    you wear this?

    It's probably too unusual for work, too mature for a club, not romantic enough for a date and too fancy for casual wear.

    I agree (to a degree) with all the situation-setting assertions you made. Yet, for girls 20-24, SMW is CLEARLY their favorite on me, and they want to wear it themselves. From 6ft tall blondes to petite little mulatto girls, SMW has been the clear favorite of all the undergrad girls I've dated over the last year or so. I wish I liked it as much as they did.

    When I owned it I wore it to work, to clubs, on dates, and while wearing casual clothing. It seemed to work quite well in all those situations.

    I wear it on many occasions also and don't see one where it would be inappropriate. I don't get the huge metallic smell in the batch I have. I prefer the tea first and black currant more in the drydown which is what I have.

    I think it is very versatile, and I'd wear it in any of the situations you mentioned.

    My new No.1 scent and I am a woman . I love SMW. I got my first ever compliment on it today - at the gym - and two and half hours after spraying it on.
    The person who complimented me was a woman too - she had never heard of Creed (I enlightened her ! ) .She said it was fresh - smelling ,strong and beautiful . Doesn't get better than that.
    To me SMW smells of blackcurrant and citrus water.

    I think SMW is very versatile and I would not have a problem wearing it at any occasion - casual or not. I do think Creeds and I get on very well (apart from Oliver Creed's Zeste Mandarine Pamplemousse which smells just wrong on me. )

    It does work extremely well on women. My fiancee recently emptied my decant of it, and I'm thinking of getting her (ahem, us... ) a bottle.

    LiveJazz- do get her / yourselves .... a bottle if you both love it. It's really quite wonderful stuff. It's hard to explain I guess but the subtlety and the longevity are quite something else. I don't understand those who have said this doesn't last . I have scent killing skin and SMW lasts on me. I do believe I am now a Creed FanGirl!

    BTW - Silver Mountain Water on a woman is sexy. as. hell. I make my wife wear it so I can attack her! She doesn't mind... she loves it as well. So we share a bottle. We also just got the perfume oil which, if layered underneath the fragrance, makes it last even longer.

    If I had it I'd probably wear it as an everyday scent. Not important enough for situations such as work, dates, clubbing or work interviews. A worthwhile purchase, but, in my opinion, not that versatile.

    I'd also use Montale's Boise Fruite over SMW.

    For me - I find it a little mysterious . It's light but has a real character - it's not just another 'fresh and citrus' scent. It's lightly sweet but there's a 'strong edge' to it all in total. The Creed base is also quite subtly deep. I think it gives off a bit of a 'cloud' around you - maybe aura -like. That could be it.

    Every younger girl I introduced SMW to loved it. They oddly enough all kinda balked at Acqua Fiorentina and Spring Flower, which are the other two femme contemporary creeds.

    This is one where I have experienced some batch variations - it mostly has to do with the blackcurrant/cassis note which can either be smooth and fruity or have some deep metallic/inky highlights depending on which grade of oil they use in a particular batch.

    SMW is a superbly versatile and trendsetting fragrance that alongside Millesime Imperial powered Creed through the 90s - to me it has been oft imitated but never bettered. And if you search the Basenotes archives you will find many long time BN'ers (even ones not huge fans of Creed) singing its praises.

    SMW works well in almost any situation. I wear it at work, and love it. I wear it on dates, and women think it smells different, and sexy. I think it's one of the most versatile Creeds out there.

    And, even though she didn't like it, I can't believe Mimi mentioned Zeste Mandarine -- lately I haven't heard much about any of the gray cap Creeds, good or bad. I kinda like Zeste Mandarine, but like most of the grays, after about an hour or two Poof! It's gone.

    Do not agree. I where it anywhere, i find it has a very orange tangerine fresh smell, with a fresh smell of cloths that have been hanging outside. I have wore it on all occasions , work, clubs dates and casua. I would wear it to smell good around the house or personal family. I have gotten complements from all kinds and ages of how clean and fresh i smell. Also a lot of women like masculine frags but majority of all women like a clean smell on a guy. no matter what the occasion. smw is my go to scent especially in summer.

    It's a light, fresh, lemony blackcurrant and tea thing. Nothing amazing to my nose, but quite well made. I get the printer ink thing from it. It stands best in the hottest summer months.

    SMW is amazing.

    I can wear it anywhere (I'm 26). It gets lots of compliments. It's different than the norm, yet it's still very pleasant. So well blended. This may be my favorite fragrance ever.

    Fresh, sweet, clean, my girlfriend LOVED this one on me!
    I like it, but not that much, not even on top 20 or 30.

    Longevity is good, btw

    Ballpoint pen ink vibe to me...at least in the batches I've tried. Unique, but it's a pass for me; ie, I wouldn't wear it anywhere.
    What I've been wearing far too much of lately:

    -Amouage Lyric Man
    -Guerlain Gourmand Coquin
    -Creed Jardin d'Amalfi

    Unhappy Re: To me Creed Silver Mountain Water smells like a very metallic mixture of wine and tea - where wo

    well I always wanted to buy a creed when I discovered an increased passion for some of the world,s best perfumes,,,(available in my country Pakistan...at a moderately affordable price). I had assumed from my research that Millesime Imperial and Green Irish Tweed are going to be the best ones. Some how I have always attached great importance to popular reviews.The creeds had started fascinating me and I really thought they ,d be something extra ordinary. Sometimes back I dropped GIT, on getting excessive feedbacks that it was "cool water" a bit refined. Cool water , to me is a common scent, easily identified and I thought it wasnt worth it to spend a good deal of money buying something which doesnt evoke that ,,,,,special,novel, remarkable and unique response from the target audience. So I homed on to Millesime Imperial, about which I had heard some "special comments" and went yesterday to buy one. unfortunately it wasnt available and I after some confused thoughts picked "silver mountain water". BTW the shop keeper wont let me test any bit, saying that creeds are not allowed to be tested as per their policy.
    After paying for it, I opened it and tested on my wrist. God!!! I was disappointed. Had been looking for something "special,unique, mountainous adventure, the mystery of eternal springs etc etc". All I could smell was a definitely feminine flowery fragrance. Yes It is uncommon ...I know but its not a man,s scent. I am wearing it today. Its light , and fresh and all that you guys have been saying but its not for men who want to enamour tough females, and leave an aura of mystery and intrigue behind them. I have earlier smelled Royal water by creed. That too was so feminine. Ahhhhhh....Can someone tell me about a definitely masculine creed????
    Its genuine btw, 100% genuine,,,so thats not the issue.

    SMW is far better on the ladies, IMO. The Creed SAs should encourage more women to test it out, I think it would be wildly popular.
