    Default Original cologne not available at http://www.creedboutique.com

    Original cologne is not available anymore at http://www.creedboutique.com.

    Anybody knows what are the plans for this one. Are they gonna offer it in 2.5 and 4oz or it was simply one time offering in 8.4oz bottle for their 250 yr anniversary.

    When I spoke with Creed Salesmen at Neiman Marcus they told me this is the bestselling one from all Royal Exclusives they got in 2011. So it makes no sense to discontinue fragrance.
    Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.

    They may have it in the actual store but not listed online. You would have to call them.

    Maybe, but it was listed online before, so I wonder why they removed it?

    It was only available in the 250ml bottle so maybe the are out at the boutique. The had plenty at Neiman Marcus Dallas when I was there a couple of weeks ago. I doubt they will release in smaller sizes.

    It is maybe worth $50. I found it very boring.

    I heard it had to be pulled because the name was found to be someone else's property. It will be re-released with a new name at some point in the future. I felt a bit underwhelmed to neutral my first go with OC.

    The Niemans in my area still had it as of two nights ago. I'd call the boutique though to find out what the story is.

    All of these last-minute and post-release name changes lately! The make me wonder if the fragrance industry is under the sudden onslaught of something like the trademark equivalent of patent trolls. There never used to be so many recalls - especially so soon after things came on the market. What's up with all this?

    In any case, OC just didn't thrill me. Royal Oud is my current best recent release, along with Aventus, as well as White Flowers. I did get to sniff the 250 year fragrance, and it's good, IMO. Very fresh, very nice, very smooth. Not $1750 smooth in my budget, but I could see a 1%-er liking it enough for the buy. It is certainly a good Creed, to my nose.
