Creed 2000 Fleurs was my first foray into floral fragrances – up until then I was exclusively the lover of orientals. While 2000 Fleurs is often placed among florals and female fragrances, it definitely isn’t a prototypical example – there is enough spiciness in there that I would even placed it among unisex perfumes.
The perfume is available in 30ml (cca $125) and 75ml (cca $240) bottles. The larger bottle is considerably cheaper than the small one (around $150).
The perfume opens with a fresh, slightly cold bouquet of flowers - it is pretty hard to discern which is which.
On my skin, the middle notes are dominated by a brisk rose, spiced up with sandalwood and green tea. The drydown is very similar to the middle notes, only milder.
I’m a bit disappointed with the silage of this fragrance. It was my first venture in the niche perfumes and I have expected a stronger, more longlasting scent.
