Carlisle fragrance notes

Reviews of Carlisle

Oft described as the lovechild of Herod, Oajan, and Layton, Carlisle is a weird one for me. The first hour or so is somewhat plasticine on my skin, probably a consequence of the patchouli, guaic wood, and florals in the mid. After that, it gets nicer for me, and I think, wow, I actually kind of dig this. But the drydown is the same vanillic PDM-ade that you smell in all of their fragrances, with an added dash of cardamom. The notion of combining some of PDM's fragrances together sounds like a great idea, but I feel that Carlisle is lacking, especially for the price point. I find myself missing Layton's freshness, Herod's creamy tobacco and vanilla, Oajan's honey and cinnamon. In combining these fragrances together, Carlisle has lost their distinguishing characteristics and thus, on my skin at least, just smells amorphous. If you've smelt other PDM fragrances, you've smelt this one. For the price, I can't justify purchasing Carlisle, especially since I own Layton and a big decant of Herod.

Performance is typically great for the house - 8-9 hours longevity, about 2 hours of projection, and decent sillage.

Feels like a floral, chocolate-vanilla up front. As it dries down, becomes more of a lit candle smell. Feels formal and for cooler, outdoor situations.

Strong projection throughout. Lasts all day. Go easy on the sprays.

Carlisle seems to be one of Parfums de Marly's most successful releases in recent years, judging by the amount of online buzz it receives, actual sales notwithstanding. It features a nice array of frankly conflicting notes, an opening of citrus (bergamot, mandarin) followed by a sharp violet and spicy cardamom in contrast with patchouli and sweet guaiac wood. It's not a sweet fragrance, really, but there's a slight sweetness that keeps it from being a sharp/spicy bomb.

It's elegantly blended, usually the case with PDM offerings, but still bold enough to turn heads. Still, I see it as sort of an upscale men's cold weather signature scent of sorts, not particularly feminine but not laden with leather or oud, for instance, to make it over-the-top masculine. It's easy to see why it seems so popular among men in particular, and is one of the standouts of the PDM men's line.

Carlisle is a very good performer, like most of the more cold-weather-leaning PDM offerings, but as usual the retail price is a little bit untenable, even at $350 for 125ml, but I imagine there are deals to be had even in the post-Notino era in the US. Max Aroma seems to offer 40% off the entire PDM collection they carry from time to time.

Overall, definitely worth trying, as many men will find this to be an easy winner--I'm just not smitten, personally, but respect the craft.

Personally I find this one quite average. For the price point I find it a disappointment.

I first sampled this scent and really fell in love with it so I bought a bottle. Firstly presentation is top notch. Parfums De Marly does an awesome job with packaging. The bottle feels like it could be used as a weapon. But that's not what you care about how does it smell.
It starts up front with a nice sweetness that doesn't fully commit to being a gourmand. It does a nice job of riding the line of being slightly fresh as well with the bergamot which is done extremely well as to not be overpowering. After an hour or so on my skin it begins to shine and becomes truly unique the voilets and jasmine begin hitting on all cylinders with the cardamom. The beauty is it holds this lovely scent for a long time I easily had 10 hours of performance on skin with the last 2 being a rich vanilla and cardamom. In conclusion if you are looking for a nice entry gourmand without the boozy sometimes overdone traits *cough* kilian *cough* this may be for you.

I'm surprised this one has zero reviews...

It's an amazing fragrance, very underrated :)

Very similar to Tom Ford Noir Extreme. But I prefer this one because of its performance, gorgeous stuff.
