Sorry to start another one of "those" threads.
Next time I visit Creed I shall be wanting to test the suitable summer fragrances for men.
I have already worked out that 2 of those should be Millesime Imperial and Virgin Island Water.
Please omit SMW, I have a tester already and its not to my liking.
Anything else to add to that list would be much appreciated.
Aventus and Green Irish Tweed. They can be worn all year round, and they especially do well in the summer.
Sorry ND i failed to mention I do already have Aventus.
I think its a great scent, but in warm weather I think id be more inclined to wear it as a going out at night scent, really looking for casual wear/lazy days.
Im also in the UK, so maybe are summers (or lack of them) would be something to take into consideration also.
Thank you everyone for your help.
Try Selection Verte and Jardin d'Amalfi also.
Aventus, Original Vetiver and Green Irish Tweed.
IMO, the best summer Creeds are:
Bois de Cedrat
Royal Scottish Lavender
VIW (which you already mentioned)
+2 Erolfa..quite underrated
Jardin d'Amalfi, Erolfa, Green Irish Tweed, Original Vetiver.
EROLFA=mid 1990's drug store marine scented deodorant
14 sprays of DRAKKAR NOIR should do it
I have noticed that appears to be a theme for Creed.
Having tried SMW and GIT recentley, they are instantly recognisable due to the copycat versions that flooded the market during there time.
I guess in some respects that could be viewed as a positive thing, that they appear to set trends, but id also be inclined to believe that some of there fragrances maybe smell dated, due to the association of that style of scent from a specific era.
GIT and Erolfa
I have tested Erolfa twice and the only thing I can say is it just seemed "off." Was not impressed at all. MI is already on your list. So I'd go GIT.
"As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round."
I feel Original Vetiver is extremely underrated, and not just for a Creed.
Green Valley is a summer fragrance.
GIT, a real masterpiece!
Every season, every occasion!

From the previous suggestions, I particularly second GIT and OV, though most scents mentioned above could work very well for summer wear.
