    TdH smells great, but it disappears completely from my skin and clothing after 15 mins or so. Then I read people praising it's longevity. It's a mystery. Yes I've tried different bottles, but still it's just there then gone in a flash.

    i think that is because GIT and MI are far more versatile, both in wearability and age-profile.

    BdP is as good as GIT and MI (if not better), but most guys under 40 balk at it because it smells so "mature". that, and it's suited for cooler weather/months, unlike GIT and MI which can both be worn year-round.

    is it necessary for you to go into every thread about CREED and make a worthless comment like this?

    you don't like CREED, we get it, now move on....

    ...as far as I understand everybody here is free to react on every possible thread. You like Creed; I don't...does that make your comment less worthless than mine...?

    as it pertains to a thread, yes, my comment is more useful than yours because I was responding to the topic at hand.

    if you have something to say (negative or not) about Bois du Portugal, knock yourself out. But you continue to go into threads about specific fragrances to bash the Creed house in general with broad and obtuse comments.

    one Addict was enough. Mazeltov!

    maybe you can put in your signature how much you hate Creed. that way everyone can see it and you can save yourself the effort of clicking on threads you know you are uninterested in just to spread your haterade.

    were the purchased by a huge luxury conglomerate?

    stuff like acqua di parma never used to reach my shores but i believe the tod's ceo bought the brand which might explain the availability now..

    When I was making the decision to purchase a full bottle, it came down to a choice between BdP and Invasion Barbare. BdP just seemed more genteel and rounded, and I have not regretted that purchase ever.
    perhaps we need more boardroom frags too coz this is where i seemed to have always spotted it being the number 1 choice.

    I just wanted to send some love to BdP. I think it's one of the best Creeds (along with GIT, BdG, and REL).
