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

    If you were to own/buy ONE bottle of CREED what would it be? Please Share!

    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'd have to go with GIT because it doesn't smell like Cool Water.

    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.

    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.

    GIT, if you cant tell the difference between GIT and Cool Water maybe you should find a new hobby.

    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.
    We're all in the same game; just different levels. Dealing with the same hell; just different devils.

    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.
