    Spice and Wood by Creed

    Spice and Wood by Creed - Upon application, one is treated to a sparkling citrus, supplied by the zesty bergamot and tangy lemon, floating on a faint woodiness, and interspersed with a dry, tart apple. This refreshing opening tumbles to the waiting middle where light spices are infused, namely, peppery mace, sweet nutmeg, and an airy and pert clove, and interplay with a silty and woody angelic root, which imparts its own juniper-like, peppery flavor keeping the spices in check. The pirouetting apple takes on a more spicy jacket. Moreover, the shy white birch of the opening casts off its inhibitions and underlays the heart with its dry, firewood vibe. Transitioning to its pleasing base, rich and pungent cedar couples with the earthy egyptian iris, which along with the mossy and sensual oakmoss and musk gives a petroleum-like shimmer to its crisp woodiness. This impeccable composition is a pleasant and refined journey, but lacks any real pizzazz. Regrettably, the projection flees after the first hour and the longevity is rather stunted as well.
