Layton vs Royal Chariot Attar - A comparison 2.0
OPENING STATEMENT
Oh God, how I love the Layton - such a wonderful apple strudel with vanilla sauce on a cold winter day when it's stormy and snowing outside. For me, this fragrance is the epitome of security, well-being and cuddling. When I wear it, I get compliments and when I don't wear it, I miss it.
At that time, when I found Layton, I also sniffed at its big brother, Layton Exclusif, and despite my great enthusiasm I decided to go for the "non-exclusive" Layton. At home, I noticed problems with the durability and silage of the bottle, but these were resolved after a few weeks, as the fragrance probably had to mature in the bottle. My Layton (Batch 939805) has an above average durability and a wonderful silage.
Still, I couldn't resist when I discovered the Dupe "Royal Chariot Attar" by DUA Fragrances - a fragrance that, according to reviews, smells even better and has an even crasser durability and sillage than Layton?
He arrived blindly ordered today, I sniffed and tested with my girlfriend to bring you the ultimate comparison here:

FLACON:
- Layton: Noble, elegant and unique. You could smash windows with the cap alone. The bottle from the original is definitely something, as stylish and snooty as it comes across. The sprayers are generous and the quality of the noble flacon lets you hope for a very special fragrance experience. 10/10 points.
- Royal Chariot Attar: The great contrast to the original - simple, silent and silent, meaningless. It fulfils its purpose. The sprayers are also generous. The flacon is tight, the cap fits without any problems and as a customer you should not be put off by the "cheap" looking flacon. Only 6/10 points for the Dupe.

OPENING:
- Layton: In the opening I really smell predominantly sweet freshness, green apple, citrus notes, also something discreetly floral. And yet the fragrance also has a certain creaminess and smoothness that makes you want to fall in love right away. This fragrance is jerky and captivating. You'll be enchanted by the unbelievable freshness of the green apple paired with this wonderful creaminess and this subtle wooden note, which already starts subtly at the beginning. 10/10 points.
- Royal Chariot Attar: Wuuuums and there he is. I really couldn't enjoy the first few moments of the season opener. First of all you smell something very oily. This experience lasts for a few seconds - for me it was about 10 or 15 seconds. And then it overwhelmed me: such a perfect, so balanced, so ripe melange of green apple, flowery freshness and enchanting creaminess. Like a very soft blanket, the scent covers you and everything around you. The sillage is so strong that you can still perceive the scent in a 72 square meter room even at the farthest corner (my girlfriend was sitting at the piano, just now, in the farthest corner of the room and called out after about 2 minutes from "OMG, what's that horny smell?) In fact, the prelude immediately reminds me of the Layton Exclusif: Already here the scent seems more mature, more adult and much more balanced than the Layton. 10/10 points.

HEARTNOTE:
- Layton: But the green apple quickly turns into a baked apple in the heart note or even - as I like to describe it - into a fine, delicious apple strudel, with a thin crispy crust and aromatic, ripe apples and raisins. Add to this a warm vanilla sauce, consisting of a proper portion of cream and sugar and of course the finest Madagascan vanilla available on the market.
Later, the entire fragrance composition is underlined by fine, noble woods, but the vanilla always retains the upper hand. 9/10 points.
- Royal Chariot Attar: Take the above description of the Layton, add a balanced portion of menthol and woods and you get the scent of the Royal Chariot Attar. The menthol is subtle yet there - and I love it. It reminds me of the "older" Layton batches, which still had this note and probably got lost in the newer batches. However, it's not a Vaporub freshness, but rather very fine menthol, which really gets the fragrance going. I imagine it like a delicious apple strudel with a crispy crust, served with a full-bodied whipped cream with Madagascar vanilla - and somewhere in the kitchen there's a scented candle with high-quality menthol oil in it. You smell it and perceive it, yet it never gains the upper hand and always plays only the accompanying and supporting role. At the same time, pepper is added as the candle progresses, which skilfully rounds off and completes the fragrance, making it extremely mature and mature. In addition, there is cardamom, which gives this otherwise so warm scent a slightly distancing coolness. A composition that seems so wonderfully balanced and sovereign that I can't stop raving about it. Honestly: If I didn't know better, I would say that I have the Layton Exclusif on my wrist here. 10/10 points.

BASIC NOTE:
- Layton: The woods described in the heart note are gaining more and more strength without ever setting the tone or leading the sceptre. The woods are simply the elements that carry the rest of the vanilla sauce and the crumbs from the apple strudel to the fireplace in a fitting manner, to then be the basis for the blazing flames in the Grand Finale, which first caramelise the strudel leftovers and the vanilla sauce and finally let them go up in smoke. And even then the nose will still be able to perceive nuances of the richest vanilla sauce, surrounded by smoky woods and a pleasant, three-dimensional warmth. A drydown like you'd expect. Pure romance. Love. 10/10 points.
- Royal Chariot Attar: Again, the woods gain strength, but as in the Layton, they elegantly hold back, carrying the remaining cream and crumbs to the fireplace and paying their last respects - but stop! What was that? Here the fragrance is far from finished, no, on the contrary. While my Layton on my left wrist is fading away so gradually and becoming quieter and quieter, the Royal Chariot Attar remains strong and present. Apple strudel crumb with full-bodied vanilla cream: Yes. Woods that carry this beautiful, creamy melange to the fireplace: Yes. But fire? Does not burn. Just a little, at most. But there is the cardamom, the subtle menthol note and the pleasant peppery spice. At the very, very end, there's just vanilla and a little caramel. But then tomorrow is already tomorrow, no, the day after tomorrow.

CONCLUSION:
- Layton: Scent: A beautiful, no, dreamlike scent. Not ranked sixth in men's fragrances for nothing. It is like a comfortable and at the same time seductive aura to spray on - just like apple strudel with a creamy vanilla sauce.
- Royal Chariot Attar: Layton in Intense: Very close to the Exclusif. Smells more mature, more adult and clearly more present than Layton. Durability and sillage much stronger than the original. Price-performance ratio above average and therefore my absolute favourite
