Vintage His and Hers Gift Set
I was on a thread here today, when something hit me.
We were talking about how some very popular men's designer fragrances, much loved at the moment by most of the world, are completely unloved here. These fragrances are nice enough, but they just don't grab anybody's

Vetiver can be Green and wet, or it can be smokey and dry. It can wax floral or turn dirty and musky. But it almost always lasts and lasts. It tends to evolve as it dries down lending dimension to an otherwise linear juice. Once dry it can develop powder, sweet or spice. It is frequently blended with woods, but is a grass/root itself.
I've never even smelled a Creed perfume, but when I'm next in London, I'm going to test a few. Do you aficionados have any recommendations for me, Creed wise? My personal tastes range from Agent Provocateur and Diane (the new Von Furstenberg) to Gucci Rush, Elie Saab and J'Adore. Which Creed, if any, will I like? Thank you, oh wise fellow perfumeheads!
I have to say I'm extremely disappointed with the new version of Samsara- it's not the same scent at all!
I fell completely in love a couple years ago with the partial bottle of the original EDT version, which I swapped with a kind fellow basenoter. I loved it! Everybody who smelled me loved it! Even strangers and folks I'd just met commented on it. I felt I had found my holy grail.
But then I ordered the new version, and it's only the faintest interpretation
