How should I begin this…
First of all, Aventus is one of the best Creeds I ever smelled!
I can say or write this fragrance suits to everything and anytime!
It is a nice modern fragrance for men.
I would describe it as a fruity - light herb fragrance. It is not heavy or strong!
It starts of with a blast of italian bergamot, french apples and light sweet pineapple.
These topnotes are so delicious, fresh and fruity (also light herb)!
Together with the dry birch and roses makes it so fine and smooth.
I love the middlenotes of this fragrance. Every note plays so fine together…it goes back and forth with all of these notes.
The basenote with Musk, the oak moss and vanilla is very light in the backround…just to keep the top and middlenotes a live (again, very smooth and nice combined)…the basenote is not disturbing or heavy! I was afraid it would be a strong fragrance, but it is not! It is perfect…it is a masterpiece! This one deserves an award, without a doubt!
1 or 2 sprays holds the whole day…longtivity is great…especially on clothes
The design of the bottle is fantastic. A must have for Creed Lovers.
Clean, Fresh and bit Woody...it´s a Classic...perfect for the office or summer!
Fuel for Life is a perfect fragrance for everyday...the lasting power is amazing...and you will get a lot of compliments.
I love this scent...it is clean and smooth...the barber soap smell is amazing...I love it.
I love it from the beginning to the end. It last on me the whole day. No problem with that. I like the topnotes (citrus-oil, bergamot, grapefruit) The basenote is warm and strong. I don´t get it. Some says it last not long enough...they lost their sense of smell. 2 Thumbs up
Back in the days i wore a lot of issey miyake...it´s was a perfect fresh scent, but a lot of people got it now...so it´s nothing special anymore...but it is a nice fresh woody scent...sometimes a bit to sour...not my flavour right now...
@ musclegod 007, have you ever tried French Lover on your skin. I have to say...i bought French Lover yesterday and i´m wearing it today...it lasts very long...maximum 3 sprays on the neck, thats it...it is an masculine, soft and herb fragrance...very gentle. Not for everybody.
@ Vibert, very very good discription.
Let´s see the reviews a year later...not everybody can get this.
In the USA is the releas at fall...
Two thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Narciso Rodriguez for him (or musc for him "parfum oil") is very nice and smooth. It lasts long. It reminds me a bit of YSL Rive Gauche and a bit F.M. French Lover...maybe it is just my nose. Thumbs up!!!
Fresh and Earthy. You can wear this scent the whole season and it last very long. I already bought a bottle...it´s a must have.
For me, Unforgivable reminds a bit of Bond No. 9 "Wall Street"; Creeds "Millésime Imperial" and DKNY MEN!!! I love fresh and warm scents...for that price it is ok! But i also wear my Creeds (for me the best house and the best scents).
Yes, it´s true. It smells a bit like D&G light blue femme. Fresh, sweet strawberries...it is masculine in a young way. I have to buy a bottle of this one. It last very good.
It´s just wonderful, masculine and sexy. That barbershop smell is not really true. You have to wear this scent on your skin. It develops to something other. Must have in your wardrobe.
This is a nice all time scent (fresh and clean), It´s a classic and the ladies love that. I don´t care if that so many guys have this scent...its a must have in my collection and I collect a lot :-)

Just one word "Classic"...ladies love this scent...just one spray...it works in the evening and winter time very very nice scent...it reminds me of first love...
Girls love this scent and me too...nothing else must be said!!!
It is a cool-juicy-aromatic scent...perfect for the summer or for the office.
It starts with a tangy citrus note combinend with fresh cucumber and (sea)kale (some would say watery-melon note).
In the middle note I detect marine notes and Mastic "balsamic with breeze of a leather note" from the pistachios-tree.
And than comes the lavender for the slow-down, mixed with bigarrade from the bitterorange-tree and thyme for the animation.
And for the long lasting power of this scent comes in the basenote musk, vetiver-grass and ambergris.
Maybe Erolfa, M. Imperial, Unforgivable goes in the same direction of scent (or catagory), but they are different.
So I owned all of them, because I like this fresh-marine-woody scents.
Don´t start a Creed vs. Bond battle...I also got 9 different Creed bottles...I must say from Bond I like Wall Street, Hamptons and Bleecker Street...thats it.
Big thumb up.

It is a good scent, but nothing special...it starts with citrus...and gets in woody-spicey basenote...i´m very sad...
BdP is sooo rich and elegant. For the evening is this the perfect scent.
I bought this scent today and it works so nice in the summertime. It reminds me, when i walking on the beach...the Montale Sandflowers is also nice, but Aqua Motu for that price...it is ok.
Fresh seawater, hot sand...it smells like the beach...very nice for a young man...
I don´t understand why everybody don´t like OS. Who often wears (GIT, SMW, M.I.) can smell some similarities to creed scents. Every women ask me what i´m wearing...two sprays is engough...this fresh sweet...and the basenote is more vanilla. Not a everyday scent but good
OV smells so good in the spring time. It´s smells like cut grass. It is so fresh and clean. Buy this one in the spring.
Silver Mountain Water is like a fresh breeze in the air...is like you walking in the mountain (with snow). Clean Water is running down the hills. One of the best summer scent i ever smelled (try also Bond No. 9 Hamptons). It´s quite the same smell.
It´s more for the younger people (i think). The next is Virgin Island Water...i can´t wait for this one.
Millésime Imperial is sooo clean and fresh and it got this fruity middle note. One of the best scents ever (with SMW and GIT).
For me it is one of the best niche fragrance out there. It is green-fresh also warm and smooth. If you wear this scent longer you will recognize that it is more than Cool Water. The lasting power is very good (last the whole day). Best Creed scent and I own 9 different Millésime bottles...point blank.

This one smell like the sea (mare). It is so fresh and clean. Is like you sitting on a beach. It is sooo natural. I think this summer i try this one.
This is my next millésime from Creed.
