Very classy, sadly discontinued scent from Casran that is commanding some HUGE prices online.

Casran surrounds the wearer with a semi-gourmand cloud, with perceived notes of subtle spices and dark, sweet fruity tones. The result is a thick, aromatic oriental scent, echoing older scents like Caron's The Third Man and Laura Biagiotti's Roma Uomo.

This fragrance can be worn on most occasions, esp. in cooler weather (warmer temps may not suit the density of this moderately heavy scent).

I regret giving away my big bottle years back! ;-< I still have a mini edt, just for old times sake. ;->

There is definite bergamot as main accord in the top notes, with a yuzu-like line note and some added cardamom. A middle note based on lavender's greenness with a touch of sage, which does not really develop well on my skin, is followed by a fairly generic base of woody spiciness. Overall with the good top notes it is not bad, but not particularly interesting. Limited silage, decent projection and about five hours of longevity on me.

For originality and truth in advertising, Casran gets a thumbs down. For the aroma itself, in a vacuum, it is not bad so I settle for a neutral.

Smells like it's from the same neck of the woods as Deauville, Colonial Club and others of the era. The note recipe listed above bears scant resemblance to the very linear yet pleasant Casran. Maybe there's some bergamot, there is a sandalwood-like note and vanilla, of course, since men's fragrance developers nowadays are inspired more by Foster's Freeze than by, say, Rolls Royce.

the pyramid is very misleading. short live slightly spicy/light fruity accord with no longevity or sillage. gone in 60 seconds>>

The worst perfume, i have ever used or purchased, smells like a lot of amber with coconut - more for the ladies i would say, i sprayed the remainder in an area with no human movement.

This one is not a bad scent, but it is quite disappointing. I get a lot of semi-sweet licorice-like anise, chemical powder and nothing much else. The scent pyramid has a lot of notes that I just do not smell, and it is missing the anise that I definitely *do* smell... Quite linear, and somewhat classy but not distinctive. There are many better gourmands out there, but I haven't thrown out my bottle of this stuff from a blind buy purchase years ago, so I can't completely dislike the stuff... Maybe it is the fancy bottle? I would say this is 2.5 to 3 stars out of 5. Not hideous, but also not recommended.
