    Default Most Underrated/ Overrated Creed Fragrances

    As I continue my new-found love affair with Acier Aluminum, it's made me think how underrated this gem is. It's made me want to explore some of the lesser-known scents from this house. Conversely, some of the more popular ones like Millisime Imperial have just never clicked with me. What do you guys think are the most underrated and overrated frags from Creed?

    There's a LOT of over rated, but for me the main culprit is definitely GIT

    Underrated: Green Valley

    I'm in with the chorus of GIT being overhyped. It's not a bad fragrance if you like what it does, but it's not the be-all and end-all of fragrance.

    The same applies for the new Aventus. I actually like Aventus, but it's being treated like the second coming.

    In the sadly neglected category, I'll mention the dark and intriguing Jasmin Imperatrice Eugenie and the creamy classic Cypres-Musc, both excellent fragrances that don't get a lot of talk.

    I think this is more a question of what suits my nose, however;

    Underrated - Green Valley, Baie de Genievre and Cypres Musc

    Overrated, Millesime Imperial, Erolfa, and for being simply vile, Royal Delight.

    I'm not as familiar with the Creeds but just from my store sniffing and sampling I'd come up with this list.

    Over rated : GIT, SMW and even the new one everyone is raving about Aventus. Not that these are bad but as far as the general consensus on 'rating' and compared to my opinion of them. GIT to me is just wtf is this stuff. When I smelled it I though my sniffer was broke cause I thought how can something so highly praised be such a stench in my opinion. SMW is nice but there's some funk to it that makes me think a bear peed upstream in that 'mountain water'. Aventus has a great opening and even for an hour or so but the dry down gets my head hurting.

    Under rated : Tabarome Millesime, everyone uses VT as a baseline comparison and it can't measure up to that timeless classic but it has it's own understated elegance. I enjoy it and have gotten great feedback from my female friends about it. Said it smells manly without being too 'cologny' one even called it an aphrodisiac so take that for what it's worth. Original Vetiver, I guess some like it enough but it gets a knock somewhat for being a copy of something else in many people's minds. Although I just love it and just recently discovered it. Original Santal, another one getting knocked for being a 'copy' but it's really a great frag. I wish I could wear it, it tickles my nose to the point I sneeze. It's pretty darn intense but when I wore it that once one of my g-friends went nuts over it.

    Of course there are alot I haven't had the chance to smell and thus my experience with Creed is limited.

    Well, I'll pass on the overrated category because GIT is SO popular that's it's too easy a target, and I really like it. As far as underrated, Baie de Genievre is my top choice, followed by Bois de Cedrat.

    Underrated*: Tabarome Millesime

    * I found this challenging since I find it much more difficult to find one that is not highly and widely rated but still decent. Original Vetiver almost made it, but it's too well liked by too many.

    I LOVE this stuff and you never see anyone writing about or using it for SOTD. I only have a sample.
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.

    +1 for all the overrated comments with Himalaya...yes its cold, yes the name and bottle are perfect for the scent, etc etc, it doesn't change the fact that the juice has no raison d'etre. When can you pick it? Its like the clumsy kid being chosen last on a sports team...when I face my wardrobe every morning, there never seems to be a reason to smell synthetically cold that day.

    I guess I am keeping it around for a possible Everest expedition.

    I have not had a chance to sample Aventus, but I cannot image it NOT being RIDICULOUSLY overrated. I have not seen a group of guys this excited about anything since Pure Malt was discontinued. It seems many people here would consider it their go-to desert island fragrance...provided that the only sustenance on the island was not pineapples....

    Underrated: Virgin Island Water


    With regard to the above posters comments regarding Aventus... yes it is overrated, but then again, people on here have been talking about it like one spray will result in a life changing experience!! It's a great smell, obviously made with high quality ingredients, the wife loves it, but it's pretty one dimensional.

    To me, saying any of them are overrated is just picking the ones I don't like.

    I will say imo Virgin Island Water is underrated. That one snuck up and surprised me big time. I eschewed it for years. It's quite nice and shockingly love lived on me.
