no I wouldn't recommend it based on that.
Selection Verte is an exquisite composition. Very simple, very green, and EXTREMELY fresh. But SlimPickins is right, this is extremely minty and sugary. Think of a mojito.
Now, I don't go searching for mint in fragrances, but I do love Selection Verte. It is without a doubt the BEST fragrance to wear on those deadly hot and humid summer days. It literally cools your skin off and just tends to lighten your mood. It's a fantastic summer fragrance. It also layers well with a lot of other Creed scents.
BUT - based on liking "traditional" colognes, I wouldn't look to such a niche scent. I wouldn't go Royal Scottish Lavender either.
Look no further than Himalaya, Green Irish Tweed, or Millesime Imperial if you are looking to break into Creed.
