I am occasionally in the mood for violet, and I like Creed very much. I am looking for a Creed that would be full bottle worthy (I have a lot of manufacturers samples). Love in Black however is too gourmand sweet or candied and powdery for my taste. IMO, The cedar doesn't really cut the sweetness or lift the fragrance as cedar usually does. Love in Black also turns a bit dry and powdery on …Read more

Although I own several Creed fragrances Love in Black is my favorite! The soft sweet scent of violet is downright magical! The sweet powdery violet aroma makes me feel so gorgeous and ladylike. A light hand should be used when applying this beauty since the longevity is quite long (usually eight to twelve hours).

The official notes are: wildflowers, cedar, violets, iris, clove, tonkin musk, blackcurrant and Bulgarian rose. The top notes of Love in Black are soft and violet. Thereafter, a plumminess develops that doesn't really point to any of the official notes. Black currant is usually sharper than what I'm sniffing here. As it dries down, I get a tinge of what seems like guaiac. It actually …Read more

Creed's are the only scents I buy for myself - they're absolutely gorgeous. I'm so sad to see so many reviews complaining, but your own skin chemistry and scent DO strongly affect how fragrances work on you, so I highly recommend trying a sample first if you have any doubts. At present, I'm a lucky bunny in that a scent smells exactly the same on me as it does in the …Read more

I love this scent. It agrees with my chemistry. It is a very different fragrance and the NM sales person told me that it is not for everyone. They sell more Love in White there than anything else. But I do think this fragrance will grab a man's attention. My boyfriend (ex-boyfriend now) liked this one and Silver Water a lot.

WARNING: This fragrance is not going to work well on everyone, but the ones that do (like myself) it is a knock out. I get so many compliments when I wear love in black it is amazing, like no other fragrance I have worn. I have had other friends try it on and it has smell awful on them, so I highly suggest trying it on before u buy it. Next time your in the mall just stop by a creed counter and …Read more

This lingers on me with a prominent stale popcorn aroma that is very unpleasant.

I don't know why this got so many mixed reviews. From the instant I sprayed this and wore it, it was love at first scent. This is truly a unique scent. It's a complex floral with spices, like nothing I've smelled before. For me it lasts for hours and hours, and the scent alters into a deep, haunting violet. Tones of caramel and vanilla also loom at first spray, but again, this …Read more

I tend to be swept away by perfume bottle appearance, and this fragrance has a divine, edgy bottle, as well as a very appealing name. I always hope for some "black", dark feel in the scents I choose, and although I did not sense any "black" emanating from this fragrance, it was strange enough a scent to trigger my curiosity. Unfortunately it did not interact with my pH. It …Read more

O hello sexy.

Fellow violet lovers such as my self, this is a must! Personified, this fragrance would be a tale of tarnished innocence, a half consciousness. A sweet, innocent teenage girl wearing a white muslin dress smelling the flowers in a field of violets. Fast forward in time, a woman sits in a dirty bar, smoking and drinking her fifth manhattan. Her black lacy dress riding up …
