    Original Vetiver is brilliant. Way underrated and garners tons of female attention.

    I had Bois de Portugal but ultimately found it to be a bit...mature. I really like Royal Water and Virgin Island Water, but on me the latter has almost no longevity or sillage which is a problem at $205 a pop.

    Don't buy a Creed based on what you hear since everyone's taste is different. I made that mistake years ago after buying without sampling first.

    I was impressed with Vintage Tabarome, Royal English Leather, and Original Santal. They last very long on me and smell unique in my opinion.

    I was not impressed with Green Irish Tweed, Silver Mountain Water, Millesime Imperial, Erolfa, Green Valley, and Original Vetiver. They all smell nice but I don't think they don't stand out enough from designer fragrances to warrant their high price. Some of them have horrible longevity on me as well.

    I was very disappointed in Tabarome (new version), Bois du Portugal, and Virgin Island Water. I just don't like the way they smell and would never wear them.

    In the end it's different strokes for different folks.

    I agree, with Creed or any frag you must try before you buy, i love virgin island water, bois du portugal and royal english leather but i did not like Himalaya, original santal or original vetiver even though many love it.

    "Best" is a very complex question.

    What's your mood? What's the weather like? What is your budget? What is the situation where the fragrance will be presented? Is there an event later in the day when a different scent would better serve and it's important there be no remnant of the fragrance just applied? How far away are the people you want smelling you? Is your reason for applying fragrance public or private? Is there a distinct need for individuality? What emotions does one wish to evoke?


    For instance, my best overall, one size fits all fragrance is Green Irish Tweed which happens to alternate position with Old Spice.
    My best emotionally lifting fragrance is Aventus. It's a great and quick pick me up, bottled enthusiasm as it were.
    My favorite daytime all weather scent is Bois du Portugal.
    My best individualistic scent is Acier Aluminum.
    Yet, none of these are my favorite nor my best fragrance and each have their distinct limitations.
    And they are all excellent in their own right.

    Green Irish Tweed is the most versatile. I wore 3 sprays today and it's plenty. Best all-around Creed.

    Bois du Portugal is first rate. It's difficult to compare it to any other fragrance because it's so unique.

    What type of scent are you're looking for since the scents in this list are from different genres. The one scent you should eliminate is Vintage Tabarome because it's gone for good and the remaining juice is treasured by its owners, meaning that it is overly expensive to get.

    Asking what is the best Creed is like asking what is the best color. All depends on what do you want it for.
    For a night in the town?, for the office?, for a romantic night?, for a sporting event? etc...
    Each of this situations will elicit a different response

    I wish they reformulate GIT so it lasts longer and projects. Not everyone's going to be a space invader and closely smell GIT when it's close to skin in like, less than an hour?

    I like Aventus the best, but I have not sampled every Creed frag so that may change.

    That's unfortunate for you. I don't have this problem at all. Light spray on back of neck, wrists sometimes chest too. Lasts well from 8am -> evening

    Bois du portugal maybe a lil strong for first time. but give it time and allow drydown to take place. Nothing is like it, very soapy with great longevity. Hard to discribe have to apply on neck not arm to test. Def my favorite of all time!
