i'm not a creed hater for sure, but i did not particularly like the three women's scents i tried -- love in black, vanisia and irisia (no iris in this one!).
also, creed is notorious for being counterfeited so maybe some of the negative reviews on the men's board here on basenotes are due to the 'wrong' juice being tested?
i did not try the love in white lotion, but i generally find the lotions (at least the designer ones) to be of poor value -- fragrance, even if expensive, will last you a year (say, 100 ml) while the lotion maybe a few months? i don't buy lotions unless they are part of a set.
