    Custom scent bottles?

    I's like to get myself a custom fragrance bottle which I'll be able to refill. It's simply classier than using the default bottle that comes with your new Creed. Can anyone advise? Thanks :cheesy:

    It does indeed smell very differently on one's skin.
    I saw some reviewer posts and comments saying that Erolfa could easily be compared to other popular "youth" fragrances. Uh, really? :O
