Thread: Loving Creed

  1. #1

    Default Loving Creed

    So, I've never been a huge fan of Creed until recently. I always thought their fragrances were just OK, nothing to write home about and certainly not worth the steep price tag. But I'm totally digging them now and think their products are top notch. In fact, I've been utterly blown away with the line.

    I recently purchased Himalaya (absolutely love it and get awesome longevity out of it) and Tabarome (also get great longevity, though it's very subtle). I live in NYC so both were purchased at reasonable prices from discount perfume shops. I can really tell the difference when I wear a Creed fragrance from say a standard designer fragrance. Oh, and I'm seriously thinking about springing for a 4oz bottle of Aventus this weekend.

    You will find many people who adore Creed and many who despise them.

    They do have some nice scents.

    I tend to prefer the more modern Creed releases. I'm not really a big fan of ambergris at all, so my favorites are ones without the ambergris or with lesser amounts of it (Virgin Island Water, Original Santal, Aventus).

    Windsor, Bois du Portugal, GIT, MI, Aventus, Selection Verte, and Feuille Verte are my favorites of the ones I own from the line. They have other good ones IMO, but some of their offerings are definitely subpar.

    Everyone's entitled to their opinions etc, and in my humble opinion, there's more "must own" Creeds than any other fragrance house. Again, just my opinion, but they are classy, quality, and easy to wear.

    Try the search engine for any fragrance.

    You'll be amazed at the amount of content.

    Its a trick. These nice guys trust in the greed of their addressees who run to the discounters to make the imagined steal deal.

    I suppose most of Creed afficionados wouldn't pay even the discounter prices if it hadn't the elusive Creed exclusivity (price wise) in the first place. Its not You who makes the 'steal'.

    I am sure you probably have tried these but I would look at Silver Mountain Water, Green Irish Tweed, and Millisime Imperial. Aventus gets a lot of hype as of recently but imo it doesn't come close to the three I just mentioned. I also like Erolfa and Santal Imperial.

    I love Creed. I don't know if it their house accord or the ambergris but whatever it is, it smells unique in a good way. They seem to be crowd pleasers. I always get compliments from wearing Creed.

    Creed have some fantastic scents including Green Irish Tweed, Aventus, Himalaya and Original Vetiver. These are the ones I personally own and love. In addition I'm really warming up to Original Santal, and I got Millesime Imperial and Tabarome.

    I also need to sample Silver Mountain Water and Royal Water again, plus some of the ones you guys list here like Selection Verte and Fuille Verte. Hopefully I can get some samples of them going.

    What I really can't deal with right now is Virgin Island Water - it's just too feminine for me. Good-smelling indeed, but just not "me".

    They seem to have a ton of good fragrances, and my favorites from what I've tried so far are: GIT, Aventus, Millsime Imperial, Royal Water, Silver Mountain Water, Himalaya, Virgin Island Water, and Original Vetiver. I really like their fresh scents, but I've been ho-hum about their others.

    I agree, Aventus is probably my biggest compliment getter in my arsenal, lot of women ask what I'm wearing when I use it. It's awesome stuff.

    very true. and the thing is... it's not just their newer Millesimes (Aventus/GIT/MI) that do it. lately i've had raving compliments on Vetiver '48, Aubepine Acacia, and Santal Imperial.

    I really like some of their fragrances, but two of their newer ones left me wanting more (Aventus, Windsor)

    I've yet to find one that I want to own. Royal Oud and Royal English Leather were alright. My girlfriend wants Silver Mountain Water.

    wow... arguably their two most beloved scents!

    It's as if this hobby is 100% subjective or something...

    Couldn't agree more with mesaboogie. Although in my opinion Himalaya edges out Millesime Imperial for second place. I'm seriously thinking about selling all my designer fragrances and just wearing Creed. I started this crazy hobby by researching various scents to find one single signature scent but I'm now thinking of just having one brand signature scent: Creed.
