    Default Which year did Creed change the sprayer?

    I'm waiting for a Creed bottle from year 2013. When did the new sprayer appear ? I like the new sprayer much better than the old..

    Can't say for 100% certainty, but I think it was late 2014?

    A piece of Creed trivia that wouldn't hurt myself to know either.

    I have a 4 oz Himalaya and Royal Water from 2013 both have the old sprayer. Oldest bottle I have with the new sprayer is a 2014 GIT.

    Damit.. Seems like I will get the old one then.. All I can do now is to hope it will work well. The old style sprayer hasn't always been 100% perfect :-/

    Seems like it hasn't been all that long ago, but then, time flies!

    If I had to guess, it seems like it was about 1 1/2 to 2 years ago that talk of the sprayer changing was being discussed on Basenotes, and I seem to recall that the new sprayer first started showing up on Aventus bottles? Not positive about that, though. But I remember some people thought they were getting fake Creed bottles because the sprayer stem was so noticeably shorter.

    I think it was around this same time that they fixed the caps.....to where they weren't as notoriously loose as they used to be. I think some of them actually snap tightly now and you can actually pick the bottle up by the cap! I first noticed it with a Royal Mayfair bottle, and it was about 19 months ago.

    I'd say late 2014 was about right. I bought a bottle of Aventus in August 2014 from Nordstrom and it had the old crimped sprayer.

    The next three Creeds that I bought in the late 2016-mid 2017 timeframe (all of which came from FragranceNet) had the new-style sprayers.
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)

    Ironically I now miss the old caps. The new cap is so tight that it often is hard work getting it off.

    I think they changed to a shorter snub-nose sprayer in 2014. Then went to the current no neck version the year after that.

    I decanted all of my older Creeds into generic atomizer bottles b/c every one was crap. The sprayer of my GIT squeaked, the Aventus sprayer rocked back and forth like it was going to break. The lids didn't fit, they had poor manufacturing standards. I bought a Himalaya bottle after they changed sprayers and it works fine so they must have fixed the issues. Funny thing is, I listed the old bottles empty on Ebay and made an embarrassing amount of money...people will buy anything.

    Late 14 I'd say. I have Aventus 14L01 with the older sprayer but have 14M01 with the new style

    I can still remember how much fragrance which could off from the bottom of the nozzle, onto my fingers and right down my sleeve and onto my watch even. It was a shame to have to wash all that lovely scent down the sink. But I had good smelling hands even after the clean-up!

    I preferred the original sprayers -- they would cover a wide area, a bit like paint
