    Re: CREED - Cedre Blanc

    I'll give Cedre Blanc a sniff but am a bit skeptical. Otherwise this thread is a joke, Sausage King of Chicago.

    Re: 26 and falling in love with a Powerhouse.....

    Ok, a shame but not surprising these days. I checked my various bottles and they all list oak moss and tree moss extract, so I am relieved that I have enough to last me!

    The similarity to the creed is especially due to the black currant. I like CB a lot. It reminds me a bit of "froot loops".

    Re: what defines an "italian style" fragrance?

    Oh that is sooo true! In my opinion what makes a typical Italian scent is something bright and summery with a herbal side. Like Aqua di Parma Colonia and Villoresi Uomo or Colonia.
