    Default Knize 10 or Creed Royal English Leather

    Both a couple of old school respected leather scents.. Probably a bit "mature" (but so am I).

    Which of these two are a better work scent?

    Flip a coin, they are both fantastic for work. I am wearing Royal English Leather today, wore Knize Ten a few days ago.
    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

    Well, my choice would be Knize (if possible gold).
    I slightly get why everso went so beserk about it

    Knize is a little less common as well. You can't really go wrong with it.

    Both are wonderful. At work especially, my recommendation would be to go light on the trigger for each of these, especially the Knize.

    I agree--they are both great, in moderation. K10 can be got a lot cheaper than REL although it is harder to find.

    I use both tend to go lighter on knize 10.

    To me, both of them are very mature (in an admirable way) and I am truly impressed by both, so I could hardly decide between only one of the two, since, in highly different way and because of very different fragrance notes, I perceive both as masterpieces.

    I think REL is much better than Knize Ten, but I hate leathers to start with!

    Of those two REL is the better option IMO. I think 10 tries a little too hard with the birch tar.

    Yes. Intense. Somewhat sweeter/floral than I thought it would be.

    Have given REL a quick sniff, but need to retry it. Liked it. Old school. Concerned about longevity, but see some positive remarks from people I trust.

    Cool Re: Knize 10 or Creed Royal English Leather

    I admire Knize Ten as an interesting composition but the tar/ birch--or odd petroleum note--- or whatever the devil it is makes it somewhat hard for me to wear.

    I love REL!

    And having said that, can't you order a couple of samples to see which one you prefer?

    ( Confound it! I hate inserting obvious logic into an argument, don't you? )

    The good news is that unless your work environment is unusual, either scent is fine if used lightly.

    Cheers,

    Thanks estimable MJ- I knew your pref going in. I don't agree with you on everything, but you're one of my "go to" reviewers. The Joop thing...well..."is it a masterpiece?"

    I have tried Knize 10 and found it a bit odd, but more wearable than some make it sound.

    Wanted to get some other input. It's looking like REL which I have briefly sampled. Old school. I like it.

    A similar query posted in another forum came up with Knize 10 smells like "you're entering the movie Cabaret through the garage" vs. REL smelling like an "expensive leather jacket."

    Nuff said for me.

    I personally prefer Knize 10 - even with the previously mentioned negative conotation it has attached to it.

    Either can be worn for work IMO.

    "previously mentioned negative conotation" : Hmmm...Would that be the birch tar/petrolium-like note, or Everso??

    I actually have a big sample of REL I have yet to try but I am very familiar with K10
    I realized I am not a very big leather fan, but K10 is really unique and makes a bold statement, I appreciate it for that!

    I like them both. For me, K10 has more ooomph. REL a bit more mellow and old school. I wanted something more appropriate for business wear.

    I would buy decants of each rather than choosing between them. They will last you quite a while. They are pretty powerful.

    Default Re: Knize 10 or Creed Royal English Leather

    I think they're both fantastic. You can't go wrong with either. Of them I only own REL, though, and it's always fun but it isn't exactly as dry, I think, as K10. That dryness might be better for a work scent, but if you're going to wear one of them regularly at work it won't make a difference because you and everyone at work will get used to whichever you choose.

    Really though, there's no wrong option between these. Both are superior and will show great taste.

    It's really a matter of personal taste. One is not better than the other. You need to sample for yourself.
