CREED Bois du Portugal EDP Perfume Review

Creed Bois du Portugal

I talked my husband into wearing CREED Bois du Portugal and he hated it. He seriously whined like a little baby for hours over this one. He kept saying that it smelled of “stomach churning embalming fluid” and even used my most despised phrase in perfume speak: “old lady”. Sniffing it on him, it smelled wonderful.
