Refreshing floral-herbal interplay
Only rarely are there such minimalist scents as this vetiver geranium. And even more rarely does such a two-tone succeed. All too well I still have "Le Jardin du Monsieur Li" in my nose, where this did not want to work at all. It's very different here. A beautiful piece of fragrant harmony is created on the skin from rose geranium and vetiver. All other components are only extras and yet wonderfully arranged.

By the look of things, it should be Geranium Vetiver. Because the big performance at the beginning has first of all the geranium. The bouquet has a sourish fresh green note, which reminds me slightly of leaf green. Little by little, it becomes greener, harsher and spicier. In general I would say that the vetiver increases as the geranium retreats. Technically, one could say a kind of olfactory progression chart. The aroma changes in the course of flowery-fresh over flowery-spicy to herbaceous-green. With a rich, slightly creaky vetiver, the fragrance ends very relaxed. I find the value that one can perceive in every phase consistently beautiful. There was no scarcity here.

For an acqua, this Creed has an acceptable power. At the beginning I find him quite strong, but he loses quickly in the Sillage. After a few hours he is only very close. On clothes, I just about get over the office day. Nevertheless, I find it very successful. Strikingly inconspicuous, but in a very pleasant way.

Many thanks to Flanker for the generous filling, which made this extensive test possible.

Sunny day in a bottle
No vetiver here, when first applied you get such a beautiful burst of various notes. Floral, citrusy and they come at you at various levels at different times during the wearing.

On me it's straight up geranium throughout while there is a background of other notes, mostly floral/citrus.

I don't get the musk, cedar or amber and patchouli outright but I'm guessing they come together to form that great "wall of notes" behind the geranium.

It actually worked for seven hours on me and had good projection. Does not smell ordinary.

Playfully subtle.
Vetiver geranium. Very fresh, fruity, citrus and quite fun, right at the onset. It rapidly goes fairly light on the skin, but is already quite lovely. A little gentle on the vetiver, more like a soft patchouli with more a geranium leaf than the flower. Just as it was softening, A sudden, very pleasant fleeting jolt of very identifiable sharp green apple like a miniature electric shock. It then left again as soon as it came, like a fruity tease. Quite a playful scent for hot weather and office use.

This has a fresh fruity feel that isn't in the slightest bit sweet like fruit, but more like the salty sea. There is a crispy freshness of a tart apple yet it isn't tarty fruity. It is all the zingy parts of fruit without the sugar. The fresh white musk is soft and keeps these fruits from any acidity. The woodsy cedar masculine side floating in on a fresh breeze. The vetiver seems to be only light strands of grass holding onto the fruit like balloons, so their aroma is at a distance but still there.

Light and full of character. A playful, masculine office wardrobe staple for days when life is just too grey not to have a little fun but you don't want anyone to know. This fragrance almost chooses which facet to let go, and releases it in little single puffs of individual notes. Another jolt induces pure vetiver to show just for a nanosecond. Patchouli sits there calmly but like a well mulched leafy forest floor, with no harsh edges.

Rapidly fades to a fresh linen, fruity/ozonic sophisticated skin scent with movement induced scent surprises like a jack in the box of little playful breaths. Very wearable indeed but take a top up vial with you if you have a long day.

A drop of children’s apple shampoo in high-pitched, transparent vetiver composition a la TdH. The more I wear it, the less impressed I am.
