    Baie de Genièvre by Creed

    Good, but not outstanding.
    To me, this scent plays it a bit too safe. I keep wanting it to be more daring and assertive... it fails to do that.
    The scent starts with an aromatic note that is just the tiniest bit coniferous and medicinal. I think the juniper could be so much more interesting and developed. What I smell of it, I like... but I want more. There are hints of a tonic, sprightly note full of energy. But that quickly is subsumed beneath the Creed style (rich, languid, a touch of sweetness and fairly dense). Cinnamon leaf adds a spicy note. The dry-down is a cedarwood note with a hint of vetiver. Don't overapply.
    To reiterate: this is a good scent. However, it doesn't wow me.
