perfectly adequate
Most people I've seen reviewing Creed fragrances usually skip this one, they barely mention it or describe it as forgettable and even though it's really nice I get where they're coming from however, Creed's Royal Water is very clean, nice and classy.

It opens with a nice citrus blast followed by a big dose of Juniper Berry and a hint of Basil, once again all very bright and classy and very safe and that's my only complaint (if you can call it that). I'd hope for something a little more daring, a little more exciting and Royal Water seems a little bland or plain, it won't offend anybody though, you may not get any compliments but EVERYONE will remember how good you smell.

Great office wear, very distinguished but the key word here is 'uncomplicated', it does nothing exciting, it doesn't go out of its way but what it does it does goes a long way

Love at the 2nd glance
I used the souk here more and more because I see blind purchases from 30 Euro upwards so slowly as senseless. You can't buy a Creed fragrance that you can't get for less than 100 Euro blind unless you don't care about 120-200 Euro. So I received the Royal Water with several bottlings (Souk is really top, those I had to deal with were all absolutely correct, friendly and reliable). First I always read the comments here and get a picture of a scent based on the statements/comments. I often wonder when description and reality don't fit together for me. This was also the case with the Royal Water. Sprayed on the hand - smelled - and thought: Um necessary! That's Creed Number One I don't like. Petty, citric, a little old-fashioned. Not that I have to wash it off, but not as well as I expected. I put him on his side, then. After another test he got better. Most people will know that you just want a fragrance to please you because it's so well rated or in Youtube videos everyone says it's great (e.g. De Marly Layton, De Marly Herod) and you think "What's wrong with me that I don't like it?" These scents are then given several chances while others (Boss, CK, Davidoff etc) are quickly dealt with. With Creed, it's extreme for me. I often thought "Joa's ok but I'll never buy that for the price!" when I first tested it (so happens at Aventus, Viking, Royal Mayfair, SMW, MI, Himalaya, Bois du Portugal) and now I own them because they are all unique (uniquely good) to me at the 2nd glance. Unfortunately I notice that the more Creed, De Marly or other niche fragrances I test, the more of my former favorite fragrances (e.g. Dior Higher, Chanel Egoiste Platinum...) become more and more irrelevant. Not really worse, but less interesting. You get more and more into this obsession and then wonder why someone tells you that you stink when you wear Amouage Reflection while you often get compliments for JPG pour Homme. You don't want that to be true. The Royal Water - to get to the fragrance itself - is not citric/classical like Allure Edition Blanche but rather towards Dior eau Sauvage edt. Think you'll get less good reactions here wearing it. It's more of a classic fragrance for the fragrance freaks like me who are losing sight of the mainstream in the sense of "please everyone" more and more. With that in mind.

Well assembled, I notice the fresh citrus and green basil soiled by the animal base. Signature

Fresh citruses with a green and bright facet. The bergamot and the juniper berries work great together. Slightly spicy, floral and musky.
