BatchFascists and already smelled a thousand times and not worth his price
I play today times picture newspaper, therefore this headline and these are the words I particularly like when they occur in a statement: "This batch blablabla" and "smelled like this a thousand times" and "is not worth its price".

When I came here to swap one of my first scents, I was asked which batch it was. Hmm, now where do I call without outing myself as an absolute douche? So back to reading and reading. All right, by the batch I can see what year the scent is from and some are better than others, the code is on the bottle and often on the bottom of the bottle. Often the older batches are probably better............but that would lead too far now and is not always true. If I already read batch, then I usually do not read further. Because if I like a fragrance, it's the one I'm testing or the one I have myself. If someone asks about the batch, I can understand that. This is then something like shop talk among lovers of these fragrances, you do with wines so.

Already a thousand times smelled should mean: nothing new, not creative, maybe boring, not interesting enough...............whatever. This is about as if I would tell that I was already today on the toilet. It's like that and everybody does it, but only a few people are interested. Truffles I have also smelled a thousand times, but finds again and again horny.

Is not worth its price, should probably mean much too expensive. Whether a fragrance is worth its price, the buyer decides. I can write: I find him overpriced or I can and / or I do not want to pay. That fits. But who am I to say that a fragrance is not worth its price? That degrades the people who love this fragrance, they have been overcharged. Are prices for some fragrances inflated? Yes, for sure! Can I write that too? Yes, I can! But to stand up and say the fragrance isn't worth its price, I think is silly.

How do I now get a reasonably good transition to the fragrance. Only fascists marry in white and love that, even if it's expensive?.........Nope, that doesn't fit at all.
Thought Love in white is certainly a fragrance for brides, I think. It's light, a bit like the bride's flower bouquet and also a bit like freshly showered bride. And it's as light as the bride's veil. Fresh is what you should smell at your wedding, I mean. It's fluffy, sweet and unexciting. For me it's too light, I prefer it with more kick.

Which batch did I have? No idea! - was ne manufacturer sample.
Already smelled a thousand times? No, but I could name similar scents now!
Is it worth its price? No idea, would not like to buy it! - think but already that he is high-priced.

If you're too dumb to find the right fragrance name...!
Today I'm testing a Creed fragrance again. And don't worry, this time I'm not joking about the Aventus disciples, whose scent is sacred to them above all, especially with the right batch code, which was already responsible for some declarations of war! Okay, at least I'm gonna try not to joke :DD

The fragrance I'm testing today is... yeah,... and off I go... stupid as I am, I'm looking here in the perfumo database all the time for the fragrance name that just doesn't seem to show up. I search Google for the fragrance name, but suddenly all sorts of Creed fragrances appear... and you know why?

I have here an original sample of Creed in my hands, the sprayers that are stuck in these big cards. I open the thing and read the "fragrance name": Echantillon Eau de Parfum. Yes... the way it stands together, I actually think all the time that the fragrance is called Echantillon and I hold the EDP of it in my hands. I mean, how am I supposed to know that now again, that Echantillon really means nothing more than "test" in French?!
Only then do I discover the real name of the fragrance: Love in White. Ooh, well.

Well, I'm kind of stupid sometimes, aren't I?.... "Nooo, you're not stupid, we all love you and we're all so stupid!" :DD

*sigh* Of course nobody says that here, so I immediately times somewhat offended the smell..... argh!

The Scent:
The fragrance starts with a light, but also somewhat watered down scented orange or orange peel, because it also smells a little bitter. At almost the same time you can smell floral notes, especially general white flowers.
Even if the beginning is fresh and citric, it quickly becomes more flowery-sweet. Somehow the fragrance also has something synthetic about it, which I normally don't know about Creed fragrances.
Then the floral notes become a little weaker, so that you can smell the diluted orange peel again. A slight amber note can be heard, and something tart and herbaceous is also added, where I suspect that this should have come from the daffodil, but at least for me the daffodil smells rather weak and not as clearly identifiable as in Hermès Eau de Narcisse Bleu, for example.
Then, a little later, the orange gets weaker, even if you can still smell a certain bitter note for a short while. However, the fragrance then remains mostly floral.
In the later base you can still smell flowers, but for me the scent doesn't smell nice at all and is also quite stuffy. In the background I perceive a strangely slightly pungent and not at all great smelling smell. Maybe this is the iris-vanilla combination, but an iris and or the vanilla usually smells VERY VERY beautiful to me with almost all scents! Strange...
Oh and sweet the smell is also not really despite indicated amber and vanilla. No, I didn't like the scent.

Sillage and durability:
The sillage is above average, diminishes a little afterwards and is therefore, in my opinion, best to smell only from close up with others.
But the shelf life is okay, the fragrance lasts about eight hours like most fragrances.

The flacon:
The beautiful bottle is high quality and pretty as always. It has a matt white, shield-shaped shape with the Creed logo on the front, which has been worked into the bottle glass in the form of a recess. Below you can see the famous Creed lettering. The lid, which is also white, is square, but is pressed in spherically from top to bottom on each side and thus looks like part of a vault. There's a silver bow on the neck. It's a nice bottle, but there are more beautiful ones from Creed.

Hm... so I have to say that this is one of the most insignificant Creed fragrances I have ever sniffed out. He really smells like nothing really. I mean, there's some oranges that don't seem to know if they're supposed to turn up the heat or not. The floral notes can't really decide if they should go in a certain direction either and smell just like that. Sure, they are white flowers, but the fragrance is just so boring for me that it's almost sacrilege that the bottle says "Creed" on it. You can find such a fragrance for a fraction of the money, what this fragrance costs here, and even then most would certainly not buy it, because even among the cheap fragrances there are much better and more beautiful fragrances. Fragrances a thousand times better. Because for me the biggest point of criticism is not that the scent simply smells boring, but quite fast also simply does not become pleasantly smelling with its dry, stuffy scents, where besides the (here not beautiful) iris or vanilla smells even somewhat stinging.

Otherwise the fragrance, as it smells, would be suitable for spring and summer (but not on very hot days, as it would then have to be extremely overwhelming) as a simple day fragrance, but I really can't recommend it. That also means, it is not worth testing the fragrance, at least not on your arm, that would really be a pure waste of valuable spray surfaces, if you are in the city in a perfumery!

Echantillon... yes, yes, I am a linguistic genius, aren't I? :D
That's exactly how a friend once said, "I got a scent!" I replied, of course: "Really? Cool! Which smell then??", and then she had to laugh, since it had meant that she had just caught a cold! Arghrgh! :DD

I like it, so there
In case you were wondering, the title of this review is directed at Luca Turin's famous scathing review of Love in White contained in The Guide wherein he states that he'd rather have lice than wear this frag. Although I laughed, that review got me curious as to what could provoke that kind of scorn. Initially I chalked it up to a hatred of all things Creed, but after browsing his reviews of the rest of the line I noticed that Turin does praise some Creed perfumes, albeit rather grudgingly. I eventually decided that Luca dislikes what he calls "overexposed florals," which would include Love in White and Amouage Reflection Woman, for example. Apparently, he doesn't care for the kind of sharp floral bouquet you sometimes get with magnolia, freesia and narcisscus, and he's certainly entitled to that opinion.

For me, it's impossible not to like Love in White. The first note out of the bottle is orange zest, the smell of which I love so much that I find excuses to put it into all kinds of things when I'm cooking. Granted, this frag would be more balanced if something else was present to equalize the tartness of the citrus in the top notes, but I'm really not complaining. The florals in the heart of this frag are certainly bright and sparkling, and not something that I'd want to wear when all dressed in black and in one of my brooding moods. However, even the moodiest of us have days when we're feeling outdoorsy, optimistic or pleased with life in general and Love in White would be suitable for enhancing that sort of vibe. I can detect the Tonkin rice note that is mentioned in the Creed pr, but it really doesn't add anything in my opinion. The base notes are actually the best part of the composition, and turn this fairly wholesome, well-scrubbed frag into something more sensual and earthy. All in all, Love in White failed to live up to its bad reputation. Give it a try if you like a sharp floral with some citrus.

Adult(s) become(become)
I got to know the scent when it wasn't long on the market.
The saleswoman raved about it and called it a masterpiece of perfume art. She sprayed it on me. I didn't think it was bad, but it wasn't good enough for the price (and at that time I was just starting to take an interest in niche fragrances, so Creed was still unknown to me). He smelled indefinable to me, nice, but that's all he smelled.
Since my visit to the perfumery was during the lunch break, I went back to work afterwards.
My colleague found him penetrating.
I got a bad headache after 1 hour, I suspected the smell and washed it off, but it stuck like glue.
Creed was through with that for me: Association penetrance, headache and much too strong. Manifest in my head.
So whenever in the future a saleswoman wanted to show me a Creed fragrance, I waved it off. No, thanks
Today I know I was actually still too young and immature for this perfume.
Although it was conceived for the wedding and a certain degree of maturity is required of women who choose a bond for life, I believe that this fragrance is not perceived as it is under 40.
I was in my mid-30s and even though I had been married for a long time, had children and felt very grown up, it wasn't me. Still unfinished and no maturity for Love in White.
When do you grow up? We learn anew every day.

Yesterday I ran into the scent again. I was in the little niche perfumery and the salesgirl was wearing it. Without knowing what it was, I told her she would smell wonderful and asked what it was.
She said creed love in white and I didn't want to believe it. And it was right back to my defense. My brain reported: Attention, headaches...penetrating...
But my belly reported: wonderful, tender-blooded, innocent, airy, powdery, very fine with a hint of freshly grated orange peel. Very natural and absolutely accurate. I didn't even feel it chemically or artificially.
I dared to be sprayed with this scent and went out into the cold.
It got better and better, so delicate the flowers, so lively the orange and so cuddly the milky base for me. So balanced and unlike any scent I've ever tasted.
I remembered almost 15 years ago. To the words of the saleswoman, who was about the middle of her 50s: "A masterpiece"
Yes, now I smelled this masterpiece too. And I realized how much time has passed since then. And what's changed.
In my present life, hardly anything is the same as it was then.
Strokes of fate, changes.
But I have become more mature and adult, more adult also for Creed love in white.
Arriving at home, he had developed to a dreamlike beauty and close to his body, but still very present with a light, completely sufficient sillage.
Like when you sprinkle the flowers on the bride and groom...

I went back to town and bought him.
I couldn't help it, despite the price, which was halfway bearable at 30 percent.

And I've been enjoying it all day. I guess I grew up more than I did then.
I guess we never will...

Interesting in that Prosaic Seems the Goal
I had to try Love in White at some point. Given the Turin reviews in The Guide, I couldn’t resist. The review gives LiW the George Bush style benefit of low expectations. I was half expecting the devil in a bottle. Balance the low expectations from The Guide with the stratospheric expectations set by the Creed press mythology (yacht, 5 year world search, exotic ingredients…) and LiW could only wind up a head-scratcher. Turns out it’s a bit of a tempest in a teapot actually.

Floral blend, sweet synthetic woods. Loud, but otherwise not particularly remarkable for either its heights or its horrors. There’s something about a sweet yet acrid linear floral, though, that suggests personal product scenting. Shampoo or conditioner or the like. LiW seems designed along the lines of a hygienic or grooming product.

LiW wins by driving down the middle of the road and avoiding both high and low expectations.
