Christened from a majestic 17th-century English steed, Carlisle is a warmly spiced, gourmand-inflected oriental reserved only for the bold. Opening with a colorful burst of juicy, tart green apple spiked with fiery saffron and earthy nutmeg, Carlisle immediately sets itself apart from even Marly's other wondrous gourmands with a grounded, sophisticated earthiness evident from the very first sniff- this is less indulgent dessert pudding and more the aromas of a grand ballroom soiree in full swing, mouthwatering treats mingled with well-groomed aristocracy, elaborate decor and the general spirit of revelry. A richer-yet heart reveals warm, smooth tonka bean and creamy osmanthus- but also gently bitter davana and luscious rose, leading into a true patchouli note that doesn't hold back on the earthiness. However, lovers of Herod and Oajan need not worry, either- alongside that earthy patchouli, a warmly emergent vein of creamy vanilla and sweet opoponax resinoid are every bit as enchantingly seductive as they are in Marly's other masterpieces. As they all reach an enduring harmony in Carlisle's final stages, the glow is enough to make you feel like you, yourself are descended from royalty.

Great ULM (unisex leaning masculine) scent for any occasion, any time, and any season (best in fall/winter). The smell can be found by someone just as good and more affordable, I’m sure, but if you enjoy and appreciate the PDM DNA, this one might be worth the price of admission.
Strong scent l like it. I was giving a 8 out of 10 by a female Co worker
Came quick and smells amazing
Some really nice notes but overall smells too much like a candle. Would be great to spray around the house for the holidays but not on my skin.
