    Castile by Penhaligon's

    This is a great musky floral though it ventures into laundry detergent musk territory. The opening is brilliant citrus and neroli followed by petitgrain and rose then by musk and a light wood. Castile borders closely on being too feminine to be a masculine scent, if I were Penhaligons, I would have marked it unisex, but since most Penhaligons customers are men, this makes sense I suppose. Anyway, I find Castile similar to Chanel's new Eau de Cologne except Castile is cleaner and crisper. As nice as the soap after which it is so aptly named. Buy a bottle if you can find one--this is one of Penhaligons best so far.
