Now I have to take a stand for this one.
I'm not a Creed disciple, that's no secret and I also find several hypes about their scents completely overdrawn. I find hypes and trends mostly exaggerated anyway. Without wanting to offend anyone, it is often the users who ridicule a brand, even though the product itself is not bad.
The older ones may remember the Opel Manta. A car that managed to fill 2 movies in the early 90's, because since the end of the 80's there was the cliché of the stupid Manta driver named Manni, who drove through the prairie with gold chains, sweatpants and cowboy boots and a blonde dressed up hairdresser named Uschi at his side in the pimped up and lowered Manta. The Manta Jokes were born. Mostly flat and always clichéd like, "I bought a Kenwood plant last week!" - "A Kenwood facility, really? Or "What do you call two guys in a manta ray? Stupid stupid bullet." The shortest joke back then was "...there's a manta ray in front of the university"
Now what's the author trying to tell you?
The car was actually a good solid sports car that the masses could afford and for which they got many extra parts. There wasn't much to complain about on the car itself, he couldn't help it. His competition with Golf, Scirocco or Ford Capri has never brought him such dubious fame. That wasn't a bad car. It was simply driven only by the wrong people, whereby there were enough Spackos, which drove a car of the competition mentioned.
At that time I was still young and without a driver's license, but I would not have liked to sit in such a car, I would have been embarrassed and there were certainly quite a lot of normal people who had a manta ray.
Creed reminds me. Well made perfumes, which can't help it, are often worn by today's men, who only want to get an Uschi out of them. They want to be as cool as the manni with his car and don't realize how ridiculous they are. Like Manni, too. The legend or cliché of the Pantydropper was born and now almost every week we enjoy a new Aventus Kommi, which like the one released and deleted a few days ago only aimed to indignate its wearer and serve the corresponding cliché. I always roll my eyes when a new one comes in, and I'm wrong about the serious perfumes. But it's a fact that many people are only interested in compliments and the external impact of the fragrance on women. All you have to do is read through it.
If my girlfriend likes a fragrance, I think it's very nice, but I wear my perfumes for me for now. Not to please or impress anyone. Creed itself doesn't have much that personally appeals to me, but that's also a matter of taste, I don't like everything from other brands either. But when I smelled the Himalaya for the first time and had it sprayed on my arm, I was immediately so excited that after a few minutes I was back and applied it completely. A few days later he moved in with me.
Many speak of a coolness and freshness that I cannot reproduce in such a way. Perhaps the name leads one to associate this, in my spontaneous statement at that time I spoke of the Erzgebirge. Who was already once there, that it is very beautiful there knows.
Yes, the scent is fresh, but not as clear, not as cool as one would feel the icy air in the Himalayas, but more sedate. I blame nutmeg and pepper for it, which after a not too citric start also start and give the whole a very fine unsaponified barbershop topping. With that we would also have arrived at the heart of this fragrance. Vetiver and juniper berry bind the whole. That lasts quite long, but if the base and the musk begin, it is even a bit better. A very elegant fragrance that you can wear on a suit, as well as on a shirt, but also in a casual look all year round as I think.
The fragrance is adult, not playful, relatively unsweet and this may explain the ratings here, because perhaps one or the other after Aventus more promised. I also believe that this is not for someone built in 2000.
Some may also criticize that for the price of the fragrance is nothing special, but everyone can hold that as he likes. I don't know the fragrance twin mentioned here, but otherwise there don't seem to be many alternatives.
I was surprised myself that I liked the fragrance so much, because I had few expectations, but maybe it has to be the same. A bit disappointed I am, however, that I do not know at all whether I have caught a good batch!
Before there are any answers... that was irony.
Embarrassing was the Manni and not the car at that time, like today some vehicles and not the smell.
The Creed mutates to the Opel Manta I think is out of the question, because only a few people outside the forum know the brand, but we should make sure that it doesn't say "Creed carrier in front of the Uni"
at some point... "is there a Creed carrier in front of the Uni"
