FRAGRANCE | The pleasantly light and fresh Castile by Penhaligon's

halfwhiteboy - penhaligon's castile edt

It is light and fresh, a fragrance that only reinforces my fondness for the Penhaligon's brand. Although I tend to gravitate towards warm and woody scents, every now and then I try on something on the lighter side and fall in love with it. Such was the case with Penhaligon's English Fern, an old-school scent some liken to an aftershave or something that reminds them of barbershops of yore.

While both exude freshness, Penhaligon's Castile is different. English Fern, being a fougére, is more "green" and earthy while Castile is a little more vibrant with its pleasant combination of citrus (petitgrain and bergamot) and floral (orange blossom and rose), with a little bit of wood and musk thrown in.

Castile is a unisex fragrance, by the way, and is packaged the same way as most of the brand's standard creations. Its floral and citrus notes linger but you can get a hint of its warmer base notes once it dries down. This juice projects well and has awesome staying power. Because it's light and clean, it makes for a great summer fragrance.

Overall I love Penhaligon's Castile. It's a must-try, especially if you're looking for something clean and fresh.
