    Question Fragrances that smell rich/opulent/luxurious?

    1) I'm looking for the best Creed that smells like this
    2) And another fragrance from any other house

    I'm looking for something that is nonoffensive and has quality ingredients. I'm not looking for something for royalty but instead something Bruce Wayne would wear.

    From Creed, Royal Oud would probably win this category.

    My nominee from another house would be Roja Dove's Diaghilev.

    Richest/opulent/ most luxurious Creed for me is 1849

    other fragrances, look at Amouage or Clive Christian.

    For me - none from Creed...

    Among other houses - many Amouage's are great; but taking a hint from u adding Creed in your thread opening, I'll suggest Idole de Lubin edt, (if u can find it, or the edp) - it's on the lighter side compared to Amouage's but it's definitely rich, opulent, luxurious & an excellent fragrance (& a stunning bottle)...

    or Gucci Nobile - not cloying, but quite deep in it's base while maintaining an overall lighter feel...

    Definitely nothing from Creed as even their deep scents have a Fresh infrastructure but I can by experience tell you that Roja Dove does this best !! If anything "Aoud" is my pick for what you're looking for.

    Wearing Diaghilev now, and you're right, it is opulent.

    YSL Opium. Vintage preferably.

    Can't think of any Creed that smells opulent. Luxurious? Windsor comes close.

    Ok perhaps I'm ignorant, a fresh scent can't be rich/opulent/luxurious?

    I think it's rare. If you are looking for fresh scents with a luxurious vibe, check out Xerjoff's 1861 and Nio, Creed's Pure White Cologne, and Roja Dove's Nuwa (reformulated version).
