I agree. Tuscan Leather is worth more than the rest of the Private Blend line together.

You can't go wrong with Creeds, buy as many as four thousand will get you and I doubt you'll be unhappy with any of them. If you like more intense rich scents you could do the same with Serge Lutens.
I haven't had any but I bought a couple on Ebay that were bad. One was Creed Zesty Mandarine Pamplemousse and it smelled terrible. It was positively revolting. The other was a Chanel Allure that...
Serge Lutens Arabie and Santal de Mysore, both of these are really fantastic.

People who refused to use fragrance would be considered heretics.
TSA agents in the USA have been caught rifling through and stealing passengers luggage. I wish that was the worst of their crimes and not the least.
Neroli Portofino is the best I've found.
You started with a good one, SL has many others that are very good though so have fun exploring.
Santal de Mysore
It's a great summer scent, one of the best of the lineup. It was one of those that grew on me, I liked it at first but wasn't blown away. It took a few applications to appreciate it.
Corporate monster companies work against the free market because in most cases they can't compete in a free market. It's a losing battle in the long run but that never stops them from trying. One...
That is terrible customer relations on their part. They would have been better off sending the free bottles. Hopefully they pay the price for those tactics.
Preying on human frailty for your own gain can't really be defended. It's not illegal and it happens a lot in this reality but that doesn't mean it's something that can be defended as virtuous. We...
Something is wrong with your sample. People are critical of OS but never for it's performance. It's the most underrated of the brand.
I was totally with you on the OS. I think it's a really good scent, I especially like that it gets better the longer you wear it. The top is good, the middle is very good, and the base is great. ...
I'm with you on this one, it's the only Creed I've ever tried that I didn't like.
I try to limit myself to only what I consider great scents. That means I end up with a between 1-5 from many different houses except for Creed and Serge Lutens. I own nine Creeds and twenty eight...
Creed Millesime Imperial, I was blown away with how good this smelled and had to have a bottle. I've found many since that are as good but none had the impact that first one did.
Are you suggesting that Creed is tampering with their own product? Maybe you mean that one of the employees tampered with it. Just to be clear are you saying that they replaced the juice? Diluted...
Without evidence for the product not being what you ordered it would be most honorable to keep it. You already said they are a reputable retailer so unless you really don't mean that then there is...
The perfume is primarily meant to be an experience for the wearer. Most art such as music, a painting, films, books, etc. are telling a story with a beginning, middle, and end. Others smelling it...
Shipping is only available in Canada at this time..
Bond has a few scents worth owning, but considering their huge lineup it isn't many. I own Eau de New York, Bleecker St., West Side, and So New York. I'm very happy with them but I had to go...
I recently purchased a partial bottle of this scent for a very good price. It's the only one spray scent I own, any more than that and it's cloying and overwhelming. I'm really glad I have it but...
For me it made a good first impression but the more times I wear it the less impressed I am. It has fantastic longevity and projection but there is an off note in the mid and late stages that smells...
After buying a bottle I didn't really wear it much at first but every time I did I liked it more. Of the nine Creed scents I own I consider this one in the top three.
Thank you, I've always wanted to try this but a blind buy at that price is even better.
Cuir Mauresque by Serge Lutens
Choose any random scent. Any suggestions we give you will be our opinion of what's nice and no different from throwing a dart at a wall.
Creed SAs will say anything. The best thing to do is ignore them. Be polite but when their gums stop flapping excuse yourself and walk away. Your life is to short to listen to the small mouth...
If your genetics are so inferior that you are unable to smell smoke or other scents your elimination from the gene pool hardly seems like a loss. I have no interest in sanitizing the world so these...
Not close at all.
They are all nice but the Eau Sauvage EDP is the only one that lasted long enough to be FBW for me.
Menthe Fraiche smells exactly like fresh sweet cold meadow tea that we had when I was a child. It's very long lasting for this type of scent. FBW IMO. I've not tried the other one you mentioned.
I own a bottle of the EDP and it's fantastic. A very heavy vanilla wrapped in a synthetic floral. It doesn't sound that good when described that way but it's fantastic. I love the smell but it's...
I've sampled many of their scents, New York is by far the best in the line. I also own Leau Mixte, it's a good scent of the summer if you like the smell of fresh cut grapefruit.
Are you talking about the Addict EDP in the tall square dark blue bottle?
I don't know, I bought it blind because I found a partial bottle for a good price. I think it's discontinued so I wanted it in my collection. Reading the reviews would indicate that it's not one...
Pay attention to how people react to you. If they recoil when they get within a certain distance of you that should tell you something. The opposite is true as well, if they kinda lean into you...
Serge Lutens Miel De Bois
Bitter End by Roads
Sometimes when making my choice in the morning I find myself stuck in indecision like a squirrel in the middle of a lane with a truck bearing down on it. My hand goes right jerks left back right...
Aventus and Original Santal would be the two that I think are very nice and project more than Green Irish Tweed. Maybe he isn't spraying enough, tell him to double his sprays and see what happens.
Thank you, it's very nice of you to say that. I've become a big fan of Serge Lutens. They aren't as easy to wear as Creed but they are as good in there own way. For price and quality they're my...

Daim Blond by Serge Lutens.
It doesn't matter, the only smell she's interested in is the smell of your money to help her raise her kids. If she doesn't have any then she's only interested in masking the smell of her own...
Less 100$ has to be 80% of the market. You really didn't narrow it down very much.
That's interesting, I sampled most of the line and found them all to be trash. Some were merely average but some like Memoirs of Trespasser and Soft Lawn were nauseating. Goes to show that in the...
If everyone went down this path there are many people who would be out of jobs. Those people have children that would starve. Why does the OP hate children?
Pour Monsieur Concentree by Chanel
Amouage Gold lasts and projects like a beast.
I've blind bought 22 of their line and don't dislike any of them. All of them are good and some are great.
My favorites are
Un Bois Vanille
Fille en Aiguilles...
Dia Man is one of the best they offer. I have no issue with the longevity, it doesn't project like a beast but it's certainly there for a full ten to twelve hours. Buy with confidence, it really is...
Pour Monsieur Concentree
Habit Rouge EDP
I respect the Amouage house and they get a lot of love on basenotes. For myself though I found the older scents were the only ones that were FBW. Gold man, Silver EDP, and Dia man. Lyric got...
This is a terrible idea. You are not the center of attention, if you keep spraying yourself with fragrance people will know and it will come off as weird. It will seem like you're trying to hard, I...
An incredibly lucky blind buy. It does skew a bit feminine but it's one of those that are so beautiful I plan to wear it a lot. I'm not sure what it is about this fragrance but it really blew me...
Serge Lutens Fleur D'Oranger
You are describing Erolfa. The longer I own it the better I like it.
They've become my favorite niche brand. The price on most of their bottles are very reasonable and the scents are very complex and unique. I blind bought this one so I have no idea what I'm getting.
I have four income streams,
Owner, manager of apartment building
You won't say that if you buy a bottle of Amouage Gold Homme or Chanel Anteaus or Tom Ford Tuscan Leather etc. etc.
Fille en Aiguilles is almost a masterpiece IMO.
I finally have Dia on the...
I feel like this thread is a troll thread but I'll answer it as if it's real. Take the cap/wand off and hold the open end against your skin and paint the area you want it on till you have enough. ...
Bleecker Street and Eau de New York
If you want something at the level of Aventus you should check out Original Cologne and Jardin D'Amalfi.
What's the point? There are so many beautiful light, airy, summer scents that there seems no reason to try to make a heavy, dense, winter scent work in the heat. I rotate somewhat according to...
I found the review hilarious and very clever. I don't like the scent but thumbs up to the reviewer.
I agree. It's the best Creed scent I've found. I wear Aventus more because I also only wear it when it's seventy or warmer. It has the best top notes of any scent I've found and the mid and base...
Flash Back by Olfactive Studios has a Rhubarb note and is a great unisex fresh transparent summer fragrance. It almost made my to buy list because of it's uniqueness.
Erolfa, Original Cologne, Neroli Portofino, Leau Froide, Aventus, GIT, etc.
Inside plastic baggy inside padded envelope.
I like them both but only own Neroli Portofino.
I've sampled all of their USA releases including the library collection and the ones labeled for the ladies. IMO three are bottle worthy, Gold Man, Silver EDT, and Dia Man.
The three best on your list are Daim Blond, Cedre, and Bois Vanille. Daim Blond is a fantastic suede, Cedre is an incredible tuberose, and Bois Vanille is the best smoky vanilla scent that I've...
I prefer Eau Sauvage Parfum but it might be a bit much in the summer. It lasts for over twelve hours and has serious projection. The others in this line are nice but Eau Sauvage Cologne and EDT...
I've never found a fragrance that two sprays was to much. You have a very sensitive nose because the rest of us are not smelling you very much with two sprays.
I had my doubts about this one the first time I sampled it. After buying a bottle it really grew on me and I now think it's a fantastic scent in the heat of the summer.
