    To answer my question: It would be AVENTUS

    Reason(s):
    - Nice longevity 6+ hours on my skin
    - Very versatile, any season on any occasion
    - Projects very well, not overbearing, compliments by the females
    - One of the best scents by CREED, and its very unique
    a. GIT is great but is commonly mistaken as Cool Water by Davidoff
    b. MI is great as well but is too similar to Unforgiveable by Sean Jean

    Aventus enjoys a unique profile for the time being, but it's only a matter of time before other houses try to make something similar for a lower price, as did Davidoff with Cool Water, e.g.

    My favorite Creed is Green Valley; unfortunately it's been discontinued.

    Plus, I just plain and simply enjoy the smell of Aventus more than any other Creeds I've tried.
    What I've been wearing far too much of lately:

    -Amouage Lyric Man
    -Guerlain Gourmand Coquin
    -Creed Jardin d'Amalfi

    I read the title, and immediately thought of Aventus, it is currently my gourmand of choice. But, for all around dress up or dress down I would say Royal Oud.

    Default Re: If you were to own (or buy) ONE bottle of CREED what would it be?


    Angélique Encens

    • Longevity: easily 4 -5 hours.
    • Versatile: the floral top over the amber and light incense works in most seasons.
    • Projects Well; compliments by the females: The girls really liked this on Marlene Dietrich, but those same girls probably won't notice it on a dude.
    • Unique: yes, an incense note way before incense was über trendy.

    not that it's their best fragrance (because it's not), but i'd actually go with Aventus. so versatile, so well liked, and smells so good. it's amazing how i never get tired of this scent.

    I would probably say VT if I wasn't concerned about getting cancer from it... I'll go with GIT for now...even thought there are a lot of "e's" up there, lol. Hard decision though, I love MI, BdP, Selection Verte, Aventus and SMW...

    Fortunately I don't have to choose to own only one. But if pressed, I'd say Windsor. It is simply magnificent and quite unique. It has excellent longevity too.

    I own Virgin Island Water and Green Irish Tweed and love them both.

    But purely for the fact that GIT can be worn all year round i'd go for that one. I love VIW, but I can't see me wearing it outside of the summer months.

    Green Irish Tweed is the definitive Creed fragrance and is the very essence of the company. I love many Creeds, but GIT is my all-time favorite scent.

    From that list, I would pick VIW, though I am yet to try Royal Oud. However, my favourite Creed is Windsor, with honorable mentions going to Angelique Encens and Green Valley.

    I currently only own one Creed and it is Aventus. I like its unique combination of uplifting green synthetics - it reminds of everything we used to like about many green chypre fragrances. I doubt it is a chypre and I think that category is obsolete today with so many other top note and base combinations of synthetics and naturals that create a chypre like effect. Anyway I like Aventus more than other Creeds. GIT, MI and BDP are fantastic scents but are getting a little over-used, abused and worn out for me to want to put them #1 in Creeds lineup.

    I will probably go to my grave extolling the virtues of the wonderful, underrated Green Valley, but for sheer versatility I would have to choose GIT.

    Maybe you can, but most people (with no parfume knowledge) will mistake it with cool water. Cool Water is well known, Creed isn't so known. You'll be the "is that cool water?" boy for most people.

    I voted for Himalaya... i'll be the "is that Paco Rabanne XS?" guy. At least it has better longevity and projection than XS, but i know most people around me don't even know what creed is (c'mon, even in the big department stor that sells Creed most SA didn't know what Creed was and i found the Creed Shelves on my own, by pure luck. Paco XS is well known, so, there are differences but most people won't notice. I've learned to live with it.

    I got about 4 compliments wearing Aventus today, and they weren't just "you smell good," they were "you smell sooooo good, I want to hover around you." And these were all from people that have never noticed the other fragrances I wear daily.

    The last two compliments were 9 hours after application too, btw.

    LOL, the perfume section SA's at El Corte Inglés are generally clueless about what they're selling...
    Back on topic, of the five or six Creeds I've sampled, I've only bought a decant of GIT. It smells like an "upgraded generic aquatic", which means that it is tastier and kind of more fruity than the average aquatic without being cloying. I also enjoyed Baie de Genièvre...

    This question is very easy for me!

    Cypres-Musc


    Delicious, smooth musky-woody scent with a unique licorice-root accord. Love it, and would happily own it if it weren't several dozen bottles down on my to-own list and discontinued.

    It is my favorite Creed, but I just don't love Creed that much.

    I'll happily stick with GIT as The One, still have a bit left in my 1997 flacon.

    Honourable mention Tabarome Millesime (2002), Original Vetiver (2005) (yup - 'the two unloved' but they have happy memories for me) and Angelique Encens (2008).

    Aventus to me is a Mercedes CL, GIT is a Mercedes S-Class. Both highly desirable, I would prefer the CL 95% of the time, but the S is timeless, and I would miss having a sedan 5% of the time.
