    Question Creed Pure White Cologne Should i get it ?

    Hello Basenoters ,
    I found creedís pure white cologne for a great price imo (330$ for 250ml flacon) .
    Hereís the thing , I didnít smell it and sadly no shop carries it in my city , and no one in my country sells sample.
    Iím running a bit low on my silver mountain water , and sadly creeds here are expensive even in discounters (300$ for almost any 100ml millieseme) as you can see why the PWC seems like a steal especially since itís a les royale and a flacon.

    Now the question is : what does it smell like ? And should i get it instead of stocking up on SMW (went through 1/4 of it in half a mounth)

    I own GIT , Royal oud , SMW , Original Vetiver , Erolfa , and BDP, does it have anything in common with any of them (does PWC have the same muskiness in SMW?) .
    Having smelt Royal water (non-frosted bottle) and found it quite chokingly powedery (over sprayed maybe) ,
    PWC has a note of pear , which i guess would smell like the pear in Moschino (smelt the golden windex one), i dont mind pear , but i found the one in the moschino a bit overpowering.

    Sorry for such a question , but reading the reviews on PWC didnít really give me enough information .
    Thanks.

    To me it smells very clean - like freshly laundered linen. It's very nice and pleasant but it's not similar to SMW if you're looking for a direct replacement.

    It’s a steal at that price. And easy to offload without losing your initial outlay. Nothing offensive about it: IMO pretty safe blindbuy smell-wise.

    Love the scent and that price for 250ml is a steal. A clean and uplifting scent.

    PWC is a great fragrance, and that's a great price.

    There's a lot of good scents in that "laundry fresh clean" category Byredo Blanche, Chanel Allure homme edition blanche, MFK Gentle Fluidity Silver, etc. But pure white cologne is my absolute favorite.

    That said, it's probably the top 5 poorest performing fragrances i've experimented with. A crying shame, so despite the amazing price i'm not even sure I could justify the buy unless you do something like Kaern above me is suggesting.

    I get a good 4 hours out of it(which is exceptional for me even considering it's a light fragrance), it's a great wedding and white collar scent. Safe for a blind buy

    IMO - Yes.

    Well,

    The scent is absolutely amazing. And it lasts for about 30 mins on the air and 30 minutes on the skin. Then it's barely detectable. Pure White Cologne 'requires' a travel sprayer for re-application. I am okay with a travel sprayer, but one thing I think everyone should be warned about......this juice ain't cheap. If you go the travel atomizer route, then you WILL be applying this often with each day you grab it off the shelf. You better be ready to buy multiple bottles if you intend on making this a highly used scent in your rotation. I had to 'back off' my usage because I QUICKLY put a dent in the bottle of juice and then thought about how much I had to pay for it. This performs similarly to an eau de cologne. They aren't misleading when they tell you that. I am a bit ticked off about this actually because this is a very, very good scent for hot weather. Especially dry, desert heat like where I live. It's refreshing and gorgeous. But it doesn't last.

    Thanks guys , i just ordered it , now for the waiting game (they said it’ll take 6-12 days : ) .

    Also carrying a decant wouldn’t be a problem since i plan to have the whole flacon for my use only (that’s if i like it though , but i almost never smelt a creed that isn’t good).

    I live in a hot desert area so a fresh scent is greatly needed especially since heat is starting to rise here (see you next winter royal oud my dear friend)

    The store that carries it is the same one that i bought my bois de portugal from and its legit (white ring o-ring and everything seems legit on the bottle and the box) .

    If you're sure it's the real thing, I'd go for it. I can't imagine you not liking it. I have many Creeds, but it's one of the few that I bought a full flacon of.

    PWC takes some wearing to fully appreciate it. You might not be overly impressed with it the first couple of times you wear it, but it really grows on you.

    It's one of the most versatile fragrances I know of. You can dress it down to wear with jeans, or dress it up to go to a wedding.

    It's also one of the longest lasting citruses I've ever smelled. Citruses typically last a rather short time, but not so with Pure White Cologne. It lasts all day for me and my shirt smells fabulous the next day.

    Hope you enjoy it.

    Just got it yesterday , it’s legit (I think so at least)
    It’s quite light , the immediate opening reminds me of aventus but not the same ,has some kind of soapiness (clean clothes kind) but very subtle , smelling it from the sprayer (thank god i got a sprayer bottle) smells of very authentic flower (don’t know anything about the kinds of flowers) which isn’t feminine at all IMO , smells very authentic and high quality, this to me gives me an open field of the country side (in a very good way) vibe.
    This didn’t really amaze me at first sniff , but i seem to like it the more i wear it .
    Longevity seems quite good (surprisingly) , but projection is quite soft and doesn’t even stay that way for longer than an hour and then become a little bit more than a skin scent , but on clothes it seems to be good enough (just the way i want it, not loud , not too soft)

    Thank you all , you’ve helped me on this purchase which i was quite on the fence about , and I’m so glad that i got it.

    Thanks again .
