    Vintage Antaeus is amazing and Silver Mountain Water is terrible, IMO. Not much of a "battle" between these two to my nose.

    I can only tolerate SMW for a few hours before it starts to really annoy me. I liked Antaeus but found the current version unwearable. It's the only fragrance that I have had really negative reactions from people wearing it. Have had friends telling me what is that awful smell and even strangers moving away from me on the bus. Even reaching over to open the window above my head. Eventually I just had to get rid of my bottle.

    Antaeus is winning for now. Just wait until Creed fanboys wake up.

    Silver Mountain Water is my favorite Creed, but personally, I think Antaeus is better.

    Good to see your thoughts on these two Jack are similar with my experience too. I can't take SMW either. It could be the blackcurrant note or the tea, but I just can't cope with it on me, even with one or two sprays.

    I only owned a small bottle of Antaeus once and really loved the bee wax note in it, which is why I voted for it. However, it got too boring for me after a while and before long I was wearing it less and less. Before I finished the bottle, I was getting more soap and a hint of leather rather than the beeswax note so after I finished it, I never purchased it again.

    I actually quite like SMW even though there is a sort of musty sourness to it

    Antaeus was just ok in the Eighties -- but now, Yuck!

    Don't care for any of them but if I had to chose I would go for SMW. My gf loves it

    I'm not sure you are allowed to describe the Creed F^nb*ys on Basenotes as f*nb*ys , though you may get away with this one as some of them are banned just now. ..
    Antaeus for me, I find SMW inconsequential.

    Wow, CA is blowing out the respectable SMW.

    I haven't knowingly smelled Chanel Antaeus. Does Macy's/Sephora carry this?

    Was this over saturated like CK1, Fahrenheit and Aqua Di Gio?
