de Parfum Limited Edition is just that, but it won't be around forever so shop it while you still can.
It's been five years since the iconically extravagant French fine jewelry and accessory house Cartier first introduced its La Panthère Eau de Parfum. The undeniably luxe scent celebrates the brand's majestic mascot and muse, the panther, finding inspiration in its sensuality and animalistic intrigue — and this year, it's getting a very fitting upgrade in honor of its fifth birthday. But as with many of life's greatest luxuries, exclusivity is part of the package, so you'll want to snag this celebratory fragrance launch from Cartier before it's gone for good.
To memorialize the fragrance's milestone, Cartier has created two limited edition bottles of La Panthère Eau de Parfum, available at the brand's website as well as major department stores like Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy's, and Neiman Marcus.
What makes these anniversary editions so special? The iconic bottle, which is sculpted to show off the regal face of Cartier's famous panther, has been gilded in gold from top to bottom, illuminating the scent's multifaceted structure and giving off an incredible metallic glow. It's up for grabs in limited quantities in a 2.5 ounce flacon for $140 at all the Cartier retailers mentioned above, and in a smaller 0.8 ounce bottle for $75 exclusively on Nordstrom's website. The bottle effortlessly brings the kind of glamorous luxury that makes your vanity look instantly more elevated.
If you're already a fan of the feline-inspired fragrance, you'll be glad to know those telltale notes crafted by Cartier's In-House Perfumer, Mathilde Laurent, remain the same. The liberated perfume is built off a blend of delicate, feminine gardenia and ultra-soft musk, for a radiant and passionate floral bouquet. It's mesmerizing and enchanting, just like the panther.
