We continue Creed Week with
Royal Scottish Lavender
Top Notes: Bergamot, Neroli
Middle Notes: Lavender, Clove
Base Notes: Sandalwood, Amber, Vanilla
One of the nicer old Creeds, from 1856. This is slightly 'soapy,' but not in a bad way; the lavender and slight clove note are very fresh. Supporting in the head note is bergamot and neroli, and in the base, sandalwood, vanilla, and a bit of amber. This is not one of the ambergris-dominant Creeds. No need to be too sparing with this, for if you go too light, it will not last or project. A moderate dose will achieve a better effect, and then the sillage and longevity will be worth the trouble. Overall, a very classic old-school lavender, elegant, but not stuffy; a good country or more relaxed town fragrance. Soothing, tranquil, but not sleepy; rather, I would say it is more energizing than otherwise.

Yr good bud,

Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.

Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.

Parfum d' Habit ( Original Version )
Notes of : Vetiver, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Leather
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

66-60 Alt Innsbruck Eau de Cologne
by Kosmetikerzeugung Reinhold Neuner
According to manufactum.com: “This aftershave is a real rarity. Unlike the usual
tobacco-scented mixtures that often use synthetic tobacco aroma as well as a lot of other
unwanted ingredients, this one is made with only the finest Virginia tobacco (Nicotiana Tabacum).
Because of its high percentage of menthol, it effectively cools the skin. This pure version is not
available in retail any more. Only a couple of old hairdressers in Innsbruck, Austria
still order it directly from the manufacturer who now also bottles it in
vintage-labelled flacons, especially for us.”
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

SotD: Creed's Green Irish Tweed. I swear, I just don't like this fragrance anymore. I have a practically full 2.5oz and I've just decided to sell it. I don't know what changed, but I just don't like this anymore. If anyone wants a 2.5oz GIT, let me know.
Y'all have a fabulous day!
Cool Blend by Aramis.
Wonderful stuff, as per usual with Aramis.
