i feel so ordinary.
hey dullah, does the sprayer on the flacon put out as much juice as their normal sprayers? Or is it more like the leather atomizer sprayers?
have you drenched yourself in it yet?
WELLLL... OBVIOUSLY we have a THREAD-STEALER at Basenotes.com... he's climbin in your topics, he's snatchin your polls up, tryin to steal 'em, so y'all need to hide ya kids, hide ya wife, and hide ya...

this HAS to be the stupidest internet fight in history.
hey man... don't apologize to me. like i said, others preferences don't really affect my psyche (like it does Scentdawg!)
let us know how it grows on you. it did grow on me over the days....
another positive review for Spice & Wood (and the Royal Exclusive line in general), echoing a lot of the exact same points i've been making over the past couple weeks:
I don't "condemn" you for not liking CREED. that would be ridiculous. that would be like chastising someone who doesn't like a particular wine that i like.
I am, however,...
wonder where Ziffy is. he should have taken delivery by now... he must be in spicy heaven. :-)
BTW - another positive review for Spice & Wood (and the Royal Exclusive line in general), echoing...
sorry, i was just conducting an experiment.
you're right, that wasn't a contribution at all.
and the truth is, i like AdP. I am anticipating Essenza quite a bit!
why not let it go indefinitely? the bigger the sample size, the truer the conclusion...
very true. :thumbsup:
I think Acqua di Parma is the most over-hyped, over-priced house in existence.
but.... you didn't walk on by. You purposely took the time to stop in here, tell everyone that CREED is "the most over-priced, over-hyped house in existence", and then say that you're gonna keep...
you sure seem to be sweating it a lot for a guy who's only in on a 1/5 decant!
don't ever let anyone else sway your opinion of a fragrance after you own it, or especially BEFORE you've even...
oh come on! sex, drugs, russians, hotels, and Sarah Palin?!?! doesn't get more controversial than that!!!
(seriously though, no points for creativity?) :embarassed:
Man... we have like 9 threads dedicated to Spice & Woods, and now it's bleeding into this one. More frustrating... I submitted a pretty lengthy review of it, and it's been waiting on approval for...
Look, Dullah is a very knowledgeable guy, but for god's sake don't let ANYONE else's opinion sway yours!!! And as someone who loved Aventus from day one, I can tell you that I also think Spice &...
yup... as always, CREED has a knack for doing that. they are more controversial than Sarah Palin in a dixie-flag bikini holding a glass pipe in a St. Petersburg hotel bathroom with Vladamir Putin on...
you're welcome. there's lots more where that came from.
NICE! mine comes Friday. please post your initial thoughts!
any Tom Ford
Bois de Portugal
to prevent you from buying anything that's crappy enough to be sold in a TJ Maxx or Marshalls.
at the moment, of what i own...
1. Vintage Tabarome
3. Spice and Wood
5. Green Irish Tweed
6. Millesime Imperial
7. Acier Aluminium
8. Green Valley
Okay, the website (www.creedboutique.com) has no phone order line and is different than the NYC Creed Boutique (which has no website).
The website is just an office on 5th street, not open to the...
Malle Vetiver X
does Oger significantly from CREED's many other citrus frags?
Bois de Cedrat
Zeste Mandarin Pamplemousse
am i missing any?
Racism is a huge problem in Europe.
However, just because rape is prevalent in Africa doesn't make it any less abhorrent. Likewise racist attitudes and comments in Europe.
this has been covered quite a bit.
but yes, he's one racist bastard.
haha... just messin with you man.
Bois de Portugal and Royal Delight both will last forever.
While many will disagree with me, I wore Aventus last week and my t-shirt still smelled strong of...
edited for general lack of sense of humor. :thumbsup:
if you don't know what "larceny" means (and clearly you don't), then I'd refrain from using it in sentences. after that, you can work on spelling "disdain" correctly.
uuggghhhh... update, 3 hours later... this thing dries down to a baby powdery feminine mess. that sucks cuz it starts out so good.
comment of the day
can't understand the obsession with Le Male around here. I think it's an average scent at best.
Body Kouros, however, is wonderful.
OKay so my sample decants of these came today from Perfumed Court (except Essenza, which isn't available yet). First impressions:
Colonia (original): the finest lemon top note I've ever smelled....
CREED's Royal Scottish Lavender is pretty cozy.
Le Labo Rose 31 is too.
i see what you're saying about there being more stages and balance in Millesime Imperial. But I don't think you "fix" Aventus by using the MI recipe and simply putting pineapple in for watermelon. ...
i'm currently smitten with CREED Royal Delight.
it's so sweet but in such a good good way...
^^^ all that makes a lot of sense. especially the last paragraph.
and yes, the atomizers are probably 2.5:1 compared to the bottles. you should see the Sublime Vanille poofer, hardly anything...
hahaha... easy tiger!!! we got a live one here!
I think it's an interesting question. Completely different than just going out, as you said. At the poker table, it's usually a bunch of other...
I'd wear CREED Cuir de Russie... the fragrance equivalent of "F*CK OFF!".
another cologne drop...
Ludacris on Missy Elliott's "Gossip Folk":
"All around the world on the microphone
Leaving the booth smelling like Burberry cologne"
DULLAH, you clearly are aware of industry rule #4,080. As well as phony rappers, who do not write or excite.
your taste and experience in rap is almost identical to mine. mad props.
i have nothing against DULLAH. he's one of my favorite people on here.
but you will notice that MANY people here are shocked at the amount of fragrance he puts on. Not just me. and he's far...
great suggestion. Givenchy Blue Label is awesome.
what's your take on guys who fill a room with their cologne? have no problem with it?
No, I was deadly serious about that. At the same time, I did specifically say "it's your world, do what you want".
but I'm not the only person who thinks 25 sprays of Millesime Imperial is...
listen Rick, if you want to go on a discount website and buy Bond 9, go do just that. and if you want to make the argument that it's comparable to GIT, then go create a thread entitled "Everyone Who...
good to see you have a sense of humor about things.
Sentence: When Marcy overslept and didn’t have time to shower for fear of missing her bus she would perfumigate. She never understood why she could not...
it seems there are many "that men" on this site, unfortunately.
and this is the stigma you bring to us normal wearers. THANKS!
easy Ricky... the Hyundai Sonata is a good car. has a great warranty, and gets a 5-star crash rating. it will get you from point a to point b just like an S-class will.
but the build quality,...
telling someone who loves GIT to go to Bond 9 is like telling a Mercedes S-class driver that they have to check out the new Hyundai Sonata.
by the way, can someone else try going to the Acqua di Parma corporate website and let me know if they are getting a malware security warning? I've tried it in both Safari and Chrome and get the...
Yeah I understand that, I just would have thought pineapple would be a more universally accepted/liked note. unlike leather or violet or cyphre or other controversial notes.
the rest of your...
dang... why do people talk about pineapple like it's a bad thing? why is it such a hated note? i think it's awesome, and somewhat unique in the industry.
and for those who think Kanye can't rap, check this freestyle:
all i gotta say is quiet dog bite hard:
SOTD: CREED Citrus Bigarrade
SOTE: CREED Windsor
for what it's worth, i have a graduate degree in biochemistry and work in the medical field.
now you mentioned sweat and that is different. obviously sweat and your body temperature will...
isn't that a ladies perfume?
the worst is "my body chemistry has changed". clearly someone who believes this hasn't had one class in biology or probably science in general. it is complete crap of a theory.
yea i wanted to start with the basics and go into the blue meds a little later. thanks for your input tho
i want to get my first one. wanted to know what the consensus is around here.
do you think AdP are quality frags? worth the price?
^ yea i've heard him drop Frederic Malle in a song before. but he is absolutely obsessed with Christian Dior in his songs (including one named "Christian Dior"), so he probably wears that too.
you should stop equivocating and mincing words, and just straight up tell us how you feel about him.
party animal i was, but now I chill at home. all i do is write, rhyme, eat, drink, sh*t, and cologne. :)
CREED Original Santal
hahaha... please tell me you were referencing Tribe's "Show Business" with that.
yes, Kanye has insane amounts of talent, along with the maturity of a 9-year old. It's sad that someone who can...

"why every ghetto b-tch gotta smell like Love Spell?
or that goddamn cucumber bath and body works?
I can still smell the sweat, the sh-t hardly works.
what about Cool...
Agreed. and i never ever ever want to be "that guy".
Now, I will re-apply, and that's different. Especially with some CREEDs and their shorter longevity. For example, I only need two sprays...
Don't take this the wrong way, but your critique about how "weak" Spice and Wood is just took a huge credibility hit!
Apparently, your nose is on the brink of failure. I have Selection Verte, and...
i was shocked a couple weeks ago when i finally got to try this after all the hype. definitely an offensive scent. but not just that, it's an insult. a loud, dense and blunt assault on one's...
of the ones I've smelled (and own)
1. Vintage Tabarome
3. Fueille Verte
4. Spice and Wood
5. Cuir de Russie
okay, i'll keep going...
CREED Green Irish Tweed
hahaha... i was waiting for it!
somehow i think Creed will be just fine. In contrast, I think they are in the midst of a remarkable streak of creativity and artistic inspiration, after a good...
that's cool. i think the heart of our difference here is the unisex-nature of this fragrance. thats why you see it as "cold, aloof, etc". i can see your point, but that is a trait i love. i think...
BTW - thanks for this. i look forward to having Frasier flashbacks everytime I put this on!
I would STRONGLY suggest you smell it and form your own opinion before taking anyone else's.
i see many of your points, DULLAH.... but it seems you come to conclusions very fast.
you were brutal on Aventus, which turned out to be a very popular BN favorite.
might you take a bit more...
haha... i knew you would hate this, dullah. Though much like Aventus, which you also hated, you are dead-wrong about this amazing-smelling fragrance!
"I think lovers of Epicea will really like...
YSL - Rive Gauche
Creed - Acier Aluminium
Tom Ford - Tuscan Leather
perhaps that's why that one review said that Creed is going "Hermes" on us. Which is ridiculous. Voyage is weak crap. This packs quite a punch. that review likening its "punch" to Cuir de Russie...
Got a sample recently and thought I would share my opinion.
After application, there is an immediate blast of pepper and sense of “dryness”. This dryness is certainly the wood, but it’s not...
