12 Best Creed Colognes For Men Review
CREED perfumes and colognes come from a very long line of artists who have passed their scent artistry from father to son since the 1760s. The first generation, and founder, James Henry Creed began concocting scents from different flowers, woods, water, and other elements creating unique and distinctive fragrances that produced amazing scents. Because of his brilliant creations, Royals, politicians, and famous celebrities from different countries have 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 have continuously excelled and expanded. And they’ve done so to the point that they are now popular in Hollywood, California as well.
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 that their name has been passed down 7-generations. Creed is a name that speaks of history and excellence. Here are 12 of the best Creed colognes brought into the market from 1760 to present:
The Creed Aventus is a joint creation of father and son, Olivier and Erwin Creed, and was launched in 2010. The amazing thing about Aventus is the fruity-sweet scent it gives off in the first few hours and the leathery-smoky aroma it produces as the perfume lasts in your body afterward. 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 oakmoss, 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 qualities. Although Creed perfumes tend to be expensive, their superior quality merits the money spent for it. While this cologne’s longevity is pretty long lasting, its sillage can be moderate to heavy for some people.
The Green Irish Tweed is perhaps the signature fragrance by the sixth generation successor of the Creed brand, Olivier Creed. This was launched in 1985 and is still very hot on the market today—especially among many celebrities worldwide. This perfume by the Creed house is described to be “a walkthrough along the Irish countryside” because of its notes of lemon verbena and iris on top, violet leaves in the middle, and ambergris and sandalwood at its base. These notes are combined altogether making a fruity, fresh, and fun sensation throughout the entire Cologne.
The incorporated scents of floral and woody scents make the Green Irish Tweed perfume very unforgettable to those who experienced its aroma in the air. The moderate sillage complements the impression of a powerful but gentle masculine presence. It exudes a relaxing and romantic vibe that automatically influences the mood around you whenever your wear Green Irish Tweed by Creed.
The Imperial Millesime Spray by Creed, launched in 1995, is a unisex perfume brewed with the essence of citrus groves and is a scent that was inspired by the beautiful shores of Sicily. Therefore, the notes used in this perfume include different fruity notes, with some sea salt on top; lemon, mandarin orange, bergamot and iris in the middle; and on the base, notes of musk, wood, and various marine elements. The unique combination of these creates a wonderful and refreshing aroma in a moderate manner so that it may require you to spray it on 2-3 times throughout the day, including the evening hours.
