Catch Me by Cacharel: Catch Me… If You Can
The Cacharel universe has always been full of poetry and romantic images, not in vain its motto is “Proud to be romantic” (proud to be romantic).
Fashion was the first love of its founder Jean Bousquet, but in 1978 he also embarked on the adventure of creating fragrances and reflected in them his most dreamy side.
The first Cacharel perfume was Anaïs Anaïs, and in the same vein, perfumes with female names continued to be launched to represent different women, different ways of seeing life (Noa, Loulou, Scarlett).
At the same time, other fragrances appear with suggestive names such as Promesse or Amor Amor.
Catch me was launched on September 1, 2012 and is the latest to arrive after several years of reinterpretations of previous fragrances.

What does it smell like?
Dominique Ropion was the nose of the Catch me perfume. Your idea? A love potion, for a woman between innocent and mischievous, full of youthful emotions.
And the formula? A composition that revolves around the orange blossom for its strong symbolism and its extraordinary smell.
The orange blossom has been considered a symbol of femininity, fertility and also innocence. The French perfumer tells us at length how orange blossom contains top notes full of innocence but little by little it reveals its sensual floral character.
In addition, it has looked for the ideal companions to highlight each of its facets: the freshness of citrus fruits bring out its relationship with orange, the mixture with other flowers makes it soft and creamy, and the amber wood note as its opposite. , attracts her and fights.
Bearing this in mind, Catch starts me off with the spring mood of petit grain, bergamot and Italian mandarin, insisting on the citrus facet but without being excessive thanks to the absolute of Moroccan orange blossom, mixed with other flowers such as jasmine.
Its characteristic smell of almonds is perceived from the first moments. In the initial sensations its behavior is more festive like the aroma of the Amaretto liquor. But little by little it softens and develops softer but persistent nuances.
The base is sweet and intense, using almond milk, amber and woody echoes on which the rest of the notes survive. The final set feels creamy, milky, and steamy.
Due to its composition, it is indicated for young women in informal situations or for daily use, projecting an uninhibited, sincere, innocent and jovial aura.
It is perhaps too simple – with the omnipresence of the orange blossom in its innocent / sensual double facet – to be a fragrance for events or dates at night. It can also be used for the office.
The target age is from 15 to 40 years, although its use beyond depends on the personality of whoever wears it. It is a spring perfume with a trail that lasts over time and evolves little.
Sweet, cool, pleasant, cute, charming, fantastic, special and modern: this is what the opinions of its most loyal users tend to be.
Many people are of the opinion that Catch Me is a lighter version of Thierry Mugler’s Alien. The same could be said of Loulou. And it is that Catch Me seems to be a light version of Loulou where the hedione loses its strength and the notes of anise, marigolds and black currant disappear to give way to almond milk.
In turn, the aromatic notes that people usually detect more easily are:
- Jasmine: the flower has great prominence in the olfactory structure of the perfume. It is perceived as sweet, vaporous and elegant although persistent.
- Almonds: with a sweet and milky behavior, it adds a feminine and creamy character to the composition. Its scent lingers into the deepest, musky layers of the perfume.
- Orange blossom and petitgrain: the various aromas of the orange tree form very harmonious and balanced chords with the almond.
- Amber: This tender, woody note flavors the garish potential of jasmine and contributes to the longevity of the fragrance on the skin.
The bottle that Patrick Veillet created is compact, suggestive and cute “like a fruit ready to be picked” in his own words.
It is indeed reminiscent of a fruit, but a certain movement is also added by designing a small base and protruding walls that act as a top.
This movement and the undulations of its transparent surface give it a modern character and close to the Cacharel ideal; the stopper adds a bouquet of bubbles in a metallic violet that contrasts with the transparency of the liquid.
The bottle is included in a purple box with touches of color as if they were flashes of light, with the letters in white. It is available in eau de parfum format and in sizes 30, 50 and 80 ml.
From the Catch me range, Cacharel has also presented a body milk in 200 ml format.
The first special edition of the perfume hits the markets in the summer of 2014 and is called Catch me L’Eau. It is presented as a fresher, more invigorating and festive version than the original.
The advertising campaign shot by Jean Baptiste Mondino revolves around the Romanian model Diana Moldovan, whose sensual innocence has already earned her campaigns for Dior, Prada, Chanel among other firms.
In the ad he plays a game of tag game in a garden at night, a metaphor for the game of seduction. Some boys are looking for her and she lets himself be hunted by one and then escapes from his arms again.
“Catch me … si j’ai envie” (Catch me … if I feel like it) is the slogan of this game where the protagonist is the one who sets the rules under the music of Mahaut Mondino composed expressly for the advertisement.
Here we leave you the attractive and poetic video of the ad, take a look:
The photographic campaign follows this same line, but also highlights the plasticity of the bottle in the middle of a grass field at night. It is about a getaway, an adventure, a pleasure that wants you to catch it.
Cacharel maintains an active profile on social media, and ran photo contests among his fans for the launch of Catch me. He currently shares a profile with Amor Amor, the best-selling fragrance from the French house.
