Chèvrefeuille Original

by Creed

Clean, fresh, yes there is honeysuckle that is tempered by mint and although being floral as well as fresh it is not sweet at all. The opening is one of the nicest honeysuckle notes in any fragrance that I have come across. 


The drydown adds the leaves of the honeysuckle, with other herbal undertones and a touch of a grassy side to it too.


The base is centred around the Creed-specific ambergris, which the house has been famous for.  


The sillage is moderate and the projection good.  After the initial hour it moves closer to the skin, but overall longevity is acceptable lasting about four hours on my skin. Recommended.


A formal but fresh scent that is conservative but open and relaxed too  Apart from the impressive and rather natural honeysuckle it is a bit simple, and the base is a tad on the predictable side, but it is crafted beautifully from top-class ingredients. 3.75/5
