Royal Water Fragrance Reviews

Royal Water goes on fresh and clean with an obvious juniper zing ever present.
Citrus abounds and gives an almost good quality soapy feel to this fragrance,similar to TF Azure Lime on my skin.
Basil notes are subtle and add a refreshing herbal backdrop which provides depth and really enhance the juniper and citrus topnotes.Very refreshing and invigorating with the addition of mint.
As Royal Water approaches the mid notes and beyond the juniper really comes into its own with its tart smell and it looses some of its original sweetness and zestiness but the musk and signature Creed ambergris help hold it all together.
I don't experience any of the cleaning solution comparisons which some have experienced.My overview is of a crisp and clean spring/summer fragrance with real depth and Creed quality.
For mine this is no ordinary aquatic fragrance,very regal indeed, and one which I look forward to wearing during the warmer months to follow.

They can call it basil or juniper or whatever, but this is cleaning-supply-type citrus over loads and loads of cloves.

First off I would like to say I love the bottle - The newer clear one.

Anyways, this scent has NOTHING to do with "Water." It starts off super sharp citrus then dries down to a basil-peppermint disaster. It's very rancid. I almost have to keep smelling my arm just to see how messy it is.

Sorry for those of you who like it, I am just not impressed. I feel like the name alone is a lie.

Longevity is excellent.

This fragrance is not that old and it has been made in late 90's but it has more a classic vibe with only modern twist.
The opening is a fresh and clean musky scent that is nice and pleasant.
I can smell a fresh minty scent plus some neroli with it's citrusy and kind of soapy aroma while there is a strong yet smooth musky scent right beside it. I can also smell a transparent floral notes that I can't point at the name, but it's there and I can feel it in every step from the opening to the end.
The quality of the notes is OK but it's a little lower from Creed's usual standards in my opinion.
In the mid the minty feeling of the scent goes away and those fresh citrusy notes settle down. now I can smell a creamy, buttery, kind of metallic sweet smell with soft animalic vibe and a smooth yet easily detectable smoky woody (maybe smooth leathery) aroma beside these notes.
The mid is kind of strange and not that great in my opinion! it's not completely classic but it's not modern either. the scent wonders between these two genres.
The base is a soft semi sweet musky scent with smooth fresh feeling in the background.
It's a good scent but not overally well done.
Projection is above average and longevity is around 5-6 hours on my skin.

یه عطر نسبتا خوب از برند کرید که با وجود اینکه اواخر دهه 90 میلادی ساخته شده و نسبتا جدیده اما بیشتر تم کلاسیک داره با یه ته مایه های مدرن و امروزی
رایحه ابتدایی این عطر با بوی شاداب نعناء و نرولی شروع میشه که یه حس خنک و مرکباتی و کمی صابونی و شاداب به عطر میدن و رایحه کاملا مشخص و البته ملایم مشک هم این دو تا رو همراهی میکنه
در کنار اینا من یه بوی گلی هم حس میکنم. یه بوی ملایم و البته مشخص از گلها که بدک نیست اما من زیاد خوشم نمیاد و تقریبا کمابیش تو همه مراحل تغییر بوی عطر حس میشه
تو رایحه میانی بوی نعنایی تقریبا از بین میره و رایحه شاداب و مرکباتی و صابونی نرولی ملایمتر میشه
همزمان با این تغییرات عطر یه بوی نیمه شیرین و شاید بشه گفت کره مانند و مقداری حس حیوانی به خودش میگیره که در کنارشون یه بوی کمی تلخ و دودی و شایدم بشه گفت یه رایحه خفیف چرمی وجود داره
بوی عطر یه جورایی حس فلزی داره. در نظر بگیرین اگه آلومینیوم بو داشت یه همچین حسی میداشت بوش
رایحه میانی چندان جالب نیست. نه کاملا حس کلاسیک داره و نه کاملا حس مدرن. انگار بین این دو تا گروه سرگردان داره پرسه میزنه
رایحه پایه هم یه بوی ملایم و نیمه شیرین مشک هست با کمی حس شاداب
پخش بوی متوسط یه بالا و نسبتا خوبی داره و ماندگاریش هم بین 5-6 ساعت روی پوست هست
در مجموع کار متوسطی هست از این برند و شخصا زیاد باهاش حال نکردم

I ordered this blindly based on the notes but after the research i made, i noticed that a lot are classified it as feminine....
When i received it and sprayed it on the skin, i realize that is not a feminine perfume, not at all. is a Soft citrus fresh spicy fragrance. A well made one that does not remind me pledge as many are saying but above all, does not remind any other perfume i know. This is a male fragrance, a woman can wear it off course but is a male perfume, citrucy with basil mint and juniber berries...this is what you get.
I really enjoy it, is elegant and classy! Sorry but female perfumes for me do not smell this way.
My wife says that as much as she loves top notes, that much dislikes the base notes because they smell like dirty for her...dont know if she is right or wrong...

Royal Water is quintessentially a cologne. On me it leans more masculine but women could definitely wear it easily. As a woman, I prefer my colognes leaning more on the feminine side. I'd love this on a man. t reminds me of Jo Malone Lime Basil and Mandarin but a little less intense. Royal Water could be renamed Lemon Basil and Juniper if it were in the Jo Malone line. Seems like it would be the perfect scent for the office. I read somewhere that this was commissioned for Princess Diana. I find it hard to believe that she actually would wear such a scent. I imagine her in fresh white florals. Overall, nice but not my cup of tea. Very herbal.

If you're someone who likes to blend fragrances, this seems like the most blend-able Creed I've ever tried. I can see this blending particularly well with Virgin Island Water, Love in White, and Spring Flower.

It was a little minty with a generic perfume vibe to it. Different from all the other creeds. But, pale in comparison.

Creed Royal Water is likely to be the most slept on fragrance this house has to offer. Yes, it does have Lemon, Lime, Peppermint, Juniper, Basil, Ambergris, and Musk. Absolutely and simply, there is no denying it. Although, the wizardry takes place when its sprayed directly on the body; best done right after a nice warm shower in the morning.

In the beginning this is an all out citrus fight between Lemon versus' Lime. While the two are slugging one another in blaze of heavy penetrating notes, Peppermint who is the ring judge dances around gracefully not too far from this citrus battle. The fight goes on for quite awhile giving the fans what they paid for. Later during the bout Lemon and Lime begin to show signs of slow fatigue leaning against each other as Peppermint struggles to set them apart. As the match continues on both fighters start sweating background notes of Juniper with subtle hints of fresh Basil Leaf. This is quite a show; However as the main event winds down to a close the final bell sounds. Both fighters take a seat in their corners as the focus turns to the ringside judges' Ambergris & Musk for the final decision. As the crowd awaits with ponder both Ambergris & Musk work wonderful together to tally the score.

Creed Royal Water might be viewed as a disappointment for some who may have not taken the time to develop dedication for quality & satisfaction from the fragrance house. The likes of Green Irish Tweed, Aventus, Millesime Imperial, Bois de Portugal, and many others; Royal Water is very welcoming, extremely clean, mature, and inoffensive. This scent does not beg for attention by others, but for the wearer it shows appreciation for good taste on both men and women.

Gosh, I really Love this stuff!

Royal Water is one of my favorite Creed creations. If you've ever had a gin and tonic drink or similar gin and lime/lemon cocktails, this is the fragrance version of those.

It's crisp, cool and aromatic, with a hint of citrus, basil and mint. The juniper is noticeable, a bit effervescent and lightly peppery, yet the whole thing still comes off aquatic and very fresh. The dry down is lightly musky and clean.

Interestingly, it still manages to be kind of dry and somewhat austere.
I'd also go so far as to say, that this fragrance projects an aura that is "buttoned up, regal and British."

Royal Water is ideal for happy hour gatherings, formal cocktail events, power luncheons and semi-formal occasions where high brow drinks will be served.

The gin scent is noticeable, so be careful if/when you wear this, as you may be accused of drinking, even though you haven't.

Over all, this is a more mature scent, good day or night, probably best for warmer or milder weather.

This is "royally offensive." The memory of this scent quickly comes to mind, but it is not a good one. I bought a 4 oz bottle a year ago and sprayed it on less than 10 times before it was given to my 5 year old nephew lol. It smells way too loud. basil mainly, and juniper and mint, but there's this mildew vibe that ties them all together that creates a disgusting ostentatious smell...Just look elsewhere and save your money. I'm tempted to use the adjectives, "disgusting" or "repulsive." honest opinion folks, not just being oppositional for the sake of being oppositional. :) Sample before you buy

when you really want to impress others, but do a really shitty job at it, this is the perfume you should buy.

I love this scent. It was given to me as a gift by my Mom so it holds a special place in my heart. This is the scent I wear when I'm feeling rather sporty. Its a very crisp scent. When I want something different this is the perfume I choose. I think its the mint that makes it special - it comes right to the forefront. Just that first whiff of it - so beautiful and clean. It also makes me very happy when wearing it.

Good work with this fragrance! I see it as Selection Verte played on a different, more "junipery" octave.

The initial sour citrus blast is indescribable but pleasant.

The fragrance then morphs into something resembling the mint blend in Selection Verte, without the peppercorn spices, but with added juniper and burnt orange.

Those that enjoy Selection Verte would like this as a day to day invigorating and pleasantly refreshing fragrance.

I've reevaluated Royal Water, because my initial wearing was from a bottle at a disreputable brick and mortar that is known for unintentionally peddling fake Creeds, and indeed I think that bottle was a fake, because this sample from The Perfumed Court smells much different.

The fake I sampled several years ago smelled of citrus, mostly lemons, and not much else. Maybe a little white musk with an off-kilter herbal vibe. Very likely a mix of something like 80% 4711, and 20% Pino Silvestre, with a ton of perfumer's alcohol to flatten it all out. The REAL sample worn today smells of multi-dimensional lemons, limes, and bergamot in a glittering top note that literally lances my sinuses. As far as citrus accords go, this one is no joke.

Where I think Creed got it wrong is in the integration of peppermint and basil. The bitter citrus is very nice (although I see Jeffwithfrag's point about the bug spray associations), but when conjoined with fresh herbs, it actually smells a little chemical. Peppermint can go one of two ways - either minty or ambery - and here it attempts to go ambery, when in fact it should go the opposite way. The rather thin basil note clashes with it, and I'm left with an oddly bland Italian seasoning effect (peppermint simply doesn't translate here). It's not a confused composition, so much as a confusing composition. If one lacks a familiarity with peppermint, its discordant effect here will lead one to think that Royal Water is a disaster. I'm confident that it's just a slight miscalculation on the part of the perfumer that makes it very unusual, perhaps in a bad way, but not in a disastrous way. Still, if only Creed had used the same peppermint that was used in Cool Water - pert, minty, and very green - RW would smell much better.

Eventually there's a strange juniper-esque berry note, a soapy, sour ambergris, and some kind of powdery white laundry musk. I get eight hours out of this fragrance, quite solidly. I think the bright citrus top is good, the herbal bridge to the soapy heart is just so-so, and the soapy-musky base (which endures for six or seven hours) is pleasant and inoffensive, but below par for Creed. If you want a fresh, soapy, green Creed, Original Vetiver is a much better option. Wearing Royal Water today, I found myself thinking a lot about Claiborne Sport, due to the citrus/herbal/berry/musk structure. Sport bears some similarities to Eternity for Men, but it does shed those associations as it dries down, and I'm pretty sure its soapy-fresh blackberry note is in the same league as RW's. In fact, Claiborne Sport as a whole is entirely capable of taking on RW, and it would probably win in a side-by-side. Try before buying this one. You may very well think it is not worth the money, even at a discount.

Picked up a sample of this from a fragrance counter after smelling a freshly sprayed card. The top was striking and different, an aquatic take on aromatics with some citrus and caught my attention. Wearing it the next day, it morphed into a soggy washed out mess on my skin in the first 30 minutes. Made me imagine Oliver Creed as a Mean Girl, and "Royal Water" as his olfactory entry in the Burn Book under a picture of Kate Middleton.

I wasn't even going to get a vial of this quasi-EdC, but my friend had a duplicate. My disclaimer here is that the stuff is so weak, even by Creed or EdC standards, that it's actually difficult to review. Initially it's a vague but very sharp lemon with some florals that lend a slight creamy aspect. It smells like it could practically give you heartburn with so much sourness. Once that dissipates, the milkiness of the florals becomes more apparent, and gives it a slight "expensive guest soap" vibe, which is unexpected and nice, though it definitely causes the fragrance to turn suddenly from fairly masculine to much more feminine. Whatever's left has a surpisingly natural grassiness, with just a hint of sweet dusty wood, and might almost be like one of the less over-the-top drugstore air fresheners ("summer breeze", "crisp linens"?). I'm just not sure that this would do me any good applied to my body or clothing; the scent is too "under the radar", and it would be gone in a flash on skin.

Absolutely stunning fragrance. Citrus opening seems dominated with bergamot, lime and possibly lemon. This is masterfully blended with the verdant peppermint and basil notes lending an herbaceous accord. Juniper berry offers a slight gin-like quality and spiciness. Olivier has created a timeless scent yet again. At once classic, but equally as modern in feeling. The dry down is just as amazing, being soapy and fresh. A great daytime, warm weather scent. I imagine walking through an olde English garden, with the warm sun perfusing the summer air with herbal notes. (45)

I really like the juniper in this scent, plays well with the basil/herbal facets and the citrus keeps it quite bright.

Peaceful, adds some serenity to hectic days.

Longevity: moderate, lasts quite long on fabric
Sillage: low/moderate


There is something about the drydown that is distantly similar to Caroline H's 212, but that is where the similarity begins and ends.

Beautiful, whimsical, and immaculate! The name is properly given because this smells like something a regal prince or fashionable king would wear.. Severely underated this scent is Handsomely refined and goes on light, but has decent projection and longevity.. Opens with the crisp citrus and slowly mellows with the peppermint and berries which gives it that rich royalty fresh scent.. One of my favorite spring/summer fragrances..

I do not like to write negative reviews but here it goes. I bought Creed Royal Water last year. I was so exited to purchase my second Creed fragrance. When I got it and put it on, the smell was so faint that I could hardly smell it. It lasted (no kidding) 1 hour tops on my skin. I was very dissapointed with this fragrance. I gave it to my Dad, who does not like heavy colognes, and he loved it.

Smells like magic if you have the right BATCH. As we all know, Creed is famous for their different Batches or whatever and depending on which one you get, it can either be very strong, much lighter, extra citrusy, extra woody or something else and with Creed's Royal Water, that certainly applies. I have tried different batches of this before and others have smelled better than others. I actually right now currently own a bottle of this and too be honest, I have liked the previous ones that I have had and tried before then the one I currently have now. Oh well, looks like my search will continue for that perfect bottle. The Citrus, that Basil and that fresh summer soapy scent is what makes this a masterpiece, it's one everyone should try, makes a great summer or spring cologne or perfume. It is very unisex indeed.

On paper this smelled very fresh and it was the top notes I could smell on the paper, mainly the citrus notes. I bought this perhaps 10 years ago after smelling it on the paper stick. It was perfect for me at the time, as I was into fresh citrus scents 10 years ago. But I've not yet used it. Then I thought today, after reading the reviews here, that I must try it on my skin. I must say I'm glad I didn't try it on my skin within these 10 years that have passed, 'cause I wouldn't have liked it back then. The scent comes off on me just the way I like it TODAY, woody, amber type, add a little mystery. I'm so glad the base notes is what comes off on my skin. The amber comes off quite strong on me. I can smell amber and musk and woody notes. Just the way I like it today. Today I like amber scents and I can defenitely smell the amber in this. It's a cosy fall and winter type of scent. It's funny how I bought it 'cause I smelled the top notes on paper, the fresh citrus and liked it back then and now, 10 years later, with a change in taste, the notes that comes off on my skin happens to be the very ones that I like today, 10 years later. Like some kind of time machine. Woopee! :-)

Not too fond of this Creed, mainly because of the lack of sweetness to the citrus and the harsh opening.

This seems more herbal, and actually gives me a 'watery' effect with the peppermint(?) and herbs. A strange blend that basically doesn't 'click' is also a vibe that some have got from this. One might even make the dredded 'bug-spray' association too. Creed is not the most renowned for it's blending, their exclusive line is improvement but this is an older scent and is just not refined enough for today's competition.

So, definitely in order- it's juniper berries, basil, mint and citrus in the backdrop. Powerful, but too harsh with the blending, the juniper is way too strong. Not the smooth, sweet citrus I was somewhat expecting. Dry-down is ambergris (very good) and musk, finally adding some sweetness and real quality one associates with a niche scent. It all come too late though.

The dry-down is nice and I usually like Creeds for this, but as my reviews go- a scent should be worth it's money from 1st spray and this sadly is not quite so.

2/5.

Now, that's a story, I can tell you:

Last Saturday I was shopping as always in my usual supermarket with my hubby. We waited in the queue and I looked to the floor, there it was: A little phiole!

As a perfumista I would have never expected to see a phiole there, I touched it with my shoe, never expected it to be a perfume sample, because, you know, that would be too obvious to hope for.

It was a Creed sample (original) of Royal Water! Isn't that great? I mean, I would have never ever craved that fume, but what the heck? That's good karma, I guess. I was sooo happy!

The perfume itself is citrusy (what I don't like) and weak (what I don't like) and overpriced (what I don't like). It should be named "L'Eau de Creed". There are better Eaus out there, bunches, heaps, tons.

Alas, it wanted to be with me, that makes me happy.

Top note is too sharp...but revitalizing overall. So-so for me.

The powdery grapefruit middle not lasts for 3-4 hours, despite it's strong come-on. Pretty soon, after 5 hours, all you have left with is a ghost of the formal fragrance.

Now, this IS a guest who leaves gracefully :-D

WOW! Not all that "royal" (read: rich or opulent), really; and not all that "watery" nor aquatic. I have heard around that this was made in memory of Princess Diana (inspired by her, or as an homage to her "style"). I find it quite well made and very interesting...

This begins with a boatload of sharp and somewhat dry citrus on me, paired with a very warm, rich and pungent fresh basil in a very yummy and delectable accord. Extremely citric and aromatic, for sure. As it begins to settle (somewhat) the pairing of the sharp green juniper (GOD I love that plant!) and cool demulcent mint, together, do not overpower the opening as much as flow out of it as a natural extension of it. It remains "zesty", but becomes something very snuggly and comfy while remaining very green and natural. I am reminded of walking on retaining walls covered in juniper branches and needles, as a child, (sharp, somewhat prickly sprigs of a cool green softness against my skin) and smelling fresh picked (and then muddled) mint leaves...almost mojito-like, only infinitely more elegant. I have to hand it to Oliver Creed, he knows his stuff and even the simplest of his constructs are stunning! The eventual drydown is simply musk (non-animalic) and a very marine type amber(gris) note. Sexy, yet ever so slightly sour with hints of sweetness and sunkissed beaches. Really impressive...

Sillage: decent
Longevity: very good
Overall: 3.75/5

Despite the fact that what I had HOPED this would smell like and what it ACTUALLY smelled like were rather different; I can say it is well constructed, classy and done exquisitely (as far as development and proportionate combinations). It has (at one point, between the top and heart notes) a very close similarity to ASPREY London's PURPLE WATER without the flowers...but I imagine THAT is just the citruses and basil shifting into the green heart notes. While I prefer PW overall, as a summer scent; Royal Water is invigorating and subtle at once, and I would wholeheartedly, without any doubts or second thoughts, buy a full bottle of this-for the right (discounted) price...

To me, if there is chance to take a fragrance to heaven, no doub will be this one, start with the citrus and peppermint that are just fantastic, the middle notes berry and juniper which are the one that stays on me for a good time, this is the kind for mature people, I guess between 35's and 40's, perfect for stays at home the whole weekend and drive crazy your lady.
Get ready to get many compliments from people close to you.

Royal Water is a bit too much for me with its very heavy (but not sharp) citrus and herb opening; especially the basil. It's a tiny bit spicy or frizzy too, I think. Yes, it's complex and does smells expensive. I am not sure how this is suitable for women because, in my opinion, it seems more appealing toward men. In addition, Silver Mountain Water is better, and it's much softer and it's more unisex, which I prefer.

Very nice smooth citrus opening. The drydown is soft and slightly powdery. This is a Creed I might buy.

Edit: The test above was based on a spray of a paper strip. On my skin the opening ok but there is a strange animal note popping out that is nasty on the drydown. I will not buy this!!!

A complex citrus herbal. Top notes are peachy citrus. The citrus is not as clear as in some of the other Creeds. But on the flip side RoyalWater is more complex. Theres juniper and basil in the heart notes, with a dash of cumin the base. The basil is very well done. Somehow the fragrance still maintains an aura of airiness...must be the mint. Good longevity.

This is not a masculine scent. Too many errors about masculine-feminine-unisex thing!

Imperial Millesime IS UNISEX, not masculine. This one is also UNISEX fragrance.
Please look at the OFFICIAL Creed site!

One of the fresher scent EVER made! I won't buy it cause it's poor longevity on me, but this is the only downside. Other than that, again, this is a freshness MASTERPIECE!

This musk-mint-juniper berries combo is DIVINE for my nose!

I am really loving Royal Water. I definetly get the hit of juniper berry at the beginning ( which is whee I am now ). I cannot wait for the rest to unfold. I can imagine a cozy date at an elegant restaurant ( jazz ) wrapped in a beautiful cashmere sweater, enveloped in this delicious fragrance. LOVE it. Spring Flowers is next but this one WILL be a collection addition in the near future.

Creed ROYAL WATER is a veritable savory gourmand, what with the juniper berries, basil, citrus, and mint! Although basil, citrus and mint are well-known essential ingredients for fine cuisine, I know of only two uses for juniper berries: to make gin and to make sauerbraten. Since I rarely drink hard liquor and stopped eating mammals some years ago, it's a real treat to encounter a female-friendly fragrance with a significant juniper component.

The basil, mint, and citrus are present in significant concentration as well, producing a wonderful aromatic medley. ROYAL WATER is a pleasure to wear, and perfect for hot humid weather as we have here today in the greater metropolitan Boston area. Refreshing! Also has reasonably good staying power for an aromatic frag. Definitely suitable for women and men.
