Narciso Rodriguez for him musc collection
Well hello Hyde65. I'm your scent twin today.
It's my first sampling of Creed's Royal Water. I don't know what to think yet. I don't care much for the opening - 15 minutes later it is nice but nothing extraordinary. At least on me it seems to be quite masculine - I am getting a lot of juniper and musk with only a hint of the mint, verbena, and florals to soften it up.

Dredged this up out of the distant past because I saw the review in Turin's book. It really is an extraordinary scent, and I remember that when it was introduced it was very controversial. (Am I revealing my age here?) It was a novel use of green notes in the top to overwhelm the citrus, and the sweet floral notes and almondy, slightly powdery drydown seemed out of character with the rest of the scent. I guess we would now say that Grey Flannel's nose, André Fromentin, was a visionary. A leap of the olfactory imagination, for sure.

Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
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.
Male irato ferrum committitur.
It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.
