Creed stores. (haha j/k) Saks, Neiman Marcus, etc. in the USA all have them. Maybe in Canada Holt Renfrew? I'd suggest doing a google search for their Canadian distributor and seeing if they can tell you points of sale outside the USA. Also maybe check on www.basenotes.net I seem to recall at least 1100 "where can I buy creed" threads with tons of information.

I'm 90% sure I've seen Creed at Holt Renfrew in Vancouver

Generally speaking, Cuiron is unavailable unless you run into some luck. The closest alternative is Mr. Blass.

Holt Renfrew - they have separate counter for Creed

Good to see you've been paying attention.

Based on a spray on the wrist, I got orange citrus and cumin. The latter was a bit too strong for my taste and kept me from buying it. I'd like to do a full wearing at some point to really try it out.

Smells great but has a high evaporation point.

Perhaps. At least this thread will give you an idea of where they might be found: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/262...ecommendations

Hermes: Terre D'Hermes Parfum only, it is just that much nicer than the EDT Ted Baker Skinwear I think of it as a summer version of TDH, lighter and quicker to fade Aqua Di Parma a classic that never goes out of style. Guerlain Vetiver another classic

I haven't posted on this thread for a long time, but currently, I've whittled down TONS of bottles to these ten. Some are different from the original top 10, due to extreme cost (Malle Bigarade concentree), discontinuation (Helmut Lang EdC and EdP, Bois d'argent), or just because I've expanded to try some different things (chamade, for example). Many/most of these are "perfume lover perfumes," and as such may not be general hits if you don't "love" scent. BUT, if you do, I suggest you give them a try. 1. Eau d'hermes (stinky citrus... other contenders were Malle Bigarade Concentree, Cartier Declaration, or Guerlain Pamplelune) 2. Tabac Blond (leather... other contenders were Knize Ten, Parfum d'empire cuir ottoman, Chanel cuir de russie, etc.) 3. Jicky (oriental... others were Shalimar, Opium Parfum) 4. Chamade (floral chypre... others were Mitsuoko, Miss Dior, Givenchy III, Chanel Bois des Iles) 5. Aramis JHL (gentlemanly evening scent... I don't know why I like this one so much, but it's really a knockout) 6. Moustache de Rochas (gentlemanly day scent... other contenders were Chanel PM, Monsieur de Givenchy, etc.) 7. Guerlain L'instant Pour Homme (sweet gourmand... other contender was Black Orchid) 8. L'artisan Parfumeur Voleur de Rose (roses and patchouli... sadly longevity isn't good, but I just love this one. Other contenders were Montale Aoud Queen Roses, Montale Black Aoud, Montale Patchouli Leaves, Tom Ford White Patchouli.) 9. Eau de lalique (fun, easy to wear, day/warm weather scent... other contenders were Creed Erolfa, PdN Cologne Sologne, TdC Osmanthus, Bond no. 9 Fire Island) 10. Vetiver Extraordinaire ("woody oriental," dry, non-sweet woods... there were never really any other contenders, but perhaps something like Montale Chypre Vanille or L'aP Timbuktu.) NOTE: Were cost simply not an issue, "Chamade" (Guerlain) would probably be replaced by Guerlain's other masterpiece, "Vega." BUT, Vega runs $400 or more, and Chamade is wonderful enough as it is.
