The Scented Hound

Abbreviated perfume & fragrance reviews from one man's perspective


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!
