Topic: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

Hey beautiful people! I've been reading a lot about http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.12878.jpg  Cartier Baiser Vole and I wanted to know you guys' opinions. Thank you for your help!

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

I usually don't go for big floral scents such as http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.536.jpg Estée Lauder Pleasures ...but I wanted to know if this is in anyway similar to the likes of http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.14319.jpg Narciso Rodriguez Narciso Rodriguez for Her Eau de Parfum  in terms of muskiness. I like salty musks. Well, anyway, I'll be happy to read what you guys have to say.

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

I think the EDT and the EDP smell exactly the same and the EDP is just as light as the EDT, which surprised me.  Also, I think this fragrance smells like shampoo, very fresh and clean, a green lily soliflore. If that's your kind of thing, you'll like it. The sillage is low and the longevity is nothing amazing. Basically, it's a paying for the beautiful bottle and name kind of thing.

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

Thank you glad

I usually don't go for scents like these. If you see my wardrobe, I love incenses, spicy and nutty perfumes. But, I also like to experiment. tongue

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

The Cartier ones are not musky fragrances, I don't know who said that, but it's totally misleading. I detected no musk in either when I sampled them.

If you're looking for something at all warm, you won't find it in these, they're cooling fragrances, good for summer, I'd say.

Also, that "salami" lily note is non-exsistent in both Cartier's, these are "shampoo" lilies, lol.

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

For me, is somehow undefined, as it ultralight perfume forcibly made to suffocate- I expected a lot more. Speaking of Pleasures it's classic intense floral scent. Baiser Vole is very modern floral interpretation, different, like a new Ivoire, which has absolutely nothing in common with the original Ivoire. I just can't smell familiar accords, anything known, everything here is different. As an innocent flower that has become too loud lol. Yet, despite my negative experience it is good to hear different opinions.

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

I like http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.12878.jpg Cartier Baiser Vole, but I LOVE http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.20815.jpg Cartier Baiser Vole Essence de Parfum. I highly recommend you test the latter if you can. glad I think it adds a little of the warmth and smoothness that the original is lacking.

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

In fact, when I think about it, the more I like strong notes that are expertly weakened, but faint notes that scream, if you know what I mean. There will be more positive opinions about this one, I guess.

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

Lol "salami" lily. I've never heard that before superglad

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

I couldn't wear it due to the overpowering Lily which almost killed me (okay, not really but it gave me a migraine) but it seems to get a lot of love here. There's no musk. Not even remotely like NR for her, which I adore glad

I also like spicier fragrances and don't often go for light florals, but Baiser Vole is one I like a lot. It's not a musky scent. I disagree with In Vogue that the EDT and EDP are the same. Both are light, but to me EDP is much better. The EDT smells much more synthetic to my nose. I haven't tried the Essence de Parfum yet.

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

I usually like more complex floral perfumes, but baiser volé captured me at first sniff. On paper it shows quite realistic lily stems, on skin is a green, dewy, clean white floral with subtle vanilla undertones, and gently powdery. I think is the definition of a pure floral, not out of the shower clean (I don't get the shampoo reference), but  more "Virgin Mary" pure : baiser volé means stolen kiss, but whenever I wear it, I feel like even my lover's kiss would taint me! wink

As far as variations, I prefer the EDP for the dewy and powdery feeling, but both EDT and Essence de Parfum are nice: EDT is greener and more citrusy, essence has an overload of vanilla that has made me enjoy it especially in winter (longevity and sillage aren't great for the three of them). I recommend you try the latter, as you love Alien Essence Absolue, they are constructed in similar way.

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

Hello! glad

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.12878.jpg Cartier Baiser Vole lily -very credible lily- and outstanding longevity and projection, fresh scent;

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.15902.jpg Cartier Baiser Vole Eau de Toilette not an easy to wear lily with green and greener notes, a reaaally fresh one with less longevity and projection;

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.15901.jpg Cartier Baiser Vole Extrait de Parfum very natural lily, the only (slightly) powdery of the bunch if you ask me, great longevity and projection in despite being an extrait, closer to the original version to me than to the EDT;

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.20815.jpg Cartier Baiser Vole Essence de Parfum the concept of the original version is gone: there are no traces in here of the stems of the lily, however is the most original twist over the original cause has introduced the creaminess of the vanilla and has almost same longevity and projection of the EDP.

Now: they're not powdery, nor synthetic (the EDT and the extrait are called so but that's the greener effect), nor simple. They're all high end and IMHO the EDP is nothing alike the EDT (or the others), that's why some ppl cannot wear the most difficult one (EDT folowed not so closely by the PP).

Since you do don't like sharp florals (Pleasures is an example in despite not being about lily) but you wanna try one and you do like sweeter ones the first and the last I've quoted seems the better match for you for that reasons (your need and as Namida said your current tastes). None of them is spicy, btw. glad

If it doesn't feel right, then it's not.

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

From this mans nose I prefer the Parfumhttp://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.20815.jpg  Cartier Baiser Vole Essence de Parfum This is Spring in a bottle with everything new and clean wrapped in a pleasant aura of Lilies & Vanilla!

Kind Regards,

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.12878.jpg Cartier Baiser Vole edp is not a "big floral" scent in my opinion, but a very subtle one. Very fresh, sweet and just plain lily with a greenish twist. The green notes literally smell like the stem of a lily. Gives off that flower shop vibe, it's cool, crisp but round and sweet. It's one of my absolute favorites!

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.12878.jpg Cartier Baiser Vole - fresh

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.20815.jpg Cartier Baiser Vole Essence de Parfum - creamy

I love both of them.

Liebe ist für alle da

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

I'm not usually big on florals either, I prefer orientals generally. But I own and love both http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.12878.jpg Cartier Baiser Vole EdP and http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.20815.jpg Cartier Baiser Vole Essence de Parfum.

Both are very powdery florals on me, with the Essence being smoother, sweeter and warmer. Lovely.

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

I was disappointed. I received 2 samples at the same time and for me, this one was weak and unassuming. I love heavier orientals and a few big florals, I must admit. This one simply didn't make an impression on me either negative or positive.

In Cartier perfumes I much prefer http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.310.jpg  Cartier Le Baiser Du Dragon and http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.312.jpg  Cartier Must de Cartier

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

i'm not generally big on white florals but i love http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.12878.jpg  Cartier Baiser Vole

i think the green notes stop it from being too much for me. it's really elegant and clean, definitely not musky or narciso radrigues-like. it's a great scent, and the EDP in my opinion is the best of the BV line.

i don't see how it could be a bad purchase, and i have come very close to buying my own bottle several times. my only reservation is that since it's not a very complex fragrance, that i might get bored of it if i had a big bottle. since you have a few more exuberant white florals (pure poison, alien, etc.) that might be a concern for you as well. but in terms of overall quality, it's really gorgeous and IMO a worthwhile buy.

I LOVE that one! Its extremely classy and elegant....and is very delicate and soft! Once it settles on the skin turns into a light sweet vanilla scent,that lasts a very long time.  30

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

Every woman should wear it once in a while, so that when asked what she's wearing, she can say its name in her sexiest French accent.  Because no matter how one appreciates its scent, its name sounds AWESOME.

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

Our dear divine made (as always) an excellent description in every single version.

They all have as main element lily, and they're all gorgeous in their own way.

EDP- great, creamy lily perfume, easy and nice to wear for almost all occasions and seasons.

EDT- much greener, more citric, perfect for summer and spring days (principally if you, like me, crave green perfumes)

Extrait de Parfum- extremely bodied, perfect if you're looking for pure lily

Essence- the main theme is now playing with vanilla, and, guess what? wonderful.

glad

Re: Baiser Volé...opinions :)

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.12878.jpg  Cartier Baiser Vole Beautifully done lily soliflore : green and peppery at the beginning, portrating a photorealistic lily; slightly powdery and sweet in the drydown, a more abstract lily. I don't find it overly musky. I can understand the 'shampoo' comparison, but because it's translucent and clean, instead of being overly chemical. And I find the lily here more towards being delicate, instead of overpowering or meaty like some heavy lily can be.

Considering your favourite fragrances, I agree that you might have a better chance enjoying http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.20815.jpg  Cartier Baiser Vole Essence de Parfum . It has less green and peppery aspect, and is warmer with the significant addition of vanilla. I also find it gives out a more approcheable aura, as the original EDP does seem a bit cold.
