Armaf Colognes: Try These 3 First [Start Here!]
Armaf Colognes have made a noticeable impact on the fragrance market over the last several years. Some of Armaf’s most well-known fragrances are clones of releases from the niche brand Creed. Not only are they comparable in scent, they’re also extremely affordable. In today’s article, I’m going over 3 Armaf Colognes you must try first when you start exploring this brand!
1. Armaf Milestone
Milestone is Armaf’s clone of the niche fragrance Creed Millesime Imperial. It’s a fruity marine scent, featuring sea notes, melon, red berries, bergamot, and musk.
Milestone is undeniably a summer scent. It’s effortlessly refreshing and clean, wielding a ton of mass-appeal. I can see a casual yet well-dressed man pulling this off on warmer days.
The thing I love most about Milestone though is the performance. When compared to Millesime Imperial, it lasts significantly longer on skin. Not bad for a cologne that’s a fraction of the price.
Some of my more detailed thoughts on Armaf Milestone are in my review here.
2. Armaf Sillage
Much like Milestone, Armaf Sillage takes its inspiration from another fragrance – this time, it’s Creed Silver Mountain Water (SMW).
Sillage is more of a citrusy, woody musk type of scent, with some floral elements to it. It also has a metallic note as its backbone, which is surprisingly satisfying.
Although a little piercing, Sillage is overall a very close interpretation of SMW. Sillage is at its musky, creamy best once it’s had a chance to settle on skin.

3. Armaf Club de Nuit Intense Man
The Armaf fragrance that skyrocketed the brand to popularity, Club de Nuit Intense Man is the last entry on this list that you must try!
Club de Nuit Intense Man is a clone of the ‘King’ Creed Aventus, and for a fragrance under $100, it does a pretty fine job. The main notes I pick up are strong citruses and woods, with some smokiness and leather peering through. I talk more about what I think of the scent profile in my review here.
As long as you make it past the potent opening, Club de Nuit Intense Man does some of its best work in the dry down. At this stage, the scent is practically inseparable to Aventus. Only the most devoted fragrance connoisseurs will be able to tell the difference!
So there you have it! The 3 Armaf fragrances I suggest you try first from this house. Other colognes could have made the list, but these 3 are pretty safe bets as a starting point. I’m looking forward to seeing what Armaf releases next, as this designer brand is quickly becoming one of my favourites.
