    If you're one that notices the fecal note in Cuba, there's no getting around it. I wanted to like it as well and found myself scrubbing it off anytime I thought I try it again.

    Nah - not me. I can buy Creed from online discounters at pretty reasonable prices and would go that route before ever buying at that price. Besides, VT isn't my cup of tea scent wise.
