Good Neroli.
Surprisingly good, for the price it has, around € 12.
Do you like azahar?. This is a must test.

Skip the citrus part of NP, or at least, it shows less and goes straight to the neroli.

Very nice, well done and with a decent performance.

I have for sale "Neroli Portofino" and Frederic Malle's masterpiece "Cologne Indlebile". .
Are you sure nobody wants them?
Come on guys ....

A bad joke.
My review is about a 100ml bottle, batch S9618B01

Honestly, I am somewhat perplexed ... I think we are facing one of the biggest teasing of modern perfumery.
Once again, the "fanboy" effect reaches unrepeatable limits.

Totally bland, ethereal fragrance, without body or charisma.

It is a classic, citrus / herbal scent that is clearly reminiscent of Silver Mountain Water, with that synthetic white musk background that the brand likes so much and the truth is that it does not have much more to tell. All that if the pink pepper, mint and I do not know what, is pure literature, but cheap. Eye, I do not say that they do not smell, in the drying if a clear note of pink pepper is appreciated, but come on, nothing special or striking.

Below other fragrances of the brand, such as Aventus or Silver Mountain Water or Virgin Island Water, to name a few, which are not holy of my devotion, but that seem better than this Viking.

The Creed hype is really amazing. I am surprised to read in the community of perfumery fans, how fragrances are defenestrated with 30 times more quality (and presence) than this, to then extol launches of this brand, but I have the feeling that any "thing" that Launch these gentlemen, it will be a reason for worship in any way, as long as it bears the "CREED" label.

I have come to see bottles of this Viking at € 500 and although for a few months, curiously they have already cut the price in half, it really seems like a real tease. Anyway, in these price reange, perfume quality feels very low, and I think that this is the big problem in Viking. All smells cheap.

The performance is simply unfortunate, with a totally ridiculous sillage and longevity, well .. well, like any everyday perfume.

On the other hand, I find it difficult for anyone to say that it smells bad, or that it is not pleasant, but I think that in this price range, this is totally insufficient.

To say that I see it indicated for daily and office / formal use.

Really, I have used perfumes of $ 20 or less, with more soul and substance than this Creed and for this, I think we will be better off with many current designer perfumes.

In short, insulting, without body or soul. A ghost of these times of perfumes that do not smell, great marketing campaigns, in the case of Creed, many times based on lies, and trendsetters that tell us what we should buy and what not.

Cheap and unrefined clon of Aventus.
Well, a new clone / plagiarism of Aventus, of those who do not try to hide and smelled a million times.

Open with very sharp citrus, yes, for my nose, closer to lemon than pineapple. This prevails throughout the life of the fragrance, only in drying, it also tries to copy that "smoked" thing from Aventus, even with worse results than in Creed.

The perfume remains flat, with a virtually non-existent evolution and at times, especially in the initial phase, it has even turned out to be unpleasant. Remove currants, apple or birch from this, then cloth ...

It smelled very artificial to me, tremendously synthetic, I don't know how to say it ... I'm not a fan of Aventus, but it smells much finer, less coarse than this. Of course, I am not saying that it is worth paying the difference for the Creed, much less, that is already a matter of each.

The differences with L'Aventure de Al Haramian, or Afnan Supremacy Silver, have seemed practically non-existent, perhaps this Armaf marks more that smoky scroll, so perhaps I stay with L'Aventure and anyway, of all these copies, The one that smells best to me is Insurrection Pure II by Reyane Tradition or even the copy of Refan. Eye, shading a lot and spinning fine, since the differences are small.

That if, in terms of performance, I think this Armaf is the one that best meets, maybe even surpassing Creed, both in wake and in longevity, but honestly, I found it very gross, squeaky, with unpleasant moments and in short and I tell you honestly, it seemed like a complete disaster.

Another "cheap" copy of Aventus.
From what appears on the fragrance sheet or the Loewe website, to what it smells like in reality, there is an abyss. No lavender, no moss, no sandalwood, or vetiver. Perhaps there is something of the latter two over there at the bottom, putting a dash of ingenuity .. Yes, it may have a dash of incense, also on this base, but very diluted and insignificant.

We are facing another "gross" clone of "Aventus", of which both proliferate today. It opens with the typical explosion of synthetic Bergamot, nuanced to subtract some acidity with some strange ambroxan-like molecule and some wood / vetiver in the background, as a base.

Compared to the "current Aventus", well, but it totally lacks the nuances of rose, green apple or vanilla that could be found in jars of years ago.

I see it far below, both in quality and in distinction, or creativity, of releases such as "Loewe 7" or its "Anonymous" flanker. With much less elaboration and nuances than these, apart from that we are talking about a copy of other perfumes that have been in the market for some time.

As for the performance, here I think it is going well. It is powerful, especially at the start. Gaudy. I think that much more than the "Aventus" itself and even the unbearable (for my taste) "Club de Nuit Intense", which is the one that has reminded me the most, for that squeaky look. In the cardboard, although it has lost strength, I still smell it 24 hours later.

With no intention of offending, this type of perfume reminds me a little of the typical "redneck" with money (or that it pretends to appear), which seeks to attract attention and be recognized by everyone and arrives with its car full of spoilers tacky, making a ridiculous noise with the engine, while destroying the gearshift absurdly, with the purpose of attracting more attention. Obviously, I do not say that everyone who dazzles this perfume has to be like that, much less. It is a mere personal association.

The more than € 100 that they ask for the 100ml bottle, they have simply stunned me ...

What they call luxury in this new era.
Well, nothing. More of the same, of the same, of the same ...

Difficult to differentiate from his sisters, very similar in everything.
Opens with citrus, to dry in the same woody roll as usual, with insignificant nuances, with that wood something more noticeable in this version. That deodorant Axe remains, perhaps less marked in this Parfum than in his two sisters.

Above all at its base, it feels quite synthetic and cheap.

It doesn't smell bad, of course. It is pleasant, although somewhat tasteless. Without charisma or distinction and suitable for office use, etc. .. and eye, perhaps it is the one that best smells of the three and I would dare to say that of all its competition ..

As I say, very poor performance. Stop projecting after 5-10 minutes, staying very close to the skin. It lasts around 2-3 hours on skin, maybe more if you stick a lot and "look for it" and about 5-6 on clothes.

Of "Parfum" it has very little and of the 3, it is the one that worse works and it gives me that it is the aspect where Chanel is hiding all the rot of his launches, or seen in another way, what is ballasting them.

Laughter price A true eschatological joke.
