    Default Bois du Portugal

    What is exactly that makes so special and dear to everyone this fragrance?

    Classy, uber masculine powerhouse. I can only wear it a few times a year, it's really formal. Unbelievably long lasting for a Creed scent. Don Draper in a bottle.

    Fu*ckin a, it is masculine, woodsy, smoky, powerful, formal, commanding, dark, mysterious, classy and dangerous all at the same time. This is what the Sean Connery James Bond would wear in my opinion.

    If I had to choose one and only one fragrance to wear, Creed BdP might be it. I love the smell and the way it lasts on me. It's available and, IMO, affordable too. This was the 4th Creed fragrance I tried and the first one that was love at first wearing. Bought a 75ml spray bottle and followed up with a 250ml flacon.

    It hit me with a ton of brick when I first tried it from a vial that Diane (from TPC) had sent me a few years ago.
    I caved in and got a 30 ml decant from Diane, then I bought a tester online (which was different and a flop but still had about 70% of the scent character).
    What swept me off the floor is how CHIC and complete it was. No charting new territories and no oud mania. Just a chic cologne that is so eloquent and lithe. Citrusy and powdery in a very gentlemanly way, and then the killer balanced woodiness. It's perfection. I bow to you BdP. Be always with me.

    It seems that i`m missing this one. Will add to my list of fragrances that i need to buy a decant/sample.
    Was it reformulated too?

    It`s nothing hip and modern about it. It`s a classical, warm, masculine, spicy, timeless, great fragrance for gentlemen. White iron shirt is obligatory!

    I find it to be a very well refined, great smelling scent.

    It's amazing, when I bought my Aventus flacon they gave me a free 1oz of anything else in a sprayer and boy have I really fell in love with this one. It's more linear than some of the other ones I have tested but in a Great way. You keep some of that spicy warm goodness the whole way through and there's this awesome lipstick note to me that's just crazy sexy.

    Totally manly smelling to me but classy not macho. I had to leave the tester at home because I was losing time at work sniffing the cap nonstop! It's that good, just addictive.

    I prefer vintage Pierre Cardin Pour Monsieur, because it's very high quality and it's got a leather note, rather than being a "woody oriental," like BdP. However, for those who prefer the wood to the leather, BdP is great, though of course one might consider it overpriced.

    Bois du Portugal definitely fits the classic masculine fragrance niche. This is one of my top five favorite Creed scents.

    I bought it at 24, trust me if you want class in a bottle this is for you. This would be Gordon Gekko's or Donald Trump's scent.

    LOL....You've just insulted BdP. Trump may be rich, but class is not his strong suit, IMO.

    Wearing it on a summer afternoon might be pushing it, but I have to echo everyone else that it is a great fragrance - absolutely one of Creed's best. It's woods and orange with a dusting of powder. Pure class.

    I find it one of the most refined colognes that i ever tried. Lasts all day on me.
    Love at the first smell for me. I will give one to my father, and im planning to buy one to myself.

    I read often that this is a mellow perfume, which I agree. But do you think is inappropriate for a young man, around 30?

    To me (and this is NO covert publicity, just a personal, albeit very pleasant impression) this scent conveys a feeling of rich yet subtle notes, anything from the crisp citrus topnotes to the lavishly textured, slightly dark yet calm, earthy, almost scenic basenotes

    Wow, now I want to try this stuff. Gonna get a sample and a small bottle if I like it enough since my GF is always dragging me along to suit and tie events. Only 22 though so it will be interesting if I can pull this off without coming across as too 'serious' is probably the word I would use.

    Any age could pull BdP off, as long as it is accompanied by a suit/tie and/or confidence.

    I agree, this is "class in a bottle." I'm not a big fan of the Creeds I've sampled, except for this one.
    My top 5: Sea Mist; Minnow; Crab, tiger, and almonds; Semprini; Rancid Polecat N° 2
