green irish tweed is my second favorite. probably their best seller.
aventus is both overrated and overhated i think. its pleasant and unique and lasts a long time
you could also try the spice and woods and royal oud, but that ventures into the more niche side of Creed and so you should definitely sample first
also i would add that i would never buy MI, original vetiver or original santal, because Unforgivable, mugler cologne and mont blanc individuel smell nearly identical for a fraction of the price. the creeds are better quality, but not hundreds of dollars better, which is the difference you would be paying.
This is the best advice! I was sampling Tom Ford Neroli Portofino and although I thought it was very clean and good, I actually preferred Mugler cologne. Not the same scent but, close enough to compare apples to apples imo. I wish I had known that before paying $ for the Tom Ford sample. I wasn't looking for a "similar to mugler style" scent.
For instance... If I knew GIT was similar to Cool Water, I would have tried a free sample of Cool Water first to see if it was up my alley.
AVENTUS! ........ Yes, over hyped like a starving man eating a McDonalds double cheeseburger. BUT... that's why I did NOT like it the first few days I tried it on. Then I started to appreciate it for what it IS rather than comparing it to what people said it was. It is a most unique scent to me. Although, compared to most here...My nose is still virgin.
I like unique. People say I'm unique so it might work on me. If there was a fragrance that smelled like the air right before it rains, i'd wear it.
If there was a cologne that smelled like a campfire with fresh pine trees dripping of sap surrounding, I would buy Aventus. Which is why I like Aventus.
