    Talking Finally Got It

    Hey guys I finally got my bottle of Green Irish Tweed...Yes Green Irish not Green Frich. It smells great and I love it. I can't wait to add more Creed scents to my collection.

    Any suggestions of what my next one should be?

    GIT is ok...

    I would go for Santal Imperial or Neroli Sauvage. Two very overlooked, but loved, fragrances.

    Third choice would be Original Santal.

    I went to a Perfume store today and tested ALL the Creeds and I don't see what all the fuss is about. It's good no doubt, but nothing to go crazy over.

    I would say order a bunch of samples and spend time with them - who knows what you may like - you can order many samples from perfumebay.com

    At this time of year, go for something spicier, warmer: Bois du Portugal, Baie de Genievre, Acier Aluminium. But I agree you should get samples and test for yourself.

    I personally can't wear any of these three you mention. In all honesty, there is only about 4 Creeds I care for and only about one or two I couldn't live without.

    Come back to them in a few years...you never know. But it sounds as if Original Vetiver would be your thing then, and perhaps Green Valley. You probably know SMW and Himalaya already. Neroli Sauvage! Oh, and from the older ones, do try Epicea with its fresh pine note. I find that one deserves far more attention than it gets.

    yes, get samples. Even if you gave us info about yourself it is very difficult to recommend scents. If you specifically want a certain type of scent that would be easier (e.g. greeen, woody, aquatic etc).

    In my opinion, the quality on almost all the creeds is very high but there are some I don't really like so much.

    Bois de Portugal -- pure euphoria.

    The best of the Creeds (and the only one I know that doesn't make me go meh! or bleurgh!): Angelique Encens. A beauty.

    Someone should compile a list of cheaper Creed smell-alikes for our newer members who can't access- or afford to buy- Creeds.

    For example-

    Original Santal- Joop!
    Original Vetiver- TM Cologne
    MI- Unforgivable
    GIT- Cool Water

    Etc, etc.

    Not to start a flame war about Creeds or anything. If a person can't find a Creed to sample, there's nothing wrong with giving the comparable mass-market scent that most people DO have access to. The way that people write about Original Santal, I never would have thought that it bore any resemblance to Joop; if I had bought it blind, I would have been very disappointed (not a big Joop fan, here).

    Just trying to be helpful.

    Earlier this year I ordered samples from parfumsraffy.com - they are one of the official online e-tailers for Creed:

    And last month, I ordered lots of niche samples from aedes.com

    i think a wonderful more modern, streamlined alternative to GIT is Bond No.9 Chez Bond. they are almost identical but i think Chez Bond is smoother and softer. also that 'Bond note' that i always smell from in that collection is a lot more bearable than that 'Creed note'

    - Hamptons smells like SMW

    - Unforgiven is a very good copy of Millesime Imperial, but not nearly they same depth

    I agree with the differences - Chez Bond lacks the ambergris drydown of GIT and has the earthy middle notes of GIT toned down. If you dont like ambergris and find the earthy notes of GIT disconcerting, give Chez Bond a try.
