Reviews of Silver Mountain Water by Creed

There are 250 reviews of Silver Mountain Water by Creed.

It opens up with some citrus and bergamot that introduces a dry bitter citrus undertone that is met with black currant and tea notes. The concoction comes off of something that is metallic, herbal, and fresh. After a while the base is supported with the familiar ambergris note with some musk and woods.

Performance was okay, I got around 6 hours with this scent. This is probably more ideal for the spring months just when the weather is warming up. I could see this working for both casual and work settings. I personally do not see myself reaching for this one.

What I find remarkable is that over half of the neutral and negative reviews seem to list "short duration" as the number one complaint with this fragrance. Every Creed I have tried, including GIT, have suffered from this deficiency. Really like the scent, the black currant is really unique, the citrus is juicy and musk soothing - but only for a short time. I really enjoy SMW, but the price and short life make this a no-go for me.

Despite the large volume of reviews for this one, I saw virtually no mention of alternatives. Armaf Club de Nuit Sillage is an incredibly close copy. Bergamot, black currant, tea, musk, amber - it is all there. But unlike SMW, it is a beast. I put a single shot on my forearm at the office, and within a minute my two co-workers in the next room were opening their windows and saying that the scent was overwhelming. (Note to self: apply at home at least a half hour before getting to work). Creed can't touch this. And duration - ACdNS is at least double SMW. Price? Around $30.

So if you are one of those who said that SMW was "nice, but too fleeting" or "great smell but not worth the price", give Armaf Sillage a try.

Had this for a while now,rarely worn. Likely acquired for the acclaim and reference.

This is really strong and sweet to my nose. Lots of musk and tangy, juicy and tart fruitiness, dunno.... "clumsy" or "teensy" is the best I can put it. Everything is dialled up to 11. Cordial like sweet tang and syrup. Wince.

Confession: have scrubbed this off numerous times.

A great summer fragrance between an Eau de toilet and an EDP, simple but complex with
a refined blend of citruses, musk, rooty vetiver, celery, fennel seeds, woody notes, and ambergris. The rooty vetiver gives a coffee feeling to the nose. It seems each bach is different so mine has a sour/coffee side blended with the citruses. Not a feminine fragrance but a sophisticated scent for any occasion and time of the day, long-lasting on the skin and on fabrics, also not loud or weak. I wonder if the name ''Silver Mountain'' has any relation with the ''Silver Mountain'' in Huerfano, Colorado, US ? Did the ''Sangre de Cristo Mountains'' (Blood Of Christ Mountains) and the Crystal Fall in Colorado, both close to each other, inspired Oliver Creed to create Silver Mountain Water?

Green tea & black currant with strong metallic notes...on my skin, I get mostly metalic black current with a little green and citrus. Fairly linear. Stronger than VIW, but nowhere near Aventus.

Not a fan of the metallic note and something about the dry down doesn't agree with my kin. Pretty meh, especially considering the price.


Pleasant and fresh but nothing special considering the price. In fact close up something jars which seems to be a sour citrus mix. So I would not buy it. Would I wear it if someone gave me a bottle? Only if I ran out of Milesime Imperial!

Fragrance: 7/10
Projection: 7.5
Longevity: 7.75
