    Re: Niche aquatic/citrus - Suggestions ?

    if you enjoy tart citrus notes, and are expecting an aquatic ambiance instead of the literal smell of seaweed, and don't mind being noticed, silver mountain water would be a good choice.

    Re: vetiver or vetiver frozen

    i really didn't like vetiver frozen. i got no mint, just some mild mentholated smell. and no real character to the body either. i prefer the original, or the sweeter and rootier vetiver extreme.

    Re: Is this ebay'd Creed MI a fake?

    it's real. the new clear imperial bottles are safe for now. the gold 2.5's are likely all legit too. but i'd say nine out of ten of the gold imperial bottles (4oz) on ebay are counterfeit.
