    Is this gonna be catering to lower end of the sales spectrum with lower prices. As I don't think even their known magnificent best in the business spraying atomizers aren't fit for this dismal bottles ...ohh well, we will have to wait and see.

    This is clearly why Creed phased out a bunch of their old gray-cap EDTs. Probably a good business move, even though I loved quite a few of them.

    I'm curious if Mr. Reasonable thinks these will penetrate the Asian market. That sounds like half the intent. Otherwise, they seem like something along the lines of "Creed does Aqua Allegoria". Looking forward to sniffing them.

    Looks pretty boring to me. And the bottles are terrible. Just as others have said, shalimar rip off.

    Don't see why these would be any less impressive than their other releases. Looking forward to smelling them

    Asian Green Tea piques my interest. Hate those caps!

    Those bottles look terrible! Vetiver Geranium might be interesting, the others sound kind of boring to me. In my experience, drinking Green Tea is more exciting than smelling it in perfume form (Durbano's Jade, Au the Vert, etc.).

    Cedre blanc? Sounds like something we've smelled many times before. But we'll see!

    I agree with the awful bottles...there are a couple that sound interesting, but it sounds like most of them will be a little more feminine than I like. I'm interesting in seeing either way.

    I am a huge fan of Creed's "grey caps." This new line looks like an ambitious attempt to bring the whole idea into the 21st century. Best of luck to Creed. The grey caps are a tough act to follow.

    The Creedification of Creed?

    The distribution here is very limited - a couple of counters with an edited take on the line, basically the 'pop' ones. If they turn up I look forward to checking them out and we'll see if they click with the local market - HK is quite a good barometer as plenty of people from around the region come here to do their shopping due to the tax free status - some, (not all), stuff is cheaper than other ports.

    I have a feeling these new EDT's won't be nearly as good as the old EDT's.
    I agree. I also expect they will cost more than the grey caps.

    Thanks for the info. Apart from the Vetiver, the Green Tea and Lavender fragrances also sound interesting to me.

    The bottles look like a Keiko Mecheri bottle and a Shalimar bottle had a lovechild and gave it a cheap hat.

    LOL!!!!!

    The darkness of the edges almost seems like folded-down wings. They're a bit like bizarre little nestlings!

    I can hear them now - they're cooing for Aventus and Virgin Island Water to bring home some ambergris!

    Those bottles look like Napoleon to me...
    Maybe that was originally designed for Aventus...

    I just took another look at them in the first post. The cap on the bottle does remind one of Napoleon! That's funny.
