    Default Sublime Vanille and White Flowers

    Hi All,

    Have any worn Sublime Vanille and/or White Flowers? Is White Flower more feminine than Pure White Cologne? Just curious if you like them and please share your quick thought when you have a chance. Thanks All.

    I own the former and have tried the latter. I personally like Sublime Vanille. White Flowers smelled nice but overly floral and too feminine for my taste so got it for my daughter who just loves it.

    To me it is. I actually own and feel comfortable wearing Pure White Cologne/Original Cologne. I personally wouldn't feel comfortable wearing the other one, but people's tastes are different. You might find that you can pull it off (White Flowers).

    PWC is unisex leaning ever so slightly towards masculine, IMO. It's one of Creed's most pleasing scents to my tastes, and it seems to garner nearly universal appeal. The only issue is it's performance, which is poor projection.

    White Flowers is a straight up feminine scent, no unisex about it. It's very realistic, but has a sliiiight sour note that rubs me the wrong way.

    Sublime Vanille, from my understanding, is unisex, though I have not smelled it.

    This is exactly how I perceive it. White flowers is too feminine for me to pull off but I might be able to wear the lovely Sublime Vanille on occasion.

    Sublime Vanille is a little feminine, in the sense that it is a very clean fresh vanilla - nothing to "butch" or "dirty" it up. But if you are looking for a straight up vanilla - this is as good as I have ever smelled. But it is little more than a straight vanilla scent really, so if you are looking for "exciting", this may not be it.

    Pure White Cologne / Original Cologne is not that feminine IMO. Pretty unisex. The absolute best hot weather scent IMO. Actually pretty good longevity too for this type of scent.

    White Flowers - Only worn it once, seemed a bit feminine to me (but the wife complimented me on it - says I smelled really fresh and clean), but a great smelling scent. Worth a try if you want something that leans a bit away from the masculine style.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    Put off of PWC because of the soapy vibe. Shame cause I like it otherwise.

    I'm curious tensor9, can you describe the soapy vibe you get? I've heard this mentioned before but I don't get a soapy vibe at all from PWC.

    It literally has the smell of plain bar soap. Himalaya and Original Vetiver also have this vibe.

    White Flowers isn't more feminine than Dior Homme in my opinion. Pure White Cologne is definitly uni-sex (more masculine than feminine).

    I personally wouldn't be comfortable wearing White Flowers, as I wouldn't feel comortable wearing Dior Homme.

    All three are good smelling but (to) expensive.

    That's encouraging as I don't have any problem rocking Dior Homme. Cannot wait to get my sample.

    Sublime Vanille is definitely very pleasing and from my own experience most people enjoyed it when they smelled it on me.White Flowers is the only fragrance from the Royal Exclusives collection that I didn't really care for.
