    Default Create Man by Puma - look at this bottle



    I was trudging thru the fragrances and skin care at Marshall's this afternoon and stumbled upon an opened box of this scent. The scent is a thin, horrible aquatic fragrance but the toothpaste tube-shaped bottle, with anatomically appropriate thumb prints in the glass, is brilliant. I almost bought it just for the bottle. Almost.

    Clever! Too bad they didn't have a similar level of creativity for the juice...

    Had I been the one who saw this at Marshall's, I probably won't be able to resist. It's so unique.

    I have to admit, it was so cheap, I did buy it for the bottle.

    This is certainly unique. If it were cheap, it would make a good display piece at least. Thanks for sharing!

    I have to post here, it's a very cheap cologne ..yes COLOGNE.
    After 1 hour as someone said here, you can't smell it anymore.

    I made a mistake buying this..
    The top notes are alcohol then the middle notes are some weak aquatic notes..so it has no basenotes.

    Its really a shame though because I love Puma as a clothing brand, too bad they cant break in with a decent frag.

    I'll agree, bottle is very nice.

    Wow ! I really like the look of that ! ... I think I may just have to get one just for the funky bottle.

    Is it by any chance a splash bottle, or does it have a spray head ? ... (ie. could it perhaps be refilled with another fragrance ??? ... It would be great if it was. That way I could refill it with one of my decants)

    I think the opposite of the general consensus. I like the fragrance but the bottle is silly to me.

    It's a spray. In the exact replica, of the end of a toothpaste tube nozzle.

    See, I think the main reason that I am finding it so captivating and interesting. Is because I am an artist, and it's reminiscent of my tubes of oil paint ! (And I paint mostly "Tromp L'Oeil" murals. Which plays with a similar theme) ... The fact that it looks soft and pliable, although it's in fact ice hard.
    I really like that that is what it reminds me of !

    I like clean and fresh scents. But I also like the heavy, dark woodsy patchouli scents. Keep that in perspective for contrasts of my tastes.

    Create Man is the mot extreme clean you can get (aside from Hugo Element) and it even crosses over into the abrasive degreasers in the disinfectant aisle at your local Wal-Mart. Think Azzaro Chrome's bright soapy lavender taken to the outer most edges of wearabilty. All that and then you are drenched in calone. There's no hiding the calone. After all that comes the breezy, clean woodsy base... and a touch of melon. If only this feeling of cleanliness could last more than a few hours... well, at least it seems to be good for an after workout kind of fragrance. I suppose that's why the bottle is shaped like the shower gel you should use to wash off your BO instead of covering it up. Sometimes you gotta make do with what you have.

    Haters of fresh and clean, run away to your orientals and musks, Create Man is the polar opposite of those fragrance families!

    Puma did something right, I suppose!

    (LOL) HA ! ... I didn't actually know that that is what puma was going for with the oil paint tube. I thought they were going for a toothpaste tube actually. ... But interesting that we seem to be on the same wavelength. ... However I know for sure that I will definitely not be on the same wavelength as far as the actual jus goes !

    Thanx for posting the Puma "blurp" link !

    Mike, if you buy it 'just for the bottle' I am going to do an intervention.
