    Default whats the best creed scent for fall/winter

    seeing the other thread on the best creed fragrance for summer got me wondering what is the best fragrance for fall/ winter. I will be purchasing my winter fragrances soon so would love to hear what you all think.

    IMO anyone could be used for those seasons, but I'll choose Bois Du Portugal.

    Aventus works well for me in the winter (as well as other seasons). Likewise, GIT is great in cooler weather.

    Speaking for me, I like Silver Mountain Water and Himalaya in winter. They have a coldness about them that lends itself to that time of year.

    Get some samplers on eBay and pick the one you like. We can't know what would best reflect the winter you. That said, Green Irish Tweed has a nice warm sitting by the fire in tweed feel to it and all my favorite old movie stars wore it...bespoke of Carry Grant.

    Looks like royal oud is the clear winner so far, just a shame that it has a higher price tag! I think I may stick with original santal and GIT this winter

    aventus comes alive with warmth and freshness in the fall winter.. Himalaya also goes great on a cold day. I find smw goes great in hot weather .. However git is my dressy scent all year round .. My wife grades them as 1. aventus 2 git 3 smw 4 himalaya. I find the bigest complement getter is smw and aventus .. they are tied.. I work in health care and women just go crazy for smw and aventus. All four scents are my favorite and are very clean. Surprisingly Himalaya gets a lot of complements from women saying how mellow it is and unique. I love them all!!

    I like GIT in the summer, but it's a nice changeup in this cooler weather. The OS sample I had was nice enough a couple weeks ago. But if I could only pick one (of the ones I've tried), I'd go with Bois du Portugal. Very, very nice.

    1. GIT.

    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Creed Virgin Island Water

    6. Thierry Mugler Pure Havane
    7. Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme
    8. Bulgari Blu

    10. YSL Kouros

    OS is the obvious choice. Aventus may be a sleeper.

    No love for Acier Aluminium?

    Some are turned off by the topnotes, but the drydown is pure heaven. This was the first niche/high-end fragrance that I've purchased, and I have yet to find any fragrance that has a better drydown, especially in the winter.

    I finally topped off my Creed Fragrances. So here is my list with winter first being that it's December 22.

    Original Santal
    Royal Oud
    Aventus
    Green Irish Tweed
    Erolfa

    My lineup is well balanced. All I have to do is reverse the lineup in the warmer months. A sixth is in process, that choice will play out for a while. Acier Aluminum is being considered being that I'm pushing 50.LoL

    none of them I'd say are top notch choices for the colder seasons. But Aventus still in 50 degree Fahrenheit weather lasts a while and is noticeable through the cold

    This is another opportunity for me to plug Himalaya as an awesome, under-appreciated Creed.
