Light and shadow
Opens with a delicate aroma of white flowers, quite innocent almost like a sneaking tiger. After this initial phase which lasts just w few minutes, we have two main accords, sweet warm notes of honey and overripen yellow fruits and dirty animalic notes of oud, fur. Those two accords play together very well, like darkness and light. Depending on the day and type of your skin one of them can dominate the whole composition. The blend and quality is superb here.

Don't let release year fool you, this is a timeless creation from Creed. A lot of people say this is how success smells like, it is hard not to agree as in my opinion, this scent is perfect for the office environment. It's open with vibrant citruses toned down by some floral notes, for the beginning you already know that it is unique. But for me, the dry down is the best, and it is not easy to describe it is between fresh, ozonic notes and woody base, but the balance is what makes it great. Because of that balance, it is a great all-rounder you can wear almost the whole year and perfect for any time of the day. If you would need to choose one scent for the office, GIT would be my recommendation.

High quality vanilla
Impressed by an iconic dessert made especially for Monsieur Christian Dior by Maxim's restaurant. That is about it from a marketing perspective. Somehow between gourmand and amber type of fragrance, open quite freshly with sweet citruses with a bit of spiciness. After an initial wow, vanilla kicks in with many warm, sweet notes. It is pretty gentle and effortless to wear, not too sweet and not too rough as well. The vanilla is of high quality here. The projection is moderate, which again sum up more of the gentle character on this one.

It's open with peppery notes, mint pepper. After a while, there are some herbal tea hints. However, they are very fragile on my skin. When you smell on a blotter, it is almost like good tea houses. Unfortunately, I don't feel pear and rose with was something I was looking for. The scent is not linear and start with vibrant peppery and transform to woody dry-down

Why so hyped?
Not sure why this is so hyped, yes it is nice, yet is well blended. But in my opinion, it is to gently and lacking some character. Don't get me wrong there is nothing bad about beings soft and gentle but not insipid.
