    Genre: Chypre

    What some have identified as "metallic" in this scent's top notes seems to me a piercingly tart, even acidic note with a distinct "chemical" edge. There is also a sweet, fruity leather accord in the opening, and this sticks around after the sharp note’s quick fade. The heart is fruit, musk, quiet leather, and spices – ever so slightly reminiscent of Serge Lutens’s Daim Blond, but with more sweet spice and a somewhat animalic background. I have no idea what the actual notes are, but I get plenty of amber nutmeg and at least a trace of cinnamon.

    The Creed “millésime” house accord emerges and moves toward the foreground as the scent evolves, but its character is greatly altered in the absence of the fresh green or marine notes that so often accompany it in other Creed scents like Green Irish Tweed, Silver Mountain Water, or Millésime Imperial. Acier Aluminium is much darker and “dirtier” than any of these other Creeds and hence, to my nose, more interesting.

    Acier Aluminium's sweet amber eventually replaces the soft leather in the drydown, which this scent enters very quickly. That’s “quickly” as in 30 minutes. The drydown is the most conventional part of the development, and it is very pleasant. Happily, the base is enlivened by some of the spice notes that re-emerge in an olfactory game of hide-and-seek.

    Acier Aluminium is ultimately distinguished enough to merit attention, but still safe enough to wear in almost any situation. It's originality is a tremendous advantage over most of the other Creeds I’ve tried. in. While some have commented that it's a winter scent, I find that it takes on a more challenging and gratifying animal aspect with a little heat and exertion. In the final analysis, it stands for me with Erolfa as one of the better modern Creed scents.

    fruity iodine

    It reminds me of an old chemistry salon, full of pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. You enter the salon and start to sniff the iodine in the air all around while chewing a fruit jelly.

    You just need a moment to realize that the place is stinking and the candy is not the right one.

    Pros: none
    Cons: fruits / iodine"

    Interesting But Oh So Fleeting

    The metallic smell is very interesting here, but I get zero banana on my skin - just a generic fruitiness under the surface. I can't say anything about how this evolves because, unfortunately, it all but disappears in less than an hour and a half.

    Pros: Interesting Metallic Scent
    Cons: Poor longevity

    Naughty: Check

    Banana/metallic oddness: Check

    One of a kind scent: Check

    Smells wonderful and hypnotic: Check

    I sampled this about 1 1/2 years ago and now own a bottle. Not sure if everyone will like this smooth cat smell, but I sure can dig it!

    this is an vintage scent and i have to agree with many because this juice has a metallic banana residue that resides there.
