    I really like Green Irish Tweed, but I don't like how Creed ripped off Cool Water, which is exactly the same thing except for so much cheaper. What do I do?

    GIT released in 1985, but CW released three years later in 1988 so it seems more like CW ripped off GIT.

    By the way, what I do not like about Creed is the batch variation as it shows inconsistancy in their products.

    Very frustrating. Not only did my flacon that I purchased not smell like the sample I smelled, it now reeks of pure alcohol. I've written them several times and not one reply. Some great product, but not a very customer-friendly company.

    Creed was much quicker to ship out their inferior product, whereas the superior minds at Davidoff took an extra 3 years to fine tune and perfect theirs. I stand by my original statement

    I need a Creed supply big enough to bathe in. Is this do-able? If it can also be routed through the shower plumbing it'd be a plus.

    I purchased a grey market 2008 batch of Aventus from a seemingly reputable ebay source. I smell none of the smoke or ash or pineapple that so many others have commented on. Could this be a fake?

    Dear Creedy,

    I have a bottle of Original Santal that I haven't worn in a long time. It's about 4 years old, which is probably more in dog years, but I digress. Anyway, my frenemy, erwin_hating_smart_aleck, says that it's just old stock, but he will help me out by buying it for $20. However, some guy I do not know named KrEEd_FaNBoy says that it's vintage, and he will pay me full price for 90% full. But erwin_hating_smart_aleck says that KrEED_FaNBoy can't be trusted, and probably won't pay me, or will engage in e-Bay shenanigans, which as you know are the *worst* kind.

    I asked this old dude, Redneck something, if 4 years old is vintage or just old stock. He gave me some really incomprehensible explanation about something being continuous, and that the fact that there wasn't a clear-cut answer was even more beautiful than Original Santal. Now I'm more confused than ever.

    Can you help me out? Should I sell my bottle to erwin_hating_smart_aleck for a guaranteed $20, or risk a sale to KrEEd_FaNBoy? Or should I just keep it because it's my absolute most favorite fragrance, my signature scent, my go-to frag, and my hot girlfriend's favorite fragrance in my wardrobe?

    HEEEEEELP!

    For starters you can't have a 2008 batch of Aventus, it was launched in 2010.

    I had heard that, but the guy had like 62% positive feedback.
    In all seriousness, I purchased mine in a Kron split. 2011 batch and it's fantastic.

    I recently purchased two flacons of Creed Windsor but the package arrived this morning and when I unboxed it I was surprised to find it contained the actual 1937 Duke of Windsor in full military regalia, I'm a little concearned about this purchase as when I opened the box there was an immediate smell of alcohol.

    He doesn't sit properly on my shelf and keeps falling off, Should I look for a refund?

    He wasn't very happy about it but it just says 'property of Wallis Simpson'

    Is it possible I've been sent a fake?
