The longevity is above average. It starts off as mowed grass and then settles with sweet powdery honeysuckle leaves (not the nectar) to a clean smell. If you want to smell clean after a nice shower then this cologne is it. Perfect in warm weather.
Genre: Green Floral
Chèvrefeuille Original goes on with very brisk, sharp green notes that trumpet a wake-up call to the nose. Sweeter green grassy notes follow in a few minutes, causing the composition to mellow appreciably. Behind these come the floral notes, all bright and spring-fresh. I smell lily-of-the-valley (muguet) along with the honeysuckle, and jus the slightest hint of anise, licorice, or fennel seed.
The floral accord sweetens considerably over time, but never loses its bright freshness or becomes heady. I attribute some of this effect to a very subtle and well blended minty-camphoraceous note. Chèvrefeuille Original continues in a linear manner for three or four hours before fading quietly into the background. It never morphs onto the standard modern Creed formula that underpins Green Irish Tweed, Silver Mountain Water, Millésime Imperial, or Himalaya, and that's all for the better.
I give Chèvrefeuille Original credit: it really is original and distinctive in the context of the modern Creed offerings. I can recommend it without reservation as a unisex scent for spring and summer.
A green floral, different most of the other Creed florals. Starts off fresh like crushed leaves, ends up delicately floral, not exceptionally sweet, and still quite cool and smelling as strongly of foliage as it does of petals. Not particularly long-lasting but enjoyable.
Reminds me of green valley. I don't know what honeysuckle smells like, but I like this. It's a little herbaceous, I wonder if its mint, anyway it's a good fall fragrance it'd be good in the spring as well. It's got good longevity and projection for an edt I love it. Too bad it's gone, I never got a chance to reup :(
Meh. A very green chypre (leaves on top, galbanum and moss below) drenched in a sharp soap smell, so the whole thing smells like really really old-fashioned green soap. It's nice enough, but makes me feel sneezy and wears more like a cloud of soap than a "perfume".
