None other than Millesime Imperial!

Yep, I finally took the plunge into the niche fragrance world and purchased myself a bottle of MI. I knew that after smelling MI for the first time I would eventually be purchasing a bottle. I was a bit hesitant at first after reading all the discussions about a "good" batch vs. a "bad" batch. Although MI seemed to be lower on the list in terms of batch discrepancy.

Now fast forward a few weeks and I finally get my bottle of MI. Batch code is: S3312D01

From what I can tell, this would be a 2012 batch. However, one thing that I can't decipher is why I got a "S33", from what I read the MI batches either start with A33 or C33...Can someone explain?

Upon first spray and sniff I noticed the melon note was not as strong as the sample I got. Definitely more salt than melon. Does this mean I got a bad batch?

Please let me know what you guys have heard/smelled regarding the batch of MI that I got.

Kind of on the fence on whether or not I should return it..
