    Question Obtaining the full range of Creed men samples in a small village in the UK...

    Is that possible? I mean I don't have access to any store that could get them for me and I live in a pretty isolated area right now. I contacted Creed and they recommended a company which sends samples but it costs £3 PER SAMPLE! Any idea how I could get the complete men's range or at least the best ones for men sampled and sent to me without having to pay a fortune? Thanks!

    GBP 3 per sample is not exorbitant, in my opinion. Original Creed samples are quite generous in size which enables you to try them multiple times to evaluate them. You needn't necessarily get the entire line samples. Instead do some research on the board and try to narrow down your choices. Good luck.

    Still, if I decided to test say ten, that would cost me £30 plus postage! I managed to get free samples from Penhaligon's and Floris but when I contact Creed... Well, they only send free stuff to corporations I think.

    Pretty cheap. Ten (original samples) are almost a small bottle of perfume. A bargain.

    The samples which I got from Penhaligon's or Floris were certainly not a small bottle, they were pretty small and that was all I needed. I don't need huge samples!

    I think you're trying to persuade the wrong audience. Tell Creed about your experiences with Penhaligon's and Floris.

    The house's products are expensive.

    Sorry for being (presumably) too obscure. One sample is not a small bottle. Ten ([original Creed samples] put together) certainly are. Quantity-wise. With the added benefit of a fantastic variety. ~L30 for that? I repeat myself, a bargain.

    If I were you I would postpone discovering Creed's for later. Many of them are not young people's fragrances, and they will also spoil one's taste for many other deserving brands which hitherto seemed decent.

    Money is not an issue (Well, not to buy the actual product! BUT to BUY SAMPLES, gnnnnnnnrrrr....) As for discovering Creed now, well, I really do not have a "college" taste, after all I wear Floris 127 during daytime now...

    Well would it not work out cheaper to actually buy a train ticket and go to Les Senteurs and sniff in person?

    Perhaps it would, but right now I am away from any train station or car. No, I am not in the Amazonian jungle, I am in Wales!

    Where did Creed refer you? I'll pay the 3 Euros

    My experience has been that the Creed SAs in stores that sell Creed are pretty forth coming with the samples once they know you are a buyer. They are generous size samples too- appx 3ml or so. This is where face time counts.

    But pushing the SA I deal with for 10 at once if I haven't made a purchase would be a bit much.

    The problem is there isn't any shop that sells Creed out there, there's barely even a decent supermarket. I buy my food at the market and order stuff by mail. This is of course only a temporary residence until I return to University next year which is in Canterbury.

    Well, from Canterbury it's just a hop to London and you can sniff them all there at Les Senteurs, F&M's etc. pp.

    Escentual in Cardiff used to stock all the Creeds but I suspect they don't any more - you could call them and ask. Otherwise, depending on where in Wales you are its a trip to Liverpool, Bristol, London, (Other Big City) to sniff or searching around the decant sites to look for someone who will sell you those samples at a lower price.
