If you have a bottle for sale pm me please. Thanks
Idk how to post pics but the creed spice and wood, jardin d'amalfi & pure white cologne flacons have got to be up there.
Welcome aboard josh! And don't worry we all have the same problem here. :beer:
^^Mmm burch & pinapple lol
But these fragrances weren't reformulated by choice. They were forced to reformulate them by the ifra because of restrictions on certain materials used (oakmoss for example).
Amouage interlude or epic man
I offer the opportunity for people to make $50,000 a week for a entry fee of $500 and in turn they offer the same opportunity to 5 people each and give me half their $500 and so on.
L'air du desert moroccan & Xerjoff nio. Just got to scratch one off my list (lidge) thanks to a fellow basenoter. Shout out to hawky454.. thanks again buddy! :-)
+1 mugler cologne (thierry mugler)
Great balanced batch.. i think you'll be very happy with it. W01 is the last of the smokey/birch batches.
Good question.. i'll be interested to hear someone try to describe it lol.. A*men pure malt is a perfect example btw
I don't have any experience with K01 personally but from what i gather K01 is suppose to be one of the best batches of 2014.
If you want spicy as in woody spicy try boucheron jaipur homme edp
I was sure atleast one person was gonna say drugs. lol
Paypal is easy to use.. just start a paypal account by registering your name & email.. and to buy you don't even have to link a bank account.. you can just use a prepaid visa giftcard. You just link...
I feel better knowing i paid $120 for say a 50ml decant of tuscan leather and knowing everyone else is paying $250 (including tax) for the same thing. Now take into account i won't buy...
Well i wouldn't wear pure malt or pure havane or la nuit for that matter in triple digit heat but for a warm summer night they're fine. Plus you'll probably be indoors in a temperature controlled...
Welcome aboard Tom5pence! D&G the one smells fantastic but performance is terrible. La nuit (edt) on the other hand is a great choice for nights out, dates, etc.. You might also try mugler cologne,...
Welcome aboard dafatha00! Not only is it real but you lucked out.. K01 is suppose to be one of the best batches of 2014. Keep it cuz 2015 batches suck! Btw the batch number can be on the back, bottom...
Well i guess it's the thought of having to buy a new bottle every 3 weeks.. especially if its something like neroli portofino at $200+ per 50ml bottle. :-/
Ok so i've added it up and i've got 2,655mls so if there's 10-12 sprays per ml and i use 4 sprays per wearing/day my collection should last me roughly 21 years or 10 1/2 years at 6 sprays per...
I've heard serge lutens ambre sultan compared to amber absolute but i can't say personally. Also profumum roma ambra aurea.
Why don't you just order spicebomb on fragrancenet & use the money you save on that to put towards bleu de chanel? The 50ml is $47.50 with 25% off coupon
Of the two dior homme if you're gonna be in the ac most of the time. Personally i would go with dior homme sport or dior homme cologne.
It's to throw off the counterfeiters. lol
There's la nuit edt that comes in a bottle you can see the juice and there's la nuit eau de parfum that's in a matte black bottle you can't really see through.
Really? I agree with dougczar you must have gotten a bad sample or something cuz jardin d'amalfi is a beautiful fragrance. Describe what your sample smelt like
Someone else had the same issue with a bond no9 frag recently. I would try returning it if possible.
Did you try creed's royal oud? If not try that.. its an amazing spicy cedar scent. And for a freshie try bond no9 bleecker street.. its a fresh blueberry type scent. You can sample royal oud at...
You could put them in a small cooler & put a freezer pack in it during the day to keep them cool.
Green irish tweed
Ysl rive gauche
Dior eau sauvage
Acqua di parma colonia
Awesome thanks buddy.. i'll have to get me a bottle. How would you describe the smell? Is it comparable to any other frags?
Lewis is usually on the second floor.. he's a white guy with brown hair & looks like he goes tanning. The blond i'm talking about is mid 40's, skinny & her hair looks all greasy like les (the dad)...
Yea there's a few of us on here lol. And i'm not too sure. I think the nordstrom in the woodlands mall has creeds so you might ask them. Also there's a little niche store on west alabama street...
Are you talking about neiman marcus in the houston galleria? If so & you ever buy a fragrance there go to lewis craft he's really cool and he'll hook you up with samples. The older lady with blond...
If there's a saks fifth avenue or neiman marcus in your area you can sample tom fords there. They'll make you 4ml samples & tbh that should last you a while since its so hard to find the right...
What about performance.. any difference from the original formulation?
Hmm.. mugler cologne is good for daytime casual in warm/hot weather while dhs is good for day or night, t-shirt & jeans or a suit & tie. I'd have to say dhs for versatility factor. Both smell great...
But if you don't like it atleast it's only a $6 loss not $45. All you need is 1ml to get a good idea whether you like it or not.
13W01 is one of the last batches with prominent birch/smoke. If ZZ01 was your only experience with aventus W01 might seem smokey but prior to ZZ01 it was considered a fruity batch.
If you tried dior homme and like it, it's a pretty safe bet you'll like dhi. Its like the drydown of dior homme cranked up a few notches.
Oh my bad i didn't see that. But no he's legit.. i got my 4oz aventus & silver mountain water from him & they're real.
Ask member bt30_1972.. he sells the 4oz creeds for $130. He can probably get it for you. Look for him in the sales thread.
Great frag.. smells fresh & clean like a fresh shave right after a shower. Supposedly the reformulation is an improvement of the original & lasts longer.
Agreed.. i wish more houses would let a frag go with some dignity. A forced (significant) reformulation is the fragrance equivalence of breaking up & asking for an open relationship. Just let it go!...
Hi shelikesmymusk.. check out acqua viva by profumum roma.. the most amazing lemon frag ever. Also try mfk acqua universalis forte. And for vetiver try vetiver extrordinaire by frederic malle
Op theres not suppose to be a reflective surface on the bottom of the bottle lol.. Its if you hold the bottle at an angle it should have an almost sparkly/glittery affect anywhere on the bottle. But...
Hanai mori him, One million and Spicebomb by viktor & rolph all have a similar vibe. Hanai mori him is the best option imo. I prefer the edp version.
I would email or call bond.. maybe they'll send you some free samples to make up for it.
Tbh i think he's just trying to get people to pay full retail. If you think about it creed only has 3 boutiques in the world. One in france, one in new york and one in dubai. Ok the inserts are in...
Out of those eau sauvage. Another suggestion i would add is acqua di parma colonia. Also 4711.. it doesn't last a long time but you can get like a gallon for $20 on fragrancenet so you can carry a...
Hi matte.. welcome aboard! You might check out A*men pure malt & A*men pure havane.. Also dior homme & dior homme intense.
I think it says when its getting released in remiks splits thread.
If you like spicebomb you'll like hanai mori him.. its a cinnamon based fragrance. If you get the chance try the edp.
Spicebomb doesn't have a cap. :-p
Check the splits thread.. BillyD has aventus dirt cheap and several members here in the u.s. have gotten splits from him with no problem. You can get a 50ml decant for $49 or a 100ml decant for $94....
Spicebomb is nice during winter.. i love cinnamon frags when its cold. Have you tried hanai mori him?
A*men pure malt
Dior homme intense
Creed green irish tweed or aventus
Tom ford private blends
Dior Ambre nuit.. its a dark spicy amber & rose.
Welcome Adelina.. glad you decided to join the madness! :vrolijk_26:
Hi yanks.. wow very well thought out collection you have! A few i would add are...
Creed royal oud (highly recommend)
Bond no9 bleecker street
Dior ambre nuit
Ysl la nuit de l'homme (edt)...
Hi Beth.. welcome aboard! :beer:
Anybody know what happened to "mike the cologne guy"'? His youtube channel disappeared too.
Idk but i think he started his own fragrance line so i doubt he was an amazon affiliate or whatever.
Remik you took the words right out of my mouth! I can't tell you how many times i've mentioned this to the sa's at saks & neiman marcus. Every time i buy a fragrance all they ever have is womens tote...
This little boy's in his room & his dad walks in & catches him.. he says BOY quit that.. you're gonna go blind doin that! The boy says dad i'm over here.. he says ahhh dad, can i just do it till i...
Are you in the u.s.? If so heres what you do.. call neiman marcus & (if they're atleast an hour's drive from you) tell them you just got into fragrances and you're really interested in creed so you...
Welcome aboard Alex! Great list.. you might hold off on the acqua di gio.. they're about to release adg intense so you might like that better.
What other frags do you own besides creeds PhiladelphiaSnowboarder?
Thanks your list is great also. Welcome aboard (no pun intended). lol
3. Royal Oud
4. Silver Mountain Water
5. Millesime Imperial
I'm gonna say dior homme sport.. the iris/lipstick note may be a bit much in the original dior homme to start with. I couldn't stand dior homme when i first smelt it. But i ended up getting a bottle...
Idk i've wondered that myself. Maybe they think people that shop at neiman marcus, saks, etc.. are more likely to spend $200+ on a fragrance vs people that shop at sephora, macys, etc..? Just a theory
I knew they had them online but now they have them in the store for anyone that doesn't have a neiman marcus or saks wanting to try them.
Thanks for the info.
lol i think he means it was kind of spontaneous & he hadn't really planned on going.
Aventus + Royal oud = Fantastic! Try one spray of royal oud + one spray of aventus. The cedar from royal oud goes great with the birch & pineapple in aventus.
Watch, if it gets scarce the people who could care less about it will start wanting it. lol
I would substitute the versace blue jeans with versace pour homme or man eau fraiche. Eros smells similar to blue jeans with that musky vanilla smell.. not really ideal for summer imo. Mugler...
No problem man.. and no they're probably just letting you know if you're not satisfied you have the option to return it. Did you email them doubting its authenticity? Another thing.. creeds tend to...
Hi Larrinco and welcome to basenotes! No worries your git is real.. creed sometimes changes details on the boxes to throw off counterfeiters.. my box has white around the green felt on the box also....
Yea if you see one shrinkwrapped its a fake. Just saying so you know what all to tell ebay when they ask why you think its fake. And stay away from frags that have a sleeve over the box.
And if he tries to say its because creed changed the sprayers (which they did.. twice) the first change when you pull the sprayer off the straw has a metal ring around it to prevent someone from...
Its fake.. the silver mountain water insert is common with fake aventus. Sorry bro.. hope you can get your money back. :-/
From the pics they both look 100% legit. So no worries.. enjoy. ;-)
Ok, thank you mumsy! :-)
Wow, great story! Did it trigger any flashbacks when you smelled it?
Awesome.. the more the merrier. Anyone know what happened to Lpp? I tried to pm her to see how she's been but there's no pm option?
My thoughts also.. sounds like she's trying to send you a message. ;-)
You can't refill creed bottles.. they make them tamperproof.
I had a theory of my own. I wonder if people returning used fragrances to retailers using the excuse they had an allergic reaction (most lies of course) has anything to do with it?
Its fake.. the little circle between the CD on the cap and sleeve are dead giveaways. Also the straw is too long and cap is too transparent. Open a case asap
Oh its still there trust me. You've become anosmic to it. Meaning you can't smell it but others can. Aventus is notorious for causing olfactory fatigue.. try asking someone else if they can smell it...
Its a tie between noir de noir & plum japonais for me.
Next time you go to the mall go to sephora instead. Not the one's in jcpenny they don't have much. You'll trip out.. its a whole wall full of fragrances & nobody breathing down your neck pressuring...
No problem.. 13W01 wasn't really smokey compared to previous batches.. it was just the smokiest batch compared to everything after W01. Keep checking the sales thread.. an older batch pops up now &...
Mustafa911 its fruity.. if you want a smokey batch you'll have to hunt down a 2013 batch.. more specifically a pre 13Z01 batch. 13W01 was the last smokey'ish batch i tried.
Check the sales thread.. i think naylor is selling a creed cap for $15.
