    Well, if we allow for cost equivalency, I would replace Chanel Sycamore and Coromendel for Blue and Allure, and it would still be cheaper than the Creeds, and much better, IMHO (and I AM a fan of Aventus). Those three Chanel's would be hard to beat against many trios.

    Creed by a mile. Putting Creed in this poll is just unfair. Switch it out for Gucci: GPH1, GPH2 & Gucci Envy(still unfair?) and you have yourself a great battle royale.

    Creed = Dior > Chanel >> YSL >>> Armani

    Creed and Dior neck and neck at the head of the class, with Chanel right behind, held back only by the mediocre Allure Homme. YSL is still a winner, with Armani being the only one I'd pass on.

    Tough call but I'm going with Creed. If DHI replaced DH in your list, then it'd be a toss up between Creed and Dior for me.

    I don't think it's exactly fair to compare cheapie department store releases from Dior or Chanel or Armani to expensive Creed offerings. It would be MUCH more interesting if your Dior included La Collection Privee, Chanel included Les Exclusifs, and Armani included their Prive line. I think this would be a more even (and interesting) battle to have.

    It would certainly make it more intersting i agree, but remember what alot of people say here, price doesnt = quality and theres alot of profiles here who dont like creed for whatever reason.

    one could argue that if the chanels and diors can include there private lines then so should creed, such as jardin d'amalfi, pure white cologne, spice and wood, because thats there exclusive line, the fragrances included above are from there standard normal line, just like the others...

    Dior by a hair because of Fahrenheit as it's weight is of an 800lb(white back) gorilla and it's Robin (Dior Homme)but Creed is right there because of its own (700lb)gorilla Aventus and it's own robin MI....

    I agree with this man. Take Creed out and start over. Then you'll have a fair fight.
