    Default Creed Virgin Island Water 2008 batch code from Fragrancenet

    So my recent haul from fragrancenet got me a Creed Virgin Island Water with a 2008 batch code, which i was pretty surprised about.

    With all the hype of batch variation with Aventus, i was wondering if I struck Creed gold with this vintage juice as I have only tested VIW once from a sample of an unknown vintage a while back. Or has VIW remained unchanged for the most part over the years?

    Thanks in advance from a long time reader and first time poster.

    Very nice! I just ordered a bottle of VIW from Fragrancenet, hoping to receive the same or similar.

    I received a 16A01 batch a few weeks ago and it is beastly, very impressed with the balance and the longevity

    If the cap is all blue, it should be the god Limey batch, better performance, and longer lasting. The all blue cap is the grail Virgin Island Water.

    Good looking out!! I just bought one. This will be my first Creed frag ever, so I'm hoping for the blue cap.
    I sampled it this summer and was pretty blown away by the quality. I was really hoping to find a great summer scent, after using almost 2 bottles of DHE this past season and I believe this will do the trick.

    Yes, the cap is all blue except the top portion where the crest is. That part is silver. I'll throw a few pictures up later on. Thanks.

    Eh? Are Creed using different cap colours to represent different batches now?
