I bought a creed love in white soap and it is a superb soap with a most beautiful scent which lingers on the bathroom continually. It is tripled milled so it lasts a lot longer than normal soaps and to me its worth its weight in gold. An absolutely beautiful product which has natural pure scent of flowers. Highly recommended!

If I were trapped on a desert island and could only have one fragrance, this would be the one. I am stuck on this fragrance! It is simply lovely, fresh, and beautiful! I love how I smell when I wear this.
I find fragrance to be last a long time too (6-8 hours).

Definitely not a cheap product, but I think it's worth it.
I absolutely love white florals, I love sea salt air, and I love soapy scents. Love In White definitely blends every element together in the most perfect way.
I wore it specifically for my wedding day, and have not regretted it eversince.

This was the first and only perfume to make me cry. My mom passed away ten years ago and l bottled it all away.l recieved a sample and it was instantly her. I felt so many emotions! Joy, pain, regret, sorrow! So many tears driving to work! So many things l had held inside for years. All from a perfume! I suppose this isn't a review, perhaps a rememberance of how emotional scent can be. I will scrounge and save for this, because its the closest thing to love bottled. Luca Turin be damned.

Ah, I see below that other "noses" have a familiarity with mine.. we smell the same stuff! :o)
I had such high expectations on Love in White ...
The story is that a dear Friend of mine said her boss (a lday w/ money) was wearing that perfume an she so much liked it, that is was so unique and persistant and fresh and whatever. So - curious as I am - I said to myself "I have to sample this too". Task not easy at all considered that Creed is hard to find in my area, so thanks to a lovely MUAer I got this in a swap. And so I could try it.
End of the story. No matter how much I try to persuade myself it is not bad, well, this frag is bad.
Screams aloud CHEAP. It is a loud, obnoxious copy of EL Pleasures and also RL Romance (the 2 being very similar by the way).
Nothing elegant in this frag. Very heady, very loud, very artificial on the Daffodil and Magnolia notes, you barely can smell anything else (where are the vanilla and musk basenotes?). I almost suffocated.
Cheap and mainstream.
a Big NO for me.

Could there ever exist a perfect white floral? Could that white floral ever catch an attention of an earthy iris-lover like me? It seems like this has won my heart, I am absolutely shocked. I just received it in a recent swap, and I can't get over how beautiful this is! I would never buy it myself, not because of the price tag, but because it is described as a white floral, which is not what I am looking for in perfumes. I've decided to give this one a try, and I have fallen head over heals with this one.
I am just going to say that this perfume manages to stay perfectly "white", subtle, elegant and perfectly balanced with a little twist to it. It's perfect and gorgeous. It starts out a bit salty, white florals combined with sea salt. I also swear I can smell some iris in it, but it is not a dirrrty iris that we know from other scents, it is toned down and behaving itself pretty well in this fragrance! This is one gorgeous fragrance, if dreams had a scent - this would be it. It makes me feel comfortable, dreamy and relaxed. Two thumbs up!

I must say, this one shocks me with how much I hate it. To me, it smells like Estee Lauder's Pleasures, but made with cheap and plastic smelling florals. I like Pleasures and other white florals on occasion, but LIW has a loud, shrieking note in the opening that was an instant headache. I can't imagine ever leaving it on long enough to get to the drydown - I couldn't wait to scrub it off. In all fairness, I've yet to have a Creed smell good to me.

Like every Creed (I think I've just about tried them all) it starts off great, but the joy lasts about three minutes. After that, it settles into something rather cheap-smelling and unremarkable, though somewhat "pretty". These fragrances on the whole have limited appeal. They are all "obvious", linear and unremarkable. I think most of them smell just a few steps above something from Bath & Body works, honestly. Whenever I've tried a Creed, I always feel that I'm wearing something I may have smelled on ten other people at some point.

Exquisite white flower notes rendered in such a way so as to be light yet substantial, thoroughly modern yet composed with a classic touch.
In Love in White (LIW) the daffodils and magnolia are the clear highlights, are given a gentle sprightly introduction by the use of orange zest in the top notes. A combination of daffodils, magnolia, and rose can potentially lead to suffocation but here this floral heart is joined by a rice husk and orange zest to restrain the floral madness that so plagues fragrances from grandma's days (or even when compared to some of Creed's older fragrances for women). The unique twist in LIW is the rice husk note (a note not used that frequently in perfumery), which is rendered flawlessly and lends an intriguing boiling rice accord to the composition. If there is a better integrated rice note in perfumery, I would like to know about it.
Love in White is a well-behaved and well-composed bouquet of white floral notes infused with a transparent layer of orange zest which filters out the cloying heady vapors that so many florals emit. The longevity is excellent and the warm vanilla/sandalwood base introduces a hint of creaminess. LIW is an excellent demonstration in exhibiting the inherent rich characteristics of white flowers in the purest yet most restrained manner.
Only perfumistas who like to bath in heavy french perfumes from the likes of Lutens and Guerlain or worship at the altar of Luca Turin and think Creed has only one good fragrance (Angelique Encens...which surprise suprise smells like old french perfume ala Guerlain) will ignore this slick modern composition and leave senseless one or two line reviews.

Love in White starts off as a very fresh floral bouquet mingling orange zest, daffodils, magnolia, and jasmine in a well blended way. I also get the impression of the sea that Mr. Creed was aiming for. Now while it is pleasant I didn't see it as much of a standout from similar perfumes in the same genre. What really got me, and why I had to immediately write up this review, was the drydown. This mellows down into the most gorgeous and warm mixture of vanilla, ambergris, and Mysore sandalwood one could ever wish to encounter. I've rated it as a 3 since I like to play around with all my samples before making a final decision. However, with this drydown I can easily see it transitioning into a 4 or 5 in the near future.

wow, this is strange. it smells extremely artificial. kind of reminds me of a barbie doll... maybe a my little pony. it's not exactly BAD, but it's certainly plasticky and weird.

In the start, Love In White smells just like Elizabeth Arden's Ardenbeauty on me; light, fresh and somewhat sharp in all its freshness. When the perfume has calmed down a bit, I feel a pure flower bouquet (which isn't all that unlike to Vera Wang's beautiful wedding creation), but not with heady, sensual flowers as sultry jasmine and powerful rose, more a mix of hyacinth, gardenia and iris; those sharp, piercing flowers. The vanilla doesn't reach my nose at all, at least not in a noticeable way. I'm not really getting a big "personality" from this, and it doesn't leave a long-lasting impression.
There is a lot of spring freshness in LiW, so I'll reach for this in the gloomy dark of the winter nights to get a slice of the Spring cake with all its elated glory. Rain-fresh fields are beginning to swirl around in my thoughts; not the heavy, exhaust fume-bulging rain air that surrounds the city streets, this is like strolling on dew-covered meadows a bright morning dawning at four 'o clock, when the tiny birds are warbling their morning tunes cheerfully and the air feels fresh and crisp. I'm not too keen on the dry-down, after a couple of hours LiW leaves nothing but sharpness behind on my skin.
Staying power: 4/10, not too good.

Loved the bottle, absolutely loved the concept but unfortunately disliked the fragrance. This is the only Creed woman's fragrance that I actually disliked. I like most all of Creed's female fragrances and all of the unisex line.
The drydown scent is strange. It has the smell of soured milk which gradually changes over a few hours into something that is petrochemical based-- one of the reviewers here said that it smelled like a plastic doll, I agree that it has a "rubbery" smell which overpowers pretty much everything else. I could not for the life of me smell any florals through the petrochemicals. I am puzzled by all the reviewers who could smell jasmine and other floral notes-- amazing that perfume can smell so different on different people. On me, all I could smell was a combination of milk gone bad and plastic. Love in White is an extremely weird scent. I just don't get it. I wondered how Creed managed to concoct such as synthetic smell out of all natural ingredients-- did he use rubber sap from a Malaysian gum tree?
I recommend that you try the perfume on your skin rather than on one of those paper strips, it may work better on some people than others. Other reviewers have lauded this scent and Love in White may appeal to those with olfactory senses that able to distinguish more of the individual notes. I can't really recommend this scent though because the majority of people in the world don't have such a refined sense of smell. My personal feeling is that Love in White is "weird".

Love in White is one of my very favorite perfumes – who cares that Luca Turin trashed it in his recent perfume book! He also ridicules Creed's packaging overall which I find rather odd. I think this bottle in particular, with its opaque whiteness, etched feathers and silver bow, is quite stylish.
With Love in White, I initially notice a mélange of orange flowers, almond and musk. After about 20 minutes, notes of sandalwood, vanilla and white flowers begin to appear in a soft well-blended way. The sandalwood and vanilla notes make this into an especially calming and comforting fragrance. In conclusion, Love in White is a soft, elegant fragrance that smells expensive and classy, in an understated way.
Per Basenotes' website, here are the notes: Top: Orange zest from southern Spain; Middle: Young irridescent rice husk from Tonkin, Egyptian Iris, Italian White Jasmin, French Riviera Daffodils, Magnolia, Bulgarian Rose; Base: Vanilla, Ambergris, Mysore Sandalwood.

i enjoy most Creed Fragrances, this might be my favorite. Its very soft, magical, and plesant, an everyday wear for sure. However, i found this scent wearing off quickly. Come ready to spend some dollars, this is a pricy scent.

Does James4324 have a brother?? Love in White gets me lots of compliments. It's not my fave but it's unique and original. What surprises me is with all the high brow and high prices with Creed, you don't see alot of really high ratings for it on this site. High prices doesn't equate popularity.

I wanted to love this ... but, no. Not meant to be. Instant headache and dried down to a weird dairy-ish smell. I can see how it might work on some folks. Please get a tester before you this buy this, it could be an expensive mistake. Am I the only person who thinks all Creeds have this same weird plastic-y, chemical-y, musk-gone-wrong smell?
I guess I am just a dumb ole country gal who can't appeciate fine things!

I hated this when it was came out and remember thinking that it was one of the most vile perfumes out there. Then, a few years later as my knowledge and taste in perfumes evolved, I went back and tested it again. It still wasn't a scent that I immediately liked, but this time around I actually put it on and gave it a chance. I'm so glad I did. It's smells really fresh and airy. With a blast of citrus (but it's not a citrusy scent). I now own a full bottle of this. Interestly enough, all my compliments come when I wear this.

The fragrance stays constant the whole day. Very sophisticatedly uplifting.

My girlfriend used to wear this, but I don't let her anymore because it just really turns me off. I'm not sure why, but I just find this to be loud and obnoxious. Even 1 spray is too much. I love florals (like JM lime blossom and orange blossom mixed- yum!), but I do NOT think they should scream at you. They should have a subtle quality that whispers.
