I wouldn't start with Creed. Just because everyone here talks about Creed doesn't mean you'll like them. I wouldn't go out and buy 5 of them without ever smelling them. If I were you I'd order samples or go to real stores and smell around and see what you like. If you live close to Neiman Marcus they sell Creed. There are so many other great brands out there to try. Le Dandy is actually a great choice. Have you tried Chanel Egosite or Antaeus? Lolita Lempicka for men? Guerlain Vetiver, Heritage or Habit Rouge? There are so many great fragrances and brands to try out.
