I have recently got into researching and sampling fragrances this month, and I think I am ready to make my first purchase. I have made three trips to the mall and have sampled every single fragrance that Neiman Marcus and Nordstroms have to offer .
I am looking at buying Creed's Millesime Imperial and Gucci Pour Homme II on fragrance.net where I can get them for about $180 with all of their coupons and 6% off from ebates. These are the two fragrances that really stand out at me and that I enjoy. The one problem I am having is that I am afraid people around me will not enjoy Millesime Imperial. I am going into my sophmore year of high school so I don't want people to think I smell bad. I wore three sprays today and went shopping with my mom. She said that she thought it was very feminine with its "flowery smell". I am not sure I get a whole lot of flowers in it, but I can say I do think it is not 100% masculine. I just really enjoy the whole ripe melon freshness and kind of fresh air (or I have heard sea breeze) vibe to it. I wore Gucci Pour Homme II the other day though, and she enjoyed that though. So do you guys have any thoughts on what other's reactions are when you wear Millesime Imperial?
