    Default Your favorite warm weather Creed fragrances

    Good morning to all!

    Living in Atlanta and not being subjected to very cold weather, most of my fragrance wardrobe is Spring/ Summer,

    I just recently added a few Creed fragrances into my wardrobe and wanted to get your thoughts.
    With the recent Creed acquisition I decided to stock up before things change with the formulations- http://scentbound.co/the-creed-acqui...-happens-next/

    Aventus- ordered a 100ML backup bottle

    GIT- Just replenished my previous 4oz with a new 100ML

    Silver Mountain Water- Used up my sample and purchased a 100ML

    Millesime Imperial- Liked this from a past sample and purchased a 100ML

    I previously owned VIW and Viking but got bored with them and parted ways.

    Which ones do you enjoy?

    I only use Aventus, Viking, Royal Oud and Sublime Vanille all year round. My favs are vaulted

    I can cover VIW with Gorse by Laboratory Perfumes but that's perfect for summer. I'd also recommend Selection Verte but I'm not sure if its available in small size versions.

    IMO, the majority of Creeds can be worn in warmer weather. Of the eight to ten that I have sampled, none of them are too heavy, dark, or cloying.

    I most especially like:
    Green Irish Tweed
    Royal Oud
    Original Vetiver
    Bois du Portugal
    and yes, even Aventus. Since we're talking warm weather picks.

    So far, seconding and preferring especially OV and GIT as warm weather choices by this house, though not excluding even REL (a quite reatrained and barbershop like tangerine citrus-floral classic leather) and Aventus (in its regular, non-cologne version) as warm weather/summer choices by this house

    The lime peel note in Bois de Cedrat is gorgeous. Perfect for the summer.

    None, I'm not really a Creed person. I have GIT, but I feel it is better in spring or fall. I do have Baie de Genievre which is excellent, but IMO better suited to cooler weather. Millesime Imperial never worked for me. Most of the other Creeds I've tried - Aventus, Royal Oud, Silver Mountain Water, Royal Mayfair, Himalaya, Bois du Portugal, Original Vetiver, Original Santal, Spice & Wood to name a few are better suited to spring/fall than summer. They just wear better in those conditions.

    I haven't tried Jardin d'Amalfi and Pure White Cologne, but based on notes/reviews it seems these ones could work well in summer.

    VIW and MI are my two favorites in the high high heat. I also really enjoy Aventus, Royal Oud, Viking and GIT in the warm weather.

    I wear any fragrance, any time of the year honestly. However, Aventus, OV, SMW, MI, PWC, and many more will fit!

    Of the creeds I own, my favorites for the warm weather (I live in the very hot and humid Houston, Texas area) are:
    Aventus
    Aventus Cologne
    Original Vetiver
    & Virgin Island Water (although I get subpar performance with this one sadly, the top/interesting notes fade quickly)

    Considering how humid it is here I still have to be careful on the trigger so it does not become cloying. I also enjoy Himalaya and Millesime Imperial but have not owned them long enough to love them. Original vetiver is an amazing one for the high heat IMO.

    I forgot to add SMW, that is an amazing one for the summer too! I think creed as a house excels in summer/warm weather frags.

    LA is normally a pretty temperate summer, so I wear most any of my Creeds anytime including BOIS DU PORTUGAL or ROYAL OUD.

    If it got really hot, VIRGIN ISLAND WATER, ORIGINAL VETIVER and MILLESIMAL IMPERIAL would work.

    Don't have GIT, AVENTUS or SILVER MOUNTAIN WATER.

    Most Creeds are very versatile, but when it's actually hot, I would mainly wear Virgin Island Water and Pure White Cologne from my collection.

    Hmm,

    In the highest heat it's:

    Green Irish Tweed (although I'm pulling for it less these days since I've grown my wardrobe)
    Royal Water (I'm pretty sure this is my absolute favorite high-heat fragrance.)
    Vetiver Geranium (it has a crisp, coolness to it)
    Pure White Cologne
    Selection Verte
    Aventus (this one is the last of the group, but is still refreshing)
    Cedre Blanc (I'm just starting to get into this one and it seems like it can work quite well in the Summer)
    Currently wearing: Sélection Verte by Creed
