      Thanks, Grant!

      Looks like some new bottle designs and some new and imaginative scent names.

      Do I detect a little bit of an Italian leaning with the name Acqua Originale? Has Creed abandoned its French origins?

      I'd be curious to try even though based on the names, none of them sound appealing.

      The bottle designs look quite feminine!

      Why some Creeds don't have in the pyramid the notes the scent is named after? vitiver withouth vetiver? Iris without iris?

      Can't wait to sample. Thanks for the updates!

      I wonder if any of these would be the next runner up against "Aventus, GIT, or Royal Oud"?

      I like the bottles too, but they do absolutely nothing to protect the juice from any light degradation. Yeah, I know, fragrances should be stored in a cool, dark place, but what's the point of making a beautiful bottle that spends 98% of its time in a box or at the back of a cupboard?

      I'm looking for another Aromatic Fougere (or two) and am intrigued with the Aberdeen Lavander [sic] in this series. I'm inclined to go with Lavande Ombree EDP by Au Pays de la Fleur d'Oranger instead, one because it has gotten awesome reviews, but also because I know the juice won't degrade as quickly in their bottles.

      Creed Boutique has Acqua Originale in windows and on counter. I'm dying to walk in a try them but they were really crowded. I will stop by after work.
