With Pasha Édition noire, Cartier galvanises the original “fougère” accord of its Pasha de Cartier fragrance with a breath of citrus freshness.
And wow, this is one of the best Citrus notes I've smelt in a long time. You'll find many people review this fragrance as 'fresh', which is the generic equivalent of people saying they get vanilla notes from whisky samples. Or lifestyle bloggers referring to a car as having a 'breadth of ability'.
Yet, to it is an unavoidable cliché to call this fresh. It's also not complex. I've not tried to decipher many layers of different notes. It's fairly straight laced, but not at all perfunctory.
Cartier expresses the radiance of the fragrance’s powerfully seductive scent through the limited- edition black bottle, gadroons, and three bands. The golden gleam of the three bands which encircle the cap.
Cartier are known innovators anyone that caught their exhibition Cartier in Motion last year at the Design Museum in London will attest.
It's perfect for a Spring/Summer scent. It's very first date material. In fact this is a perfect first date smell because you want it to last the entirety of the date. It projects well but is not over powering. It's also not too stiff. It doesn't demand your attention.
I like this because a lot of 'fresh' fragrances out there, even the Cartier Sport and the recently reviewed Spicebomb Night Vision by Viktor & Rolf can feel a little too young.
It's a versatile scent. I'd say it's an alluring scent. A sexy blend that has gotten me quite a few compliments so far. It's more everyday than black tie. However, with the fantastic silage, (i got 6-7 hours) then you could easily carry this off from late afternoon 'til evening if it's a casual event.
