    Re: Best Creed for a College Student?

    I have to agree with everyone else, Creed Aventus is probably your best bet. Of course there is also Green Irish Tweed. I would have suggested MI as well, but you said that wasn't sweet enough.

    Amouage Reflection
    I really love this one more and more as I wear it more.
  5. Re: Fresh, modern men's scent in a hot, sticky, humid country...

    I'd definatly suggest checking Creed's Original Vetiver out for really hot days. I really starting to enjoy Millesime Imperial as well, just not sure if it'd get cloying in extreme heat.
