    Default Creed - lack of cold weather frags?

    Are there any other applicable fragrances that have a sweetness/thickness(?) to them that may seem good for cold(er) weather?

    I already have Original Santal and Royal-Oud.

    GIT may not fit the 'criteria' of above.

    Thoughts?

    I don't have BdP, but I've sprayed on skin and/or a paper strip thingy while in a Saks Fifth Avenue a while back. I was there yesterday, but I didn't spray that time; I will probably get BdP eventually.

    Sweet/thickness is not what you're gonna get from creed, but they do have scents that you can wear in cool weather:
    Original Santal
    Tabarome Millesime
    Bois du Portugal
    Royal Oud
    Aventus
    Silver Mountain Water
    They have others that are currently discontinued, but they do need to round out their lineup a little more evenly.

    Creed does not have such a sweet/thick scent in their line.

    Original Santal and Santal Imperial are the 2 from my collection that come to mind for a cold weather, warm fragrance.

    I believe that Aventus as always fits the bill all year round, and Tabarome Millesime and Royal Oud may also work.

    If you have a Neiman Marcus around, you can always ask to try and sample

    Acier Aluminium.
    One of the better Creeds imo.
    It's unique and very underrated.

    I find Himalaya quite warming and comforting in cold weather. In fact, I prefer it in winter rather than the warmer months.

    wow I never really thought of it that way. But youre right.
    Creed hasn't really gone much into gourmand type territory, for example. Closest I can think of is Sublime Vanille and even that is a lemony type vanilla and nothing real thick (unless I'm blanking out).

    Not at this point. I purchased by last bottle from Neiman Marcus - thanks to an awesome SA who made a lot of phone calls a tracked one down in a store across the country and had it shipped to me. But that was last summer - I can't image there would still be some floating around, but it might be worth a check at your local NM.

    Damn - You're the one who got that bottle?! I had NM do a check for me and they couldn't find one at any of their stores, and this was a few months ago...
