Fresh Lemony Lemonade
This is a people pleaser. Not offensive at all, but not going to stand out in the crowd. Sits closer to the skin and doesn't last very long. Truthfully, if you can find this on sale, it's a great one for when you know you're going to be outside and doing some sort of sport or leisure activity. Doesn't project, it's simple, linear, skin scent, but I know that if I hug someone, it'll smell pleasant.

Bought and… returned
Let me start by saying that I bought it, and ended up returning it. What happened? I first saw it and tried it, and in fact what got my attention the most, was the really good looking bottle. I tried it, and enjoyed it, a nice fresh scent, ZERO sweet, smells literally like a lemon gin. Gives you a frozen feel, mildly metallic from the ambroxan (or another of its forms). It’s actually quite pleasant for my nose. For the nose of others… not so much. It has a decent projection, although more of a skin scent, and normal longevity, around 6 hours (but spray it on clothes and it will last longer). Every time I asked someone if they liked it, it was “ok” at best… it reminds me a lot of the other Y, which I never loved, because of the sage note, but a much more frozen feel. The smell is very undistinguished, it could be anything really. In short, it wasn’t a fragrance that made me enthusiast about it, nor any of the people around me. In certain ways, it smells like an Invictus Aqua 2016, but not as good, in the way that it’s super synthetic… enjoyable, but the best thing about it, it’s the bottle. Returned it

The Best Salty Scent after Invictus Aqua 2016
This is definitely one of my favourite Salty, oceanic, aquatic and ozonic scents. Having Invictus Aqua 2016, and Millesime Imperial, both salty and my favourite scents, I also had to own this one. It doesn’t disappoint, smells like a rich guy after a day going around on his yacht.
Blue, the same from start to finish, it’s not very “interesting” but yes an everyday summer fragrance, which will be better than 80% of other options.

The Best Fragrance EVER
This is a legendary fragrance. In the words of our friend Jeremy: If you find one below 100€ just blind buy it.
The aquatic nature of this invictus, much more intense than the 2018 version (which was sweet). The 2016 is basically not sweet at all. It’s salty, tart, so so fresh, smells unlike any other perfume I ever owned. There’s no Freeze version, no Aqua this or that, which can even come close to this masterpiece.
Deserves my 9.5/10 overall evaluation.

Could be great, but lacks
This is an obvious clone of Silver Mountain Water, as we all know. The scent is there, and lasts for a really long time. However, you can feel that the quality is missing and although in the air you won’t notice if it’s the OG or Sillage, when you spray it, the smell is so metallic and sharp, it can make your head go the other way, in my opinion. I love Silver Mountain Water, I have a 2014 batch. I enjoy it, almost as much as Millesime Imperial. And I must say that I didn’t fall in love with Sillage as I imagined I would. This is too aggressive, unlike SMW. It will last longer and it’s similar in the air, but if you compare it side by side, it’s quite different, less interesting.
Please don’t get the idea that it is bad, it’s not bad by any means, however, I still prefer the real thing. If you don’t have money, or you’re just starting your fragrance journey, curious about creed, you can buy this one for a pretty close idea. However, I would save and buy the real thing!
