    Hi stylemaker!

    Green Irish Tweed and Bois du Portugal get the most reviews and awards on Basenotes.

    Both are excellent, but my favorite is one that I don't even own (yet ) -

    Acier Aluminium
    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

    Baie de Genievre by a longshot. Green Irish Tweed, Bois du Portugal and both Tabaromes are great, too. Erolfa is the ONLY aquatic, IMO!

    My Creed barometer goes up and down. Sometimes I feel that the line is so desperately over-rated, but then I spray on Jasmin Impératrice Eugénie and I realize they've nailed the quality thing down better than any other house.

    Welcome to Basenotes, former home of Creed love, but now dominated by lots of Lutens and Montale love (like every other blog and perfume site on the net).

    My favorite Creed? Right now its Bois de Santal, closely followed by the fantastic Cuir de Russie.

    My favorite so far, and by far, is Original Vetiver! I also like Original Santal. GIT I own but hardly wear; I just find it, well, boring. I know, heresy around these parts... BdP has a great drydown, but I find it too lavender-laden to invest in a bottle. Others I've tried but have not been wowed by include SMW, MI and Himalaya.

    If you live near a Saks or a Neiman Marcus, you could plan weekly visits to the Creed counter, that is, until the SA's start turning their backs when they eyeball you coming towards them.
    Seriously, if you approach them with polite honesty, they will usually give you one or two sample vials to test. They usually have drawers full.

    I would have to politely disagree with zztopp; I certainly would not skip Creed, but would rather check out as many houses as you can. Creed has a wider variety of scents, whereas Lutens--imo--seems to have a very heavy hand in the sweet department.

    Creed was my first major purchase (Himalaya), and although I've branched out considerably since then, the Creed line still holds a special place in my fragrance obsession. Their fragrances have a certainly honesty to them, which I greatly respect. Erolfa is my favorite summer choice, and Original Vetiver is my everyday Go To, especially when I don't particularly wish to shout out "I'm wearing perfume!". I find that Himalaya tends to leave a slightly sickeningly sweet trail in my wake, so I'm pretty careful to apply lightly. My next Creed buy will probably be SMW or Baie de Genievre, both excellent IMO.

    one of the aspects I love about Creeds is that there's somethin for everyone... for the most part. I have a few, but the only two I absolutely love beyond compare are Baie de Genievre and Orange Spice.

    I've only sampled a few but Acier Aluminum is far and away my favorite Creed. It's also one of my top 10 fragrances overall. I like Silver Mountain Water too but it hasn't inspired me enough to buy a bottle yet.

    This one is my favorite , there are quite a few I like very much, like Bois du Portugal and Virgin Island Water. I was obsessed with Himalaya for a while, but my ardor cooled. It will heat up again, I'm sure.

    I have Green Irish Tweed (2007 stock from Neiman's). Amazing stuff, it smells nearly alive, the component notes are so vibrant. So, yes, I love it.

    I hit the Creed counter last week to see what else I really wanted. I was set on loving BdP and Erolfa, but neither did it for me, at least on paper. Of course, I haven't written them off. What I did love was Himalaya -- which does share much with GIT, so may not be worth a separate bottle -- and Tabarome Millesime (new version). Acier Aluminum is quite fine, too.

    Curse the House of Creed for making so many well constructed scents to tourture ourselves with!

    I must add Silver Mountain Water to my list. I just rediscovered this gem after making it walk the swap plank. Fantastic! I think it works better in crisp weather than in the warmer months, at least on my skin; the ink note isn't as pronounced and the whole fragrance seems to sparkle. Great stuff.

    Cool Re: What is your favorite creed Fragrance?

    Himalaya.

    Erolfa---If I'm by the seashore.

    Vintage Tabarome--- Fix bayonets and charge!

    REL----In cool weather. A formal, yet dashing, yet soothing 'comfort' scent---go figure.

    As to the ' forest ones' Selection Verte in warm or mild weather, and Cypress Muscs anytime. Pity about the poor longevity of Epicea. The '48 Vetiver is a summer staple--but I prefer Guerlian. OV has an annoying yet addictive note, if that makes any sense, and I doubt it does, but there it is. I'll come back to it someday.

    As to the rest, Acier Aluminum is really much too lazy to be decadent. I like it.

    In fact, the only ones that have done nothing for me are the BN beloved GIT, BdP and MI, followed by Royal Water and the new Tabarome.
    Live and let live.

    Cheers,

    Which is why I have 11 Imperial bottles, 3 SMW bottles, 3 Himalaya bottles, 3 GIT bottles, 6 Erolfa bottles, and 2 VIW bottles (all full ) in my wine cooler, they are too addicting, Someone should really create a Creed Anonymous line for people who are addicted...like me...now if you'll excuse me I have to take another hit of SMW......
