Now this is just a theory but creed sprayers have a bb in them. I'm wondering if it helps to prevent air from entering through the tube?
I'm sitting next to my cabinet so I actually just took a wiff of my cap for the hell of it hopefully Wednesday will be warm enough in Chicago to pull this one out again..
Always get the big one...regardless on whether or not it is a tester. This is just my own personal opinion.
I only buy testers if they have a cap. Not because I think caps preserve the fragrance, but because I don't like the look of a bottle without a cap.

What's the purpose for the bb in creed sprayers? I've got two theories 1. To prevent air from entering through the tube. 2. To prevent air/juice from escaping.. since creed uses natural ingredients i'm thinking theirs possibly gases created from fermintation. Which would explain why it takes a sec for the juice to come out after you push the spray button.. it pushes the bb down to release the pressurized juice. Again just a theory. Thoughts?

Hello all. I need some opinions on a bottle of Royal Scottish Lavender that I recently purchased.
It does not have a Lot or Reference # written on the box OR the bottle. There is just a year imprinted on the back of the box, towards the top, 2002.
Can anyone else who owns RSL chime in?
How does this happen is supposedly only NM or the boutiques get these fresh batches? How would fragrancenet or any other well known online shop end up with these new batches? You often hear that these online places get stuck with old batches and therefore can sell for cheap but I have a 2014 batch of creed and have heard of many others with 2013 batches of creeds getting then from here. Anyone know how this all works? Thanks!
I think it's reasonable to say fragrancenet sells more 4 oz Creed bottles than NM, Saks, and other retailers in that neighborhood. They push ALOT of quantity, which is why the prices are so cheap. There was a thread discussing how their business revolves around high traffic which allows them to get away with such low cost, where as most other retailers are relying on less traffic but a heftier price. That being said it makes sense that they have new stock, as I could imagine they're constantly re-upping their supplies. Personally I was never concerned with the whole "receiving old stock" complaint when it comes to buying from fragrancenet. I mean think about how many bottles of popular frags such as Creed that they sell. I highly doubt they have anything from 2011 and even 2012 left in their warehouse
But would the creed factory sell it to them that inexpensive? Especially when actual creed stores sell the stuff for 300+???
Any old stock - if non-compliant, for example, will be sold off.
Hey nKelly95. I was reading your posts about your dissatisfaction with your bottle of GIT. I bought mine of fragrancenet and have a similar issue. First of all my box has the same writing on the back as yours. at first i thought it was incorrect spelling therefore fake, but as i read on i realized that it is correct as they have changed the verbage on the back. Do you have a pic of the front of your GIT box to show?
Also, about the scent itself. Although the box and bottle looks to be 100% legit (if it is a fake it's a mighty fine replica) the juice smells different. It is much more green and the drydown isn't that soft ambergris/sandlewood that I got from a sample. I am starting to think that I infact have real GIT but it's possible that 2014 GIT is reformulated. Is your 2014 too? Did you return it?

Here are some more in case those others weren't clear enough. Does this box look like yours? Anyone else confirm that this is a real box. Also i notice that it doesn't mention ambergris on the back anymore. is this perhaps because they no longer use ambergris or perhaps are using some cheap synthetic ambergris in more recent formulas? Sometimes i think I spend to much time investigating this stuff but would like to have piece of mind.
Scroll down to #649 for the back of a new Aventus box. They made minor changes on the front and back (including the wording) of all boxes. I doubt it has anything to do with changing ingredients or formulas. You are correct that you spend too much time investigating this stuff. Just enjoy your juice.
Your box is fine and your juice is real. The only reason I wasn't satisfied was because the whole box change and atomizer change was unknown or at least not discussed here on basenotes yet
Literally right after I shipped mine back someone posted a bottle of Aventus bought from the Creed Boutique and it was the same as mine in terms of what I thought were issues. Following that someone called the Creed Boutique and they confirmed the recent changes. I was so mad that I didn't hear that just an hour earlier, cuz now I still don't have my bottle back yet

I read that already but I guess my concern is the front of my box not saying melliseme and also the word "creed" doesn't have "1760" under it. But the more research i do the more i'm realizing is that my juidce is infact real. I think the problem is that I really would like some of the 2011-2012 long lasting juice and the 2014 batch isn't doing it just yet. I am going to store it and spray iit on a couple times a week hoping that oxygen can turn this into a better and longer lasting cologne.
I know I keep on hammering this but am I the only basenoter with 2014 GIT. it sure seems like it and I am sure everyone is finding me annoying as hell. I just wish that someone else other than me could give an opinion of this years batch. i suppose in time we will hear things though. I will keep you all updated as the months roll by to let you know if this juice opens up and develops over time. Thanks again everyon!
