    Default What is that note in creed SMW?

    So i tried creed SMW and wasnt that impressed with the initia blast but 30 minutes later fell in love.Theres a pronounced note in the mid and base that i really love. My uncle and cousin always used to smell like this, i think it was the detergent they used but im not sure but it was the most clean fresh smell.This is what this smells like to me, does anyone know what im smelling? thanks so much for any help!

    oh that may be it! could that be linked to a fresh laundry detergent smell though ?

    I personally dont get anything "detergenty" in SMW, and allegedly its also one of the few Creeds like Original Santal that you can rely on were there are no justifactions for complaints of batch variations.

    I personally get a soft, and very musky black fruit/floral smell that sits quite close to the skin.

    I Hated it so much I laughed when i first tried it, now i appreciate its uniquness and subtletly.

    Not my favourite Creed but soemthing that is simple and intriguing. I think its quite mysterious...

    Well, here are the notes:

    Top Notes

    • Bergamot, Mandarin

    Middle Notes

    • Green tea, Blackcurrant

    Base Notes

    • Galbanum, Musk, Sandalwood, Petitgrain



    Not sure what in here would smell like detergent of any kind. Just kind of a combination of fresh, fruity notes with a musky base.

    Yep, ive been coming around to thinking that way gradually.

    Basic in design but sometimes the best things in life are. Ones thing for sure, once youve smelt SMW on someone, you no its SMW. Its a very individual and personal fragrance... And its not always easy to come across something that leaves an impression.

    Yes, this is a very distinct scent. It's one you can always spot right away, once you've experienced it.

    This is true. I find SMW to be unique, different from everything else I've smelled.

    I knew my mother was wearing SMW from the carded sample I gave her a few weeks ago. She likes it a lot, and was surprised I was able to detect and name it correctly because she told me it's been hours since her first application. It smells great on her, and now, I'm considering buying her a bottle for her birthday.

    Nor do I.

    Well, the musk could remind someone of detergent, but I don't pick that note up when I wear SMW.

    I would say it's probably a mix of notes but it's centered around the green tea. Most likely, the combination of green tea, and the citrus notes, petitgrain, and mandarin.
