    Many houses on par with or better with a better price point. Too many scents to name. Other posters who will follow with surely give you specific names.

    As Hednic correctly stated, way too many to mention. Just like most other houses, Creed has some good releases and some not so good... They are hardly the be all, end all of the fragrance world. Just do a search and you will find literally thousands of alternatives.

    My advice is look into some vintage designer releases for starters...
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    Unfortunately there are no good substitutes for Creed fragrances. They are 1 of a kind and absolutely original. They use nothing but the rarest, most precious synthetic essential oils. Not only that, but their longevity is practically unmatched. Very few fragrances can last for 4 hours and still demand a 3 digit price tag. Creeds truly are reserved for royalty, the Hollywood elite, and Kim Jong Un.

    Top 5:
    1. Axe Kilo
    2. Lectric Shave
    3. Vicks Vapor Rub
    4. Febreze Pour Homme
    5. Preferred Stock

    Cool Water is the Green Irish Tweed substitute, both are very similar
    The really spooky one is Mont Blanc Individuel which came out before Original Santal, and smells 99% identical.

    Yet you own 9 bottles of Creed :O
    The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.

    Indivudel (Mont Blanc) has been compared to Creed OS many times.

    Various vintage designer scents often smell, not better, but equal to Creed or almost any niche to me, plus, being vintage, many of them are being sold under their actual value, given their quality.

    Personally I don't see why Creed fragrances are so expensive compared to others. In a way I think you just pay for the name with Creed and I'm sure many fragrances would receive better reviews on Basenotes if they were made by Creed. eg: 1 Million, D&G Light Blue, Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme 2008

    I'm not saying Creed is bad it's just like Ferrari, everyone thinks it looks good because it's a Ferrari, if it said Tata on the front people wouldn't like it.

    Agree with CW as GIT substitute although GIT seems to be the higher-quality fragrance.

    You say "just a fragrance" ?! Well, then just try something else and move on.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.
