sniffer64's Review of Silver Mountain Water by Creed

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.
