This green, earthy vetiver is electrified by wood and ambroxan. A refreshing alternative to sport scents everywhere, this bone dry, almost smoky yet still clean eau de toilette is a sleeper from the designer market. The bottle resembles that of an ink well, and is tasteful and subtle enough to grace your counter. Although it was a commercial flop, it has its cult following among perfume lovers, especially value minded ones. This one is a close relative of the glorious Sycomore by Chanel. Highly recommended.
It's getting towards the end of summer and I've found myself wearing my lighter perfumes (citrus, colognes, florals) in heavy rotation. If you like neroli and verbena, this is a hit. More focused on citrus and made slightly astringent with verbena in the heart, the neroli shares the spotlight here. Always pleasant is that typical ambergris dry-down that Creed is loved for.
