Depends on what you have done and exactly how the saddle creaking occurs. Don't know what you mean by grease it, lubed it up - where, with what? Can you recreate the noise by flexing the seat by hand, and if so how - flexing sides, front/rear only, grabbing on to nose and tail, straight down pressure? Sometimes when the problem is internal structure of the saddle the only fix is replacement.

put a different saddle on, if the creaking stops then that was the problem.

Yup. You don't even know that it's the saddle, do you? You're lucky if it's such an isolated issue. It could be something as small as a loose chainring bolt.
