    Default PdM Carlisle vs Mancera Red Tobacco

    I'm surprised how similar these two are, with some differences, of course.

    Carlisle is less of a chemical mess in the opening (though still not great), and a less less sweet than Red Tobacco.

    The latter of course has tobacco that sets it apart, but I feel Carlisle's Opoponax note gives it a similar feel.

    Any basenoters who own both? What are your thoughts?

    Those who only own one of the two, how did you decide?

    I would opt for Parfums De Marley, was not a fan of Red Tobacco by Mancera too sweet and overbearing imo.

    Feel the exact opposite as Speckmann

    I sold off my Carlisle and love wearing Red Tobacco every now and then. I think the sweetness in it is beautifully offset by the smoky oud and incense-y tobbaco.

    To me especially the opening of Red Tobacco is a sweet mishmash (which I like as well) but after 1 hour it settles down to a more dry less sweet incense-woody-cinnamon tobacco scent covered in a bit of vanilla which I love.

    I prefer Red Tobacco because it provides a wild ride, where Carlisle plays it rather safe. But they are both great and worth owning.

    Sometimes I like to mispronounce the PdM Carlisle as "Carlizzle" because of how it's spelled. I haven't had a chance to sample the Mancera, but I like the PdM

    I have Carlisle and will soon be getting Red Tobacco

    There is a faint resemblance of the 2 in there , but I feel are unique and amazing enough to own both.

    I cant say I prefer 1 more over the other,

    But I can say that I prefer these 2 much more over the likes of Ambre Narguille / Oajan / Ambre Tabac
