    Default Thanks Basenotes - bought my first creed - SMW

    I came across this site through another website - I have great passion for scents but was not aware of any high end perfumes and thanks to the basenotes community i learned a lot about scents and it really opened my eyes in terms of whats out there

    I was about to order Creed from one of the online stores but when i read so much about fakes, i chose to drive to Holt Renfew in downtown Toronto and after testing a few of them I bought SMW , i like it so much.
    I know its expensive ( 291 + taxes for 120 ml), but atleast i know its authentic, if anyone wants, i can take pictures so you guys can compare if you think your's is fake.

    I also took samples of GIT, BdP, MI etc, so i might go for another one soon

    Thanks to you all

    Thanks Chris

    I was just looking at your wardrobe - Oh boy you have a 193 scents in your collection - where do you keep all this collection - just curious :-)

    Excellent choice; Silver Mountain Water is indeed a great scent. I have really come to love it myself and do believe it will be one of the few fragrances I will re-purchase when I run out.

    Welcome to Basenotes!

    Congratulations! It's a slippery slope. I've been thinking about getting a bottle of SMW. It would be my fourth Creed. I currently have GIT, BdP, and English Leather - all mighty fine. My partner is a fan of Original Vetiver.

    My first BN rated frag was a Creed too and I too bought it new from a reliable internet store; Original Vetiver.

    I wonder how much of his 120ml this guy has used in the last 8 years... I dare say the bottle would be empty and in landfill somewhere by now...

    I was so confused by your quote, then I scrolled up and saw the thread is actually 8 years old! I was going to recommend he scout out some Marshalls/Winners for Creed since they are ~150$ CAD. Maybe he found that out already...

    Lols yeah I think some newbies here don't look at the date of the threads when they post...

    Which is more important; to save thread space and post under relevant topics, or to start new threads regardless date and relevant threas? Two sides of a coin here. Don't suppose there is a right or wrong even if some find it crass.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I bought my first bottle of SMW in 2009. Since then, I sampled probably 2 dozen other creeds and some women's Creeds as well. SMW remains the best one to my nose. Excellent choice, IMO.

    Have always loved SMW. Need to reach for it more.

    I personally enjoy seeing what people think about a fragrance over time. I like the organization and requirement that people try to post in similar existing threads.

    I used to like SMW but cant wear it anymore unfortunately. Its way too metallic to my nose and i get sick of it real quick.

    My first Creed was SMW also. SMW and VIW instantaneously grabbed my attention.
