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.

9/10

I dig the minty-savory tension it opens with - like having curry with freshly brushed teeth. A pity the rest is technically Allure Homme.+2
