    Question Is there anything better then Creed Aventus ?

    I personally believe that Creed Aventus is one of the best, if not the best male fragrance ever created.

    But since there are people who disagree on this one, I seriously ask my self if there is any juice out there that can beat Aventus.

    Can you guys recommend at least 3 OUTSTANDING fragrances that can take Creed Aventus' crown ?

    For me these three can easily beat Aventus:

    Tom Ford - Tobacco Vanille
    Amouage - Memoir Man
    Creed - Green Irish Tweed

    It's all a matter of taste though. I respect Aventus and wear it occasionally, but I dont like it as much as those mentioned.

    I am not keen on fragrances by the house of Creed, though I understand that some people really think they are the bees knees. Each to their own – it's these small differences that make things interesting!

    The 100 or scents in my collection that I have not consigned to the junk heap, as I have with my bottle of Aventus.

    I guess it would depend on which batch of Creed we're talking about.

    There are hundreds to choose from. It's like asking if there are any singers better than Justin Bieber.

    So basically we name scents we prefer to he whose name must not be uttered and then you disagree as to whether the A word has been taken down. Sounds pretty pointless.
    For what it's worth,I quite like Aventus, but there are dozens of scents I rank ahead of it. Everyone's opinions as to their top 3, 5, 10 scents are very personal and subjective.

    So convince me that this thread is anything other than a "name your top 3 scents " + "yet another Aventus argument thread"?

    There are better scents, but when it comes to versatility there are few that can beat Aventus. It's one of the best signature scent you can have.

    Hundreds of fragrances, including many Creeds -

    Bois du Portugal
    Green Irish Tweed
    Original Vetiver
    Royal Oud
    Silver Mountain Water


    Aventus is very average.

    I would write a list for you, but of the 2000+ compositions I have sniffed, over 1500 would meet the requirement if Aventus is the benchmark for "outstanding," and I doubt you would want to read it any more than I would want to write it. The easier on my fingers and your eyes answer is any of the compositions in my signature below, IMO, are far superior and would top that list of 1500+. It goes without saying I find Aventus far from outstanding, but each person has their own set of preferences, and if Aventus is your "best ever" then I am happy you have found it.

    I'm 30 and lately Aventus has been feeling borderline too young for me. Kinda weird but yeah. No accounting for taste.

    Looking for reinforcement/validation of his already formed opinions/beliefs thanks to the popularity of said scent? As increasingly seems to happen with people on both sides of politics, they seek out the news sources and discussion groups that are effectively echo chambers for them to validate their beliefs, values, opinions, whatever and assure themselves that they are right. We get confrontation instead of discussion.

    Then again, considering the history of threads on this topic I'm not sure that going for the more neutral "Name 3 scents that you prefer to Aventus and tell us why you like them better" would've been much better than the challenge to combat issued by the OP

    Aventus is great and great for compliments but batch variations are luck of the draw.

    There's many many that are better to me than Aventus but you need to narrow down what you want.
    AWAY for a month! sorry.

    Who gave Aventus a crown?

    Seriously, there are so many frags i would choose before i consider Aventus. Aventus is very good, IMO, and i have worn it a lot. Then i smelt a clone called Afnan Supremacy Silver, and Aventus went to the back of the shelf. No accounting for taste, right?

    Only 3? Aventus is very simple fragrance for me.

    -L Air du dessert Marocain
    -Terre hermes Parfum
    -Histoires des parfums 1899

    Perhaps several of the limited edition/vaulted Creeds (Vintage Tabarome, Cypres Musc, Cuir de Russie etc.)

    Obviously if the starting point is that Aventus deserves some crown then there will be probably no room to agree about 3 scents which can take it "out of it". Seems kind of rhetorical. Thousands of fragrances are miles better than it, but if you love it that much then your perspective is completely different and probably you won't appreciate most of them if not all of them - one thing excludes the other. It's like a Justin Bieber groupie asking what's better than Bieber - thousands of obvious answers would come to mind, but try to picture her face while listening to Bill Evans (or The Cure, or Chopin, or Steely Dan or whatever...).

    Another yes, I find Aventus average at best, and certainly not my favorite Creed.

    I have a hard time rationalizing of what's better than Aventus; Although I have some heavy hitters that come close.

    From the house of Creed:
    Jardin D'Amalfi
    Vetiver Geranium
    Tabarome Millesime

    Outside of Creed:
    Portrait of a Lady
    Noir de Noir
    Plum Japonais

    Off the top of my head, and limiting myself to CREED, three better than Aventus are:

    Windsor
    GIT
    Selection Verte

    But as many have stated, this is all subjective. If you like Aventus try the frags similar to it like Cedre Boise and Scent of Peace for Him.
