Ambrosia is known as the legendary youthful food of the Greek gods that would reside on Mount Olympus, and that is exactly the scent inspiration behind the latest Cartier cologne known as L'Envol. The scent aims to recreate a musky and sweet fragrance inspired by mythic food that would keep the gods young for years to come.

While ambrosia might be a fictional food, the folkloric legend behind it explained in the myths alludes to the product being of a liquid gold consistency and smelling like sweet honey. This is exactly the source of inspiration behind the L'Envol fragrance that combines notes of honey, patchouli and wood to create a musky scent. The perfume itself is gold in color and packaged in a sleek glass bell jar.
