I bought this in a split and was taken away by the complexity of this scent..Put in a nutshell it is a beautiful scent. Everyone I have had smell this fragrance just love it. I personally love it so much I am on my second bottle.
Was pregnant with expectation at another Creed scent. Could barely smell it originally and when I did it was gone. I was extremely angry at having bought this. The House of Creed definitely one to stay away from for me.
I must admit I am one who is influenced to a certain extent by reviews. I smelled Terre D"Hermes a few times and loved it. Read that Tommy Bahama was to a certain extent a ringer for this. Figured I could not go wrong in buying it. Well I would leave the glowing terms and the finite breakdown of the pyramid to the experts. All I wish to say is, this is a really really beautiful scent and I would not be buying Terre D'Hermes as I now have this. It is almost addictive. My purchase came a few hours ago and I am smelling myself continuously.
I am thankful YSL did not ask for some of these reviews before he marketed his product. Most can barely differentiate the everyday smells in their houses,but this giant has been torn apart and given parallels to everything. Hooray once again for Kouros,it dares to be different and thank heaven it's history has proven it to be a Winner. Great Scent, it proves itself.
Initial burst is of sandalwood, One minute after that it disappears into history with nothing left to remind you it was once there. Would reccomend only if one has clogged nostrils and needs to open them. Plain water may just do the same also.
