Thread: 3 Best Creeds

  1. #1

    Default 3 Best Creeds

    Okay, Creed fans! Having never owned any Creeds (and only having sampled ONE spray of GIT, which I loved!), what, in your expert opinions, are the 3 MUST-OWN Creeds? I probably only have enough money now to afford only 2, but I MIGHT be persuaded to buy a 3rd someday.

    Bois Du Portugal
    Himalaya

    Skip GIT, it's dated, skip MI and SMW unless you like fruity.

    Himalaya for sure, then Original Vetiver or New Tabarome since these are readily available at under $100 online. Those three are fundamental to me. Or you could go for vintage Creeds and pay top retail dollar.

    Himalaya is what finally hooked me on Creed.

    BdP may be very interesting but you will pay about as much for 1 oz of it as you will for a 4 oz jug of the others.

    Himalaya - took a while for me to appreciate this one as it's quite involving

    Special mention to GIT. I must be one of the only people on here that's not a fan of Bois Portugal or Acier Aluminium. Both too heady for me.

    Replace GIT with Himalaya, and you have my recommendation as well.

    IMHO...
    Angelique Encense
    Bois du Portugal
    and the third is a toss up between AcierAluminum, Royal English Leather and Cuir de Russie.

    Green Irish Tweed

    I've samples of many of the Millesime creeds, excluding Himalaya snd Silver Mountain Water; however, at a local store, I once sampled SMW and found it as interesting as GIT.

    Snap.

    The longest lasting (I find) are BDP, Tabarome Millesime, Himalaya and Royal Water.

    Thanks for the feedback, guys! *After careful consideration, I've gone ahead and ordered GIT and OV online (for a very good discount) and should have them both by the middle or end of next week.

    I hope to purchase a 3rd Creed in a few months (most likely Bois du Portugal, based on recommendations, reviews, and the Frank Sinatra connection!), when my bank account recovers!! *[smiley=embarassed.gif]
