    No this scent is to recent Creed is what recent Rolling Stones are to Early 70's Rolling Stones. This scent is classy. It's charming. It's formal but multi faceted. It's masculine, it's impeccably made it's everything that epitomizes why so many people hold the Creed line in such high regard. I haven't worn it for a bit....I"ll try some on tonight, but this scent is a total jaw dropper.

    I give this one a Hulk sized thumbs-up as well. It took me a long time to come around on this one, but what did it was Mike_C's comment that it is damp and mineral-y. Exactly. Mike's words bring order from fragrance chaos I tell you. Since figuring that mineraly party out the 1948 Vetiver has just plain shined when I've worn it. It is subtle but you can imagine being in it always. A gentleman's fragrance from the days of the early Cold War, it makes me think of white shirts with ties and good quality heavy fabric suits. Diplomacy and shaking hands and all that.

    Subtle and super grand. It makes you act fair in life too.

    I have it but not wear much.
    Too simple for me.
    But I still keep it in hope to understand better with years.
    Mineral qualities are true, and ginger-citrus does not spoil it to the ground.

    Usually I wear it at home - like simple and unofficial clothes...

    I love this one. It has a vetiver-mineral quality that is of cold earth. My only problem is duration. It seems to wear close to the skin and is gone in a couple of hours so reapplication is a necessity.
