    You can still find this pnlibe, but Im not sure if it has been discontinued, maybe someone else would know.

    I cannot see them discontinuing this one as its a old school classic. And it's still been sold on their website amongst their mens range: http://www.creedfragrances.co.uk/pro...rances-for-men.

    I guess its just not as popular as other fragrances at this moment in time.

    I own it and IMO is really not a big deal, I've failed to understand the fuss around it.

    I like it, but it seems a bit stuffy. Doesn't seem as smooth as other Creed's

    for whatever reason it reminds me too much of Pierre Cardin Pour Monsieur. which I happen to prefer, and that's a good thing, given how much less it costs me to wear the Cardin. BdP is a nice one, though.

    The OP is right, though - Bois du Portugal was the toast of the town just a couple of years ago. Funny how it seems to have completely disappeared.

    Come to think of it, where's all the Terre d'Hermes love? Terre d'Hermes still seems to appear on a lot of peoples' favorites lists, but the number of "I'd sell my grandmother for a bottle of Terre d'Hermes" threads seems markedly reduced.

    This is my power fragrance. I wear it when I want to be sexy and intimidating at the same time. It is gorgeous and atavistic and so quintessentially masculine.
    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.

    Yeah, I bought a decant back in aught-9, as we used to say in the old days. It's good old fashioned stuff, and interesting with the sneaky jasmine, but man is it strong.

    Love it, so much better than the fruity, watery, more recent stuff I can't seem to tell apart. Certainly a powerful classic, lasts forever.

    I wore this recently after a long time and I still love it. I need to start wearing it more. It is very strong and lasts forever. Great stuff.

    A total classic, but not an everyday frag or as versatile as others for me.

    I could be wrong, but compared to GIT, Aventus, and MI (in that order), the hype surrounding BDP is almost non-existent. So, I would say it's good for the hype it gets.

    Also, Amouage. Amouage has been around for decades, but it was almost never mentioned back in '07. I think 2010 was the year Amouage really exploded into everyone's favorite lists.

    That was before Aventus came out...that probably occupies the 'Creed slot' in many collections.

    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?

    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..

    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).
