I've used www.fragranceshop.com several times and always had great service. However, I haven't ever purchased Creed from there but I am really close to making one of those purchases. Just earlier this week, I talked with one of their Customer Service Consultants and asked several questions about the authenticity and freshness of their Creeds. They assured that they are all legit and have sat in their warehouse no longer than 2-3 months maximum (of course there is no guarantee that they have sat somewhere else for years). They also stated that they buy fairly small shipments so that they move very quickly and replenish that stock several times per week. They also have a full return policy if you are not happy. They purchase their Creeds from wholesalers and authorized distributors. I'm not sure about shipping to Europe costs, but in the US the shipping is free. Here is the direct link to the GIT.
