    Re: Creed Green Valley

    I bought a bottle of Green Valley from The London Perfume Company and I can honestly say I have never been so disappointed in a fragrance purchase (well, Code Ultimate I got as a pressie may be...

    Perfume-click.co.uk - Any good for Creed?

    Just wondering what these guys are like? Are they an okay company to deal with and are their Creed stocks good/old? Has anyone had any experience dealing with issues etc? Basically are they okay to...

    Re: Cheap(ish) Creed at Cheapsmells

    I can verify that these guys do sell genuine stock. My Original Vetiver is spot on and my bottle of GIT lasts an easy 9 hours. Having said that, I had to send a bottle of GIT back to them as it...

    Re: The London perfume company

    I tried to get a bottle of that very fragrance from LPS on the 25th Nov. My order was stuck on "processing" for a few days so I tried to contact them, as this was a present for my father's birthday. ...

    Re: http://www.cheapsmells.com/ OUTSTANDING!!

    Just an update. It looks like this transaction with London Perfume Shop has gone sour and I would certainly advise against using them. Indeed, their lack of a working phone number makes things even...

    Re: http://www.cheapsmells.com/ OUTSTANDING!!

    I tried to order some Creed OV from fragrance.net as, on their site, they state that their products are despatched from the UK via royal mail. This is not the case, at least for my order....

    Re: http://www.cheapsmells.com/ OUTSTANDING!!

    The reason that there is Arabic writing on the box is likely because Cheap Smells are sourcing product from overseas at lower prices and offering them to us at a discount. I wouldn't worry about it -...
  10. Re: What type of scent am I missing in my collection

    Yeah, I ought to follow that up. I got some samples of Encre Noir from the UK distributor and the CheapSmells bottle is indeed genuine. I suspected that it was as I have used CS for a while, just...
  11. Re: What type of scent am I missing in my collection

    I have decided to sell it on fleabay. I just can't believe that anyone thinks this is a worthwhile purchase. It's dull, lifeless, weak and has zero scent progression. I guess I have found the...

    Poll: Re: Encre Noire

    Actually, having had a few more goes I think that Encre Noir may be a grower - a bit like acclimatising yourself to Laphroaig whisky after drinking Glenfiddich for a few years. It does have an odd...

    Poll: Re: Encre Noire

    Well, I would say that it does seem to last okay on paper, though no more so than many other scents like a recent Chanel Alure Sport test card I had today. However, A*Men projection and longevity...

    Poll: Re: Encre Noire

    Not on me it's not. Its about the weakest and close to skin fragrance I own! In fact the more I think on this the more I think that Encre Noir isn't a fragrance at all. Rather its an idea of part of...
  15. Re: What type of scent am I missing in my collection

    Well, I got the Encre Noir in the post today and just sprayed it. To be honest, this isn't anywhere near as potent as TdH or Fahrenheit. Of all the scents I have had its likely to be the lightest and...
  16. Re: What type of scent am I missing in my collection

    Well, I found 100ml Encre Noir for 34 online, so I am swinging for that. I know its blind, but reading the thoughts of folk on here and watching a couple of videos on youtube (one guy loved it) I am...
  17. Re: What type of scent am I missing in my collection

    Okay, then. Some thoughts.

    Jesus! Chanel Sycomore isn't exactly cheap! Luckily Fenwicks is a Chanel boutique so they do have it for 105 100ml!! I guess quality is expensive but wasn't expecting...
  18. Re: What type of scent am I missing in my collection

    Thanks for the quick replies!

    I may be in possession of more samples than is strictly necessary!! I initially wanted something British, so got 8 samples from Geo F Trumper (almost all of them...
  19. What type of scent am I missing in my collection

    Hi all,

    First post, so be gentle.

    I have some cash, made from selling off some of my stuff on eBay, and am looking to build a collection of no more than five or six fragrances. I have chosen...
