    au contraire...my defensive friend....i feel you have become the 'negative' one.

    i am simply offering the TRUTH. none of the information offered by Creed can be confirmed anywhere...that is the truth. you wanna prove me wrong, DO IT.

    you hit the nail on head man! tht's the image it evokes. btw, Sandflowers smell very ordinary close to skin....the magic is in its sillage...it'll grow on you with each wear, good you have 2 samples! give it a full wear! im sure it'll pleasantly suprise you...

    I liked the discussion on Rolexes ..

    BTW, the end of the world is near...(former) Ellena fanboy Chandler Burr gives Creeds Virgin Island Water 4 stars in his latest column (this following Malle praising Love in Black in Allure Sept '08 issue )..

    Thanks for the link. You know, I keep teetering on bottling on VIW. It may just happen. I agree with TS that it's just a bit ordinary - like my favorite sunscreen - but I also agree with Burr that it's good at what it does. In the end, I think this is one more time where the text of the Turin/Sanchez review is something I agree with, but the stars I do not.

    I wonder if Burr has reviewed Bath & Body Works Coconut Lime Verbena. It would be interesting to see if that got 4 stars, too.

    Whoops. All this civilized Creed talk has to be w-a-a-a-y OT. Choc! Scandale! What will we do?

    Oh, and also, T.Rex, this doesn't have anything to do with dismissal of members or their thoughts for perceived association with particular manufacturers (TM in superscript here). Anyone can say hey, what's written is offensive, and that usually is enough.

    I stand corrected. I misread your intentions and I apologize.

    Then why are Creed fanatics the only people here who go after critics personally for not liking their Precious Darlings? You don't see Mr. Guerlain freaking out and accusing Luca Turin of being a fraud because he gave several of the Guerlains two or fewer stars. Several of my favorites took a beating from Turin and Sanchez and Burr, too. That doesn't mean I think they're bad, stupid, dishonest people, a logical leap that seems to consistently evade Emmanuel's disciples. (Along with spell check and the proper use of homonyms.)

    Gotcha. Score 50 for T.Rex! Whoa, I'm persuaded. Write me down as a follower. I don't know why or how I could have thought otherwise.

    I misspell many words. I write run-on sentences. I put in too many commas or not enough. I have to look up words. I make plenty of mistakes as I try to communicate. Sometimes I communicate poorly.

    Thank you for removing your content above.

    I think this thread has run its course. Very likely I'll close it. Sorry for all inconvenience everyone.

    PM me if there are things you want me to know or think about regarding my decisions.
