Reviews of Spice and Wood

This Creed is about cedar. Sharp, spicy cedar and apple. The Iris gives it a waxy plastic scent. It isn't a homerun like Aventus, GIT, or Royal Oud, but it is wearable. Trouble is Creed charges as much for this good frag as it does for its Great frags. Not worth the price

Spice and Wood, unlike other modern Creeds, appears more natural smelling with a burst of peppery translucent apples tinged with lemon, and moving quickly to a mid phase of spiced woods with a dose of cedar. There is angelica, but no galbanum. The dry down is soft woods, with a musky element and a faint sweetness.

Among woody fragrances by Creed, Spice and Wood, while having an absurd price, comes across as less substantial than Bois du Portugal or Royal Oud, and is surprisingly fleeting, becoming a skin scent within an hour and lasting all of four hours. Malle's French Lover is a more interesting woody scent of similar profile, albeit more green.

Wonderful opening that dries down within an hour to something that resembles Versace Man Eau Fraiche.

The opening of sweet and spicy wood notes is mature but not dated. Smells sophisticated and luxurious and completely masculine.

Seems most appropriate for work or formal events where you need to reinforce your confidence and respectability with others. Surely the man who wears this has everything in order.

Projection is acceptable and longevity lasts all work day.

I laughed out loud when I first got a whiff of this. It literally smells like some spicy wood! It's not really my style, but I can appreciate it for the quality. It's very masculine- almost too masculine- and is probably most ideal for formal suit and tie occasions. Similar to Aventus, sure, but I would say without the sex appeal and versatility. Glad I only got a small decant of this- that price tag is just... stupid!

After wearing this a few times I've gone from loving it to being disappointed. After the dry down it just turns into the same Creed base you smell in several of their other (and less expensive) fragrances.

It's not a bad fragrance so I'm giving it a neutral, but it definitely isn't with the price point they have it at.

This is one of the few Creeds that I like. It is a nice synthetic fragrance that has the Creed signature base (kinda like Aventus Base).
There is some spice but gets drowned in the synthetic fruit.
I would recommend it if you have the moolah.
