12 Best Creed Colognes for men Review
CREED perfumes and colognes come from a very long line of father-son oeuvre since the 1760s. First generation, and founder, James Henry Creed began concocting scents from different flowers, woods, water, and other elements creating unique and distinctive fragrances that produce a mesmerizing sensation to the sense of smell. Because of his brilliant creations, royalties, politicians, and famous celebrities from different countries acknowledged and recognized his handiworks. From the French royal square, to the British royal courtyard, to the American White House—the Creed name of perfumes and colognes continuously excelled and expanded—and even in Hollywood, today.
For more than 250 years of brewing and mixing colognes, the CREED brand is the only dynastic perfume company in the entire world that boasts of the name Creed being succeeded from generation to generation, that is, seven in total. Here are 12 of the best Creed colognes brought into the market from 1760 to present:
Creed Aventus Creed Millesime Spray for Men
Creed Aventus is a joint effort creation of father and son, Olivier and Erwin Creed, which was launched in 2010.

The nice blend of the top to base notes are wonderfully combined together making a very bold sensation to the nose. Top notes include apple, pineapple, bergamot and black currant; middle notes include rose, Moroccan jasmine, patchouli and birch; and base notes include oak moss, vanilla, ambergris and musk.
If you want to display an aura of vision, vigor, and victory the Creed Aventus is the best choice of perfume that exemplarily manifests all three. Although Creed perfumes tend to be expensive, the superior quality it performs already merits the money you spend for it. While longevity is long lasting, the sillage can be moderate to heavy for some.
