As he puts it, Green Valley was inspired by Golf and fresh cut grass or so I was told by the lady and Saks. However, to me it smells a little like Toborome Imperial with a little fresh grass added to it. However if you are looking for a fresh-clean grass smell, I would suggest Bond No9 Central Park.
I really like OV and Green Valley. As a matter of fact, they are some of my favorites Creed frags. You cannot go wrong with either one. I would probably add MI, Himalaya, and Toborome Imperial to this list. As far as Mountain Water and Virgin Island, I found them to be great scents but lacking in the longivity area.
My next buys will be Original Vetiver, Millisime Imperial, and Central Park. I am going to wait until I have finished one of my present frags before I buy Green Valley unless I find it at a great price.
