    Default CREED ORIGINAL SANTAL

    With all the craziness lately, I think my post got lost in the shuffle. Please post any information or reviews of Creed's new fragrance, Original Santal.

    BTW, even the Creed rep at my local Nieman Marcus didn't have any idea about this!! Shows how ahead of the curve Basenoters are!

    What other members have you heard this from? No one here to my knowledge has posted anything about it. Creed hasn't issued a press release either.

    Thank you, Paul. I've never heard of this either. CreedFan, where did you learn about it? I'd like to know about who knows about this too.
    Thanks CreedFan.

    Wow, looks like Az posted with wisdom the moment I posted my ignorance. Great link, Az, as the description looks fantastic. (Image of the bottle too.)

    Here's what's on that link:

    "FRAGRANCE INFORMATION

    Original Santal is an inspiring combination of fresh, spicy and woody aromas. Sandalwood from Mysore at it's heart is complimented by top notes of Cinnamon, Coriander and Juniper Berry. Lavender and Rosemary infused with Ginger and Orange Tree Absolute create a freshness and zest, whilst retaining masculinity. With warm hints of Tonka Beans and Vanilla at it's base, the result is sensational, a fragrance that retains its warmth and depth but is also piquant and punchy."

    I like the idea of sandalwood with lavender and rosemary. Sounds interesting. What I don't like is the idea of orange tree anything. I'm against oranges in scents. 'Scuse me 'bout that.

    I can't take all the credit for it, someone else posted that link on the ezboard right when the switch was happening so I think a lot of us missed it. I can't find anything on this fragrance doing a google or yahoo search.

    "Escentual" posted on EZ Board right before the change over and said it would be available starting May 31st. I reckon the link above is his shop. ???
    Does Mugler make a sandalwood scent....?!!! Let's just hope that this time, it's really "original".

    That's right Eric, I could'nt agree more.

    Further, what a bother this "original" title Creed is using is. I use the Creed Vetiver from 1948 and it is a lot more original (in two senses: older and more creative) than this recent release "Original Vetiver." What a piece of confusion this is. I imagine the confusion is going to mean a drop of the market for the 1948 Vetiver, since anyone asking for Creed's vetiver will be directed to Original Vetiver and SAs will say, "Oh no, sir, this is indeed Creed's original vetiver, trust me."

    Given this confusion I don't see any ease of getting Santal Imperial once SAs are equiped with Original Santal. "Oh no, sir, this "Original Santal" is exactly what you're looking for. It is the original." It says so on the bottle even.

    1498 Vetiver and Santal Imperial kick ass.

    For what it's worth, I contacted Creed and they said that they expected to release Original Santal in the UK by mid June.

    Cool Bottle. I wonder how many of the new scents will follow in this Original series?

    I sampled Original Santal today. It's a cross between XS for the topnotes, Intuition/ Endymion for the heartnotes and Jaïpur for the basenotes. On my skin it's constantly changing. Longlasting. The bottle is similar to Original Vetiver but in red.

    Well, I work in a perfume shop here in Brussels. Erwin Creed (the son of Olivier) came this week to show it to us, the Creeds often visit their distributors in person. He was also in Brussels to work on a new website. Like for Original Vetiver he worked together with his father on Original Santal. Erwin gave us a full bottle.

    If you like Creed in general and hoped for a semi oriental you will love Original Santal.

    Well, you are very lucky! I'm very anxious to try it.

    Can you provide any more details? How would you describe the top notes, the drydown, etc.? Are there any other scents that you would say are similar to it?
