All these negatives I was concerned. To spend 200 dollars on a Creed get a Whaat not a happy day in my existence. I received the fragrence in four days, paid express ship, it was sealed and smells authentic. I really like Aventus I own SMW and GIT and I am confident can smell a quality issue. I could give this a five star there were No issues I want to see over time how it goes forward first. No issues.
