Layton fragrance notes

Reviews of Layton

Smells pretty boring and generic to me. Right in line with dozens of others at a Macy's counter. Not bad, just nothing special, and certainly nothing worth the msrp.

Nice fragrance that i'm sure will draw compliments. Lasts a real long time but as with all other PDM fragrances they just smell far too synthetic to my nose. If they were £60 - £70 per bottle I would snap most of them up but at their current price point I would expect more!

Sweet, medicinal opening. Getting a fruity tobacco smell in the drydown, not that far from Pure Havane. In fact, you can say that PH is more refined, more subdued and less harsh but the Mugler will get the same job done for far less and I think it stands out more, so will probably be the better compliment getter.

Projection is good, not great. Longevity is very good, lasts all day.

A lovely, pleasant, and versatile fragrance. My wife says it reminds her of JPG Ultra Male. Layton has been compared to a number of lower-priced designer fragrances, however, it does not have a synthetic feel to it and is quite unique. I slightly prefer it over the Layton Exclusif and it is roughly half of the price. The notes from PDM's website are:

"Bergamot leads with its tangy passion, while lavender and geranium blend into a fresh note, chic and chivalrous all at once. The intensity rises from mesmerizing amber, enhanced by the natural elegance of a pink pepper. Distinguished and addictive, its character carried by vanilla and precious woods grows more powerful thanks to an intriguing note: a flavourful and fascinating hint of caramelized coffee."

what hits my nose immediately is that generic wood smell that is so prevalent in just about every other designer fragrance...get a few little nuances of apple and flower...i also get the effect that i've heard others mention of a slight tobacco flavor...i have to agree with the thought that this is a fairly standart designer formula/structure made with slightly better niche quality ingredients and blending...office friendly for sure...have to make a major pass on this one...no wow factor...gets kind of borderline cloying...somewhat aromatic...i get bored of this pretty quick...

This is a pleasant inoffensive combination of apple, violet, sandalwood with a hint of pepper. It is fairly linear after a slightly sugary fruity opening. The sweetness is immediately a warning sign. The sweetness settles yet remains as an undertone. I am sweet enough already. Nothing to dislike but then that's not the point of wearing a fragrance. It has to be pleasing, intriguing, elegant, classy in other words convey some pleasure to the senses that raises primarily your dopamine and hopefully those around you. It is a shame as this almost gets it right. There is a freshness and bite simmering in the midrange but that sweetness and slight cloyiness handcuffs it to the 'also ran'. There is a great masculine scent hiding there.
This was recommended to me as the best example from this fragrance house by someone who regretted buying a full bottle of Pegassus and put in straight on ebay. His recommendation was clearly based on this being less awful than Pegassus.
A neutral from me.

2.5/5
Projection: 3/5
Longevity: 5/5 (seems to be a consensus)
