After a few members have bailed on their commitments, I'm going to ban members from participating. Please don't PM me unless you're able to commit to participating.
This happened to me as well although I never got tracking number.
I've been out of town and expect/hope I'll have it by Tuesday.
I sent 3 messages regarding my order. I never got a response but then got shipping confirmation...we'll see what happens.
Against my better judgment, given my goal to downsize and the reputation of this company, I grabbed MFK Aqua Universalis Forte. Hopefully I get it...

I'll add my .02 here because I also stumbled upon basenotes from the wet-shaving world.
I agree that DC 1913 is popular among wet shavers and their shave cream is supposed to be amazing, but I...
Still have some decants available. Bond No.9 Chez Bond is sold out.
Having sold my bottle of the old formulation I broke my sabbatical and bought a bottle before it was back ordered on luckyscent.
Don't know if I can say this but I am offering to split my bottle...
I have them here and there. One of these days I'd like to go through them...
Added Domenico Caraceni 1913

Added Florentine Iris.
Added Zegna Italian Bergamot

I didn't remember it having the crazy projection it has and I quite possibly over applied. Maybe in a few weeks I'll try it again and go a little lighter on the trigger.
Primrose- 5 year olds...
I've been DE shaving for 5 years now. While I have a number of products and enjoy the variety, the razor and blade combo is key. The DE89 is a great choice for a razor. Like other's have...
It had been awhile since I'd worn Me Labo' s Santal 33 so on a whim I decided to put it on this morning. It didn't disappoint, in fact it smelled better than I remembered...a nice sandalwood base...
2 wears each of Mancera Cedrat Boise and Bond No 9 Chez Bond.
I've sampled/own TV, Herod and Tabac Rouge and of the three I prefer Tabac Rouge with TV a close second and Herod not far behind...
I really enjoy Antico Caruso. Arso is loved by many although I'm not a fan.
That's a good one as well, although I don't find it to be similar to the others...I'll have to compare.
I haven't tried the PB but I think Antico Caruso is superior to Le Male.
I'm still at a loss. With so many houses, with so many frags, why all this wasted time (including my own) focused on Creed...
As others have said, it's a nice clean scent. Many Vetiver frags are centered on the root (i.e. Dirty/earthy). OV is more of a vetiver leaf scent. As others have suggested, OV is very similar to the...
Mods - I think earlier comments get to a more reasoned dialog regarding my initial post. Feel free to close this thread as the partisans seem to be going at it...again...
Tauer LDDM. I respect but I found it overpowering and couldn't get myself to enjoy it.
Edit - I'd add Tuscan Leather which a few others have mentioned.
Thank you all for your insight. I'm still at a loss as to why Creed is so frequently discussed on this forum.
Mods - some have mentioned that this thread redundant. If that's the case feel free...
I simply want the opinion of, if you will, a non-partisan. Is that possible?
I'm curious, which is why I asked the question. Query as to why you'd respond if you are completely uninterested?
This issue confounds me. In a particular thread I was accused of being a Creed fanboy/schill for simply making a comment in support of a particular scent. This seems to be an almost knee-jerk...
Again, you're historically incorrect. He abdicated his thrown. Facts are facts...
In addition to the above you could try Peau de Peche by Kieko Mecheri.
Aside from your comments directed at me, I found your claim that the Duke of Windsor personally involved in the death of millions to be without merit or understanding of actual history.
Here's one of many:
I just don't agree with the distinction that "honoring" a nazi sympathizer is worse than supporting a brand that was involved with War.
But I really need to stop paying attention to this thread,...
If Henry Ford was a nazi sympathizer then the entire brand is, in effect, tainted under the OP's rationale as the brand bears the name of a nazi sympathizer and thus "honors" him. Same as Creed...
This is a bit ridiculous. While I'm not a fascist and am a Jew, I enjoy Creed fragrances and have no issues enjoying Royal Mayfair. I also don't buy into any of the marketing of Creed - for me it's...
I think you guys scared off the OP...or he's busy swimming in Royal Mayfair...
I know this is the opposite of what many of us seek. Typically I am fairly conservative with my fragrances - I want to smell it and I want those close to me to be able to smell it. But sometimes I...
I'd check on badgerandblade.com or shavenook.com.
I really enjoy Reflection Man, and wear it quite a bit. I also like Bleecker St, however as others have commented elsewhere on basenotes, I find it to be too synthetic smelling to truly love it.
I don't find RO to be similar to the Malle at all. As far as comparing the Malle to S&W, I can't comment but now think I should do a side by side comparison.
Hi there basenoters. I'm hoping to acquire Armani Acqua di Gio Profumo.
I'm also interested in the Zegna Essenze line, in particular Sicillian Mandarin and possibly Indonesian Oud.
It's hard to tell, but in my small sample size of selling/trading fragrances, I'd say that the South is disproportionately represented.
Every Old Spice Flanker
Off the top of my head, and limiting myself to CREED, three better than Aventus are:
But as many have stated, this is all subjective. If you like Aventus try the...
Thanks, Grant! That would be great!
That's frustrating. I've been fortunate to mostly have positive experiences when it comes to using the Marketplace. However, IMO, this is what the feedback system is for. It's such an aberration...
While I wish I could get to 12, I don't think that's possible. There are just to many fragrances I enjoy to cap it at 12. It's strange because if you ask someone who's not on BN if having 12...
I decided to get a decant due to the fact that the early reviews seem to be quite positive and future batches may differ. I think the best "deal" will be had when it hits the gray market and sites...
I thought about that, but since I've used the marketplace so much, I really didn't want to set up a new account.
I've also thought of using an excel spreadsheet, journal, etc, but since I am...
I ended up deleting all fragrances in my wardrobe, but when I entered my SOTD all of my old wearing came back...so I deleted but wasn't able to reset the wearings...grrrr :-)
Stopped by the downtown Seattle Nordstroms today and was told that they wouldn't get Royal Mayfair until November (they didn't even have a tester). I think this is because NM has some exclusivity...
I haven't used the wardrobe function of BN for some time and I'd like to reset the number of times worn in my wardrobe, i.e. zeroing them out. I'd also be fine with deleting my entire wardrobe since...
Thanks for all the wonderful opinions you've shared. I've made or will make another purchase or two this month and then plan to take a break until around Thanksgiving (so I can take advantage of...
This is exactly what I have been thinking! Spend time and appreciate the scents I have, maybe sell the ones I'm not interested in and, in time, acquire others I might enjoy.
Didn't see that thread, Mods, feel free to delete/combine as you see fit.
This really isn't about anyone else. If it was, I would have stopped acquiring fragrances a LONG time ago! This is more about appreciating what I have and getting to know about fragrances based on...
Over the past few years I have accumulated a number of fragrances samples, decants and bottles. I have so many that I don't even think I've finished one sample! I've tried to slow down with...
First of all, I know all is relative when I ask, "Is it worth it," but I got a message from OJ that they are offering "samples" of Black Gold for $72 shipped. I enjoy other fragrances from the house...
While I much prefer both AdP Colonia and Colonia Essenza, I think Gendarme is exactly what the OP may be looking for.
Xerjoff Fiero should also be considered.
