    Default Creed Orange Spice vs. Neroli Sauvage

    Are these two remotely related? I know the neroli note is a cousin of orange blossom. As Orange Spice is discontinued, I'm curious as to whether NS would be a worthy substitute/descendant. Perhaps another house makes an offering similar to Orange Spice. Thoughts?

    Orange Spice might be Creed's take on Kouros. From what I recall, it's not related to Neroli Sauvage. Actually might be quite different.

    Orange Spice has that urinous type drydown that Kouros is famous for. It's not a light fresh citrusy scent.

    Thanks. Very unexpected. I had heard that Orange Spice was all in the name, spicy orange. I was thinking more a spicy citrus with an orange note. I've seen that NS is fresh without much projection.

    Nothing alike to me. Neroli Sauvage is fresh and pretty, beautiful actually, but fleeting. And as ILikePeeps said, Orange Spice is similar to Kouros.

    +1 on this all the way. I wouldn't say they are related in the least, either. I never cared at all for Orange Spice. I generally like most Creeds, but that was one of the few I didn't like at all.

    Neroli Sauvage is a beautiful fragrance. The opening is probably why most people buy it, because it smells SO good. If only it would last longer. It is definitely my favorite smelling neroli scent.

    Own both. Personally don't find them similar at all.

    Very concise. They are quite different.

    Same here.

    Orange spice is a more clove-prominent, less animalic (if at all) version of Kouros

    As others have already said the two are not even slightly alike.

    Orange Spice is a cousin of Kouros and for some reason (prob cloves and hints of orange peel) it reminds me of Christmas.

    I prefer Orange Spice to Kouros -- I wish it could be unvaulted

    A favourite of both David Bowie and Brian Eno also
