    Default Which Creed fragrance do you like best?

    Tell us what you like most and why. Here's mine:

    1. Green Irish Tweed
    2. Silver Mountain Water
    3. Millesime Imperial
    4. Himalaya
    5. Original Vetiver

    Sorry I didn't specify the first time, but I was also hoping you list them in order of preference, 1 being your top choice. But I guess those who replied already did it that way.

    And yes, I am a fan of Creed, and this thread is just out of my curiosity what other Creed fans prefer, that's all.

    Is it just me or BN is becoming more and more some sort of creed-cult group?
    meh I will bite.

    Erolfa
    SMW
    Imperial
    BdP
    Acier A.


    IMHO, very over rated:
    VIW. Without the creed lable, this scent would have been "average". Tommy Bahama SSSB and Very Cool are similar and actually better.
    GIT. Must be a cultural thing. I can't not understand why something so similar to Cool Water would be liked so much.
    BdP True there is nothing like it. But it is not the best fragrance ever either.
    OV. Mugler cologne was released 3 years before you, you overpriced homage( .~~)
    Himalaya. The product of a developed idea. Eternity, XS, D&G PH, Herrera, Chanel PE. almost 10 years later, Himalaya.

    At this time I lean towards Imperiale and Acier Aluminum.

    Default Re: Which Creed fragrance do you like best?

    1. Millesime Imperial
    2. Green Irish Tweed
    3. Silver Mountain Water (the blackcurrant still grosses me out, but the scent turns beautiful in 30-45 min.)
    4. Bois du Portugal
    5. Selection Verte/Original Vetiver/Feuille Verte

    Those are my 5 faves, but all have very similar alternatives: Unforgivable Multi-Platinum, Cool Water/Chez Bond, Hamptons, PdN New York/Heritage, Mugler Cologne. It's pretty easy to go budget on Creed smell-alikes.

    I've tried to love AA/AE (too dirty), VIW/SF/FdtRB (too fem), RD (great on paper, not on my skin), RW (too boring), Erolfa (Amouage Arcus won out over this).

    I am a fan of Creed but I have a question. Can you tell us when and how you encountered Creed? I am just curious as to why most newbies here start off with a Creed thread, thats all.

    We are not all back-water, unintelligent beings, LOL. I knew of Creed long before joining basenotes. When developing my fascination with fragrances, I knew there had to be higher offerings in the world than what could be found at the local mainstream market. I did some research and it seemed that Creed was revered as a top luxury line. Not knowing how it smelled or if it was worth the money, I did another search and aquired some samples. This is probably how most people go about it. I will admit that since joining basenotes, I hear of exciting things that was not previous knowledge.

    Now back to you, share with us how you discovered Creed. I was lead by my own cognition. Were you introduced through basenotes as your question would suggest? To answer the original question, I don't have an answer as to which Creed I like the best. I am currently investing interest in other houses although I will make an effort to reconnect with Creed in the future.

    You know scentronic, you said what I was thinking. There are so many that are a complete tie. I like most of them with an equal amount of enthusiasm. In fact, if I ever get another creed, it most likely will be selection vert but it is hard to tell at this point.

    I have been to pretty much every perfume blog and site on the net and Creed isn't discussed as much as Serge Lutens, Guerlain, and other houses there. Or maybe you discovered Creed at Neimans/Saks or through a friend/relative?

    As for me, I learned about Creed through Basenotes and was initially here to find info on some Polo and Bulgaris.

    For the original question: its hard to pick one amongst offerings like Vintage Tabarome, Acier Aluminum, Selection Verte, Feuille Verte, REL, BdP, Bois de Santal, Santal Imperial, M. Imperial, SMW, etc..

    I know only 20 of them, and don't know BdP.
    And now: by far Vintage Tabarome and Green Irish Tweed are the favourite ones. That is they are the only ones for which I would give money (GIT I do have now). I see that Original Vetiver is a great scent, but I simply can't wear any vetiver.
    For a time I thought Royal English Leather will be a big love too, but the romance is over.
    And the others - well, they fell short of my expectations. Simply put, for me they aren't complex, they are rather short-lived, and they aren't intriguing.
    But nice to see happy people wearing them

    BdP, by miles - i dont mind the 'retro' facet, I like it more because of it.

    But to be honest, ive only tried four Creeds.
    GIT - 'sorry' - just dont get it!
    Silver Mountain W - utterly foul concoction.
    OV - Yes, nice - its OK, but I've encountered others similar that I prefer (much) more.

    BdP though .. is a Symphony!
    and the music plays on, and on, without repeating and ever changing.
    Wonderful, rich, melodic tones.

    I think it's hard for some to admit what is likely the greatest house.
    It's easier to big up for the underdog, and I always cheer for the underdog.
    But until the quality is there, I'm just cheering, not buying.

    In no particular order;

    Bois du Portugal
    Erolfa
    Green Irish Tweed (after 20 minutes it smells nothing like Cool Water!)
    Neroli Savage
    Millesime Tabarome

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
