    Default Meeting Erwin Creed Today in Amsterdam

    Today I’ve had the great pleasure of meeting Erwin Creed.
    I was impressed by how down to earth, and gentle this young gentleman is.
    In Addition, I have learned from Erwin that two New Female perfumes releases are scheduled to take place between October and March 2013.

    Fleurs de Gardenia
    This New Fragrance will feature notes of Gardenia, Rose, Peony and Patchouli (and other gorgeous raw materials. ) I have it on my skin for about five hours and IMHO it is very elegant, beautiful, a Luminous Green White Floral.
    I am looking forward to purchasing this one;-)by the way;-)

    Acqua Fiorentina
    This one has been slightly modified, becoming more "airy", therefore making it an ideal catch for 2012 Spring / Summer


    Once again I would like to Thank Erwin for being such a kind /down to earth human being and most importantly for keeping up Creed's Heritage alive!
    One of the most Influential, Elegant and Iconic Perfume Houses (IMO).

    Cheers Erwin,

    I like kind and down to earth people... but why does he look constipated in every photo I've ever seen of him...?

    Fantastic! Glad you had a great time. Is the new frag a female scent?

    Great story - thanks for sharing. Also, the background in your photo looks awesome. Did you mention Basenotes to him?

    Hello fragranceman88 - Well, IMO the Fragrance explores more the feminine spectrum of the Olfactory pallet, however to my nose, I can only say that it is: Green, gentle, and flowery fresh type of scent. cheers,

    I hear the 2012 batch of Erwin Creed is better than the 2010 batch of Erwin Creed. LOL just kidding, Im getting so sick of hearing about batch variations of Creed around here, they all smell the same to me(wonderful). Glad to hear you had a good time, and thanks for sharing your cool story with us!

    Batch variation exists but is vastly overplayed on basenotes. People are sending back bottles simply because they want to belong to the crowd that got a bad bottle of Creed. The stampeding herd of Creed haters is a very strange thing to watch. It's like watching a woman go into hysterics during the Victorian era. It's obvious to sane people she is overacting and playing to the an audience while everyone fusses with smelling salts. I could be wrong of course, maybe there is a very high percentage of basenoters with overactive overies.

    Well said good sir, but lets not join the crowd and derail yet another thread. I was merely venting. I agree with you completely, but I dont want to draw attention from Bonoaminoes cool story. I am a fan of several Creeds and have no animosity towards them, just the overacting haters that join the masses.

    Funny! Oh my god what a coincidence! I met Shaniqua Creed in Queens just the other day. She gave me free samples of Creed Sublime Vanille.

    That's funny you mention your meeting with him. I just dined with him in Paris a few weeks ago. I covered the tab with 26.5 75ml bottles of Aventus.

    I play in his weekly poker game. Lucky for us he is so bad that nobody says anything when he marks the cards with droplets of Aventus.

    I don't really know the guy, so I have nothing against him personally. Sure we made out once and it was a little awkward, but overall, I can't say I like Aqua di Gio that much.

    Well, I just want to thank him for Virgin Island Water. I went nuts for it this year, and it really made my summer.

    Damn! You just let the secret of the House of Creed out into the public. Generations of great perfumers always start (and continue with) with severe constipation !

    Actually, I've heard (from trusted friend SA) it's quite the opposite with Erwin! Panties are said to drop but not shorts.
    Thanks OP for your informative post!
