    Just PLEASE do me a favor and don't become a Creed "Fanboy" who interjects their love affair with Creed into every thread.

    Post: What is your favorite rose fragrance? Fanboy: Well Aventus isn't rose, but it is the best frag I've ever smelled and I named my firstborn Aventus.
    Creed Fleurs de Bulgarie and Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgarie are pretty good rose perfumes though! (Sorry you were asking for it, but I totally getcha!)
    oh look, I have a signature

    Happy to be here. I was gifted Aventus last year (after having it on my wish list for years) and immediately fell in love. I revered it so much that I used it very sparingly, but wished that I could use it more. I knew the fragrance world was something I wanted to be more involved with, and decided to finally take the plunge. All of these were blind buys (except the Aventus), but I did do as much research as I could. Honestly, this is probably enough juice to last me a lifetime. I wanted to get frags that were distinct enough that I could have a range to choose from depending on my mood and the season. So far, I'm happy...

    BdP 500ml
    Royal Mayfair 500ml
    Aventus 100ml (atomizer behind it is full too)
    Millesime Imperial 50ml
    PWC 250ml

    I admire Creed. Though I am not enamored or obsessed with the brand.

    Looks nice. I think you've made Erwin Creed very happy.
