It is a classy, solid perfume for men, not kids. And it's probably not. Anyhow, I recently went through a pile of decants and decided to give Bdp a try again, and low and behold: it was an instant love. I think it's an over-priced clone of Pierre Cardin Pour Monsieur - which smells better by the way, even in cologne form. It has a great drydown, which is not so common in frags now a days. And it aged perfectly in a dark cabinet. Creed really outdid themselves with this masterpiece. I have a sample only and I like it so much - it's going on my "next to buy" list.

Perfume lovers: 601472 I did not care much for BdP when I first tried it. Possibly the king of the house of Creed. A very sophisticated, yet humble scent. This did nothing for me. I try it and was "WOW". i have 2 bottles, the 16f01 and 50ml new batch of 18B01, and for the new batches, which came out with new style bottles in 2018 i find next changes: Superb masculine fragrance and for me the epitome of class.

When I wear this I feel like I should be wearing a Tweed Jacket, sitting in a study or an office. This is more of a mature gentlemen's scent although younger people might also enjoy it. Just received a 250 ml flacon from 1987 original release. I received this as a gift from one of my best friends for my 30th Birthday. The most exquisite sandalwood fragrance ever made. It made a strong olfactory impression on me because it smelled sensational. I'm just saying.. smells really the same. It just works - not for the young, but great for the young at heart! Pure luxury in a bottle. This fragrance has an undeniable older gentleman vibe, but is timeless enough that all generations can appreciate it. Overall I am very impressed. It is best of Creed in my opinion! the opening has a scent reminiscent of hot sauce that quickly fades, not like the base of hot sauce but it has a spiciness, but that smell is gone after a minute, and what you get is a kind of spicy soapiness...then to come on here and find the notes are sandalwood and lavender...those are definitely the 2 prominent players make this a sort of a classic barbershop like scent. Bois du Portugal by Creed is an Oriental Woody fragrance for men, inspired by the fragrant trees of Portugal. It reminds me of a lot of classic British men's fragrances from the turn of the century; BDP could just as easily been released by Floris. It is now my current favourite full stop. As far as I am concerned I can only thank Creed for this piece of magic. Edit: looks like they got downvoted into oblivion, which is good. This simulation of leather is working vice versa in some leather scents which happen to smell like vetiver. Evokes a lot of memories for me because of the cedar note, which is not "new"--it's "aged" when it is blended with the other accords. I cannot recommend. Veuillez laisser ce champ vide. The performance is great on me lasting 12+ hours and projecting fairly well, which is somewhat rare for a Creed. However, it's of great quality, long-lasting and never offensive on the projection. The main difference is the opening. This has to be the classiest scent I have smelled. This is a scent you reach for when you want to wear something that smells old, but in a classic way which is why it is best suited for formal or dressed up occasions, preferably in the colder months. This is for the mature crowd and when I spray it in the air, the first thing that comes to mind, is elderly people.... On first application you may think that its made for an older crowd. The bergamot opening is crisp and becoming, and I love the smoothness of the transition into the herbal lavender heart. I get sophisticated older mediterranean gentleman. Another idea is to find some vintage Pierre Cardin Pour Monsieur (for a low price on ebay), so long as you like leather notes. Smells like a classic aftershave more than a high end cologne. Yes, I have BDP and reserve this generally for the fall on "dressier" occasions. It has a green, somewhat woody opening, and gets much more woody in drydown. It has been reformulated but still a great scent. This is a powerful, mature fragrance from Creed, with woody, spicy notes that linger and project well. The dry down just gets better. This does not smell like "old man", it smells very professional and sophisticated. The opening of Creed's Bois du Portugal hits you like an olfactory ton of bricks. Not a youthful or interesting scent. Lavender, woods, and a tad bit of citrus. I only have a sample of this right now, but when that sample is used up, then I'll definitely be buying a bottle. Bracing bergamot at the top, leading into a pronounced lavender followed by a base dominated by smoky vetiver and ambergris. So far I’ve come back twice to change what my review says on here, , I normally wouldn’t bother but this has torn my whole reality apart again, with its subtle perfection of such a classic accord, attempted by so many, such a huge number of times. INITIAL REVIEW: I truly love this frag. (notes: you detect vetiver, bergamot, woodsy tones and a host of other notes). Seems more appropriate for older, distinguished men. I am glad I bought this fragrance. And this is the best I think I would say. The highly oriental quality surprised me from the listed notes: cedar, sandalwood, lavender, and vetiver, so I went on a fact-finding mission and learned that both cedar and sandalwood are often used to make incense. Oh yea, and don't give me that crap about the quality. It is a mixture of Old Spice and the green bottle of Polo in my opinion. Bois du Portugal is a classical, timeless fragrance for fuzzy men. I just tried BDP for the first time today, and have to say that it's definitely a quality product, but not my cup of tea.

I guess this is what makes perfume stand the test of time. . Fragrance is subjective - I get that. Dries down to a powdery wood with a hint of citrus. The millesime designation means that the best crops from a particular year’s harvest were used in the creation of that particular bottle of CREED fragrance. Even though I'm not really the target group for BDP, I decided to order a sample and test it out, and it's great! It has an old school smell to it but it is different than the others and it's what I felt a gentleman would smell like. This stuff is amazing; I wondered, did I spray the right one? Excellent vetiver and lavender scent. 302 J’aime. You need to be logged in (or register here) to use Private Notes. "Fly me to the moon" - yes I have to admit that the folklore of this being Frank Sinatra's signature scent makes me love it more lol.. It's a powerhouse Creed and lasts well on the skin all day. Somehow, though, it remains very relevant and modern. I was very touched by this generous gesture, but BdP is perhaps more suited for someone's 60th Birthday! If that is worth the high Creed price (there are cheaper alternatives), that's up to you. In the vein of Santos Cartier, Patou pour homme, Tzar Vc&a. In this phase BDP is dry, assertive and by all means masculine but, at the same time it's surrounded by a strong deja-vu feel that keeps going on and on and on...The fragrance evolves then into a sort of pwdery-woody oriental drydown that's even more conventional and unoriginal.

I am the happy owner of the Holy Trinity of men's scents: Guerlain 1995 Heritage, present Parfum de Nicolai New York and Creed Bois du Portugal. Gorgeous. It is not a bad scent, just not how I want to remembered. I don’t really care about compliments when I wear fragrance, I care about what I feel when I am wearing a fragrance. It is for an exalted man with perfect outfit style. It is a refined scent. It is rich, classy and classic for certain. And no, they are all different.

An explosion of aroma-therapeutic lavender off the top of BdP slides rapidly into a sandalwood, cedarwood, and ambergris arrangement. The ambergris gives the drydown a kind of dusty / sparkly feel, which is to die for! It's not just great. While this does smell nice.
