Negative Reviews of Baie de Genièvre by Creed

Total Reviews: 5
A little bit of Paco Rabanne and a little bit Christmas tree room spray by Glade and there you have it: Baie de Genievre. Feels terribly dated. Maybe something a 70-80 year-old would wear to a holiday party. Smells of the forest the way those tiny tree fresheners you hang from the car mirror smell of the forest. Why Creed keeps this around is beyond me.

I had to smell this one again and to be honest I do not like the smell at all. It lacks any depth, too light and too bland Vetiver with old grass or something. I would not buy this at all. Definitely not one of Creed's best.

Juniper Berries and good gin have a bit of tart, acrid, dryness to them -- an edge. This is certainly a refined fragrence -- too much so for my taste. Its too refined and rounded which gives it an unnatural feel. The cinnamon acknowledges the excessive wetness of the juniper, but that spicy twinge I associate with cinnamon has also been rounded out. It doesn't have the salty quality of sea air. It becomes slightly crisper in the drydown, but its still been overly refined. I think this fragrence would be a lovely fragrence for a scented bath, and could be very nice on the right sort of woman (an handsome woman looking for a masculine fragrence).

Smelled sheep-farm right from the bottle. But when I sprayed it on my skin it revealed a sharp spicy scent devepoled with strong woody-soapy note. Could be a good office companion if you (of your middle age) can stand it. I can't. Most inharmonious expensive scent to my skin&nose duet.

I have a sample of Baie de Genievre..and I wasn't moved by sorta has a licorice aroma that I don't find appealing. The dry down isn't as bad..but I wouldn't put this one on my Creed's must have list.
