    I hated BdP at first but grew to appreciate it as a cold weather scent. I can see why many don't like it though.
    My biggest disappointment always comes with longevity. If Millesime Imperial could last at least 5 hours, it would probably be in my top 3 easily.
    Don't like Royal Water or Delight.

    For some reason I loved Himalaya at first and now it makes me sick. Santal is sickly sweet and I actually can handle the sweeter frags.

    Funny. Bois du Portugal is one of my favorite Creeds. I can appreciate GIT's quality although it didn't impress me, but Royal Oud was an absolute "meh" moment for me.

    So far the only Creed I could see myself paying retail for would be Virgin Island Water, but I haven't been able to get my hands on a sample to know for sure.

    Never even sampled any. The house as a whole does not interest me in the slightest. There are lots of other frags on my need to sample list before I try anything from Creed.

    Actually I'm one of those people that really dig creed's stuff. Some of their stuff is kinda bland, but works wonderfully for mixing/layering. (SMW and MI are awesome with layering. i interlayer the creeds that i have. BdP+MI is pretty awesome). The only thing i've really been really disappointed is smelling the "pineapple batch" of aventus (i have the E01 smoky batch). Absolute crap compared to what i have IMO. Another thing is the price. the only one i feel is worth buying new so far from what i've smelled is the aventus bottle i have. (bought everything else used on forums)

    Millesime Imperiale. Did not like it at all. Do like most creeds.

    Royal Oud... absolutely loved it, but not for the oud. Green Irish Tweed, Bois du Portugal, Millesime Imperial, Aventus...all very tiresome. Spice and Wood...would be nice if it weren't actually painful to smell.

    Aventus, MI, SMW, VIW and GIT are all masterpieces in my eyes. Himalaya is very good also.

    Original Santal is the weakest link. While the projection and longevity are great, the base is very simplistic. A cliche vanilla/tonka that has been done dozens of times. It is a cinnamon bomb which I like, but what is missing is sandalwood (santal), it's marketing point! It just feels like part of a fragrance rather than a whole fragrance.
