Reviews of Millésime 1849


It is similar in nature to Royal Oud with the addition of floral notes. The opening starts off strong with the presence of ylang ylang with some bergamot to help brighten the scent. The opening as well as the heart are heavily dominated by florals which makes the scent skew unisex. The jasmine will become very prominent at the heart with the ylang ylang still holding on. The base is dominated by wood notes that features cedar, sandalwood and agarwood a combination seen in Royal Oud. The drydown is a little bit sweeter provided by a minimal amount of vanilla present at the base. The florals can subdued at this point but still can be detected in the drydown. Millesime 1849 would be ideal for fall (or spring) weather as it can be overbearing in very warm weather and not strong enough for very cold weather. This is better suited for formal occasions as it does have elegance to it. While the scent has a bit of elegance, it’s something that could get rather cloying after sometime. Personally, I didn’t enjoy smelling this on myself and it became increasingly unpleasant as time passed. The limited edition and exclusivity initially made me think that this would be to my liking but it ended up not being the case. I’d rather smell this on a woman than on myself. Despite this, I’m glad I had the opportunity to sample this Creed.

Ylang-ylang is the make it or break it note in Creed's Millésime 1849: It has a characteristic powdery, banana-like and jasmine odor that some may find off-putting.

Millésime 1849 is a woody-aromatic unisex scent. Patchouli, with its sweet, dark, woody edge, is quite discernible, along with the exotic jasmine flower. A mix of quality woods emerge, namely cedar, sandal and agar (oud), adding their starchy, dry traits. A touch of vanilla adds support to the other notes, as does the musk.

The result: A clean, bright fragrance that stays linearly predictable and moderately projecting. It's great for warm weather wear, and given its laid-back nature, may be worn in most any occasion by men or ladies alike.

Millésime 1849 isn't for everyone, but any serious fragrance aficionado should check it out.

Millesime 1849 has a good reputation, and as a white floral-dominant fragrance, it's bright and pleasant and probably has some unisex appeal, despite perhaps being more traditionally feminine. The bergamot gives it a strong opening but most of my experience of this is dominated by the ylang ylang heart. I hardly get any of the woody base, even after multiple hours on skin. In that respect, it's tough for me to imagine pulling this off on its own, though some to use this as a blend with other fragrances.

As a sweet white floral with some woody undertones, I liken Millesime 1849 to Tom Ford Shanghai Lily, though Millesime 1849 is a little less sweet. Millesime 1849 rings a little more sophisticated by Shanghai Lily is a little more accessible.

Certainly an interesting scent and something that one might ponder layering with, this isn't something I would wear beyond testing. Even if the opening is a little too floral for my taste, that it dries down so floral is a bit of a turnoff and it's a bit too feminine on my skin. Still, a nice exclusive Creed entry (and an expensive one, at $390 for 75ml) and a welcome try if it sounds good.

This is "class" in the bottle!!! The opening is so intoxicatingly beautiful ..it is rich ,floral,gentlemanly yet fresh without all those nauseating aquatic accords the majority of designer frags are suffering from. This is also not a perfume for masses,I suspect only trained noses will properly appreciate it.Very happy I purchased a bottle soonest it came out :)

On my skin this starts as a very sophisticated floral, mainly jasmine and a beautiful patchouli.  Then a complex wood note breaks through, mainly sandal with a bit of oud and cedar.   The base adds a very gentle vanilla in the background, but it never dominates and on me this scent never turns sweet; it is beautifully balanced and lingers until the end.   A nice spring floral is my core impression. Adequate silage and projection, longevity over five hours.

1849 has no top notes to speak of, instead immediately moving to its heart accord of super potent powdery makeup-like ylang-ylang with jasmine support over an underlying green grassy accord that disappears after the first half hour or so. As the fragrance enters the late dry-down the powdery ylang-ylang slowly gives way to powdery vanilla and light musk from the base. Projection is average and longevity excellent at 10-12+ hours on skin.

1849 was not a fragrance I was interested in from the get-go, but as many have lauded it with "Best of 2013" accolades I thought it only fair to at least give it a whirl despite my initial indifference. Now having worn it on skin several times I clearly needn't have bothered. The suffocating powdery makeup-like floral ylang-ylang heart accord is very badly implemented and would normally be a show-stopper. Adding to the disappointing heart accord is the near equally disappointing late dry-down featuring more powder, now derived from cheap smelling vanilla in the base. The whole thing is just a big mess, and one that has me shaking my head at the comparisons by some to Creed's Royal Oud. Apart from the ridiculous pricing on both there are few similarities, with Royal Oud smelling miles better. The bottom line is the 225 Pounds per 75ml bottle limited edition 1849 fails on nearly every level save its unfortunately excellent performance, earning a "poor" rating of 2 stars out of 5 and a *big* avoid recommendation. Creed can't make a limited edition small enough for *this* one.
