    Default Older Bottles- well not that old

    Hey all. Just received 4 partial 75ml Creed bottles of Silver mountain water, Himalaya, Millisime Imperial, and Green Irish tweed, and a few fantastic decants. Very happy with the purchase. The reason for the post is I hear all this buzz about reformulation and laws about certian ingredients changing some years back. I was wondering if any of y'all know if these particular lots are the old formulation or new, and what is the difference? Are the older batch numbers longer lasting? Should I use less? Thanks all for your input.

    Try not to get caught up in the batch thing. It's a deep rabbit hole.

    Congrats on these acquisitions!
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Thank You. I was wondering, this is my first time wearing silver mountain water. Does anyone one else think it has a harsh vibe similar to printer ink toner? Maybe it will grow on me, but as of now I don't quite understand why this is a popular fragrance.

    That sounds about right. That one doesn't work for me. I've had better luck with Himalaya and Green Irish Tweed.
