I cross-referenced all the note lists from the OLD sites.....AUS, UK, and US sites.....and used those cross-referenced combos as official pyramids since. the older sites actually each had far more comprehensive note lists compared to their modern websites. I included those pyramids on many of my reviews in the directory.
For instance my review on Erolfa has one of the more thorough cross-referenced note lists directly from the older CREED websites:

No other scent to date have I turned my initial opinion around for.
On it's surface it invokes a simple image, a rough saltwater ocean on a slightly overcast day. But it's construction is far from simple:
Top: Ozone, Sea Salt, Marine Algae, Seaweed,
Morrocan Tangerine, Lemon, Bergamot, Orange, Mandarin, Lime
Heart: Violet, Honeydew melon, Cyclamen, Jasmine,
Ginger, Coriander, pepper, Caesarean Basil, Rosemary, Cumin, Pine
Base: Cedar, Sandalwood, Musk, Ambergris
At first, the notes look dissonant, but when you analyze further, small doses of all these elements makes sense in evoking the perfect aquatic image. And that is what Creed has done. Both thumbs way up.
Compare that^ note list to the current CREED boutique *afterthaught* list:
