    I'm interested in a split of at least 50ml. If anyone in the USA will be hosting a split at this time and if it is allowed on Basenotes, please PM me.

    I also confirmed this over at Neimans funraiser! The SA said that they should have a tester this friday, but unfortunately I'm going out of town.

    The SA at Neimans excitedly told me they were getting Windsor in the fall (she did not say what sizes). I attempted to feign interest as she was telling me.

    from what the SA told me, she said that they would only be releasing the lareg flacons for $600+ and would gauge whether or not they wanted to release the smaller sizes. She seemed to know what she was talking about as she was the fragrance floor manager...

    OK. Just so we're clear, do you know whether this will be another limited release or will the flacons be made available indefinitely?

    I called the Creed boutique yesterday and they told me they will only have 100 flacons and 70 of them are reserved. Make that 72 now.

    I wouldn't buy whatever the boutique says now to create hype, especially after how they handled the first "limited" release and then vintage tabarome. Unlike the first time around, these new flacons aren't numbered. I think they will keep on milking it until they can while selling the story that they just have a few to sell.

    I don't need a flacon but I know someone who does. Its not my type of fragrance but it is quite different from everything launched recently and the quality of the pine, eucalyptus and gin notes is fantastic.

    Windsor is a total hit .. its made $$$, generated interest, sold out fast in the northeast and a lot of people like it. Even in my neck-of-the-woods it has generated a lot of interest in the perfume crowd.

    That's because Creed is just an evil company. Up there with BP and Blackwater.

    From what I heard, they have this strategy to "make money" while simultaneously "giving their clients what they want". It's reprehensible, really...


    sarcasm aside: they did not know the first release would be as successful as it was. they will make more if and when they feel like it. it will never be part of their permanent line. i wouldn't bet on it for at least 5 years after this batch is gone, but if they do sooner, then great.

    The exclusivity and stories don't really effect me. I'm glad they are reintroducing this and I wish they would do it with other like Feuille Verte and Vintage Tabarome. Also for the people who bought the numbered bottles the first time around I think they paid less or the same than these new flacons so its not like they are getting cheated unless they simply bought it for investment purposes. I enjoy Windsor as a fragrance. Yes the price is high but I look at the per ounce price of the flacon and also the ability to split a flacon and the price becomes palatable.

    So why do you think they won't bring back Feuille Verte? The evidence points that it would be a hit as well.

    I'm hoping that they re-release this for their 250th anniversary (this year??). I've heard that they will re-release something from the vault in celebration and it seems that this would be the best choice.

    Was this a fragrance with lime and mandarine in it? I had a 10ml decant sent to me about 4 years ago with another purchase of a Creed. I know the decanted fragrance was very nice at the time and I was told it was a limited edition, so unless Creed do something else with these notes, it must have been this one.

    Too much oakmoss in the base - Aventus contains like maybe 1/4th the oakmoss quantity of FV. I like Feuille Verte more than Windsor...its more my kind of scent and would certainly like to see it 'reissued' more than Windsor.

    I'll second that, I just want a whiff, although a decant would be fantastic, unfortunately even the perfumed court doesnt have it

    They certainly could bring it back, as any amount of genuine oakmoss in it was only playing a supporting role.

    The major-dominating-oakmoss wasn't in the base, it was a synthetic "aramis oakmoss" type note that was very very present and prominent in the top half of Feuille Verte, which is where I think Feuille Verte really was masculine and green/leafy. And subsequently, the top half is what I somewhat grew to like in Feuille Verte, even though it's not my style., but in the base there was nothing I smelled which resembled (wow just got a strong and distinct olfactory hallucination of Feuille Verte) true earthy oakmoss absolute. just an incredibly high quality Jasmine absolute, which was way too feminine and way too conservative for me.

    It could be reissued, and many of the fans of true "older style" Creed scents, who are also fans of wearing outright feminine scents(okay Feuille Verte's top is quite masculine, but that drydown is dead old woman), would buy it all up at prices twice what it went for in 2006.

    It's basically a fresher/brighter/leafier Aramis out of the gate, with very good use of Galbanum and other green notes, with very little sweetness (vanilla is used extremely lightly).

    Then it goes thru a HUGE change, and the Aramis-Oakmoss all subsides, and it becomes this uber-conservatively-feminine rose/Jasmine scent that smells like an extremely rich old woman. It's Jasmine exceeds Jasmal like 2000 times over in quality, and the Rose note is tart and alive just like in the private collection "Fleur de the Rose Bulgarie", but it's just so overtly "old woman" in my book, after the Oakmoss note and Galbanum get out of the way..

    The aramis oakmoss smells totally different to me than the FV version which actually smells like a clever combination of Evernia Prunastri and Moss de Chene, with the Chene component probably responsible for the dense woody character and the Prunastri for the parched woody character. Another element responsible for the great green leafy opening is the excellent Lime extract used in the top notes. The base is predominantly a rich top quality jasmine base. However how they used oakmoss as a top note instead of a basenote sounds like an intriguing engineering question..

    I know pigasus27 on youtube is hosting a split. He has done the video but hasn't uploaded it yet. He says he will by the end of the week. I'll drop the video link here once he ups it.
