Created in the early 1990's, Casmir is like ordering from some type of fantasy dessert cart. According to Susan Irvine's "The Perfume Guide," the individual notes are as follows:
Mango, Coconut, Peach, Cassis, Raspberry
Rosewood, Jasmine, Mandarin, Cinnamon
Amber, Vanilla, Tonka Bean, Opopanax, Musk
Personally, I can't detect much in the way of rosewood or jasmine. Rather, this smells completely fruity gourmand to me. It's kind of like eating homemade peach cobbler with French vanilla ice-cream; sweet, warm and comforting. There are a lot of so called "dessert" scents out there today, but most smell like cheap candy or canned vanilla pudding. Casmir, on the other hand, is simply delicious.

Definitely better for cool weather.
If you like voluptuous sweet-oriental scents like Jessica Simpson Fancy, Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Abricot or even Pink Sugar, but want to upgrade to something a little more classic and classy, Casmir is the grown-up cousin to those scents; familiar and sweet but with an edge of powdery exoticism and animalic spice.
On paper, this can smell cloying as all the notes hit you at once. It's only on the skin that Casmir unfurls in soft layers like a luscious dessert. The initial fruity burst is very syrupy and sweet with undertones of caramel-ey toasted marshmallows, while a fuzzy powderiness and an oud-like rubbery note can turn some people off.
If you get past the treacly sweetness in the opening, you get a gauzy, enveloping veil that's not JUST vanilla. The musky amber adds some smokiness and depth, but I find the tonka to stand out most of all, creating that soft powderiness. If you like rich, ambery vanillas with a pinch of spice and complexity, give this a sniff. If you can't take sweet, voluptuous scents, don't bother reading any further down the page.
Lasting power is outstanding on my dry skin. Most scents weaken and disappear in about 2-3 hours for me but this has no problems lasting about 6-7 at a good scent strength before dying down to a soft sweet skin-musk for another couple of hours.

If you like stronger perfumes like CD Poison you"ll probably like this one. A classic fragrance a must have in my collection (perfume addict), reminds me of the time when we used to live in Europe my mom would wear this. First spray it smells spicy amber once it drys down a bit I can smell the vanilla/orangey I just got this at Amazon large bottle $30.00. Plus free shipping.

I wore this for a long time in my 20s and early 30s. I think I went through 3 bottles until I outgrew it- or realized that when I sprayed it on-even sparingly- I could taste it for the rest of the day. I used to feel like it was a warm cozy fragrance that could cut through cigarette/bar pollution. Men seemed to love it.
I ask different things from fragrance now. I enjoy the memories of that lovely red box and beautiful little squat bottle, but I'll keep the heavy vanilla scent at arm's distance.

I fell in love with this fragrance on a trip to visit my grandmother when I was 10. She bought me a sample of it and I loved the sweet, sexy, vanilla notes. About 20 years later, I repurchased it and was surprised that it smelled sharper, without the balance of the sweet, soft, vanilla that made it so delicious when I was 10. My advice for wearing Casmir is to give it time. Don't spray it on and immediately smell your wrist; you'll be confronted with an inharmonious blend of ... ick. The dry down is heavenly, and worth waiting 30-45 minutes for. I wouldn't wear this in the summer because it's spicy, but it's perfect for a cold evening.

Very hard to find, but worth it. Everyone else has described the scent - it's hard to review scents because it's so objective. Definitely a staple and a repurchase.

Unfortunately the fruity aspect of this reminded me to much of Irn-Bru (scottish fizzy drink). No way I'm walking around smelling like that!

Wow! I love this!!!! I have always been a fan of vanilla scents. I have gone thru so many perfumes over the years. I was disappointed with the heaviness and the powdery old lady smell that came with most perfumes that have a vanilla base until casmir!!!! I smelled it on a woman and asked her what she was wearing. She was kind enough to let me try a sample from the mini she carried in her purse. I absolutely love this!!!! It is complicated without being overbearing, famine without being weak and warm without being manly. I think this is my new signature scent!!!

Okay, so maybe I didn't expect this to become a fave and compete with my other faves (Shalimar, Tabu and Angel), but come on .. THIS bad? I bought a mini bottle of Casmir off of eBay and have tried it on maybe eight or nine times over a period of two months, every time (except the first :) ) giving it another chance .. but no, this just doesn't do it for me. It opens very (very!) sharp, with this almost repulsive and offending blend of sweet, fruity notes. The smell comes out so strong that I usually panic and imagine myself staying at home (wouldn't wanna be held responsible for allergic reactions, headaches or something), and there have been times where I would panic to the extent of wiping it off. This phase lasts a good half an hour on me, maybe more. I don't get much of the middle notes (which supposedly are mandarin orange, carnation and cinnamon), instead Casmir dries down to .. well, a sweet, indistinct smell of almost nothing. I really can't tell what the base notes smell like on me. The smell is faint and generic, all I can tell is that it's sweet. So, I'm done with trying to like this perfume. Fine, I'll keep it, but I won't use it -- ever again.
