    If you can find a Sephora with the full PB line, you can test in relative peace and calm. Not sure how common of an occurrence that is, but the downtown San Francisco Sephora has almost the full line, and I would bet many other major cities do as well.

    Madhat Scents - a Basenoter and all around great guy - is also flourishing as a perfumer. Ash and Rose is something special IMO, but there are many well-received frags in his line.

    You, North Americans, act like there's no world outside. Prices in Europe for any Creeds are a lot lower.
    Aventus Cologne is 50% less expensive here, so it makes it quite a decent purchase and, thus, you might see so many people hyping it

    I own Tom Ford stuff so, y'know, I'm not immune to buying "overpriced" fragrances. That said, I wouldn't want Aventus Cologne even if it was free. It's not an exciting or interesting scent regardless of price point.

    So you can buy a 4oz bottle of aventus for the equivalent of $90 USD?

    I can't say buying Aventus would ever amount to an exciting purchase for me, at whatever price. And no, I don't hate the stuff. Just find it dull and uninteresting, with an obscene sticker price.
