    Ordered mine 2 weeks ago from cheapsmells.com.

(again, more or less expected with discounted online stock). Initial impressions were pretty good, with the same quality opening that I had with my previous 2 bottles, which were both from house of fraser (i don't have the batch #s for these unfortunately). The issue for me is with the longevity of the juice... It's been a while since I had the previous 2 bottles, but with those I remember getting up to 6 or 7 hours of projection, often waking up in the morning and still being able to smell it. With this batch, I can barely smell it after 2 or 3 hours, unless I sniff very close to my skin...

    Now trying to decide whether or not to send mine back. Has anyone else had this batch?

    Cheers
    Never tried that batch but 2-3 hours does not seem value for money.

    I havent been following the whole GIT batch issues/variations. Anyway, I found a tester for sell at Scented Monkey I may buy. Would this be a smart move? I have never bought from them so no sure about their stock and how it would relate to any GIT batch issues. Thanks

    For those of you who have received the a3212 batches, is the box still practically all white or is the gold emblem and lettering on it? Also, I've seen that the foreign destined creeds sometimes have the batch number engraved on the back of the bottle with the words "toilet water pgs" also engraved with it. Is the lot number for your 2012 bottles on the back lip of the bottle or is it engraved along with the ingredients and toilet water pgs right on the back? I'm interested in obtaining one of these a3212 batches, but my experience with the "toilet water variants" hasn't been pleasant. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    I had the impression that the batch issues only related to Aventus..

    Although this is in now way representative of all creeds, my two most recent green irish tweeds varied considerably in terms of longevity, however, they smelled the exact same. It is not a fair assumption for me to say that the white box creeds are "weaker" than those with gold accents, but the only bottle I have ever had issues with was a bottle seemingly destined for the Middle East which was the only white box I have had

    Interesting to compare notes... The box of mine doesn't have the gold accents. Do Creed use different packaging for stock that's going to the Middle East? I suppose this is fairly academic, but it is still interesting.... at least to me!

    Recently bought a 4 oz bottle off eBay for $108. It was a bit risky without having heard anything about this seller, but I'm glad I took the risk. An excellent deal on an excellent batch (X04).

    The seller was gift_station, for those who are interested.

    This week I received my first Creed fragrance, a GIT bought in FragranceX, however I was worried with the box that is made from a poor quality paper, like a recycled paper and the cap doesn't fix very well on the bottle, Could you guys say if it's fake??

    ^ Never bought from them but I believe FragranceX is a legit grey market fragrance website so you are ok.

    FragranceX is 100% legit, and they do not sell counterfeits. Enjoy your bottle buddy, it is authentic for sure.

    Ah, that sucks man. I would think that Creed would sell more recent batches than the discount retailers. I would definitely send it back.

    Yeah, I'm surprised. When I got mine from Fragrancent, my batch was just from the previous year. I thought the Creed Boutique web site would send the latest batches.

    If you return it then the next one they send you will smell exactly the same. Dont waste your time.

    On every page all im seeing is the 2010 batch is the worst, and I can see what they are saying because I had a 2011 batch and it was way more fresher and potent.

    Did they actually tell you that couldn't return it? That seems strange coming from such a high end establishment. If you are not happy you should call and speak with a supervisor. Especially if you just received the bottle.

    I took a chance on purchasing a bottle through Amazon (sold by Amazon). It is my second bottle of GIT. I'm 100% certain the fragrance is real, however the quality of the fragrance is incredibly poor compared to my first bottle. It is extremely weak, with no projection to speak of and less than 90 minutes of skin life before I can barely detect it with my nose against my skin. I emailed Amazon requesting an exchange, and less than 3 hours later received an email stating that a full refund was issued. The lot number of the bottle is A3212A02. It was nice to see Amazon stand behind their products and offer a full refund, no questions asked.

    I have the same batch from a different source and it is the best I have ever smelled. Maybe you are suffering from nose fatigue by burying your nose in your arm constantly because I get 6-8 hours + every single time. This is the fourth batch that I have had tried and by far the best in terms if smell (they were all good). The longevity was good with all of them, but the two 2012 batches that I've tried are the most vibrant especially in the basenotes. Unless there were some serious storage issues by Amazon, I would hate to let this batch go. Just my opinion.
    It is good to hear that Amazon refunded your money since you weren't happy though.
