better than TV?
I normally go with the smaller size.. wear it, see how long I enjoy it (which seems to vary from frag to frag) and if it's something that I still "want" to use when i'm out, I re-stock with the...
So. bought a bottle of this and got it in the mail today. I'm not a expert on Creed or their fakes, but the lot number matches the bottle and the sticker on the bottom of the box, however, the...
I love Original Vetiver it was my first niche bottle.
+1 Terre d'Hermès
Ordered it from Amazon, and after so much research on the fakes, I was able to verify the lot number on the bottle and the box, business card was raised, all was good - total win and it smells...
I have Tom Ford and Creed... I sware ..Creed lasts 12+ hours on me.
Try theperfumedcourt.com or luckyscent.com :)
Got a sample of this today, it's my next purchase for sure!
Maybe it's the area. I was in Saks this past weekend and was standing at the Creed Counter (right in front of all other counters as you walk into the whole dept store) and ran into someone wanting to...
Can't WAIT to get this! Used it so much when I was young, young, young. lol
I'd like to open up this post again because I am looking for the same thing, however, not on a small budget. Anyone have any other suggestions?
Well, from the beginning I was saying that I could get bottles of creed for that price. Aventus is a higher price all across the board. I don't know how this post was changed into prices of Creed,...
If you look at the amazon link you will see a 4oz going for $120 NON tester....
SO not true.
Listen, my POINT is.. although I enjoy creed, I personally don't want a collection of cologne where anyone can buy bottles from places like Walgreens and Amazon. Period.
I'm sorry! 1oz.Point still stands. $120 ish for 4oz is still out there.
lol. I have heard a lot of great stuff about GIT.. now I want a bottle of that.. geeze.
I must stay away from both of these, lol
eeeek really? bummer. I was planning a trip to saks this weekend to sample TV..
Indeed it is. Bought me a bottle this morning when I called them.
Amazon, Scent Monkey, Ebay, and others offer this for as low as $75 bucks for 2.5oz and $120 or so for a 4.5oz.. it's getting too mainstream. I have not even been in the game enough to have a heavy...
Random question.. if I have Original Vetiver.. would I need to try GIT? I have never sampled it.. do they smell similar?
Nice to know!
I think my major problem with Aventus is.. it's getting major mainstream. I am looking for hard to come by scents. Before you know it, Aventus will be another Cool Water or Drakkar and.. not sure I...
Kinda feeling blah today. I had e-mailed The Perfumed Court about my huge sample order and they responded very nicely I may add. Sounds like a pretty good company.
Made me smile with her...
It's a problem when you compare price/cost to the actual quality of the product; any product. Is this the case with frags? Obviously Parfume VS Toilette but ... Would I get the same...
Good advice, and that's my problem. I think I'll wait on that one. I have about 30/40 samples I bought coming too.. so I have a lot of sniffing and wearing to do in the next few months lol
I called them today to ask about a few things and she asked me if I wanted to be put on the mailing list for Pure Coffee, so I am sure it will be in line, or next to be re-released.
That's all I hope for. I REALLY love both of these on different levels. Holding out for Aventus, might do a split on that one. It's a good scent, but.. not crazy about it like these two.
...and feeling sick to my stomach, lol.
Amazon order for a 4oz bottle's of Original Santal and Original Vetiver.. :shocked:
Well hmm.. ok.. so I guess I'm sorry? .. for even asking where to find this on June 28th. Thought this site was to help, inform, and share.. I guess it was just a statement for everyone else that...
Only if we knew where to buy it! *hint, hint* lol
I think 98% of those here do.. so I am starting to think maybe I don't know what "quality" is or something.. lol
where? where? really want this!!
It's my sample today.. my god. I have read all of the great reviews on this frag.. but I just.. don't like it. I am trying to figure out what it is that I don't like.. and I'm having a hard time...
It's now, my new obsession lol
Did you order it from a place you have ordered before? sure it's good juice?
Good point Bigsly. Personally when I am looking for a gem, I want projection and longer lasting.
Sounds like some jo malone scents, I would check them out - you can get some samples at Saks if you have one around.
Congrats!.. would love to try one of these after reading the reviews.. my number is... 179!
I'm not EXACTLY sure.. What I do is click on Wardrobe on the top, and go to add a frag.. once you select it, you will see reviews and info about it.
Just bought this myself - great scent!
I would agree with this, and I am still in those learning stages at 32. I wish I were learning at your age. At 16 I was buying frags left and right, however, they were the old standards, nothing...
Doubt I will be able to make it, however, I have been to vegas and stayed at 3 hotels on the strip. Based on what I have experienced, I will never stay at Treasure Island or MGM when I return. Rooms...
I might be stepping in here with little to no knowledge but to MY understanding, as we progress into this venture and "train our nose" we will begin to "understand" these stages, and would be more...
Just ordered a .2ml samples from Lucky after reading posts about this one on Basenotes. I can't wait!
understand all of these replies, thank you very much. Do you heavy parfumers think that your nose is trained so well that you notice the small things sometimes too much?? From what I understand, it's...
Is that for men?
I don't know.. but sounds masculine! lol
Well, I have picked the Creed's I want to purchase. I have researched the topic of Creed, Where to buy, and the batch issues until I have given myself a headache.
With this being my first...
yes, very green :) lovely bottle I think!
Sad... but very well said, lol :)
Thanks for your reply. I am in the same boat I guess. New to all of this.. always loved cologne and that's why I have my collection, however, it's been pretty cheap stuff.. ($50-$100) a bottle.. and...
I have spent hours and hours searching this site, reading reviews, etc and I am loving it! :) THANK YOU BASENOTES! One thing I am running into when reading about various frags.. many have said things...
Thanks! I'll look into them :)
Thanks! I'll look into them :)
wait! wait! lol.. my link is
I don't know much about frags yet, so would hate to recommend something wrong. I would like to participate though! :)
whoops -sorry! lol
Any thoughts on these? Looked them up based on the Royal Leather coming out, but also saw some others that sound nice.
Maybe someone has done this in the past.. but I think it would be cool (and helpful) if we all could recommend frags to others based on their current likes (or wardrobes)
I would have gave you my bottle for free.
These sound REALLY nice.. however, I can't seem to find any samples on theperfumedcourt.. any idea where I can get some?
I like the idea of splits, but I want the bottle Wahhhhhh!
Interesting, I will check them out - thanks! :)
Thanks, I will check out the others!
lol thanks cacio. I'm new here, so just trying to get a idea and figure out what types I need to look for in samples.. trying to find a signature scent in the process of adding to my collection ;)
Mom used to wear Charlie all the time,and when I was younger used to wear a cologne called Elvis and another called That Man.. good memories.
Could you guys give me some examples (so I can purchase samples) of some scents that have a really strange unique scent. Something that will make people come closer to check it out, not push them...
ok, thanks guys.
Thanks. Wouldn't a full retail bottle be better than grey market though?
Have you bought a reg priced bottle ($285) from a Dept Store to compare? are they the same?
Have you bought a expensive bottle and had the privilege of comparing the two?
Speaking with a rep at Saks here locally, they are on S42B... any idea if these are good?
I am trying to find the same thing, however I am scared to make my first purchase of Creed online, as I don't want a fake or watered down..
Couldn't find the other post but I am wondering if anyone has compared ScentMonkey or FragranceNet to a bought bottle from Saks or Creed Outlet.. same results/juice?
Palm, I stand corrected. Thanks. Have you compared a Saks or Neiman bought bottle of Creed with FragranceNet?Same Results?
I remember calling a Saks Creed Rep and asking her if they price match if I found a cheaper price online and she told me (have no clue if she is actually trained to say this or not..) that Saks,...
That is a steal! Have you bought from Monkey? Good Juice?
Seems too good to be true, but... is it? anyone ever bought from these guys?
Thanks guys for all the advise! I got a bunch of Creed samples at Saks, so I am starting to wear them tomorrow..one a day, lol. I also ordered about $100 worth of samples from Lucky, so I will update...
Thanks for the list Jack. I didn't find most of those on Luckyscent and Creed doesn't seem to have any samples available either.. so I am going to go to saks and try many of them. I did order quite a...
Thanks for viewing. I have always been a fan of fragrance, and have recently been buying from Saks Fifth because I was under the impression that they had fragrances that other mainstream dept stores...
