How? I Apply the Fragrance

3 - 9

This was the first fragrance I put on in Vegas the story I keep bringing up. Yeah before all of the mud and the mis mash of tons of perfume all over my body, this opening is a brilliant one. You need to go into it with an open mind because it is a very muddled opening that if you have patience with can end up enjoying a lot. This is actually a bit on the risky side for a house like Creed. I want to hate this thing. If they came up with a really creative name I could see this being faster to take off than it has. This has no business having oud in the name, just for that under my branding automatic point off. But I just can’t hate this it is just a great composition. It works, it has extra elements. The blending is very good. Fragrance in my opinion compared to Perfumes Notes I think this fragrances uniqueness comes from the citrus, while I can’t detect any citrus by itself the top is so different from any other designer I have to attribute it to that and the use of pomegranate. These pretty ingredients have no business trying to hide this dirty animalic beast, but they do. They are the beauty. The beast never gets up it just lays takes a nap, but you know he is there just giving off his essence and I like it. The middle is very addictive. There is an unexpected maturity that I am not familiar with in any other Creeds. This actually is a great fragrance hitting all three phases with great transitions. The final drydown is a bit gourmand and nothing like the top. Kinda like a treat after a stunning meal. It’s as if all the elements that were in there just shifted into being sweet.

    1. Pascal, Bring it on with just a little more brash. What argument are you refferring to I did present many let's go one by one. If you dare. Based on the Ferrari comment, I take that it has to do with me saying it's overpriced. My point is this lacks any expensive ingredients in the bottle. There is none to little oud at all in this thing. Last time I looked you couldn't get a brand new Ferrari for 70% off because it is pure quality through and through. Creed's if you go to discounters you can. If they can put that into there margins it's overpriced. We have no problem getting Bogue or Papillon over here for virtually the same price you page. So for Creed to do it means they are doing it just because, while not adding value to the purchase. My analogy would you buy a Ferraris that was actually the guts of a KIA. Yes this is what Creed is, there ingredients are basically those that go into shampoos and air fresheners for a lot cheaper. It's a great composition just over priced for what's available. I would rather buy the Ferrari's of fragrances hand made luxurious detailed with the best ingredients available and have highlighted these very well on the channel.
