Description
You may not notice Baiser Volé initially, but once the powdery floral hits you, you’d end up in awe of how well-made it is. Despite being based on a flower, the lily specifically, this one will not suffocate with candy sweet, instead opening with a slightly bitter note and surprising you with a bright hint of citrus. There is a short blow of lily which later subsides into something richer and musky. The whole time it stays on the skin, it won’t be the overwhelming scent the way others feel they need to be. And it can be worn all-year round, although it will probably be at its best on warmer seasons.

The lily-centric Baiser Volé (which translates to stolen kiss) from Cartier is a Mathilde Laurent creation. The perfumer wanted to explore how the whole of the flower, instead of just the bud, is translated to smell. The resulting product is far from your usual sweet florals, and is a tad more sophisticated than the rest without being overpowering. Its bottle is equally enticing, and appears to be shaped after a glamorous cigarette lighter. Baiser Volé was released in 2011 and has since been sold in 30, 50 and 100ml.
