    Default Best Creed for an October wedding in UK for a male...

    What is the best Creed in your opinion suitable for a wedding?

    My brother is getting married in October, I am not the best man.

    I was thinking GIT for that time of year, but my biggest concern is that its not unique enough.

    Any other reccomendations would be much appreciated.

    Bois du Portugal would be very elegant for an Autumn wedding.
    Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?

    GIT I agree. Royal Oud that time of year would be wonderful!

    Windsor would be quite unique and a good choice for a special occasion such as this.

    So tell me more about your brother getting married and you not being the best man, how do you feel about that?

    The only reason why i emphasised that fact was to explain my position on the day, if that made any difference to the scent i wore, thats all...

    Whichever you like the best. Royal oud would be a good choice if you like oud.

    Lol okay cool if you were mad I was gonna say give 16 sprays of Kouros a shot. Hahaha.

    GIT is inoffensive and a favorite. Not sure what the weather is like in the UK in October here it's still fairly warm Mid 60s-mid70s.

    MI would be a good choice as well, its light and those who you get in close quarters with would be able to smell you.

    You should seek out a sample if you don't already own it. GIT would be faaaaaaaaaaantastic for an October wedding. Seriously, it'd be great for that. If you like GIT, I'd have trouble imagining a better scent for that ocasion.

    It's not by Creed, but another excellent option would be Gucci Pour Homme II.

    Thank you all for your advice.

    I have sampled GIT. Next time i get down to a store im going to sample MI and Royal Oud, im kind of thinking GIT if it turns out to be a colder/damper/darker October, or potentially MI if i like it and it ends up a milder/warmer October (it has been known to happen in Uk these last few years)

    Not sure where Royal Oud would fit in, but im looking forwward to trying them out next time i get into central London.

    You could pick so many different ones.

    I would say any of these... probably in the order I would pick from:

    1) Spice & Wood
    2) Royal Oud
    3) BdP
    4) GIT
    5) Himalaya
    6) Original Santal
    7) Original Vetiver
    8) Royal Scottish Lavender
    9) Royal English Leather
    10) Silver Mountain Water

    Great fragrance, and would be good, but for a wedding (formal situation), I think it may come off a bit brash/loud. That is why, despite it being probably my favorite, I left it off my list of suggestions.

    Green Irish Tweed is probably the only thing I like from Creed.

    Aventus is undoubtedly a fan favorite yet I think we all know what Aventus is capable of and a wedding may not be the best place for Aventus to show its face.

    The bride would want to run off with anyone who showed up wearing it... that would not be good.

    You just had to do it, didn't you?

    The guy is going to a wedding, not to a house cleaning party. Don't lough, my cleaning lady once thought I spilled some cleaning detergent on myself when I sprayed a sample of Aventus on my arm. I told her no, it was an expensive fragrance, she just laughed and pointed to a bottle of some cleaner and said it smelled just like that. And guess what - it did. That killed Aventus for me once and for all. Tried it couple more times a year later - sorry, no change - it still smells cheap, generic, and like a synthetic cleaner.

    Nope!

    I already own and enjoy Aventus. Its worn alot by me already, thats why I havent even considered it. And id agree, im looking for something that bit less mainstream, and fitting to the October/wedding theme.

    The Royale Exclusives are completley out of the question, I have no desire to pay 400 for a cologne just for one day, not even if it was my own ceremony...

    Green Irish Tweed sounds about right

    I see you have Aventus in your wardrobe, that's perfect!

    To me the first choice goes with Aventus, followed by GIT and then SMW.
    My most favorite scents that I can't be without:
    Givenchy Xeryus Rouge
    Dior Homme Intense
    Fahrenheit

    Why does it have to be Creed? Just curious. I can think of quite a few more that would suit a wedding better than a creed frag. But if it must be creed then I would have to say BdP or Royal Oud.

    Your choice of course but I suggest Baie de Genievre for then and that. Just me, of course.
