    I have Virgin Island Water and Silver Mountain Water both amell exactly the same as the testers I tried in various stores before I purchased, I am really pleased with both, they were an amazing price and for me the scent is perfect, exactly what I was expecting from having sampled the fragrances previously.

    I use CS all the time, for a variety of different scents, and generally I don't think they can be beatten on price; great service too, always very fast!

    Yeah I am going to order another batch of products off their website today. I went into Boots on saturday with a list I wanted to try out and came out with some favourites I am going to invest in. Its a shame they don't have a creed there to sample so I think I may blind buy some GIT or Millesime Imperial now knowing they are pretty renowned at Creed products also.

    Just a little heads up, but Cheapsmells is now Allbeauty. I think they're the same company. I bought Royal Oud from there and had absolutely no trouble.

    They have Aventus in stock in 120ml and 30ml. £150 for the larger size. Great value for anyone in the UK. You can email them and they'll gladly tell you the batch numbers.

    Wish they would resume shipping to the US. Used to buy hard to find scents there at great prices. (325)

    Have to say I have long been a fan of this site and have actually got all of my current Creeds from there.

    However, the price hikes have started to take the piss. The price for 120ml Aventus is really just cashing-in on the Christmas rush - they sold it for £30 less a few months ago, so why do they sell for so much all of a sudden? This makes them uncompetitive (for Creeds) and will look around more in future.

    Aventus from them is still about 50 quid cheaper than from Creed. They're a lot less 'grey' than some of the other sellers who scratch of serial numbers etc. GIT for £114 for 120ml with the serial numbers intact? Bargain!

    It's true, they are still cheapest and do have excellent customer service teams. I wouldn't normally say a word against them, but they have been creeping up in price for Creeds constantly. I just don't get why. Soon they will be selling at retail prices the way they're heading. Oh well, I suppose they are not 'cheap smells' any more!!

    They probably get a lot of traffic from this forum. Lurkers always outnumber posters and we have been plugging that site a fair bit. Also, the Xmas frag-buying frenzy is coming.

    Talking of plugs, I see they now stock the hard-to-find Loewe 7 Natural. (I tried this myself and liked it but longevity and sillage were piss-poor).

    Hi Marais,

    Yup I totally agree with you re the seasonal fragrance buying frenzy and the number of lurkers that probably get forwarded to that site. But it still appears that they are cashing-in on the trend. Not really in line with a 'cheap' marketing image that they (had) for their company.

    The demand for discounted Aventus has always been very high and originally they were selling out within 24hrs. When I got my bottle about a year ago it was £125 and they were also selling them on Ebay under their other name Beaumont Trading or whatever. They'd sold out on Ebay but were still showing it on their website so I ordered one. The next day I got an email saying it was actually out of stock and my money had been refunded and they'd put me on the notification list as they were getting some in again soon. So I eventually ended up with a bottle about a week later but it just goes to show the demand for it. Add that to the fact Creed prices keep going up they know they are still a fair bit cheaper. To be fair they at least bother to reply when you inquire about batch numbers. I noticed Loewe 7 Natural too and have a sample ordered from ALZD Germany after first considering it as a blind buy. Marais's comments have deflated my expectations somewhat about that one but I'm hoping it lasts longer on my skin if I do indeed like it.

    You are right there. Maybe that's why they changed the name. Although 'Cheapsmells' had obvious drawbacks as a name for a business selling luxury products.

    I got my sample from them too and it saved me a bad blind-buy. Anyway these factors vary a fair bit between individuals, so good luck with it.

    Well I suppose the ultimate test will be to see when they sell out of it. Usually it's gone within a flash (literally a few minutes), but so far it's been there a few days and no sign of it being sold out.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Update: it's still there on their site, so clearly not sold out just yet!
