Cartier Oud & Oud, Oud & Rose and Oud & Musc ~ new fragrances

Cartier Les Heures Voyageuses

Cartier has launched Les Heures Voyageuses, a new trio of fragrances in the Les Heures de Parfum series. The fragrances are Oud & Oud, Oud & Rose and Oud & Musc.

Les Heures Voyageuses is an immeasurably precious collection of High Perfumery fragrances from around the world that pays tribute to distant lands and the many journeys undertaken by the Cartier brothers. The Orient is the first stage in this journey that explores the powerful, woody notes of Oud, that rare and precious wood resin.

Oud & Oud ~ "Voluptuous wafts of sweet-smelling Oud resin immerse the senses, discreetly dispensing its delicate and restrained scent."

Oud & Rose ~ "The scent of Oud resin exerts its attraction to the full, matched only by the seductive force of the Rose. Together they combine the exceptional and the absolute in a harmony that rejoins the hallowed tradition of the fragrances of the Orient."

Oud & Musc ~ "Oud resin combines with musk to produce a scent that is both delicate and intimate."

Cartier  Les Heures Voyageuses Oud & Oud, Oud & Rose and Oud & Musc were developed by perfumer Mathilde Laurent. They are available in 75 ml, $355.

    • Robin says:

      I frankly don’t remember the price of the “regular” Heures, but yeah, $355. Ouch.

    • Holly says:

      Thanks. You made my day! :-)

    I usually find at least interesting, and often beautiful, whatever Mathilde Laurent produces. But. Oud. I suppose it is missing from Cartier’s current line up (please correct me if I’m wrong!)

    • Robin says:

      I don’t know all the Heures so not sure, but certainly these are the first I know of with oud in the name. Eau de Cartier Essence de Bois had oud, but not in the title, obviously.

  3. pigoletto says:

    Someone seriously named a perfume Oud & Oud. Because Oud just wouldn’t do.

    • mutzi says:

      They should have gone with Oud & Ouder.

      • Robin says:

        Oud & Ouder –> perfect flanker name.

        • Kelly Red says:

          With Oudest being the flanker to the flanker!

          I love oud, but even I’m saying ENOUGH! Mostly because a lovely rare ingredient is being over-harvested.

    Oud Got To Be Kidding Me.

  5. Jillie says:

    Yet more oud – oud have thought it?

  6. juicejones says:

    What committee signed off on that extra five dollars? $355?

  7. rickbr says:

    I know we have had many oud, but i love those bottles and i love Cartier. But it’s so expensive! :( I hope i’m at least able to try them…

    Thank you all for the comments here — I went twice through them and couldn’t stop laughing. And whoever is in charge of naming fragrances at Cartier — thank you too for giving us this opportunity (mentioning “The Orient” was an additional plus)

  9. meganinstmaxime says:

    I really don’t mind everyone doing an oud as every brand does a rose, vetiver, citrus …. However the naming of these perfumes is just very boring and Oud & Oud is spectacularly bad.

  10. Omega says:

    I don’t like this oud train..kinda needs to crash.
