Love at the 2nd glance
I used the souk here more and more because I see blind purchases from 30 Euro upwards so slowly as senseless. You can't buy a Creed fragrance that you can't get for less than 100 Euro blind unless you don't care about 120-200 Euro. So I received the Royal Water with several bottlings (Souk is really top, those I had to deal with were all absolutely correct, friendly and reliable). First I always read the comments here and get a picture of a scent based on the statements/comments. I often wonder when description and reality don't fit together for me. This was also the case with the Royal Water. Sprayed on the hand - smelled - and thought: Um necessary! That's Creed Number One I don't like. Petty, citric, a little old-fashioned. Not that I have to wash it off, but not as well as I expected. I put him on his side, then. After another test he got better. Most people will know that you just want a fragrance to please you because it's so well rated or in Youtube videos everyone says it's great (e.g. De Marly Layton, De Marly Herod) and you think "What's wrong with me that I don't like it?" These scents are then given several chances while others (Boss, CK, Davidoff etc) are quickly dealt with. With Creed, it's extreme for me. I often thought "Joa's ok but I'll never buy that for the price!" when I first tested it (so happens at Aventus, Viking, Royal Mayfair, SMW, MI, Himalaya, Bois du Portugal) and now I own them because they are all unique (uniquely good) to me at the 2nd glance. Unfortunately I notice that the more Creed, De Marly or other niche fragrances I test, the more of my former favorite fragrances (e.g. Dior Higher, Chanel Egoiste Platinum...) become more and more irrelevant. Not really worse, but less interesting. You get more and more into this obsession and then wonder why someone tells you that you stink when you wear Amouage Reflection while you often get compliments for JPG pour Homme. You don't want that to be true. The Royal Water - to get to the fragrance itself - is not citric/classical like Allure Edition Blanche but rather towards Dior eau Sauvage edt. Think you'll get less good reactions here wearing it. It's more of a classic fragrance for the fragrance freaks like me who are losing sight of the mainstream in the sense of "please everyone" more and more. With that in mind.

Royal Water is an enchanted bright light in the forest after a spring morning rain.
Green grass by the river & tiny flowers. Royal Class!
