    Question Creed Original Santal CM4117T01

    I just bought a 1.7ml of Original Santal from Nordstroms today and checked the batch code. It is CM4117T01 from 2017. Did I just get ripped off with a 3+ year old bottle or hit the jackpot? I hear pre-2018 Aventus is the good stuff but anyone know about Original Santal? Would you enthusiasts return for something newer or keep it?

    Keep it and enjoy it.

    I'd keep it. I haven't heard that there's much variation in Original Santal batches to worry about.

    By the way, Olivier Creed says the clock doesn't start ticking on a fragrance until it's sprayed.

    Even if you had the opportunity to get a newer one? I can easily order another on Nordstrom and return this one.

    Well, it looks like you would be happier trying to get a newer one, so whatever you feel best about.

    My preference would be to purchase earlier bottles.

    Are you saying you would prefer the 2017 over a 2020?

    My preference would be the earlier bottles closer to the original release. If you can find those bottles for a good price, it's worth owning.

    Ultimately, you'll have to decide what will make you happiest.

    If it was indeed a close to the original release (meaning pre-2016, when there were still the 75ml and 120ml bottles) I would keep it as OS that stuff lasted all day but this is newer stuff (50 and 100ml).
    My Top '11':

    - Paco Rabanne: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - Antaeus (vtg)
    - Azzaro: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - Armani: AdG Profumo
    - Jacques Bogart: Furyo
    - Guerlain: Héritage (vtg)
    - Thierry Mugler: A*men
    - SA: Al Basel
    - D&G: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - YSL: Kouros (vtg)
    - VC&A: Pour Homme

    The 50 &100ml have weaker sprayers.
