    Re: Creed Vetiver Geranium for winter

    I wouldn't recommend it for winter. I also wouldn't recommend it for an 18 year old....unless you're intending to set a trend or be an individual. It's not the mainstream type scent among young...

    Fico di Amalfi is very easy to like. A total vacation or 'day off' scent for the spring/summer months.
  93. Re: Slim down the collection while it is still small :)

    Re: Creed Royal Mayfair Alternatives?

    Catie's Bubbles Royal Garden is actually the one I ended up selecting after the failures to dupe. Royal Garden honestly doesn't smell like Royal Mayfair in that the eucalyptus is muted, not fresh...

    I have to wear this sometime. It's something I just don't hear about much anymore but it's a great Avon classic.
