Reviews of Baie de Genièvre

One of the most masculine frags out there. Super clean, with a lovely juniper berry note and clove. A true Barbershop scent, and the best Creed scent I've tried so far.

One of the few perfumes that Creed has a lot of reasons to be proud about, so it's no wonder it's been 'vaulted' (Creed's fancy-pants synonym for discontinuation). Baie de Genievre is a simple (not simplistic) fragrance that has a great idea and a top notch execution. Juniper berries come together with cinnamon and cloves to create a warm barbershop vibe, laid down over a base of vetiver and ambergris. There is adequate separation of notes, a rarefied feel, and this smells much more natural than most of the modern Creeds. I find sillage to be a little muted, but duration is excellent and lasts through a day at work.

Baie de Genievre brings to mind bespoke suits, and the warm ambience created by playing Lester Young LPs at home in the after hours. An unsolicited advice: best if you can avoid the silly prices, you'd rather want to get those LPs instead.

A typical barbershop. Like Worth PH HC and PRPH.
One of the better ones from Creed and does not have that Creed synthetic drydown that most fanbois love.
I would recommend it but only if the price is right (<$1/ml).

With the opening blast Cinnamon Leaf and Clove? I thought I had another Songe d'un Bois d'Ete Guerlain. Rather than the billowing sweet Guerlainade, this takes the London Dry road and eventually settles into the frame as a creamy clean soapy masculine with a whiff of Gin and a left twist of Bergamot Rind. Off in the distance is a Masala
Very pleasant and deserves a starched shirt and a visit to "The Raj"
This is my second test with a 2003 Vintage

A marginal thumbs up for the 2003 version of this I am sampling. The initial opening was promising enough to put on a generous dose. There's a warmth and a richness to it, but there was also a note in the early development reminding me of a car air freshener.

Baie de Genièvre to me is soapy, spicy, and 100% masculine. I can't help but to compare it to Creed's other 100% masculine offering: Bois du Portugal. They aren't really similar, but they would probably appeal to the same audience. Where Bois du Portugal is for a very important man or for a very important occasion, Baie de Genièvre is a more casual, everyday, everyman fragrance. I can understand why it was discontinued as I doubt that it would at all appeal to a modern audience. But to call it dated is unfair. It still works today, but I guess it takes a special man (like me!) to pull it off. I get excellent performance. It projects all day for me. If you like 1970's style masculines, then this vaulted EDT deserves a place in your wardrobe.
