Sorry to hear you didn`t like the Creeds. Both Erolfa and Tabarome Millesime are some of my favourite fragrances. Yes, Erolfa smells a bit strange if you only smell it from the bottle. You have to test it on your skin, to get the real experience with Erolfa. I absolutely love the smell of real sea-salt/ sea-breeze, and I think Creed has manage to capture that experience in Erolfa. Tabarome Millesime is also a wonderful scent. English club luxury at its best! Fresh and warm at the same time. Extremely elegant.
