    Today I got a good 9 hours out of Original Santal. I put it on at 4pm and at 1am it is now barely detectable. I would have probably gotten more but I had to shower. It projected loudly for the first 5 hours or so. I'm very impressed with this one and I'm glad to have it in the collection.

    Not my favourite Creed, I find it too sweet... Then again, I like my sandalwood more smoky...

    Ok so 13 hours after application I can still smell OS on my left wrist. Incredible.

    I have probably 20 Creeds but this one and Tabarome Millesime I don't like at all. No matter what everyone say this is just more expensive JOOP to me.
    Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.

    Okay so 14.5 hours in I can still smell it on my wrist. This stuff outlasts Aventus! It's actually scary how long this lasts. Creeds aren't supposed to have this kind of longevity!

    Still one of my favourites, but I envy the longevity you seem to be getting with it. Not the case for me.

    I can still smell it but it's faint. It stopped projecting at about the 9 hour mark and hung close to the skin.

    OS is an awesome scent. 2 sprays is adequate, 3 sprays is the max you can get by with.

    Just sprayed OS on me today to compare with Individuel. They are extremely similar. I can't imagine someone liking one and not the other. Definitely worth the time to try if you like OS. Also just realized Pierre created Individuel for Mont Blanc in 2003 and later did OS for Creed in 2005.

    I usually end up liking this, but it overstays it's welcome. Still, nice cold weather (to me) Creed.

    I like it but it doesn't wow me. Also don't think it smells anything like Joop!

    Frankly, between the two, I think I might like Joop! better because it has a strong floral component that OS doesn't have (except for the lavender).

    Am I the only one that sees a similarity with Himalaya? I think it's soapy freshness.

    Don't get that association personally, but I can see how you might. I'd have to say, Original Santal is MUCH better than Himalaya to my nose. OS is an absolute beauty.

    Joop! Homme does have a bit of cinamon in it, but other than that it's far too sweet and synthetic to remind me of OS.
    I do wear JOOP! Hommer once in a while though......

    If you want a fragrance that's really really close to OS, then get Mont Blanc Individuel - after 10 minutes on your skin this fragrance is very very close to OS.

    You think it's a coincidence that Pierre Bourdon made Cool Water (Creed GIT), Kouros (Creed Orange Spice) and Individuel (Creed OS) ?

    Excellent review! I used 3 sprays to test this past Saturday morning. 1 behind each ear and 1 on my inside forearm. WOW! I had it on a good 10 hours before showering and a trace still on my forearm afterwards. I woke up Sunday and went to the gym, my sweat reactivated what was behind my ears. I couldn't believe it. My girlfriend said I was very huggable on Saturday but I didn't put 2 and 2 together, duh. It had to be the Original Santal.

    I ordered a 2.5 from Creed Boutique. I spent the extra money because I'm sure this UNIQUE scent sits around the discount warehouses. Also, I was ripped off from a discounter and do not want to go through that again.
    Don't buy it if you haven't tested it. It's all about skin chemistry, I have oily skin so it worked well for me. I never liked JOOP! But I love this one....I'm impatiently waiting.

    What a wonderful world you are missing out on! Get out there and try a few! Dont let the hype nor the gripe deter you. They really are great IMO.

    its only flaw is that it copies Inviduel couple years later and sells at much higher prices, and by copy I mean 99% similar, by far the most similar colognes I've ever smelled (way more so than GIT and Cool Water).

    I used to like Creed Original Santal some years back... but probably not that "original" any more.

    Seriously? I loved this scent, and bought an entire bottle myself.

    Unfortunately it llasted about 45 mins on my skin. Literally. And instantly returned the bottle.
