Royal Ceylan (RC) - a 2006 limited edition release - 1.7 Oz. for $270; at that price, this stuff better be the nectar of Gods itself.
Its hard to describe Royal Ceylan because no one note stands out. RC contains a characteristic accord which showcases a central citrus note complemented by less discernible notes of ginger, tea and sea salt. These complementing notes give RC an evolved citrus accord, with occasional whiffs of ginger and salt. The fragrance stays close to skin, but longevity is good (around 7 hours).
RC is copacetic - infact, it smells like a refined Erolfa, which is a good thing. However, when compared to Feuille Verte, it is lacking in flow and evolution, and doesn't smell as arresting. The singular and exceptional jasmine basenote in Feuille Verte itself surpasses anything Royal Ceylan has to offer. At regular Creed prices, I might give this a neutral rating, but at prices costing a credit card and a nostril, it really cant be recommended.
Olivier Creed visited far flung islands to seek out pristine ingredients for Royal Ceylan. If only the end result was as gratifying as his sea voyages..
