Looking for Derby. Also interested in Aventus shower gel and aftershave. I have a bit to trade...shoot me a PM if you have one of these and want to swap (or possibly sell) it.
OMG, how could that happened?
Never mind about the lack of longevity. I think I was smelling it too much.
Is this thread real?
Well the creeds these days have been dealing with quality control issues these days. I have not bought any lately. I hope things turn around.
You should not be happy.
Oh, and VIW? Maybe I should try it now; my biggest complaint used to be that the lime overpowered the rest of the scent.

I really wanted to like VIW. I loved it for the first half an hour and then nothing. Talk about longevity issues.
My VIW has an initial, short-lived burst of lime followed by light coconut. It definitely has overall longevity issues but I still like it very much.
If you are not happy with it, then return it if possible. I wanted to like this one, but longevity sucks.
Mine smells of too much lime. You (we) should be unhappy that Creed can't control the strength of these basic ingredients to a point where there is some consistency.
With a note like lime, there should be no excuse for being able to control it. It isn't as if the lime season varied so much that it caused such a disparity.
It's lack of quality control or reformulation (for whatever reason).
long-lasting Creed = "Creed is using too many synthetics these days. They are really going downhill."
short-lived Creed = "Creed is using too many naturals these days. They are really going downhill."
Perhaps your bottle is from a batch for which smaller limes were used as too many griffins had blocked out the sun in Creed's garden that summer.
Someone probably diluted it with baby oil.
I at one point had a batch of VIW that had a ton of lime, and the tiare flower, sugar, and coconut were all weak. Maybe we should mix our bottles together OP !!
Would it kill creed to stir the mixture a little more thoroughly before bottling ?....because these variations shouldn't be this extreme in scents that are predominantly synthetic like VIW.
