I like Vert Dr Bois but I find the pepper note can be quite strong and annoying.
I've only purchased 3 times in store.
Love this one.
But don't like the Forte version at all. Bug spray opening, drying down to something too floral.
Pre 2014 no, post 2014 yes. But I personally never reapply, if its gone, its gone.
Yep, tried this a while back. Big disappointment, just a very feminine fruity fragrance.
AA isn't that versatile. I've a bottle and I hardly ever wear it.

I'm also a UZ fanatic. But not keen on Kryptomint, don't like mint. Plus if its weaker than UZ its a past for sure, as UZ already isn't that strong.
I noticed that too, but shouldn't it be 1760?
I hope these more expensive smaller bottles still come with the trademark loose caps, not that magnetic rubbish.
Smaller bottle sizes for more money. I love it Greed.
Its called Inflation.
As long as you have a no international fee card.
Isn't a Debit card still just a Visa or Mastercard? But with just pre-paid funds.
Which store? Also I would take the SA information with a pinch of salt.
I've never seen this in any UK department stores, even when it wasn't discontinued.
Should they be selling returned item as new. Ever fragrance I've purchased from a retailer has been factory sealed.
Yes, I didn't like it. But I don't dislike it either.
Boozy opening then joined by something that smells like dried dates/prunes. As it drys down I get a spicy accord appearing, that reminds me...
A fake Armaf? Is it worth the effort for such a cheap niche product.
That would put me right off. Just look at what's happened with Omega and their tacky 007 editions
Thats a good deal.
2 sprays of Interlude Man... I messed up, should of gone with just the 1. It's still going strong 12 hours later.
Saw this on eBay but didn't know it was a BN user. I would of bought it off you.
Nio didn't wow me, but it's probably best in class for this genre. There is some thing quite sharp/harsh in the first hour that I didn't particularly enjoy. Nevertheless I liked it overall but not...
LADDM, which I haven't worn in a while.
Happy Friday everyone.
Forum works perfectly fine on Tapatalk.
Not only does it smell feminine. It's also worn by a lot women.
I've worn Interlude to the gym before, just the normal 1 spray to the chest. Love how the heat when working out makes it transitions through the stages. Like experiencing 4 seasons in 1 day.
Luton airport...seriously doubt the selection would be ample. You would get more choice down the local Tesco.
Most mainstream out of all the Creeds. Could past for any designer fragrance. I personally would never have it my collection.
But glad you like it,
Time for me to give up, I dislike all the above.
My choice would be:
Will be the first and last date.
It's clearly an issue with olfactory fatigue.
The problem is once they go up they stay up, even if the pound recovers.
I presume you've the new design (50ml bottle). As you refer to it as EDP and not Extreme.
The newest release is much weaker. But some people don't think reformation is a real thing... So take...

CK encounter has shockingly bad performance. Icing on the cake was it smells very synthetic.
I post fragrances on the regular, at least 20 in past 6 months. Never had one go missing *touch wood*
Interesting, I get a lemon woody sweetness. As it dries down its becomes a more balsamic saffron. No medicinal note at all.
Nothing special, people here seem to eat it to up tho.
Looks fake to me. The fonts are off and imperfections of the bottle. The cap is also a massive giveaway. The Tom Ford engraving should be pin sharp and gold plate fits flush with no massive gaps as...
Humidity plays a massive part. Dry air/ air conditions rooms kill projection dead.
So it might not be it be your fault. But try spraying on hair and clothes.
Ah you're correct, my apologies had too much of that eggnog, got it mixed up with Absolute Pour Le Soir.
You'll in for a shock if you hope APLM will be like Petit Matin.
Petit is fresh and bright. APLM is animalic and dirty.
+1, if you want YouTube drama, search for Vitaly.
If someone offered you a sponsorship deal, wouldn't you take it?
Armani Myrrhe Impériale, Dior Cologne Royale & Amber Absolute. Each with about 40 wears.
I must be a novice as I not smelt most of the fragrances listed. I didn't start getting into fragrances until post 2010. I don't know the difference between Polo or Drakkar Noir, these just comes...
I own Oud and that's because I managed to get a bottle for under £85. I only initial smelt it once but at that price I knew I could move it on for more than what I paid.
I don't think it deserves...
No, sprayers are not removable.
Just been to the gym, 2 shots of Nasomatto Pardon and 1 shot of pre-work out, getting all sorts of gains. Loving the smell of Pardon on warm skin, gives me motivation.
Don't listen to haters,...
I don't get any oud at all with Armani Oud Royal, just saffron and its very light and airy scent. I remember it being stronger, has this reformulated?

Yes, worth it. You can sell it on for a lot more. Anything that can double your money is a no brainer. Doesn't matter what it smells like, as long as it smells green.
Bottle on the right is a few shades darker, but that could also be due to age.
All said, Dior's 3 year reformulation cycle is upon us. So anyone liking this, should stock up now.
23 different fragrances worn in September

By the Fireplace
If its an office is air conditioned, like mine is then its fine. I never smell any fragrances in the office as nothing projects.
I do 1 spray under my shirt no problems.
No doubt, they are going back to be exterminated. Someone is bound to pick them back out of the trash compactor and make a nice profit.
Nice to read through the old post. Seeing different fragrances mentioned instead of the usual predictable ones.
Thanks for the feedback mikesc, goes to show everyones nose is different.
The 2015 batch was very good, very strong and had a very salty dry down. 2015 was a good year for Creed.
Its been almost 24 hours since I did that sample spray on my hand and I can still smell it, this is even after washing it.
To give it some credit the late drydown (12 hours later) is nice. Mainly...
Its available in the UK now, seen it in John Lewis. They also have it in the new pre-filled atomsier (£300)
I’m big Tuscan leather fan but this is a disappoint. It’s an exact copy of Atelier...
Easy answer, its just not a crowd pleaser and just doesn't have that mainstream appeal. Its a smell that is quite polarizing and wouldn't be out of place in the Dior Privee line.
I've a 2015...
I would just pack a 50ml bottle. I took 50ml of Grey Vetiver when I went to Japan for 2 weeks. I think I used over a quarter of the bottle.
But my thinking is, if I wanted another fragrance I...
I tried this today, massive thumbs down.
If you was to blind smell this, you would think it was the new Versace fragrance. Smells totally generic and could be any entry level designer fragrance. ...
Sauvage (synthetic mess)
Anything from celebs, Beckham, Bieber, Britney... Jhericurls don't roll like that.
Royal Oud title is very misleading, there isn't any oud smell.
If TL is too strong wouldn't it make more sense to just spray less of TL then buy a watered down version.
Can't help but think that Estee Lauder is currently trying to milk it with all these...
Its ok, nothing special.
The discussion got too real.
Is this another FragranceNet fake?
Same for me, I go at least 8 with SMW and MI. And I could easily do more without choking anyone out. I work in an air conditioned office and that seems to stop any projection of fragrances.
Grey Vetiver, no competition.
179... Thats like 6 a day. So you layered 2 at a time? Was this a purge or a race.
That time of the month already... 22 fragrance worn this month.
Oud Wood by Tom Ford
When I was wearing one time, my gran told me I smelled very sexy.
If you've an 8-pack like myself, the stomach is good place as the ridges and cuts helps hold the scent.
Shots fired, you my man is now my favourite poster on BN.
Why would you bind buy a female fragrance?
I don't think it was a personal attack. Was more stating an observation. From the outside looking in, you seem besotted with Jeremy.
He might be the seconding coming of christ to you but...
Not much ever happens in Fragcom... we'll take anything we can get.
But when all is said and done. Regardless if Jeremy has purchased subs or sponsored by YSL, Dave has done himself no favours.
Pre 2014 version 3 sprays and you're good. Post 2014, you can easily do 6+.
I've been hearing the same thing as I was thinking of buying a bottle last week.
Jeremy did have a brief stint as a singer and is a professional model, so knows how to look good in front of a camera. Jeremy is trying to promote a lifestyle, good looks, woman and money. Thats why...
Oud Wood easy, it has no projection. Others will not smell it, so it wouldn't offend anyone.
Wow, you must be a massive fan.
I don't care for Jeremy's videos at all. They're only aimed at people who are after female compliments. But at least Jeremy knows his target audience and can be...
Cologne royale is nice but its very weak, almost zero projection. Dior Homme Cologne has better performance.
Dior cologne royale, is called COLOGNE. Which is suppose to be EDP concentration but performs like a cologne.
Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I was doing some research on fake Tom Fords and found this thread.
Anyway, that Oud Wood is fake as hell, Jowan and Hednic needs their eyes tested.
No worries, normally its like pulling teeth.
Not to my taste, nasty honey/milk mix.
Should be called Bois de tergent!!

Bond no.9 New Hamptons
I read loads of bad reviews about their new water down, now favoured tap water. Would of like to have tried some of their fragrances but its game over for them now.
A pictures is worth a thousand words, so here it is
Testers are made using higher quality juice, so doubt they would let you replace it with the cheaper retail version.
I don't care for this at all.
And the new 75ml bottles are reformulated and not as strong.
Super human and amazing passion for fragrances. Own over 2,000 fragrances, yet still have time to smell every fragrance currently on sale to report back on your findings. You're a credit to BN.
