Well, you certainly started right at the top. Most definitely one of my favorite Creeds and for many others as well. Creed is supposedly made of all natural ingredients, which I believe. I wish I could help you more Akahina, but I have the same issue. Some days I will wear Aventus (or any other Creed) and smell it all day and other days I will put it on and very seldom even get a whiff. But that's just me.
