    Default Best Creed for a College Student?

    As the thread title says, was wondering people's views on the BEST Creed for a MALECollege Student that is currently available to buy? MI? GIT? Aventus? SMW? Etc.

    I currently own MI, and while I do like it, it's "okay." I like La Nuit, Rochas Man (guess I have a sweet tooth or something.) But I also like fragrances that smell less alcohol-ish which gives me a headache (which I tend to get from MI.)
    Top 5:
    1) La Nuit De L'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent
    2) Lumière Noire pour Homme by Maison Francis Kurkdjian
    3) Royal Oud by Creed
    4) One Million by Paco Rabanne
    5) Allure Homme Sport by Chanel

    All Creed frags are best for a college student. However, Aventus and GIT would be at the top together with Bois du Portugal.

    I couldn't see a collage student rocking Bois du Portugal. Aventus and GIT for sure. Erolfa/Original Santal are definitely worth a look. You will probably like the latter since you have bit of a "Sweet tooth"
    The hunt for a Signature Fragrance is not an easy one! I see the light at the end of the tunnel!
    Want to buy! "Nothing?!, well that's a first."

    Aventus gets my vote. It is a perfect fragrance for situations where you'll be in crowds with the opportunity to meet new people and make first impressions. That is basically what college is all about! (that, and earning a degree)

    Aventus is a fragrance that stands out and gets noticed without being overpowering. While all the other students are wearing the same generic teenager fragrances, Aventus grabs peoples attention and makes them say "Wow, who the heck is that? You smell nice..."

    After Aventus, I'd say GIT and SMW. Those are my two favorite Creeds, but I think Aventus will do amazing things for you.

    Whatever you decide, just make sure you don't overdo it. Nobody likes sitting beside "that guy" in a lecture theatre for 1.5 hours.

    Good luck.

    +1 In my long life of frag wearing, the classroom setting seems to be the single worst place to overdo a frag. Maybe even worse than in a corporate meeting. Somehow the classroom seems to magnify scent. Some of it probably due to everyone being young.

    I have to agree with everyone else, Creed Aventus is probably your best bet. Of course there is also Green Irish Tweed. I would have suggested MI as well, but you said that wasn't sweet enough.

    I'll +1 to Aventus. GIT's good but you may get cool water confusion. SMW's a little weird. MI might be ok but it's sort of limited ot summer and it has no umph. Original Santal's ok but probably too strong and limited a bit to colder weather. So basically Aventus is what you want. Get in on a flacon split and get like 10-30ml to try it out. Only other one that's ok is Vetiver. Not that interesting, but it's pretty harmless and nobody'll complain about it.
    Tom Ford Splits!!!! - Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather, Oud Wood, Noir de Noir,
    Plum Japonais, Italian Cypress,
    Neroli Portofino, Costa Azzura
    HARD TO FIND -
    Lavender Palm, Arabian Wood, Champacca Absolute and AMBER ABSOLUTE, etc...


    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Aventus in a heartbeat.

    For a college student? You could try virgin island water or himalaya.

    "guess I have a sweet tooth or something" = Original Santal

    As u love La Nuit & Rochas, I think u should try Virgin Island Water. For me it is an Earthy, Warm and a bit strong compare to others i have (GIT, MI, SMW, Himalaya).. On me it i not as fresh as others. And it is not woody scent. Coconut yummy..

    Histoires Des Parfum - 1969 Parfum De Revolte (in Europe this year is associated with students, sexual liberation, existentialism/socialism, in the US more with Vietnam, isn't it)

    Couldn't resist, sorry. I don't think Creed is appropriate for college. This brand is more about a 'get noticed' purpose, fishing for compliments. If You are eager for cologne, sample a lot first. Tip: Etat Libre d'Orange - Antiheros (French, hence spoken "anti-eros"), clean, not too fresh, has ELdOs signature faint sweetness in the dry down.

    From the Creeds, if You must, Love In White, of course.

    Thanks for the response everyone!! Love the feedback. Quick tally shows Aventus being the most popular choice so I really need to sample this and check it out. And yeah, GIT gets the Cool Water feel to me.. I've sampled it before. Just as how MI gets mistaken for Unforgivable by Sean John. So Aventus is looking like a great option! Will also try out Original Santal, SMW, and Virgin Island.

    Aventus X X x x x x x x x x x x x x
    GIT X x x x x x
    Original Santal x x x x x
    SMW x x x x
    MI x x x (Already own though.)
