I would like to sniff it too. I dont know Creed well enough but isnt the name Tabarome labeled onto the decal ?
Thread: Creed Vintage Tabarome!!!
I came across something on ebay that someone in the US may be interested in. I would bid but the guy only ships in the US.
Creed Vintage Tabarome in green flacon.
I'm eager to buy a sample to see what this stuff smells like. I read great things about it here.
Thankfully already have this in my collection. Sure someone will soon snatch it up.
O. M. G. I own a flacon, and I am tempted to jump on this one, too. DAMN!
HMFS. Starting bid 99˘, now at $621.00.
What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!
I used to have 2 flacons of this stuff that I bought from that ebay seller Creeddirect who was liquidating all their Creed stock many years ago. I decanted one out here on Basenotes and sold the other one a long time ago to another Basenoter (DustB where are you??). Interestingly I was going through my old emails and was shocked at how much I paid for each flacon. $150!!!! This was way before discontinuation and before this was hyped beyond belief on Basenotes.
Also a few months ago I auction listed one of my full 2.5 oz testers of Vintage Tab on ebay and it sold for $769.
I'm interested to see how much this one sells for.
It is a great fragrance but the price it sells for is shocking.
It's the Tickle me Elmo of fragrances. That tickles!!!!
Some day's you're the statue and some days you're the pigeon.
The first thing a bidder will have to assume is that the VT flacon has not been tampered with in any way. Next, you'll have to sweat the shipping, which is no small feat. I've had about 4 flacons leak, 2 of them Les Floralies and Angelique Encens, 25-30mls! If the flacon was sealed there is no doubt in my mind that it would fetch upwards of 2K on eBay (it still might!). I noticed TPC was decanting VT at about $25 per ml. I do think it is one of the better men's fragrances I've smelled and worn but it is not for everyone or all occasions.
Is Vintage Tabarome more rare and expensive than Patou Pour Homme?
Hard to imagine anything being $1100/oz being worth that price. Over $30/ml??

We're all in the same game; just different levels. Dealing with the same hell; just different devils.
My swap list
I have some at home, if you want to try it tomorrow. I make fun of it, but truthfully it's a good scent. I just can't imagine leaving the house smelling like it.
I swam competitively when I was a kid and VT has a chlorine-swimming pool note on my skin that makes me queasy. Great to own for reference purposes but there's no way I would wear it.

If i ever get the chance I'll obviosuly sniff this but I'm not going to go out of my way to find a bottle of this stuff. I'm also interested to see what the final price for this is, if someone buys this now, imagine the profit they would make in a few years....
I think it is one of the most sought after discontinued fragrances today?
$910, two hours left. . . have to say, I am tempted. It really is fine stuff, and if this kind of purchase fits your budget. . . mmmmmm. . .
