Viking - the Rose King
I have to say, 2 years after the release of the fragrance, there are rare, really rare times someone who smells like Viking and these people came to 99% from the perfumery struts, mostly unsuspecting, who do not know what treasure they carry with them. To that I have to say that it is not an easy start, you don't come right away, with the Vikings, on a common denominator, no love at first sight (smell), but what can you think of romance, this was lied to, by our nice film industry!
To be honest, it took me some time to get warm with this fragrance, but I also noticed that there's a certain power that attracts, because every time in a perfumery, I ran more and more to the Creed shelf and sprayed it on. Always with my partner, always tested together, and she didn't find this fragrance appealing to express it "nicely".
But forget to give time. One should give the Viking time, he should develop and unfold, show his peppery, minty and rosy heart, red like the rose itself, by the way this is the favourite fragrance of my better half, rose. Rose didn't appeal to me personally, only I liked her, and of course she herself liked it, and that can be a decisive point that we liked the scent better for some time after spraying on. At first of course not stunning, because it was no ordinary rose scent, it is also not a feminine rose, it is sensual and masculine. Now I have tested Lyrik Man several times, and must say in comparison that the Viking, for me personally, is more male and more suitable for everyday use and to which better the opposite arrives.
His brother and cousins are everywhere! On a day when I spray Vikings on (which I bought in the meantime) I feel special because I know nobody in my city smells like me, and if he does, then probably at the other end of town, so I have my peace. And on an Aventus day you can smell like every other day, and then you can't even enjoy this respectable scent, because your opposite wears a dupe and smells like you in the Sillage, but you spent a few hundred € and he 20-50€. The unsuspecting one is the winner in this case...
Back to the Viking... his recognition value is high and we have learned to love him, therefore he is an enrichment for my collection! The course of the fragrance is well described in other comments, that's why that was it from my side, and wish you a lot of fun while testing and wearing ...
