About Green Valley

Creed Green Valley was inspired by the game of golf, nature and the outdoors. Sixth generation master perfumer Olivier Creed played on the French National Champion Golf Team in 1984. Since then, Mr. Creed’s masterful golf swing can be seen on the Fontainebleau Golf Course in the French countryside, not far from the legendary Creed fragrance workshop.  Green Valley was created to celebrate the pleasure and relaxation of the game and the beauty of playing it in concert with nature.

Reviews of Green Valley

The opening of Green Valley reminds me much more of Millesime Imperial than it does of Green Irish Tweed. A lot of saltiness which I remember being a huge part of MI. I must add that it's been a while since I wore MI, but from memory, Green Valley smells like a green version of MI with blackcurrant instead of the melon note in MI. As this dries down I can smell a correlation to Silver Mountain Water as well without the tea note that stands out in SMW. I am enjoying the dry down phases of Green Valley more than the opening. This is a nice fresh green scent that I'd own if I could get a bottle at a decent price, but that seems unlikely given it's discontinued status.

An interesting "golf" inspired formulation from the mind of Olivier Creed.

Green Valley is not a totally distinctive fragrance, but it smells really nice nonetheless. GV has a typical citrus-ginger combo that is amped up considerably by black currant (one of four critical notes shared with Silver Mountain Water, which - unsuprisingly - resembles Green Valley). Creed's ambergris accord is taken up a notch with the presence of musk in the base.

I'd classify Green Valley as a fresh, citrus-fruity-spicy scent with a healthy dose of amber/ambergris/musk. It's a step up from Silver Mountain Water, if you want more "heft" from that very similar Creed fragrance.

Refreshing and masculine, long-lasting and just a wonderful scent to wear for most casual occasions at any time of day or night all year long.

Creed has some nice fragrances , but there's a lot I haven't had a chance to sample yet...To give you an idea of my favorite Creeds , I have full bottles of Acier Aluminium , Orange Spice , and Bois de you can see where my main tastes that I've smelled this ultra green citrusy beauty I'm very sad that it's discontinued and going for big bucks because I would have loved to get at least a 30ml split...totally agree with other observations that this is kind of like a blend of GIT and SMW and/or MI...has that overall aura and air about it that , when you smell it , you can right away identify it as a Creed...bottom line - Aromatic Citrus Green

A very hyped and elusive discontinued Creed fragrance, Green Valley is, as it is generally described, a fresh green fragrance with elements of mint and juniper. I don't really get much as far as the listed ginger note, as I'd usually find it cloying enough to ruin the fragrance if used in any great quantity. The drydown has the signature Creed ambergris/musk combination and is pleasant as usual.

As expected for a Creed warm-weather-friendly fragrance, Green Valley is not especially powerful with respect to projection or longevity, but it certainly has enough of both, on par with their other entries in this broad category.

Certainly an interesting try and nice freshie, but not worth the exorbitant cost one would expect in order to acquire a full bottle, Green Valley is a solid entry in the Creed empire and I can see how some might love it enough to need it.

A basic search shows only one offer on eBay for $250 for 30ml, so pricing is pretty steep nowadays.

Future Jason:

In the early go, this is kind of like one of your nephews got into the juice locker, and played chemistry set with Imperial and GIT. Again, in the early go, those nephews seem to have created something nice. The first hour includes a bit of the "money" smell from Imperial, a lot of the fresh and green stuff from GIT, and a some X-factor that you're tempted to leave unnamed. But since you're bad at that, let's say that it's in the neighborhood of barbershop or skittles. Maybe both.

Later, many of the interesting things fade, and you're left with more of the barbershop, and a bit of the green, and less of the money-skittles. Which means that it gets a bit boring. Which makes you wonder what strange fetishes you have yet to discover about yourself that may include currency and candy. Note to self: explore this and report back to Basenotes.

This would probably be appropriate for many situations, and is interesting enough in the early go for very occasional wear. Unlikely to be a staple.

One of the better green synthetic smelling fragrances I smelled in a while. This has a light pine or mint with a synthetic green note that works perfect. Has a slight retro vibe, and this will get noticed in a good way. Love at first spray. 8/10
