In this article we’ll be looking at my review of the Creed Vetiver Millesime mens cologne fragrance.
A cologne lover myself, I am always searching for the newest trends and recent fragrance launches from my favorite brands.
But even though I am eager and excited to try out something new, I still can’t help it when I can’t resist a really good-smelling cologne like the Creed’s Original Vetiver Cologne.
This product was launched way back in 2004 and it is still one of my favorites.
I like classic fragrances but what really draws me to this cologne is that it gives you that very interesting modern take on the classic Vetiver scent which I find really amazing not to mention that it is a unisex cologne suitable for both men and women.
Is this cologne a good one? Let’s have a look.

Released in 2004 and was created by Erwin Creed 7th Generation and Olivier Creed 6th Generation, the Creed Vetiver gives you a modern take of the classic fragrance of vetiver.
Its scent is derived from the plant’s roots giving you that really natural and fresh scent. This is also one of the reasons why classic vetiver fragrances have always been favorites among many.
With Creed, they were able to give it a modern twist giving you a classic yet an original effect. It has Mediterranean spice and citrus notes that gives you that sensual and very sophisticated scent.
Composition: The top notes for this cologne include bergamot, mandarin and ginger which give you that really citrus notes as the fragrance opens up. For many, this is a very refreshing and striking scent that is balanced with the middle notes.
Vetiver serves as the very heart of this scent along with Florentine Iris and Mysore sandalwood. The depth of the cologne gives you that musky note as well as ambergis.
The opening of the scent can be really strong but it perfectly evens out with the clean and refreshing scent of the vetiver and the base notes.
The Creed Vetiver Cologne gives you that unique blend of woody and citrus spice perfect for both men and women.
Best Use: With its cool and woody notes blended with citrus spice, the Creed Vetiver is suitable for any occasion. It is a very versatile scent that you can wear at any time of the day and in any occasion.
But in my case, I think it is best to use this for daytime wear especially when it can get really hot and humid. You feel refreshing, clean and cool which will surely draw attention.
So whether you are going to work or attending a special event, this fragrance is just amazing.
Longevity: Now let’s take a look at its longevity. For most great smelling fragrances, it has always been a concern as to whether they really last. And with Creed Vetiver Cologne, it really exceeded my expectations when it comes to longevity.
The cologne is long lasting. I’ve tried it for daily use and after engaging in highly physical activities, the scent still holds which is one positive factor why I am drawn to this scent.
You only need a few sprays on specific pulse points of the body to make the fragrance last.
With so many things to love about the Creed Vetiver Cologne, I cannot find any fault in its composition, longevity and over-all quality. Of course, every person has a different taste. I am a classic vetiver fan but I also know some people who are not into this type of scent.
Yet, no one can dispute that the scent of this cologne is really amazing. It is clean, refreshing, sensual and very sophisticated, a perfect blend of the classic and the modern times.
The citrus, woody and cool notes give you a certain kind of scent that you can wear anywhere you go and draw compliments.
For the quality of this cologne alone, I can say that I will definitely repurchase and it is a must try even for those who are not into vetiver fragrances.
