No - they really are pretty great fragrances. There's nothing wrong with you. Creed was kind of my "gateway" house. From there, the whole world of niche perfumery really opened-up to me. Before experiencing the house of Creed, I really had no idea perfumes could be so absolutely gorgeous. Welcome to the dark side, my friend. Keep exploring and you'll surely discover several other houses which give you the same reaction you seem to be having to the house of Creed. Try some Serge Lutens and Parfumerie Generale next. You won't be disappointed.
