Another Creed fragrance that is extremely complex. I read some reviews that said it is unisex, but I feel it is too flowery on me. It seems to inspire either a love or a hate reaction from other reviewers. It works wonderfully with my wife's body chemistry (half Italian, olive skinned, chestnut hair, green eyes), so I wonder if that explains the mixed reviews. I think it's better in the cooler months, might be too strong for summer.
The only thing holding me back from rating this higher is that I am not a fan of Lavender scented products. Most have a very synthetic astringency to them that is so different from natural Lavender, so I have been prejudiced against them. However, this one is very different...very real. I have been using Creed for years and a friend suggested I try the RSL and I have to say that it is unrivalled as a lavender fragrance. Comes with a wonderful aromatherapy benefit (helps keep your spirits up!)
I am a Creed fan, and this is my second favorite. Sometimes my wife will be in the shower when I spray it on while I am standing at the sink nearby and I just have to wait a few seconds before she says, "Wow, that smells good." It's complex, so it changes but has that unmistakable Creed quality and depth.
Of all the Creed fragrances I own, this is my favorite, not to be confused with the Millesime version. Powerful. Smoky. Old money, and lots of it.
I am a bit of a Creed fan, and have been using Aubepine Acacia for years. A lot of reviewers say they love it for summer, so don't be put off by it's initial "bang", it mellows very nicely. Complex, with good staying power.
I have used this scent over many years. Doesn't really start out with a "bang", but it does dry down to a complex subtlety. MI stays, and I have found it is good on both men and women.
