I think it the Wild Jasmine and Mint is lovely. I bought a small bottle and I was longing to wear it during the diversity month of March, but as it was created after the company was sold to Estee Lauder I have no idea who the nose is. I doubt if Jo Malone herself was the nose for the other frags, but there is never any info on that.
The Jasmine and Mint is light and what most peopel would call 'fresh'. The longevity was good on me. As far as I recall the first hit is the mint, but it is subtle and refreshing, not the vulgar chewing-gum note that I loathe. I suspect the jasmine is secondary all the way through, but I'll need another spray to remind me of that. It is cool and lively, and when the weather brightens a bit here I will wear it with pleasure.
I don't know the Creed very well so cannot comment on the suitability of a swap. I dare say JM is cheaper. Have a spray as you pass through the store. Use it neat on one arm, combine it with something on the other.
