A Review of the New Baiser Fou Fragrance From Cartier
By Alison Blackman
“Baiser Fou” has a number of translations, including a slang one I can’t mention here (ooh la la)!
But basically, the translation of “Baiser Fou” means “Crazy/Foolish Kiss.”
Baiser Fou a New Fragrance From Cartier
For the purposes of this review, we aren’t talking about actual kissing.
Baiser Fou ($95, 1.6 oz) is also the latest floral scent from Cartier.
This bright and irresistible fragrance just recently hit shelves at Cartier Boutiques and Cartier.com.
Cartier’s in-house perfumer Mathilde Laurent is showing a younger woman how to be playful, with a fragrance featuring purple orchid, a hint of white chocolate, and an aura that re-creates the fragrance of lipstick.
How Does it Smell?
Spritzing Baiser Fou on my skin I sighed and wondered why my lipsticks didn’t smell like this.
Most of the ones I use have no scent or smell lightly of some faint chemical.
But the powdery orchid with a bit of fruit did remind me of the fragrance I’ve enjoyed in luxury cosmetics.
You can definitely sense the top notes of fruit, mixed with a light coating of white chocolate. It’s not really that fruit, nor is it all floral and not a gourmand either.
But the thing is that it’s not really that fruity, nor is it all floral –and even though there’s chocolate, it’s not a gourmand fragrance either.
Oh, this crazy kiss fragrance!
And then there is the presentation:
The outer carton is relatively simple, in hot pink with gold and white accents.The bottle is really beautiful featuring a big red “gem” on the spray diffuser, which is built into the bottle so you don’t have to pull off a topper.
A tiny red dot adorns the diffuser itself, The neck is a collar of gold with “Cartier” engraved into it.
Who Will Most Love Baiser Fou?
I am certain that Cartier wants to appeal to a younger woman with this fragrance, perhaps enticing her to make it her first really “serious” scent.
But honestly, the light and lovely scent works so nicely for warmer weather and for “date night” I see this as a fragrance to appeal to women of all ages.
Fragrances like this smell very different from body to body. Make Baiser Fou, yours.
And, no woman could resist this lovely bottle (get it for Mom for Mother’s Day and you’ll win favor all year).
