How To Have A Truly Merry Christmas The Cartier Way
1/4 Ballon Blanc de Cartier
Gifting your loved one a new watch during Christmas is always a nice means to showing her appreciation for all she has done for you. Consider the Ballon Blanc de Cartier. A doppelganger for the iconic Ballon Bleu de Cartier, this wrist candy features a clear, sparkling diamond on its crown at 4 o’clock instead of a blue cabochon at 3. This feminine creation with its sunray-finished dial and sword-shaped hands makes for easy wearing and brings a woman from the boardroom to the bar effortlessly.
2/4 The Love Bracelet
An iconic design by Italian designer Aldo Cipullo during the heady days of the 1970s, the Love bracelet has since become an icon of the House and a symbol of sophistication the world over. The latest version of the bracelet looks exactly like the original but is crafted in a more delicate manner as it allows for better wearability. Get a pair of bracelets as a declaration of love for the Significant Other and enjoy the priceless look of surprise on her face.
3/4 Juste un Clou SM
Yet another bracelet designed in the 1970s, the Juste un Clou resembles a nail bent into a bangle. Unlike the Love bracelet, which is more of a classic design, this Juste un Clou SM (small model) is made for the bold, avant-garde individual, who wants something different on the wrist. It is slimmer and made more flexible than the original, which makes it easier to wrap around the wrist. Stacking multiple bracelets-the same design or otherwise-becomes simpler too. It is available in both pink and yellow gold.
4/4 Carat Eau de Parfum
Perfumer Mathilde Laurent takes inspiration from the spectrum of colours as light passes through a diamond for the new Carat Eau de Parfum. She inverts the seven colours in her olfactory spectrum to create the new scent. Violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red are represented here by violet, iris, hyacinth, ylang, daffodil, honeysuckle and tulip respectively, producing a floral rainbow. Unlike typical floral scents, which can be sweet and over-cloying, Carat is light, refined and elegant: an indication that the most premium of ingredients were used in its creation. Smelling nice always put everyone in a better mood for the season of merriment and enjoyment. Spritz on!
