Excellent fragrance.Nice bottle and cap. The metallic note in Derby Blanche does not overpower...It's Fresh and much lighter than I had expected. Sure to be a favorite in my collection. FYI I have never tried SMW by Creed so I cannot compare.
Highly recommended for quality and affordability.
Surprisingly good! It definitely mimics Silver Mountain Water. Is it the same? No, one costs $20 and the other costs significantly more. The quality isn't on the same level, but, for the price, Derby Clubhouse Blanche is well worth the cost of admission, especially if you want the feel of SMW but don't want to waste it on random days out just running errands and such. I haven't tried Al Wisam Day yet, but Clubhouse Blanche is remarkably close in feel to SMW while being cheap, not reeking of synthetics, and providing good quality for the price.
This reminded me of Silver Mountain Water for a few seconds after spraying it, but then that similarity started to fade to my nose.
This is what I expected Al-Rehab's Silver to smell like, which was actually much better than I expected. Silver Mountain Water has become one of my favorite fragrances, so I've been wanting to check out fragrances that are similar. I have found some gems that way like Rasasi Al-Wisam Day and Entebaa. Al-Wisam Day could be considered an alternative to SMW, Entebaa is not.
Anyway, Armaf Derby Club House Blanche is missing the magic of Silver Mountain Water. The most volatile top notes are similar. It doesn't have the inky note, which is something I love. Derby Club House Blanche also leans more masculine. I really like the unisex quality of SMW, so if I were looking for a SMW replacement (I'm not) I would miss that in this fragrance. It is different though, which is nice on it's own. As it starts to dry down (around the 30 minute mark) this stuff gets better smelling. I still find it the least similar of the SMW alternatives I have smelled.
I may still wear this, but I won't be buying a second bottle of this stuff. If you're looking for a Silver Mountain Water alternative, you will be much more satisfied with Al-Wisam Day.
Here's how I'd rate the alternatives or "clones" that I have tried from best to worst:
1. Silver Mountain Water
2. Al-Wisam Day (On some days, I would say that AWD is as good as SMW)
2. Ajmal Silver Shade (tied with Al-Wisam Day. Silver Shade is really boasts the metallic quality of SMW while AWD is about the citrus and florals. Silver Shade also smells a bit like Mefisto without the sparkle)
3. Al-Rehab Silver roll-on
4. Al-Rehab Spray (smells like Johnson's Cottontouch Newborn Wash & Shampoo)
5. Armaf Derby Club House Blanche
Of the Armafs I have tried, here's how I would rank them by quality from best to worst:
Club de Nuit Intense for Women
Club de Nuit Intense for Men tied with Derby Club House Blanche
I've purchased all of my Armaf fragrances for $20 or less. For the price, you get great quality, much better than what you'd get for $20 from a western house. I definitely prefer Rasasi over Armaf from what I've smelled though.
