    I currently own all of the Creeds listed in my signature. At one time I had owned about 30, but cut back due to my preference for the older EDT's over the newer Millesimes.

    Six - Green Irish Tweed, Silver Mountain Water, Tabarome Millesime, Original Santal, Himalaya, Erolfa.

    Most smell pretty good, but I have issues with the longevity of a lot of Creeds. I wish Himalaya and Erolfa had a bit more lasting power. Other Creeds like Acier Aluminium, Royal English Leather, MI and Original Vetiver just don't last on me.

    I don't like all the creeds but I collect them as part of my reference library. I can't understand why people get so emotional over scents they don't like...lighten up and take an olfactory journey!

    I have about 36 creeds in total, so I think I have all of the so-called male collection and most of the so-called unisex...and i think one or two of the so-called female fragrances.

    this includes a few rare items like the male fragrance Bois de Rhodes.

    Yes you may have the rare bois de rhodes, or whatever, but do you have the ultra rare Green Frich Tweed or Sliver Mountain Water? That's how you know you are a real creed collector. I have 25+ creeds plus several GIT, but I don't own any limited edition Green Frich Tweed. I guess I am not a Real Creed Collector after all. :-(

    hi HDF! I sent you a PM that is self explanatory but i never did follow up with amelie. Amelie is the daughter of the CEO (unless he has retired)...but not related to the creed family.

    I was in the creed shop in paris some years ago and seems it was the last bottle of a discontinued line. She brought it out of storage when i asked for anything different.

    It's a citrussy eau de cologne. The distinctive creed vanilla and ambergris signature is subdued.

    Dont you worry about the scents going rancid? M.I. is a delicate fragrance and you have 11 of them. It may take a decade to go through all those bottles.

    Practically all my bottles are 2006 and 2007, and they are being kept at a constant cool, away from sunlight, so no, I don't think they will turn "rancid." I have smelled bottles from 2002 at Neiman Marcus several months ago, and even they were not "rancid."

    I own 2 creeds GIT, and Himalaya, and have sampled a dozen more. I Might to have to duck here, but for my hard earned dollars, I think I am much better served by at least 3 more houses that I can think of, than by Creed. Of the 2 that I do own they just sit, and collect dust.

    I own....Tubereuse Indiana, 2000 Fleurs, Jasmin Imperatrice Eugenie, Amalfi Flowers, Royal Ceylan, Love in White, Vanisia, Ambre Cannelle, Acier Aluminium, Original Santal, Virgin Island Water, Millesime Imperial, Green Valley, Neroli Sauvage, Silver Mountain Water, Royal Delight, Spring Flower, Jasmal, Green Irish Tweed and Fleurissimo. So...21 total. All but the EDTs and the Lt. ed. are 1 oz. bottles because I do fear the effects of time on the scents. I know my wardrobe is heavy on Creed. I have fragrances from other houses too, just not so many. I enjoy the variety in my Creed collection.

    As a fragrance neophyte I owned several bottles and flacons, but I soon found the majority of them to be screaming bores and as a result gave most of them away to an avid group of conservative golfers.

    Bottles:
    Original Vetiver
    Acier Aluminium (on it's way to me)

    Acier Aluminium
    Bois du Porugal

    So, 3 for me. In addition there are a few which I need to try again and a few which I want to try, but haven't had the chance to yet.

  59. #59

    Default Re: How many Creed frags do you own?

    By some peoples opinion I might own too many, but for me I feel they are all necessary, well most at least...

    Bois du Portugal
    Himalaya
    Vintage Tabarome
    Tabarome Millesieme
    Santal Imperial
    Original Vetiver
    Acier Aluminium
    Royal English Leather
    Green Valley
    Neroli Sauvage
    Royal Delight
    Virgin Island Water
    Zeste Mandarin Pamplemousse
    Baie de Genievre
    Ambre Canelle


    and then decants of just about all the others.

    Of these, I used to be quite fond of Himalaya but it has since grown a bit tired for me and I find myself reaching for this less and less. Also, for some reason I am no longer a huge fan of OV. I used to think it was divine, but now see it as decent and rarely end up using it, maybe this will change once spring rolls around...

    I will say that of the ones listed I think Vintage Tabarome, Royal English Leather, and Acier Aluminium are my favs. Unfortunately they are not always the most conventional frags to wear. Nevertheless I will still wear Vintage Tabarome at least once a weak, if not more.

    At the moment the only other Creed I am looking to buy is Royal Scottish Lavender, but will probably hold off until the fall.
