How does this compare to Lynx Africa?
So many ignorant comments

If you can't afford the high price. Maybe have a neutral opinion on it.

Many people are talking about the cost.

In fact, many of these items have similar comparisons to buying a eco friendly washing machine.

Albeit it is for different purposes and one for luxury.

But as a collector myself.

In most cases, it's actually cheaper to own a high end bottle of aftershave

You just need 1 spray and that spray will last the entire day.

Whereas you would need about 4 5 for cheaper scents that will disappear after a couple of hours.

Of course this does not apply to all of the high end stuff, some are better than others, that's just part and parcel of any business

Maybe instead of complaining about the price save up and treat yourself to one.

It is a lot of money but it's like me going on cheaper aftershave posts and complaining it's nasty and cheap.

There are massive differences in the sourcing of these scents

A Bentley offers no additional functions to a Skoda for instance but one is more luxurious

I think some of you need to treat yourself and spend a little bit of money on yourself

Clearly you are all very selfless and have other priorities to tend to.

But stop with these immature comments already

Wow expensive!
Get that coat out
It’s a bit more than my budget allows,...! 🙃🙃

I'd expect 2.5 litres of the stuff for that price
That use to be the price for the 500ml a couple of years ago. Creed fragrances are not worth the price tag anymore. Most of them have been reformulated and weak and just don't smell like they use to way back.

I use to get 120ml Creed fragrances from USA for around £70 way back in the 00s.
Have to ask, how many of the folk who buy this stuff would actually recognise all of the individual smells if they were given a bottle of each to stick under their nose??

Would also be fascinated to know what it costs to manufacture this stuff, when you exclude the fancy bottle, the fancy packaging, the fancy marketing and the fancy mark-up??
Has the OP just discovered this or what?
Don't see the point in all of these separate posts for basically the same product. Why not put them all in the same post instead of clogging up the deals section?
For 423 I'd want apollo creed
Is it really 8 times better than a high street designer fragrance...?

Will i get 8 times as much women and attention...?

Will 8 times as many people be chocked out in the office...?

Need to know ASAP so i can be 8 times cooler!

You have no idea how they make perfume

You don't appreciate the amount of work that goes into it.

You probably have never owned a nice bottle in your life.

To put things into perspective

It takes 240,000 hand picked jasmine petals to yield just 30 ml of pure oil.

Perfumes are one of the oldest luxuries on this planet

i wear aventus and occasionally green irish tweed also by creed. you have to try it to recognise how good it is. lasts all day and people have on the street asked me what fragrance i am wearing because they want it. (maybe they will baulk at the price like many on here) it lasts a very very long time. if i wear it when out shopping or something 9 times out of 10 some stranger will compliment me on the smell.
@Kyballion - I would suggest it is less about cannot afford and more about perceived value for money.

From a personal point of view, the last thing that I would want to do is go out to a restaurant/cinema/theatre and find myself surrounded by people exuding wafts of anything throughout the evening. I would also not like to sit next to someone wearing a smell that I disliked. So, for me, anything that hangs around for as long as you suggest the likes of this does is an anathema to me.

Yes and this is more than a respectable reason not to buy one

Heck my partner hates it, she still prefers the I have been in a cave sweating all day smell

But perceived value can only be fair when you understand where its value comes from

Comparing cheaper goods is not a fair comparison because the cheaper ones to me are a huge scam, it's literally bottled water.

Some of these ingredients are so difficult to produce and source it goes without question the cost.

You have a legitimate reason not to use it

This sounds like sales talk. After all, fragrances are about the smell rather than the ingredients that go in to them.

You can have a £10,000 fragrance that's using the best ingredients money can buy but if it smells like a bottle of Joop then its not worth anything.

@Kyballion - I am with your girlfriend on this, although perhaps not the cave smell.

I like people to smell of clean people.

Sounds like ignorance, smells like it too

Smells are subjective

However, sourcing and production cost greatly vary.

This is where the value comes in

A bottle of EDT will never contain the same amount of oils as a perfume

It's quite simple

It's the same reason people spend more money on a 2 L engine

To anyone who might be curious, here is what appears to be the skinny on the costs involved in a bottle of smell.

"The cost of the liquid inside the bottle is backed up by an article that appeared in a French magazine Le Nouvel Observateur with two of the world’s most renowned perfumers Dominique Ropion* and Anne Flipo* where it says that the value of the fragrance concentrate in a €100 bottle of perfume is between €1 – €1.50."

The article is here - finefragrancecollection.co.za/tru…me/ - and before you write it off as nonsense from someone with an axe to grind, note that the information came from what I would argue is two people who should know.

How this article writer has completely ignored any of the other actual costs is beyond belief. It is clearly written with the objective to sell their own brands.
They clearly have ignored the true cost of sales when it comes to business expenses.

If they are importing certain natural resources, the cost alone for importing, paying the farmer, then all of the instruments involved in turning these raw materials into oils. The cost of employees for the farming business if they are invested in them, the cost of transport and employees, the cost of the perfumery to setup shop and pay for their employees to do the research, testing, then all the product marketing and other costs are endless.

As someone who runs a few business's online, this cost breakdown is nothing but a fallacy, the tax man would have a nice giggle at the site of seeing a profit and loss chart like this.

Mass produced and cheaper aftershaves might cost this much, but just making oud alone is firstly a craft and one that takes a lot of time and knowledge.

This is like when people compare the cost price of components for iPhones and other technology completely forgeting all of the manfacturers machines that were built for the sole purpose of building 1 component.

Hot from me. I've not seen this size below £440, although I don't normally buy this size.
I wouldn't worry what others think or say, they probably think nothing of spending a grand on the latest Iphone, then upgrading when a new one comes out.
For me personally, Creed Aventus is THE best scent out there. I've been using it for years and usually buy 100ml which lasts me about 12 months. I've tried all the fakes/clones and none come close to the original.

Before I duck out of this discussion, I really have to point out your comparison is somewhat spurious. Please explain to me how anyone manages to make what can laughingly be called a profit from a 99p wristwatch when it too requires high technology to provide the components, even though the scale of manufacture is. perhaps, different from Apple's.

On that point I shall depart this thread - Smell Ya Later!!

Once you start a business and become a bit financially adept to the true cost of sales then you wouldn't find this spurious in the slightest

What the article writer has done has spun a cute a little web and tried to write off the majority of expenses nearly all companies would need to get started.

Company A wants to farm Jasmine.

When you look at the production cost

You don't ignore the majority of expenses involved

Where are the land bills, the land costs, the production costs, where are the employee expenses you know all the basics that one would need?

The cost per bottle is not the same as the total investment the company has put in

Usually it takes year before any one of these companies start creating profits

Company B is going to be paid £1.00 per chip, they contract with apple to produce 1 million chips

Company B needs to Manafacturer the machinery, have the space, the employees and distribution lines, testing equipment, r & d and other expenses

Where in this cheeky little article does it show these costs?

It shows a very simplified and warped view of the true cost of any business

In fact, it's all a bit of a lie because the majority of perfumeries would not Manafacturer their own bottles

So how would they even know what cost the bottle would be?

It's a ridiculously bias article and holds no weight by cherry picking 2 perfumes

Makes no sense
You can buy 423 magic tree's for this. All of which last longer than one day and come in a multitude of nice flavours....

You sound like a perfume ramper or fanboy.

Creed ltd makes millions in profit a year and they sell very few bottles. Tells you all you need to know about the markup per bottle..

No doubt it is quality stuff but like all perceived luxury.. its importance varies amongst people. Remove the label/price and would it be as important??
