One Limited Edition Bottle Released Is One Too Many...
1849 has no top notes to speak of, instead immediately moving to its heart accord of super potent powdery makeup-like ylang-ylang with jasmine support over an underlying green grassy accord that disappears after the first half hour or so. As the fragrance enters the late dry-down the powdery ylang-ylang slowly gives way to powdery vanilla and light musk from the base. Projection is average and longevity excellent at 10-12+ hours on skin.

1849 was not a fragrance I was interested in from the get-go, but as many have lauded it with "Best of 2013" accolades I thought it only fair to at least give it a whirl despite my initial indifference. Now having worn it on skin several times I clearly needn't have bothered. The suffocating powdery makeup-like floral ylang-ylang heart accord is very badly implemented and would normally be a show-stopper. Adding to the disappointing heart accord is the near equally disappointing late dry-down featuring more powder, now derived from cheap smelling vanilla in the base. The whole thing is just a big mess, and one that has me shaking my head at the comparisons by some to Creed's Royal Oud. Apart from the ridiculous pricing on both there are few similarities, with Royal Oud smelling miles better. The bottom line is the 225 Pounds per 75ml bottle limited edition 1849 fails on nearly every level save its unfortunately excellent performance, earning a "poor" rating of 2 stars out of 5 and a *big* avoid recommendation. Creed can't make a limited edition small enough for *this* one.
