Yummy!
Spice and wood. That sounds right in German.... wooden. What the Creed marketing department lacked in inventiveness when it came to finding a name, the perfumer was probably able to add to it in terms of perfectionism.

Spice and Wood is the cleanest, almost sterile wood I have ever come across. It almost seems to me like an alternative to all the orientalism, the heaviness, the spice bazaars, the eagle woods and the "dirty" campfires! Spice and Woods ingredients are first boiled, freeze-dried, additionally treated with odourless disinfectants and then processed as maximum pure and clean ingredients to this grandiose essence. Not only does it beguile with its extreme freshness, but it also brings this cool embrace that envelops you and gives you a feeling of security despite all the freshness. This astringency, masculinity, the birch and the hint of iris make this fragrance the beacon I perceive it to be.

Unfortunately, with all the cleaning, the shelf life is also affected to some extent, so that Spice and Wood, although acceptable in its shelf life, measured at the price of 4.20 EUR/ml, does not meet the legitimate expectation. But bottling every few months is a must for me, as S&W is my reference for woody fragrances.

Since a few weeks I am in possession of a Viking bottle. There is a certain similarity between these two exceptional fragrances for me. A lightweight S&W vibe is included in the Viking, but with more warmth and greatly improved durability. Both fragrances can coexist well in a collection without any doubling of fragrances.

Thanks for reading it
And if we don't read each other this year, I wish you a happy New Year! May 2020 be a great year for us all!

The King
Such a fragrance deserves a comment. I'm not sure what to write yet, but he deserves one!

The scent, a mixture of apple and wood, is made for kings. Not for warlords and soldier kings, but for the fine, gentle ruler who reigns his people carefully. In silk robes, in the royal palace, surrounded by much-traveled advisors who have brought the scented oils from the most distant countries and cities, the monarch wears this perfume.
All around, matching the scent, lots of fruit bowls with pyramids of green apples in them.
His sword, which he carries around his waist, is owed to the king's gentle manner, made of wood. Fine wood, fragrant, round blunted to not hurt anyone.

So and only so this fragrance can be worn.
See if I can think of a better commi within the next few days

Signature scent worthy
With warm woods, fresh spices and beautiful fruit accords this scent is orchestrated like a symphonic masterpiece. This is the true definition of a aristocratic fragrance. You get a wonderful clove note added to a divine Cedar /Birch wood base combined with a fresh apple and mandarin citrus accord. It’s uplifting and spirited while staying understated and elegant.

LIGHT FRENCH
I feel that this is very similar to Frenchlover in lighter version.
Frenchlover is more sophisticated and outstanding piece.For Spice and wood, I can not comment the same.

Spice, Wood, Lemon, Overpriced...
Spice and Wood opens with an alcoholic gin-like blast before quickly adding a slightly tart apple and natural lemon tandem. As the fragrance enters the early heart the apple is just detectable as the stronger lemon remains, now joining peppery angelica and deep slightly sweet clove in support of an emerging cedar and birch starring tandem. As the fragrance enters the late dry-down the lemon finally is replaced by relatively clean musk that now joins the still dominant remaining cedar from the base as the fragrance's linear development finally comes to a conclusion. Projection is average and longevity above average at 8-10 hours on skin.

There is plenty of fine smelling cedar to be had, and the clove spice adds some depth with the angelica imitating pepper quite well but the real pleasant surprise is the natural smelling supporting lemon that hangs around well into the heart accord. The lemon is the only thing that distinguishes the composition from being just another woody composition that has been done about as well a hundred times over. That said, the whole composition just screams "me too," just done with better materials than most others in the genre. The bottom line is Spice and Wood certainly delivers on the promised notes and does smell relatively good, but one can't help being more than a bit disappointed in its mundane results, earning a "good" rating of 3 stars out of 5 for the fragrance, but a strong avoid at its ridiculously lofty $225 per 30ml bottle price tag.
