Fragrance Overview

What more is there to say; it’s Creed. The bases of bases. They are able to inflate their prices based on popularity. I don’t agree at all with this. I think they should take advantage of the popularity and offer more expensive natural offerings - oh wait, they would never leave IFRA.  So let’s take $20 worth of juice and charge $500 for it. OK, let’s move on and talk about the composition. It is a great base, and I have already given due credit.

Fragrance Review

This oriental wonder features a unique sweet note on top I have not seen in their other fragrances. It is sweet and then spicy, but this is not a gourmand. It is flat-out pleasing.Viking is fresh and clean in a way that's not annoying. This is a signature that the house of Creed is built on.Soft, fresh, modern masculine: yeah, they know what they have, and they are abusing the privilege until people quit. I really want to build this with naturals. Well, in another life, perhaps.Do modern perfumers even take time to put their nose on Creed? I mean, to release some of the base notes that I went through smelling. There is a level of refinement that is cheapened in the form of hype and riding trends. The list of perfumes coming out that just shout iso e and ambroxan is an abomination to this industry. It's cheap to rely on a couple of ingredients to make your fragrance shout and be just OK with people that have no clue about this level of refinement. Don't get me wrong; this level of refinement is amazing. The blend is just in another galaxy."Viking, a fiery men’s fragrance that bottles the fearless spirit of boundless exploration for the modern man who goes against the grain. Inspired by the incredibly crafted longships, a centerpiece of the Viking Age and one of the greatest design feats of the ninth century. A symbol of voyage and undeniable perseverance, longships were carefully designed for the skilled seaman who embodied unbridled determination to conquer. Viking marks the brand’s first major men’s scent since the introduction of the cult best-selling Aventus in 2010" - a note from the brand.Viking was launched in 2017. The nose behind this fragrance is Olivier Creed.Perfume rating: 3.50 out of 5 with 840 votes.TOP NOTES

  1. Yeah, this is the one that should have been called “The Office.” Nicely blended, shirt/tie scent. But don’t call it Viking; come on! And the price is stupid, but whatever, I know ppl will pay it.

  2. Is this video sped up?  My player says normal, but it seems you're zipping through the review.  I agree that a fragrance should be judged @ it's retail price.  If companies have the audacity to charge monstrous prices, that fact should be taken into account when evaluating.

    1. Nice observation. Yes I have been playing around with video speed. It has actually greatly affected retention time in a good way on videos. It's amazing what people will pay for certain things based on marketing.
