Price will be north of £200, another nice eye gouger from Greed.
I can get a 250ml falcon for £300.

They lair with a straight face. Interlude Man has been reformulated, they start off the same but the new version lacks the sweetness the original has late in the dry down. These findings are after...
L'Air du Desert Marocain by Tauer 7
Aqua Vitae Forte by Maison Francis Kurkdjian 6
Acqua di Giò Profumo by Giorgio Armani 4
Green Irish Tweed by Creed 4
Oud Ispahan by Christian Dior...
Bleu is the "one fragrance" like the Rolex Submariner is the one watch.
All time classic that will never go out of fashion.
Where's Ironmics at? I want to know if he/she/it still thinks BDP is still the best scent ever!?
Also why is a 2005 thread still active when some threads for 2013 are archived in Huddler?
They are different but have similarities. With Dior Homme Eau its only the base that smells similar to Fierce, the top is totally different.
Did 1 spray at the mall today of ADP leather. Weird thing is, it smells totally different to when I first smelt it over a year ago. Originally I got a lot more citrus and leather note was...
LDDM is my most unique yet enjoyable fragrance I own, I don't know of anything else like it.
4/5 sprays daily should last you close to a year.
I've a bottle of Millésime Impérial 120ml and I've done over 50 wears and I'm down to just under half bottle. But Creed sprayers dispenses a lot...
I didn't like it much, each to their own.
Nothing for me. I'm a man of simple means and already own what I really want. I'm only still sampling to past the time.
To be honest if money was no object I don't think I'll be on this...
Maison Francis Kurkdjian
Aqua Vitae Forte - Eau De Parfum 70ml
Brand new and sealed, RRP £165
£110 delivered or £105 collection (London)
Dior Homme performance is lacking on me too. I even had a vintage bottle that wasn't much better.
Aqua Vitae Forte
Not keen on this, its a bit too sweet for me. APOM is better.
The top has very strong mandarin note with too much sweetness, reminds me of a Sunny Delight drink, with a light orange blossom in the...
Allbeauty have put the price up on all their Creed products.
Buy Creed from Nose.fr instead.
If not gone off they should smell the same.
MI is a citrus based scent and they are normally the first to go bad. I have a bottle of L'Eau D'Issey from 2000 and that's gone off, the top notes...
Creeds don't come sealed, if stored well the fragrance "should" be fine.
*This comment is not intended to give buying advice. Before buying, do your own research. The accuracy of any information...
Today was use up the cheapies I don't like day.
6 shots of CH Men by Carolina Herrera in morning...
Don't think anyone know the answer to this yet, until store has opened.
Does the Creed boutiques in NY store stock all the rare Creeds?
This is nothing better than another Aventus thread.
I don't find NP nice at all. All I get is the Dax wax, old skool barber shop vibe.
I highly doubt that. For one the available of Mayfair seems to be quite limited. If this is only available at Creed stores the price point would be quite prohibitive to most.
Decant will be the...
As I own them all but I don't love them all (I like saying I own it all, makes myself sound more important)
I use to very like DH but I fallen over of favour with DH. I never reach for it and...
Totally understand the mix up, they have a similar vibe.
When I first got in fragrances, I couldn't tell the difference between SMW, GIT and MI.
But after over a year of sniffing various...
I always see people asking to buy empty bottles. Being a flacon, you can easily buy one of the numerous Aventus clones and fill up the flacon.
Blind buy, I'm a sucker for hype

Totally subjective. How long does it take you to earn $255, less than a days works or a few weeks?
I love Ambre Nuit in fact its up in my top 5. But as I posted (#17) I sent the fragrance back to Dior. I'll see what they say. If the response from them isn't positive I'll have to track down a...
I can deal with reformulation but when the tester bottles are different to the actual product you purchase, its grinds my gears. I tested Ambre Nuit on skin and paper several times and was satisfied...
I had to send a compliant email about my bottle of 2015 Dior Ambre Nuit. Dior asked me to post it back them to have it examined. Paying this much for something that only last about 1 hours is not...
You going to send this back. Someone has scribbled over the box and there is about 10ml missing.
The latest version of Mont blanc Individuel apparently doesn't perform that well. I've an older bottle and performance is very good.
I also voted Mugler Cologne but I don't find it the nicest smelling from that list.
A 4oz bottle of Royal Mayfair is $475.00... and people are lapping it up. There is no reason this bottle cost $175 more than the standard Creeds... its because they can.
I personally think this is bad for the brands image. This and the launch of a scent for a teenage girls, Princess Oud? Sounds like a Paris Hilton fragrance. No and no.
Business 101, its better to sell a lot of something cheap than a few of something expensive.
If Creed wanted to be a luxury brand then, yes good news. They need to control their supply chain to ban grey imports and only allow authorised sellers.
Then they can be up there with the likes...
Showing as instock online
Thanks, not going to bother picking up a 2005 I found then.
Is the vintage a lot better than the 2005 version. How's the 2005 compare to the current version?
I couldn't give 2 spritz of Leather Oud about the Royal family, they are mainly there for you tourist.
Also don't care about the Creed history or marketing. I'm only interested in the smell, but...
Thanks for the informative and interesting reply. I plan to at some point buy loads of different scented ingredients just to learn their smell.
What has this generic response got to do with the OP question?
I've a lifetime supply (5mls) of this cow dung and I've worn it twice but I think my nose is a college drop out. This stuff is the shit, literally.
OT I hate all this you nose isn't mature talk. ...
Own both and happy to have them in my collection...jk, that's a spam bot response.
DHP is a projection monster but doesn't have the same sexy vibe as DHI. DHP is much more mature and dark. I...
Nothing; nothing smells good enough.
It's not available. I placed an order with them and they told me its not instock till August.
Is this fragrance very light? I did one test spray last weekend and I could hardly smell it.
If I was to blind test Aventus with Lomani I wouldn't be about to tell them apart.
But its not that I don't like Aventus, I get bored of fragrances quickly. I maybe wear Aventus once a month, if...
Interlude is great, one of the most distinctive fragrances ever imo.
I remember when this first got released the general consensus wasn't too positive.
I don't remember what this smells...
Clive Christian, tag line "The World’s Most Expensive Perfume".
So its not the world's best just most expensive... Only suckers buy his fragrances, his whole marketing pampers to the pompous.
Does Ambra Aurea smell like Ambre Nuit? Because the projection of Ambre Nuit (2015 bottle) is none existent, might as well not be wearing anything.
Not a bad looking $475 bottle
I don't mean to sound patronising, but have you had experience with these kind of animalic fragrances before?
Over spray this in hot weather and prepare to get some nasty looks.
Cuir Cannage is like a Leather Oud light. I get the same dirty stink but much more wearable.
Because it stinks, its civet and unrine to my nose.
I like Oud Ispahan but not sure if its full bottle worthy (fbw)
You can't buy it online anywhere, only other option is eBay. I never paid full retail and I had to bite the bullet. But I highly recommend sampling this first, this is the most polarising fragrance...
The incense only comes in after 4 hours for me. The top is very soft and there is virtually no mid, so much so I though the scent died.
Bleu de chanel
Wearing this today because I got it for cheap. But this just a clone of BDC.
Coke must of got reformulated. Maybe you had the vintage stuff.
For me its the chemical smell I get from TL that reminds me of coke. I don't know how to describe the smell.
They say it smells like cocaine (ex-user) because it does. I don't get any leather just cocaine then a smoky raspberry.
I like cocaine, so I vote Tuscan Leather.
Never smell Aventus on anyone, apart from once on a SA in the Creed department. But in general I never smell scents on anyone.
Haha... Creed and Montale couldn't be more different.
This stuff is no good. Smells a little feminine and old fashioned.
This is not released till august.
Ambre Nuit is the really the only one I like. Oud Ispahan is also good but I don't think its fbw.
How are finding the performance? I got a 2015 bottle and the performance is lacking. The...

Mine is brownish in colour, I know the ones older than mine are green.
The performance of mine is below average. I'm not a fan of it, so don't really care.
Good call, you dislike it, Creed must vault it asap. Any other fragrances that we should discontinue for you sir?
You're a brave man, one of the most unsafe and unpleasant smell I've ever had the misfortune of smelling.
Just the AA1 code is need to check the date. And you are correct it from October 2011, congratulations.
Where did you buy it from? I wouldn't mind some vintage juice myself.
Some of the reviews says this is pretty good and I almost blind bought it myself. But my disappointment with Nuit d'Issey left a bitter taste in my mouth. Its also supposed to be similar if not the...
How you finding l'air du marocain?
At least fragrance boxes are small. My shoe boxes have taken over a whole room.
Even Knize Sec?
There aren't many UK sellers. And the one that do sell them don't offer attractive prices (often only slightly cheaper than from a discount retailer) or sell items that just aren't popular.
The stink level has been toned down as well cloves. It much more wearable now. It last at least 6 hours plus on me.
Thats almost the same price as the Dior Boutiques, I recently picked up a 120ml bottle for £165 (230 Euros) :( Plus I really had to shake the SA down for a free Dior Privee miniature sample. At...
It's not available online, would mean travelling to France.
You can't and God knows I tried. I'm 1/10 Jewish so don't like to pay anything full retail. But I had to for Collection Privee and its the most expensive fragrance I've purchased on a per ml basis.
You can find Aventus for a lot cheaper than that if order from France.
If you mean backup bottle? Then none.
If you mean a repurchase after finishing the initial bottle? Then none, I have never finished a bottle... yet.
I avoid using Paypal for international payment as their exchange sucks.
Yeah its a good saving from the RRP but its still 475 bucks on something I wouldn't wear much. I going to sample it again this weekend, to see how I feel about it.
Also for Aventus I'm bored of...
But you said you already have the non-magnetic cap bottle? Whats the last 4 digits of your batch number out of curiosity?
I've found it for $475 and I've been considering buying it too and I don't even like spice and wood :huh:
Go to a black-out room and shine a powerful torch throught the bottle.
If it a good price than what's the problem. For me it cost almost £100 so not such a good deal.
So you been wearing the reformulated version? Where do you find time to wear all these fragrances?
The reformulation happened around late 2013 and they new version is very weak compared to the...
That is crazy, seeing as Frederic Malle website offers free samples (3.5ml atomisers) you just pay for postage.
Glad you able to get such great performance out of it. I find it just ok, 6 out...
It's either Silver mountain water or Erolfa.
Neither are signature worthy imo but if I was forced to pick one at gunpoint and my family held hostage I would begrudgingly mumble Original Vetiver
That's an all star lineup, you have good taste.
Xerjoff a bit too expensive for signature wear
I find that hard to believe. Don't you blind buy a lot of fragrances based on notes. Owning that many bottle you must fall out of love with some, as your taste change. Your true 5 stars are the one...
Sand Aoud by Mancera... wow... this stuff stinks! I said to the SA this stuff doesn't smell good, He replied "yeah its not my favorite either". I sniffed my hand again and said " I need to wash...
