Creed Viking - New But Old - Going Out With New Dispatches

Creed Viking is the latest scent to be released by Creed and I picked up a bottle recently so I could get our customers to experience the masculinity of the scent. It's not something that is a natural fit for me but I think it will resonate with our customers, even if just to get an idea of the scent. Creed does not release fragrances often, the last one being Aventus 6 years ago. The notes suggest something which does not exactly marry with my experience but I am told that Viking goes on strong and then mellows over the hours. 

To my mind the fragrance reminds me of new but old sunglasses. The kind of eyewear that was perhaps designed in the 80's but looked so interesting for the time that they still look modern in 2018. That's my impression of Viking. But you can be the judge when it heads out.


Top note: Calabrian Bergamot, Sicilian Lemon, La RĂ©union Baie Rose (pink peppercorn) 

Middle note: Peppercorn, Bulgarian Rose, peppermint 

Base note: Indian Sandalwood, Haitian Vetiver, Indian Patchouli, Lavandin Absolute
