    I wouldn't get it either. I agree with The_Good_Life and would be just as if not more happy with Molinard's Habanita.

    Like Jrd4t, I too now dislike the company. I won't be considering anything by the brand in the future.

    If you don't like Creed don't buy it. But understand that in two years, the VT that they're selling now will be a lot pricier from TPC or private collectors. Check out TPC price on Creed Cuir de Russie. Contrast their current price for VT with the cost of the Creed offer with reusable atomizer.

    There are plenty of collectors and decant sellers waiting for the VT to disappear from the Creed site so they can cash in even more.
    Ha, so brilliantly stated. People who whine about fragrance companies making money on their own good work - you can only wonder if they're under the delusion that companies like Creed are public services. Of course they deserve to make as much money as they can. That's what business is about. Congratulations to them if they can get consumers to pay top dollar. If any one of us owned a fragrance firm, we'd want to charge as much as the market will bear, too.

    And yes, VT is a superior investment. Jump on it. You won't be sorry later. You can even just wear it, instead of being compelled to sell. It's great stuff.

    Curiosity: how big of a company do people think Creed is? How many employees?

    Time will tell I suppose. Your appearance concurrent with the release of the special Vintage Tabarome offer and your singular focus are interesting. Perhaps you're the "anti-Karl55."

    Don't suppose you own any Le Labos or L'Artisans? A little Dior Homme? Perhaps some A*Men?
    Bond No. 9?

    Just a bunch of bottles of VT, huh?

    How come there are only Creed "will you buy it" threads whenever they are close to launching a high priced "exclusive"? Come on people, we need one for every Guerlain, Dior, Chanel, Bond no. 9, etc. high priced exclusive as well ! (which would be a lot of threads actually..).

    no im afraid im not Evil-Kinevil or whomever. could i use as an example the man who was completely enamored of a particular pipe tobacco. he was obsessed. he purchased it regularly for years and smoked it as well. eventually he had several hundred cans of it when his doctor told him to quit. so he did- but this tobacco stopped being produced. ingredients necessary to its uniqueness were unavailable and pipe smokers went mad. paid hundreds for one can. he sold most all of it and bought a gorgeous car for cash. its a changing world. when Chanel Pour Monsieur and Anteus were reformulated i loaded up too. but my obsession continues to be VT. see i go through a bottle a year, only now its over 2 grand for the bottle, and im pissed but good. its like someone saying " well there is no more milk, but for you my fellow i have some for $52 a gallon " i wont buy . had i known wines i drank with my friends 25 years ago which we paid $175 for would be worth $26,000 a bottle today, what would i do. there is no correct answer. i didnt ask anyone for crap here. so unless my doctor tells me i cant wear scent any longer, ill just keep doin what i been doin. see you around.

    Golly I'll have to think about that. I've been afraid to break the seal on it even. Now that I've got it though, well, the world is already soiled with it, so I'll probably use up the mud for the pleasure.

    I am very pleased I bought a NEW 250ml flacon a while ago for $250. From a Basenoter too! I love the stuff. Sometimes I will spray a bunch on just before I hit the sack. I love it. When I run out,yes I will buy again.
    Still haven't figured out what the leather thingy is for.

    With this kind of price tag you could, if you really wanted, just buy a sample for $15 bucks or so and then spend the remaining money on a full gas chromatography reverse engineering from a good lab and have a compounding company make it for a fraction of the price for the rest of your life :P. But share the formula with us, too! Reverse engineering breaks any trade secrets claims and that way the original could be around forever!

    Hmm, come to think of it, if I ever get enough disposable income I might do just that. Publicizing the formulas of the classics would go a long way towards preserving perfume's heritage from narrow minded accountants and other meddlers.
