Thread: 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.

Sweet Mountain Water
Back on Basenotes after about a 6 year absence. Need to time to re-adjust
Erolfa is my other Creed, I'm looking to add more also.
wow it's amazing to see all the different responses. Maybe I'll start a poll to see what are people's favorite creed fragrance
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 just fell in love with Just Me today
Good - thats one less "Greed Frisch Dweeb" threadOriginally Posted by thisbekevinn
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.comOriginally Posted by muchisgiven
Has this something to do with Freud or am I uninformed about a new release by Creed? :-) Have a nice day.Originally Posted by mentallo
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.Originally Posted by the_good_life
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.
get silver mountain water then get the hell out of there!
or buy a bunch of samples and elimidate the rest that way . ..

Bois de Portugal -- pure euphoria.
Peggy: "Right now, we have to get to the mental institution. Something terrible has happened."
Peggy: "Brother Boy has tried to kill himself. He jumped out of his bedroom window."
Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

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.
Original Santal- Joop!
Original Vetiver- TM Cologne
GIT- Cool Water
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.

Well I did what you guys said...I bought some samples. I couldn't find samples for erolfa, MI, OS, and SMW.
So if there are any other websites that I could chec, I'd really appreciate it if you guys can post them...
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.Originally Posted by sbbbjm
