Roadster by Cartier


I purchased Roadster for my better half because I love to smell him in it.  I think of this as his “power” scent, telling him to wear it when he has an important meeting.  Funny thing is that I have never worn it myself so I thought I would give it a spin.  Unfortunately, as much as I love it on him, I didn’t find wearing it myself so appealing.  Don’t get me wrong though, this is a great fragrance.

Roadster goes on with a fresh blast of mint.  This is not a super green mint, but one that’s more tailored.  It has a spicy edge that makes is smooth and masculine.  Roadster has a wonderfully commanding presence that runs the line between being green yet warm.  And to boot, it has great sillage and is long-lasting.  Perfect for when you need to wear a “power” scent!

  1. I just like the idea of having a Cartier in my collection. I went for Declaration though. This clearly needs a sniff,

  2. I’n not a huge mint fan in fragrance, I hate to admit how much I love Lush’s Dirty EDT, but it is one of my fav summer fragrances. The mint in Herba Fresca gross’s me a little bit and Menthe Fraiche is just ok, a literal clean mint. Haven’t tried the Cartier I will admit, not too up my alley by the sounds of it but interesting!


    • Before this scent, I don’t think I have ever paid much attention to scents with mint in them. I may have to though because it does make sense that it woudl be great for summer wear.


      • Be sure to try my suggestions. As I said Dirty is probably my favourite.
        Mint for me has to be completely non-cologne-y.
        I love Dirty’s stale chewing gum and salty vibe.
