    Its coming out this summer. It is a blend of limes and champagne. Sounds interesting! There is also another coming out this summer called Royal Aoud.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I heard in early July but, it is not etched in stone. It sounds like Feulle Verte is going to land at the same time. My wallet is going to take a serious pounding!

    Oh thank goodness, they put Ambergris in the base. They must have a pile that they're trying to get rid of to make space to park a car or something - "New perfume? Let's make sure there's Ambergris in it"

    Also , guys, I don't know too much about Creed. The ambergris- is it synthetic or a mix of real and synthetic ?

    Synthetic. Maybe Ambroxan.

    I'm saving my lunch money for this one. My breakfast and dinner money, too, since that's what it will take to pay for the big Creed binge I feel coming on. It's like a new book, or an article in Town & Country: The Creed Diet.

    Hmm, don't forget to take boxing and skiing lessons!

    If the diet is successful, hopefully you'll end up looking like Olivier!

    I've set up a split in the for sale forum for this last week, We have one space left if anyone would like to take it?

    As soon as the flacon arrives I'd be happy to post some impressions.

    And today is the day....



    For the guys involved in the split your 50ml decants are done and will be shipped out to you tomorrow (Friday UK time). Now some impressions:

    The first thing that hits you is the Rice powder basenote, Certainly evokes a feeling of past centuries gone by and has a definate old school vibe which is parried by the very modern sharp and clinical evigorating lemon grapefruit and orange which lingers quite nicely.

    This one is quite understated and will definately polarize opinion but its quite a beautiful composition which is incredibly easy to wear. With it being very new juice I'm quite interested how it will mature as most agree Creed's get better with age.

    I'll give it a full wear tomorrow as I only tested a small amount on my arm.

    I've worn this quite a few times now so here are some observations:

    Creed Original Cologne - batch C0310F01

    Method of application: 2 sprays to the neck
    Longevity: 7-8 Hours
    Overall Smell: Takes some time to appreciate it but its eminently wearable 8.5-9
    Projection: Fantastic for the first 4 hours then settles down to a very elegant skin scent

    Its quite an unusual scent to start as it smells like a fusion of traditional and modern perfumery all at the same time. With a very prominant mix of rice powder and unbelivably clinical citrus it would make for one hell of a great signature scent for someone 25+

    Its composed and so well balanced it would suite a dinner date but it really shines and comes to life in the outdoors. Its not something that strikes me as a one trick pony, Its certainly versatile and has an edge to it that is very uplifting and elegant never offputting.

    Its the only one of the three that fits the royal exclusive moniker im my opinion, Its very confident and constantly whiffs for attention. Its probably not something everyone could wear but its a delightful experience and one of those aura scents that improves your mood when you do.

    A strong thumbs up from me

    Very good review, Mr. Kron. I am excited about this one. I visited the Creed boutique in NYC on Monday - not even a sample there yet. Can't wait to try it.

    $550 for 250ml of this is really shameful.
    It's so incredibly synthetic, in a dominant way.
    Very "Shampoo", very "Dishwashing soap".
    Very feminine-unisex, very "cheap sheer body spray".

    Alot like if you take the plasticky-floral-aquatic drydowns of Acqua Di Gio and Mugler Cologne together, and pair them with a totally synthetic Galbanum note, a totally synthetic "Bath and body works" Pear note, and to top it all off, we don't even get top shelf, natural citrus, like as has been the case with Creed Eaux's like Selection Verte, Citrus Biggarade, Bois De Cedrat, etc.

    No, here we get the dishwashing detergent citrus, much like Azzaro's Chrome, Davidoff Adventure Eau Fraiche, Mugler cologne, with Perhaps a taste of Hermes Jardin SUr Le Nil's tansparent synthetic citrus.

    This is astonishingly synthetic, even for a mid-level designer citrus fragrance. The perfumer here smells like their talent level belongs in functional perfumery. Maybe barely worthy of a place in Hermes Jardin series, or Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria line, at best. But the obvious excess plasticity makes those scenarios unlikely. This synthetic swill is much more at home in an azzaro bottle.

    Horrendously bad, given Creed's excellent history of pristine, natural citrus notes.
    Just buy some Lemon Joy and some floral shampoo. I honestly can't believe it's this poor and offering.

    Spice and Wood and Sublime Vanille are genius by comparison.
    No way olivier made this. NO WAY.

    Do you mean that literally? "comes to life in the outdoors"?

    Just wondering because I had my first full wearing of Aventus today (thanks for that, Kron), and outside, along with the fresh air, it really came to life too! Is this a (newer) Creed phenomenon?

    Also, I'm 21 and am not really ready for what one may call "daring" scents, would you say Original Cologne is easy for a 21 year old to pull off?

    EDIT: WOW! DULLAH hates this stuff and his reviews/opinions are generally near spot on! Worried about Creed right now...

    Ouch. I've been waiting for another review of Original Cologne and you didn't hold anything back Dullah! Creed usually does a solid job with citrus so I'm a little surprised to read this. I'll seek out a sample but my excitement has been dulled.
