    Millésime Impérial by Creed

    In my opinion, this is THE base for many Creed scents. It seems to my nose that I can smell the notes of this product throughout many Creed porducts and that's not bad. To me this is the "common" Creed scent that you just can't go wrong with. Very versatile and long-lasting.

    Aqua Motu / Motu by Comptoir Sud Pacifique

    For my tastes this is a very unusual scent, but pleasant nonetheless. Very marine-like with an all-around aura of salt-water and mild sweetness. Certainly worth a try.

    Mouchoir de Monsieur by Guerlain

    To me this is the epitome of a classy, mult-purpose gentlman's scent. Wearable most anytime with a strange opening that opens quickly to a much more likeable, long-lasting drydown.

    Néroli Sauvage by Creed

    VERY citrusy, but the drydown it not to my liking. But then again, I'm not into heavily citrusy scents as they tend to disappear all too quickly (as is their nature).

    Orange Spice by Creed

    This item is a more quality conscious dead-wringer for Kouros! Though Kouros is cheaper I prefer the quality with which I know Creed puts his stuff together. Still, both are LONG lasting and potent. It screams romance, which may or may not be your intention.

    Royal Delight by Creed

    I found this item a very potent scent with too many feminine characteristics for me to enjoy properly. A very unique scent to be sure, but a bit "old world", which is not necessarily bad, just out of character for many of the fragrance wearers I know. On the positive side it lasts a long time and the unique nature of it will certainly get you noticed.

    Royal English Leather by Creed

    The emporer of leather scents!! The fragrance does not dominate in leather, but has some more well-rounded characteristics that simply blend extraordinarily well with the leather notes, which round out a very pleasant and smooth drydown. A very potent scent that is certainly not an everyday scent, yet certainly knocks the pants off other leather scents like Trussardi Uomo, Bel Ami, and others.

    Royal Water by Creed

    A good, long-lasting Creed scent, but almost too "floral" for my tastes. Very crisp and clean, though.

    Santal Impérial by Creed

    A perfectly smooth sandalwood-with-spice scent that, although for men, is a fantastic scent on a woman. One of the more vesatile, heavy Creed scents.

    Sélection Verte by Creed

    Although I really enjoy this scent I feel like it is one of the least likely and certainly one of the most over-priced Creed products out there. To me the Vintage line should be scents that are wholly unique and almost unusual...Selection Verte is not. A VERY citrusy opening is ended by a vetiver-like drydown. Nothing out of the ordinary or even all that classy.

    Silver Mountain Water by Creed

    The description for this Creed product says it was inspired by the French Alps and I can certainly see why. The bottle, being white, is a just an overt indicator of the purity that this scent invokes. Beautifully sweet and clean and pleasantly long-lasting. When I first wore this scent I thought it disappeared very quickly, but since then my nose has grown to notice it longer and longer with each wearing.

    "Vintage" Tabaróme by Creed

    A thick, almost resinous fragrance that wreaks of old money and smokey libraries. A classic to be sure, but NOT an everyday scent.

    Tabaróme Millésime by Creed

    A superb scent reminiscent of brandy, cigars and drawing room convesation. Manly, and subtle with just enough sweet freshness to not be cloying or overpowering. A very good choice for an all-around Creed scent.

    Vétiver by Creed

    I'm not a big fan of overly Vetiver-based scents, but this one has a smooth nature, that, to me, puts it above Guerlain's product (thought it is first rate for its quality and purpose) and certainly above any other Vetiver contenders.

    Zeste Mandarine Pamplemousse by Creed

    A very pungent, potent citrus scent that, unfortunately doesn't last nearly long-enough. Effervescent and fresh to the maximum degree.

    Pot Pourri by Santa Maria Novella

    I find this scent marvelous, though I can see how many would find it quite medicinal at first. I like that opening, but I find the drydown too similar to Commes des Garcon EDP and Diptyque's L'Eau. Still, the history behind this fragrance is awesome and worth the cost if you like spice.

    L'Eau by Diptyque

    Mega-spice!! Not as dark as Eau Lente, but still just as spicey and full of holiday cheer. Again, this changes little from beginning to end, which is certainly typical scents dominated by spice. If you get it and don't like wearing it you can still opt to use if for a deoderizer. Very similar to Commes des Garcon EDP and the drydown of Santa Maria Novella's Potpouri.

    Eau Lente by Diptyque

    A very deep, rich spicey scent with plenty of character at the bottom in the form of amber or something semi-resinous. The scent changes little from beginning to end, which is not necessarily bad. To me this is very reminiscent of Santa Maria Novella Potpouri's drydown and that of Commes des Garcon's EDP.

    Marc Jacobs for Men by Marc Jacobs

    If you like Cartier's Declaration, you will be happy to know that Marc Jacobs did too. He simply poured some Declaration into a square bottle and named it eponymously.

    Angel Schlesser Homme by Angel Schlesser

    VERY European type of scent with some of the notes that resemble many classic Italian fragrances. But it's Spanish, of course, intruduced by the fashion house of Angel Schlesser in 2001, and was composed by Swiss perfumer Thierry Wasser (Dior's Addict).
    It opens with the burst of fresh notes not unlike good old Acqua Di Gio - wet grass leaves, rain water and sicilian bergamot. Then it goes woody-spicy with the combination of cedar, vetiver, sandalwood, lavender, anise, cardamon, clove and rice (yes, rice) notes. The base is composed of different woods, white musk and moss.
    My footnotes. I didn't care about it at first, but it steadily grows on me. The more I wear it, the more I like it. Rides close to the skin, doesn't project outside much, good choice for the office environment. Lasts for moderately long time - appr. 5 hours on me. Very European in every aspect. Dry, professional, cool.
    The cologne that smells the closest to Angel Schlesser Homme is original Azzaro Pour Homme (black bottle). Think of it as a new, (fresher, summer, lighter, reworked) version of Azzaro and you get the idea.

    Noir Epices by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

    Frederic Malle has brought the art of perfumery back into the world! The new compositions of true perfumers are astounding. Noir Epices is perhaps the best of the fragrances I've come across recently. It smells like Giorgio for Men (which was sadly discontinued years ago) with more spicy and woody notes. It seems like it would work best in autumn and winter, but sparingly it could be used for any evening or romantic setting. Michel Roudnitska, a perfume genius who was born and raised in the industry, created this gem.
