    Default Finally got to see what all the hype is about with Creed

    Its been a month of hunting for a new scent, since I cant get my beloved Gucci Envy anymore. I really glad I found this community & very thankful for everyone's input and responses. So far I've purchased Floris Santal, Kenzo Woody, Prada PH Amber Intense & another bottle of Gucci Envy. This is definitely a new addiction that I don't see myself getting bored with any time soon.

    So everyone on here talks about GIT, Aventus, etc....At those prices, I definitely wasn't going to blind buy anything. Luckily, I live in Metro NY and have access to the Creed boutique and all of the high end department stores in NYC. I finally made it to the Creed counter at Bergdorf Goodman yesterday & it was a fantastic experience. The woman at the counter was incredibly knowledgeable with the entire Creed line and was very enthusiastic in helping me make the right choice. She did make my girlfriend a little uncomfortable though, when she repeatedly kept smelling my arms, lol.

    I basically smelled everything they make, including the specialty/royal selections. I'm glad I finally got to smell the Aventus especially. The first spray smelled great, but it just didn't dry well on my skin. Neither did the GIT. My two favorites were the Royal Oud & The Tabarome Millesime. There was no pressure at the counter to make an impulse purchase & she sent me home with a few samples of each.

    The Tabarome Millesime has ME written all over it. It is definitely what I will be buying & probably wearing for a lifetime. Plus Humphrey Bogart & Winston Churchill used to wear the Tabarome. I guess brilliant minds think alike.

    I pleased you found fragrances you like. I own many creeds and like them very much too. But please don't be taken in by the Churchill/bogart etc stuff. Tabarome millesime is less than 15 years old. There was a different fragrance called Tabarome which is very good - it is discontinued now- Churchill didn't wear that either, despite what sales reps may say. Creed are notorious for propagating these kinds of untruths as a marketing tactic.

    Good fragrances though.

    I've heard funeral homes can't keep Creed in stock, because all the dead celebrities are wearing it.

    most of the information suggesting that a celebrity wears a certain fragrance is false.

    I find Creed fragrances tend to grow on me over time. They never blow me away on the initial first impression, but I always come back for more.

    Agreed. Both Tabarome Millesime and Royal Oud are very classy, and especially Tabarome Millesime is very underrated.

    Not just wearing them, but the bottle is buried with them.

    I own several Creeds and I like them...but I don't like them as much as I used to. I really like Aventus, Jardin D'Amalfi, and Bois du Portugal. The rest are ok. Quite a few of the more recent releases are shameless rip-offs of designer fragrances.

    Creeds are awesome. I've liked all that I've tried and most are bottle worthy. I'll never understand the Creed haters. I've as yet to find a Chanel I like but only feel apathy towards them.

    Creed is a house I need to know better.
    Beyoncé told me she does use her fragrance. And so did Madonna.

    I wear Royal Delight sometimes largely because I believe it was Julius Caesar's favorite, but I don't really like it all that much.

    It's great you found two frags from Creed you like. Also, you must have been lucky with the SA, Creed SA's are notorious for being very pushy and talking down their noses to people who don't kow about Creed. Anyway, hope. Ou enjoy you bottle purchase, when you decide what one to get

    Glad to hear you were treated well.

    Creed seems to be the ultimate love / hate experience, something like the fragrance worlds Woody Allen.

    I like a lot of the Creeds myself, and I have around 10. Good times!

    I have been wearing Creed for about 10 years and still love them. I don't really care for Aventus so don't worry if it didn't work for you. Royal Oud & Tabarome Millesime I do like also. Good luck and welcome to the addiction.

    Also I wouldn't pay much attention to what celebrities wore Creed. I think it is mostly marketing. Yes Humphrey Bogart may have purchased a bottle of Tabarome Millesime but who knows. He may have used it for a week and then never used it again because he was really into something else.

    Make sure that SA databases you - puts your information into her computer. There will be a grand opening of a new CREED section in the next month or so - and supposedly Oliver Creed will be there signing bottles.

    +1. Actually, both are underrated. I have 10 Creeds myself and truly enjoy them all. Wearing RO today. Excellent longevity and projection even after applying at 7am this morning. Im sure you will really enjoy them, I know I do And Welcome Anton!

    Congrats on your sampling and finding of two fragrances you like. I'm a huge fan of the house of Creed and enjoy most of their fragrances. Recently got a split of Jardin d'Amalfi for my wife and she loves it.

    Interesting how you liked Royal Oud and Tabarome Millesime the most. Those aren't really my favorites, but glad you enjoyed them. My three favorites are SMW, Windsor, and GIT.
