OK , My misunderstanding.
I'll go back to my 23rd bottle of vodka.
WTF it has to do with my response is that he mentions that he is 23 in his post.
My response points out that he is a bullshitter and as such what he posts here should be seen in that light.
What is your point?
That's funny, on 5th April 2014 you wrote this :

Well said, you are probably right on all points.

Jeez Renato, 11,000 posts and you've never come across the Aventus batch variation thread .....
Well it works but it's not quite the same as making them invisible :undecided:
The thought never crossed my mind, but it's as simple as that, who'd have thought it ?
* So that explains all those visits to my profile page :shocked:
I've got an idea.
How about a Facebook type thingy that would block posts from individual members ?
I know a fair few would like me to be invisible and there are some here that I could live...
Actually many standard designer brands are available in Supermarkets in UK. This week I have seen Le Male and many others in Tesco.
Can't speak for USA though.
[QUOTE=JiveHippo;3141200]We've all known since day one that these threads are meaningless fluff, but how do you suppose we put an end to them?
And then you write : "There will be a big payoff in...
* Correction: The top 4 as voted for by those who for some reason saw some value in your polls and could be bothered to vote, predictably, will ALL be Creeds.

" Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticise the content of a post - criticising the poster is not."
I didn't ask what was the result of your polls, we all know there are a group of diehard Creed fans who will vote till the end of time here for their products.
I asked what the point was.
What exactly is the topic ?
If the point is to troll the Creed fans for 3 months and then announce that this bizarre phenomenon only exists on Basentes the O.P. has rather blown his cover.
You don't really mean that
A 16 year old posting over 200 times in a matter of weeks almost exclusively cheerleading for Creed could only happen on Basenotes :smiley:
A few that come to my mind are le Male, Paco Rabanne PH, Pure Malt , Kouros (up till most recent offering) and many cheaper alternatives (You can buy any number of bargain bin frags that will last...
I thought about posting it but decided it was enough like Monty Python round here already.
Can you put the Creed queries thread in there while you are at it ?
I'll leave it there - we seem to be getting into a Creed handpressing oils thing so MEGO.
I think we're done here.
In answer to the question about perfume oils being hand made "who creates the materials he then also uses to build perfumes.?" you answered:
" Well what about Creed? They obviously go for a...
Or a slap in the face with a wet herring
Not sure what you are saying here.
What has to be turned into oil and why?
Do you mean this "unique ingredient" used by Creed ?
Leaving aside the significant point that the term "niche" is pretty meaningless it is clear, even to someone as relatively ignorant as myself that the answer to the question as you meant it is No,...
They are certainly destroying the credibility of the MFD forum.
Very nice, especially at that price. The original stuff will never be made again and as many agree the current version has lost something.
Sounds like you really live life on the edge :beer:
Some genuinely practical advice for once :shocked:
I think the JSO idea was mentioned a while back.
Makes sense to me.
"Can people actually smell that MI is more "natural" than the other two"
What makes you think MI is more "natural" than the other two ?
I think the " Is my Creed real " posts are already more or less under control thanks to Ipp's vigilance in moving them to one place.
It isn't a separate forum but I doubt most would post there...
Stick with what you enjoy the smell of and don't pay any attention to the spammers here.
I personally like Bulgari PH but it disappears fast.
why not go and try a good lot at your local...
"If you drive a stock Toyota Corolla and then drive a Ferrari, I would think that most people would be immediately notice the higher quality materials and the huge difference in performance."
Thanks for your response Rum.
I take your point about engaging these people with discussion, but how many times can you respond to being written of as a troll and a hater or to the comment "if you...
Thanks Ipp and Zatrain. I agree the merging for authenticity queries was a step in the right direction though it only really helps with the repetitive rather than the truly nauseous posts.
I have thought abut this too. I believe it's a combination of naivety in some cases and being actively involved in others. (mentioning no names.)
The problem for me is that the trolling and...
these are the originals and worth seeking out:
Just splash or spray versions.
Welcome to Basenotes, where the trolls are the highlight of the proceedings.
Spend enough time in Male Fragrance Discussion and you'll be secretly glad when one turns up believe me...
Thanks for the commonsense and good luck at the hospital.
I was in Boots today and there was nothing I was interested in sampling so I ended up spraying Aramis on my arm (couldn't remember trying it before strangely) A few minutes later I had a weird...
Live long and prosper
I wouldn't dare enter into a fragrance discussion with someone who had actually spent time in Grasse :shocked:
but if you think you have made some significant scientific breakthrough I suggest you...
You've been reading the forum for years and it didn't occur to you that calling yourself MillesimeMe and posting that you had found "the best blend of all time " might mark you as today's CREED ...
Yes there he is thanks.
On reflection though I think it's more deserving of a custard pie.
Where's my Godzilla facepalm picture?
I can't even be bothered posting it.
Are you the same person who posted as "Alejandro-Loves -CREED last week and posted this ? :
" For those who know...
L'Eau D'Issey for a seventeen year old in the summer I think.
Well, I'm sure some of us are basically in agreement with you.
If you want to accustom yourself to individual notes there are ways to do so, check some of the other forums on the site for leads....
Looks like Alejandro has been called in for re-programming
Two pieces of advice to anyone new to Basenotes :
1. Don't invest in the hype.
2. Don't invest in any batch variation foolishness.
We haven't heard the last of this :undecided:
It's too late I've given up.
I thought anyone who had ever kissed a woman wearing lipstick knew what it smelled like :huh:
You'll have to find something else to compare the smell of lipstick to ?
Like what ?:undecided:
What's so complicated about recognising the smell of lipstick ?
... and what is there to feel...
I'm not sure you are allowed to describe the Creed F^nb*ys on Basenotes as f*nb*ys , though you may get away with this one as some of them are banned just now. ..:happy:
Antaeus for me, I find...
I think your list is fine.
In the heat I think Dior Homme Sport would be great on all counts, except I'm not certain about longevity.
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver I also like the idea of in the warmth,...
That gives me another idea for a thread...:beer:
Seem as you have resurrected the thread I'll agree with you, I think Grey Vetiver is an excellent scent.
OK I know it looks bad :embarassed: but it's all in the interest of science...
* But they have to vote for Opium P H or L'Eau D'Issey P H :tongue:
Pity you didn't think to tell them how you'd like the bottle to look while you were at it :smiley:
Can't wait for the " which is the holiest batch " thread.
Thanks André. I really like Cacharel Pour Homme but have only tried the current version.
Seems rather a pointless "battle", a bit like asking which is better out of Motown or heavy metal music. I couldn't say.
Re. more people commenting on Creed fragrances clearly there is a hardcore...
Pretty much my choices.
I would put vintage Kouros just above Rive Gauche and Egoiste just above Pour Homme
I have only tried Jicky in it's current EDT (I assume it was EDT, I didn't look closely at the bottle now that I think about it) and I prefer MDM, partly because the opening seems a little less...
I didn't agree with this but I have tried them both side by side this evening and have now changed my mind.:shocked:
Roadster Sport shares the basic scent and would probably suit someone who...
Water off a duck's back :coolold:
Not sure the previous post (or the thread come to think of it ) deserved that display of reason sense and clear thinking but it was appreciated :smiley:.
Would you mind putting that in English for me ?
Rarely have I seen the nail hit so squarely on the head. :beer:
I more or less agree.
Often a compliment will be a reaction to really noticing something, the response could be "are you wearing aftershave ?" or perhaps if someone is feeling kindly disposed...
Right I'm off up the wooden hills to Bedfordshire but let me leave you with a thought :
Jive : How about you give a rest to the assessing of new and newish members and how they are shaping up as Basenoters ?
Your sarcastic response to this poster just re-inforces his...
Thanks. I'll bear it in mind.
I would start with Burberry London or maybe just Dior Homme Intense (Or Dior Homme, I like it just as much and it's a bit cheaper)
Really though, try them and make up your own mind.
I always test projection by checking if the cat retains consciousness when I walk past him. If he doesn't I know I'm good to go.
I would start at ten with a weak scent like DH personally.
I carry a spare bottle in my lunchbox :smiley:
What do we think?
I personally think it says a lot about ebay that the seller is permitted to do business on the site.
He's certainly got some balls :smiley:
New Creed thread bumper in town.
Just what the forums need :thumbsup:
Don't pay attention to that thread, for Christ's sake :rolleyes:
Fair point. I haven't tried Costume National so I might give it a go, not that I need anything similar to Egoiste when i have the original.
Well I wouldn't want to be guilty of brolitical incorrectness!
