    Default Creed

    I heard that Creed hired Michael Jackson to find the most pure ambergris for their scents and that Millesime Imperial was actually made for Jaleel White (Steve Urkel) but it got ripped off by Chandler Burr who sold it to Puff Daddy who renamed it Unforgivable and you can get it from fragrancenet but how do I know that my Green Frich Tweed is really legit if the seller had 96.947% good feedback dating back to Royal English Leather which was the very first Creed but the serial number was ground off so I think my SMW has gone bad but it was worn by David Bowie so if I can't find a decant I'll figure out who the hell Cary Grant is and find the box and cap. Alf from Melmac wears Acier Aluminum so would a 20 year old be able to pull off Bois du Portugal and where can I get samples?

    :bounce:
    Lately I've been wearing:
    Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah

    The point -

    It's all been said!

    I'm a HUGE Creed fan, and even I'm getting tired of hearing about it!

    New people show up, they don't know we've already exhausted the topic of all things Creed to DEATH, and still they keep coming. People making pointless generalizations, speculations, comparisons...

    I guess there is such a thing as "too much of a good thing"!

    LOL - I spit my tea I was drinking reading this.
    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    You begin to awaken"

    This is why you don't use drugs kids. No but seriously, that was pretty funny. No but Creed did hire Michael Jackson for market research, he knows boys ages 7-14 very well.

    you forgot the uber mysterious Creed Cologne which appears on ebay with regularity and was first spotted way in the back of a warehouse in Mexico.

    Sometimes I begin to believe that all new people coming here were hired (or even created) by Creed to keep the theme rolling on the first Basenotes forum page forever!!!

    You are right. Even though I do not consider Creed to be a bad house, having all this repetitive creed threads, makes Basenotes look like an amateur, imature board... There is a place here for everybody. We just need to be more organized.

    I think the organizing goes on in the background unless you're a supporter. Supporters well... Creeds the least of their worries.

    And what about that band Creed? Has anyone played their records backwards?

    Please don't hate us newbies!

    Creed. I can't add anything to what's already been said here or elsewhere. But if it helps anyone sleep better at night, my interest in Creed has not been solely based on what I've read on Basenotes. Which is a mighty presumptuous assumption.

    Creed is discussed elsewhere. There's this new thing called the internet which facilitates one performing their own research and, by using this thing called a brain, drawing their own conclusions. And there are informative, non-opinionated posts on Basenotes and in the database.

    Not all newbies are sheeple or worship at the altar(s) of Basenote(rs). That being said, I'm just waiting for the Paris Hilton Mountain Spring Lipgloss frag from the HofC.

    To someone like me who has never sniffed a Creed befor or for that matter CDG or any other niche house...the curiousity always drives one to the wall. the amazing talent of each one here gives one enuff infomation about the scent beforehand..so, i must say it gives a pretty good idea about the scent...i was so glad to know XS smells similar to himalay and tht cool water kinda smells liek GIT...these are onyl references but gives newbies like us somethign ot cling upon...i knw the topic is not about not entertaining newbies...and yes, i guess too much of creed irritating poeple who use creeds as room freshners..
    btw, luckyscent introduced me to a whole new world of niche perfumes...im curious to know about all...

    I know but... this thread

    http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t=207873

    Really? If the concensus is no, will he not open the box?

    I think the newbies section is not used as it should be. The Search function is not used as it should be.

    Search is one of the most powerful parts of this or probably any bulletin board. Search and studying reviews of popular scents is worth 3 or 4 times the price of being a supporter.

    Some poster are just looking for attention and have nothing else to do all day.

    Like me.

    I just received a sample of Original Vetiver in an *original* Creed sample tube. It's my first Creed.

    Yesterday I wanted to touch you guys but I suppose I can touch myself now.
