Creed Chevrefeuille, which translates to honeysuckle, is a discontinued grey-cap-era release that I regard as one of the best freshies of the house, very apropos in the dead heat of summer but comparably nice on a day like today (where I am) that starts off cool and ends up mildly warm.

Chevrefeuille is a freshie but is also dense and interesting enough to merit more attention than most of what's out on the market, even if it's comparable to many of the previous and current Creed freshies in terms of overall quality. I liken it far more to the other discontinueds that I love (Epicea, Baie de Genievre, etc.) than, say, Silver Mountain Water, Himalaya, or even Green Irish Tweed. There's something about Chevrefeuille

The note breakdown consists of honeysuckle, “herbaceous notes,” and the familiar Creed base of ambergris. It's primarily floral and citrus, the sharp scent of honeysuckle predictably dominating the scent profile, but there's a vague herbal quality to it as well, which, even though I think the herbaceous note description is a bit odd, is fairly spot-on. It's fresh, floral, citrus, and herbal, though the ambergris base doesn't shine through as much as in the more watery compositions by the house.

Overall this is a great fragrance and one I recommend checking out if you're ever able to. I see if for sale from time to time on Facebook and elsewhere and usually it doesn't drive as much of a price as some of the other discontinueds, but it merits comparable attention, in my opinion.

Wow! A mega-fresh acre of greenness that hits you with a splash of honeysuckle freshness and spotlights Creed's masterful craft of making unforgettably well-made scents.

Sweet, natural, with a suprising hint of Creed's hallmark ambergris accord with its waxy, sweet musky touch. If you are one of the few who have had a chance to try out Creed's Chèvrefeuille Original, you'll agree with how this herbaceous-floral wonder can really shine and make you feel shower-clean in the end!

Chèvrefeuille Original is a watery green fragrance. I envision honeysuckle vines covered in a very heavy dew on a pleasant early summer morning. It's also very lightly floral and starts out slightly spicy as well. As it progresses, the floral note dissipates for me and the spiciness increases. While it's still very much a green scent, it becomes rather soapy. If the beautiful, light florals stuck around and if the soapiness was minimized, I could see Chèvrefeuille Original alongside modern Creeds. But slightly spicy green soap probably wouldn't sell well when compared to what's available from the house today. Having said that, I still find it a very pleasant scent. Surprisingly, I can still smell it more than ten hours after applying it to my chest. The projection is not heavy, but it does persistently project. So count me impressed. When I want a light, but long-lasting fresh, clean fragrance, this is a good one to reach for.

Cheverefeuille is a very simple green floral fragrance with only handful of notes listed for the fragrance. It opens up with the honeysuckle leaves which come off as green, floral, and refreshing. The leaves give off a slight minty vibe that blends with the existing florals really well. The opening specifically the mint, will disappear leaving just the florals from the honeysuckle accord. At the heart, the herbaceous notes make its presence taking center stage while the florals from the honeysuckle will recede into the background. At this point, the scent becomes rather herbal with just a hint of florals. At the base, a subtle amount of ambergris completes the scent while still maintaining much of the herbaceous notes from earlier. Longevity and silage can be considered average with approximately 3-4 hours of longevity with moderate silage for the first hour before staying closer to the skin. I would say the best time to wear this would be in the spring, summer would be okay as well. I see this as a casual daytime scent. I personally don't see myself wearing it outside of those occasions as there's nothing really too special about it. Overall, Cheverfeuille is a decent scent and worth trying if one is into green/ floral scents or classic Creed fragrances.

The longevity is above average. It starts off as mowed grass and then settles with sweet powdery honeysuckle leaves (not the nectar) to a clean smell. If you want to smell clean after a nice shower then this cologne is it. Perfect in warm weather.

Genre: Green Floral

Chèvrefeuille Original goes on with very brisk, sharp green notes that trumpet a wake-up call to the nose. Sweeter green grassy notes follow in a few minutes, causing the composition to mellow appreciably. Behind these come the floral notes, all bright and spring-fresh. I smell lily-of-the-valley (muguet) along with the honeysuckle, and jus the slightest hint of anise, licorice, or fennel seed.

The floral accord sweetens considerably over time, but never loses its bright freshness or becomes heady. I attribute some of this effect to a very subtle and well blended minty-camphoraceous note. Chèvrefeuille Original continues in a linear manner for three or four hours before fading quietly into the background. It never morphs onto the standard modern Creed formula that underpins Green Irish Tweed, Silver Mountain Water, Millésime Imperial, or Himalaya, and that's all for the better.

I give Chèvrefeuille Original credit: it really is original and distinctive in the context of the modern Creed offerings. I can recommend it without reservation as a unisex scent for spring and summer.
