    One of my favorite fragrances, maybe my top2 of all time.

    I also have the intense (sweeter and more patchouli) and the light (more woodsy) but i find the regular just perfect as it is.
    The intense and light are not stronger or weaker by any means, they are just variations and the "sense" is that they are more night or morning fragrances.

    What type of feedback do you all get with this one? I can imagine older women liking it a lot

    To me it is definitely a more mature scent. I like it but not love it. Himalaya is a better soapy scent IMO.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Tonka Imperiale
    3. Dior Homme
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Oud Wood
    6. Ambre Nuit
    7. L'air Du Desert Marocain
    8. Noir de Noir
    9. Apple Brandy
    10.Straight to Heaven

    I have had positive responses from everyone so far. I don't think this smells dated at all, it certainly doesn't smell like it belongs to any specific era's trend in scents. It's a clean, well-groomed sort of scent, one that complements anything from sharp casual to formal attire.

    It's my SOTD from a sample. I dabbed a little on my wrist last night and I was blown away. I have high expectations for the full wearing.

    I was only a few hours into my first full wearing of this when I knew it was going to be part of my collection. The 10 hr. plus longevity was just another plus.
    Currently wearing: Aventus by Creed

    I wore it for the first time in the office yesterday. After the anise opening, I thought it wasn't bad and could actually handle and like it. Then, the other spices came in the middle stage (which lasted a long time), and I found it a little heavy for me. The dry down was really nice, cooled down, with a little soapy vibe. It lasted a long time on my skin and was still lingering 16 hours later. I just wish there was a lighter version of this. Will give it another full wearing next week before I decide if I should buy a full can.

    Maybe I'm the only one on this whole board who didn't like it. I tested the tin can version last week, and personally just found it way too strong and sharp for my liking. And IMHO it did come off as a little dated smelling to me. I was expecting something a little more fresh, but I think I just found the anise overpowering.

    I'm with you there dude. I just grabbed a bottle of Royal Oud this week. I'm really digging it. Probably the smoothest Creed I've smelled (though inapropriately named).
