    Castile by Penhaligon's

    O, the pity of it!
    It does starts out with a wonderfully enchanting accord of high grade neroli which is both masculine and understated.
    Hey, this is made a by one of the old-fashioned Brit houses, so you can bet your tweeds and your pipe it's going to be understated, you Platinum Egoiste mod freaks, so there!

    But then the musk notes kick in and unless you're caught in a rainstorm in London or better still, in an Arctic expedition, the heat transforms the whole thing into something rather vile and violent. The notes start fighting each other rather than harmonizing and---well, suffice it to say I'd rather wear Kouros. Honestly, It would smell far better in the heat than Castile.
