    Default Do you wear your CREED frags often?

    I was going through my collection of fragrances last night and it struck me: I own quite a few Creed frags (seven), more than a lot of Creed fans do, but I almost never wear any of them. They just collect dust, but I don't want to get rid of any of them. In fact, the most valuable one I had - the old Tabarome - I just recently swapped! Sure it smelled good, but I never wore the damn thing.

    I really like all of the ones I own - GIT and Original Vetiver being my favorites - they smell really good, but I never have the desire to actually reach for one and wear it for the day. I always end up grabbing one of my more mainstream designer frags to wear on a regular basis. I don't know why this is.

    Do any of you have a similar situation?

    No--I love wearing mine. Use 'em, don't keep 'em--that is my motto.

    I wear mine often. I find that I don't easily get bored Creed fragrances as I do with most other fragrances.

    Hi, been lurking for a while but thought I'd reply to this one as Creed Himalaya triggered my interest in fragrance.

    Hadn't really heard of Creed but Himalaya suited my skin so much that I wore it daily for several months (just one spray at a time to keep it subtle). Then bought a bottle of GIT and spent the next six months alternating between them for daily use.

    Now, although I still love them, I've started experimenting with other houses just to add a little variety.

    Never had your situation as yet, shamu1. I love them all with a passion and wear them regularly.

    I only wear the ones I've got if and when I feel like it. I've no set rotation, I just go into my cupboard and take out whichever takes my fancy at that moment.

    I wear a mix, but a Creed makes it in rotation at least once a week. Often twice.

    Default Re: Do you wear your CREED frags often?

    More than any other house, unfortuneately (for the wallet).
    I probably wear each of these at least 3 times/month:

    Windsor
    GIT
    Selection Verte
    MI
    EROLFA
    Currently wearing: Royal Mayfair by Creed

    Depending on the bottle, between 3-20 times per year.

    Default Re: Do you wear your CREED frags often?

    probably 5 days out of the week. i purposely keep two days open to test other fragrances in hopes of finding something I like more than Creed.

    though this has been going on for about 12 years and I haven't found anything yet. :-)

    Default Re: Do you wear your CREED frags often?

    No. No offense but this house didn't really work for me. I only have one. Of all the Creeds I tested, I decided I liked SMW the best because of the black current note but that goes away so fast and I'm left with the ambergris/musk base. That's boring to me. I'm almost out of the juice and will be giving my bottle away to a friend. I tested MI and GIT extensively and also a lot of the Millesimmes and the citruses too but again was just bored.

    Another Creed I like is Acier Aluminium but I only wear that in certain moods and moments. I don't think I could pull that off outside. The rest of the particular lot that includes similar ones to AA (Royal Delight, BdP, etc.) is not something I enjoy either.

    I'm happy for those who are truly able to enjoy the offerings from this house.

    Default Re: Do you wear your CREED frags often?

    I have Acier Aluminium, Himalaya, Tabarome Millesime, Original Vetiver, and G-I-T in rotation, and i wear them quite often. Himalaya and A-A most often, Original Vetiver and GIT only during spring/summer..

  16. #16

    Default Re: Do you wear your CREED frags often?

    I have a good (not crazy) number of things to rotate - Creeds (I own seven at the moment but I know many more) are being used at least four days a week. Windsor and GIT mostly, recently.

    Believe it or not, I have a similar situation as you Shamu. I own SMW, OV, Green Valley and MI. They all enjoyed a vigorous use period, and all (the MI being a 1oz is practically gone) are about halfway gone. But now, they all feel a bit bland and get monotonous over the course of a full day. So yes, while I like them all, they don't get nearly as much play as most of my other stuff anymore.

    They often smell fairly good but don't satisfy. I think of them as pleasant accords inside of mostly structurally poverty stricken fragrances. I often feel as though I need to use 10 mls a day to get what I'm looking for.

    Bois du Portugal and Vintage Tabarome still work. Green Irish Tweed as well, although I use more Cool Water. Acier Aluminum feels a few sprays as well.

    Default Re: Do you wear your CREED frags often?

    I've got a lot of them too, but I seldom wear them. Mood doesn't call me to them as much as it calls me to others. I don't know why. In some ways I'm sure it's the same reason I want special reason to wear things from my favorite houses, L'Artisan and Diptyque. Maybe it's that in the morning something casual, unserious, un-special, and less expensive (usually) seems more accessible.

    I wear GIT the most often. Second is SMW and lastly OV, even though it's probably my favorite amongst the three. I reach for it the least. I also like Windsor but I only have one or two wearings left in my decant which I want to save.

    I wear a Creed scent at least once a week.

    I forgot to mention that for me too Bois du Portugal and vintage Tabarome have been the most frequently used, just like Pluran's experience. (I don't have GIT or Cool Water.)

    I use Millesime Imperial a lot. Windsor rarely. Vintage Tabarome even more rare, I feel like I'm spraying on liquid gold when I use it.

    I have different frags in my collection. I rotate them regularly. So I don't get to use my Creeds very often. But it doesn't mean that I don't like my Creeds anymore.

    I don't use Creed frags, but I've experienced this with a number of frags. When I don't reach for it a lot, that's how I know it's over.

    If you stoped wearing your Creed frangrances, its probaly cause you have developed a more sophisticated nose. Congrats!

    Thank God for the miracle and go on and explore Chanel, Guerlain, Annick Goutal, etc.

    I only own Creed MI, but I wear it a fair amount. I generally only use it on a special-type occasion or a big night on the town or something (not to go to the supermarket, for instance). I am heading to Vegas this weekend and I plan on wearing that each night i head out.

    Two others i have earmarked for purchases are GIT and Bois de Portugal. Again, I seem them as more fitting for things like weddings, dates, a more upscale night out, things like that. Partly this is economical - at those prices I don't want to go blowing through a bottle recklessly. I want to feel i got my money's worth for the outlay. Probably will take the same approach with any future niches I buy.

    I wear a Creed about once a week during the day. Probably more often than that at night, and from that, I'll wear into the next day if it's really working for me. I really favor the EDTs - that citrus is really great at night. When I wear them during the day, I often bring the bottle with me and refresh as needed - very satisfying. VT for special occasions. BdP when I get the urge.

    Yup, getting the urge for Santal Imperial right now!

    I had bottles of 3 and several samples. I can't remember wanting to wear any of them more than once, except for sampling purposes in cases where I thought I should give the frag another shot.

  29. #29

    Default Re: Do you wear your CREED frags often?

    I wear them 3 - 7 days a week, I suppose. MI is the most often worn, followed by OV and SMW.

    I can't say I get tired of wearing them, however I've become accustomed to them. Like the Buddhist concept of attachment, this results in demanding a better fragrance as well as being critical about them; finding things about them I don't like or wish were better.

    The quest for the grail continues.

    I've gone through periods where I didn't care to reach for them. I asked myself this same question, Why doesn't Scentologist wear these more often. So, I started grabbing for them again and realized the satisfaction I've been missing out on. I truely love them but I try to rotate fairly.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?
