What Are the Best CREED Colognes for Men?

1. CREED Aventus

Aventus Cologne By Creed for Men

 When it was released in 2010 the story behind Aventus is that it was meant to be a tribute to Napoleon Bonaparte. If you look on the fragrance forums or your Instagram feed, what you will notice that there is a devoted following who swear it is the best cologne ever created. CREED Aventus begins with a pineapple note, lush and juicy, then tart green apple is used as contrast and blackcurrants add luster. Perfumer Olivier Creed uses them to create an energy few Colognes can match. The floral heart offset the base with its masculine woody notes of birch and patchouli. This is followed by oakmoss, ambergris and musk for a balanced finish. Great longevity and projection make it CREED’s greatest masterpiece. Just a single spritz on is enough to carry you all day and into the evening with style.

6. CREED Virgin Island Water

Virgin Island Water Cologne By Creed for Men and Women

In the Virgin Islands, white frangipani hangs from the cliffs, the delicate white blooms surrounded by swaying coconut trees. The opening of fresh lime and juicy bergamot, accompanied by the scent of coconut and rum, creates the sensation of drinking a cocktail by the ocean, even if you are in your backyard swimming pool. Virgin Island Water by Creed is an aquatic fragrance that will take you to the white beaches in the Bahamas when you smell it.

7. CREED Love in Black

Love In Black Perfume By Creed

CREED Love in Black cologne was created and inspired by the former US first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Each note reveals a place she loved Nightblooming wildflowers from the Greek isles where she remarried; Violet from Italy a country she loved, Iris from Florence, a favorite city and Virginia Cedarwood where she would rid horses as a young girl. The classic blend of iris and violets is offset by a hint of rose. This floral melody segues into deep rich black currant – a berry both tart and sweet, before settling into a dusky musky base. 

Despite being made for women, Love in Black’s aphrodisiac scent is certainly a fragrance that women love on men.
