    Default Creeds: Longevity and Sillage

    Hello everyone,

    I have been going to Neimann Marcus to test the better known Creeds a couple times now. I even ordered a bottle of Tabarome Millesime because I liked it so much. Problem is that I HATE scents with poor longevity and reapplying. Please let me know the sillage and longevity, in your own respective opinions, of the following:

    1) Himalaya
    2) Silver Mountain Water
    3) Millesime Imperial
    4) Tabarome Millesime
    5) Bois du Portugal
    6) Green Irish Tweed

    Those are the main ones and maybe I'll move on after testing them, but until then I would like to focus on this short list. Thanks in advance for your help!

    It's funny you mentioned this because I just sampled all of those at Neiman Marcus during the past week.

    In terms of longevity, here are my rankings from best to worst:

    1. Bois du Portugal
    2. Tabarome Millesime
    3. Himalaya
    4. Millesime Imperial (I was surprised that it lasted so long this time)
    5. Green Irish Tweed
    6. Silver Mountain Water

    In terms of sillage, here are my rankings, again from best to worst:

    1. Bois du Portugal
    2. Tabarome Millesime
    3. Green Irish Tweed
    4. Himalaya
    5. Millesime Imperial
    6. Silver Mountain Water

    There's not too much of a difference between the two lists. *

    Edit: Some say that Tabarome Millesime doesn't last at all on them, so I guess it depends on your skin. However, on clothes it seems to linger forever.

    Thanks to all for your replies. Longevity and sillage are very important to me and it really ticks me off if they are lacking. From your responses I will further look into Bois du Portugal, Himalaya, which I should lile since I have and love Paco Rabanne XS, and also Green Irish Tweed.

    After this it's onto the lesser knowns like Acier Aluminium and Vintage Tabarome.

    I am the wrong person to ask, as all Creed scents last at least ten hours on me. Sorry!
