    It’s the battle of the greens for me: pre-2016 GIT easily, Original Vetiver and Selection Verte being the others.

    No love for Silver Mountain Water yet which is a bit of a surprise.

    Okay, I'll throw it into the mix.

    I'd also second (or fifth?) Royal Oud and GIT, both excellent.

    Would like to recommend Millesime Imperial as it is a great scent, unfortunately it just doesn't last for me.

    I like SMW, but the problem with it in my opinion is that it is very easy to find dupes that outperform it not only in terms of performance, but also in terms of scent. Whereas with Erolfa for example, I'm yet to find something even remotely similar in terms of scent, let alone a clone.

    Royal Oud and Green Irish Tweed are good to go.

    Viking

    Millesime imperial
    Currently wearing: Viking by Creed

    Default Re: Best Creed that not Aventus

    Out of those listed, I think Viking - it's a bit more modern.

    Otherwise Royal Oud, Himalaya, Original Vetiver are good options. GIT - while good, can be mistaken for Cool Water.

    Spice & Wood is nice but projection is ridiculously bad.

    Any of the following

    Viking
    Spice and Wood
    GIT
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Thinking of

    A) Creed GIT
    B) Creed Viking
    C) Creed Erolfa
    D) Creed Millesime Imperial

    Longevity is important to me.

    Appreciate in advance any recommendations

    Royal oud hands down
    It’s my first creed and IMO the best one of them all , I’d say that i smelt most of creed’s and this is the best and the most worthy of the price.
    Smelt spice&wood and i find royal oud way more interesting.

    Assert your dominance. Spray more Aventus. Be one with Aventus. Mark your territory in pineapple and birch and dropped panties.

    Ask not what else you can wear, but how you can intimidate other people in to not wearing Aventus.

    Do not surrender.

    Are we talking about personal preference, or what works best/gives most compliments in the real world?

    Personal preference: Virgin Island Water.
    Best for real world results: Millesime Imperial.

    Dont buy the original tho, bad performance and high price. There are many good clones of it.
