How much was this lady charging per hour again?
HIMALAYAN salt, no less which, combined with the seals factor, translates into a miracle event compared to which the birth of Moses, Jesus and Muhammad are just minor stains on a Creed-determined...
From the 1700's? There are meritorious rumors according to which REL was created WAY before that, as Egyptian mummies used to be embalmed in it.
I like both Tribute and Homage quite a bit. In some ways I enjoy Homage more, but Tribute, lightly applied, is more easily wearable by a man. I am wearing both, they are my to go scents. I have in...
Now this was cruel.
There is a Geneva Convention, you know!
Do svidaniya ! :thumbsup:
What fragrance would you recommend to this highly esteemed, fashionable world leader?
So which one is it? Did Creed skimp for a while in what regards adding $1 worth of a pleasant aromachemical to some of their $XXX M.I. bottles? Or did the Royal Watermelon crop of 2010 constitute the...
I INVENTED this thing. They are not going to get away with this.
You captured my interest. Are these fragrances close to 100% essential oils-based?
It would be nice to find something in the style of Santa Novella colognes or Citrus Bigarrade or Bois de Cedrat,...
I find Homage, applied very sparingly, works great in summertime.
We should always apply "don't do unto others what you don't want others to do unto you".
It WAS tempting to me to think "so what, my . . . is so much better than what other guys are...
Yes... ( :
Some people in the world are concerned about where the next plate of rice is going to come from, and whether their children are going to starve yet another day with anything to put in...
I have not placed any order but I feel now, reading all these wondrously emotional posts, that I should be sent a free Cadillac by the culpable vendor. A free car-fridge filled with champagne and...
Schilling, you're too kind. Yet, that video is astonishingly funny (and complex!! for three minutes) so I couldn't pass the opportunity.
Kudos to the Royal House of CREED for knowing how to inspire a matchless amount of confidence in the quality, trustworthiness and consistency of the Exclusive Royal Concoctions.

Was aiming for that, thanks.
When? With Amouage Gold.
Or, in music, here:
My apologies for the lack of clarity. The hint regarded the presence of an ubiquitous, cheap house note in most Millesime's. (That is not always the case with either the "exclusives" or with the...
I can speak only for myself, but I've read many of your reviews and I emphatically cannot afford to ignore your posts. I find not one modicum of arrogance in your awareness of your own expertise....
Well, to begin with, if you're overwhelmed by some generic housenote consisting mostly of synthetic ambergris, then you can be positive that that vial contains.... oops, sorry.
My experience with Clive Christian: at some point I owned a whole bottle of No. 1 and I got tired of it, it seemed heavy somehow and luxurious without style, if that makes sense, so I sold the...
Wonderful. Now if we just made an extra effort, we might be able to take this thought to its ultimate logical consequence...
In musical terms: "Yeaaah! The boring semi-bitter stuffed eggheads who pushed Beethoven and Brahms down our throats were finally excommunicated.... now we can be ourselves and pat each other on the...
Taj Mahal and Château de Versailles.
How is Bois de Cedrat these days? Any noticeable changes in the formula? It used to be a heat-appropriate, pretty nice, natural-smelling lemony scent (overpriced goes without saying).
Can you offer some examples?
As a teacher I did encounter this phenomenon - the "feel good" crowd, who sees progress whenever challenging views and people who know more than one does are made to...
Royalty tends to go for understatement. That one can't sniff the royal pineapple doesn't mean that the royal pineapple isn't there, royally so.
No worries. The House of Creed thanks you for your...

Cut the word - a little redundant anyway - "parody" from your post... and then we are of one mind :laugh:
Thank you, I understand. I am newer here, even if I was occasionally accessing the site for the past few years before registering.
This is not the same author as the one from this older blog entry, is it?
Don't wanna seem stupid but what is "FB"? FaceBook??
And while I'm at it, what store is called MiN?
Is it too much not to assume that people are familiar with countless acronyms? Thanks.
Ummm... between a well-written parody and one-worded, twitter-like dismissive comments... what to choose... what to choose?
People like Drseid (there are others, like Sculpture of Soul, the_good_life, Dullah, Sir Buzzlepuff.... and the list is only started, far from complete) make subscribing to these forums worthwhile.
This has to do quite a bit with the "juvenilization" and "over-democratisation" of the Internet.
If I may make an analogy.... in the old days of the IMDB, you had fewer, older on the average,...
Is that French? I pronounced it "horse horrors."
Kudos to Dernier_Cri for the chutzpah. I guess being "BNPLUS" member helped his confidence... :laugh:
N. B. The image above is not meant to be pornographic in any way. :laugh:
I thought the right acronym was FWB, rather?
Just wondering... even IF they made a mistake on the website and defined as EdP another product... they should accept a free return, right, including any postage costs?
(No I didn't order...
Thank you for your answers... I mailed blind a The pour un ete to my sister... now I find out she is extremely happy. (She liked it better than La chasse au papillons and Homage, my previous gifts......
How - if at all - have L'Artisan Parfumeur fragrances been affected by the (in)famous IFRA regulations? Thank you, fellow L'AP lovers.
Thank you for your answer. Hopefully somebody of a different opinion might actually find, some day, some arguments to answer yours.
What precisely do you disagree with and based on what? Thank you.
"I have never pursued wealth for its own sake. Creed fragrances are cheap, frankly." (The average retail price for a bottle is £145.) "If I aimed for the same profit margins as some of the famous...
To paraphrase the old bon mot about beer, you can rent Aventus, you can't own Aventus.
PS What would your babies smell like?
Aventus: "you tryin' to wear that as a scent or are you workin' on marinatin' somethin' ?"
Thank you Ipp for your positive thoughts (-:
Thanks, Ipp, what I was trying to say was that I use them in such minute quantities not mainly because they are expensive/rare (the white boxes soon unfindable), but because I find them better...
I do have the white boxes... both Tribute and Homage. I am using them parsimoniously but not only because they are precious, but because they smell better, imo, the less you use!
In fact I...
Not Luchino the director, Antonio the perfumer. How are his perfumes?
Never sniffed any. Tabarom... (pretty funny name, given the existence of the controversial Tabarome) sounds like an...
Nothing to do with it. I am not able to distinguish individual notes in such a complex concoction like Gold, but the total effect is completely different (and unpleasant, to my nose) from any Amouage...
Just to offer an opinion: among Amouage attars I am familiar - I own (owned) Homage, Tribute, Al-Andalus, Salamah and Tahani [only].
Are they all very every good? No question about it. However,...
Thank you gentlemen.... indeed very convenient, fast, cheap ... totally happy!
I'll remember Accessories for Fragrance for any future needs of this kind.
Beautifully cogent description.
On a more subjective level, what is your personal preference... C or V? Thank you.
Thank you. Very useful. An impeccable gentleman as always.
I am sorry if this was answered many times before. I tried to do a search first.
Where can one get a couple of empty 1ml or so vials, simple vials with a little wand, not sprayers, without...
Up to you... I'd suggest though 12 ml.
Used rationally - you do not want to murder but enchant people with it - it should last you a long long time.
It is a great fragrance. With it, less is...
PS No offense to Sculpture - excellent reviewer!
Advice to those in possession of a stale Creed:
Quit complaining. Hang unto it. A few more years, perhaps a couple of decades, if you can make it.
Suddenly you'll be the only possessor of the...
Am I the only one basenoter who would join a pay-per-view opportunity to witness this?
I sampled this via a kind BaseNoter... was not crazy about it (UJSLT). Nice opening, yet followed by some detergenty-dirty mid- and basenotes, to my nose.

In White? In Black?
Inquiring noses want to know :laugh:
Amouage Homage. It put things in perspective... (-;
May I ask, please - which attars do you know, and which ones did you sniff in more than one batch and what are your impressions regarding batch variations... also which attar you've bought had a...
No wonder the Ottoman Empire is in the thriving, enviable shape it's been in, for the last century or so. :smiley:
The question is: is that desirable?
Beautifully put, with the right amount of nuance!
Not the most important aspect, I know, but the look of the bottles is gorgeous, really elegant. I love my Tribute so - it's a long shot but I have to ask - I wonder how one could sample these marvels...
Composition-wise, arguably yes, quality of ingredients...? Real question.
GIT has gotten some compliments.
With Aventus the heads turn indeed, but the other way.
Then, granted, I rarely frequent ill-famed neighborhoods (-;
Eau de Cristopher Plumber?
By the way folks, I am a bit the new guy on the block here, but let's not give the original poster such a hard time. He shared a slightly annoying to him, somewhat funny to us story, nothing bad to...
Trying to get an 85% discount on the collection? Not nice. Not fair.
I thought of that first (-:
Thanks. All the keys to all the apartments? Now THIS is the guy who has de facto the hugest perfume collection among all of us!
There is no variety and vintage of Axe he wouldn't know about!
Did you pay him by the hour?
Why the edit? It was a cute joke.
Thank you Gamma. I am not familiar with the brand. On superficial inspection it seems SMN has quite a number of colognes, even eliminating the obviously feminine/floral ones. Is Eau de Cologne your...
Thank you Sir [Buzzlepuff] for your interesting comments. I still want to go (quasi-)traditional, cologne-wise, and minimalistically chemical, but with the best there is [if it doesn't cost $400! 100...
I am on the lookout for the "perfect" summer 2013 cologne myself - it's a little early, I know. I want something both simple and sophisticated, neither uniflore nor...
