Thanks for the feedback mikesc, goes to show everyones nose is different.
The 2015 batch was very good, very strong and had a very salty dry down. 2015 was a good year for Creed.
Its been almost 24 hours since I did that sample spray on my hand and I can still smell it, this is even after washing it.
To give it some credit the late drydown (12 hours later) is nice. Mainly...
Its available in the UK now, seen it in John Lewis. They also have it in the new pre-filled atomsier (£300)
I’m big Tuscan leather fan but this is a disappoint. It’s an exact copy of Atelier...
Easy answer, its just not a crowd pleaser and just doesn't have that mainstream appeal. Its a smell that is quite polarizing and wouldn't be out of place in the Dior Privee line.
I've a 2015...
I would just pack a 50ml bottle. I took 50ml of Grey Vetiver when I went to Japan for 2 weeks. I think I used over a quarter of the bottle.
But my thinking is, if I wanted another fragrance I...
I tried this today, massive thumbs down.
If you was to blind smell this, you would think it was the new Versace fragrance. Smells totally generic and could be any entry level designer fragrance. ...
Sauvage (synthetic mess)
Anything from celebs, Beckham, Bieber, Britney... Jhericurls don't roll like that.
Royal Oud title is very misleading, there isn't any oud smell.
If TL is too strong wouldn't it make more sense to just spray less of TL then buy a watered down version.
Can't help but think that Estee Lauder is currently trying to milk it with all these...
Its ok, nothing special.
The discussion got too real.
Is this another FragranceNet fake?
Same for me, I go at least 8 with SMW and MI. And I could easily do more without choking anyone out. I work in an air conditioned office and that seems to stop any projection of fragrances.
Grey Vetiver, no competition.
179... Thats like 6 a day. So you layered 2 at a time? Was this a purge or a race.
That time of the month already... 22 fragrance worn this month.
Oud Wood by Tom Ford
When I was wearing one time, my gran told me I smelled very sexy.
If you've an 8-pack like myself, the stomach is good place as the ridges and cuts helps hold the scent.
Shots fired, you my man is now my favourite poster on BN.
Why would you bind buy a female fragrance?
I don't think it was a personal attack. Was more stating an observation. From the outside looking in, you seem besotted with Jeremy.
He might be the seconding coming of christ to you but...
Not much ever happens in Fragcom... we'll take anything we can get.
But when all is said and done. Regardless if Jeremy has purchased subs or sponsored by YSL, Dave has done himself no favours.
Pre 2014 version 3 sprays and you're good. Post 2014, you can easily do 6+.
I've been hearing the same thing as I was thinking of buying a bottle last week.
Jeremy did have a brief stint as a singer and is a professional model, so knows how to look good in front of a camera. Jeremy is trying to promote a lifestyle, good looks, woman and money. Thats why...
Oud Wood easy, it has no projection. Others will not smell it, so it wouldn't offend anyone.
Wow, you must be a massive fan.
I don't care for Jeremy's videos at all. They're only aimed at people who are after female compliments. But at least Jeremy knows his target audience and can be...
Cologne royale is nice but its very weak, almost zero projection. Dior Homme Cologne has better performance.
Dior cologne royale, is called COLOGNE. Which is suppose to be EDP concentration but performs like a cologne.
Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I was doing some research on fake Tom Fords and found this thread.
Anyway, that Oud Wood is fake as hell, Jowan and Hednic needs their eyes tested.
No worries, normally its like pulling teeth.
Not to my taste, nasty honey/milk mix.
Should be called Bois de tergent!!

Bond no.9 New Hamptons
I read loads of bad reviews about their new water down, now favoured tap water. Would of like to have tried some of their fragrances but its game over for them now.
A pictures is worth a thousand words, so here it is
Testers are made using higher quality juice, so doubt they would let you replace it with the cheaper retail version.
I don't care for this at all.
And the new 75ml bottles are reformulated and not as strong.
Super human and amazing passion for fragrances. Own over 2,000 fragrances, yet still have time to smell every fragrance currently on sale to report back on your findings. You're a credit to BN.
I stopped talking reviews seriously after noticing that their reviews always seem to be more positive and maybe bias.
What is the point of listening to him rant and spam, about how he owns every...
Yes, from original brown bottle to grey. The older version smells richer and dirtier but doesn't have better performance.
Got about 6/7 sprays of A85 on today. Its been on me for about 6 hours and I can still get very light whiffs of it and I do mean "very light"
I think most of us know that already.
I think the he was referring to a reformulation of the new formulation.
Does Jeremy's recommendations make it a fragrance hyped now?
As much as I dislike Mugler I would pick Pure Tonka over the disaster they call Code Profumo.
I heard that Creed reps have been told recently not to claim that their products are worn by any celebrities.
But in the past Creed has always been quite careful with their wording. Instead of...
If you like the fragrance then yes. But don't expect it to be something kind of elixir. It smells almost identical to the current version, it just has much better performance.
They definitely can't be identical. When I first tried it (few year ago), I hated it, I got a massive tiger balm smell and had to wash it off. When I tried it again last year I liked it a lot and...
Costume National Soul
Bois 1920 Vento nel Vento
Both moved on to a new home with the quickness.
Anything released in 2015 better than this new hype beast?
Thanks for your initial impression and I hope you wear it in good health.
Would be interested on your feedback on this.
Tested this today and I don't like it. I didn't enjoy the opening, a very strong grass accord backed up by a very earthy soil note.
About 2 hours in when it dry downs and some sweetness and...
Amouage Bracken nothing more than just a patchouli bomb, with a bit of incense on the dry down when it becomes a skin scent.
Don't like the opening or the mid but the dry down is very nice.
Aventus no.1 choice for a try hard.
I wouldn't pay full price for it, I don't pay full price for anything.
Fragranceshop had a 21% sale recently and Escentual currently have it for £45. Personally still too expensive for me.
There isn't any information on the short batch codes. But testers don't have magnetic caps so the juice could be any age.
Thats not fact until Hednic comes in here in the next hour to come state the obvious.
Brut the vintage formulation smells better than Prada Amber Intense.
There always seems to be a 5% code floating around.
For 5% off use:
This has dropped in the UK now and sampled it today. It is very similar to DHI and could be redundant to own both. What made the original great in my opinion was the hazelnut and coffee base which...
Eau Sauvage extreme will be discontinued before Parfum does IMO.
I'm a snob and some might also say a knob. But Rihanna fragrance for a man?! Wouldn't wear it even if its the best smelling thing in the world.
Its crap, smells like tooth paste
The synthetic opening kills it for me. But you're awarded with a nice sandalwood drydown.
There is already a GIT thread.
I have it but rarely wear it. Too strong for my taste.
Makes a nice paper weight.
Why bump an old thread just to say that... makes you worst than a 130k post count narcissistic spammer.
Second post hednic beat me too it.
But instead of spamming the thread and saying I own and like everything, I'll be a little more constructive.
Baccarat isn't generic and pretty unique to my...
People said the same thing about Interlude Man when it was first released. IM is one of my favourites so I'll have to test this.
I was going to avoid this like an obsessive rich old man with a large collection. But the past few post has sparked my interest.
2013 was a great year for Creed. 2015 the worst.
Not gonna happen, Mayfair is crap.
Armani Privé Myrrhe Impériale
I got the full fat 100ml bottle. I just find it very 1 dimensional, what it opens with is what it drys down to. After a few hours I really have to put my nose next to my skin to smell it. Maybe I...
After a few more wearing of Vento nel Vento I can say this is a 5 out 10. Its very linear, just incense, pink pepper and patchouli. As it drys down the benzoin starts to come to the foreground...
You'll be disappointed when you get it anyway. Extremely poor projection and longevity isn't better than the EDT.
That's what I do. Don't over think it.
Got this today, first impression is that its extremely similar to Armani Bois d'Encens but without the muskiness. Which is a good thing, I hated the muskiness.
Oh man, I just blind bought this from your feedback, sounds right up my street.
Yes, ages ago.
I think I've seen it but couldn't be bothered testing it.
Thought it was Harrods and it was £176.
This is the land of milk and honey.
I don't get an very little milk and no honey, it's just vanila.
Not a fan
They are different to my nose. I get a tiger balm smell in the old version. They new version I don't smell that and feels more modern.
I own this scent and every scent in the world and glad to have it in my collection.
Sounds like a typical night out in Birmingham
Sick as in good, you not down with the kids?
You wear it and report back. I wear white sneakers in winter, there are no rules.
I think he said he was going leave it to his children and grandchildren to do with what they wish.
Another good option. [emoji106]
Dior cologne royal
Who said it smells like leather? I just get a very light sweet grass smell. But the fact that you purchased it from Fragrancex means its real.
I want this but not seen it on sale anywhere. Can't wait to get this frag, is going to be LIT fam.
Sounds like the real deal to me. CH isn't a strong smell and bottle is budget.
Have you smelt CH Men before?
If Hednic thinks they are just OK they must be bad.
Smelt this today, it's horrible. Not sure if this is a joke but this could be a drug store fragrance,
