    Default Creed Millesime 1849

    The original thread is currently in the huddler.

    I just sprayed some on & was very pleasantly surprised.

    They've moved away from the usual fresh & uplifting motif.

    Millesime 1849 opens a spicy floral accord that immediately captures the attention.


    Top notes: bergamot

    Middle notes: jasmine, patchouli, cedar and ylang ylang

    Base notes: vanilla, oud, sandalwood and musk

    I really tried to like this one; I mean truly tried. But it just wasn't one that held my attention. The florals - especially the ylang-ylang - just didn't vibe well with me despite my love of the natural scent. And the dry-down seems very generic too. Glad Creed stepped outside of their norm, but it's just a rather split personality scent that starts off leaning feminine yet has a woodsy dry-down that leans masculine.

    It's been stated in the forums that it's inspired by Samsara; I totally can see that. But it's just not my cup of tea. Maybe I'm missing something.

    For me it was love at first sniff. Not too floral and not too spicy. Just the right mix.

    a spicy floral from Creed?
    as said above,
    If this bear any resemblance to Samsara,
    I must try it.

    I liked the dry down of this one, but didn't care for the opening at all. Ultimately, it wasn't enough to make me want a bottle, especially considering the price.

    The composition just smelled "off" to me featuring way too much powdery ylang-ylang. I am afraid this one was a complete fail, IMO.

    It reminded me of Ylang 49 but where the Le Labo is typically Le Labo, this is typically Creed.

    Later on the cedar/patchouli

    The dry down is a very indolic white flower accord accompanied by a subtle base accord of creamy sandal , vanilla and cedar.

    But there's something in it that makes it feel like its modern not completely classical.

    Some smell thats not distinguishable as a note based on natural notes. Something completely synthetic. Not bad smelling at all but clearly an aromachemical.

    I enjoyed it very much and may add a bottle.

    Longevity/projection are average.

    My thoughts exactly. I will be trying it again soon though (this time on my skin!) as I've seen a reputable BN is doing this on a split.

    I liked the opening part the best.

    It smelled of white florals cut while in bloom.

    I love this one, but I can see how many may find it too feminine. The ylang-ylang is very prominent and can come across as quite feminine, but I think it is very well done.

    The Creed Boutique in New York had it (I don't remember the number). I think they were the only ones in the US that had it. I am not sure if they still have it or not, as it was a limited run.

    Is the ylang 'banana' smelling? That sort of turns me off about some ylang-ylang prominent scents.

    I had no idea this one was being compared to Samsara. Is the sandalwood in the base as substantial as the Guerlain?

    I too love this scent and ended up purchasing a bottle. Couldn't resist with the 15% discount and the possibility that it may not end up on the grey market. I don't find it too feminine as the woods make it lean towards the unisex side. I think if you call the Creed Boutique in the US, they'll probably still have some in stock.

    Regarding Samsara, I found it very similar. However, IMO, Samsara leans a lot on the feminine side due to the heavy amount of florals; 1849 is not as floral-heavy and has some wood notes instead. That's why I'd consider 1849 unisex and a guy could pull it off. My wife also really likes it on me.

    I never got banana with ylang ylang.

    No banana in M1849.

    I also don't quite get the Samsara association. It's no where as sandal prominent as Samsara.
    Ok both are ylang ylang dominated but 1849 veers in the typical classy smooth Creed direction.

    Wearing a small spray before bedtime tonight. Moderation is key. A short shot brings out 1849"s best qualities. More than that and you get a bit of a bright chemical cloud. It's another good one from Creed. Recommended to Creed fans.

    Love at first sniff for me as well, and had no choice but to get a bottle. I do not understand the feminine references here. Floral, yes. Not masculine, i dont know.

    A noteworthy goal and reward, but if you find it, you'd better jump on it. You can still keep up with the diet and exercise, but don't risk missing 1849.

    Agreed. The 1849 is going away - and maybe faster than the pounds.
