    Cool Other luxury colognes besides Creed

    HI,

    I've been a completely satisfied Creed wearer for years. Just curious what other high-end cologne lines/manufacturers there are which I might want to try?

    There are many. First one that comes to mind as obviously recommendable is Amouage.

    Since this is almost the exact same question you asked in another thread, I'm going to post the exact same answer:

    Try something from Guerlain - L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme, Heritage, Cologne du 68 (if you can find it) are all great scents, as are many of their others.

    If you want to spend a bit more, sample some of the Tom Ford private blends. Noir de Noir, Tobacco Vanille and Tuscan Leather are favourites.

    If you can pull off more unisex fragrances and like warm orientals, you really can't beat Serge Lutens. My favourites are Santal Majuscule, Chergui and Feminite do Bois.

    There are no other luxury houses. Creed is the only one.


    But I would still recommend:

    Maitre Parfumer Et Gantier
    Parfums De Nicolai
    Pengaligons
    Czech & Speake
    Amouage
    Serge Lutens
    Frederic Malle
    By Kilian
    Tom Ford
    Atelier
    Acqua Di Parma
    Hermes

    I don't even know where to begin...? The options are in the hundreds. EdP Frédéric Malle has a lot of great options and is as good a starting place as any other...
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (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)

    Mona Di Orio Oud . Thanks to a fellow Basenotes member generous trade, I am now a big fan of this. Such a strange opening though. But beautiful drydown.

    I would stick with Creed, especially now that you have the added convenience of finding it at high-volume discounters such as kmart and Winners, the TJMaxx of Canada.

    i don't find the Creed house as luxury at all, i categories Creed as a casual summer wear, nothing special. Just an OK juices with a hefty price tag.

    Other high end are and worth the price

    Guerlain, Tom Ford and Frederic Malle are all amazing fragrance houses. I would also give the Frapin house a shot. I absolutely am loving 1270 this time of year and I use L'Humaniste as my scent that I wear when I don't know what to wear on those hot summer days.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Epic Man
    3. Tonka Imperiale
    4. Noir de Noir
    5. Bois d'Argent
    6. Musc Ravageur
    7. Apple Brandy
    8. Dior Homme Intense
    9. Aoud 1
    10.Tobacco Vanille

    Other than the excellent ones listed above, I would add:

    Profumum Roma
    Lubin
    Armani Prive

    Try the dark enigmatic Judeo-Franco vibe of of JAR...I hear it's quite an experience.
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.
    (From Maldoror by Comte de Lautreamont)
