Description:
Pasha by Cartier is a very sporty fresh and classic fragrance.
Actually very well known and yet undiscovered. Contrary to other perfumes, the scent doesn't seem old-fashioned to me at all or like a gigolo or ripper scent of some gold chain bearers. It is a fragrance that you know from somewhere else.
Somehow reminds me of the predicate "SPORT" in many shower gels or the Braukmann care series comes to mind or the milky aftershave of the white-blue 08-15 standard brand.
It smells good, but it is also nothing special (more), what it may have been in the years to appearance of the fragrance once.
One simply smells fresh and cultivated with Pasha. Suitable for people who like it uncomplicated and don't want to attract attention.
For me, the scent is too restrained. No trace of obtrusiveness. I think it's the dosage that counts. And I imagine that this would be like spraying a whole can of sports deodorant in one go. One cannot attract attention with a discreet fresh scent! It just doesn't work that way. It does not fit! In this case an oriental with lots of orange blossom, neroli or an oud scent would be appropriate, which has a bestial projection with which you can cloud the senses of others. It is not a barbershop for my nose either, because it is too little casual, too little edgy, too well-behaved and fine, too planed and mannered.
Is for a fine, cultivated gentleman who has never taken drugs and prefers to drink champagne rather than beer.
Pasha is for me seen from the outside not what it is inside!
The discrepancy is too great for me. Profound and pompous oriental unrestrained I had thought. Instead, keep it fresh and neatly groomed and groomed.
I could imagine for a dentist, businessman or tax consultant who wants to smell as discreetly as possible. Mentholated he is zero! There is the edition "menthe", which is apparently mintier.
Personally, this fragrance reminds me of my grandfather, who did not have Pasha, but a product that was similar. Could also have been Carrera in the black bottle with red letters

Occasion:
Office scent, tennis, golf, for newspaper reporters, interviewers, doctors, everyday scent

Season:
Except maybe winter. Maybe in an outdoor pool. You look like you've just had a shower
Age recommendation:
>20
Since it is not a heavy representative, it is also suitable for younger people.
The carnation notes are clearly noticeable at all times, but are also continuously covered by the herbaceous, flat mint.
Similare & Scent twins:
"SPORT"- Fresh body care products.
Surely everyone has smelled it before. "White-blue" Nxxxx For Men for sensitive skin aftershave.

Associations:
Gentlemen in fine clothing, non-smokers, champagne drinkers, champagne drinkers, yacht on the Bahamas, businessman, limousine, airport employee, specialist, jewellery lover

Other:
The price is too high for this relatively unspectacular fragrance. Regrettably, other brands have taken up the idea and incorporated fragrance into their products.

Like New England's Basket-of-Gold
And I still remember that evening in '92, it is vivid in my mind as if it was yesterday, I was going to Switzerland for work and shortly after customs I stopped at a shop selling perfumes and tobaccos. At that time, those items costing much less than in Italy because of the change rate, about 30% less. Pasha de Cartier had just come out, look great on the shelf, and the shop assistant told me to try it. But then I was too young for such a huge bouquet, and then I opted for a more suitable Ungaro II. Fast forward to this era, a few weeks ago, before lockdown began, I was sniffing Pour un Homme by Caron, and the clerk said to me, "Have you ever smelt the new perfume Pasha de Cartier EDP?" and I shook my head. She sprayed the back of my hands with both Pasha EDT and EDP to smell and compare. And that's how I rediscovered a scent that is appropriate now at my age, and that I love more now than then, it is less intense, obscure, and more wearable, tractable, more in line with contemporary tastes. The gross oakmoss is trimmed down to a shadow of its former self, and you now get to experience the richness of the spices and herbal notes. In case you are thinking about what Pasha smells like, try to imagine the 80's strong powerhouse perfumes, for example, Tsar, Kouros, Jazz, and Ted Lapidus. Here, Pasha does not assimilate to any of these, but strength and harshness are reminiscent, more floral nuances and sweet accords are present.

Pasha de Cartier is an olfactory interpretation of the eponymous watch. The name Pasha suggests some Middle Eastern feeling; still, that's not detectable in any of the stages. Every note and facet is carefully and correctly balanced with one another. It is built around a fougère accord, and on my skin, it opens with fresh, minty, and very aromatic nuances. Anyone who does not like the smell of anise-like note, such as fennel, will not like this fragrance from the beginning. It's mossy, raspy, and sensual. Thyme is the first odorous note that punches my nostrils, featuring a green and minty pillar, a lavender that mixes and brings the aspect of barbershop exceptionally well-matched as it usually smacks in the face like a punch. Lastly, a tangy mandarin orange peel joins the party. A touch of caraway provides a rough, dirty, raunchy edge to it. The opening is terrific, it doesn't last long, but that initial blast is gorgeous.

Then it quickly starts to get smooth and dry, as you get whiffs of the incense coriander and woody Brazilian rosewood. It gets into the woody and spicy zone for a bit, still very dry but airy and breezy too some extent. The initial citrus-balsamic blast now toned down to just a subtle veil around the lavender and coriander. The sweetened nuances hidden in Pasha are the result of the Golden Alyssum, which usually attracts various pollinating insects. Not knowing what sweet alyssum smells like, I started doing some research. It's like a potent mixture of pollen and clover honey, earning its name "sweet" alyssum and basket-of-gold.

The dry-down is beautiful as all the previous notes linger on mixed with deep patchouli and moss, giving it that classic masculine core. Milky sandalwood and patchouli reinforce these nuances, and earthy oakmoss makes its entrance, majestic but with elegance and grace. The final touch of refinement comes with labdanum, here much more ambery than leathery. Sandalwood lends its soft, exotic touch throughout and ties everything together magically.

Because I own this and Noire, I've opted to make this the Fall scent due to it's denser wood and spice notes and Noire the Spring thanks to its citrus and floral opening, but truthfully either could easily be year-round scents. Its sillage on the skin is moderate, and its longevity lasts all day. I can't afford to live and dress like a king, but it's nice to know I can smell like a king thanks to Pasha de Cartier!

Stay safe; stay well.

Classic Cartier
I love spicy woody scents and I prefer my spicy and woody scents to have more...well....spice than wood. Did I mention, spice? Too much, I know but Cartier got this right as a very wearable, daily business scent mixed in with a bit of assertiveness. It's not too loud or overbearing. The mint note rounds it out with a bit of freshness.
Young or old, I think you should try it.

The Word We Knew ...
...or from yesterday to today. It may not be usual to open the headline to a commentary with the title of a Sinatra song from 1967, it may seem trivial, but the title on Cartier's Pasha fits like a fist to the eye. In both cases, concerning Sinatra as well as Cartiers Pasha, personal taste plays the decisive role and as "opulent" melting as the Sinatra song, which is well worth listening to, Pasha also reveals himself to the wearer. In doing so, I should fairly mention that I am wrongly using this as a dubious and macho scent to save Cartier's honor. The fragrance is a victim of its name and not of its quality. Nevertheless, I have to admit to all critics that in 2018 Pasha seems to have fallen out of time with his concept of a fresh fragrance and could easily have appeared five to six years earlier. A time, which will not exist again in such a way, coined by a hedonistic basic attitude from today's perspective. Allowed was what appealed and not what the premature "olfactorical-correctness" whispered to you.

As a child of his time, Pasha also opened the round dance directly, almost frivolously with a mixture of mandarin, lavender and thyme of distinct freshness, whereby the mandarin at that time was not yet squeaky sweet, but more herb-fruity, and the fresh soapy prelude of lavender and thyme as a counterpart was opposed. It's like pepping up a classic shaving soap with a few drops of mandarin oil and throwing in a few mint leaves as you walk by. For me, this is still an absolutely timeless fresh start, which unfortunately only lasts about thirty minutes before a canonade of exquisite herbs begins, described here by Cartier as stone herbs, paired with a warm wood note and a rest of the mint from the top note. Anyone who thinks of the cuisine and hearty Westphalian dishes when they hear the word stone herbs should be reassured, because we don't find such rusticity. Rather, a Mediterranean finesse is spreading that quickly offers room for the grandiose base note. Warm-sweet patchouli paired with oak moss really get Pasha going, because even if they don't keep the head and heart notes long, they bring a light veil of their fragrance into the base note, so that we don't expect a patchouli bomb at the end, but a warmed mandarin-wood-herb orchestra, which is preparing to play a big finale and that over a felt eternity, that means a relaxed twelve hours.

There was much speculation about the type of man who in his way was the godfather of Cartier's Pasha and who should be addressed. I always find this discussion extremely difficult, as it reflects the spirit of our time today, which sets out to make a retrospective judgement that can only be fair in the rarest of cases. The eighties and early nineties were a time that, from today's point of view, resembled a world that is no longer quite comprehensible today. Yes, there was a time when women sat languishing in front of the TV and gazed at Sascha Hehn when he once again jumped "gallantly" into his white Golf convertible to rush into the clinic. Today unimaginable? In my opinion, Pasha is not directed exclusively at the macho type of a Sascha hen, but at a male image that was not characterized by metrosexual restraint. A picture of a man, which not only meticulously shaved his body in the morning, but showered freshly and started the day a little bit brashly. Was aware of his masculinity without placing it at the centre of his actions. Pasha could and still can be worn by a large number of men, whether by a young Sasha Hahn, a Frank Sinatras or Pierce Brosnans.

Unfortunately, these times and this world are passé

Unique bottle, minty aroma and average smell.
Not sexy, not really sophisticated smelling, at least to me, but just a nice scent.

I guess I'm not that big into mint as I thought I was, the mint note is there throughout and up front.

Pasha by Cartier, the original one, actually has me thinking that this is more for the over 30 crowd.......a heavy oakmoss scent usually tends to do that.

My body chemistry tends to do well with allowing scents to hang around and project but this one was again, just average. Not that many reviews for this stuff, I guess I'm in the minority, some seem to rave about it but I wonder what their age is? If you go out and get this remember that oakmoss, mint and I believe caraway are the big notes here. Even though mint is here I can't picture this as a middle of summer scent.

A class apart.
Even though this is a classic from '92, I only recently acquired it. And since it was from the house of Cartier, I had high expectations. And man, it goes beyond! There's something about classics that just get me from the word go. They just knew how to make stuff back then. They knew their ingredients really well. And most importantly, I think, they cared about stuff. And more often than not stuff turned out great. Pasha de Cartier is a thoroughbred classic. An old-school woody aromatic fougere, pretty typical of the late 80's -early 90's style. Think Ysl Jazz, Tsar, 1881, Safari etc. Each of them was truly unique in very special ways but they had a lot of similarities too.

Pasha opens on a lemony-minty-tarry green note with loads of lavender to go. Initially a little tart and pungent, just for a minute maybe. Then it immediately starts to get smooth and dry, as you get whiffs of the coriander and oakmoss. It gets into the woody-spicy zone for a bit..still very dry but airy and breezy in a way. The initial citrus blast now toned down to just a subtle veil around the lavender & coriander. It's really beautiful to sense these stages go by. Very refined and mature. No theatrics whatsoever. And as the hours go by you can suddenly get wafts of creamy-dusty sandalwood and you know you have arrived.

Very masculine, very classy. In a way more reminiscent of older fragrances like Aramis or Azzaro PH, in certain aspects (not the notes). It flew right to the top of my most-used-perfumes list. If you like old-school fougeres you have to try this one. It's a class apart.

It was launched in '92 but follows the classic formula of the '80s. The scent itself is a bit usual. But it gives a wealthy impression.

I dig the minty-savory tension it opens with - like having curry with freshly brushed teeth. A pity the rest is technically Allure Homme.
