No problem! The only reason I know about it is because somebody here clued me in. Here's another tip: As I said, you can use the keyword "basenotes" on Fragrancenet to save an additional 15% off the listed sale price, but fragrancenet sometimes runs deeper discounts and that can really help you save a bundle. Check this section
of the forum here, where people post ongoing sales. And sign up for ebates
to get a bit of cash back. And of course, pay using a credit card that gives you some sort of rewards. Hey, every bit helps, right?
That being said... unless you REALLY want to own a Creed bottle, you may be better off buying in on a decant. I don't regret buying a bottle, but looking back on it, I wouldn't have regretted buying in on a decant either. It can be a little cheaper, and you can be sure which batch you're getting ahead of time if you worry about that (at this point, I don't think it matters. All batches these days seem to be consistent).
