    Re: Creed Aventus does not last on me

    You may also be experiencing a nose fatigue. Ask the people around you if they smell it on you. The same thing happened with me with Milesime Imperial.

    I'm surprised you're experiencing poor...

    Re: Suggestions needed for a signature scent

    Since you already like Cool Water, GIT would be a natural choice.

    If you like aquatics, I'd also suggest:

    Nautica Voyage - one of the best pure...

    Since you are in the fashion industry and most of the designer scent are probably pretty well known by the people you come across, I'd suggest getting something more niche.

    Heeley Oranges and Lemons

    Both excellent scents for very hot weather.

    Re: High School

    Absolutely correct. You won't get girls just because you smell nice, nor should you be getting a fragrance just to get girls, especially high school ones.

    How about you go to the mall and pick a...
  8. Re: hi what are some good fragrance sample that i should purchase?

    I agree, skip the first three. They are in every mall on the planet. Aventus is a good choice. I'd also add Green Irish Tweed and Virgin Island Water - also from Creed.

    In my experience, it is all the same. It is true that the fragrance in a tester bottle may have changed due to exposure. These changes though are probably hard to notice, especially in the...

  12. Re: Do scents really not last long... or do wearers not just smell them?

    It's a little bit of both but it also has to do with the molecules. Some people are anosmic to certain smells. Also, certain molecules may block your smell receptors and may not be able to detect...

    Re: Help!!

    That would really depend on your intentions but whatever they are you can never go wrong with Aventus. In fact, most of the Creeds are pretty occasion neutral, so anyone would work.

    Do I detect a little bit of an Italian leaning with the name Acqua Originale? Has Creed abandoned its French origins?

    Re: decision time. pls help

    In general, I'd pick Phylosikos but it may be a little too sweet for the weather. Tom Ford Grey Vetiver may work better. If you are set on the two you've selected, get Phylosikos - it is the better...
  18. Re: What do you think of this list for a first-time buyer?

    You have a good list already. I would definitely second the TdH and Bleu de Chanel on your list. I would also add the following:

    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
    Eau d'Italie Aqua Decima
    Heeley Oranges and...

    You may want to try Hermes Osmantus Yunnan. It is a gorgeous tea fragrance and yet, it is different. Iluminum Tribal Black Tea is also interesting.

  23. Re: Question...Why do some houses not make certain scents available to sample?

    I think it might be a tactic to maintain exclusivity (especially in the case of Hermes) and/or distribution.
