    Default CREED GREEN VALLEY?

    OK, I've tried Green Valley in the past and have thought it was pretty good, but nothing special. Recently I tried it again and I think I really like it...

    Any thoughts or experiences from Green Valley users?

    I've tried it before, and thought that it smelled alot like Fahrenheit!

    I've tried over 15 Creeds and besides MI and BdP, Green Valley was the only other one I liked. Just ordered a big bottle from PerfumeBay.

    I'm constantly on the lookout for "fresh" scents. I don't go out that much at night anymore so I am always looking for scents to wear either to work, after the gym, shopping etc. For nighttime, my BdP, Piper Nigrum, and M7 will probably be more than I'll ever need. But Green Valley really caught me as being a very fresh, almost minty, scent that dries down very well on me without being cloying or too sweet. Can't really comment on the longevity yet as I've only gone by a sample vial. I really wanted to like Himalaya, GIT, and SMW, which are supposed to be "fresh" scents, but they dried down very badly one me.

    So as of right now, Green Valley will be in my top 3 fresh, daytime scents along with Gendarme V and MI.

    I think its great. Definitely not original, but one of the best at what it does. Extremely pleasant green-freshness with a minty edge. Lasts very poorly unfortunately.

    I might be by myself on this one.... Green Valley is one of my favorite Creeds. GIT, New Tabarome, Erolfa, Neroli Sauvage, and Royal Water are faves also.

    In the days since I started this thread, I've revisited Green Valley several times.

    All I can say is that I think I've finally found my "sleeper" Creed - although rarely discussed, this scent is absolutely excellent and I just ordered a 4oz. bottle from PerfumeBay. I have tried just about every Creed and I honestly believe GV is an extremely versatile scent that is truly among the best.

    My current top 3:

    1. Green Irish Tweed
    2. Green Valley
    3. Millesime Imperial

    I can't tell you it's good or bad. It is mysteriously lukewarm.

    I once owned a 2.5 oz bottle but sold it again.

    It wasn't hard to sell, but otherwise ....

    .... not hard to buy as well. ;D ;D

    Yeah, must admit that it took a while before I started liking GV. Its a tad bit minty at the top, but the drydown is just so fresh. I prefer GV to GIT, but my favourite Creed is still MI.

    Ahhhh I promised myself no buying or swapping until the end of February but I've always wanted to try this. I tried it at Neiman MArcus before but thats not enough to get a full taste of this. Anyone know the cheapest place to buy a bottle of this?

    Don't look at me, Adeel . . . I never bought GV.

    I just placed an order at PerfumeBay.com for the big 4oz. bottle - around $109.00 (but you can find a $5.00 off coupon on the web + free shipping over $100!). Much cheaper than the $198.00 (!) charged at Nieman's. I haven't received mine yet, but I've heard on Basenotes that PerfumeBay is a reputable online discounter.

    I order from perfumebay often and I've not had any problems.

    I wanted to like this. I love the mint and masculine feel but from the times that I sampled it, it gave me a headache. Perhaps it was the fresh cut grass smell that induced my allergies?

    I like Green Valley a lot.

    Unfortunately, the big bottle I ordered from PerfumeBay a couple of months ago smelled completely different than the bottles I usually buy in Zurich, Switzerland (at full retail price). I am not sure if the problem was related to different "vintage years" or if the bottle is a fake.

    I would be very interested to know if the Creed Green Valley bottles you get from PerfumeBay are fine.

    Do you think Creed will discontinue Green Valley? At the Creed-boutique.com it`s now only aviable in 120 ml bottles..

    The bastards have discontinued it in the UK.

    I am very fond of Green Valley. Buy now. I found it online kinda cheap - it was about a year ago though, can't recall which site I found it on. GV is perfect for late spring and early summer. And mid-winter, too, when you want to be reminded of the scent of summer. It's fine stuff.

    Yes, it`s very nice indeed, but do you think it will be going to the grave?
