    Question a question for creed veterans

    this year for being such a good customer my creed supplier said i can buy any 75ml tester bottles for £35 , so hence
    i have been given the opportunity to purchase these 5 creeds , but as yet i have not had the chance to try them , the ones that i am relly interested in trying is the
    santal imperial and orange spice
    would you guys highly reccomend these from your experiences for me to buy blind as i cant seem to find any small testers of these around.
    im yet to find a creed i dislike but i always like to find out as much as possible before buying in the dark
    thanks in advance!

    Of these, I would say the Santal Impérial is the finest, but it doesn't have a great longevity. Citrus Bigarrade does have good lasting power, but it is very citrusy. If you like that, it's a very good choice. Bois de Cédrat is quite elegant, but also tends to fade quickly and stay close to the skin. I don't know Orange Spice well enough to comment on it. My personal choice would be the Royal Scottish Lavender. It's quite an old scent in the line; of the ones you mention, only Santal Impérial is older. The Lavender is a real classic, a green lavender sweetened with a little orange blossom and the usual beautiful sandalwood and ambergris base. You could do a lot worse (unless, of course, you really like big citrus scents)!

    Of those I've only tried Citrus Bigarrade, but contrary to Jaime I found it has the shortest longevity of any fragrance I've ever tried, including Orange Verte! It is very nice - tart vitamin C type citrus with some cereal type notes underneath. Quite nice.

    These are not Millésime Creeds. These are Eaux de Toilettes Creeds and bit cheaper (just for the information). I tried Orange Spice (Kouros is a bit like that), Zeste Mandarin P. (very citrus-fresh) and my favorite is Vetiver 1948 (wonderful scent).

    Orange Spice was the last Creed I acquired and it's one of my favorites. It is similar to Kouros, but it doesn't have the offensive elements that Kouros does. I bought it blind by the way...

    Best regards,

    I have to disagree with the Royal Scottish Lavender recommendation: I get a real doggy poo drydown off it after about 10mins, but then I do have an odd nose! I think Vetiver 48 and Orange Spice are the best in the list, followed by the 2 citruses.
