Basically, it reminds me of something you'd get from Bath and Body Works, only with slightly better ingredients. Luckily Creed still uses wonderful spray mechanisms... they have the nicest "pshing" and apply quite smoothly (I've not had a Creed since finishing up, trading off, or ebaying my stock 5-6 years ago; bnoters in the know remember Creedirect, the former creed distributer in NYC that got rid of its entire stock in the early/mid 2000s for next to nothing; many of us ended up with 15-20 different creeds for a song).
Why, then, do I have this one? Well, girls, you'll be jealous again (maybe), but I got a 30ml bottle, with cap, for the shocking sum of $1. Yep, a whole buck (okay, about 100 yen). My secret supplier comes through yet again, though honestly were this anything more than $1, and were the weather here in japan anything less than extremely hot and humid... I'd probably have passed. In this heat/humidity, a sweet fruity floral acquatic is about all one can manage. I nearly killed an old woman with my Ungaro II this morning (poor thing).

Ahem ahem. stop the presses... rambo and rach are channeling CREED!

Anyway, going out tonight... it's hot but not as humid as usual, so Rochas Moustache comes calling!

Is this the new one Rach? The Creed counter token middle aged woman informed me that it had just been rereleased 2 weeks ago and that they had just gotten it in.

AFAIK, Acqua Fiorentina was released back in 2009 or so. So, does that mean it was discontinued and re-released within two years? I have no idea, but I trust anything that comes from Creed or its employees about as far as I can throw it.

David Bowie once, maybe, happened to be walking past a creed counter, got sprayed with Silver Mountain Water as his security guards whisked him away... and VOILA... on the creed site it tell us "Bowie wears SMW!"

Anyway, it's definitely the scent you're talking about... a fruity/green apple aquatic. It's "pleasant" as most creed are, but $260 pleasant makes me meeeeh. I just wish to reiterate (brag) that I paid $1 for mine.

This perfume shop in California that sells thick, overbearing scents is unapologetic about their celebrity customer history:

Yep, that's what I was told.

I hope they weren't. There is no better way to feel awful than to open that $150+ bottle of juice absolutely to hate it. I've certainly done my fair share of blind-buying, but luckily it was always at very drastic discount. At TF's prices, I'd better be sure I absolutely love it first.

It all depends on the budget I guess. At least these are two solid scents -- just not up to everyone's alley (esp. Tobacco Vanille).

And he said "big bottles".

Strange, there hasn't been any of the Tom Ford Private Collection that I've really liked. I take that back - I liked the Bois Marocain.

IMO, many of the best Private Blends are the ones that are discontinued. Moss Breches and Purple Patchouli are both fantastic. I also like Japon Noir quite a lot. And anyone who's a real lover of gardenia has to try Velvet Gardenia! (I am not a real lover of gardenia, but I certainly respect TF for putting that on the market.) I'm a big fan of Noir de Noir as well, although that's obviously not discontinued.
