A great SA at Neimans sent me out a decant of this & said Creed will be reissuing it in one of the multi-colored atomizers (color unknown). First off, I would say this is unisex- not overly feminine at all. It definitely has the Creed accord and I agree w/the comparisons to Erolfa (which is masculine imo). To me it smells a bit like Silver Mountain Water combined with Millesime Imperial & some watery florals. It is nice but doesn't warrant the high price imo. Since I have a decant I'll keep trying & update if I change my mind. Note-the drydown is more fem but I don't care for it (the watery lotus I assume w/a somewhat unappealing sea aroma). I'm thinking that maybe this is a class of scent that doesn't really appeal to me so maybe I'm biased. Didn't care for Andree Putman at all for instance. You may want to try Atelier Oolong for something similar & much cheaper.

Overall, this is very light and watery and in a similar vein to things like L'eau d'Issey. It does have one added feature though which makes it unusual, to say the least. On me, there is a distinct note of fish. I suspect it's the sea salt note that is doing this.

Ahhh....a delicate, feminine, and a delight to wear.

Royal Ceylan (RC) - a 2006 limited edition release - 1.7 Oz. for $270; at that price, this stuff better be the nectar of Gods itself.
Its hard to describe Royal Ceylan because no one note stands out. RC contains a characteristic accord which showcases central notes of citrus and florals complemented by less discernible notes of ginger, tea and sea salt. These complementing notes give RC an evolved citrusy-floral accord, with occasional whiffs of ginger and salt. The best part of the fragrance is the wonderfully rendered lotus note ...it smells exquisite! The fragrance stays close to skin, but longevity is good (around 8 hours).
RC is copacetic - infact, it smells like a refined Erolfa, which is a good thing. However, when compared to Feuille Verte, it is lacking in flow and evolution, and doesn't smell as arresting. The singular and exceptional jasmine basenote in Feuille Verte itself surpasses anything Royal Ceylan has to offer. At regular Creed prices, I might give this a thumbs up rating, but at such high prices, its a try before you buy..

Sorry to be a pooper, but I am less than impressed by this one. It's a light, watery floral with a pronounced, sickening ginger note that won't go away. I sprayed it on my arm at Neiman Marcus and walked back to my car with my boyfriend. Once inside, I asked him what that fragrance smelled like. He said: "Dirty laundry". He was right. Imagine a small load of dirty laundry immersed in a bucket of water with a little bit of powder detergent. That cloudy, soapy, musty water is the smell of Royal Ceylan. Another analogy would be the smell of a damp rag with a bit of cleaning product of some sort that's been used to clean bathroom floors. I know it sounds harsh, but it's true. The worst part of this fragrance happened once I got home, about two hours later, and rinsed my hands with water: Royal Ceylan became nothing but a very strong laundry detergent smell. Very chemical. Seriously, not even a hint of mustiness to make it a tad interesting. I'm surprised this turned out so bad, as Creed usually does a good job with florals.

Extraordinary! Royal Ceylan is so delicate and feminine -- with a floral top note (that's the lotus, I suppose) followed by a drier note that must be the lemon petitgrain. I love this fragrance and the beautiful atomizer that it comes in! My hat is off to the Creed family once again! This one is going into the pantheon of my favorites along with Spring Flower and Love in White!

I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to try Creed Royal Ceylan at a private event during this Fashion Week in New York. It's delicate and amazing, so gentle. The lotus essence is brilliantly rendered. It has a feel that's at once sophisticated and chic -- but also exotic. And light. I love it. I also saw the collection of five limited-edition Creed atomizers in which the scent is offered. They're gorgeous -- and durable! They'll be beautiful and strong in the purse, backpack or in checked luggage. I went to www.creedcollection.com to pre-order my very own atomizer of Royal Ceylan before it hits Neiman Marcus in October!
