I would say NO! I don't see how they were ever the best in terms of quality.
To me, quality is a well rounded fragrance made to meet your qualifications. Natural ingreedients don't necessarily make it smell any better and I don't think Creed uses all that many natural things. Synthetic doesn't mean bad as is commonly assumed. It is just not a natural ingreedient.
I say no because natural ingreedients do not creat a better blend of notes.
EDIT!!!: Look down!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH dcampen. That made my day. I couldn't have put it better!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
