  1. Intellectual Dishonesty and Creed - What's it Like to be Royal?


    The house of Creed isn’t fooling anyone. That’s the word on the street.

    However, there’s a strain of logic that overshadows the Creed skeptics’ core argument that is deeply and irrevocably flawed. The logic in question is as follows:

    [B]Since Creed refuses to provide evidence in the form of vintage bottles, sales receipts, and royal warrants explicitly commissioning perfumes since the days of King George III and onward, one can safely conclude ...

  5. Samples from the Osmothèque, and the Uses of the Past
