Reviews of Royal Water

The opening is citrusy, old school, mature, gentlemen cologne style fragrance. Later, the drydown becomes a dustier/muskier version of that, never really goes off in an unexpected path. Stays clean, kinda soapy throughout.

Projection is average. Longevity was 6-7 hours on me.

Another shockingly bad fragrance hiding behind a ludicrous price, a brand and political correctness.
Stale candy and potpourri.
Awful.
Wash off job.
You have been warned.

Fragrance: 2/10
Projection: 7/10 -unfortunately
Longevity: 7/10

Outstanding fresh scent from Creed!

Royal Water showcases the expert perfumer's craft by creating a thing of great class from just a few elements.

Though it doesn't come across as unique, Royal Water tips a hat to juniper berries and verbena (not listed above) crossed with mint, a citrus cocktail, and fresh basil and cumin (not listed above)spices, with a musky-waxy-sweet finish thanks to musk and Creed's ambergris accord.

Bright, invigorating, bracing. Has a bold contemporary feel that I appreciate and love wearing in daily casual and workplace wear.

Had the pleasure of getting a sample of this today at saks. I have to say this frag is underrated. While not groundbreaking or mind numbingly amazing it is solid and true unisex. For the prices it can be had at now on the grey market it's a pretty good value so well. A solid 7.5 outta 10

Nothing ground breaking but not really understanding all the hate on this one.

I really enjoy wearing Royal Water. Especially in the Spring and Summer. Very clean, citrus, fresh vibe going on. It's a safe bet fragrance. My gut reaction tells me that if this was a mid price range fragrance it would have a higher average rating.

7/10

Royal Water is my tenth creed frag. I bought it because I was looking for a new addition with good longevity after neroli sauvage proved to be 9/10's a skin scent, though it is really beautiful.

What an underrated gem Royal Water is. I buy blind because I'm not paying retail at Neiman Marcus, the only brick and mortar creed retailer in my vicinity, and I'm too impatient for the ordering of sample vials. I'd rather just wing it and hope for the best. Needless to say I am a big creed fan and trust the brand.

I was hesitant about the peppermint note because I didn't want to walk around smelling like some sugary peppermint life-saver all day. I can say that the peppermint is there, but wonderfully restrained.

The note pyramid is pretty much right on. And you can smell that wonderful creed ambergris base that I fell in love with. And as for its longevity, it's terrific. In those terms it holds its own with Royal Oud, Aventus and GIT, among others.

It is a pretty scent, not terribly masculine to be sure, but I'm more or less a guy's guy and I have no problem wearing it.
Some have said that it smells like something an old lady would wear. I don't find it to be that at all.
The citrus opening is similar to the neroli sauvage opening, and you can smell the musk in it which usually gives me confidence in the longevity of any creed.

I will agree with others in that it seems to fall somewhere in the midst of other creeds, sharing different parts of different creed scents. And I wouldn't call it ground-breakingly original.

Overall, I'm very happy with it.

Edit: Do not overspray. It’s cloying as heck and downright suffocating and unpleasant if overapplied. In my opinion, two sprays max.
