Love in White is mostly iris and powder on my skin, and not a very impressive one (doesn't compare to the fluffiness of Iris Poudree or vast clean horizons of Rive Gauche). I was looking forward to the nutty steam of the rice, but unfortunately that was too short-lived on my skin like the rest of the fragrance. Pleasant for a brief moment but that's all.
I'm taking a lippie off because of the very weak lasting power.

I'm amazed this perfume has such negative reviews. Nothing about this fragrance to me is sharp or strong. To me this is a soft wearable scent that is floral, clean, sweet. I think it is appropriate for younger women. Honestly, I'm not knowledgeable about perfume the way some MUAers are ... I was expecting reviews that said this smelled generic/like nothing special/didn't live up to the creed name... now I'm worried. I love this scent and it smells nothing but expensive, pretty, and comforting to me...i was ready to have my boyfriend buy this for me for christmas but after all the "plastic" reviews i might reconsider :(

My mom has her own special theory that for flowers to be grown rich and blooming they need to be nourished with love, too.
I guess there is much love behind the (mostly white) flowers in Love in White, because it's simply beaming with splendour, like the tender orange light filtering from a semi opened, white courtained window on a peaceful May morning.
The fragile beauty of jasmine flowers arises from a perfectly arranged bouquet of narcissus, magnolia, a very subtle rose and an incredible iris and the concrete presence of rice powder in the background announce an Italian wedding (they use to throw rice to newlyweds in Italy as a symbol of luck, fertiliyy and well being and the vision of the couple showered by white grains falling is simply poetic).
I imagine this fragrance is the bride, she is gorgeous and you can't help but think how lucky that man can be, who'll be able to count on a woman with so much love and strength.
True love must be tender and strong to prosper and grow wiser, the way a white flower will boldly face the cold morning breeze to protect its secret fragrance as long as it's safe for it to explode magically.

One of the few florals I absolutely adore.

I've never tried any of the Creed scents and made the mistake of trying to read about the different perfumes they offer and choose that way. Decided to order "Love in White" and first I should say it is a lovely scent. There isn't the least bit of that cheap smell I pick up from so many of todays perfumes. It stays true and it lasts. It just is too bright a scent for me. I prefer something a tad sweeter. I can see why they say several presidents wives wear it. Its a clean, pretty smell with no sex appeal.

Orange zest from southern Spain
Young iridescent rice husk from Tonkin, Egyptian Iris, Italian White Jasmin, French Riviera Daffodils, Magnolia, Bulgarian Rose
Vanilla, Ambergris ; Mysore Sandalwood
Gosh why does this have to be so ridiculously expensive?? :( This fragrance is simply put, one of the best florals I've ever smelled--and probably the best that exists. I love everything about this, from the regal bottle to the international notes to the house of Creed as its manufacturer. Love in White a bit similar to Estee Lauder "Pleasures" except softer and creamier. I would classify it as a soft floral with creamy sandalwood undertones.The opening of Love in White is high pitched florals. Not too unique, but the dry down takes a completely different turn. The sandalwood, magnolia and ambergris blended beautifully with the orange zest and jasmine to create a subtly elegant, beautiful fragrance. The only downfall is that it does not have good sillage and lasts only about 4-5 hours at most on me. Still does not detract from its original beauty though. If you like floral but are not impressed by the mass of synthetic sugar-sweet floral scents that is dominating the market right now, try Love in White.
Overall, Love in White is the epitome of an innocent, eternal love and celebrates hopeless romantics at heart everywhere. No sultry musk, alluring spices, or stunning sweetness here. It is a minimalist floral fragrance: pure, simple, regal, and timeless.

At first spray wasn't sure if I liked it. When it settled down I found I loved it. I have a hard time finding fragrances that don't "turn" on me. This one is perfect. Here is what it is made of from the Creed web page 'Love In White is a blend of ingredients gathered from five continents: orange zest, rice husk, iris, jasmine, magnolia, vanilla and sandalwood;.

While this scent isn't as awful as some say, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be smelling here. All I get is nail polish remover mixed with an unkown floral. Way too artificial for my tastes.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Oily, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
This is awful! It is a very high-pitched floral, with a very sharp citrus opening. It was so cloying I had to wash it off after 20 minutes. It is not soft--more like nails screeching on a chalkboard. I cannot believe this is the perfume our first lady chose to wear (I surmise politics influenced this choice).
Update: About a year or two later: A new Nordstroms opened in our area. I was given a card by an SA, and had to ask what the beautiful smell was. It was Love in White! Maybe the first tester had gone off (LiW and Spring Flower are both known to turn fairly quickly), but this is just beautiful. I get alot of magnolia from this, with a citrusy open. It is still not what I'd term a "soft" perfume but it is icy and rather refreshing. Definitely buy this one from a reputable source, and you might consider the smaller bottle as it appears to have a short shelf life.

Aspen, Diamonds, crisp ice & snow...This is my signature winter fragrance. Although it's meant for summer, I prefer it for cold months here in New York City.. Love in White is exotic, loud, sexy, & intriguing. Its not annoying like some other strong perfumes.. Been loving it for many winters already.

There are days when this is tolerable on me which are interspersed with days when itís weirdly awful. My chemistry, I assume, but when I try it on paper itís every bit as bad there as it is on me. When my skin is very cold it works better (not an auspicious quality in a perfume with ďLoveí in its name), but it and I are a neurotic combination at best and things are never going to work between us. I can sense that itís probably fresh and crisp, or at least, Iím willing to take the word of those who say it is.

I have only tried this once, but must say I loved it. It is a rich but restrained floral that has no synthetic nuances at all. I kept waiting for it to turn into Blackberry Lifesavers on me which so many modern fragrances do, but it never did. It smelled very expensive and classy and had very good sillage. I didn't have to plaster my nose to my wrist, nor did I have to worry that some scent phobe would pitch a public and hysterical hissy fit in my presence. It reminds me of what perfumes used to be . . . made for real women, not preteens who want to smell like cheap confections, or for neurotic yuppies who want to smell like they just jumped off a laundry line! Beautiful (expensive) but beautiful. Creed deserves full marks for maintaining their line. I have a small decant of Fleurs de The Rose Bulgare which came out in 1890 and they are still making it (truest rose scent not on a bush everrrrr!) Wow, I think I may also be smelling. . . . integrity!
UPDATE: Tried again, picked up on what others have noted, an unpleasant chemical undertone. I'll take a pass on this one, especially for the price. More money for Parfumerie Generale!

I think it is a lovely, elegant soft floral. Perfect for the spring/summer. The dry down on this, is great, a lovely soft citrusy-floral. Suprisingly, this lasted a while about 8 hours which is amazing for a Creed fragrance.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
The thing in that white bottle is definitely not love. The worst fragrance I have ever come across and biggest west of money. It reminds me of sour and bizarre smell of cheap plastic toys.
When I think of a good fragrance I think of softness, beauty and joy. This is not soft, not beautiful, not joyful. It is not fresh, not refreshing, not clean. I donīt even know why someone would create a scent like this and ask money for it!

Incredibly intoxicating. Give it at least 15-20 minutes to calm down then it'll develop into this magical cloud of sweet smelling sophisticated goodness that manages to lift up my mood throughout the day. The lasting power is amazing, 12 hours later I can still catch beautiful whiffs of it around me. Beautifully done and incredibly classy perfume. This reminds me of a modern version of Fleurissimo and Spring Flower although if I had to choose between those Creeds, I would choose Love in White hands down.

I bought a bottle after sniffing it one day at the department store... and I've been a devoted user ever since. I have been looking for a delicious "sweet skin" scent, and this is it for me. Every time I smell it, I think it smells so good that it makes my mouth water. It is a strange combination of salty and sweet, milky yet floral... and I love it.

A bright, elegant, clean-smelling floral. Very pretty and feminine! Smells like Gucci Envy, which has always reminded me of Finesse shampoo and conditioner. I prefer the Gucci Envy because it's much less expensive ($20 at Nordstrom Rack) and has better sillage. But this is by far my favorite Creed scent.

I LOVE love in white....very clean, sparkling and beautiful...Like it especially on a cold winter day!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I'm surprised to see how many raves LIW gets here. Perfect white flower? No, perfect concentrated professional pungent laundry detergent. On my skin becomes like so, but even on paper is nothing impressive and it's actually quite disturbing, cold and head-piercing.
Many Creeds are "cold" smelling.
I have to say that Creed scents are very over-priced for what you get.
That's a shame because they are nice all in all, but so little persistant.

I Love Love this fragrance. Everytime I wear this
someone asks me what I'm wearing. It's a beautiful
scent. I walked into the doctor's office yesterday and
4 different people asked me what I was wearing. This
is a keeper.
