    Default Creed Jardin d’Amalfi - It's Gorgeous!

    This opens with a lovely citrus and then blooms into a gorgeous combo of Neroli and Rose and it smells incredible. The neroli in this Creed is the best quality neroli I have ever smelled in a fragrance. Now the scent does have other notes but for me all I can smell is the rose & neroli. It's also a bit on the feminine side but with all the unisex scents about these days I think a man can get away with wearing this one.

    Has anyone else smelled this one as it's been a good while since I was wowed by a new Creed.

    Smelled this at the Creed Boutique in NY about a year ago. Very nice.

    Have to agree, very nice scent. Too bad it is one pricey exclusive.

    It's superb. It's one of the best openings I've ever smelled.

    I do like the scent (enough to have participated in a split of it), but I do have reservations about it. Creed lists it as a universal fragrance, but as you said, it's definitely feminine. But I'm hoping not overly so. The only other problem I have with it is the very late dry down. I get some kind of sour smell and my nose doesn't like it. It's not a powdery smell (like ambergris), it's something else.

    The top and middle notes are good, though, and JdA seems to have good longevity, as all the expensive Creed Royal Exclusives do.

    My favorite of the Royal Exclusives remains Pure White Cologne, followed by Spice and Wood.

    It is amazing. I agree that it leans a little to close to the feminine side, but in the right situations it is great! I am a huge fan of all the Royal Exclusives.
    In fact, I am wearing Spice & Wood at the moment, and really enjoying that - it is the perfect time of year for it! Pure White Cologne is one of my favorites also, but is a warm weather one, and fall is coming fast...

    Just 3 more reasons why Creed is #1 IMO, with no close second.
    Current Spring Favorites:
    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    3. Dior - Vetiver
    4. Clive Christian - 1872 for Men
    5. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    6. Ermenegildo Zegna - Haitian Vetiver
    7. Les Nez - Turtle Vetiver Back
    8. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    9. Creed - Green Valley
    10. Parfumerie Generale - Grand Siecle Intense 7.1

    Yes, I love that one. Perfectly unisex.
    Close second is Spice and Wood.

    Fantastic scent, no doubt. And perfectly unisex. My wife loves it as well as my son.

    Beautiful scent. Agree that it's perfectly unisex. Doesn't feel right wearing it in this appalling UK weather though!

    I've heard a lot of good things about it.

    How 'rosy' is it in comparison to say "Lumiere Noir?" I think LN is great, but the rose just gets a little overbearing to me at times (but that opening...maybe the best opening of anything I've experienced).

    It's not as rosy as LN to me as it's blended really well with the Neroli. And together it's a match made in heaven.

    I really like it. Too bad it is sold in a quite unapproachable method (except splits), both very pricey and 250 ml.

    It is now being sold in a 1-oz travel size for the low price of only $205.00.

    I purchased a flacon of JdA at Neiman's in Vegas last year and decided this year I never want to be without it. But when Creed decided on a ridiculous $70 price increase, I ran over to Beautyencounter.com and was lucky enough to get a second at the old $570 - a 10% coupon code I found.

    I'm always mildly confused when people say this fragrance is feminine. I refuse to wear anything that is even remotely feminine just because I'd rather smell them on a female. JdA is about as unisex as anything I've ever tried, and some of the more popular men's fragrances that have rose in them are more feminine to me.

    This, at the moment, is by far my favorite scent in my collection not only because of the scent itself, but because of its versatility. JdA would be perfect for any situation. Fantastic scent.

    I like this scent as well, but it was a bit too feminine for my taste. I ended up getting in on a split of it so I can give to my wife. She really enjoys wearing it and I enjoy smelling it on her.

    What are the notes for this wonderful scent, BNoters with the better noses?

    I get a lot of pink pepper (a little too much, actually) and a most beautiful citrus in the opening, then it goes into a well-blended heart with the neroli and vetiver. I do not find it particularly feminine; it does feel more unisex.

    I wanted to get Selection Verte for next summer so I asked for a sample and I also asked to get Jardin D'Amalfi. I really liked SV until I tried JdA. It's a wonderful fragrance and great for summer. I loved it.
    I'm still not quite sure on which one I should get due to the difference in price between the two.
    Which one do you prefer regardless of price??

    thanks

    Selection Verte did nothing for me when I tried it. I thought it was just ok but Jardin d’Amalfi has totally wowed me. For me I think the 30ml travel size is the way to go as it's so expensive.

    Selection Verte is OK, but has by far the worst longevity of any Creed I've ever tried. Actually, as short as any fragrance I've ever tried.

    SV has very good longevity in my experience.

    Or, partake in one of the splits going on for 50ml and less expensive.

    How does it compare to Malle's Portrait of a Lady? Is it as amazing?

    Jack Hunter, you've piqued my interest, that's for sure.

    By the way, I found Spice and Wood, albeit a pleasant and refined journey, lacks any real pizzazz. Moreover, regrettably, the projection flees after the first hour and the longevity is rather stunted as well.

    I agree with you D&S, I tried S&W along with the Jardin and it came across to me as a less complex and youthful version of Fredrick Malles French Lover. It was pleasant but not distinctive enough as I already have a bottle of French Lover.

    It is every bit as amazing - but quite different.

    Poal is loud and rose/patch dominated. Jd'A is softer, smoother and dominated by citrus notes. Jd'A doesn't have the sillage or longevity that PoaL has.
