Must de Cartier Perfume

When my perfume ran out, I went to Marionnaud Parfumeries at La Praille shopping centre, to enjoy a 50% discount on the purchase of a new one. After having tried several perfumes, my choice settled on Must de Cartier. I tried it on my wrist and I was conquered by the chemistry of this fragrance on my skin.

I would say it has a winter oriental scent, very warm and elegant. In my opinion, this is a wonderful scent due to the perfect balance of its “notes” which are made up of galbanum, orange blossom, mandarin with sensual jasmine and a woody, vanilla, amber and musky oriental background.

This fragrance was launched more than 30 years ago and I have to say that I also like the masculine and practical form of the perfume bottle which is shaped like a golden lighter.

So, who said that we must ruin ourselves for beautiful and good things? In my opinion, it is necessary to buy intelligently.

I wish you a fabulous week ahead.

Apple Banana Chocolate Chip Cake

Recently I came across this super simple cake recipe and I immediately wanted to try it. It was a real success. So moist and exquisite. Sweetheart was conquered and I believe you will be too when you have taste it. So here’s the recipe.

100 g of flour
50 g of sugar
1 egg
4 tablespoons of oil
6 tablespoons of milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch of salt
1 banana
2 apples (I used Golden Delicious)
1 handful of dark chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 180 °C. In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, oil, milk and egg. Once well mixed, add the dark chocolate chips.

Pour into a buttered cake mould and place the fruits cut into pieces, on top (first the banana then the apples).

Bake for 45 min. Leave to cool on a rack on removing from the oven.

Serves 8

Note: You can replace the dark chocolate chips with a handful of raisins macerated in rum (as per the original recipe).
