    Except that most of us DON'T use the same cologne daily. The Creeds I own represent a fine and long lasting investment when used in rotation with numerous other products.
    Don't buy Creed - It's absolutely your prerogative, but IMHO you're missing out on some great experiences.


    As far as ADG is concerned I'm largely apathetic towards it. I've never understood why it sells by the truckload just as I don't get the loathing. I wouldn't entertain it personally (it's just not interesting enough) but certainly wouldn't mock or stereotype anyone for using it.

    Taste is entirely subjective.

    If they like it and you don't ... too bad. What are you gonna do ?

    Their taste might be "BAD", but bad compared to what ? To you ??? At least they are enjoying it.

    I dont like AdG, but why the hate ?

    Dont like it , dont use it, don't complain either. CAUSE REAL MEN DO NOT COMPLAIN !

    One advice is to drink less Hatorade.

    And this dude just kept flirting with the waitress. She would come over to my table, chat for a while... and then complimented me on not smelling like that dude. What was I wearing? Creed Himalaya. I know it wears close to the skin; but she said she smelled it when I got up to go (ironically) to the bathroom.

    Anyway, I told her that the men (or one man) was wearing Kouros. I heard her ask the man a bit later... and he loudly screamed "HELL YEAH! GIRL, YOU KNOW IT's LIKE CHICK CATNIP, RIGHT? SNIFF DEEPLY BABY!" to which she responded "That gentleman over there told me the name. And honestly I'd rather say "No thanks" to continue to smell that garbage." and stomped off.

    Jerks can wear anything... and regardless of the fragrance, it just makes them a cologne wearing jerk.

    Actually, I think ADG is a very well done fragrance. I has some but could not wear it often--just doesn't suit me. But if you like it, I say rock it. It smells good!

    I'm not too old to remember that there were fads and trends that many subscribed to, when I was in my early twenties, nor the daft things I said/did/wore back then. Nothing has changed. These guys are just going through the usual rites of passage, and good luck to them.

I only will buy designer fragranes that you can purchase either at online places like fragrancenet.com,fragrancex.com and many other online sources or at department stores like Macy's. I just would never purchase a creed no matter how great the fragrance is.

    You're using way too much if you can go through 100mls in 3 or 4 months. you'd need to be using nearly a mL a day, which is 12-14 sprays.
    ***For sale:

    Iris Pallida 50ml

    Ungaro I 75ml

    and more!

    I just don't quite get the sense of "real man". "Real men" do not wear AdG, apparently, but they wear pink, and talk like truck drivers... Whatever, really.
    Mate, get get a grip. It's not the fragrance that makes you like everyone else, it's what you do, you say and you are.

    Plus, this forums has always been using moderate and respectful language. I'm sure everyone would appreciate an effort to stick to that.

    +SculptureofSoul's comment. The only problem here seems to be OVERUSE! Yeah, it's kinda like posting ALL IN CAPS! We like to enjoy the fragrance ourselves, but most noses will switch off/become less sensitive when a scent is constant. In the FAQ section of the Gendarme site, there was a comment to the effect that if you can smell it yourself, it is not right for you. I am not sure I completely agree with that, but I try to apply judiciously, especially for the heavy hitters.

    In my days, especially during my youth, ADG was undergoing a quite opposite process: as it was worn mainly by the rich kids in my school and in my circle of friends, it almost instantly became the ultimate frag-related status symbol, coveted, admired and extremely upmarket, maybe suitable for the same kind of wannabes (but wannabes with plenty of cash from mommy's and daddy's huge bank accounts)

    You only buy Creed ?
    Wow...., then you are missing out on a good number of other, designer or not, great fragrances...!

    I have to say, you are really depriving yourself of the best frags on the market. You are also missing out on the frags that get the most female compliments.

    A lot of people like it, that's why it sells well. Asking basenoters what they like is of very little value if you want a cologne that most people will find pleasant.
