this goes back to my original point about this frag... i wonder if we (well, some of you guys) have forgotten the value of "smelling good".
meaning... i wonder if you are so focused on the trees, that you forget the forest. you are so consumed with Creed putting out some quirky, anachronistic scent that a COLLECTOR would love, that you forget what it's like for something to just plain smell good.
i have this argument with a lot of my friends who are musicians. many music aficionados get so snobby about music. they like bands that they discover, until, that is, they get popular. then they stop liking them. not because their music changed, but because too many people like them and they aren't "special" anymore.
I own Windsor. I own Vintage Tab, and Acier Aluminium. I love Bois de Santal, Angelique Encens, Cuir de Russie, and a bunch of other "classic" Creeds.
And while I realize that Aventus is of a different philosophy, at the end of the day I can't wait to wear it because it just smells so damn good.
Do you listen to music that sounds good, even if it's "pop music"? or are you so obsessed with finding an obscure, eclectic band that you've forgotten how to just enjoy music?
