    Default Green Irish Tweed, Millisime Imperial or Aventus?

    The Aventus I tried at the department store was smokey with only bits of pineapple in the background; I was hoping for pineapple to be the dominant note.. Although I understand that Aventus differs with batches. True?

    Loved GIT and MI.

    My current humble collection consists of L'eau D'Issey Pour Homme (my everyday) and Burberry Touch.

    Which of these would compliment them well?

    L'eu D'Issey is sort of an aquatic. Burberry Touch is a very powdery scent to me. I think all three you mentioned would be quite different. If I were to own a Creed, it would be GIT. Certainly Creed's most "important" scent to date, and something out of which you'd get a ton of use.

    Taking into account the climate you live in MI is the obvious choice IMO. MI really sparkles in hot weather.
    Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?

    Personally, with your collection, I think Aventus is probably the most dissimilar, and probably the best addition.

    Talk of batches aside, Aventus is meant to be more smoky vanillic patchouli with some fruity accents. If you want a pineapple-dominant scent with a little wood support, you could try Zara Man Gold (or the older version of Zara Gold). It's much much cheaper, and less prone to the batch variation madness.

    +1 to what he said. Maybe I'm just not a fan of Aventus.

    GIT and MI are both worth owning IMO, but GIT is the one I voted for and would personally choose if I only could have one. Aventus is a definite pass for me.

    Aventus. Talk of batches is overblown. It still gives off the same vibe from a far. If you want to bury your nose into your skin like a hound and investigate, you might see small difference but yo others around you there is none. Projection and longevity are very good.

    Like all three, but if I had to pick one it would be Aventus. The ladies love it.

    Aventus

    Got two compliments off this yesterday. This stuff was projecting on me amazingly after 8 hours!!!!

    I think it was my new application method.

    So the thick smokiness I was smelling is normal?

    Most people here will probably say Aventus, but if MI or GIT to you is better, go with one of them.

    Any of the three IMO - all fine scents.

    The first one.

    I just don't like the smell of Aventus, period.

    That leaves GIT and MI. Both great scents. I live in a tropical climate, and find I wear MI more as a result. That's my suggestion.

    Further, and this is just my personal opinion, but GIT has more clones that smell closer to it, while nothing smells like a good batch of MI. Love and Luck and Unforgivable are sometimes mentioned, but they are NOT close (though Love and Luck isn't a terrible scent in its own right).
    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

    This is an age-old story, but given that I have now had the chance to own all three, my opinion is that you too will also own all three at some point. I have all three now and couldn't see myself without them.

    Millesime is the definitive summer scent, GIT the Spring/Autumn scent and Aventus is just great all year round. I would definitely rank GIT third here, with very little between Aventus and MI. In fact, my opinion might vary depending on mood.

    The post by comfortablynumbbg has already said what I was going to about Aventus so I just want to reiterate that. Don't expect a pineapple bomb from this scent. It's only a top note in an Eau de Parfum and Roja Dove explains this as follows in his Haute Parfumerie magazine (on p.29):

    The TOP of an EdP is 40% of the fragrance. This "goes after a few minutes".
    The HEART of an EdP is 30% of the fragrance. This "goes after 2-4 hours".
    The BASE of an EdP is 30% of the fragrance. This is "left to last all day".

    I would recommend GIT based off of your other two owned fragrances. However, just as the previous poster informed you, you will most likely own all 3 at some point in the future.

    Love Aventus & GIT. Not a fan of MI at all really.

    Personally I would recommend getting Aventus out of the 3, but as soon as you do, you should start saving up for GIT (or Bond No. 9 Chez Bond, which is very similar, but with a bit of a tea note, which I really like).

    I love the notes listed in MI, and I love the genre, but all I get from MI is salt water, bleach, and lemon. One of the few fragrances I would classify as a scrubber. But most people seem to really love it.

    I've got plans on getting Aventus and MI. Those and Virgin Island Water are probably going to be my next three Creed pickups. But the one I had to get first and the one that I really do think that every serious collector needs is Green Irish Tweed. Especially with Spring coming up, to me it's a no brainer.

    I've had all 3 and don't own any of them now. The one I miss the most is GIT despite all the clones.

    How about a discount bottle of GIT and a decant of Aventus?

    For your collection, Green Irish Tweed is best. I don't know a damn thing about Burberry Touch, but L'Eau d'Issey is bright in the same way that Aventus is. GIT offers you the most diversity.

    I'd definitely choose Aventus between those three. And that smoky/ashy birch note is actually my favorite part of Aventus. (I really loved that strong 2010 ashy batch that I bought as my first Aventus sample from Perfumed Court).
