    Yeah - I didn't check which batch it was - probably left over from last year 'though - we're a bit out of the way here!

    The longevity of Aventus is quite impressive.
    +1 Aventus gives me 4-6 hrs projection and about 12hrs longevity and not a skin scent but 1 foot bubble in 8-10 hr and 6" one in the last two hours of dry down and if I spray my hair is 12 plus ...love it

    I have only tried git and aventus and for me aventus which I love the smell stayed closed to the skin on me didn't project well on my skin at all but git projected pretty well and I got about 8 hours of longevity

    Aventus, Original Santal, and BDP seem to last longer and have better projection.

    Original Vetiver is very weak.

    Yesterday I had a disturbing experience with Creed's Jasmin Impératrice Eugénie, my all-time favorite go-to fragrance. I'd bought a new bottle and compared it to the one I've had for years. GONE was the luxurious drydown, gone the longevity and certainly the sillage. The top and mid notes were still there but not the deeply narcotic, indolic aspects of the Jasmine! I assume this is a result of reformulation. I searched online for a pre-2010 bottle. Found nothing identified like that. My question: is Creed still Creed? If not, how do I identify and buy my vintage Creed?

    Who has 2013 bottles and thinks they project well?

    I have a few Creed samples of Aventus and they are all over the place..
    Good, Bad and Great...
    The 2013 bottle I bought I sent back to Amazon..
    I tried it for a week and was just weak and very little scent IMHO

    Other than 3 of them (VIW & Zeste Mandarine Pamplemousse, Himalaya), I get good to great longevity from all other Creeds.

    The longest IMO:
    Bois du Portugal
    Acier Aluminium
    REL
    Millesime 1849

    Royal English Leather personally gives me excellent longevity and projection.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    So basically you're saying that your dislike for Creed has nothing to do with their actual fragrances, but with the "douchebag frat boy" posts on basenotes, and marketing. Right then. I'd love to have a look around your house sometime and see all of the things you own from companies that don't use bullshit marketing to sell their product. Are you free on Sunday? I'll bring the olives.

    I like Creed fragrances. They're simple and versatile and let's face it, batch consistencies aside, they do smell good. Longevity and projection are fine. I hope the brand is re-positioned in an understated manner for the long term future of the company.

    It's a date!
    But don't turn up wearing Aventus or we'll get off on the wrong foot.

    Aventus and Original Santal are pretty killer. Silver Mountain Water has excellent longevity, but average projection.

    GIT, SMW, Aventus, MI and Royal Oud all last for me the best part of the day. I agree Original Vetiver seemed to phase out after four hours.
