I can't really say I get the whole "Exactly like Silver Mountain Water" idea that some people have with this. Simply because it is not exactly like Silver Mountain Water, nothing is.
AR Silver is lemon citrus rather than the blackcurrant and green tea that I get from SMW.
There are very vague similarities there in the other notes and accords, but AR Silver is certainly no Silver Mountain Water.
It is still very nice in it's own right though, and I am enjoying wearing it. For that it gets a thumbs up.
Apparently similar to Silver Mountain Water by Creed but have yet to try that so can't comment. A clean soft citrusy musk, slightly metallic with maybe some tea notes thrown in
I can't not give this a thumbs up, and I can't not make the inevitable comparison to Creed Silver Mountain Water. It seems fairly apparent to me that this was intended as a budget clone of the lovely but vastly overpriced juice that Creed churn out.
Longevity and projection are admirable, the scent, while more synthetic than SMW, is lovely and vibrant and for just over £3.00 for 30ml at EDP concentration, you simply cannot go wrong.
Buy it blind and buy it now!
I'm so glad I found Al Rehab Silver. If you're like me and you don't wanna spend 300+ on Silver Mountain Water, you can't go wrong with this one. The differences are minimal, in fact you don't have to worry about batch variations like you can expect from Creed, here you get the simple concept of Silver Mountain Water, without a possible "bad batch".
Opens up with a sharp cooling citrus, and a metallic note. A slight tea sort of note in the dry down, and maybe a touch of spice somewhere in there. I also pick up on a rose smell, but not at all floral, more green than anything.
Silver has great projection and longevity, and at about 6 bucks for a 1.35 oz EDP, you have nothing to lose. Excellent value, excellent quality. Two big thumbs up.

Amazing discovery! Definetely a must have for fresh/citric lovers. Spicy and cheap, it's really close to SMW - Silver is almost the same fragrance, but twenty times cheaper. Thumbs up for this big deal.
