    Default Creed Selection Verte- Worth Owning?

    Hi All- So I'm on the search for an Eau de Cologne. Classic citrus, refreshing eau de cologne. Is this one worth owning (I'm not quite sure about the mint twist) or are there better options? I know citrus tends to be be fleeting by nature, but longevity is a strong plus for what I am looking for. Thanks for your thoughts

    The mint isn't strong, it's very green herb-y citrus focused. The longevity isn't great on me, but I think it's worth owning.

    IMO Yes.

    Nice, straightforward green-floral (but not too sweet) cologne with decent longevity

    Kind of split on this one. I sniffed it from a tester at Nieman Marcus and really liked it because I got a lot of spearmint. Then I got in on a split and was a bit dissapointed because it had a much more pronounced herbal/mossy/old school feel to it. The bottle at Nieman Marcus seemed a lot fresher, sweeter and more modern. I guess it can be chalked up to Creed's infamous batch variations, but anyway, the decant I have is a little too retro/old school for me.
