Making my own Swiss Army Knife

As I’ve gotten older, despite my best efforts, apparently it’s inevitable that I’m going to turn into my parents. My Dad has always been into old movies, and history, and as time’s gone on, I’ve found myself more and more into learning about the history of things, and being drawn to anything with tradition and heritage.

A couple of weeks ago, I was spending a day out and about at press days, and whilst at Modus PR, I spotted their Victorinox display, with a bunch of pieces and tools in the corner.

Originally released in 1998, I believe the latest reformulation was in 2010, but don't quote me on that. According to Cartier, the Déclaration collection is 'a fragrance for saying the things that matter. An emotional fragrance leaving a woody, spiced trail enlivened with a note of freshness.' and this particular variant is 'a fresh perfume, spicy and woody with the power and majesty of cedar, brightened with cardamom.'
