    Aventus fits perfectly in this case as it is great in all seasons, for me at least. I like MI as well but as that wasn't on your list I chose Aventus.

    Cheapest place I can suggest is the splits board of this site. Some good people to deal with there an the savings are worth it. Only down side is you don't get a Creed bottle.

    Green Irish Tweed for the spring and VIW for the summer.

    I give personal preference to Fire Island, and is one of the few from Bond No. 9 that I would recommend. From your list, VIW works great as well.

    I really like and am wearing Bond Coney Island quite a bit lately. Also like Aventus but it does not last on me so I agree about getting a very good deal.

    BTW I own MI, Erolfa, Santal Imperial, and SMW already

    Just came back from mall. I am wearing Aventus and VIW.
    VIW smells good but I think it is a summer only fragrance. Aventus seems more versatile but I think I like GIT better. Didn't get to Saks to smell the bonds though.

    If the price was similar, should I buy from Amazon or Scentiments/fragrancenet?
    If the bottle from Amazon is sold and shipped from Amazon, could it be fake?

    I would go with Aventus. Aventus might become my main go to scent once I see how if works during the fall and winter time.

    I own all of those listed and Aventus wins hands down. A purchase suitable for all occasions, you will not regret it.

    I'd go with VIW which is made for summer and really summer only. Aventus is more versatile as far as season's go, but can't compete with VIW in the summer.

    VIW is awesome in summer but I will wear it most of the year. Aventus to me is much more suited to cooler months as the heat makes it fade to quick on me.

    Riverside drive is my new love affair, cant wait to use it in the warmer months! Bleecker street is also another good all round fragrance. I am yet to wear Coney Island in the summer but during winter I find it to be annoying, I hope it changes with heat. Personally id go for a Bond 9. they tend to project and last way longer than most creeds.

    Viw although it lasts about as long as a shooting star crossing the night sky

    Maybe I should test out some of the Bonds suggested. I know I have smelled them all but I will have to resmell some.

    Tried the bonds today. Riverside Drive and Brooklyn I think are my two favorite spring/summer scents.

    Riverside Drive by Bond No. 9 is a good choice. It's really an all-season scent.

    MI is great in summer, and although I've only tried these in cool weather Erolfa and Neroli Sauvage would be good in the heat as well.

    Default Re: Which Creed of Bond for summer?

    I like VIW more and more, but MI is the king of the Summer scents. Lately I've worn MI to work a lot, and VIW on weekends.

    I have yet to find a Bond that I like enough to wear much in the Summer. New Haarlem is the only one I own, and usually wear it in the Winter, and usually at night.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    I own Eau de New York, and it's a decent enough summer scent. Not saying it's the best Creed or Bond has to offer, merely endorsing what I'm familiar with.

    GIT is great if you get good sillage and longevity. I prefer Bond Chez Bond as its similar and works best fir my chemistry.

    Anything similar to Millesime Imperial with the longevity issues? If so i will invest in that
