    Original Cologne by Creed

    The initial lemon-bergamot and later galbanum is light, refreshing but subtle, and the ambergris develops after about half an hour. Very short lived, disappeared after about two hours and clothes, it is always very restrained and close to my skin. Not to fill a room, and needs large amounts refreshed regularly to prevail throughout the day. I do not expect an Eau de Cologne to last long, and some of my favorites, like Hermes' Eau d'Orange Vert, last considerably shorter. Overall positive then, but the frequent reapplications don't come cheaply. My samples were still with the "Original Cologne" label; I believe it is now called "Pure White Cologne.".
