    I can't believe Angelique Encens has yet to be mentioned even once. Cryin' shame...

    I would have to politely disagree.

    The best CREED is…..whichever one was most recently discontinued.

    Lately I am in love with

    Baie De Genievre, Fuelle Verte and Acier Aluminum.
    Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.

    GIT is the best because it revolutionized men's fragrances. This was the beginning of the green chypre that was somewhat aquatic.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Tonka Imperiale
    3. Dior Homme
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Oud Wood
    6. Ambre Nuit
    7. L'air Du Desert Marocain
    8. Noir de Noir
    9. Apple Brandy
    10.Straight to Heaven

    Green Irish Tweed is perfect in every way, except longevity. For the time it lasts, it is great. It should be in every serious collection.
    Also enjoy very much Royal Oud. The turkish delight top note is fun. Bois de Portugal is very sophisticated and I can imagine wearing it a lot when I am older.
    Royal Scottish Lavender and Royal English Leather are both passable.
    Other than that, Creeds are either pretty yet transient smells or disappointing.

    1. SMW
    2. GIT
    3. Himalaya
    4. Aventus
    5. Original Vetiver

    Honorable Mention:
    Millesime Imperial - although, I have been experiencing longevity issues with my sample. Not sure what the average longevity people get with this is.

    SMW and Aventus are the two I am most familiar with, and I love both. Unfortunately after it dries down, SMW is just so dang faint. I love the drydown though. Aventus... I just love it, and it projects and stays like a monster. I get slight moth balls from the C_x02 batch, but no one else seems to think that, and I don't mind it.

    BdP is a "man's man" cologne. As others have said, I respect it but I would never wear it. It's one of the few Creeds I was not tempted to buy. It just smells like an old man....to me, and brings the image of going down to the Elks Club and mingling with the greasy haired smokers as they play cards.

    I could not pick one "best" Creed, but my favorites are OV, SMW, MI, Green Valley, Selection Verte, Windsor, Bois de Santal, Santal Imperial and Citrus Bigarrade.

    Absolutely true for me (on my skin) as well. I have tried Tabarome MI (not vintage), SMW, Himalaya, and I think Santal...none have touched BdP in terms of how nice *I* think it smells on me--the thing that matters.

    What can I expect to get for my bottle of 120 mL Tabarome Millesime (~60% full)?

    Green Irish Tweed. GOAT. Period.

    I doubt you'll like Private Collection/ Vintage Tabarome then--it is a very old school fragrance! If I had to choose a "best," VT would be my choice. The first whiff is simply a grand sensory experience. VT is robust in terms of longevity as well. Several other Creeds deserve mention of course, but the best of the best for me is VT. On a tangential note, VT is more rich and complex than vintage Patou Pour Homme or vintage Derby IMO.

    I've got to go with Green Irish Tweed on this one, one of the greatest of all time.

    It begins with an "A" and rhymes with Spaventus.

    I've not found a fragrance that suits me more than Creed's Cypres-Musc. Can't get enough of it.

    GIT
    Chevrefeuille Original
    Selection Verte
    SMW
    Himalaya

    Hard to pick a favourite really, Selection Verte is the most beautiful summer scent but for all round versatility it has to go to the GIT.

    Aventus is my favorite.
    It is not really unique, but this scent makes me somehow get addicted.
    Its longevity and projection are greater than any other Creed products.

    But nevertheless, I wished Aventus would be a bit cheaper.

    Many people says that aventus is not really unique, but with all the frag I smelled (hundreds..) I never cam across something very similar. Yes, some have pineapple notes too, soome frag are smoky too, but the way aventus smell, the mix of pineapple and smoky, the vibes it makes, its quite unique IMO. Its not like those light sporty frag that almost smell all the same.

    Totally subjective. However, my review of Baie de Genievre reveals where my heart is:

    The 1980s was the golden age of Creed releases. Sure, we have the classical period before that which gave us Cuir de Russie, Cypres-Musc and Angelique Encens. Before that we had Creed's archaic period with its specatular period pieces like vintage Tabarome and Royal English Leather. Following the 80s we have the new age Creed offerings with their unisex appeal... all great fragrances. The 1980s, however, saw the release of Creed's three greatest scents ever: Baie de Genievre, Green Irish Tweed and Bois du Portugal.

    While Green Irish Tweed and Bois du Portugal probably far outsell Baie de Genievre, Baie de Genievre, Feuille de Canellier (as it was originally marketed) is the simplest and most elegant of these fragrances, perfectly ballancing it's three simple notes. Its austerity of notes creates one of the purest--yet richest--Creeds available. My favorite Creed.

    If I say that it is not unique, then I mean that I have ever smelt something like this.
    And this "something" must not be a fragrance, but a room, a person´s smell or whatever.

    My vote goes to Aventus. Has the best overall smell, is strong in projection/longevity, and is extremely versatile.
