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.
I was being a bit cheeky when I voted "none" but in all seriousness...Royal Oud. I love that stuff. Millesime Tabarome is pretty awesome, too.
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...
A lot of Creeds are so easy to like but if I had to choose one it would be Millesime Imperial just for the olfactory satisfaction it brings me.
Aventus, without a doubt
This question is very easy for me!
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).
Other: Baie de Genievre.
The outstanding and completely unique dusty green cinnamon juice that stands alone in the cold while everyone ignores it.

Acier aluminum or baie de genievre. Booth special and unique...
LOOKING FOR DECANTS OF ANY O. Durbano, ANY Hilde Soliana, BOISE VANILLE, COLOGNE POUR LE SOIR, MUSC RAVEGEUR, AND ROSE 31 TO SWAP:.:wink
SMW, I am in my fourth 4.0 oz bottle already and I have stashed away 2 more as a back up.
My second choice would be Himalaya
Bois du Portugal, please.
My top 5: Sea Mist; Minnow; Crab, tiger, and almonds; Semprini; Rancid Polecat N° 2
I voted Bois du Portugal, but I have to say that Vintage Tabarome would be my fantasy bottle.
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.
The hunt for a Signature Fragrance is not an easy one! I see the light at the end of the tunnel! Edit: 2015... I've given up and given in

Looking for swap: Bentley Intense, Boss Bottled Intense, Bond No 9 I love NY for all (Would consider decants), Pure Tonka A*men, Lolita Lempicka Minuit, Aqua Di Gio Essenza
I did buy only one. Although I'm not well-versed in Creed, the only one I've found that I like is Irisia.
Could never select one:
Spice and Wood (although too expensive)
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
